So taking out a good share of the grid isn’t that hard?
Sierra Rayne performs a complex economic analysis/comparison on Northeastern Carbon trends. He hit on something.
It seems Sergio Marchionne either didn’t get the memo, or won’t play along. He’s right up there explaining that his company loses $14,000 on each electric 500e they sell
In an otherwise reasonable summary of some proposed major changes being suggested by the NYS Public Service Commission in how electrical utilities and their grids would operate, the reporter adds this unattributed cautionary note:
“Burning natural gas in thousands of locations would make it almost impossible to capture carbon from power plants and pump it underground to avoid worsening climate change.”
So Steyer promises to fund lefty green causes.
This is what his Copenhagen Consensus project is all about .
Too bad people don’t pay attention like Lomborg does, to the Bastiat warming about unintended consequences.
Of course if people die or suffer because of crazy green projects it won’t be counted, since official counts are controlled by the arrogant elites who know how to cheat.
Projected increases in displacement or deaths due to warming, no warming, no deaths? Well retool and ignore the failed predictions.
One can do that if in control of public policy and the media academic bully boy complex.
This Figueres is an excellent example of often wrong, never in doubt. She wants to control fossil fuel reserves?
John Christy, Boss of the Weather and Satellite studies program at Huntsville, says it’s not that good.
The Tesla electric car is a darling of the Rich and Yuppie enviro crowd who want to believe it’s a “green” vehicle and want to show off their tree hugging credentials. Of course the truth ain’t quite that simple, but that’s a discussion for another day.
That being said, it seems to have run afoul of political business as usual in… New Jersey. Continue reading
Paul Driessen writes a regular column for Townhall, and is an ally of those who propose sensible policy on energy and environment issues. He and I agree with few quibbles.
He is a spokesperson and writer for Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) that pushes back on fanatic enviros with a particular emphasis on the negative impact of environmentalist nonsense on the welfare of 3rd World people.

WaPo: Europe ‘a green-energy basket case’, ‘dysfunctional’, Kyoto ‘not designed properly’ — Flashback to Dec. 1997: WaPo disses Kyoto

There is much activity in the UN climate arena at the moment, as they push for yet another “Global Agreement on Climate Change”
At the moment, UNFCC executive secretary, Christina Figueres is boasting that they have an agreement to come to an agreement by 2015. Whilst it is to be hoped that this agreement to agree goes the way of previous ones, it highlights that they haven’t gone away and are determined to keep pressing on, no matter that the AGW paradigm is collapsing.
“Carbon trading and clean energy policies fail because costs exceed benefits.” Continue reading
