Hundred Percent, Seventy Seventy Seven Percent, Three Hundred Billion Dollars discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory


Brush we're not cutting down the trees and so on we have a fire we have these huge conflagration that nobody can stop again this is nothing to do with two tenths of a degree temperature rise almost it's almost negligible is there a big money in man made climate change issues well it is I think it's one of the factors yes follow the Cambridge over three hundred billion dollars a year right now to try and force a switch to renewables all sorts of other factors we have vice presences to stay ability of companies and deans of sustainability universities weapon viral desk the newspapers we have wind and solar and bio fuel industries and and all these things have become big business now these are the there's nothing wrong with renewable so what's wrong with that okay I'm I'm not necessarily against renewables I just think that we should be subsidizing enforcing the adoption of renewables with the idea we're going to stop the climate from warming of the planet from morning there's no evidence of that we also have some what I would call kind of a severe movements now we have something called electrify everything why don't they simply say those Stephen we're running out of natural resources folks we need renewables it has nothing to do with climate change we just need to be able to save the planet because one day with all these people that are being born on this planet we're going to run out of natural resources we're gonna be up a creek why can't think then it has been an argument the fact is though it's not true is a talk about an outside the green box so called resource depletion isn't happening we have literally because of the Uyghur carbon revolution from fracturing we have centuries at least a couple centuries of oil and gas remaining we also have these methane hydrates the the coastal shelves under the under the ocean where they literally have this ice that is full of natural gas of those estimates are ten times as large as all the gas reserves in the world so there's really no evidence that we're running out of of resources so that argument doesn't work very well either what now what's your take on a hundred U. S. cities that have pledged to be a hundred percent renewable by twenty fifty yeah it's it's it's a big fan of it we have give some extremely sample Saint Louis that's where I am right now but for your right now now is I think like twenty thirty five they want to be on a percent electricity renewable but the state of Missouri gets about seventy seventy seven percent of their power from a coal electrical power in ninety seven percent from non renewable sources Ohio is similar both Cincinnati in Cleveland mayors are city councils of pledge they're going to be a hundred percent renewable Ohio is three percent renewable today of these so the city leaders have absolutely no idea how to do this and what it's going to cost but the evidence we see around the world as it is going to raise energy prices for the residents the big issue too is scientists are warning of a major sea level rise by twenty one hundred and of course they're blaming the carbon dioxide pollution for this they are former vice president Al Gore in in his movie and in his books talked about a twenty foot rice with your twenty one hundred to get the data from Dr James Hansen at at NASA others have predicted big rice's but we have very good data tide gauges inside your tight gauges around the world we have all the world show on average rice of seven or eight inches per century further you can go to a site at NASA and and SO tells us that the oceans have risen a hundred and twenty meters of three hundred ninety feet in the last twenty thousand years and scientists can tell you a natural sea level rise stop the man made sea level rise began so the great news is we're probably going to have to adjust to a seven or eight inch per century rice the the bad news is water ski Manhattan postcards are not going to be in big demand not not gonna happen so yeah any any pull a politician is also you know sort of stop the rise of the seas I think you better get though a little better a little bit of personal follow now is there any companies leading the way to get this thing taken care of where people don't panic and think it's all man made well I'm I'm sorry to say most of the industry has bought into this is Tom tremendous pressure on companies I talk about it now said the green box companies are spending millions of dollars every year on environmental methods or procedures that don't really do anything thing for the environment such as subsidizing purchasing renewables counting the carbon dioxide foot print even buying carbon credits in a lot of other things when I go in it is that the companies I say there's only one place for this activity that's in your public relations department because it doesn't do anything else but they're under terrific pressure even the the the petroleum industry has come out saying that we have a great product everybody wants it but it's causing the climate that to change and it's hurting mankind so what we need to shoot.
