@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC So there are two separate things here. The actual reducing CO₂ emissions because of climate change, of which electricity generation is the (most) important but not only factor. And a bunch of other things that are related but don't need to be part of the same bill ultimately.1/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC On the latter, just briefly, the Dems want to be careful of only messaging to the woke, and ignoring all those people in historically Republican suburban districts that they won in 2018. I mean Virginia Beach is now held by a Democrat. 😮
That aside does #GND reduce CO₂? 2/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC Given the fairly clear intentions signalled by @AOC & co in that FAQ, one has to seriously doubt it. But the data matters. So here is what California looks like on a typical day (& night):… 3/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC Note how small the *actual* amount of storage is, which will grow in the future but not ever be enough. In summer, solar can peak up at ~9/10GW only to drop to zero in the late afternoon just as demand picks up. Storage would need to be ~15GWh just to handle that part. 4/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC Gas handles that in reality, both in-state & from places like Arizona. Bottomline is that a solar, wind & gas system comes in ~300gCO₂/kWh; which is not good enough for climate change.
And California is scheduled to shut its last nuclear plant, making the task harder. 5/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC Speaking of nuclear power plants, New York is also closing Indian Point; primarily at the behest of @AOC-type voters. And they protest gas plants & fracking, but it doesn't make for good optics when *their* activism makes it necessary for new gas plants to replace Indian Pt. 6/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC This fits the dictionary definition of good intentions paving our way to hell.
There are several more of these gas plants coming to New York City btw. 7/x…
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC You would think that if @AOC & her band of campus activists really meant it, they would be demanding Indian Point stays open.
If people are serious (& I am) about climate change then facts matter. The data matters. 8/x…
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC The perverse thing is that New York City is locked into *higher* CO₂ emissions now. It's ridiculous.
And just quietly, this happen yesterday too. 9/x…
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC Now if you checked out that CO₂ electricity map, you might have noticed the low emissions out of Ontario, Canada (~40% of their population). That's because they eliminated all coal-fired power stations. 10/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC So it's doable. The tricky part is that all those people on the Left have to suck it up & prove they really mean it on Climate Change. By accepting parts of an overall solution they really don't like, but will get the job done. 11/x
@JadeRhinos @Proverbs1_7 @WoundedLiberal @brianefallon @AOC There's a bunch of people who discuss this kind of stuff *all* *the* *time*. #EnergyTwitter
This guy is one of them, and there's a whole bunch of smart people to follow on twiiter if any of you are interested. 12/12
