Which part of “economic” does the World Economic Forum not understand?

Guest “Rhetorical question” by David Middleton

If you can’t see why this is hilarious, you probably flunked economics (and basic arithmetic)…

Wind and solar now employ as many workers as the oil sector.

World Economic Forum on LinkedIn

The LinkedIn post is accompanied by a cute YouTube video:

The World Economic Forum, apparently thinks that this is something to brag about. If you can’t see why this is hilarious, you probably flunked economics (and basic arithmetic)…

Global primary energy consumption in 2021 (BP Statistical Review of World Energy)

By the logic of the World Economic Forum, it is a “good thing” that it takes more people to produce and deliver 7% of the world’s primary energy needs, than it takes to produce and deliver 55% (oil & gas).

It’s actually possible that, in 2021, it took twice as many people to deliver than 40 EJ of “green” energy than it took to deliver 330 EJ of “oil sector” energy.

Renewable energy jobs hit 12.7 million globally
New report confirms growth in renewable jobs despite multiple crises and calls for targeted industrial strategies to create stable supply chains and decent jobs.

Press release | 22 September 2022

GENEVA (ILO News) – Worldwide employment in renewable energy reached 12.7 million last year, a jump of 700,000 new jobs in one year, despite the lingering effects of COVID-19 and the growing energy crisis, according to a new report.

Renewable Energy and Jobs: Annual Review 2022  identifies domestic market size as a major factor influencing employment generation in renewables, along with labour and other costs. Solar energy was found to be the fastest-growing sector. In 2021 it provided 4.3 million jobs, more than a third of the current global workforce in renewable energy.

International Labour Organization

Oil and gas production

The ILO estimates that nearly 6 million people are directly employed by the petroleum industry and over ten times that number of jobs are indirectly created by the industry. Employment opportunities for women in the petroleum industry are increasing, but from a very low base. This may be because of harsh working conditions in the industry: long hours work, especially in oil production; increasing amounts of work round the clock, in difficult, remote areas ; scheduling of shifts particularly offshore when rotation patterns are constrained by transport schedules and limits on accommodation. The petroleum industry faces the shortage of skilled workers.

International Labour Organization
“Now that’s funny right there I don’t care who you are. That there is funny.”

Renewables require 300,000 more employees per exajoule of output than the oil & gas industry does. Whenever I see these “triumphant” articles about renewable energy employing more people than fossil fuels, I’m always reminded of the photos of dozens of workers sweeping snow off the streets of Beijing during President Nixon’s historic visit to Red China in 1972.

Humans had to move beyond hunter-gather before societies could support developing technology for other purposes. Once mechanized farming is destroyed, there will have to be some hard choices between activities that produce and supply power and those that produce and supply food. There may well not be enough people left to do both.

Current wind and solar technology, universally applied, condemns the entire human race to trying to extract energy from the wind and sun. The task will gobble up the entire human output in fruitless employment.

The developed countries are able to sustain the illusion by total reliance on China for all of the elements to even start the journey to NutZero. And it only works while China is able to resource the insanity with it currently abundant coal resources with a little help of a few other resource suppliers.

Classic misinformation / misdirection

So ~7.8 million Solar/Wind workers produce 7% of our energy.

And 7.8 million fossil fuel workers produce 82% of our energy.

In other words it takes nearly 12 solar/wind workers to produce
what just one fossil fuel worker produces.

Just think what those extra 11 workers could produce if they
weren’t working solar panels and wind farms? Why they could
be put to work digging holes and filling them up again.

There are jobs and then there are good jobs. The jobs I had at nuke plants were good jobs. In northern climates I heated with wood because I enjoyed it. I figured than the ratio of homes I could heat as part of the team at the nuke plant to cutting and delivering firewood was a 1000 to 1.

I would also suspect that the majority of renewable job is gathering wood or cow pies.

It is like this. After being married many year I was surprised when my wife commented that she did not know I liked doing home improvement projects. I replied that where we use to live I had a sail boat. I would rather be sailing.

I liked working in the nuclear industry and thought I would work until I dropped. Then my wife was hospitalized in Hong Kong. Then I decided I would rather be traveling with my wife full time.

This number for solar excludes any storage or system overbuild. Once those numbers are accounted for, solar panels would need to last 160 years to return their energy.

