Around the world, backlash against expensive climate-change policies

From Alberta to Australia, from Finland to France, and beyond, voters are increasingly showing their displeasure with expensive energy policies imposed by politicians in an inane effort to purportedly fight human-caused climate change.

As daily headlines become ever more shrill, hyping climate fears based on projections made by unverified climate models, the international public is becoming increasingly wary of the Chicken Little claims of impending climate doom. Voters in developed countries are saying “enough is enough” to high energy prices that punish the most vulnerable but do nothing to control the weather.

It’s theft and control and that’s all it’s ever been.

    In America and around the globe governments have created a multi-billion dollar Climate Change Industrial Complex. A lot of people are getting really, really rich off of the climate change industry.

    How big is the Climate Change Industrial Complex today? Surprisingly, no one seems to be keeping track of all the channels of funding. A few years ago Forbes magazine went through the federal budget and estimated about $150 billion in spending on climate change and green energy subsidies during Obuma’s first term.

    That didn’t include the tax subsidies that provide a 30 percent tax credit for wind and solar power — so add to those numbers about $8 billion to $10 billion a year. Then add billions more in costs attributable to the 29 states with renewable energy mandates that require utilities to buy expensive “green” energy.

    Worldwide the numbers are gargantuan. Around five years ago, a leftist group called the Climate Policy Initiative issued a study which found that “Global investment in climate change” reached $359 billion that year. Then to give you a sense of how money-hungry these planet-saviors are, the CPI moaned that this spending “falls far short of what’s needed” a number estimated at $5 trillion.

    For $5 trillion we could feed everyone on the planet, end malaria, and provide clean water and reliable electricity to every remote village in Africa. And we would probably have enough money left over to find a cure for cancer and Alzheimers.

      Good idea, better idea; for five trillion dollars we could send every greenie, carbon tax bureaucrat, Jet-Set celeb urging the rest of us to lower our carbon-footprint, PLUS Al Gore to Mars. They’d love it there, no climate change (so little atmosphere there’s barely a climate), no Gasoline, no Nuclear Power, they can put up all the wind turbines they want without any fear of killing endangered species.

      Your comment is so good I’m putting it up as a post to follow this one. BTW, I’m sure you’ve heard about the sites that WordPress has de-platformed. I’m starting to look around for a safe webhost to migrate this blog to. I figure you know a few things about that.
