Going Green

The Green movement really has nothing to worry about.

If coal is shut down and electricity prices spike or the grid becomes unreliable the people who voted against coal will be out of office. For decades.

The only way to get off coal is to find a cheaper alternative.

Keep up with just say no and the reaction will be - no way.

The success of the Green movement will lead to its failure because instead of putting the money into research it has put the money into politics.

And worse - if we are headed into a little ice age because of PDO reversal and the 300 year solar cycle which is past its peak, it will take 50 to 75 years for any one to listen to Greens again.

Politics is about putting guns to people's heads. The tricky thing is the guns you once held can be turned on you.

The only sustainable Green movement is one that is profitable: go Green and get richer. No guns required.

Inspired by Coal Is My Worst Nightmare.

Shouldn't that be, ". . .is nothing to worry about."?

You of course recall the famous bon mot of The Chairman:

"Every Communist must grasp the truth: 'Political Power grows out of the barrel of a gun'". --Selected Works, Vol.II, p 224.

This this saying in mind when a political ploy is proposed.

You are so right Simon...it comes down to:"Who is holding the gun?"...

Greens don't have to be profitable to be sustainable. All they have to do is convince or fool the public that their theories or policies are in their best interest. They have alrady done it with hysteria on "global warming," helped by an "objective" media. With the levers of government power at their disposal destroy they are then free to regulate, confiscate and redistribute as needed. Long term success is ensured by their control of the "educate" part of the equation.
