Yayyy, air conditioning, heat, electricity, industry, transportation, etc!

Making huge swaths of the Earth civilizable since men dug coal.

    I noticed on the article’s accompanying graph that CO2 emissions from coal are creeping up .
    I believe it’s from all the coal powered wind turbines.

    My favorite wind turbine pic was the one with a helicopter defreezing the turbine. It wasn’t a solar powered helicopter.

    The increase in standard of living is a bug not a feature to the new flagellants of the Church of Gaia.
    Notice that all their ‘solutions’ to the plagues Gaia is inflicting on an imprius world involve a lowered standard of living.

    The Renewable Energy fad is a fun and games narcotic for the feeble minded feel good drones. But like the popular parlor game “Twister” of the 1960s it’ll fade away when the useful idiots attention spans shut down and they turn to other trendy instant gratification producing mental masturbation activities.
