renewable energy causes poverty …

Correlation is causation? No, not always, but here, the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere matches the decline in poverty very well.

For the world’s final push to eliminate third world poverty, the agenda of the left to stop, and even reduce atmospheric CO2, will condemn them to eternal poverty. Stalin and Mao would be proud. They must be stopped.

Eric Worrall tells the story:

Impoverished British Family in London 1800s Government idiocy

1800s Poverty Diseases, Malnutrition Surge in Green Britain

Guest essay by Eric Worrall Falling living standards are contributing to a shocking surge in malnutrition, and diseases which were prevalent in the 1800s. My question – how much of this hardship is due to the skyrocketing cost of Britain’s green energy disaster? According to the Independent; Malnutrition and ‘Victorian’ diseases soaring in England is ‘due to food poverty and cuts’

Yeah, sure, with record over-production of food crops, low oil prices etc. Eric:

The article in the Independent carefully avoids mentioning the cost of energy, but you don’t have to look far for evidence that electricity prices are placing a lot of stress on British household budgets. Quite apart from devastating job losses which occur when energy intensive industries are forced to close, because they can’t compete with lower energy costs in other countries, Eurostat reports that electricity costs have surged from £0.121 / kWh in 2010, to £0.155 / kWh in 2015 (USD $0.23 / kWh), a rise of 28%.

The deserts? Greening madly:

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world’s arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.

The CSIRO are now telling us something we already know. Here we were, more than 3 years ago. What’s kept them? Oh, an inconvenient agenda, and discovery of a new element, governmentium!

I will stick to coal and gas. emissions can be clean, and are great for greening the planet.

    Tom my comment HERE at Steven Goddards, about Energy, Invention and Agriculture supports the energy vs poverty idea.

    Unless you go to nuclear, the only real choices are fossil fuels, animal or slave. Wind and solar are niche only. Good for pumping water or grinding grain.

    Also without a reliable high energy supply you can not run the blast furnaces to produce the wind turbines and solar panels or even the steel plow blades, hoes and shovels needed for agriculture.

    The steam engine’s first use was to remove water from mines. Again solar and wind, being intermittent are unsuitable. I really wish the econuts would read some real history.

      Good points, Gail, thanks for the comment. It’s hard though to show those who don’t want to know, their ideology has them blinded. They are quite happy to keep so many in the third world in poverty, so they can bleat about the injustices we deliver to them.

        Now that same third world poverty is about to be visited upon them and us.

        I just did a bit of research on the closure of coal and nuclear plants in the USA and the replacement.

        Industrial Info Resources gives a current projects (renewable) as 21,500 future capital and maintenance projects valued at $2.97 trillion.”
        and a total: “Our Power Industry Database provides information on more than 39,600 operational and pre-commissioned plants, 33,500 active projects with a combined value of $6.30 trillion.
        So ~$3 trillion are non renewable and ~$3 trillion are renewable.
