The Bangladeshis will finally have an opportunity to use their webbed hands and feet. No displacement necessary.

I just want to see a decent half baked plan.  The reason there isn't one is because we waited too late by decades, can't use nuclear, and China.

I see no basis for spending trillions on what will reduce global temperatures by an amount that is not measurable.

A cleaner environment, certainly, I'm for it, I'd be for displacing coal burning, but to think wind, solar, and batteries are going to do much of anything useful is mathematically absurd.  They can help, no doubt, but solve?  Not a chance, none.

It'd be like.....building a 3' wall, wouldn't it?  :88:

If your goal was to make it difficult to transport livestock, then yes.

So the Duke boys' special gift was finding inclined planes all around Hazzard County?

Turns out they were scientists.  Who knew?

much talk about China and India ignoring climate change..........

Russia, 4th in the world seems to also be doing nothing.

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s41825-019-00016-8

This article provides an overview of Russian energy policy in the context of the global energy transition. Russia, ranking fourth in the world in primary energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, adheres to the strategy of “business as usual” and relies on fossil fuels. Decarbonization of the energy sector is not yet on the horizon: a skeptical attitude towards the problem of global climate change prevails among stakeholders. GDP energy intensity remains high, supported by relatively low energy prices and high cost of capital. The share of solar and wind energy in the energy balance is insignificant and is not expected to exceed 1% by 2040.

‘Decarbonisation’ may be the wrong goal for energy – here’s why

https://theconversation.com/decarbonisation-may-be-the-wrong-goal-for-energy-heres-why-148388

The authors looked at correlations between energy policy and emissions. They noticed that countries pursuing nuclear power don’t tend to have significantly lower levels of carbon emissions, while those committed to renewable energy do tend to be linked with significantly lower national emissions overall. While the study looked at data from 1990 to 2014 and only revealed statistical relationships rather than direct causes, it did show clearly for the first time that countries investing in nuclear power don’t necessarily reduce their carbon emissions.

There’s an important lesson here. If the objective is simply decarbonisation of electricity, then all low-carbon energy sources can be considered equal. But when it actually comes to reaching net-zero emissions as quickly as possible, not all low-carbon energy sources are equally useful.
