John Kerry: ‘People are going to die because of the decision Trump made’ | US news | The Guardian
TRUMP Derangement Syndrome landed with a thud in the weekend Guardian featuring John Kerry and a healthy dose of obligatory Trump hate surrounding his smart move to pull out of the UN Paris Accord.
“You know what I’m angry about? People are going to die because of the decision Donald Trump made. My kids and my grandkids are going to face a difficult world because of what Donald Trump has done. But if you sound angry all the time, people aren’t going to listen to you.” – John Kerry
John Kerry: ‘People are going to die because of the decision Trump made’ | US news | The Guardian
KERRY’s ‘angry’ comments exemplify all that is lazy and deceitful with those prosecuting the flimsy case for catastrophic man-made
global warming climate change. Hyper-alarmist opinions based on emotions, and in Kerry’s case – hate, rather than hard facts and evidence.
BUT, no one really expects the Guardian or Kerry to observe actual data, especially when it’s a high-fashion hit-piece on Trump and especially when their favourite pet theory, Climate Change is in play.
SO, once again it becomes the job of those outside of the Leftist mainstream media echo chamber to correct the record…
US CO2 Emissions Falling Under Trump, While The World Increases
ACCORDING to the latest energy report from The Energy Information Administration (EIA), under President Trump, per-capita carbon dioxide emissions are now the lowest they’ve been in nearly seven decades.”
U.S. carbon dioxide emissions have steadily declined since 2008, when the fracking revolution dramatically and lowered natural gas prices. Low-priced natural gas can often outcompete coal on an economic front, while also cutting carbon dioxide emissions in half:
THE U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950. After rising for decades, it’s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years:
THE graph that climate alarmists and unreliable-energy rent seekers don’t want you to see:
IN absolute terms coal use has fallen far more in America this century than anywhere else:
COAL use by country
MOST of the growth in CO2 emissions this century came from modernising economies. China and India dominated:
CO2 growth by country
PARIS ACCORD – ‘BAD DEAL’
WHY would Trump have ever signed up to the latest UN wealth redistribution scheme when Europe, the epicentre of draconian climate change policy and green energy madness, cannot meet its own emissions ‘commitments’ despite spending hundreds of billions of taxpayer €Euros on failed ‘green’ energy?
EUROPE’S GREEN ENERGY FAILURE: CO2 EMISSIONS RISING

GLOBAL CO2 EMISSIONS
GLOBAL CO2 emissions continue their steady climb, despite the trillions of dollars committed to green energy sources worldwide and efforts to curb CO2 emissions.
Source: International Energy Agency (IEA).
BUT, AREN’T WIND AND SOLAR ‘POWER’ MEANT TO LOWER CO2 EMISSIONS?
URELIABLE-energy propagandists claim that wind, solar and other weather-dependent ‘energy’ sources will “Save The Planet” by lowering plant-food (CO2) emissions. But, the opposite is occurring…
WHY ARE CO2 EMISSIONS RISING WHEREVER ‘GREEN’ ENERGY IS PROLIFERATED?
ONE inconvenient reason for the rise in emissions, that you won’t hear reported on MSM news, ever :
WHAT’S happening in Germany is, unfortunately, a bellwether for what is to come in other large wealthy countries attempting to make renewables the kingpin of their power grids.
THE unspoken truth about renewables was succinctly summarized in a 2012 Los Angeles Times analysis :
“As more solar and wind generators come online, … the demand will rise for more backup power from fossil fuel plants.”
FULL article, entitled “Rise in renewable energy will require more use of fossil fuels” also points out that wind turbines often produce a tiny fraction (1 percent?) of their claimed potential, meaning the gap must be filled by fossil fuels:
⇑ Wind Power Installation Amplifies
The Growth Of Fossil Fuel Energies
“[A]s RES [renewable energy sources] increases, the expected decreasing tendency in the installed capacity of electricity generation from fossil fuels has not been found.” – Marques et al., 2018
Wind Power Installation Amplifies The Growth Of Fossil Fuel Energies – Marques et al., 2018
SEE : New Papers: Intermittent Wind Power PRESERVES & INCREASES Need For Fossil Fuel Energy Generation
RATHER than blaming Trump for “blowing up the Paris deal” ergo, “causing people to die”, why doesn’t the rest of the world follow his lead and let technology and innovation reduce ’emissions’, rather than relying on green central planning, endless climate conferences, grandstanding global climate treaties, economy and job destroying carbon dioxide reduction schemes and never to forget costly, failed unreliables – wind and solar?
FAT chance that ever happening or admitting Trump was right, again.
BETTER to kick the climate can down the road and see how much more climate coin it spits out.

