Let's all celebrate the fact that we've hit peak oil  :party: :party: :party:
It's all downhill from here (and that's good!)

not sure i believe those projections (but maybe!).

Congrats to Germany.   The solar panels are covered in snow, there's very little wind so the wind turbines are mainly idle and pulling power off the coal/Vlad Putin natural gas powered grid in order to keep from freezing.

It should be, but I'm not sure how you can get rid of it at this point.

Full disclosure:  Crypto ETF stakeholder

Still very hilarious to think that some of our biggest climate change drama queens are huge Crypto people.

One situation I am very familiar with,  the mining operation had to have consumed a massive amount of electricity, 1000's upon 1000's of KW's. 

Burning the planet to the ground for profit and greed . . . sad

What this should remind everyone of is:

1.  Even with more energy efficient devices the proliferation of and cheapening of massive computer processing power coupled with the nearly exponential growth in smart devices across the globe.   So called 'green energy'  has no prayer of meeting demand in the timeframe that's being laid out by people looking to score political points but not solve any real problems.

2.  The proliferation of technology to support all this places insatiable demand on precious metals and materials and all the environmental impact that comes with obtaining those materials

Before I respond, I just want to congratulate the sysbot @sys for actually posting something relevant and meaningful, it happens every 6 months or so.  A nice change from his usual utterly meaningless and rando bullshit.

Lick . . .  no

Also recognize that the biggest virtue signalers relative to the climate are some of the largest individual fossil fuel consumers on the planet, if not the biggest consumers of fossil fuels on the planet relative to individual consumption.

So, by "stakeholder," do you mean a friend or loved one (if possible) holds a security interest, or what?

More terrible news on Bitcoin.

Not only is the process one of the most glutinous users of energy resources on the planet, 20% of it is 'mined' in a coal rich region of China, where terrible human rights abuses are taking place.    The speculation is that cheap coal driven power fuels the operation(s).
