Climate Activists Blow Smoke on Wildfire Fears

“In the early 1900s, about 4.2% of land world-wide burned every year, as you can see on the nearby graph. A century later, that had dropped almost to 3%. That decline has continued through the satellite era, and 2021 is likely to end with only 2.5% of the globe having caught fire, based on data through Aug. 31,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Net Zero By 2050? Don’t Plan on It

“But the timeline for the transformation is entirely unrealistic. The politicians who make promises about how energy will be delivered within three decades can be fairly certain that they will be merely footnotes in history. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson claims that all cars sold in Britain will be electric by 2030. But he doesn’t acknowledge that on current trend there won’t be enough electricity to power all of these cars,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

China’s Ambitious Climate Goals Collide With Reality, Hampering Global Efforts

“China, the world’s largest greenhouse-gas polluter, is heading to Glasgow climate talks next week with a bold agenda: For the first time, it promises to take major steps to wean itself off fossil fuels, committing to net-zero emissions before 2060.  But in the coming decade, the country says, its carbon emissions will continue to rise, peaking sometime before 2030,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Why aren’t current wind turbine blades recyclable?

“Up until this point, blades have been made of a composite of different materials covered in resin which, like disposable coffee cups, has made them difficult to separate and recycle.  Many of the blades produced since the 1970s – when wind power became popular – are now stacking up in landfill sites. Around 3,800 turbines come out of service in Europe every year,” according to EuroNews.

Climate Change Calls for Adaptation, Not Panic

“Adaptation doesn’t make the cost of global warming go away entirely, but it does reduce it dramatically. Higher temperatures will shrink harvests if farmers keep growing the same crops, but they’re likely to adapt by growing other varieties or different plants altogether. Corn production in North America has shifted away from the Southeast toward the Upper Midwest, where farmers take advantage of longer growing seasons and less-frequent extreme heat. When sea levels rise, governments build defenses—like the levees, flood walls and drainage systems that protected New Orleans from much of Hurricane Ida’s ferocity this year,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

‘Brown recovery’ wipes out hopes that pandemic stimulus would drive climate spending

“While the analyses compiled by policy and energy experts looked at different sets of countries and used a range of methodologies, their conclusions by and large were the same: Global stimulus efforts have favored business-as-usual practices, including government support for fossil fuels, that will do little to constrain greenhouse gas emissions,” according to Politico.
