About: The End Of Coal - Where next for the fossil fuel phase out?
Didn’t know u had a patreon page because I rarely have time to do more than watch the vid on my mobile, meaning I don’t hit the down arrow to see more info. Your effort invested in each one of these great vids is worth a lot, so I suggest a mention that you have a patreon link in the description. Just need to add voiceover at end such as ‘if you found this video informative, please consider becoming a patreon supporter using the link in the description “
"Britain has gone 6 days not burning coal" is being met with even more coal burned somewhere else in the world to produce, maintain and repair vessels, pipes, pumps, rigs, power distribution hubs, solar panel replacement, wind turbine lubricants and spare part that bring power into Britain to keep it up and running!
“No Energy store holds enough Energy to extract, collect and utilise an equal amount of the total Energy it stores.
No energy system can produce sum useful energy in excess of the total energy put into constructing it.
This universal law is applicable to all energy systems - the sun, nuclear fission and fusion, wind, solar, hydro, galaxies and you name it.
Humans have never managed and will never manage to extract, collect and utilise one unit of excess Energy expanding less than one unit of Energy – all along.
All forms of power production humans have today are gold-grade fossil fuels derivatives.
This includes shale oil and gas.
Energy, like time, only flows from past to future” (The Fifth Law).
Aggressive reductions in burning coal will be unable to stop climate change once the permafrost warms and begins to release massive amount of methane and other green house gases. The new normal will make parts of the globe uninhabitable for centuries to come. Prepare your children and grandchildren for this inevitability.
Awesome awesome awesome!!!! Other countries could do the same if they understood the value of energy saving devices vs new energy. The cost of saved energy is infinitely cheaper than he cost of new energy, and that’s not even thinking about the true social cost of fossil energy
Carbon free by 2025 or coal free by 2025?
We should of been here 20 yrs ago. We need to be more regressive. Net 0 by 2030.
Long way to go but hopefullly progress accelerates. This is good news because the cheaper source (renewables) will win out
Thanks for watching and sorry for the slight audio glitches!
