New EU targets on renewable energy Can an entire town run on solar? 2 days ago   01:31

European Parliament
The European Parliament is promoting the use of renewable energy sources, with new ambitious targets driving the EU towards its climate change goals. The EU wants to keep citizens at the centre of the energy transition, by protecting self-consumers, promoting energy efficiency first and boosting cleaner transport.

Are you a renewable energy salesman who wants the chains cut from your
feet that keep you from going stellar with your sales? Its not you,
its the industry that holds you back! I am a scientist and an
electrician, and I can show you how to put your foot to the floor and
red line your sales tach! Come see what has been missed by the
renewable industry!
So you can buy lithium batteries all over the world like twice cheaper than in Europe. Amazing initiatives to promote renewables. :)))))

Energy sector as a whole is the single largest market in the world, amounting almost $ two trillions per year and growing, demands is much more acute in fossil fuel deflection scenarios, hope breakthrough inventions and innovations will help to flourish the renewable energy sector and economy as a whole.
Thank God for President Trump keeping the USA out of the fraudulent Climate Accord!
Renuables, the big lie. All this stuff is highly subsidized by the government at tax payers expense. To make it worse it hardly reduces co2 emissions and in some cases increases it.

*Extinction Rebellion* and the mother of all bombs,
99% of Rhinos gone since 1914.
97% of Tigers gone since 1914.
90% of Lions gone since 1993.
90% of Sea Turtles gone since 1980.
90% of Monarch Butterflies gone since 1995.
90% of Big Ocean Fish gone since 1950.
80% of Antarctic Krill gone since 1975.
80% of Western Gorillas gone since 1955.
60% of Forest Elephants gone since 1970.
50% of Great Barrier Reef gone since 1985.
40% of Giraffes gone since 2000.
30% of Marine Birds gone since 1995.
70% of Marine Birds gone since 1950.
28% of Land Animals gone since 1970.

28% of All Marine Animals gone since 1970.
97% – Humans & Livestock are 97% of land-air vertebrate biomass.
.01% – What percentage humans & livestock were 10,000 yrs ago.

50 years until all the soil is gone.
2030 = 40% more water needed + 30% more land + 30% more energy
2018 = The world passes 100 million oil barrels/day for the first time.
2025 = In 7 years oil demand grows 7 million barrels/day.

We have to reduce emissions 50% in 10 years to avoid 1.5 C.
We have to reduce emissions 100% in 20 years to avoid 2.0 C.
100% emissions reductions will take 70 years says Vaclav Smil.

Electricity production is only 20% of all the world’s total energy demand.

If renewables = 25% of electricity production, then renewables = 5% of total world energy demand.

f renewables = 40% of electricity production by 2040, then renewables = 10% of total world energy demand.

*Fix It Instructions*

The top 10% earners = 50% emissions, if taxed to middle income equivalent, emissions will decline 33%.

If we tax the top 30% of earners to a middle income, emissions will decline 999% faster than any thing else we tried so far.

We have 10yrs to reduce emissions 50%, and 20yrs to reduce emissions 100%.

100% private carbon credits will unite the left and right and stop an ideological race/sex war. After taxing the rich to pay for education and health, you add a 100% private carbon tax which will act as a Basic Income currency worldwide. All America has to do to fix their county is cut the Pentagon budget 50%. These are the kind of actions needed to save mankind, worrying about your identity is for pub nights.

*Break It Instructions* Fascism infects Socialism, Capitalism and Communism equally. Young socialists say there is no difference between male and female. They also say that since there’s more variation within each race than between races, then race is purely a social construct. They say that race and sex are social constructs. They also say white males are to blame. So, we are ruled by 2 social constructs. White and male. I knew whitey had it in him. We’re ruled by ghosts. These are the people you’re depending on. Brainwashed puppets.

The 1st female Secretary of State starved 500,000 Iraqi children to death.

The 2nd female Secretary of State destroyed Libya. She’s bi-sexual.

The 1st Black President destroyed Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.

Blacks, gays and women are every bit as evil as white men.

50% of European renewable energy comes from burning trees imported from all over the world.

Can an entire town run on solar? New EU targets on renewable energy 2 days ago   09:10

In an attempt to “do it the right way,” developer Syd Kitson is building Babcock Ranch, an 18,000-acre planned community just north of Ft. Meyers, with hope that it can operate almost entirely on solar power. So far about 200 people have moved in, though Kitson is aiming to lure as many as 50,000 in coming decades, while setting a precedent for responsible development. Hari Sreenivasan reports. This is part of our ongoing series, “Peril and Promise: The Challenge of Climate Change.”
