The media is lying to young people about green energy and electric cars, here’s how…
China Solar Panel Production Going Down 50% in 2 years.
China makes 80% of the world’s solar panels. That’s why they’re so cheap.
2017 = 53 Gigawatts
2018 = 33 Gigawatts
2019 = 25 Gigawatts
In 2 years China’s solar industry will be cut in half.
Reason: Solar energy subsidies in China are unsustainable.
When high oil prices triggered the 08 crash, banks dropped interest to 0%, just as fracking got started. The reason banks are trying to inch up rates is so they can lower them again after the next crash, but frackers can’t handle any rate increases.
Yet emissions from fracking are 5X higher than reported.
Remember in 2015 when we promised a $100 billion/year to poor countries for climate change? Well it’s 2018 and those dumb fucks are still holding their breath.
But climate models don’t account for permafrost carbon releases. The permafrost has always been like a carbon bank, and is now turning into a carbon bomb.
The soil is turning from a carbon bank into a carbon bomb.
The rainforests are turning from a carbon bank into a carbon bomb.
The oceans are set to turn from a carbon bank, into a carbon bomb.
Each of these carbon banks are turning into carbon bombs, and together form a carbon cluster bomb. It gets worse because guess what happens when you set off a cluster bomb in a hothouse earth?
Earth Will Cross the Climate Danger Threshold by 2036
Only 3 years to save 1.5 C climate target | That was 2 years ago.
We have to reduce emissions 50% in 10 years to stay under 1.5 C. | Claire Fyson 2018

Yet, new research says that non-modelled wetland and permafrost emissions will knock 5 years off our carbon budget for staying under 1.5° C.
We have to reduce emissions 100% in 20 years to stay under 2 C. | Stefan Rahmstorf 2017

2 C = Disaster | James Hansen 2015

1 C = Dangerous Climate Change | James Hansen 2013
Back in 2013, many said James Hansen was wrong. Look outside, we’re at +1 C already, do you think he’s wrong? But it gets worse.
By 2020 about 30-40% of the world will be short of water.
Earth has lost 33% of arable land in 40 years
Only 60 Years of Farming Left (Sciam 2009)
There has never been a 100% energy transition in all human history. We still burn wood, humanity’s oldest fuel. Europe gets 50% of its so-called renewable electricity by burning wood products.
Vaclav Smil: Our transition from fossil fuels will take decades—if it happens at all.
CONCLUSION: We have to reduce fossil energy in 100% in 20 years, and a 100% renewable energy transition takes 70 years to accomplish. We will run out of water, food and soil before we reach 100% renewable energy.
