Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Fusion. The energy source of the future. And always will be. . "The most serious difficulty concerns the very high energy neutrons released in the deuterium-tritium (D-T) reaction. These uncharged nuclear particles damage the reactor structure and make it radioactive. A chain of undesirable effects ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

"the recently-emerged De growth movement advances the basic, fifty year old, ”limits to growth” case which has now accumulated a huge supporting literature. Its core point is that there is too much production and consumption going on, that this is the main cause of global problems, that eventually w...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

A focused effort by modern societies can accomplish amazing things. Witness the sudden build up and transformation for World War II by the USA. Which cost 4.1 Trillion over four years in adjusted dollars and was financed with a 94% top income tax bracket creating a de facto maximum income of $2 mill...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

World economic growth and energy consumption are highly correlated. Despite our (modest so far) efforts to displace Carbon energy sources with rebuildables, new additions of fossil fuel consumption continue to outpace additions of wind and solar by a wide margin. . . https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

The dead simple stuff is also the low value stuff. Recycling lead batteries is 99% circular because of the very high value of lead, and the desire to keep toxic metals out of the environment. I can't see why Li-ion battery recycling wouldn't be any different. 99% recycled may not equal "99% Circula...

This new battery report from 2018 confirms my suspicions that the .4 TWh/ year world total that I have seen quoted elsewhere is way high given for example that GigaFactory 1 is only at .02 TWh/ year for example. The report is showing data for 2015 delivered quantities in all sectors for Lithium cell...

We still have exponential growth rates in world wide solar and wind. Yes. World total primary energy from wind and solar stands at 2.1%. For Germany it is about 4.6%. It is easy to double the size of something when you start with next to nothing. Triple these numbers if you like for the efficiency ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Many of our ideas will turn out to be wasted moves. Agreed. Which is why we should be going full bore on all those ideas now, so we make the mistakes while energy is still (relatively) cheap and the cost of failure is low. Absolutely! A worldwide Green New Deal is essential immediately on January, ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

We’re nowhere close to being able to build out the massive energy projects required. The equivalent of 200, 10 MW off shore (or 450, 4MW onshore) wind turbines every day for the next 30 years? That’s a total pipe dream. While at the same time replacing all built out fossil fuel infrastructure with ...

UK electricity by source. 2019 is not yet in the books and it takes time to tabulate the data from 2018. This chart is the newest I can find and has only one year of data missing so cannot be refuted as totally obsolete. . . https://16iwyl195vvfgoqu3136p2ly-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads...

I'm not a big fan of Adam Smithian free market economics either but I guess the article should have said EVEN Adam Smith had thought about the limits to growth on a finite planet.

"The unfortunate fact is, degrowth is inevitable. This is because it’s a basic fact of physics—“common sense,” as Smil puts it—that GDP cannot grow infinitely on planet Earth. There’s no form of economic activity that can be completely divorced from the finite materials provided by the Earth, regard...
