The Real Goal of the Green Climate Crusade

Environmentalists claim that our use of carbon-based energy is altering the climate, making us more vulnerable to climate disasters. Human survival, they insist, requires the immediate abandonment of fossil fuels in favor of carbon-free sources. So why do environmentalist groups vehemently oppose projects involving every alternative form of energy ever proposed to replace fossil fuels—including wind farms and solar power plants? And why do they ignore the dramatic degree to which industrial development under capitalism has reduced the risk of harm from severe climate events? Before we rush headlong into drastic climate policies and energy rationing, a critical examination of these policies is urgently needed. Dr. Keith Lockitch will address these important issues and answer audience questions.

  1. I have read these European pundits– especially ones who actually operate power plants– and they agree that a "policy" is needed: the presumption is that action is necessary and sufficient to quell fears, not because of any research based methodology, and the underlying policy enforced with fines, not technology, such monies to be used for undisclosed purposes.
    Thus an edgèd sword: the consumer hurt by increased costs, the producer hurt by increased costs, and the beneficiaries being government employees, aka "job security", and somebody being re-elected and pet projects re-distributing wealth.
    It may be noticed I am taking a pragmatic approach, not a moral one: the presumption that European governments do not protect property rights of their citizens nor their companies is (at worst) an historical observation.