DISASTER divided : Two countries, one island, life-and-death differences
WITHOUT access to fossil fuels, every tree on the planet would have been cut down by now to provide for heating, cooking and industry.
THE greatest threat to the environment is not affluence, it is poverty.
BORDER between Haiti and Dominican Republic, a pristine example…
• ONE country embraces Fossil Fuels 🇩🇴
• THE other, signed up to the UN Paris Accord 🇭🇹
BORDER between Haiti and the Dominican Republic: Guess which country contains eco-criminals that can afford to use fossil fuels, and which country contains nature-lovers who are dependent on natural renewable organic biomass for energy?
HAITI is almost 99% deforested, as they rely almost entirely on natural ‘biomass’ (wood) for domestic and industrial fuels and building materials.
ON the other side, the forests of the fossil fuel burning, eco-terrorists – the Dominican Republic – remain lush and green :
NASA Satellite : Haiti – Dominican Republic Border (CNN)
EMBRACE the UN’s draconian climate regulations by pursuing the mad rush into unreliables – wind and solar – and join Haiti in the race to energy poverty and environmental devastation.
FUEL-poverty stricken German’s are already robbing forests for wood to heat their homes in winter, unable to pay for radically priced ‘green’ energy :
ADDING MORE SOLAR AND WIND ‘POWER’ INCREASES CO2 EMISSIONS…
GERMAN forest thievery began in 2013 when Energiewende was in its infancy.
THE Energiewende (German for energy transition) is “the planned transition by Germany to a low carbon, environmentally sound, reliable, and affordable energy supply” (wiki).
AFTER hundreds of €BILLIONS of taxpayer’s hard-earned money spent on sunshine and breezes, Germany’s Energiewende program has been exposed as a catastrophic failure, with carbon dioxide emissions higher now than in 2009, the year before massively subsidised ‘green’ energy was signed into German law!
GERMAN emissions last year were actually higher than in 2009, and have been on the rise again since 2014.
NUCLEAR power is still supplying 12% of Germany’s power. When this is finally phased out in a few years time, the country will be more reliant on fossil fuels than ever :
GERMANY’S RECORD COAL BOOM
THE ‘green’ dream is on ice as a ‘coal frenzy’ grips Europe and unreliables lose their attraction:
With Greenpeace successfully forcing the shutdown of nuclear power, and keeping out fracking for gas, what’s left? A boom in coal. In fact, over the next two years Germany will build 10 new power plants for hard coal. Europe is in a coal frenzy, building power plants and opening up new mines, practically every month. It might sound odd that a boom in German coal is the result of Greenpeace’s political success. –Ezra Levant, Toronto Sun, 7 January 2014
RISING German Emissions – the numbers :
WHEN will the ideological push for symbolic, costly, unreliable, unwanted, economically and environmentally destructive ‘green energy’ end?
ALL that pain, for ZERO gain!
AUSTRALIA take note. Do not let recent history repeat.

AUSTRALIAN high-energy, thermal coal export earnings and volumes are running at record rates on the back of strong Asian power station demand. While it is early days, the July 2018 revenue figure is 31 per cent up on July 2017.
Strong Asian demand boosts coal exports
EXPORT volumes rose 10 per cent to a record 19.87 million tonnes, representing an annual rate of 238 million tonnes.
FEDERAL Resources Minister Matt Canavan said the figures backed up previous expectations that Australia’s high-energy coal would be in demand from Asia’s growing coal-fired power sector as it chased better air quality and lower emissions.
THE strong thermal coal exports come as combined exports of east coast thermal coal, used to generate electricity, and coking coal, used to make steel, overtake West Australian exports of iron ore as the nation’s top export.
ACCORDING to the ABS data, July’s combined coal exports beat iron ore for the third straight month, coming in at $5.58bn, compared to iron ore’s $4.74bn.
CHINESE coal-fired power generation was up 7.3 per cent in the first seven months of this year, from a year earlier.
AND Australia’s higher-quality coal, in terms of energy content, is being favoured over domestic mines and import competitors such as Indonesia as China tries to combat air pollution.
THE strength in coal prices has favoured those prepared to invest against a growing campaign and activism against thermal coal.
Strong Asian demand boosts coal exports | The Australian (paywalled)
MEANWHILE, in Australia, global warming theory-obsessed politicians of both major parties and persuasions are giving up the countries once prized economic advantage of having cheap, reliable energy, by decommissioning and blowing up their last remaining coal-fired power plants. The Greens and Labor parties even cheering the economic vandalism…

