A few weeks ago I spotted this quote:" "Climate change" is just a mental tattoo -- a phrase we invoke with an air of scientific sophistication to give some sense of knowledgeability about the unknowable."That statement pretty much sums up the whole thing. Climate 'science' has become boring, mostly dotting i's and crossing t's (or worse yet, crossing i's and dotting t's). Even if we assume the science is 'settled', the policy discussion is even more boring - infeasible solutions that even if successfully implemented would very possibly leave us worse off than doing nothing (such has having inadequate electricity and fuel for heating during the winter).(source)
as a "program" we have moved on from science to engineering.
The substance you mean is -of course- petroleum, usually called oil. (But coal is also a form.) And its uses are myriad, as I'm sure you know. With what would you replace it?For heating and fuel, there's electricity -- and the obvious source is nuclear power. (I'll let you explain why it hasn't caught on...)For chemical manufactures, there's what, exactly?
Climate science was politicized for decades by science denialists, but it doesn't matter that much anymore. There were dozens of those threads on old D&D, but the world has moved past that now.
Again: What generates the electricity? Some areas maintain hydro facilities, but they are increasingly disfavored. Where is the push for nuclear generation?
To supply the terrestrial grid [from space] makes no sense, even if it were feasible.
and you Americans on parking lots
