Wind and Solar to Reduce CO2 is a Fraud – Why?
We keep being told we are making great progress in weaning ourselves from oil, coal, nuclear and natural gas. And in a discussion about how great wind and solar is, the supporters keep throwing around the 17% to 19% figure. They claim that is great progress. So just where does that 17% come from? Better yet, the question should be, how much of that 17% is just from solar and wind? They always leave that part out. The answer is 3%. What? Over the past 45 years, we now only get 3% of our entire energy use in this country from solar and wind? Absolutely. Most of the 17% comes from electric power generated by the damming of our lakes and rivers. But those sources have been around for well over 40 years. So, including those numbers in the renewable increase since 1970 is a lie. Wind and solar cannot compete with oil, coal, natural gas, nuclear and dams. If solar and wind were so great and economical, the private sector would have exploded with it by now. It is just not cost effective in a country that is going deeper and deeper in debt. Let’s do a per capita on that! We are now at 18 trillion dollars in debt, a lot of which is owed to the Chinese. To pay that off, each individual in this country would have to come up with around $60,000. But you wife living at home and your two children do not earn money, you do. So actually, in a family of 4 where only the husband works, he is going to need about $240,000. That amount per family? OMG. In order to pay that off in 10 years, the government would have to tax that family an extra 24,000 a year. The average wage of an individual in this country is about $46,000. If both spouses are working, that comes to $92,000 a year in income. My tax bill now is about 12-15,000 a year already. If I add 24,000 to my current tax bill, my federal tax liability alone would be close to $40,000. Then I would need to add all the other taxes like state, local and sales taxes, fees and property tax, gas taxes, phone taxes, taxes on electricity use and taxes on food. Paying extra for CO2 emissions is really not in the cards at all for me. What about you?
I didn’t think so.