NEIGHBOURING State, Victoria, whose Socialist, Hard Left government, with an obvious obsession with ‘green’ energy and the climate faith has closed Hazelwood coal-fired power station, which did not merely supply Victoria with a quarter of its power but also helped bail out South Australia who are now largely dependent on sunshine and breezes for their energy security.
ALL this destruction of Australia’s once cheap, efficient, relaible, baseload power supply has led to Australia now having some of the highest power prices in the world. South Australia officially “the highest“…
THE world has got the message: South Australia is closed for investment in heavy industry, and so, soon, will be the rest of Australia if they don’t learn from the dire consequences of destroying cheap power.
AUSTRALIA’S politicians, intent on appeasing the UN climate gods, over its own citizens, continue the mad and ruinous rush into unreliable-energy – wind and solar – assuring rampant energy poverty by denying its own citizens the use of the miracle black rock that provides cheap, reliable and increasingly ultra-clean energy via new generation Supercritical and HELE (High Energy Low Emissions) coal-fired power plants currently being built in Asia and across the globe…
CLEAN coal-fired power plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries…
From The New York Times
“1,600 new coal-fired power plants are planned or under construction in 62 countries.”

AUSTRALIA’S (suicidal) Unreliable-Energy and UN emissions reductions goals by State :
DON’T expect to hear or read about the massive expansion of global coal-fired power stations or Australia’s record coal exports via the majority Leftist press.
THE Pravda mainstream media wants you to think that wind and solar are booming. The opposite is, of course, the truth.

4. Renewable Energy Becomes More Costly The More It Is Deployed … Renewable Energy Expansion Ensures More Fossil Fuel Installation Is Necessary As Backup
IN other words, the more windmills or solar panels, the more *emissions!
(*If harmless CO2 emissions have been brainwashed into you as being the enemy within, that is.)
STOP THESE THINGS
It takes a special brand of delusion to believe that the world can run on sunshine and breezes. For wind and sun worshippers, disastrous examples like South Australia – where mass blackouts and load shedding have become the new normal – require not just practiced delusion but a form of self-flagellating stoicism, as well. Oh, almost forgot to mention, that RE superpower suffers the world’s highest power prices. And it reached that infamous status after it blew up its last coal-fired power plant.
The wind industry has had more than 30 years to get its act together. It was built on subsidies and wouldn’t last a minute without them. But, still, there are plenty happy to roll out the excuses and plead for more of the same.
When STT kicked off in December 2012, it was hard to find anyone with a harsh word to say about wind power. However…

THERE is no doubt that signing The Paris Climate Accord, carpeting pristine landscapes with Industrial Wind Turbines and Solar panels, energy poverty c/o skyrocketing NEG/RET power prices, ending capitalism and sending jobs and industries offshore to China (with Australia’s coal and uranium packed in the carry-on) would have prevented the 1500-year-long ‘Mega Drought’ that killed off original Australians…
Study suggests 1500-year-long ‘mega drought’ killed off original Australians
AUSTRALIA’S original inhabitants may have died-off during a 1500-year-long ‘mega drough’, new research suggests.
JANUARY 3, 201311:07AM
Researchers investigating rapid climate change in the Kimberley region found the intense drought coincided with the disappearance of a pre-Aboriginal style of rock paintings about 7000 years ago.
Ancient rock art from the region is divided into two distinctive styles: Gwion and Wandjina.
The Gwion rock-art style lasted some 10,000 years before the final image was painted. Wandjina paintings only appeared about 4000 years ago.
The study, sponsored by the Kimberley Foundation of Australia, for the first time offers an explanation for this 3000 year gap.
“The likely reason for the demise of the Gwion artists was a mega-drought spanning approximately 1500 years, brought on by changing climate conditions that caused the collapse of the Australian summer monsoon,” says associate professor Hamish McGowan of the University of Queensland’s School of Geography.
MEANWHILE, Australia’s politicians and the Climate Crisis Industry are succeeding in destroying Australia’s economy through the stealth implementation of draconian climate change policy that they believe will future-proof Australia against bad weather and events like the current NSW drought, where some areas have not seen any decent rain for 2 years. 1,498 years less than when “rapid climate change” brought on Australia’s natural ‘Mega-Drought’ around 7,000 years ago.
