Climate Depot's Morano:
"This may be a first: An expired climate tipping point we somehow all missed from 40 years ago!? President
Jimmy Carter could not have been more wrong about energy in the 1970s.
For the Washington Post to now claim that the alleged 'climate crisis'
could have been avoided if Ronald Reagan lost in 1980 is a bizarro world
fantasy. If Carter were concerned at all about "climate change" in the
1979s, it would have been about man-made global cooling -- not warming.
Jimmy Carter’s Energy Speech of April 1977: Remember the 1970's energy 'consensus'?! Pres. Carter: 'The oil and natural gas that we rely on for 75% of our energy are simply running out.... World oil production can probably keep going up for another 6 or 8 years. But sometime in the 1980's, it can't go up any more. Demand will overtake production. We have no choice about that' (Reality Check: 2021: American achieves energy dominance for 1st time since Harry Truman was prez!)
(Editor's Note: I'm 75 years old and I've been reading that we're running out of oil all of my life, and yet over and over again we keep using more oil than they said existed, we keep finding oil in such volume there's no risk of running out. Especially if you subscribe the the abyssal abiotic theory of petroleum in that the creation of petroleum is an abiogenic process, and I do. RK)
WaPo excerpt August 18, 2021: Yet now, 40 years removed from the White House, the most famous resident of Plains, Georgia, is riding a new wave of attention as biographers, filmmakers, climate activists and Carter’s fellow Democrats push to recast his presidential legacy, even as Republicans sometimes try to remind voters of the volatile economy and international affairs that doomed Carter to one term. … Altogether, the new works depict not a failed president but an ambitious, far-reaching one who is getting a more nuanced assessment from history than he got from his contemporaries. …
In the past year, however, CNN released a documentary titled: “Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President” and independent documentarists Jim Pattiz and Will Pattiz debuted “Carterland” at the Atlanta Film Festival. …
“Carter had these very farsighted views of how he wanted to solve the energy crisis, and it involved conservation, but also involved turning away from fossil fuels and turning toward renewable energy, things like solar power and other renewables,” said Jim Pattiz, 29.
Carter put solar panels on the White House, and he called for “shared sacrifice” to confront energy shortages. But he couldn’t overcome voters’ frustrations with fuel prices and availability. The solar panels were removed during Reagan’s presidency. But Will Pattiz, 30, said time vindicated Carter. If “President Carter had gotten an extra term in office,” he said, “we likely wouldn’t be having a climate crisis right now.”
Carter likely wouldn’t go that far. In 2019, the former president
used his last annual presentation at The Carter Center in Atlanta to
blame himself for his post-presidential center being “basically mute on
the subject of global warming.”........More Here..........
