LIVE AT NOON CDT: Are we abandoning the next generation?

It’s no secret that renewable energy is nowhere near as reliable as traditional forms of energy. When the wind doesn’t blow or sun doesn’t shine, the lights turn off. Californians deal with rolling blackouts regularly. Texans lost power during a record breaking winter storm, costing lives.

Are global leaders abandoning the next generation in favor of virtue signaling how green they are? Or, is reality beginning to set in?

Andy Singer, Anthony Watts, H. Sterling Burnett, and Linnea Lueken discuss recent events regarding the use of renewables in today’s episode of Climate Change Roundtable.

You are the carbon they want to reduce.

Yeah, they think that they can abort the baby, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants, and have her, too. A wicked solution, a human rite, performed for social, redistributive, clinical, and fair weather (e.g. climate stasis) causes. I think that they are playing with a double-edged scalpel, but time will tell if there is a consensus.

Even when the wind does blow … they turn off the electricity anyway.
Three to four day deliberate blackouts for regions of Oregon today, because of 35mph wind.

You’re telling me! I got caught in that and I’m still mad enough to spit! They’re going to start shutting off our electricity every time there’s a mild wind and warm temps??? In the name of FIRE PREVENTION????

Messes with refrigerator, freezer, and ice maker. Ruined food. All the clocks in the house. I have to go out and fight with the garage door in order to override the automatic door opener, cuz I have no phones, and that’s the only way I can go anywhere or get help if I need it is by car. God have mercy on my soul if I have a serious medical emergency. Not to mention the crashing boredom of not having any TV or computer. These people need a new plan .. and PRONTO!

Sorry if I spit on you during my tantrum!

Basic questions: Do they teach unreliability in green textbooks for kids and do they discuss the dreaded “c” word for cost? That’s not even getting to the status of national debt and its dependence on ever rising economic and tax growth to fund it. Do they know that slowing output and consumption growth for the planet is not an option financially?

The goal is socialism (a kinder and gentler version of Venezuela, because, magic). Runaway spending will eventually eliminate everyone’s savings (the Great Reset), forcing government dependence.

Already, we’re seeing a demand for government control of energy companies. As more of them will fail this winter in the EU/UK, the government will step in and increase taxes in lieu of unaffordable energy bills. Other industries will soon follow, because once you destroy the energy market, who can afford to operate an independent factory or even a grocery store?

They envision this gentle world with a benevolent government that runs everything. No need for money – take according to need (but please don’t burn down the Target as you’re leaving), give according to ability. It’s like Star Trek DS9 – some even tolerate the economically aware Ferengi, though today’s college kids would like to drive them into the sea.

The magical Trotsky “kinder & gentler” version of socialism was the
first one I had been told was the road to Utopia. You remember
Trotsky, the guy who didn’t resign in protest after the cold-blooded
murder of the Romanovs or after Vlad had 2M opponents murdered.
Yeah, that Trotsky!

“They envision this gentle world with a benevolent government that runs everything.”


I somehow have my doubts that a govt which runs everything is going to be benevolent. Think North Korea.

When the wind blows out of range, the sun shines at glancing angles, the energy is limited and rationed. Unfortunately, “our Posterity”, the “next Generation”, is not protected under secular ethical mores.

Not just abandoning – destroying them from the very instant the catch their first breath.

Tell me this is not true. Please.
Should you (while wearing your Girl Hat on here), should you deliver a baby by caesarian section, as is the modern way, in the US today, this happens:

  • You, the mother, is taken away to a separate room in order to ‘recover’
  • Your baby then has antibiotic rubbed into its eyes
  • It is given a huuuuge injection of Vitamin K (because the cord is cut far too quickly and it would bleed otherwise)
  • It is vaccinated with a solution containing water-soluble Aluminium, against a sexually transmitted disease. (Just what!!!!)
  • It given its first feed. Not mother’s milk but a grotesque mixture containing High Fructose Corn Syrup – THE most addictive and destructive substance on this Earth

Of course during this ‘procedure’, mother and baby are separated at The Very Time when they should be closest and making that massively important mother/baby bond. The one that should last for a lifetime – if it’s made properly at the start. ##

I really don’t believe anyone would inflict that on any other animal and if they did, Lord help me if I caught them at it (Without very good medical reason)

## I know mother/baby bond from assisting with calving cows. The bond formation is facilitated if not actually the result of the huge flood of Oxytocin hormone that is released during the birth process.
From experience, that hormone evaporates away inside 30 minutes, an hour tops.

You want socially dysfunctional children growing into adults, similarly afflicted
(Hello Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg not very least)
You want endlessly anxious and depressed womenfolk who resort to eating Comfort Food forever more and destroying themselves??

Easy, you treat them like that at the most important moment of their lives.

Please tell me its not true but, The Evidence is stacked against you – just look at Climate Science for starters.

Not only next generation. I fear for my husband he is a heart failure patient with a sleep aponea condition. He forgets to breathe, his defibulator fires off and keeps him alive after his heartbeat reaches 200BPM due to lack of oxygen in his system. What am I going to do when we have no power. I am considering getting a small generator with an auto start so we can guarantee that night time power supply.

The responsibility of every generation is to leave the planet better than they found it. How is the the push to green energy going to do that? Just the compete depletion of the major resources to build batteries should be enough to stop this agenda, but it won’t and when we have run out of the minerals like copper, lithium, vanadium, zinc, graphite, cobalt etc in a single generation because of our pursuit of net zero. What have we actually leave the next generation?

Are we abandoning the next generation?

We are abandoning OUR generation.
