Economist Stephen Moore: “Energy is the master resource. Without it, we return to a Stone Age existence. Life in its absence is nasty, brutish and short. Is that where the radical Greens, one of the most influential political forces in America today, would take us? If we continue to follow their advice, electric power and fuel will become more expensive (as President Obama has admitted). [A recent] Investor’s Business Daily editorial noted, ‘as the Sierra Club, billionaire Tom Steyer and the Obama administration rage war against coal and other fossil fuel,’ we could end up seeing ‘rolling brownouts and even blackouts in the years ahead.’ In other words, the apocalypse confronting America may not be the havoc of ‘climate change,’ but a slow-motion return to a medieval lifestyle. … In fact, the editorial notes, we get about 90 percent of our power from sources that the Left is trying to shut down. … I wonder how many young people will be so excited about ‘green energy’ when … outages are commonplace and they come to the realization that life without those ‘dirty’ sources of power won’t be so wonderful.”
Patriot Post – Digest For Monday
My Opinion: Let’s see. Coal plants pollute. Wind farms kill some (stupid) birds. Solar Power Farms may disrupt the horny toads & scorpions lifestyle. (And don’t they use up all the Sun so there won’t be any Sun left for the rest of us in a BaZillion years?) Wave Power Farms kill surfers. Microwave transmissions fry gnats that the world cannot do without. Batteries pollute AND make life too easy except when they run out and we get our exercise getting off our fat lazy asses to hunt down new batteries which are always in the very last place you look. And dead. So we use more gas (thus polluting more) making an emergency trip to the store for more new batteries. Home Fuel Cell generators are way spendy and discharge nasty H2O. Home Solar Units are inefficient and work only during the day. Geothermal is also spendy, messy, and probably is stealing Natural Heat from Mother Nature.
Did I miss anything? Am I ready to start my own Religion/Movement now? We could call it “Stupid People Against Anything Remotely Making Sense And Promoting Humanity.” Call ourselves SPAARMSAPH and have a Dodo Bird as our mascot. Our Motto could be: Humanity. Infesting Everywhere!
