The steep price of weapon energy for political gain
Before Russia armed energy with the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had the monopoly to keep global economies at bay by raising prices or limiting supply at will. But now there is a more insidious tension of militarization energy as it incorporates the fear of CO2 emissions aligned with questionable anthropogenic (man-made) global warming, politicization of climate change and horribly destructive, zero-decarbonization growth movement.
In reality, Student CO2 levels are good for continents like Africa, which belies the truth that the American and Western public includes little how prosperity, health and wealth begin with reliable and affordable energy and electricity. Currently, Californians believe they can stabilize their failing grid is prone to power outages due to increased sales and use of electric vehicles or renewables (wind and solar), which Californians oppose lawsuits. California and the Biden administration have a retrospective understanding of basic power and electricity requirements as well as prohibition of less emitting natural gas.
California, the United States, and Western countries like Australia should consider how Pennsylvania transformed its state by embracing hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, which resulted in economic growth. New green deals or politically militarized infrastructure bills leaning towards renewable energy and utility-scale battery storage systems, which lead to grid outages, coal, natural gas, oil and nuclear for energy and electricity is a recipe for a disaster.
Over two hundred people deceased in the Texas polar vortex in February when power outages ravaged the state. There are life and death consequences in choosing one form of energy for electricity over another: renewables over fossil fuels and nuclear.
The choices are happening because left-wing environmentalists and their political allies believe “science is settled” on global warming / climate change. The opposite is true–science is not installedâAnd public opinion on the global warming registers low on matters of concern. Yet the militarization of affordable, abundant, flexible, reliable and scalable energy and electricity continues unabated. Even stoves, appliances and natural gas furnaces Log on global warming / climate change. What is achieved is that the so-called indefinite climate change action does more prejudice that good.
It’s about the Western political militarization of energy policies, but China is playing a much more dangerous game with global health and peace. China’s recent pledge of CO2 reduction is lie. If the Biden administration believe its promise to reduce emissions, the greatest tragedy is the foreign policy coup that the Chinese are pulling from these unworkable promises. âCommunist China generated 53% of the world’s total coal-fired power generation in 2020, 9% more than in 2015. (Another) 46.1 GW of new coal-fired projects last year Â», According to Reuters. “That’s more new coal-fired energy approved in 2020 than the previous three years combined.”
China is never in the process of becoming carbon neutral, decarbonizing its power generation sector or moving towards net zero. It is arming energy in all its forms and the West, led by the Biden administration, and Western environmentalists are buying this nonsense. China is also arm the entire supply chain of rare earths and exotic minerals for all types of batteries used in mobile phones and large-scale storage systems, power grids, homes and electric vehicles. These gains rely on slave labor to build the components necessary for the decarbonization effort.
An organization based in the West–The Rhodium Group–possesses reported China’s “greenhouse gas emissions exceed all other developed nations combined.” China abruptly replied that it had zero intention reduce its increasing environmental damage. Unlike the West, which is led by the United States, China is aware that the higher use of energy means life, prosperity and becoming the main hegemonic power of this century.
But make no mistake, China’s emissions and continued lies to the West about zero carbon promises are armed. A policy armed with an energy that will eclipse the impact China’s actions against the coronaviruses have had an impact on global economies and global health.
It is a political and militarized myth, the use of fossil fuels is in decline. Yet the Biden administration presses in this narrative by including an 80% clean energy standard on the U.S. electricity grid and carbon-free sources by 2030 in the newly proposed infrastructure bill. Imprudently, new reports find these goals can be achieved at no additional cost without factoring in the new long-distance transmission needed across the United States and energy storage that costs 1.5 million per megawatts of electric power.
The big assumptions about why clean energy can’t come fast enough are well founded falsely on the âhockey stickâ premise of global warming, which has been repeatedly debunked; and computer models of climate which have always been wrong.
Yet these weapons climatic fantasies keep going, which are nothing more than a quest for tax dollars and votes to subject Western voters to the whims of white and male billionaires such as Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and George Soros. This militarization of energy for political, personal, and power ends will bring Western nations back Middle Ages and jeopardize global security.
The “horrible truthOn the militarization of clean energy, renewables, China, climate change and the Biden administration, it’s all about using solar panels and wind turbines for electricity. Both “Wind and solar power generation is intermittent, and that intermittency is a problem.” This armed narrative is rarely contested. Additionally, utility-scale battery storage is expensive, inefficient, and increases renewable energy costs for taxpayers and taxpayers.
To arm or not, that is the question: try eliminate fossil fuels and watch life as most people know it will end when most emission policies are “ineffective. It is time for this militarization of energy to end. Energy means life. Jobs trump politics, harnessing energy for staff, business, or political gain, and climate change should take precedence over human flourishing.
