Understanding the #FossilFuel industry’s classic narratives is a good starting point.

To #Debunk their false claims, this piece is a great start.

Scientists have warned us that human induced would threaten . That prediction has come true. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2024/04/09/farmers-warn-food-shortages-no-harvest-world-war-two-rain/.
Scientists keep warning it’ll get worse. Most people are still in denial, or simply don’t want to change.

@GottaLaff My problem is not him calling people ‘animals’, which is scientifically true, but him denying they’re humans, which is fascism

@GottaLaff All people are animals, but only some are beasts.
Those beasts seem quite evenly distributed across nationalities, religions and cultures – but not across genders.

Reminder that battery buses have been a nightmare literally everywhere they were used. But especially in colder regions where range really drops off.

It's pretty obvious that all transit agencies will either go back to diesel, or adopt something like hydrogen buses. Physics doesn't change no matter how much someone on Twitter claims otherwise.

@Hypx To date, more than 500,000 electric buses have been introduced to Chinese streets. They’re planning to double this number by 2025-2026 to end the true nightmare of the diesel smoke in cities

@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx If you ignore China, how about Amsterdam. We’ve 200 clean, quiet e-buses around Schiphol airport, made by VDL, in operation since 1999, without any significant issue.
And if you still hate batteries, educate yourself about light rail, trolley buses and dual mode buses

@Hypx As so often, your opinion denies reality.
Electric Bus Market Size hit USD 26.66 billion in 2022 and is supposed to arrive at USD 70.89 billion by 2030

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx What subsidies? What physics?
European cities are buying emission free buses en masse. If the current trend continues, all new buses from 2027 will be emission free. Some cities are banning diesel vehicles from as soon as 2025, many are set to follow towards 2030.
Europe is behind China, in this respect.

@Hypx Apparently, you know things leading thinkers and engineers in the industry don’t, nor policy makers, nor investors, nor companies having years of operating experience.

Wow. According to the hydrogen industry lobbyist in my mentions I've gaslit you all by suggesting that heat pumps are great.

Which is weird. Cos heat pumps are an amazing technology. There's even moves to develop air/air heat pumps they use propane as the refrigerant, so DIY installers can easily install them. But what's truly amazing about heat pumps is how they can scale. In the city of London they've installed a big ground source heat pump to drive district heating. It's awesome.

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek The point being that methanethiol is a much larger molecule than h2, so hydrogen can escape through tiny cracks that block the added scent – especially when pressurized – giving an odorless and potentially explosive gas cloud.

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek What odor molecules have they used? Size does matter

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek Not convinced. Even H2S is so much larger than H2

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek Which you so far failed to share. Show me the formula

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek There’s no formula to be found in that abstract. Nor any discussion about molecular size.
You seem to know more. Why not share?

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek Alright, that’s actually helpful. I made you a little table, so you can see the data for yourself. You’re welcome.
As expected, the odor molecules mentioned are way, way bigger than hydrogen molecules. Also, toxicity is generally worrisome.
This confirms the potential threat of hydrogen escaping while leaving scent marks behind.

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek If you’re interested, methane (CH4) is a sphere with a radius of H-C-H (~2.174Å). H2, however, is more like a stick (better: a capsule). Its length is ~1.2Å, however, its width is closer to 0.53Å. Similarly, Methanethiol, CH3SH, is stick-like. Its width is the same as CH4 (H3C-H vs H3C-SH).
In fact, a crack of <1Å will release only H2, while a crack of >2.2Å will release both H2, CH4 and CH3SH).
If you do the math, it’s a factor of ~4.
Again, you’re welcome.

@Hypx @sewblue @Porcia @quixoticgeek You’re moving from denial to downplaying. I believe you owe me an apology for your bogus claims that I debunked.

Another reminder that demand for BEVs is down. It is not the future of transportation. We need alternatives that are much cheaper. Very few people want cars that are both more expensive and worse than existing cars.

@Hypx BEV sales in South Korea fell by 28% in Q3 2023 from the equivalent period in 2022, the only such decline in all analyzed markets.

Reminder that BEVs do next to nothing to stop emissions. A lot of what we call environmental policy is really just greenwashing.

@Hypx What matters is that people must stop buying cars with toxic tailpipes. Next, whatever replaces the fossil fuels should come from clean sources. That’s all.
Oh, and don’t fall for the misinformation of the fossil fuel lobby

hansbot,
@hansbot@mastodon.green avatar

@Hypx Reminder that ICEs do less than nothing to stop emissions. We can massively deploy clean solar, wind, nuclear, geothermal and petrol cars will still be toxic.
Your first statement is essentially a false dichotomy.
