«AI is an energy hog. This is what it means for climate change.
How worried should we be about AI’s effects on the grid?»

#Senate #Democrats opened an investigation on Thurs into #Trump’s meeting w/ #oil & #gas execs last month to determine whether Trump offered a “policies-for-money transaction” [#bribe ] when he asked for $1B for his 2024 campaign so he could retake the White House & delete #POTUS #Biden’s #climate #regulations.

The investigation is the 2nd congressional inquiry into the April 11 fund-raising dinner…. Trump told ~20 oil & gas execs that they would save far more than $1B in avoided #taxes & #legal fees after he repealed #environmental regulations….

#Trump has vowed to “drill, baby, drill” if he wins…. He has made no secret of his plans to end #Biden’s policies that support #wind & #solar #energy as well as #ElectricVehicles.

Special mud helps XGS Energy get more power out of geothermal wells

Young geothermal energy wells can be like budding prodigies, each brimming with potential to outshine their peers. But like people, most decline with age. In California, for example, the amount of electricity generated by geothermal power plants declined by 15% between 2001 and 2018, partly because existing wells degraded.

The findings from Oil Change International wouldn't come as a surprise to many.

They reveal a stark disconnect between the climate plans of the 8 largest US and European-based international oil & gas producers, and the global goal of limiting warming to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels.

The strategies of US firms Chevron, ConocoPhillips, and ExxonMobil were found to be ‘grossly insufficient’ across all evaluated criteria.

"The reports of electric vehicle sales’ death are greatly exaggerated."

Predicted EV sales:

China, biggest auto market to hit 10 million vehicles, roughly 45% of all car sales

US: 2nd largest auto market, forecast to rise 20%, 11% of all new car sales.

Europe: 3rd largest auto market, to hit 10%, 25% of total sales.

I know everybody hates the oil companies, and for good reason.

But their drilling knowhow could be the dark horse in the race for decarbonisation.

The potential for advanced geothermal energy with supercritical water techniques hold the key for unlocking vast amounts of carbon-free energy that is as stable as fossil fuels.

We are sitting on a ball of hot magma heated by nuclear radiation and movement of the moon.

"power plants do annual maintenance in April. That takes thousands of megawatts offline, making it harder for the grid to handle a burst of heat..."

It wasn't particularly hot in Texas in April, but the electricity grid was strained.. "Thanks to crypto mining, data centers, electric vehicles, manufacturing, and more people moving to the state," plus global warming.

"If it’s bad now, what the heck will summer be like?"
