Here is how #renewables make things worse

Assume today all fossil-fuel use ended. The following heat and emission generators still exist.

Direct
  • human activity - moving, building, fixing, fighting, maintaining body temperature
Indirect
  • drying peat
  • melting permafrost
  • melting clathrates (ocean methane)
  • soil emissions from agriculture
  • forest destruction reducing co2 capture
  • wildfires
  • reduced ice melt latency
  • reduced ice solar reflection
  • tectonic activity from ice melt
  • tectonic activity from geothermal energy use
  • etc
All of these are doubling every 30 18 years.

Renewables do abolutely nothing to slow growth. Even without fossil-fuel we will cook the bioshere. Only degrowth reduces both heat and emissions.
