Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

"Just do the math. As a minimum, every additional person needs a certain quantity of food to eat and clean water to drink. Extra people could, in theory, live without roofs over their heads, but no one wishes for a world with more homeless people. Beyond basic needs for food, water, and shelter, mor...

But does that mean ALL hydrogen we'll ever see was created then?
Yes. Elements are generally neither created nor destroyed on Earth barring natural radioactive decays or high tech human nuclear processes. Some Helium is slowly blown away by solar wind despite Earth's protective magnetic field.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Approximately 15 billion years ago the universe began as an extremely hot and dense region of radiant energy, the Big Bang. Immediately after its formation, it began to expand and cool. The radiant energy produced quark-antiquarks and electron-positrons, and other particle-antiparticle pairs.At firs...

"And no, the currently proposed Green New Deal won’t do it. Here, then, is what an effective “Green New Deal” might look like: 1. Formal recognition of the end of material growth and the need to reduce the human ecological footprint; 2. Acknowledgement that, as long as we remain in overshoot — explo...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

The human mind can dream up many more ideas than what can exist in the real world. Round trip Hydrogen is probably still well under 40% efficient and very expensive and makes no sense whatsoever for grid scale stationary storage. The unfortunate reality is that future energy availability is going to...

We know we can produce enough food for 11 billion people. We already do; and we waste it because we can.
All due to fossil fuel. Which will be leaving us soon either by decision or depletion.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

First graph is a bit older but i'll take it. Last one is a projection. Got better data? One interesting thing of note is that we had a global huge dip in all sorts of energy usage.. one would think this would lead to reduced co2 output and less warming.. but it just didn't.. Here's one from the EIA...

"Our findings show that the annual average CO2 concentrations will still increase through this year, even though emissions are reducing. Across the whole year, we estimate CO2 levels will rise by 2.48 parts per million (ppm). This increase is 0.32ppm smaller than if there had been no lockdown – equi...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

But a carbon tax is just a money grab on based on a theoretical benefit IE they are expecting you to “believe” in the returns. You need to read the proposal of H.R. 763, It is designed to give back all of the fees as dividends to every tax payer so that only above average consumption will equate to...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

It's not supposed to work that way with increased profit margins all along the way. The intent is that this Carbon tax plan would be revenue neutral to the middle class and down while spurring the market forces to allow a replacement of Carbon energy by increasing it's cost. As it also forces effici...

Hard to predict. Political will seems to be to lower the electricity price and to give money for energyefficiency improvements in buildings and maybe some money for electric and hydrogen charging infrastructure. We will see what happens, lowering the EEG tarrifs für example is not so easy to do wit...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

For heating and small enterprises CO2 prices of 25€/t will be added to fossil fuels starting in 2021 and thos prices will grow to 55€/t in 2025. This will have an impact to shift heating from oil+gas to heat pumps. Do the revenues from Carbon taxes enter into a general tax fund or are they earmarke...
