Hansen: “The notion that renewable energies and batteries alone will provide all needed energy is fantastical. It is also a grotesque idea, because of the staggering environmental pollution from mining and material disposal, if all energy was derived from renewables and batteries.”
There are a lot of wacky schemes around for forcing people to stop using carbon-based energy, even though fire is still the basis for human civilization.
James Hansen is falsifying climate alarm right before our eyes.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition trace the history of the "global warming" scam, which is founded on equating carbon dioxide with carbon to give the public an image of carbon dioxide as "dirty." They cite both Canadian and American politicians and scientists who have advanced this false narrative.
President-elect Donald Trump’s senior space policy advisor, Bob Walker, recently observed that NASA has been reduced to "a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring." Instead, "We see NASA in an exploration role, in deep space research." He added, "Mr. Trump’s decisions will be based upon solid science, not politicized science."
James Hansen, a former NASA scientist dubbed the “godfather” of global warming's new doomsday scenario suffers from one (well, at least one) major flaw.
Professor Larry Bell lays out a history of corrupted science dating to the acid rain scare that enriched companies through the sale of sulfur dioxide credits -- and the desire of companies like Enron, politicians like Al Gore, and richly rewarded scientists like James Hansen to equally profit from the sale of carbon dioxide credits. He further shows how these profiteers have fed their greed through false linkages between hurricanes and glaciers and carbon dioxide emissions. The hope is that the "man in the street" will be fed up with these charlatans before they do permanent damage to the reputation of good science everywhere.
Reuters reports German renewable energy subsidies may cost its consumers an extra $1.34 trillion over the next 20 years (about $6,400 per family)—but won’t provide much dependable power! In the U.S., President Obama has ordered his EPA to cut back electricity, starting with the coal-fired plants and working up to the natural gas from “fracking.”
Is it just me? Or do you detect some eco-sanctimonious hypocrisy in much of the “save the planet” anti-fossil crusading that is going around as well?
