Sri Lanka crisis 2022 example of oil exit failures

Hit hard by the breakdown in tourism caused by COVID-19, the higher price of oil comes as the next blow. The serious failures of the industrialized countries.

August 1997, an article about the possibilities of lithium manganese batteries appeared in “Bild der Wissenschaft”. Today we know that this article was completely correct. However, the German car industry relied on “emissions cheating is cheaper than innovation”.

We take Sri Lanka as a prime example of the worldwide consequences of having delayed the change to renewable energy and electric mobility for 10 to 15 years.

-250% CO2 emission until 350 ppm are reached again -250% CO2 emission until 350 ppm are reached again
Less CO2 emission is much too little, even zero emission is insufficient. Only a planet renovation with large-scale CO2 filtering and splitting from the atmosphere will help.


Climate change: Please do not panic Climate change: Please do not panic
With “irreversible” and “last chance, then it's too late” the impression of a hopeless situation is created, which leads to senseless panic reactions or apathy.


Filtering and splitting CO2 from the atmosphere Filtering and splitting CO2 from the atmosphere
Due to their enormous space and water requirements, plants are unsuitable for the necessary reduction of the CO2 content in the atmosphere. There is no room for 37 million km² of growing forest.


390 PWh/year electricity for CO2 from the atmosphere 390 PWh/year electricity for CO2 from the atmosphere
Reduce the CO2 content with Power to Carbon, generate fuels with Power to Liquid and use CO2 for indoor plant cultivation to replace large-scale agriculture.


Carbon fiber becomes standard material for construction Carbon fiber becomes standard material for construction
If we filter the 33.1 Gt CO2 emission of 2019 from the atmosphere and split it into C and O, we get 9 billion tons of carbon. What to do with it?


IPCC Report 2021: “Net Zero Emissions” Fairy Tale and its Devastating Consequences IPCC Report 2021: “Net Zero Emissions” Fairy Tale and its Devastating Consequences
Constantly contradicting itself, the IPCC 2021 report adheres to the completely inadequate “net zero emissions” target. This can only be explained by thinking prohibitions.


Green dogmatism and the destruction of the German photovoltaic industry Green dogmatism and the destruction of the German photovoltaic industry
How the dogma “the demand for electricity will decrease” led to extremely wrong targets, which led to the destruction of the German photovoltaic industry in 2013.




  2022 Reports on climate change and necessary measures


Ideologies and dogmas are a danger for the future of mankind. From the technical possibilities, worldwide wealth and a return to 350 ppm CO2 is possible.

How the dogma “the demand for electricity will decrease” led to extremely wrong targets, which led to the destruction of the German photovoltaic industry in 2013.


Why Germany is failing in the energy transition Why Germany is failing in the energy transition
In the first decade of the new millennium, Germany was the great role model in the energy transition, why, on the other hand, the current EEG policy leads to disaster.


Destructive cult prevents functional energy transition Destructive cult prevents functional energy transition
A horror novel about a world without renewable energy and recycling delayed a workable energy transition and thus effective climate protection by decades.
