Our government has been ramming green energy alternatives down our throats since 2008, insisting that the sources of energy that have created the most productive period in the history of mankind will eventually lead to it's demise. Many scientists who have been unheard of until now are beginning to nag at the bit and denounce these theories because the true science, the "climate data," is not backing up the rhetoric... the rhetoric which is adding tremendously to ailing economies world wide and for no rational reason other than a consolidation of power and wealth by a chosen few.
"Candidates should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true. In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are needed." That from an article published in The Wall Street Journal.
Prices for everything are up. Every week, the price of gas increases and, in turn, so do the products we consume as they are all picked, produced and/or brought to us through the use of fossil fuels. Environmental regulations, subsidies for "green" energy initiatives and a growing call to limit use of carbon emmiting energies and their emissions are hitting us in the wallet each and every day.
According to climate scientist Kevin Trenberth, "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." The data is just not adding up... data showing that we may actually be in a cooling cycle; climate models that man-made global warming scientists have been producing--not verifying that climate change is actually occurring, much less that it is caused by man and the burning of fossil fuels.
According to the article, if one is wondering why there is so much passion about global warming, we have to do little more than follow the money. Hysteria over global warming benefits, many from academics and grants received to publish papers, to big governments looking for reasons to grow bigger and increase taxes for taxpayer-funded subsidies required to make "green energy" affordable today.
Green energy is not affordable/competitive/viable today. European nations, which have been subsidizing solar and wind for years are finding that it was an unwise investment that doesn't work and are suspending all funding/subsidies and commissions from Spain to Germany to France. If the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow, what happens? You have to fire up traditional power plants to deliver the goods. That's right, you build a solar or wind farm--there has to be a traditional power plant there to fill the void should the green solution stop producing... you have to double up on the investment--just in case. That hasn't worked anywhere in the world. Perhaps one day it will. That time has certainly not arrived.
Not only that, we are about to hear of a report featuring data from more than 30,000 weather stations around the world whose weather observations show that there has been no warming of the planet in the past 15 years. According to The Daily Mail, the UK MET office will announce the rising trend in global temps ended in 1997!
Just remember the next time you fill up the tank or pay a little more for that hamburger--it's all related. Are we being gouged by the greatest and most expensive hoax the world has ever seen? Our government continues to ask us to fill the trough--so that they can waste our money, like only they know how to do.
