Renewable Energy Is A Taxpayer Funded Scam

I will unabashedly admit that I am heartily sick and tired of the whole climate change and “green” energy scam that has been perpetrated against us. Pseudoscience and outright lies have been used for years in order to sell the public on the idea that we must make all kinds of sacrifices in order to “Save The Earth”.

One of those sacrifices?

Reduction of CO2 emissions here in the US to offset the exploding emissions generated by China. China’s emissions are many times that of the US, yet somehow it is the US has to make the ‘sacrifices’ to offset China’s emissions? Really?

That’s a ‘sucker’ move and the climate change and “green energy” proponents know it. We shouldn’t be crippling our nation and its economy to offset China’s increasing emissions.

I have to say the “green” energy scam has been one of the more effective cons played on the American public. According to the scammers, solar and wind energy were supposed to replace most of our traditional energy sources like oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear. The only problem with that claim?

It’s a complete and utter lie.

We’ve seen other countries go all in on renewable energy and every single time that they couldn’t even come close and fossil fueled backups were required to meet energy needs. In at least two cases – Germany and the UK – those backups being fueled by coal. Yeah, like that’s going to help reduce CO2 emissions. (It didn’t help that Germany shut down all of its nuclear power plants, something that made no sense to me whatsoever.) We’ve been having similar problems here in the US.

... in California, where politicians now require all new homes to have solar panels, all new cars sold in 2035 to be zero-emission, and all the state's electricity to come from carbon-free resources by 2045.

They're getting results, but not good ones: California's cost of electricity increased three times faster than in the rest of America.

People in Washington State pay about 11 cents per kilowatt-hour. In Oregon, 13 cents. In California, now almost 30 cents.

Do they at least get reliable energy for that? No.

The big problem with wind and solar power, of course, is that they don't work when the wind doesn't blow or the sun doesn't shine. Sometimes that happens when people most want heat or AC.

Increased use of "renewables" is why blackouts are more common in California. Bloomenergy says there were over 25,000 in 2019 -- thousands more than the previous year.

"We failed to predict and plan," said Gov. Gavin Newsom. Right.

Instead, they embraced unscientific green fantasies.

Requiring all new homes to have solar panels is a big reason California has the most expensive housing in America. The average house costs almost $800,000.

And let’s not even get into wind which has turned out to not be all that great either. Between service life and maintenance intervals being shorter than promised, capacity factors being less than a third of the plate capacity, and the fact that wind farms can take up a lot of land area for the amount of power the generate. The same can be said for solar, if not more so.
