The cure is worse than the problem.
Double unfortunately, you live on a space station.
Sort-of like Professor Farnsworth’s Glow-In-the-Dark Nose Machine, which produces large amounts of toxic waste, which is at least neatly poured into chemical drums.
Just direct the smoke stacks into the CO2 scrubber…
It’s already been invented. It’s called a “tree”.
No sweat, if it will run on coal, it will run on nuclear or geothermal. In fact, you could put nuclear underground and use the surrounding rocks for geothermal.
Yep the people who bought Tesla’s, are now finding out 22% are powered by coal, 19% by nuclear, and 38% by natural gas.
Not against electric cars, although I would argue there’s a better and proven way to do electric cars rather than have more onboard storage than is needed, but the issue is we don’t have enough distribution capacity in the grid for either solution. Some places are better than others, but overall, there’s a shortfall, so if we replace too many gas/diesel vehicles with electric equivalents, we will experience brown outs even during traditionally low usage periods. Then there’s the generation shortfall that needs to be dealt with if the distribution problem ever gets addressed.
We now have atmos-fear difficulties.
Reminds me of the myth of “green” hydrogen as a fuel. Just had to be debunked again for the UK government.
That’s not bad. The original version ran on black rhinos.
Farmers, orchardists and ranchers fight global warming. The crops and pastures sequesters carbon.
Yep bout as “green” as you can get
It’s ok, so do electric cars.
Back to the drawing board, doc.
Well that certainly got everyone’s attention.
Green plants do the same thing without coal. Of course plant BECOME coal eventually.
Ah, that “clean beautiful coal” (skip the political attribution, Cliff fills the idiot quota)
