According to the new narrative, flagged here on the New Catallaxy, wind and solar power are unsustainable, dirty, expensive and catastrophic for the environment. The root of the problem is the fake science news that is put about by the collection of vested interests that apparently hate the western world and everything that makes for peace, freedom and prosperity in it.
This article refers to a publication by a heavyweight scientist, not really news for people around here but valuable as an uncompromising statement backed by the best science.
The author notes that the emphasis on a false climate crisis is becoming a “tragedy for modern civilisation”, which depends on reliable, affordable and environmentally viable energy. “The windmills, solar panels and backup batteries have none of these qualities,” he states. This falsehood has been pushed by what has been termed a climate industrial complex, comprising some scientists, most media, industrialists and legislators. Furthermore, he continues, this grouping has “somehow” managed to convince many that CO2 in the atmosphere, a gas necessary for life on Earth, one which we exhale with every breath, is an environmental poison.
In Manheimer’s view, the partnership among self-interested businesses, grandstanding politicians and alarmist campaigners, “truly is an unholy alliance”.
