It should go without saying that I’m ignoring the troll farm here. The fossil fuel industry wants to waste our time and energy.
Now, I want, like, “effort” in the global effort.
Effort is when we displace natural gas with maybe 90% stored solar and 10% (hopefully renewable) electricity for heating at least 90% of all buildings in the winter. Effort is when we at least try to get the engineering done for this project. It’s actually pretty easy and fast!! Unfortunately you’d never know that talking to most or all of the big green organizations.
Next on the list, we have solar for sunny day electricity and fracked natural gas for nighttime electricity. What’s wrong with this picture? That’s right, we want stored solar (or something similar) for nighttime electricity. This would just about finish off the fracking industry. So, who’s designing and building all of those prototypes? <crickets!> <and crickets every single blinking year forever and ever!!>
Next, do freeways make your asthma worse? Sure, electric cars are better. Now, what’s 90% more lifetime energy-efficient (and otherwise far better) than electric cars? This climate goal will be work but it will pay off. Poor oil industry!
So, please ask quite pointed questions of your green organization. Where is the cure?!! Who is working on it?
Turning your own lights off for an hour is a start, but why not turn the entire fossil fuel industry’s lights off!
