LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: ‘Green virus’ on a rising curve
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The great green leap backwards
The green virus is on a rising curve in the Anglo-sphere.
Boris, Biden, Kerry, Trudeau, Arden and Australia’s Morrison are all competing to be the first to destroy all industries reliant on coal, cattle, petrol and diesel.
Hydrogen, solar, wind, pumped hydro, bio-fuels, carbon cemeteries and batteries are hyped everywhere, especially in academia, Hollywood, most media and the bureaucracies.
Big business is widely supportive – they see big profits in supplying metals for this green revolution and mining more coal to power carbon capture plants.
The forlorn hope is that if we spend enough money on green indulgence payments it will end floods, fires, droughts, cyclones and “super-storms”.
These green shackles will certainly cool the economy, but we should hope they do not cool the climate.
When natural cyclic cooling sends Arctic ice sheets marching south again, and Chicago, Moscow, Berlin and London are threatened, people living near a nuclear power station or an operating coal mine will be the lucky ones.
And no one will waste food crops to produce biodiesel.
We cannot afford to fight the COVID virus and the green virus at the same time.
Without more reliable energy like nuclear power or massive hydro-electric schemes, this green war on hydrocarbons must bring shortages and rationing.
Still nights followed by windless cloudy days will see whole cities or states blacked out, electric vehicles stranded, old people shivering and panic buying in supermarkets.
The 2016 Paris Climate Agreement was history’s longest suicide note.

KR. Why I ask do the media at this time of year have to bore us to death with rehashing everthing that has happened during the year. We all lived through the year and know what happened. We don’t need to have it all brought back up. Media’s job is to give us the news as it is happening now!!!
