UPDATE JANUARY 19, 2023 – More good news for plants and the planet! The IEA sees oil demand at a record high in 2023. When will Al Gore, Greta whatever her name is, and other climate change hoaxers finally say it is too late to save the planet and save us all from hearing their BS drag on and on. FYI, humans have lived in global temps higher than today at least 4 times in the past. They adapted to temps 1-3 degrees Celsius warmer than today. Given our advances in civilization over the past 12,000 years, it is likely humans will adapt just fine if we go to what we think would be record highs. You youngsters will get to see how it goes.
UPDATE DECEMBER 25, 2022 – First, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! More quotes from Bloomberg below. There is no way this world can depend solely on so-called sustainable (an inaccurate word) energy sources. Fossil fuels are the only way until fusion is fully in place. Bloomberg quotes follow:
Oil took over from natural gas as the leading fuel for power plants in New England, a significant switch that signals how the grid is desperately trying to keep the lights on in the face of a winter massive storm. The six-state grid relied on oil for at least a third of its power generation and for as much as 40% at times on Saturday, ISO New England data show. Natural gas provided as little as 15% by mid-afternoon.
Fossil fuels gained share on other grids. After the wind died down in Texas on Friday, gas accounted for 73% of power generation that night with coal making up the bulk of the rest. Coal also gained share in the Central US grid operated by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator.
UPDATE DECEMBER 22, 2022 – Hopefully, the climate change propagandists will continue to admit it is now too late for us to stop the climate change hoax from happening. It is funny to watch someone say it is now too late to be followed by someone else saying we need to act now. Bloomberg quotes follow:
Germany is set to boost its reliance on coal as it battles an unprecedented energy crisis — even at the expense of its ambitious climate goals. Europe’s largest economy is burning the fossil fuel for electricity at the fastest pace in at least six years, data compiled by Bloomberg show. It’s also poised to be one of the few nations to increase coal imports next year. “Everyone is keeping their climate targets, but it’s true that when you face the dilemma to keep the lights on or decrease carbon emissions, the choice is to keep the lights on,” said Carlos Fernandez Alvarez, the acting head of gas, coal and power at the International Energy Agency.
DECEMBER 19, 2022 – Global coal use will surpass 8 billion tons for the first time ever!!! That is over a ton for every child and adult in the world!!! This year surpasses the previous record in 2013. That says a lot considering all of the failed ‘green’ attempts that have occurred in the past 10 years. Keep making EVs so we can use more and more coal! Also, coal prices are up 70% this year. It goes to show people can afford to pay a lot more for energy than they had been. Unless you push prices up and up you will never reach the top in revenue. After all the beating they take from the tree huggers, congrats to the coal companies for finally making a killing. Spend that money wisely!
Thankfully the use of coal produces huge amounts of CO2, which plants need to survive. We are doing exactly what we need to keep this planet healthy. Our survival depends on defeating all ‘green’ initiatives. We are doing just that.
From the bottom of their roots, plants worldwide thank us for an abundant supply of CO2.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
