First just to get this out there, AGW( anthropogenic global warming( Man made global warming)) is a lie, period. We have no idea the earths actual
natural ambient temp, it has been much hotter and colder many times, we are simply at present in "the perfect temp" for our race, which the universe
cares naught about.
Also the sun itself is what warms and cools us, at it pleasure, and at its want, not ours. Comparing co2 and global warming, is the same as saying the
reason you got burned was that you were standing in a gas cloud that trapped to much heat, instead of acknowledging the fact your right next to a very
OK back to the topic I wanted to further discuss with you.
There are not any, I repeat ANY, viable replacements for petroleum. All "green" technologies are gimicks, pipe dreams, fictional constructs, at
If we had a single one that is even within 1/2 the efficiency of fossil fuels, we would already be using them.
Solar- not even close, they pay themselves off in around 40 years depending on the model, yet only last for around 10 to 15, so they are mone pits,
not viable solutions at present.
Wind- LOL, OMG ROFL BWAHAHAHAHAHA.....they are extremely expensive to build, maintain, and they arent even fully useful all the time, as the wind does
as it wants, not as we will it. Oh and they have killed more birds than thanksgiving dinner.
Hydroelectric- now we are talking.....whats that ....oh ya, we already dammed everthing worth damming, and the "greenies" want them all removed,
because they harm the native species, as the waters are extremely cold at the outputs, as it comes from hundreds of feet below the reach of the suns
warming rays, thus killing off man native species that cant survive in the frigid waters for miles downstream, oh and the salmon, but salmon ladders
have done alot to overcome this.
Atomic- well it is ok, if you dont mind the .gov having to spend an arm and a leg to build it, then subsidies it, all the while praying our triple
redundant "fail safe" systems dont fail....whats that? Oh ya, doo doo occurs, and they do somtimes, causing widespread, and very long lasting
Bio fuels- ethanol, AKA white lightning, moon shine, grain liquor. It takes more energy to make than can be extracted from it, some estimates put it
at almost 2 gallons of gasoline worth of energy, for 1 gallon of ethanol produced. Not of course mentioning the real kicker, every bushel of corn used
for bio fuels is aother not for sale on the market, driving everyday food prices through the roof. Oh and it isnt even any better on the
So I mean, I am quite learned on this subject, please enlighten me as to what technologies your refering to that arent "bunk science" or cost
prohibitive. I will be all ears, and very happy to learn, though I wont be holding my breath.
