Renewable Energy Is Just Renewed Scamming


Here is what the renewable energy scam is doing to the economy and what it is doing for the environment.

What it is doing to the economy is destroying it. What it is doing for the environment is nothing.

Here’s what’s happening in the economy. Because electricity prices keep going up people have less money to spend on other goods and services. Because electricity prices have gone up businesses have had to increase their prices and cut their costs where possible resulting in people losing their jobs.

Here’s what’s happening in the environment. Because so much attention has been on the green scams the real problems we face such as overpopulation, deforestation, rubbish in our oceans and ongoing crises such as the Fukushima nuclear disaster are not getting the attention they need.

It doesn’t matter what magical accounting they use or make believe stories they push to make it seem acceptable, the fact is the economy is getting worse. Electricity disconnections for non-payment are on the rise and our power grid is being reduced to third world standards.

It doesn’t matter how scary the green brigade make their stories, the whole renewables deal is still a scam. CO2 is not a pollutant, human output is only a small amount of the annual CO2 output, the climate has always changed and taxes cannot change the climate or the environment.

What’s been happening in the state of South Australia is a sign of things to come for the rest of the country as politicians pursue outrageous renewable energy targets. Prices there are the highest in Australia and their economy is collapsing. The SA electricity network couldn’t deal with an increase of wind and had to shut down and then its cheap infrastructure came apart. Businesses are now looking to conduct their business in other states or offshore where there is reliable and cheaper power.

As reliable power stations are closed we’re going to be left in the dark and not just because of renewable electricity’s unreliability, we also won’t be able to afford to power our homes anymore.

People are told they will have to make more cuts to their spending and change their lifestyle but why should they have to? People should get the benefit of their own money and spend it on what they want to spend it on. Many people have already cut their budgets as much as is possible but the trouble is politicians and green groups are very keen to spend other people’s money and keep devising ways to scam more money from people.

The scammers will try and justify the cost while glossing over the problems they cause with statements like it’s only a couple of dollars a week more or it’s just a 10% increase and it shouldn’t  be an issue and then follow that by saying it’s all for the environment.

Here’s some very basic economics that the scammers deliberately ignore, if someone gets $500 a week and that full amount is earmarked to cover $500 worth of costs then you won’t get a single cent out of them let alone a couple more dollars.

And it’s not for the environment, for one thing the manufacture of wind turbines create more pollution than using them supposedly prevents.

When technologies and products are superseded and made obsolete the new technologies and products are ones that are much more efficient and so much better it makes the preceding technology obsolete. One example is mobile (cell) phones. Modern mobiles are cheap, sleek, have good transmission range, clear reception and can do anything like make videos, stream your favourite programs etc. while the originals only had a few functions and limited range and transmission quality.

Look at televisions. The originals were bulky, had small screens and could only receive transmissions in black and white. Now you can get large and sleek TV’s with multiple functions and high definition picture quality.

Both items and many others are more efficient than their predecessors as well as being cheaper.

The reverse is happening with energy generation as the reliable and steady sources of generation are replaced with inefficient wind turbines and solar which cannot maintain a reliable level of supply and requires massive subsidies and high prices to stay in business.

And that raises another lie of the scammers, they claim renewables are a competitive form of energy. If something requires massive subsidies it is not competitive.

The powers that be don’t care though, they ultimately benefit and will do all they can to make sure they are immune from the destruction of our electricity grid.

The whole deal with renewable energy is a scam. Always has been, always will be.
