His experiment. " Suppose you are standing on a bus and it suddenly takes off. You fall backward". He says "because you have just run into a wall of vacuum energy".

Total primary energy by source for Netherlands is 91% coal, oil, and natural gas. Coal consumption is stated to have increased from 2011 to 2016. https://www.ieabioenergy.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/CountryReport2018_Netherlands_final.pdf . . https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/81255835...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Here is an interesting study on the recent solar plus battery installation on Samoa which attempts a 100% electrical production of 150 kW average with no further diesel generation. It was calculated that it would indeed cover the historical consumption for all but 4 days in a year. The stated Cap co...

Solar PV has an annual capacity factor of 14% in North East USA. And 5% in January. Less all across Germany and Eastern Europe and Russia. . The 50kW solar site at ecovillage Ithaca, NY had 15 out of 18 days near zero in January 2018. . . https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/s960x960/692380...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

"The Permian Basin – spanning west Texas and southeast New Mexico – has become the most prolific oil field in the world. That remarkable growth in the Permian and elsewhere has made the U.S. the world’s top oil and natural gas producer, a far-fetched idea just 20 years ago." . They state a total rec...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Molten fuel reactors have the advantage of being capable of a design which is 100% walk away safe indefinitely for passive decay heat. Current solid fuel rods in cooling pools require pumps and water. If employees don't show up for work to keep things running, the pools will run dry and burn with ra...

I guess you didn't follow the water "day zero story of South Africa the last two years. They were stated to be within a day or two of the taps literally running dry. As far as the filters solving anything, I was more thinking of the villages all over Sub-Sahara Africa where the families choose one o...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

A return to a Medieval way of life. As fantasy fiction it blows Blade Runner into the dystopian weeds. Actually, my experts are predicting the coming correction of GDP (10 years left?) to be a drop of 30%. Which takes us back to the 1980's level of world wealth and will feel only slightly harsher t...

But truth comes from evidence, not from narrow sources of opinion. I would encourage you to read more widely.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Access to energy and resources does not have to stop dead to be catastrophic. It only needs to peak over the top in a few strategic areas which will constrain economic growth. It only takes going from +2%, to -2% to start the complete collapse of the debt based world financial system. Weaker countri...

No, it will most likely happen when something better replaces it - which is the same thing that caused peak horse, and peak locomotive, and peak coal (at least in the US.)
