Carbon Bubble

Jump to: navigation, search


  • A hypothesized Economic Bubble caused by the true costs of Greenhouse Gas Emmisions in intensifying global warming are not yet taken into account thus leaving out a (frequently massive) cost, making companies seem far more profitable/valuble than they are
  • The moment a Carbon Tax is implemented, or a scenario wherein people no longer allow/accept fossil fuel production and/or use, or the unlikely wherin fossil fuels run out from a supply standpoint (see Hubbert Peak Theory ) This bubble will burst
  • Thus the arguement of "Will Biofuels be Able to Compete with Fossil Fuels " and similar arguements with Renewable Energy Production are essentially invalid
    • Therefore when people bring these up as counter-arguements to developing these technologies, BRING THIS UP
