The misguided and reckless use of literally trillions of dollars of other people’s (taxpayers) money to fight ‘global warming’ that is now called ‘climate change’ to cover hot or cold is the real travesty of this age of collective environmental madness.

Energy blog Master Resource analyses the future of world energy generation. Several scenarios are considered, but the bottom line is that the the idea of renewables as a primary energy source can never be made to work.
Wind, Solar Mirage
Regarding the power market, wind and solar will actually play a minor, even inconsequential, role in reducing emissions by 2035. Worse still for those that believe human-caused CO2 emission are responsible for disastrous climate change, other reasonable options now available will not have a timely effect.
Adaptation, and using wealth diverted from inappropriate energy policy, is a key public-policy takeaway from this series.

We live in a ‘1984’ world where “saving the planet” means far more than the effect one molecule has amongst the other ten thousand.
Atmospheric CO2 has risen by 100 parts per million (one part per ten thousand) over the past century. That is equivalent to packing one extra person into this Bernie “everything will be free” Sanders rally.
Experts claim that this one molecule has heated the other 10,000 molecules up by more than one degree centigrade.
In order for one molecule to heat up 10,000 other molecules by 1°C, the effective temperature of that one molecule would have to be 10,000°C – about twice the temperature of the surface of the Sun.
Only a complete moron would believe something so ludicrous, which is why they say 97% of scientists agree on this utter nonsense.
“In 1999, NASA’s James Hansen wrote that the US was cooling, even as greenhouse gases rapidly increased.”
Hansen was spot on, until the ‘global warming’ agenda deemed cooling ‘inconvenient’…

Whither U.S. Climate?
By James Hansen
Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought
in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country (Figure 2).
The US has (by far) the most credible temperature record in the world, so this cooling was devastating to their global warming theory. NASA responded to this challenge as they always do, by tampering with the data and making the cooling disappear.
