We Don’t Need No Stinking Giant Fans

Study: Renewable Energy does Nothing to Reduce CO2 Emissions

According to these reports, US$3660 billion has been spent on global climate change projects over the period 2011–2018. Fifty-five percent of this expenditure has gone to wind and solar energy. According to world energy reports, the contribution of wind and solar to world energy consumption has increased from 0.5% to 3% over this period. Meanwhile, coal, oil, and gas continue to supply 85% of the world’s energy consumption, with hydroelectricity and nuclear providing most of the remainder. With this in mind, we consider the potential engineering challenges and environmental and socioeconomic impacts of the main energy sources (old and new). We find that the literature raises many concerns about the engineering feasibility as well as environmental impacts of wind and solar.

  1. Turdeau and Butts know better than those climate deniers.

    Better raise those carbon taxes.

    No hope with these people at the helm.

  2. Nuclear power is always pooh-pooed by the eco-tards because they can’t kill capitalism, “redistribute” wealth or freeze people to death with it.
    Just an aside to the electric car lovers out there: part of the California car plan with electrical brown outs is to drain cars if they’re plugged in and charged and feed their power back into the system. Isn’t collectivism great?

  3. Why do people waste their time? It is not about CO2, saving the earth, pollution, ozone depletion, acid rain, none of that.

    It’s about you on your knees. Always has been. Don’t matter how many studies or rational discussions you have about it.

    The trick in picking whom to follow/align with, is spotting the guys who aren’t in it for themselves. There is a big pool of people who could do the job, even do it well. But very few like Pinochet who willingly give up the power when they have done all they think they can accomplish. Hillarys are a dime a dozen. Not many Trumps, or Thatchers, or Diefenbakers out there. Canada’s biggest error, was not keeping Diefenbaker’s Canadian Bill of Rights, and replacing it with Trudeau’s End of Freedom and Decency Charter.

  4. Of Course not…this should have been BLINDINGLY obvious to even the most obtuse. This was NEVER about the Climate nor CO2 but a straight on war against the Fossil Fuel industry such as to destroy Western Hemisphere Capitalism and when that faltered, along comes this BULLSHIT SCAMDEMIC to continue the destruction with complete lockdowns etc.

    100% choreographed by Totalitarian planetary Elites spouting Marxist ideals and wearing NAZI Uniforms w/ ChiCom infiltrators egging them on worldwide.

  5. Here’s how you deal with potential climate change in the form of imagined Global-Warming ….. ADAPT
    It’s fairly free and we have been doing this for 1000s of years … successfully.

  6. This push for renewable energy was started by our enemies. The Allies would have lost WW2 without the USA’s ability to manufacture war materials faster than they could be destroyed. The TVA produced the atomic bomb. Hoover dam produced enough electricity to smelt enough aluminum to manufacture half of the total number of airplanes built during WW2. Aluminum and steel can not be produced with renewables.

  7. I still need someone to explain how using carbon taxes or other BS to increase the costs to our clean industry here while giving the coal powered industry in China a free pass will reduce overall pollution or CO2.
    All I can see it doing is driving production from our clean factories to the coal powered ones in China while burning fossil fuels in ships to move the raw materials and finished products back and forth across the ocean.
    How does that help the environment in any way?

    Remember how we were supposed to be locovores and source our food locally to eliminate pollution from transporting it?
    But we’re supposed to buy our steel products from China.

    1. Indeed, the study concluded that the “main takeaway from the study is that public policy should be rational; if a government genuinely wants to reduce CO2 emissions, they should pursue policies which provide a realistic chance of achieving their stated goals, in full awareness of the likely outcomes and consequences of those policies, instead of frittering away public resources on enormously expensive energy programmes which are unlikely to achieve meaningful emissions reductions.”

  8. An excellent discussion with Bjorn Lomberg in the excellent Uncommon Knowledge series with Peter Robinson at the Hoover Institute:


    “This week, a conversation with Bjorn Lomborg, a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution, the president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, and one of the foremost climate experts in the world today. His new book, False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet, is an argument for treating climate as a serious problem but not an extinction-level event requiring such severe and drastic steps as rewiring a large part of the culture and the economy. Bjorn responds directly to some of the most vociferous climate policy critics, including Greta Thunberg, author David Wallace-Wells (The Uninhabitable Earth: Life after Warming), and proponents of the Green New Deal. We also discuss some promising emerging technologies and why worst-case scenarios are often just that—scenarios that are used to motivate the public into action but are not in fact likely to occur. It’s a sobering and even-handed discussion on climate that does not include apocalyptic endings for the planet. ”

    I download these as a podcast and listen to them while driving or put them on while exercising or working in the shop.

  9. > Hurts the Poor

    A double-speak for “enriches the filthy-rich”. Even if the best of us cannot speak the truth, you can imagine what the worst of us think, say, and do.

    Oh, but the filthy rich are the “conservatives” sacred cow!

  10. Who the hell wants to reduce CO2 emissions? It is not a pollutant and we all exhale it with every breath we take. It is part of nature and who we are. Don’t like it, there are many ways for you to stop exhaling it, death being the most effective.
