How the European obsession with decarbonization has driven energy and electricity prices through the roof and helped give Vladimir Putin license to do whatever he likes
"climate change is real, and carbon dioxide from fossil fuel admissions is the primary driver."
Eh, not a big fan of unfalsifiable hypothesis, whether they're dealing with vaccine effectiveness (it would have been worse!) or with "climate change".
I figure if climate change is real, they wouldn't have fudge the numbers from the past to make today's numbers look hotter. Or make adjustments to the current temperature data that is the opposite of what's expected. Or use statistical tricks like upside down Tiljander. Or say stuff like "Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it."
The whole covid/vaccine playbook was created from the "climate change" playbook.
You lost me at "climate change is real".
Ya, but so what?
First Ivermectin, and now this? "Let’s all agree; climate change is real, and carbon dioxide from fossil fuel admissions is the primary driver." Come on, Alex. Get your head out of the sand. Do a tiny bit of research about "climate change" and you may be shocked to discover the lies about that are right in line with all the Covid whoppers.
I believe in the Climate Change models and scientists as much as I believed Niel Ferguson's Imperial College London model on the Rona in February of 2020 that was off by orders of magnitude. Sure, the weather changes. Always has. Just run across a news clip from 100 years ago, or read a book - lots of floods, droughts, tornadoes, etc. the Green Energy thing is 100% a con and always has been.
Climate warriors who ignore nuclear power aren't serious.
Putin making power plays. Senile Joe shuffling around with a diaper on both ends.
It’s so bad you almost can’t believe it.
I don’t agree that carbon dioxide emissions are the primary driver of climate change.
First off, by definition the climate is always changing.
Secondly, the only driver strong enough to significantly alter the climate is the SUN.
That is the SIGNAL. All the cries of man made climate change is just NOISE from a bunch of indoctrinated zealots.
“ Let’s all agree; climate change is real, and carbon dioxide from fossil fuel admissions is the primary driver.” Ummm. No. We don’t understand weather, and we don’t understand all of the confounding natural elements that impact climate. When you create a model that’s targeted at discovering the evils of CO2, well, you get answer that exposes that very specific signal. But the weather is a mix of completely chaotic and inputs, one (only one) of which is CO2. To say that this single thing is the heat switch is bananas. Does it contribute to an increase in temps? Maybe - probably. Is it going to kill us, or bake us off the world? There’s zero scientific evidence that supports catastrophe.
Why does anyone pay attention to that mouthy Swedish brat?
Lots of people think nuclear = Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukishima. That was then. This is now: nuclear is much safer than ever, and the hazardous spent fuel can be safely stored.
It's not your father's nuclear. It can work--but I guess we need to wait for Greta to tell us it's OK.
Not that Bezos needs the money, but...
An excellent read.
This is intentional by the WEF. Their goal is to impoverish the world. No one with a brain can actually promote renewables as environmentally friendly - they are ecologically destructive. The Earth was much warmer for most of the reign of the dinosaurs. There was more carbon much more oxygen and a much greener planet. Carbon is not the problem (methane and oceanic micro plastics are with the latter being a huge problem).
If these WEF/ liberal/ Democrat idiots cared about clean, safe energy then newer nuclear plants would be springing up around the world.
If they cared about the environment they wouldn’t be pushing poverty. I once said travel to a poor country and glance in any river or stream or green area and it’s evident why poverty destroys the environment. Now I just say go to LA, look around, gander in the river, you’ll get the point.
A greener Earth with more biodiversity (and food and prosperity) is far better for the environment than the dystopian hell with a blacked out sun and mass suffering the WEF seeks through the likes of Germany, blackfacehitler, and Biden.
If people will stop voting for this and give the innovation that served humans well for thousands of years this would end.
But alas are masses are stupid people who vote for this and seem to enjoy the idea of impending doom as they co-sign our children to slavery to the fascist left.
Good grief, what a disappointing thing to read here.
I won't cancel you Al, but I won't be renewing
Good to see Alex finally reference the WEF. Hopefully he will now investigate their role in the Vaccines, Vaccine Passport, Digital ID agenda as they are every bit as culpable in that as they are in the 'Climate Crisis', 'Green' Energy, De-Carbonization agenda.
Maybe don't let autistic teen girls dictate energy policy? That's my takeaway.
Just want to get some facts straight " Let’s all agree; climate change is real, and carbon dioxide from fossil fuel admissions is the primary driver". Yes, the climate is goona change no debate there. But there is no proven link between human activity and Co2 levels and there is no link between rising CO2 levels (low to begin with) and temperature as is borne out all over. Ye see a few years ago the cunning profs at the University of East Anglia were asked (paid) by the Global Warming Gods to find the link between us evil humans and CO2 levels / climate change and could not (remember the email leaks?) - then like the good gutter press they were the MSM buried it, ye know like adverse affects from the jabs, that kind of thing. The biggest factors are the sun (Galelleo knew that!) and the ocean. We can drive our wee cars all we like but sadly we're not even close to the impact of these two. No Co2 - no life!
"Let’s all agree; climate change is real...."
Umm, no. It is not. I'm pleasantly surprised that many other commenters have already beat me to this observation. Alex, I encourage you to be open-minded enough to consider that there are other narratives that are just as false as the covid one.
I do find everything else in your post to be fascinating food for thought.
Why do we need to manage a transition away from anything?
