Environmental Sissies Celebrate: Yay! Shipping Giant Maersk Says It Will End Its Use of Fossil Fuels by... Um... 2050

See this limp sap squeeing about it.

Here's the article, but I'm sure you can already predict the future: Maersk collects up Coupons for Free Hugs from enviromental sissies for 30 years, then, in 2048, writes its first press release stating that "Man, this vow to stop fueling our ships with, you know, fuel, we might have gotten a bit ahead of ourselves with that," then in 2049 writes another press release stating "Where the fuck are the fusion reactors? We were told we would have fusion reactors by now. It's those pointy-headed limp-dicked scientists' fault, not ours!"

Then, in 2050, they write: "We intend to be fossil fuel free by the year 2090."

And the sissies start squeeing again.

Anyway, here's part of the article:

Maersk's target, although distant, is one of the most ambitious from a global industrial group promising to end carbon emissions altogether.

Newsflash: It's not ambitious to promise a thousand hamburgers on a Tuesday 32 years off.

The further off the completion date of the promise, the less ambitious it is.

I vow that I personally will use only renewable, clean fuels by 2050 myself.

Caveat: 1, I'll probably be dead, and will be providing fuel rather than using it, and 2, pretty much my promise relies on fusion being perfected.

In other words: I have the same plan as Global Warming Hero Maersk.

...

Maersk is not pushing one technology -- ideas such as biofuels, hydrogen, electricity or even wind or solar power have been mooted -- but is stressing the urgency as most vessels have a life of 20-25 years, meaning that viable solutions need to be found soon.

In other words: We're waiting for someone else to fix this for us.

Which is weird, because that's my plan.

"To reach the target by 2050, in the next 10 years we need some big breakthroughs," Mr Toft said.

Soooo... Fusion then?

We read each other so well, Maersk. It's like fusion-powered kismet.
