U.S. 50% of the way to carbon-free generation

The projected increase didn't happen. We're only half as bad as we thought we would be!
(In other news, Congress is 50% of the way to balancing the budget.)

Poor cow, what must the free range cattle think! But then I’d hate to be the field tech person maintaining these methane collectors. I wonder if these guys get paid as well as the San Francisco human potty picker uppers? 🧐

I bet you more carbon emissions were put out than that cow farts making such device, shipping it to destination, installing such contraption, then the emissions put out by the person who maintains it, the rancher who moves it from one cow to another and then the disposal of it.

Especially if any of the people involved had a bean burrito for lunch.

"Inserted into the rumen"

Good thing those cows are already pumped full of antibiotics.

Oh, that isn't done until they are done ruminating.
Uh-oh!

We just derailed a train with fan blades . Lost 2 . BUT they were from 2 different windmills. Now they have to make 6 replacement. 750k each.

Be careful, or we're going to have to send you to sensitivity reeducation camp.
Do you realize what mandatory training there is for employees in California now?

Yeah, the way things are going I'm wondering how long before any talk against the "Progress" will land you in the slammer?

I decided not to cut down some of the trees on my property, so that offsets my continued use of ICE vehicles.



PG&E is trying to discourage consumer PV installations through changes in electric tariffs.
What if we start charging them a carbon tax on forest fires?

Too bad the state did not buy PG&E out of BK for $1 and fire all the cronies.

I bought PG&E in bankruptcy for $4.23 in 2019, similar to what I did in 2001.

If California bought them, would spend $12.4 Billion to build a high-tech transmission line from Bakersfield to Merced because that much could be done without objection from locals in the right-of-way corridor.
