Two interesting articles (among others) concerning a push for renewable energy:

Michael Bloomberg Decides Against Presidential Run in 2020:

Michael Bloomberg Decides Against Presidential Run in 2020

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he won’t run for president in 2020, removing a prominent name from an already crowded field of candidates looking to challenge Donald Trump.

Bloomberg, 77, said while he believes he would beat Trump in a general election, he’s “clear-eyed” about how difficult it would be to win the Democratic nomination. He said it would be better to spend the next two years putting resources into his initiatives such as helping the country transition to renewable energy and addressing gun violence.

Republicans Who Couldn't Beat Climate Debate Now Seek to Join It

After years of sowing doubt, some are seeking new strategy

‘It’s just not worth the fight anymore,’ one lawmaker says

Representative John Shimkus once issued a forceful rejection of climate science at a congressional hearing, invoking the Bible and declaring that “Earth will end only when God declares it’s time to be over.”

Last month, in a turnabout, the Illinois Republican signed onto a letter with the top Republican of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that said “prudent steps should be taken to address current and future climate risks.”

“It’s just not worth the fight anymore,” Shimkus said in an interview when asked about his changing stance on climate change. “Let’s just see what we can do to address it and not hurt the economy.”

Shimkus is among a number of Republicans who -- after years of sowing doubt about climate change or ignoring it altogether -- are scrambling to confront the science they once rejected. They are holding hearings on the issue, beginning with one Tuesday. And they have pledged to invest in technologies to mitigate its impact and are openly talking about the need for taking action.

Not worth the fight? What in blue blazes is he thinking?! Putting a big hurt on the economy IS what it's all about. Renewable energy is nice, but it's only a small part of the extreme Left's radical de-growth agenda.

Necessity of de-construction is the mother of re-invention - Bottom line? You can't save the planet AND make a proper socialist utopia in a dozen years or less without breaking all the eggs. SMASH CAPITALISM!

GREEN JIHAD

Post by Riddick » 03-07-2019 01:35 AM

Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore Rips AOC Over Her Terrible Green New Deal
@AOC
Pompous little twit. You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. You would bring about mass death.
— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) March 3, 2019

Isn't @AOC a bit young to talk about WW2? It was Hell & more than 60 million died. It's her @GND that would be worse than WW2. Imagine no fuel for cars, trucks, tractors, combines, harvesters, power-plants, ships, aircraft, etc. Transport of people & goods would grind to a halt. https://t.co/nXhdlK4Tsa
— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) March 4, 2019

The "greens" and @AOC @GND are just as much against natural gas as they are against oil and coal. They just play them off against each other. Make no mistake, these people are going for the jugular of civilization. It is a green jihad with no compromise. https://t.co/5oTob4PCqr

Moore, a skeptic of "global warming" and "climate change," has distanced himself from extreme environmentalism over the years. He has a PhD in Ecology and refers to himself as "The Sensible Environmentalist" who believes in "science & logic, not sensation & fear."
Fossil fuels are of life-origin & organic, as in the scientific meaning, organic chemistry, the chemistry of carbon. They were made with 100% solar energy. When burned the main products are H2O and CO2, the 2 most important ingredients of all life. So people, stop dissing them. https://t.co/3h2yLIUek6
— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) March 4, 2019

Yes, the Paris "Accord" is a total sham. China, India and Russia, 40% of global population, ignore it, along with most other countries. The USA is at least honest in pulling out of this fake deal. Fossil fuels are >80% of the energy supply to run the country, and the world. https://t.co/hjDWTtPwv6
— Patrick Moore (@EcoSenseNow) March 4, 2019
The Green New Deal, which requires an elimination of all fossil fuels, airplane travel and meat consumption, would cost the United States $93 trillion.
