Theres no evidence to support your claim that lockdowns produce permanent changes in behavior.

Yes, global oil consumption dropped in 2020 during the pandemic lockdowns, but its already going up again in 2021 and will go up more in 2022 and 2023.

Take China, for example.

China had perhaps the most draconian lockdowns on the planet after the virus escaped the lab in Wuhan, and yet this produced no permanent reduction in their fuel consumption or carbon emissions. China remains on track to consume more and more fossil fuels and emit more and more CO2.

I fully expect Australia, the US, and every other country to also see no permanent effect from the lockdowns.

And I just checked and my view is supported by the EIA oil near term projections, which predict oil consumption will be going up by 5 million bbls/day in 2021 and another 4 million bbls/day in 2022, with the 2022 rate going over 100 million bbls or oil per day and EXCEEDING the 2019 pre-pandemic global oil consumption rate.

Say good-bye to the fantasy that the pandemic will produce permanent reductions in fossil fuel use....it just ain't happening.

Planty knows the virus escaped the lab in Wuhan, just like he knows that EV's cause cancer. :roll:
Given the track record of the perma-doomer blogs, I wouldn't bet a fast crash doomer's money on their predictions.

I know the first person infected with covid.....patient zero....was a tech at the Wuhan lab. I know this person was infected weeks before before the cluster of cases associated with the Wuhan wet market. And I know thats normally how the science of epidemiology is done.....you identify patient zero and use that data point to figure out where the infection originated.

In contrast, Outie doesn't know anything about the origin of the virus or where the virus came from. Its all a big mystery to him/her.

Now you're lying. And you know you're lying....you've done this attack several times before, and each time I refute it, and then you repeat your same lie.

I wonder why all the lying?

Is it because you are too stupid to understand the data I post so you don't know you're lying?

Is it because you can't remember things from day to day and week to week so you repeat the same mistakes over and over again?

Or perhaps you are trying to be nasty?

Personally, I think thats it. I think you're just trying to be nasty.

IF so, then you are failing at being nasty because your post is too stupid to be nasty. Nasty requires a bit of intelligence and just a smidgeon of wit and there must be a glimmer of truth in the nastiness for it to work. The total dishonesty and absence of wit along with the lack of any factual basis totally deflates any nastiness you are attempting, exposing you as just a simple-minded liar.

Nonetheless I'm happy to review the facts again and refute your lie again.. Ahem.....Here we go again.....several years ago I posted, with links to the source reports and data, scientific and engineering studies showing that electric motors produce magnetic fields, and the National Institute of Health has shown that in some cases magnetic fields can produce cancers like Leukemia. Thats why there are restrictions on the time people can be around magnetic fields.....they are a known cancer risk.

Now here's something I bet you don't know....EVs have electric motors and those motors produce magnetic fields.

There is no doubt about this being true....if you don't believe this then hire yourself an engineer who has a magnetometer and make your own measurements in the passenger compartment of an operating EV.

In general the magnetic fields in existing passenger cars sized EVs are somewhat lower then the "danger" level set by the NIH, but the larger EVs coming down the pike now with much larger electric motors, including planned EV tractor-trucks for moving freight, will produce commensurately higher magnetic fields. I'll be curious to see how strong the magnetic field in those new, larger, EVs when they actually go into production.

Electric motors in EVs generate magnetic fields.....and BIGGER electric motors generate BIGGER magnetic fields. Its called S C I E N C E !
