The key phrase is "depending on the model and assumptions". In other words it's speculation using computer models with the usual junk science suspect: RCP 8.5

RCP 8.5 was derived at a time when the predominant source of energy worldwide was coal. The world has moved on and is less reliant on coal mainly because burning it is horrendously inefficient. But we haven’t yet seen the end of advocates for the burning of dinosaurs and fish to so does RCP 8.5 seem like it’s going to happen, no but who knows certainly not “merchants” like yourself PA ElGrande.

You may want to check out the coal numbers again. The largest consumers in the world are not changing their tune.. Said government also cut solar subsidies as it was making electricity too expensive, they also working away on nuclear power.

Getting reliable numbers for energy returned on investment (EROI) is quite difficult as there is not one standard to calculate it, for instance with random energy sources like wind and solar you have to factor in standby power.


Here is some more background outlining how RCP 8.5, the "business as usual scenario" is being abused to create scary headlines.

The first link you posted was from 2018. Things have changed since then. There is no money in fossil fuels.

The second link was extracted from a climate change deniers ravings.

The YouTube link clip from a guy, John Robson and his company nexus is in the pocket of big oil.

There's really no point in discussing these things online, you'll never change people's minds and there are quack scientists out there that can be referenced for any viewpoint these days. The prevailing science seems to be that man made climate change is real, I guess we'll find out in the coming decades.

No money you say . . . Tell that to this guy.



40% of Europe's gas comes from Russia. Without gas, coal and nuclear (via interconnect), Ireland's electricity grid can no longer be subsidised or function reliably with random energy generation.

Have you looked at the raw material requirements to build the new electric powered economy within the 30 year timeline proposed? We’re looking at billions of tons of metals and minerals, trillions of tons of ores, and mines, processing plants and factories all over the world.

Another flawed and redundant rebuttal!

Remember the post I put up about radium, a radioactive element, being in the waste from fracking that’s was poo pooed by GL well here is again raring it’s head in another report.

I poo-pooed it for a very good reason; it was wrong, unless you think a dose of radiation equivalent to eating 60 bananas a year is dangerous. Have a read back in case you missed it.

Did they find any Radium in public drinking water in your latest link (at least you posted one this time)? Nope.

If you really think there isn't you're fooling yourself!

All the data presented here is from the US NOAA.

This guy is who you reference, come on
“Longtime Climate Denier Tony Heller Gets YouTube Ban For COVID Denial”

Who is Tony Hellar?, he is not a climate scientist thats for certain,
https://tonyhellerakastevengoddard.c...s-tony-heller/

Other articles, and a YouTube clip
https://www.desmog.com/steven-goddard/
https://www.reddit.com/r/ClimateOffe...a_adjustments/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjPkclkZh6o

And if thats not enough for you this guy Tony Hellar real name Steven Goddard claims that NASA is manipulating the data and he thanks to the Australian senator Malcom Roberts for his efforts in exposing the fraud. Well lets just listen to Malcolm Roberts debate the physicist Brian Cox on the issue,

Tony Heller shows the data, and the data shows that climate alarmists have been manipulating it in their own publications. It is so blatantly obvious based on what he shows, that one would have to be wilfully ignorant to deny the data manipulations.


FYI: Ottmar Edenhoffer is a member of the Irish Climate Change Advisory Council
.


Really, if doomsday predictions throughout history were actually true, we would not be here today.
