Quote:
LONDON (Reuters) - Global energy-related carbon emissions rose to a historic high of 32.5 gigatons last year, after three years of being flat, due to higher energy demand and the slowing of energy efficiency improvements, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said.


Quote:
Most major economies saw an increase in carbon emissions, though Britain, the United States, Mexico and Japan experienced declines.

The biggest drop came from the United States, where they were down 0.5 percent to 4.8 gigatons due to higher renewables deployment.

Do you think I have a problem with renewable energy?

Because I believe it will transfer more slowly than most on the left, does not mean I have a problem with renewable sources of energy.

There's an uneasy, even fractious, alliance between all sorts of people on renewables.

the end point is likely to be the same regardless of how and why; fossil fuels will diminish as (a) various sweeteners make them happen (b) the tech improves/costs come down (c) fossils become legally/politically/financially less attractive.

I'm sat on a construction site in Southern England watching a waste-to-energy plant being built (on the night shift).

It's happening as we speak.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

Sure. But the end point is a long way off. Hydrocarbons will be in use for a very long time yet. Their usefulness to our species will outlive any of us.

But proportionally they will decrease. I think that's great.
