Bjorn Lomborg claimed on John Stossel's television show last night that money isn't being spent well to combat "global warming":
"The Germans are spending about $110 billion on subsidies for these solar panels," said Lomborg. "The net effect of all those investments will be to postpone global warming by 37 hours by the end of the century."
"All those billions, for 37 hours delay?," asked Stossel.
"Yeah," said Lomborg, "so remember them in [the year] 2100 and say, 'Wow.'"
Stossel clarified, "You believe in global warming and man-made--"
"Global warming is real," said Lomborg, "and it is we need to fix. But we should fix it smartly, and not in a very, very costly way as we're doing it now. Germany is probably spending $660 for every ton of CO2 they're cutting."
Clearly, not enough. They need to step it up and get serious about fixing this problem. Is a quadrillion too much to ask??
No price is too great.
Government subsidies squander capital and lead to poverty. The “Green” movement is weakening the entire EU and eroding Western culture. Its all neo pagan earth worshiping nonsense.
Any time you see a Global Warming proponent who has managed to rise above the average idiot-kook-alarmist stage, one that involves media actually listening to and responding with on a continual basis, you have to realize there is MONEY involved. A hell of a lot of it.
The idea that ANYTHING will delay ANYTHING on a global scale for 37 hours in a world where so-called climatologists can’t even reconcile past truth with model predictions without massive lying and cheating (EA CRU, NASAs Hansen, Michael Mann et al) is patently ridiculous.
As in the US, the money is being spent to buy the votes of fools. Given the vote buying as the primary motive you should easily see that despite the failure of these programs to have any effect whatsoever on the climate they are, in fact, wildly successful.
You need lots of fools. But that has never been a problem.
False. They wasted the money altogether. There is no global warming. It stopped 20 years ago m

In a nutshell or in one sentence the global warming scam on display.
Even if there was such a thing as global warming, it’s doubtful that they are saving any energy. First you have to build the factories to build the panels. Then you have to build the panels. Then you have to truck them to their destination and install them. Then you have to dispose of them in the proper green way. Then you have to install batteries and other equipment in your house in order to make any use of them. Then you have to replace and dispose of the batteries from time to time. . . .
And on and on. By the time you add all that up, it’s doubtful whether you save any energy at all.
-- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades. The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age.

Do it for the chillin’
It could be much much worse...It could have been delayed for only 36 hours. The huge manatewe!!!!!!!!
If it saves the life of one child . . .
Come 2100 the greedy scam scum will have an excuse as to why global warming hasn’t come and done its dastardly deeds. It’s like the boogie man in a fairytale, and the general public of the world can’t grow up to see that fear mongers are telling the tales.
The global warming hoax goes on and on. Would the hoax stop if one particular person spoke out? Who could that person be?
Obviously, the leftists in other countries let their legislators throw money down idiotic black holes, as well. It isn’t just OUR legislators!
Of course, when you are a leftist elitist, spending OPM (Other People’s Money) comes as easily as corruption, sleaze and nannystatism.
Leap of faith. The new secular religion.
It is a money maker in the form of oppressive taxes. Nothing more.
