What is it with people in cults predicting the end of the world? As CC predictions failed over and over and have become more breathless and dire with indoctrinated people literally believing that the end times are nigh, extinction crisis imminent, they are following the typical cult demise of believing that only they, the enlightened can see what everyone else is missing and must act. Really become awfully delusional stuff over the last year or two. Beyond anything sane people can disagree over. Even mainstream climatologists who make their living by showing AGW have turned on these lefty activists.

How many foreign countries could the US military bomb, smash and destroy without fiat funny money?

I know! Let's blame it all on laissez faire!

We quantitatively analyzed conversion of the US economy to Carbon Neutrality 4 years ago.

The papers are available online via Academia.

The conversion reduced energy consumption from the curent 90 quads to 20 quads.

The conversion left US manufacturing intact, US agriculture intact.

6 kwe of PV on the roof of evrey house, 50 Kwe of PV on the roofs of every farm, 1 - 1 Mwe direct
drive wind turbine on every farm, 2Mwe of NaS batteries on every farm was sufficient to run the

I will gladly email copies to anyone interested.

This is why the plan was widely mocked:

"conversion reduced energy consumption from the curent 90 quads to 20 quads"

Assumptions are ridiculous. It only get worse when you examine other assumptions.

Estimates range from 200 million to 2-billion deaths as a result of the plan. Maniacal leftist authoritarians obviously have killed far more in previous iterations of implementing cultist ideologies. Not this time.
