  1. It seems the main objective is not the welfare of the people but control of a critical sector of the economy. But then politics has ever been about controlling other people.
    The main difference between Progressivism and Tyranny is Marketing.

  2. The whole concept of “climate goals” is a farce because there is absolutely no valid physics linking carbon dioxide with potential surface warming. The whole radiation paradigm is the wrong one altogether, because radiation impinging on a planet’s surface is NOT the primary determinant of the surface temperature. Hence you cannot correctly deduce that radiation from IR-active (GH) gases will raise the surface temperature. It certainly can’t for water vapor, because we KNOW that more moist regions have a lower temperature gradient (aka lapse rate) than dry regions, and thus a lower surface temperature. An empirical study I published confirms this from real world temperature and precipatation data. Consider the following:

    A location on the Moon’s surface can cool by over 200 degrees in about two weeks, getting down to around -150°C on the dark side. Now, Antarctica is on the dark side of Earth for over three months in winter, but its temperature remains fairly steady in the vicinity of -50°C to -60°C. But there must be at least some loss of energy via radiation through the atmospheric window to Space. So what replenishes that energy? Clearly the difference between the Moon and the Earth has something to do with the atmosphere. Hence the energy must come from the atmosphere, but wherever the atmosphere is colder than the Antarctic surface, there can be no heat transfer by radiation. There can however be a process which increases entropy in accord with the Second Law of Thermodynamics* and you can read about that process at https://itsnotco2.wordpress.com because that is where this mystery energy does in fact come from. When you understand this process and note the overwhelming evidence supporting its existence then, and only then, will you have a correct understanding as to why the radiative greenhouse is nothing but fiction.

    * Second law of thermodynamics: In a natural thermodynamic process, the sum of the entropies of the interacting thermodynamic systems increases.
