Unreliable Green Energy Has the World Running Back to Coal and Nuclear

    Mike Maguire

It’s clear that the fake green energy fairy tales are massively failing to meet expectations. We know that it’s impossible for them to defy the laws of physics/energy, economics and biology/science.

 Unfortunately too many people are generating too much money with crony capitalism, junk science and political agenda/government money and they have become the gatekeepers of information to convince others that there schemes will work.
No authentic proof of concept evidence that any other realm would require before proceeding……just trust their non science based promises.
This is the biggest part of the corruption cog. Greedy people exploiting the dynamics to make massive amounts of money………….until it falls apart.

They get rich/powerful,  while the energy delivery system serving consumers/citizens gets damaged. Their intelligence is stolen with junk science about a fake climate crisis to convince of the need to save the planet.
Ironically, by wrecking the planet with things like wind turbines and batteries. Diffuse, intermittent, expensive energy that kills birds/bats/whales. Destroys landscapes and ecosystems. Tearing up the earth for raw materials. Then after 20-25 years go into landfills and need to be replaced.

This is supposed to be a good idea to save a planet from the fuel that’s emitting a beneficial gas, CO2. The building block for life that’s the only fuel which is REALLY greening up the planet based on the REAL law of photosynthesis. The optimal level of CO2 for life it double the current level. The current climate(weather) and CO2 level for most life is an authentic scientific OPTIMUM by every objective standard. The climate crisis was during  the Little Ice Age and the  dangerously low CO2 levels until the Industrial age boosted them, resulting in the current booming biosphere.

This has been a veritable hijacking of the the science, energy and political sectors with governments, media and crony capitalists colluding for their self serving benefits.

They have a tremendous amount of power and the only thing that was ever going to separate them from it was always going to be when the scam runs out of steam.
This can only happen when the markets experience enough pain from the sure to come negative impacts of the schemes being imposed.
It’s only then that enough people will appreciate the reality of being lied to.

That’s because there are still too many people that still believe there’s a climate crisis. They aren’t atmospheric scientists(I actually am). They just believe the convincing climate crisis false narratives and propaganda.
Climate realists are far too outnumbered and out powered and have been labeled as deniers to keep us from making a positive impact which would interfere with the objectives of those being enriched.

The only way this was ever going to end was with the application of the fake green schemes in the REAL world replacing the promises.  We fight tenaciously to stop them from going forward and it hurts when we see damage to our world from these schemes.

The truth is, the only way for this hijacking to be interupted is going to come from it failing catastrophically in the real world. Bad stuff has to happen. Sorry, it must be that way. People are NOT going to stop believing there’s a climate crisis any time soon. More believe in it today than 2 decades ago. Since then, the biggest impact has been the planet greening up/biosphere booming. But the convincing  propaganda is what counts. The authentic science is not turning that around…….yet.
That’s because propaganda is what people believe. It defines THEIR truth. If a lie is their truth, you are wasting your time showing them the authentic truth because their minds define the authentic truth as the lie.

 The only thing that can change that is something powerful in the real world which impacts them with a personal experience which contradicts what they thought they knew in a way that forces a reconciliation. Their eyes/brains are opened and they suddenly appreciate the authentic truth and discard the propaganda/DISinformation.

Easier said then done though because people go to places that tell them what they want to hear/read. Almost everyone comes here for that reason. The clear failure of green energy schemes is in the early stages but only people that knew they were destined to fail are seeing it. The rest, are still being sold on them by climate/energy charlatans. The charlatans will NEVER come out and suddenly tell people things they were not being completely honest about. They will continue to defend their turf………..forever. People that continue to go to those sources will get constant reinforcement to maintain the brainwash……forever. The brainwash will continue to be more powerful than the real world………to a certain point.

Modest failures or even major failures in some places are probably not close to that point. Propaganda can totally justify these as outliers which don’t truly represent the overall schemes.
It will likely  take catastrophic, widespread  failures before the authentic reality ship that consists of what the composite of peoples belief in these realms represents, reaches a significant shift in the other direction.
The ONLY way that can happen is for people to experience enough real world, direct pain from fake green energy schemes.

We know that WILL happen………but wait, there’s one thing coming to the rescue before that.

 What if there was a very cheap reliable method for carbon capture that was not carbon sequestering but instead, broke the bonds of CO2 and SO2 and other gases in emissions and precipited their solid elements out(C and S) while releasing gases, like O2 in the process?

News of this is right around the corner and it will save the coal industry.  With this new invention/technology, new coal plants will likely be built in the US before 2030, especially if the next president is a Republican.

Stay tuned!

Namibia makes third oil discovery in the Orange Basin

New discoveries could make Namibia, the southern neighbour of OPEC member Angola, another oil producer along the African Atlantic coast.

I agree with the SO2 part of this but not that CO2 is not contributing greenhouse gas warming.

Net-zero catastrophe beginning?

Coal left in the world (BOE):

Summary Table           

(short ton, st)
(barrels of oil equivalent) 
Coal Reserves 
 1,139,471,430,000 5,458,633,478,739
Coal Consumption 
8,561,852,178 41,015,519,747

The world has proven reserves equivalent to 133.1 times its annual consumption. This means it has about 133 years of coal left (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves).

Georgia Nuclear Rebirth Arrives 7 Years Late, $17B Over Cost

 Two nuclear reactors in Georgia were supposed to herald a nuclear power revival in the United States. But the project is seven years late and $17 billion over budget as Georgia Power Co. announced the first new reactor at its Plant Vogtle could reach full electrical output by Saturday.

They’re the first U.S. reactors built from scratch in decades — and maybe the most expensive power plant ever. Georgia electric customers have already paid billions, and state regulators will ultimately decide if they’re on the hook for billions more.

Prices are really soaring with an energy crunch in California in 2023.

The 26.9 cents per kWh Los Angeles households paid for electricity in April 2023 was 63.0 percent more than the nationwide average of 16.5 cents per kWh. Last April, electricity costs were 66.2 percent higher in Los Angeles compared to the nation. In the past five years, prices paid by Los Angeles area consumers for electricity exceeded the U.S. average by 37.8 percent or more in the month of April. (See chart 2.)

Chart 2. Average prices for electricity, the United States and Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA, 2019–23 (as of April)
