Hillary Clinton, Obama’s top diplomat was told by India to go pound sand. Given the current data, Obama’s green energy ideal is something the Indians will do without. With Europe back pedaling from Kyoto as fast as they can. One can only wonder about the Democrats obsession with green energy and carbon caps.
India on Sunday night rebuffed an appeal by Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, to embrace a low-carbon future in which the two countries would work together to devise new ways of consuming and producing energy.
I guess that whole stay poor so you can be greenjust is not working out for the Indians. Given that India is still suffering from pre-industrial poverty they are just not getting the enviro-whacko vision to go straight to post-industrial poverty. In case you are wondering, post-industrial poverty is where we in the U.S. are heading. Look at Waxman’s Cap and Trade industry killer of a bill.
“Adversely affected employees in oil, coal and other fossil-fuel sector jobs would qualify for a weekly check worth 70 percent of their current salary for up to three years. In addition, they would get $1,500 for job-search assistance and $1,500 for moving expenses from the bill’s ‘climate change worker adjustment assistance’ program, which is expected to cost $4.2 billion from 2011 to 2019.”
According to P. Roff of US News:
Instead of being a the source of millions of new jobs of “green jobs”—as House Democrats are fond of saying over and over again—the provision is a hidden admission that their effort is a job killer, not just a massive new tax on energy.
The Indians and the Chinese are looking to first achieve some post industrial wealth and decadence. This wealth and decadence are what all those nasty dead white people achieved in the past 250 years. It was by their blood sweat and tears that we saw in past 70 years the elimination of starvation and disease in this great land.
If you are wondering what post industrial wealth and decadence looks like, recall the late 20th century United States. We saw the average home size in 1950 to 2005 go from less than 600 sq. ft. to 3000 sq. ft. You know, like the whole McMansion disgustingly large homes of NOVA. Us wealthy hoi polloi have no business being so wealthy. We are the upstarts the current Duke of Wales, Charles Windsor, is so upset about. He claims the world will come to an end in 99 months due to our consumption of energy and resources. This consumption must be drastically curtailed. He then flew off in his private jet.
What are us non-elites thinking? You know, according to Charles and the rest of our betters its our place in life to live in near starvation while toiling in the fields. We are supposed to live in 300 sq. ft. hovels with little heat and absolutely no air conditioning. Nowadays we also bathe everyday, the great masses are supposed to unwashed.
In some places when the industrial age and the associated wealth wants to come to town, the enviro-whackos show up, file suit in the world court and claim the multinational economic offer will destroy the local culture. According to the enviro-whackos the local culture is poverty, that’s their place in life. Read Eco-Imperialism and you will get the point.
The Green movement is about control, not the environment. The data shows that the global temperature index is more a function of solar and volcanic activity than human enterprise. But why let data get in the way of a good ideal? Al Gore is the high priest of carbon credits. He owns the company. He will make a mint. GE- they bring good things to life – is heavily invested in green energy. They also control NBC. Control and greed. These are two of the real drivers behind the enviro-whacko movement. The useful idiots are just window dressing.
