Energy use is the rise from poverty

Alan Caruba notes that the Greens are Against All Energy Anywhere

Were it not for Green propaganda, the U.S. would not be wasting billions of taxpayer dollars on idiotic wind and solar farms that are utterly dependent on government subsidies and mandates that require utilities to use the pitifully small amounts of electricity they produce.

The same can be said of the equally idiotic regulatory mandates for ethanol that drive up the cost of every gallon of gas pumped while, at the same time, reducing the mileage and damaging to your car’s engine. Even Al Gore thinks ethanol is a bad idea.

Ironically, more people have died from wind turbines than nuclear plants. In 2008, there were 41 recorded deaths. The carnage on birds and bats is rarely mentioned by the media. Despite all the blather about Three Mile Island not one person has died [in the West] from radiation since nuclear plants were first introduced.

The famous picture of the Korean peninsula is provided. That should be considered in the context of stories of mass starvation in North Korea this winter.

There are reasons the most productive, most healthy, and most vigorous countries also use the most energy. The ‘Greens’ use energy consumption as an epithet but that is like saying that being well fed is wrong and should be avoided. The amount of money that is being spent on energy schemes that are ideological and not practical is wasted money. It is not a small amount and that means that many lives will be, and have been harmed.
