It is common for environmentalist anthropogenic global warming promoters to accuse “deniers” of being paid off by oil companies. In spite of decades of such accusations they have produced no evidence, witnesses or documents. In private money alone environmental groups outspend “deniers.” “Deniers” raise $46 million annually for 91 “think tanks,” according to Forbes analysts. That was one-sixth of Greenpeace’ 2011 budget of $260 million, and they are only one of many environmental groups. There is big money in pushing panic over a gas labeled an insignificant “trace gas” in air by the only real atmospheric scientists, meteorologists.
Al Gore, former Vice President, increased his net worth from $700,000 in 2000 to $175 million by 2015. Gore and the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management made $218 million in profits between 2008 AD and 2011 AD from a carbon trading company they co-founded. Albert Gore, Jr. has a remarkable record of investing in companies just before they got multi-million Dollar grants. Now how could that happen?
Elon Musk has never made a dime of profit, but has a net worth in excess of one billion Dollars that have obviously come from the $5 billion in Federal loan guarantees he got in return for a $110,000 contribution to the Obama 2008 Presidential campaign.
In 2014, Musk got another $1.4 billion from Nevada taxpayers to build a “gigafactory” for his electric car company Tesla Motors. Musk’s SolarCity also got a large stipend for a Nevada move. None of Tesla’s or SolarCity’s products are economically competitive or viable. Solar energy plants and electric cars cost up to 20 times as much as those using petroleum for operation.
Billionaire Warren Buffett invested heavily in electric utilities, including NV Energy and has taken advantage of subsidized “green” energy while investing $30 billion in it.
Indian billionaire Vinod Khosla poured over a billion Dollars of his and his government’s money, into 50 green energy startups. He has had some of green tech’s most spectacular failures. Despite repeated flops, he is still able to pour other people’s money into green energy investing in ethanol, which is heavily dependent on federal mandates requiring gasoline sold in the U.S. contain 15% ethanol. Anything above that and the engines gag.
Ethanol tax credits are estimated to have cost the federal government up to $40 billion between 1978 and 2012 and it is a poor motor fuel that attracts water from the atmosphere and if stored for a few months damages engines. Khosla’s KiOR ethanol company went bankrupt in 2014 costing the state of Mississippi $75 million for Khosla’s $500 million factory to employ 1,000 Mississippians. Sorry about that…
Film director James Cameron profited immensely from environmentalism claiming “We need to mobilize like we did in World War II to fight global warming. When asked about scientists skeptical of global warming he said, “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads. Anybody that is a global-warming denier at this point in time has got their head so deeply up their ass I’m not sure they could hear me.” Meanwhile the environmental panic film “Avatar” netted Cameron over $650 million, making him one of the richest directors of all time with an estimated net worth of $700 million for a film promoting a false issue.
It is fitting our last example is a man who has made his millions in fiction as that is the truth of the matter. The man who created this false issue in which a trace gas in the atmosphere is deemed capable of controlling it when that is easily shown to be false, but to cover their crimes the promoters of this fraud have committed an even larger crime by teaching false science to our young people. They talk about molecular “forcing” as if there were a hierarchy of molecules with one telling another when to change state! Intelligent atoms? Tiny pilots?
In his personal presentations the father of anthropogenic global warming, Jim Hansen claims, “Man-made CO2 stays in the air 1,000 years!” contrary to the Wholer Principle that all molecules of one kind, regardless source, are the same.
He also ignores the Le Chatelier Principle and instead mentions the Clausius-Claperon equation as it is in Calculus and impresses 99% of the population who know nothing of it, but are impressed with the integrands, sigma signs, deltas and other such Calculus notations. The equation actually has no bearing on the atmosphere and is notoriously in error most of the time and often patched. The most famous of which is named “Antoine.”
The Federal Government has spent about $1 trillion for government grants to promote “global warming,” now “climate change” since the 18 year cooling cycle got under way. They have kept thousands of science Ph.D.s employed with this fraud in hopes of building more and bigger bureaus in their never-ending quest for power over us. The ran “war” and “promoting democracy” in the ground so they have to come up with a new scam. Money is green.Tags: climate change Global Warming
