environmental hypocrisy uncovered … fossil fools

Fossil fuel’s are less damaging to the environment than renewables. What the Green movement doesn’t tell us, is where their electricity and batteries originate. It doesn’t fit the pocket-lining agenda.

Batteries use Lithium, lead, zinc and other materials. Here is a lithium mine, not unlike an open cut coal mine:

Lead and zinc mines are hazardous, as these minerals are a health hazard. Zinc is the 4th most used metal. Here is an Australian example:

Australia’s largest zinc mine west of Cairns starts closing down …

The pit at Century Mine is nearing the end of its life. It produces zinc, lead and silver. The mine is owned and operated by MMG.

Then we have the rare earth metals required in turbine manufacture, which is disastrous to the environment:

Wind turbine’s disastrous environmental costs.

This is a calamity:

Wind’s ecological trail of destruction extends back to China, which supplies most of the rare earths required in the construction of wind turbines. When we in the West erect a wind turbine, reported an investigative article in the UK’s Daily Mail, we help create “a vast man-made lake of poison in northern China” that, according to locals, withers their crops and kills their animals.

So Greenies, what are you really worried about, this?:

Fracking in WA for gas

Fracking in WA for gas

What’s more, you can not make steel without coal. Or make aluminium with renewables except hydro power. You can not make plastics without fossil fuels. Green anti-frakkers are no more than fossil-fools.

    Greenies of influence are well aware that without mining the only consumables must be made from wool/cotton/wood/plants etc., so their agenda is to use/abuse sustainability & climate change for their socialist revolution. Pity about the masses of Greenie sheeple who can’t see past the false mantra of ‘save the earth.”

      No scam, just spam. New comments will hit the spam pages first, and with so many each day (174 today)
      , often don’t get seen.

        sorry tom, my bad, i am confused china has banned coal! they’re coal contains uranium. when this coal is burned. it spreads uranium poison everywhere killing millions each year. you page reports that metals mined for production of powerful hi tech electric car batteries. cell phone batteries. are a worse source of pollution. in fact unlike coal in china it is not incinerated. it is separated from the soil, and used for car batteries of all sorts, which also in fact, are all recycled endlessly and are poised to end fossil fuel pollution from the automobile. i have heard this ridiculous argument before that batteries are the cause of pollution. nothing could be further from the truth. a used tesla battery scrap value is likely a 1000+. dollars …..would you throw that away? also USA has just outlawed any use of private land for mining coal. the drying up of the black canyon hydro electric dam is the most important wake up call north america is gonna get. keep up the bad behaviour, and humans are done!

    Another truism

    Tom, you may find this of interest:

    I would enjoin the previous comments by Mike Kruper if not for a total disregard of syntax, grammar and inflection which, for me, disqualifies any serious consideration of what he appears to be saying.

    Finally someone does actual costings on Tesla batteries and takes the pie out of the sky. [Amazingly this was published in New Matilda – which is as leftist-green-alarmist as they come].
