Enhance Insurance policies That Are Already Shedding Jobs and Power Payments Will Soar – Watts Up With That?

Just hours after an inauguration, the order is given to stop the Keystone pipeline and re-join the Paris Agreement. This is just an attempt to extort money from countries like the US and give other volunteer countries like China an opportunity to set a target for accession to pay in a decade or more or never. The US has the cleanest air in the world thanks to natural gas, while the green countries use coal to keep the lights on and have poorer air quality. The Paris Agreement is just another left wealth transfer program.

We are told that major changes to our energy policy are needed to move from carbon-based fossil fuels to wind and sun to protect the planet from carbon pollution and the catastrophic climate change that results. We are told that because the sun and wind are free, green energy will save us money, and that removing carbon dioxide from the air will save lives. Any of these claims can easily be proven wrong by real world examples. The science is seriously flawed, and the guidelines produce exactly the opposite, costly, and even dangerous results. Many in the oil sector are already losing their jobs. Biden suggests that they should consider how to program. Kerry suggests building solar panels in hopes you forgot about Solyndra and dozens of other bankrupt bankruptcies when Obama tried. The media has hyped major natural events and changes, tracing them back to record warming claims made by the activist segment in the once honest universities and professional societies, as well as in the no longer trustworthy climate groups of NOAA and NASA, and too many in the public who believe it is real.

The link, however, cannot be trusted. What is being ignored is the lack of long-term global temperature data to make a reasonable assessment. Data prior to the 1980s was mostly in the US and Europe, as well as parts of Australia, and very little data was in the oceans, which cover 71% of the world.

The first attempts to assess global trends recognized that data was a problem and analysis was limited to land areas in the northern hemisphere (mainly the US and parts of Europe). It showed a strong warming and then a corresponding cooling trend from the 1880s to the 1970s.

The number of stations increased in the 20th century, although they were increasingly located in urban areas or nearby airports that were exposed to local contamination of the urban heat island.

You can see in the US high density dataset with the longest record that temperatures changed in the same direction with CO2 only 40% of the time.

After the 1980s, satellites began tracking ocean surface temperatures when the clouds allowed, and later, after 2000, a network of global buoys provided real-time accurate ocean temperature. It was the first time we could claim true global coverage, but other problems developed and models were incorporated. When you combine different data with models, there is a possibility of mischief. We discussed the global data problems here and a long time ago here.

A strict peer-review analysis did not show that the steadily increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations had a statistically significant influence on one of the 13 critically important temperature time series.

The climate changes in multidecadal and longer cycles related to the sun and the oceans and influenced by volcanism. Claims that extreme weather conditions increase as the earth warms can be easily refuted using real world data and natural factors, as we have done here.

One of the biggest threats to our country’s economy will be skyrocketing energy costs and further job losses, with the economy already being hit by shutdowns and COVID, as well as radical unrest related to small business failures and now executive orders. In this country there is the first preview of it in the states with early commitments for green energy and CO2 reduction or hidden taxes. California is the best-known example, but the northeast (red on the table) with the regional greenhouse gas initiative has by far the highest electricity prices.

Worldwide, the average electricity prices were lowest in our countries, with the heavily invested green countries being up to five times higher. Renewable states are subject to power outages and blackouts (California leads the states as power outages occur when there is a threat of forest fires). Global blackouts and blackouts are common because wind and sun are not reliable. The high cost of electricity is driving the industry to countries like China and India where the costs are low because they use coal, reliable and cheap.

You may recall that in 2010, economist Gabriel Calzada, Associate Professor of Economics at King Juan Carlos University in Spain estimated that every green job created cost Spain $ 774,000 in subsidies. However, this resulted in a loss of 2.2 real jobs. Only 1 in 10 green jobs was permanent. Industry left Spain and unemployment rose to 27.5%. In Italy 3.4 real jobs were lost.

Energy costs are not limited to electricity alone, as the elimination of fossil fuels would lead to a forced switch to electric cars, which further increases the demand for electricity. Obama had gasoline prices as high as $ 5 and predicted within two years that everyone would drive electric cars, with his administration forecasting $ 8 per gasoline. Thanks to fracking and forced COVID labor at home in 2020, gas prices fell to $ 2 or less during President Trump’s tenure when we finally achieved true energy independence. But that will soon go away.

Many “green” countries have been forced to slow or even stop the transition to green and build coal-fired power plants to provide energy when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing.

When the power goes out, people are exposed to the danger of winter cold. The danger associated with “heat kills” misdirection is that cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather. This is the result of an international study that analyzed over 74 million deaths in 384 locations in 13 countries. The results were published in the Lancet. Many households are said to be in “energy poverty” (25% Great Britain, 15% Germany). The elderly are forced to “choose between heating and eating” when they are at home in their coats and sweaters.

Canada, US and UK Winter mortality is very real.

It is very clear that the people who are hurt the most can least afford it. Households with incomes less than $ 20,000 / year spend over 40% of their income on energy.

The Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute concludes that “a fracking ban in the United States would be catastrophic to our economy.”

“Our analysis shows that such a ban would cut 19 million jobs and cut US gross domestic product (GDP) by $ 7.1 trillion between 2021 and 2025. The loss of jobs in large power producing countries would be immediate and serious. More than three million jobs would be lost in Texas alone. Local, state, and federal tax revenues would decrease by nearly $ 1.9 trillion in total as the ban cuts off a major source of funding for schools, first responders, infrastructure, and other key public services.

Energy prices would also skyrocket under a fracking ban. Natural gas prices would rise by 324 percent and the energy costs of private households would more than quadruple. By 2025, drivers would pay twice as much ($ 5 / gallon +) at the pump. “

In recent years, the average household has grown by an average of $ 4,500 per family per year thanks to lower taxes, low unemployment, and cheap energy. Now the cost of the new policy will rise due to increases in electricity, heating fuel and gasoline – families will see losses of up to $ 10,000 / year by 2024. Working from home would partially limit this for the immediate future, but it is clear that the forced switch to green energy comes at an enormous price. This applies even before we consider the enormous material costs for building turbines and solar parks. It was even suggested by a Biden agent that the wind and solar systems be built in the country’s beautiful national parks.

I have influential friends and leaders in many countries on five continents where the greens have gone wild. They envied our country and hoped that their countries would recognize and reconsider our advantage and adopt our approach instead. They are shocked that our country did not realize how good we were. A friend wrote on another page: “… We are on the brink. A Biden regime will mean the end of freedom. Europe and Canada have already fallen far on this “poverty road to Venezuela”. When America falls, there is no place to run to. “
