“Even if one were to electrify all of transport, industry, heating and so on, so much renewable generation and balancing/storage equipment would be needed to power it that astronomical new requirements for steel, concrete, copper, glass, carbon fibre, neodymium, shipping and haulage etc etc would appear.
“All these things are made using mammoth amounts of energy: far from achieving massive energy savings, which most plans for a renewables future rely on implicitly, we would wind up needing far more energy, which would mean even more vast renewables farms – and even more materials and energy to make and maintain them and so on. The scale of the building would be like nothing ever attempted by the human race.”
global warming climate change hysteria is just the latest of its kind: doomsayers like our Little Barry Hussein, Bernie & the Hildabeast pronouncing their latest doom unless we consume less, pay more taxes, and give more power to the feckless government and its elites. You could bet their lives wouldn’t change.
