When the energy going gets tough…coal, gas and oil get going.

Coal is no longer the king. Era of Oil is over. Our economies will be Carbon neutral.

These are some of the common claims that you might have heard or read in the mainstream media.

Many people truly believe that our economies are being decarbonized and getting rid of the dirty coal and evil oil. This is because they have been informed so.

However, the ground reality is strikingly different. Not only are fossil fuels still leading the energy mix, their prospects are stronger than ever.

The post-pandemic economic recovery has sent the fuel demand skyrocketing across the globe. Coal and Oil–the two most used energy resources are in high demand and their prices have touched record highs.

Unfortunately, many nations were caught off-guard, partly because of the unexpected pace of economic recovery and partly due to misleading projections about coal and oil demand.

    COP26 sponsors in revolt
    October 18, 2021

    Not all is well in the build up to the COP26 jamboree in Glasgow.

    Major corporate sponsors for the UN Climate Change Conference – including GlaxoSmithKlein, Microsoft, NatWest and Sky – are reportedly concerned about how it’s being managed.

    The criticism of Sharma may be slightly unfair, though. The gathering has coincided with a global energy crunch. And Sharma has had the difficult, possibly impossible, task of coordinating world leaders while struggling to get a clear line from the UK government about what its own precise plans might be, beyond rhetoric, on nuclear energy and net zero infrastructure. If anyone knows what the plan is please get in touch with Alok Sharma.

    Huih, I think I’ll be taking out shares in ‘Gravys gone’ . can see our Fish-in-Chief having heartburn over this now, and afterwards, no doubt spitting fire and brimstone at Doris and co.
    Meanwhile keeping a wary eye on the real weather pattern: what we are having around Nigg is NOT what they are all forecasting and here’s hoping for the Gore-effect doon there.

    Researchers suggest electric vehicles need to be made lighter

    Batteries too heavy, using too many resources, more tyre wear and road dust, bigger crash impacts, range issues…marvellous 🙄

    But we already knew all that.

    Expansion of wind and solar power too slow to stop climate change
    – – –
    Meaning too slow to generate much electricity. Who knew?

    I think the pols so badly wanted the green blob to actually work that they went hook line and sinker for the BS ‘green energy’ lie. It’s like a monster Ponzi scheme that is finally starting to be really looked at. Of course the pols are shoveling inconvenient facts under the rug and shouting “LOOK! Squirrel” while pointing to some other distraction, but the public is s-l-o-w-l-y catching wise.

    Of course for many it is a religion and they will not let go of their self beatification for saving the planet with idiot ‘green energy’ schemes and scams. I have never seen or heard of such over the top world wide scams of this magnitude until recent decades. It is scary how many and how quickly the sheeple latch onto these crusades of stupidity.

    Never mind the greenwash, here’s the reality. As we bale out of affordable reliable energy, others fill the gap.
