How exactly is Net Zero sustainable?

with 3 comments

The forecast lithium demand to meet the Net Zero targets look to be completely unachievable. That is an enormous amount of new mining that would no doubt be opposed by self described environmentalists. The story of global growth and prosperity from the industrial revolution is tightly entwined with use of energy starting with coal, other fossil fuels and nuclear. It seems to me the underlying socialist green agenda is happily to take us all back to an agrarian lifestyle. They decry growth and seem happy to leave the undeveloped nations where they are and take the world down to their level, rather than encourage the use of fossil fuels to bring everyone forward.

  1. How is it achieveable?

    By ignoring basic economics, and the ends justify the means. The latter in itself is ignorance on a large scale, but thats down to a poor education system, and a political system and leaders who are a product of it.

    A this energy source grows it will eat itself. The pollution hidden and disguised in the mining and use of it will eat the benefits it supposedly should produce. Vast dumps of used toxic batteries batteries for a kick off.

    The market devolve our answers to our energy needs over the last 350 years but anyone who thinks our political masters and the bureaucracies can achieve the same is sadly deluded.

    Ergo: there are a lot of deluded ignorant people out there.

  3. It doesn’t matter if it’s achievable or not. These idiots will bankrupt nations try and turn back the tide.

    A sensible course of action would be to invest in nuclear power, so we can survive the approaching ice age.
