People have told me that they donít care about global warming, and public opinion polls by Pew Research and others have ranked it dead last. So, what would change the publicís mindset?
Weíre already moving in a direction that your attention level will inevitably increase. All the talk about protecting the environment for future generations is pure hype, because it has been demonstrated that alarmists donít even care about the present one. Their hope is to tax you into oblivion for your carbon consumption.
Environmental groups believe the ideal global population is about 10-20 percent of the present population, according to their own studies, and they are pushing to get there.
If it actually works to help support the present population, they usually object to it. And studies have shown that environmentalists are generally far more destructive of the environment than the general population.
The U.S. desires the European model of regulation ó doubled gasoline and electrical power prices. Restriction of gasoline and coal production, coming restrictions on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas, diversion of 40 percent of the U.S. corn crop to ethanol for fuel (increasing food prices), concentration on wind/solar when both must always be backed-up by conventional power generation, and present discussions to tax the publicís carbon use all point to their disdain for supporting the population. Remember, all life is carbon-based, including you. You exhale lots of carbon dioxide.
The corn crop is critical, because the U.S. is the major global exporter of corn to the hungry. Already there have been food riots globally. And the coal reduction here is resulting in increased coal export, as more than 1,200 new coal-fired power plants are planned globally.
Your grandchildren will be lucky to have a decent future, but not because of global warming.
