@kensanata This is not from the article, that's my own take.
With inclusion of the emoji the Consortium took on a mathematically impossible task of, basically, including anything that can be drawn into the standard. Because it's basically an infinite set. Which they dedicate real resources to.
Instead of finding and including as of yet excluded writing and typesetting systems, the argument in the consortium is over if they need to include a crylaugh poo emoji or not. This shifts and basically destroys the purpose of the organization.

Solar Power: Abundant or not?
So, yes, "as much raw incident sunlight falls on the Earth in 1 hour as all of humanity uses in 1 year."
Sounds like a lot. About a 7,000-times surplus.
But when you start doing the maths, it turns out that 1) the amount of usable sunlight is far, far lower (about 100 -- 200x present human energy usage) and 2) baked-in assumptions of human energy consumption growth based just on population growth and a modest levelling-up for the global poor chews up about 1/5 of that surplus.
More depressing truth/reality here:
And no, the message isn't that renewables aren't realistic. It's that our expectations aren't.
