Effects of the Covid-19 Measures on the Economy and the Environment

Peter Stallinga & Igor Khmelinskii September 29, 2021 Abstract The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and governmental countermeasures are described in this work by putting it in the framework of the Energy Theory of Value. It is found that the downturn in economy is not accompanied by an equal downturn in energy consumption nor of carbon emissions. Moreover, not even the empirical fifth-power law linking the former two is any longer sustained, more so proving the state of virtualization of our economy (disconnecting it from a physical reality). It is also found that the reduction of carbon emissions had no …

Southeast Asia at Energy-Climate Crossroad

Real Clear Energy By Vijay Jayaraj | August 10, 2022 Southeast Asia is at the crossroads of choosing between a climate agenda hostile to fossil fuels and the energy security its population desperately needs. Central to the question is the use of coal. The fuel is especially critical in the production of electricity for the 700 million people of the 10 countries making up the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Electricity demand in Southeast Asia grew by 22 percent between 2015 and 2021, greater than the global average. The International …

Murry Salby responds to the attacks on his record

JoNova | August 11, 2022 Murry Salby was sacked from Macquarie University, and Macquarie  struggled to explain why, among other things, it was necessary to abandon, and strand him in Paris and hold a “misconduct” meeting in his absence. Since then he has been subject to attacks related to his previous employment. I’ve asked him to respond, which he has at length in a PDF here. The figures listed below refer to that PDF, which encompasses 15 years of events. I don’t have the resources (unlike the  National Science Foundation, the NSF) to investigate it all, but wanted to give …

The “Inflation Reduction Act” Will Do Almost Nothing That Joe Manchin Says It Will

The “Inflation Reduction Act” Will Do Almost Nothing That Joe Manchin Says It Will

By James D. Agresti | August 13, 2022 Overview In a major reversal, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D–WV) struck a deal with Senator Chuck Schumer (D–NY) to enact a major climate, entitlement, and tax bill. This legislation has been praised by President Biden, Al Gore, and other proponents of highly progressive policies. Dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022,” Senate Democrats voted to pass this bill only 11 days after releasing its 725 pages of text. Democrats are pushing this bill so rapidly through Congress that the Congressional Budget Office estimates it won’t be able to “provide a complete cost …

About the Newly Approved Nuclear Microreactor

About the Newly Approved Nuclear Microreactor

By Anthony Watts | August 10, 2022 While greens are clamoring for more unreliable wind and solar, nuclear is about to make a big leap forward with the recent Pentagon approval of the first microreactor. Here is a technical summary from the U.S. Office of Nuclear Energy. Microreactors are factory-built, plug-and-play reactors. They can be used to power military bases, disaster recovery efforts or remote locations where traditional infrastructure doesn’t exist. These mini reactors can provide between 1-20 megawatts of thermal energy used directly as heat or converted to electric power. They fit on the back of a semi-truck and …

Do the math. Reject the WEF global resetters!

Bud Bromley | August 3, 2022 Do the math. Net CO2 in air for 2020 was ~414 ppm, that’s 0.000414 * Human CO2 cannot exceed 2.58 ppm, that’s 0.00000258, i.e., the net CO2 increase due to all sources & sinks for year 2020 = 2.58 ppm. Net human CO2 cannot exceed 0.000258% of atmosphere. * 2.58/414 = 0.0062 = 0.62% Net human CO2 cannot exceed 0.62% of net total CO2 for 2020. In 1970, average net CO2 was 325.68 ppm * In 1969, average net CO2 was 324.62 ppm * 325.68 minus 324.62 = 1.06 ppm * For 2020, average …
