(strange first post for a new member
, who joined a cruisers forum to learn about sailboats ...but I couldn't resist after stumbling on this thread
I agree with the article. IF global warming is caused by man, it won't be an issue 100 years from now. Unless we build all the bureaucracies and government
the climate change folks want to build ...then the problem will linger.
Once people are making a living fighting climate change you'll never get rid of it. Like all government
and special interest groups do now, they'll just perpetuate their existence by creating issues, and inciting emotion.
Government and government action groups are filled with people whose income
depends on a steady stream of problems and fears to justify stealing other people's money
. Many of these "professional" bureaucrats can't really do anything else. They certainly don't want to enter the free-market, and have to actually provide value. They don't want their incomes and benefits to come from voluntary exchange, and be subject to the harsh realities of the free-market.
Then there are those that I actually think might have a more malevolent intent. They want to use climate change to redistribute wealth, and get paid to manage society on a full time basis. They're central planners.
In 20 years electric
cars will start to take over the roadways. Reducing our dependency on oil. Within 50 years we'll have workable fusion reactors, that will make electricity unimaginably cheap
. We'll also have cheap fuel cell
technology, and cheap and super efficient solar
cells. If we could overcome people's irrational fears we have the ability to build very safe and efficient fission reactors now.
In less than 30 or so years it will be apparent to everyone that fossil fuels are on the way out.
We can't let them build a government, or a bureaucratic and regulatory apparatus for global warming. If we do then global warming will be a problem for generations to come.
