As an example ….

Kinetic speed bumps that generate electricity as vehicles drive over them (effectively prototyped by at least one engineering team in the nineties – the prototype lasted for years) – an example today reportedly requires just 400 vehicles a day for one speed bump to produce around 6GWh a year (as much energy as a full-size wind turbine and easily integrated into urban environments) A few roads in many cities have 400 vehicles a day, a kinetic speed bump or two or more at the entrance of every electric bus terminus, car parks, sporting stadium would generate a bit of electricity.

In rural areas place a few kinetic speed bumps in a warehouse and have an autonomous vehicle drive back and forward over them all day – weather proof, low cost, non polluting, reliable, easy to construct and maintain components, produce instantly on demand, surge capable electricity. Have a few extra kinetic speed bumps to cater for surge demand. Producing electricity is easy.

A few multi-level car parks filled with kinetic speed bumps and autonomous vehicles driving over them can easily produce enough reliable, low cost, non polluting electricity. Piezo is great.

Reduced land size requirements compared to fossil fuel electricity plants, zero greenhouse emissions, significantly more reliable and lower cost than coal – switching off coal use is effortless.

The positive effects unlimited, free (low cost), non polluting electricity gives to society and economies is enormous (reduces costs, increased productivity, no shortages, Oppenheimer phrased it well)

The solar industry (and other green technologies) provide significantly more employment than either the toxic coal or nuclear industry – switching off coal use is effortless.

Only twenty (countries) on the planet (the G20) produce more than 80% of all greenhouse emissions worldwide and more than 40% of total global greenhouse emissions are from coal use – reducing greenhouse emissions is low cost compared to GDP for G20 bureaucrats and can be easily funded, as an example RBA estimates ceasing coal mining/use will be a temporary loss of only 0.1% of Australia’s GDP without factoring in the real positive growth for agriculture, tourism etc (Australia is the world’s largest exporter of coal, a coal mine employs a few hundred people in horrible and life threatening working conditions – sectors negatively impacted by coal use such as agriculture, tourism etc employ significantly more)

Real science for decades is that coal mining/use must be urgently switched off. Digging up coal and burning it is the most inefficient and costly way to produce electricity and perhaps why only blatantly corrupt bureaucrats continue to endorse use of coal.

Let’s hope some of the current G20 bureaucrats intent is not to keep pumping coal and buy everyone an air conditioner. As an example, with todays technology can use kinetic speed bumps to rapidly build for less than a few million an on demand weather proof power station that reliably produces more low cost electricity than a nuclear power plant – more than enough space in the coal truck parking lot at most coal electricity plants and the kinetic system would produce more on demand low cost electricity than the coal plant.

It’s not complicated. Nor does it require trillions of dollars.

Switching off coal powered electricity is low cost, effortless, provides great positive economic and societal gains and around 40% of global green house emissions are instantly removed, it’s a no brainer and many countries are doing so.

With the stroke of a pen the World Bank could double the interest rates for countries still using coal or reduce rates for countries not using coal – that would encourage rapid reductions.

Or a bonus offset of foreign debt to developing nations that action reduction in emissions or to ensure protection of wilderness areas would help incentivise and ease burdens ($1 billion offset every few years to ensure no more burning of the Amazon or deforestation in Sumatra is a win-win for everyone and something every country should invest in)

[23 October 2021 – a statistic reported in oz today, around 75% of voters in Australia including coal mining electorates support reducing coal mining and use of coal, and a majority want coal subsidies instead used for renewable energy]

[10 November 2021 – on a positive note freemason Kerry announced today that the USA would be coal free by 2030 – looking forward to that being put into legislation. Significantly better than any commitment any current unfortunately corrupt federal oz bureaucrat has made – the private sector, many state and local politicians are happily taking great positive action in oz and their electorates love them for it]

Switching off coal electricity and providing retraining for the few hundred employees effected is low cost and effortless, removing around 40% of global greenhouse emissions with great positive socio-economic effects.

11 November 2021 – Austria we love you all for shutting off Austria’s last coal power plant this week! Same for Portugal ahead of schedule with many others doing the same. Huge cheers!

Clear skies and crystal clear sparkling water assured.

Happily many developing countries including China and Brazil are rapidly reducing their use of coal powered electricity.

It is nonsensical and incorrect to suggest that “Fossil fuels and their use have enabled parts of the world to attain high levels of wealth and wellbeing.” Coal was the only way to produce electricity more than a century ago and unfortunately coal use has been extraordinarily costly, causing millions of early deaths due to pollution (incl the dangers of working in the coal industry) and catastrophic ecological damage. (leading economists currently estimate the yearly cost of pollution (including extreme weather events) to be more than half a trillion dollars each year for US, globally trillions of dollars each year)

Thankfully developing nations can now easily skip the destructive, costly and burdensome coal electricity phase and enjoy the boost provided to their economies and society by lower cost to install, lower cost to consumers, non polluting and more reliable green methods of producing electricity.

Suggesting developing nations must remain trapped in a deadly smoggy haze is incorrect.

Critters seem quite adamant about this.
