The “Energy of the Future”

We’re often hearing from environmentalists how renewable energy is the “energy of the future”. Barack Obama endorses this view. This is despite the fact that the industry can’t seem to survive without public subsidies and government efforts to hamper fossil fuel energy. This is a fantasy. Renewables are only the future because they are willed to be so. No matter how strong the religious fervour towards this technology, their effectiveness remains unchanged.

Renewables may one day become economically viable, but right now we have governments worldwide betting on this outcome. We see rent-seekers like Solyndra treating taxpayer money with contempt and other green companies going down the drain. And in the meantime, nuclear energy is taken completely off the table.


About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
