If you were not a living, breathing human, we would be at a complete loss. They will rue the day they turned their backs on humanity. On this planet.
A new video has appeared that tried to summarize “a short letter to investors,” in an hour and a half. From The CEO of Black Rock. He talks about “long-term re-investment” in sustainable energies. Some folks fell for it right away. His “long-term” is not your, or my long-term. He talks about measured re-investments of 40-50 years.
Here is the video for your entertainment…
“A measured re-investment over 40 to 50 years” is NOT a solution
What does 40-50 years mean? It means do nothing significant for the next 30 years, transition to “natural gas” (still a fossil fuel BTW) as the World heats up. As people die. As the Congo Rainforest goes up in smoke.
What is wrong with natural gas? Well, in the USA, our CO2 emissions skyrocketed as electricity was transitioned to natural gas from coal in 2018. This has all been documented to the point of nausea. Now 33% of all electricity is associated with natural gas.
If 100% of electricity came from natural gas – as Black Rock suggests – our CO2 emissions would actually INCREASE!
IF we transition 100% of electricity to natural gas, we will actual INCREASE THE OUTPUT OF CO2 Emissions!
Emissions Gap Report 2019
As the world strives to cut greenhouse gas emissions and limit climate change, it is crucial to track progress towards globally agreed climate goals. For a decade, UNEP’s Emissions Gap Report has compared where greenhouse gas emissions are heading against where they need to be, and highlighted the best ways to close the gap.
What’s new in this year’s report?
Update on emissions gap
The report presents the latest data on the expected gap in 2030 for the 1.5°C and 2°C temperature targets of the Paris Agreement. It considers different scenarios, from no new climate policies since 2005 to full implementation of all national commitments under the Paris Agreement. For the first time, it looks at how large annual cuts would need to be from 2020 to 2030 to stay on track to meeting the Paris goals.
