Sitting out doors on an open patio with methane space heaters with flames. Revving up or racing a hot rod, using a chainsaw or a cook stove from various fossil fuels, fire pits, and finally bright gas lanterns. I will hope and perhaps innovate on alternatives. So I’m going to research the specific alternatives to the fossil fuels applications I just listed. Who else is working on this seems important.
I think it may be mainly solar, wind, hydro, gravity and wave energy, so a lot can be electrified. That transition is going to take effort and thought because of the pipeline sharing factor. Some people say that corporations and governments share pipeline infrastructure, which impacts large regions.
I’m simply going to miss the infrared radiations of different flames.
Fossil fuel companies and their pipeline infrastructure operators are quietly fighting for their joint ecosystems, which add another layer of geophysical and geopolitical complexity between countries and corporate fuel supply projects. It is a bit of a mafia relationship that we sort of need to treat as a network. They are expensive to be out bought by consumers and governments, and have as group enjoyed massive subsidies from several government’s taxpayers on top of being profitable at the pump in the trillions.
In Canada, if the economy goes into Recession, I think that government should levy a windfall tax and buy carbon offsets by direct air capture Where oxidation technology and hydroxyl is dispersed, or contactor devices or natural processes that remove a major greenhouse gas, CO2, CH4, SGHGs, SLCPs plus 8 other functions when using hydroxyl dispersal as previously written here:
Because of fossil fuels, my company can have over a million tonnes of ceramic powder every year. Fortunately we also plan to recycle the YSZ mineral very carefully and cleanly-with electrical energy from solar, and smaller wind installations. Energy storage via N2 gas, gravity, or electrochemical may combine and optimize storage. This will also power the heated ceramic cells made with a YSZ pipe that is heated by a tube heater to just over 900’C (medium grade heat). YSZ is an incredible insulator, so once the pipe heats to working temperature, the heater needs are lowered. The installed power for each cell is 900W. The pipe lasts a year, and the heater lasts three years. A Siemens off the shelf PLC for the thermocouple, the heater controller, the elements and the computer system. Full stop, very understandable, affordable/adoptable and maintainable.
The warming-accelerated fires, droughts, and floods from our fossil fuel use must be minimized ASAP.
Snowmobiling, boating. jet skiing, quadding, and combustion processes must be limited. The wealthy 1% need to offset every gram of CO2 and other emissions or pollutions in any of their portfolios. They actually need to address their emissions gap perhaps collectively as corporations of the highest income bracket or for pocketing profits of a certain size. With profits, profit size really matters. Entrepreneurs can project for low or high incomes, optimistic or pessimistic, so the very expensive angel capital looks for startups with huge profit models and checks if they can believe and trust the projections by preprocessing every startup to profit model bootcamp. The pitch decks mainly highlight fast returns as accurately as possible. Angels rarely fund mitigation or remediation work, and as of this writing are barely in the climate finance area, where there are hundreds of innovations. Some of them are really poor projects technically or logistically, but much good is being delayed by the angel networks.
And, climate deniers don’t consider and count the fossil fuel ways and outputs, which makes them slow learners.
The XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition finale will have over a hundred teams that could be in the running for &70M USD. ReductionTech Inc is trying to build 72 working cells by 2025. We are struggling to do this as it will cost $1.9M USD, so if you could buy the advance purchase carbon offsets for our totally thorough and guaranteed global cooling protocol, we would really appreciate this and it starts at a cost of $1.50 CAD over on Shopify: https://miracle-hydroxyl-dispersal-natural-global-ghg-removal.myshopify.com/
We’re also on stripe so that large advance purchases are accommodated. Please pass this article along.
And, thanks for being there and being present in any positive effort you can do.
