How Green Is Green Technology?

You drive an electric car. You feel good about yourself. You’re saving the environment, so we all can bread cleaner, healthier air.
Not really.

California, the sixth-largest economy globally, emits only 1% of the world’s carbon emissions. Still, the governor — Gavin Newsom — wants to ban gas-powered cars in his state by 2035 in favor of clean, “zero-emissions” electric cars.
Do electric cars help the environment? Bjørn Lomborg explains the dirty secret of the clean auto-industry.

Are we going clean?

Or…, maybe going crazy?

The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime, will emit 31 metric tons of CO2 based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption, and average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just three tons more across its production, diesel consumption, and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro.

Fires, Fires, And More Fires. Is It Global Warming Or Land Mismanagement?

According to California governor Gavin Newsom, the massive, deadly wildfires in America’s West are caused by climate change. In reality, poor forest management and excessive regulation are bigger causes. Michael Shellenberger explains.

Government fueled fires.

I like these short, no-nonsense videos by John Stossel. In this video, he uses the help of Michael Shellenberger, the ecologist, once named “The Hero of the Environment” by Time Magazine, to explain the connection between brush fires, climate change, and some small —often overlooked — thing called forest management.

Mike is a dedicated ecologist, but it is clear that he’s not a member of the alarmist group. He believes that climate change is real, but disagrees that this is our most serious problem.

Climate change is real, [but] it’s not the end of the world. It’s not our most serious environmental problem.

Is devastation the key to happiness?

For some people, it is.

It’s stunning how California’s governor uses fire devastation in his state as a backdrop for his happy climate change announcement, where, with a grin on his face, he calls it a perfect storm and states that:

The debate is over around climate change.

Because California wildfires are undoubtedly caused by climate change, and if you don’t believe it, the governor wants you to:

Just come to the state of California. Observe it with your own eyes.

Observe what? All the destruction caused by climate-change-activist and supporting them bureaucrats, who for decades prevented proper forest management?

Thank you for the invitation, but no thanks. Watching people’s houses turned to ashes is not my kind of fun.

This year wildfires have burned more than four million acres (two million acres last year), and we still have three months to go.

The Religion Of Green Replacing God With Environmentalism

Has environmentalism grown into something more than just a good-faith effort to protect the Earth? Is it now equivalent to a religion? And if it is, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Religion Of Green

PragerU’s latest short documentary, hosted by Will Witt, examines today’s environmental movement’s origins, agenda, and motives. What he finds raises some challenging questions for anyone who sincerely cares about the future of our planet.

Published by PragerU on Sep 25, 2020

Seek, and you will find.

(Matthew 7:7.)

So, what do they seek, and why is it worth all that hassle for them? Michael Shellenberger explained:

Most of us want something to believe in. Most of us need some kind of faith, some sort of belief, and higher power. And so that shifted for many educated people from a belief in god to nature. So nature became a sort of the new god.

Q: Why do they need a new god?
A: It’s simple. Their god can not be more powerful then they are. I think it’s an ego thing.

Those huge egos won’t let them be a part of any religion already in existence. They are too arrogant to submit themselves to rules they have no control over.

So, what’s the next best thing?

  • Manufacture a crisis like global cooling/warming/climate change.
  • Create a movement around it — like, in this case, environmentalism.
  • Elevate that movement to the rank of a new religion.
  • Create a new god for that religion, and then boss him around.

Good luck with that.
