Another way of saying this: By 2075 the world will be powered by solar panels and windmills free energy is a hard business proposition to beat. But on current trajectories, they'll light up a busted planet. The decisions we make in 2075 won't matter; indeed, the decisions we make in 2025 will matter much less than the ones we make in the next few years. The leverage is now.

ggies -- I thought you'd appreciate after some of the back and forth we've had on the subject that my wife is considering buying a pre-owned Chevy Volt.

She's been wanting a newer car for a while and had been dead set on getting a Prius. She'd be absolutely interested in a Tesla, but we really can't afford to wait until the backlog is cleared, and the charging infrastructure still isn't great for long trips yet. But, with the Volt, you get the benefit of commuting to work on Electric and being able to use gas power when you need a longer drive.

That's great to hear. It's good to start somewhere...and yeah, stupid bottlenecks for Tesla...haha. Once they fix it though, they'll be pumping them out in no time!

What part of the Midwest to do you live in though? Have you taken a look at the Supercharger network map lately? The grey ones should be in by end of next year. Now, North Dakota and Kansas area need the last bit of help compared to the rest of the country, but it's pretty much filled out now. You know your travel routes better than me though.....

Even a modest increase in sea level will imperil much of the south-eastern US’s heritage by the end of the century, researchers found, with 13,000 sites threatened by a 1m increase.

Thousands more areas will be threatened as the seas continue to climb in the years beyond this, forcing the potential relocation of the White House and Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC and inundation of historic touchstones such as the Kennedy Space Center and St Augustine, Florida, which lays claim to being the oldest city in the US.

Most people don’t reject science wholesale because they actually have a problem with the science. The same equations of radiative transfer and non-linear fluid dynamics that explain how our stoves work or how airplanes fly provide the basis of our climate models, too. Rather, people selectively reject a specific set of scientific findings: those they perceive to be a threat to their ideology or worldview, and hence to their identity.

Just wanted to circle back for a sec as a reminder to the reason I started this thread on here: Dave's lyrics. He's been singing/thinking about this stuff for a long time.....some of his music is connected in a way to what's happening now with our environment.

OSW -

"If green should slip to grey
Would our hearts still bloody beat
If the mountains crumble away
and the river dry
Would it stop the stepping feet"

AND

Monkey Man -

"I could weave a fairy tale
of great bible-thumping scale
when he stands empty hands on his empty land
that's what happened here great great monkey man

where did you think grey was the color of bliss
you think i don't know quite what to say
but i'm worried for myself in this

golden age
these golden times
our golden days seem to have us
hypnotized or blind, well... "

Did you guys see this?

PARIS (AFP) -
The World Bank will stop financing oil and gas exploration and extraction from 2019, it announced Tuesday at a climate summit seeking to boost the global economy's shift to clean energy.

"The World Bank Group will no longer finance upstream oil and gas, after 2019," it said in a statement in Paris, where world leaders sought to unlock more money for the shift away from Earth-warming fossil fuels.

And this one as well this morning:

We have seen the fall of coal. The Dow Jones Coal Index, which stood at over 723 at its high in 2008, was down over 94% to 41.36 on December 8. Just as telling, all of the companies that were its components in 2008 have disappeared. There is now only one company in the index, and it is new, cobbled together out of the wreckage of those that once were.

Since September 2016, every single month has seen a decline in generation from natural gas, compared to the same month in the previous year.
Quote:
The actual production of natural gas itself is increasing in the US, but this is not because of an increase in domestic use. The notable increase is in exports. And this brings us back to GE. The GE layoffs are not in US facilities. They are overseas. They are where natural gas produced in the US is increasingly headed.
