    Given that there is no credible evidence to support the Greens hypothesis that human activity is causing global warming and much evidence to support the hypothesis that it is a Great Big Green Con in pursuit of their agenda to de-industrialise the world, then we should be praising as heroes those who are standing up to the Greens’ anti-science and anti-prosperity agenda.

      You forget, Rick, this is a site run by academics who know better than us great unwashed.

        So, why are you here? George Will, Cal Thomas, Rush and others would be delighted to have your undivided attention.

    “Green dreams are running headlong into harsh economic realities in Brussels next week.”

    Everywhere except here. As soon as the election is past, Doofus is going to unleash EPA to destroy what’s left of the coal industry and the oil and gas industries in America. Facts and reason have no meaning to that cretin and his puppet masters.

    “Global Warming” is BS, and all the greens know this or they would be pushing for carbon dioxide free nuclear energy. It’s said that environmentalists are watermelons, green on the outside and red in the middle. So what they are really after is to destroy capitalist civilization, and have a decimated human population living in squalor in caves.

    The biggest problem with this accord is that ultimately, renewable energy is a pipe dream. Hydroelectric is great, except all the good places to dam up have already been done. Solar is, at best a 50% proposition, and wind power is intermittent. Now the USA, with vast amounts of ‘fly-over’ country could have wind co-exist with corn fields. Europe has no such luxury.
    The transmission of power from windy/sunny places to where it is needed is problematical, and riddled with inefficiencies. If we had room-temperature superconductors it would be workable, otherwise less so. But such technology, along with some of the technologies already in use for renewable power also have environmental concerns that open the door for unintended consequences.
    If eastern Europe is balking at the draconian measures required to reduce CO2, how can it possibly be operated in India and China, along with the rest of the developing world?
