We examine an interesting set of recent proposals describing a ‘wormhole paradigm’ for black holes. These proposals require that in some effective variables, semiclassical low-energy dynamics emerges at the horizon. We prove the ‘effective small corrections theorem’ to show that such an effective horizon behavior is not compatible with the requirement that the black hole radiate like a piece of coal as seen from outside. This theorem thus concretizes the fact that the proposals within the…

A renormalizable theory of quantum gravity coupled to a dilaton and conformal matter in two spacetime dimensions is analyzed and suggests that the collapsing matter radiates away all of its energy before an event horizon has a chance to form, and black holes disappear from the quantum-mechanical spectrum.
