I didn’t start the old discussion again; I responded to your new falsehood about geothermal. You then started up with the things you always do–straw people distortions, distractions, irrelevancies, impossible expectations, etc. so you could distract from the spuriousness of your arguments. You want proof that we can build what we need in 10 years or you claim (or imply) we shouldn’t try. That’s insane. You asked for Plan B, implying that any plan would be invalid or wouldn’t be worth doing without one. Plan B is obviously that we do it in 10 years and 1 month, Plan C is 10 years and 2 months… It’s a literally incredibly stupid question about something we HAVE TO DO. (I’ve linked repeatedly to evidence for that.)
And it’s obvious we can do it based on numerous estimations of the percent of global GDP it would take (all under 3%) for decades-long efforts. Even using 10% of GDP wouldn’t be any more than WWII took, and might mean at the most a small sacrifice by the very rich. (Or a big sacrifice by the very poor if we don’t change our economic system.) You want the equivalence of pre-WWII proof that England and the US would win. That’s not just ridiculous, it’s despicably dishonest. The fallacy of impossible expectations is a common technique used by climate denying delayalist trolls and anti-renewable fanatics.
In the end I had no intention to come back to the conversation about whether we could do it or not because we obviously can, we obviously have to, and because you’re nothing but a denying delayalist troll whose opinions don’t matter and whose tactics make a real conversation impossible.
In the end you’re using a meta-Gish gallop to try to create doubt–Type 2 Whataboutery, or endless false questions that fail to land but are just meant to create doubt. The infinite regression deception is meant to keep anyone from realizing the questions are bogus. T2W is like climate-denying delayalists’ belief in climate science as a house of cards they could bring down by creating the appearance of doubt in some aspect(s) of the evidence. I’ve run across it in hundreds of ARFs.
Your arguments have from the start been garbage dressed up in citations that mean nothing applied to this discussion. (Italicized so I wouldn’t have to put up with your inevitable distortion of that bit.) I stopped caring long ago whether you believed any of it or would be honest or sane enough to give up the attacks, and then I stopped arguing because I’m sure there was no one left reading–and I had better things to do. Then you made new false claims on a new discussion with new people who might be misled by your ARFism.
You may or may not be doing all this deception consciously; it doesn’t matter. You’re either lying to yourself or to all of us. You should find a way to stop.
