"The end of green ideology"
"Within this new geopolitical framework, green ideology will survive like a cult or a recipe for economic suicide" ……President Barack Obama's administration has thrown billions of dollars at wind, solar, ethanol, and other alternative-energy resources. ……If California were to rely on solar power for its electricity consumption, the entire state would have to be covered with photovoltaic cells…… We can bet that none of these alternative energies will easily replace oil, gas, and nuclear power in the foreseeable future….. real innovation and entrepreneurial activity, without government support, is taking place in the field of energy generation, such as in the creation of miniaturized nuclear reactors. The most promising breakthrough may well be the discovery of huge reserves of shale gas all over the planet. ……
It is interesting to note, that you can read professor Sorman´s outstanding article in the China Daily, not in any of the major English language western newspapers. No, a sober, realistic and positive analysis like this, is not welcome in the politically correct mainstream media, which are more than happy to publish every piece of rubbish, written by ignorant enviro-fundamentalist scaremongers.
The end of the green ideology will, as an added bonus, also lead to the end of the global warming religion. On must only hope that this happens sooner rather than later, in order to avoid the wasting of the huge sums of money that many of the present western governments now are planning to use in order to fight imaginary human-induced warming.
My Take - At some point the negative impact of greenie ideas and impositions on society will have an impact on societies thinking. The green movement by its very nature is irrational and misanthropic. At some point even the false media will not be able to paint a positive picture about them. Dystopia follows the green movement like the plague follows rats. If that is the case everywhere else in the world, why would be think it would be different here?
Here is more on the Hansen saga....NASA Scientist Accused of Using Celeb Status Among Environmental Groups to Enrich Himself
The NASA scientist who once claimed the Bush administration tried to "silence" his global warming claims is now accused of receiving more than $1.2 million from the very environmental organizations whose agenda he advocated.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, D.C., a group claims NASA is withholding documents that show James Hansen failed to comply with ethics rules and financial disclosures regarding substantial compensation he earned outside his $180,000 taxpayer-paid position as director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
"Hansen's office appears to be somewhat of a rogue operation. It's clearly a taxpayer-funded global warming advocacy organization," said Chris Horner, a co-founder of The American Tradition Institute, which filed the lawsuit. "The real issue here is, has Hansen been asking NASA in writing, in advance, for permission for these outside activities? We have reason to believe that has not been occurring."
My Take – One of the slick ways these people divert attention from what they are doing is to accuse others of perpetrating the very corruption they are practicing. Once again; their attack was that deniers were in it for the money, and on the payroll of multinational corporations. As all of the anthropogenic climate change information has come to light we have discovered the level of corruption with these people is staggering, from scientific fraud and bullying to personal financial gain. Global warming and government grant money has made the term “scientific integrity” an oxymoron.