The term “renewable” is false advertising. There will only be one shot at NutZero and it will be a blank.

EU are already questioning their policy on wind and solar and they have less than 4% of their primary energy coming from wind and solar despite spending hundreds of billions on that stuff.

Not defending the green movement by any stretch, but I don’t believe that you’re comparing apples to apples.

The article does not say if the people were employed in delivery of the energy or in the construction phase of building wind and solar sites.

As the number of sites approaches the perceived required number, construction jobs will taper off.

Albeit, by the time they get close to that elusive number, the early sites will need to be replaced.

If they are claiming it is cheaper over the lifecycle, there is only one way to accomplish it; massive layoffs once everything is in place.

Since they are paid by taxpayers (subsidies, feed in tariffs, payment when renewables are ‘off sick’, payment to not produce), this represents a 12million addition to the civil service. Moreover, fossil fuels are the sources of huge tax income for all levels of government which is a ‘subsidy’ to the individual taxpayer (reduces taxes otherwise paid by the individual). Renewables don’t pay taxes in the aggregate.

The real question of what ‘all-in’ renewables cost should be worked out using all these factors.

Today wind is supplying the UK with 14% of its electricity. For about a day last week it was around 40%, but less than 20% is more normal. CCGT is, alone, around 53%.

To reach 40% today would presumably require three times the wind turbines we currently have. That might mean approaching 100% electricity for one windy day occasionally, but for the rest of the time we would have less that half the electricity the country needs.

To reach 100% today would mean more than 7 times the number of wind turbines we currently have.

According to the BBC “There are now more than 11,000 wind turbines on and offshore” https://www.bbc.com/news/explainers-60945298 so we will presumably need more than 77,000 wind turbines to power the UK on a fairly normal day.

The land/sea area required for that is mind boggling.

Matt Ridley illustrated this nicely in a 2017 article but he appears to be using nameplate values: “If wind turbines were to supply all of that growth but no more, how many would need to be built each year? The answer is nearly 350,000, since a two-megawatt turbine can produce about 0.005 terawatt-hours per annum.” which, I think I have illustrated, is not representative of the actual performance (my understanding of this isn’t as it might be so I stand to be corrected) in which case we can multiply his numbers by seven, as if it’s not bad enough as it is.

https://www.rationaloptimist.com/blog/wind-still-making-zero-energy/

It has taken the UK some 20 years to reach the numbers we have. Being that China can only produce so many turbines a year and we are not the only country demanding them, does that mean we will have to wait another 120 years before the country is fully provisioned with wind turbines? None of this, of course, allows for replacement of turbines at the end of their 20 year life.

And as Matt points out, this is only electricity which is a fraction of a country’s energy requirements.

Corrections to my assumptions/calculations gratefully received.

The Mountain Valley Pipeline remains in obstructionist legal limbo after Manchin falls for bait and switch scheme and then gets stabbed in the back:

https://apnews.com/article/russia-ukraine-health-covid-government-congress-3562f84c020707d0f0764c3b7d62bb41

Manchin ends pipeline push, easing path for spending bill

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin has abandoned, for now, his push to speed up the permitting process for energy projects, easing the Senate’s path toward passing a stopgap spending bill that would keep the federal government running when the fiscal year ends at midnight Friday.

A procedural vote Tuesday advancing the funding bill succeeded easily, 72-23, after Democrats announced that the West Virginia senator’s proposal would be stripped from the final legislation…

…“I am disappointed that unrelated permitting reform was attached to this bill. This is a controversial matter that should be debated on its own merits,” said Sen. Patrick Leahy, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “However, with four days left in the fiscal year, we cannot risk a government shutdown; we must work to advance this bill.”

Language in Manchin’s proposal was tied to the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which would run through West Virginia and Virginia for more than 300 miles. The bill would have effectively approved the pipeline and steered legal challenges to a different federal court.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., was poised to vote against taking up the funding package if it included the pipeline language, another sign that lawmakers didn’t have the 60 votes needed to proceed.

“We should pass a continuing resolution that is free of the unprecedented and dangerous” pipeline deal, Kaine said.

Environmental groups celebrated the hard-earned victory.

“Good riddance to Manchin’s dirty backroom deal and the bottom-of-the-barrel politics that it represented,” said Jean Su, energy justice director at the Center for Biological Diversity…
