Epstein: "Gore shows us the town of Georgetown, Tex. and its use of 100-per-cent renewable energy. Stories about “100-per-cent renewable” locations like Georgetown, Tex. are not just anecdotal evidence, they are lies. The Texas grid from which Georgetown draws its electricity is comprised of 43.7 per cent natural gas, 28.8 per cent coal, 12 per cent nuclear, and only 15.6 per cent renewable. Using a virtue-signalling gimmick pioneered by Apple, Facebook, and Google, Georgetown pays its state utility to label its grid electricity “renewable” — even though it draws its power from that fossil-fuel heavy Texas grid — while tarring others on the grid as 'non-renewable.'”
Now Democrats are pivoting to climate “science” to justify sweeping government controls over American life.
Like coronavirus, the regulation of carbon dioxide emissions grants politicians enormous power because the greenhouse gas is the byproduct of virtually all daily activity including travel, food production, and construction.
By hyping catastrophic weather events as evidence of warming, the climate establishment hopes to keep the US population in the grip of fear. The Biden administration’s national infrastructure tour, for example, has turned into a climate fear tour as the administration pushes its Green New Deal taking over large sections of the economy.
Tony Heller of RealClimateScience.com: "This warming trend since 1970 does not exist in the thermometer data, so where does it come from?
There has been a large decrease in the number of stations reporting data over the past 30 years. But in the final adjusted data set, they use temperatures for all 1,218 stations regardless of whether or not there is actually any thermometer data.
In other words, they are simply making up data. More than 40% of the data in the final data set is now fabricated.
NOAA US temperature graphs are completely fraudulent, and they are being adjusted upwards to track CO2.
