Michael Moore stumbles upon
the truth about so-called
'green' energy

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 4/22/2020 5:45:18 AM

Michael Moore is worried about Earth, although he’s not focused on fossil fuel and cow farts. Instead, he’s worried because he just discovered that green energy is a scam. That’s the point in his new documentary, “Planet of the Humans,” which was released Tuesday for free on YouTube. In a long and poorly written introduction on the YouTube page, the people who made the video explain that the green revolution could have worked out if only the whole movement hadn't sold itself out to the rich and powerful, resulting in a sham and a scam.

It might just be an "oops" if no one hadn't been forever screaming at Moore and the greens these exact same facts. To not know this stuff you would have to be as dumb as a slug or willfully ignorant to a fault. Or maybe following an agenda that is collapsing all around you. What Moore is NOT doing is broadening his awareness. He is just climbing from one mud hole into another. The general theory about infinite population growth on a finite planet being bad is, of course, correct. The question is, what is the solution? The solution is capitalism and advanced societies. Advanced societies have lower birth rates and are far more efficient to make better use of limited resources. In general, third world countries have the highest birth rates. Moore being a Communist will be incapable of recognizing this reality. Maybe he will have another epiphany before he dies. The rest of us shouldn't bother to wait for him.

Yo, Mikey. Put down that double cheeseburger and stare into the light. It's hoax city, a way to shuttle our hard-earned tax dollars off to the third world and make the local lefties feel like they're saving civilization. It's bull cookies, baby.

The green agenda has been a hoax from day one. It is built on lies. Calling the all electric car non-polluting is one of the whoppers. Just the chemicals and energy needed to manufacture the batteries for one are more polluting than the fumes from an internal combustion car. And, disposal of those batteries is a nightmare. But, that is just the beginning! Those batteries need to be recharged. The additional power that power plants have to produce to charge those batteries increases the pollution they produce. If it comes from a fossil fuel power plant, it is about the same as that from an internal combustion car. From a nuclear plant, the portion associated with processing the nuclear fuel plus a nasty disposal problem when the spent fuel needs replacing. Wind or Solar, the pollution of making and maintaining the wind mills or collectors and the backup generators when the Sun doesn't shine or the Wind doesn't blow,

Its easy to laugh at Big Mike, but he is an accomplished propaganda pusher and the gravy train is slowing down. Through President Trump's leadership the USA achieved oil independence. The current slump is entirely related to the faux-shut down due to the China virus. When majority re-opening is achieved our economy will bounce back; there is nothing wrong with our fundamentals. (That is why the Left is fighting so hard to keep us shut down.) However, the globalists have spent trillions over decades to advance their scam and install their solar panels and windmills. As their critics are proven right by everyday experience, more people are getting wise to the folly. We also have a President that is not a shill for the Cloward-Priven strategy and is more than willing to educate the public about the true nature of its proponents. This video is Mike's attempt to retreat and regroup. It is no longer tenable to push the expensive green government solutions because they have being discredited. So, Mikey is throwing the blame onto corrupt capitalists that betrayed the movement; the ideology is pure but the implementation was hi-jacked. This allows the Greenies to hold fast to their dogma while continuing to ignore its true outcomes and results. Think Hitler in the bunker. MAGA:KAG - The Best Is Yet To Come.

In the early 1970s, the Arabs decided to scam us and cut off the oil flow, causing a lot of disruption in normal lives. "Experts" told us that we only had a decade or two of oil left, and it would be getting more expensive every year, inexorably, nothing to be done about it. I chose to take several solar energy courses in college under Dr. Eric Farber, one of the real pioneers of solar energy engineering, as part of mech eng degrees. I built hybrid electric vehicles as part of my master's thesis, considered a career in solar engineering. After years of intensive study of alternate energy, it finally became clear to me that while all this "solar energy stuff' would actually work, it would never be economically viable. I had a career in making advanced weapons, and twenty years after abandoning solar energy, I designed and built a solar electric system for a remote vacation cabin, where mains power wasn't available. Twenty five years later, that solar power system has some newer control electronics, and an addition of some more capacity, but it still provides the lights, water and other small electrical requirements. But most energy requirements are from propane and wood. Solar heating, cooling, cooking and refrigeration are ridiculously uneconomical. And I still know that solar energy will NEVER be economically viable anywhere that you can get access to the main power lines from a central power plant. Moore is VERY ignorant and many decades late to realize what I realized in 1976 or so.

No doubt, NeverTrumpers are clutching their pearls over the visceral new campaign ad released under President Trump’s imprimatur. It certainly isn’t gentlemanly the way George W.

But in an era of phony impeachment efforts and Special Counsel investigations and “blood on his hands” accusations, it is giving back to the Democrats exactly what they have hurling Trump’s way.

A couple of weeks ago I predicted correctly that President Trump would reopen the economy midway between the point where the Democrats would blame him for doing it too early and the point where the Democrats would blame him for opening the economy too late. I now realized that the president has gone one better than that, he has actually threaded the needle on opening the economy. He has decreed a road-map and left it up to the governors how to drive the road back to town. The genius of this move, to me, is breathtaking. It really puts the Democratic governors on the spot.
