Meanwhile we produce 40% of our electric power with renewables.

This is a lie.

40% of your installed capacity is renewables.

Only around 25% of your generation comes from renewables.

Over 50% of your generation is from fossil fuels (and most of that is coal, and about 25% of your generation is from fucking lignite, the shittiest, dirtiest thing you could possibly burn).

Why do you bother lying? All the figures are available online.

Germany is the country with the highest reduction of CO2 of the world.


In 2014 German CO2 emissions dropped by 4.3% -- the first drop in three years.

In 2015 German CO2 emissions rose by 1%.

Germany emits nearly twice the CO2 per capita that France emits. France reduced its CO2 emissions in the 1990's. Germany could have reduced its CO2 emissions by closing coal fired electricity generation plants but decided instead to keep emissions more or less constant by replacing low carbon nuclear plants by low carbon renewables.

Almost every post you make is full of unsupported lies.

Come back when your country has build a few nukes successfuly and/or has at least reached a fraction of the CO2 reduction Germany has.

I live in France you moron.

On top of that it mixes production of electricity with total power e.g. as in heating. Obviously you can not simply replace a coal fired heating system in a house with a wind turbine. And more obviously: how exactly do you plan to heat a house with a nuke?

Huh? The easy way is with electric heating, and if you're really into efficiency you can do nuclear CHP.

Very little CO2 is taken out of the atmosphere by photosynthesis -- look at the size of the little sawtooths on the Keeling curve that correspond to the northern hemisphere growth season.

The part of our emissions that don't go into the atmosphere mostly go into the sea.

Anyway, if you want the numbers and the explanations read the papers, for example the one I gave a link to.

An approximately linear relationship between global warming and cumulative CO2 emissions is known to hold up to 2 EgC emissions on decadal to centennial timescales7, 8, 9, 10, 11; however, in some simple climate models the predicted warming at higher cumulative emissions is less than that predicted by such a linear relationship8.

Every other modeler since Jean-Baptiste Joseph Fourier, and especialy Svante Arrhenius uses logarithmic relationship

if the quantity of carbonic acid [CO2] increases in geometric progression, the augmentation of the temperature will increase nearly in arithmetic progression.Svante Arrhenius

These guys are claiming the entire body of Climatological "Settled Science" is wrong and they are just throwing it out there like a bunch of assholes trolling click-bait; at least on Facebook the click-bait trolls give you some side-boob or camel-toed yoga-pants.

You're confusing two different things -- Fourier and Arrhenius (and everyone else) say that there is a logarithmic relationship between the increase in CO2 concentration and the increase in temperature.

This paper (as do many others) claims that there is a (near) linear relationship between emissions and temperature.

That's because doubling the amount we emit will more than double the atmospheric concentration, as the oceans will be taking up a smaller part of what we emit. Look for articles that talk about the TCRE "transient climate response to cumulative carbon emissions", e.g. Le Duc et al 2015
