Passing Gas

 

China’s climate hoax punks willing America – China is financing and building 700 coal plants around the world. Yet the media tells you China is cutting coal use. i.e. – China cuts use of dirty coal by 40 percent .

The media also makes you think China is a green energy hero. Nothing could be further from the truth because China is using massive amounts of water and energy to turn coal into synthetic gas, and they are exporting that know-how around the world. Then they turn around and say, See? We’re burning less coal!

Natural gas is not granola.

Of course the media tell you clean coal technology is dead in America, but it is alive and well in China and all over the world.

Mega Monster Fuck Ups

The Silk Road construction alone will put a fuck into carbon budgets just from concrete, pavement and steel emissions. Watch the folly in this next video as giant mega projects mean giant mega fuck ups. Watch what’s happening in Nigeria. This video has lots of surprises yet still barely scratches the surface.

This next video ignores the pitfalls of hi-tech farming and glosses over the bad stuff. It’s like a robot tindr video for a better future. Humans need not apply. I can’t wait for robot vertical farms.

Do you know what will power all this? Coal gasification. They’ll tell you it’s solar/wind power, that’s not true. It still takes a ton of coal to make 6-12 solar panels, doesn’t include shipping.

Meanwhile Northern Europe is getting 60% of its “renewable energy” by burning wood pellets shipped from around the world. They burn palm oil and soy oil in their diesel cars while we burn corn in ours. Then the WWF leads the way counting Indonesian palm oil plantations as “forests”. China’s pigs eat half the soy grown in South America. China has built gigantic cities in coastal delta areas on The Ring of Fire. Those cities face a future of super storms and floods. They poured more concrete in 3 years than we have in 100. They are building a fleet of floating nuclear power plants. They’re doing this so we can buy cheaper solar panels and smart phones. I’ve been talking about this for years and nothing changes. We are not heroes except in our minds.

On a lighter note, I did find a snake in the bathroom today. It’s okay.
