Skeptics Like To Sneer At Green Energy, But Investment Is Soaring

There are plenty of skeptics about the green energy generation - - they like to leave negative remarks on this blog, and will do, again - - but there is data out there showing a surge in green energy investing, and that helps lower air pollution and the political power of oil-rich countries that consider us an enemy.

Even if investment in green energy is soaring, so what? Cap&Trade is dead, that's all the right really wanted to do, kill Cap&trade. The investment in green energy now is nothing like it would have been with C&T. It's still peanuts. And a quick look at how many people plan to buy an electric car in the future shows that green energy will remain peanuts for sometime to come. Cheers.

The carbon credit market is essentially dead

Although carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, it does make sense not to rely on other oil rich countries but the problem is that we are an oil rich country but refuse to utilize our own resource.

Think back on how long we have been indoctrinated into believing that we are running out of oil. 40, 50, 60, years? Why is it that the worlds proven oil reserves have doubled since 1980? It makes sense to not waste oil or any other resource but we don’t even understand the true origin of oil which consistently proves itself to be much more plentiful than we have been taught. This does not mean that resources are not limited (the sun is also a limited resource) but we are not in the crisis stage that popular alarmists state.

and yes, is does make sense to explore alternatives but to abandon proven energy technology due to faith in green ideology is simply foolish.
