#carbon-free future will need rules


Quote
Tackling climate change will need action right across society and the economy - with a host of new incentives, laws, rules, bans, appliance standards, taxes and institutional innovations.

Re: #carbon-free future will need rules


Thanks for posting that video Snowy  thumbsup

It's impressive that some countries generated more electricity ( over a six month period in 2020)  from renewables than they did from fossil fuels, things are moving in the right direction and will continue to do so  Cool

Some other countries do need a kick in the arse though.

The guy talking about burning fossil fuel to make wind turbines and solar panels and then goes on to say "we might as well just burn the fossil fuel to make electricity" What an utter numpty he is  headbang

Even if production of wind turbines was ALL powered by fasil fuels (which it isn't).


Burn fossil fuel once to make electricity and the fossil fuel and benefits are gone  Sad

Burn fossil fuels to make a wind turbine - the result is renewable energy for many years  Cheesy


As the grid gets cleaner the benefits of renewable energy will accelerate and snowball, just simple logic.

On the news they had a story that said they have found a lot of Lithium in SW UK. I hope it's not going to be too much of a blot on the landscape when they come to mine it. At least it's not a dirty fuel.

Agreed, in fact it's even better than that, the new mining process should be able to generate green energy from hot water in the ground as a by-product.

 

Also they a looking at extracting Lithium from sea water which should have very little impact on the environment, pump in sea water, filter out the Lithium and other metals then pump the water back to sea.

Re: #carbon-free future will need rules


It's satisfying to see the UK government getting even more serious about cutting CO2 emissions.

Quote
Radical new climate change commitments will set the UK on course to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, the UK government has announced.

Hitting the targets would require more electric cars, low-carbon heating, renewable electricity and, for many, cutting down on meat and dairy.
