Maybe M2C2 really is all about money

While the existence of M2C2 (man-made climate change) is well established, and the options for mitigating it are well known, two factors which haven't been talked about much are the transition costs and the risk of a transition collapse: a global economic recession/depression due to a too rapid transition which eliminates too many petrochemicals too soon before enough alternatives have been brought on-line. Take for example this article:

Thoughts?

There is no need to be rude for the sake of it, Earthling.

Earthling - Yes, as I said in another thread, this kind of transformation, to be completed, will likely take many decades, or perhaps a century or more. If done too rapidly, though, we could have a serious shortfall in energy resource liquidity. Evidently there is a balance to be drawn between getting it done A.S.A.P. and getting it done right.

I view this problem as if we're in a boat heading down a river with a waterfall 1 mile ahead, but it takes 2 miles to turn the boat around. Therefore, business as usual is not an option. While we could run the boat aground, that would be a metaphor for bursting the "carbon" bubble too early.

The nonexistence of M2C2 is well established by those who aren't members of the religion...

One cannot "mitigate" that which does not exist. One cannot mitigate that which cannot be defined due to its nonexistence.

So, yes, it's all about the money, ...and the bloating of government, the redistribution of wealth and the punishing of successful businesses for the capitalism they represent.

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

My question wasn't intended to be rude.

Hi IBdaMann,

Actually, I'm about to show by a falsifiable model that M2C2 (man-made climate change) does indeed exist by:

1. First demonstrating the falsifiable model that proves climate change science exists, then...

2. Addressing the falsifiable model for the "greenhouse effect," after which...

3. I'll go on to demonstrate the falsifiable model for M2C2.

However, as this is off topic for this thread, please join me where it is on topic at:

A falsifiable model for the existence of Climate Change Science


I look forward to your participation and comments!

I created that thread for you already. I got it started for you.
