According to the latest report from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the planet is doomed if we don't get down to zero carbon emissions by 2100. Only, then, can the world begin to reverse the build up of atmospheric CO2 which they claim is causing global warming and climate change.
So, what would 2100 look like if the emissions did go to zero?
Well, I guess the world would be vegan. All those CO2 exhaling and flatulence producing domestic cows, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs, turkeys that humans have a taste for will have to go. Pets, too, would have be banned for the very same reason.
Somehow airplanes will need to fly without producing CO2. Maybe using hydrogen as fuel. You know, the gas that the Hindenburg was filled with when it exploded.
Of course, all of us will be driving electric cars. Long haul truckers will have to park every few miles to recharge their batteries, and your packages and goods might take considerably longer to get to market or delivered to you home. But, that's a small sacrifice to save the planet.
We'll also have to give up our fireplaces and gas stoves and, no more charcoal or gas barbecues. For sure, no wood burning will be allowed in order to cook or keep warm. Campers, you've been warned!
But, then, too, the world's beautiful and natural landscapes will become havens for solar panels and wind turbines as far as the eye can see. Both of these green technologies will continue to kill off the world's birds and bats, but that will be a good thing since birds and bats also exhale CO2.
However, there's one carbon producer that I can't predict the future for. The world's population of humans. They too, exhale CO2 and there will be an estimated 11 billion people pumping out 900 grams or roughly 2 pounds of CO2 per day per person by 2100. That amounts to 724 lbs of carbon dioxide per person per year. Short of killing off the world's population, I don't know how the "problem" of human respiration can be resolved. But, maybe that will have to be done to save the human race from global warming and climate change. Right?
The point here is that the IPCC report is off-the-wall ridiculous and mentally unhinged. Its this kind of silliness that is turning people off to climate change issues. We've had 18 years of stagnant global temperatures and the link between rising CO2 levels (rising about 2% per year) is broken. Yet, the UN and most liberal politicians alike, keep getting even more dire in their predictions and more drastic in their CO2 reduction goals.
