People Are Just Bored Of The Global Warming Scam
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The scary stories of environmental holocaust caused by an inert gas essential to life and belief in the Church of Climatology have dropped off the public’s radar if the indicators of poll results, lack of media coverage, governments extricating themselves from green eco financial suicide pacts and policy makers in most countries dropping the so called Global Warming agenda. The notable exception being Julia Gillard in Australia breaking an election pledge not to introduce a Cap n Trade bill, who is now under attack from all sides as Gillard battles to destroy Australia to save just 0.01% of global CO2 emissions.
The problem for the warming alarmists is the science was too settled and they cried wolf one time too many:
Public opinion is the crucial factor that determines whether policy makers advance or abandon contentious policies. Surveys in the United Kingdom and other European nations reveal that the levels of concern about global warming have been falling steadily in recent years. Media coverage of climate change has dropped sharply.
The public’s concern about global warming as a pressing problem is in marked decline not least because of the growing realisation that governments and the international community are ignoring the advice of climate campaigners. Instead, most policy makers around the world refuse to accept any decisions that are likely to harm national interests and economic competitiveness.
They are assisted in this policy of benign neglect by a public that has largely become habituated to false alarms and is happy to ignore other claims of environmental catastrophe that are today widely disregarded or seen as scare tactics.
The never ending fear stories of vanishing polar ice caps and Arctic sea ice, Glaciergate, science based on propaganda documents from the WWF, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace and the joke that is the IPCC; even the UN is embarrassed by the its on Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Around Europe, governments are reneging on guaranteed subsidies and feed-in tariffs for renewables. Thousands of solar investors face bankruptcy. Government guarantees are no longer safe – this will make green investments ever dicier. The economic climate for renewable energy subsidies has cooled sharply due to the recession, the financial crisis and not least the global shale gas revolution which is beginning to restrain investment in low-carbon energy projects. The new gas glut is making renewables and nuclear increasingly uncompetitive. The International Energy Agency estimates that there is 250 years’ worth of unconventional gas available to the global market. In short, there is no shortage of cheap and abundant energy, but a dead end of conventional energy politics.
Neither governments nor industries are likely to commit large sums of money to promote alternatives that are three, four or five times more expensive. There is now a growing risk that Europe’s green energy strategy will undermine the economic recovery and governments’ attempts of selling it to an increasingly hostile public.
There is no shortage of oil and gas as the ecomentalists would have us believe, instead they would rather people and business pay 4 -5 times the cost of energy so the self appointed can impose their vision about how we should live.
These are the people who predicted in 2000 that snow would be a thing of the past by 2010 and the planet was heating up uncontrollably, in the same 10 year the period global temperatures rose just 0.2C, not suprising really that people have lost faith in the biggest orchestrated scam of all time.
