Global Warming: A $1.5 Trillion Industry

The Climate Change Business Journal has calculated that global warming is now a $1.5 trillion a year industry. The Business Journal’s report is not available for free online, but its findings are reviewed by the Insurance Journal. They are eye-opening, to say the least:

The $1.5 trillion global “climate change industry” grew at between 17 and 24 percent annually from 2005-2008, slowing to between 4 and 6 percent following the recession with the exception of 2011’s inexplicable 15 percent growth, according to Climate Change Business Journal.

The San Diego, Calif.-based publication includes within that industry nine segments and 38 sub-segments. This encompasses sectors like renewables, green building and hybrid vehicles.

One of the most lucrative segments of the global warming money tree is consulting:

That also includes the climate change consulting market, which a recent report by the journal estimates at $1.9 billion worldwide and $890 million in the U.S.

Included in this sub-segment, which the report shows is one of the fastest growing areas of the climate change industry, are environmental consultants and engineers, risk managers, assurance, as well as legal and other professional services.

What is striking about the global warming industry is that its growth is driven more or less entirely by “policymaking,” i.e., government mandates and other policies. This is why “green” businesses contribute so lavishly to the political campaigns of politicians who drink the global warming Kool-aid.

A million Earth's fit inside the Sun

The Sun is 99% of the mass in the Solar system

The solar cycle is the driver of climate not Co2 which is 0.0004 of the atmosphere

global warming is a hoax

Well well well. Always it’s follow the money.

I have thought, so we make the air as pure as snow here, but China and the rest of the world, nope.

Yet, we send so much business to them. Not a word about this.

Shocking Study Reveals Melting Sea Ice Near North Pole … in 1818

{Paragraph's 11 thru 15} I (Justin Haskins) recently had the opportunity, thanks to one of my intrepid readers, to get my hands on the June 1818 issue of The Edinburgh Review, a popular and well-respected academic magazine published between 1802 and 1929 in the United Kingdom.

{Paragraph 12} The magazine featured several very interesting stories about the extreme climate changes scientists of the time had observed. Many scientists, explorers, tradesmen, and statesmen expressed great excitement about the growing number of accounts of sea voyagers who had returned home with stories of clear and navigable bodies of water in the far north traditionally thought to be filled with dangerous sea ice.

{Paragraph 13} The author of the publication’s first chapter {June 1818, The Edinburgh Review} relayed the exciting developments:

{Paragraph 14} “For these two or three years past, the captains of ships … generally concurred in representing the Arctic Sea as of a sudden become almost open and accessible to the adventurous navigator. By the more speculative relators, it has been supposed that the vast icy barrier which, during many ages, had obstructed those forlorn regions, is at last, from some revolution of our globe, broken up and dispersed.”

{Paragraph 15} In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, there was still great interest in the hoped-for discovery of the Northwest Passage, a waterway that could take ships from Europe to Asia without having to travel all the way around South America, so stories of legendary sea captains traveling beyond the 83rd parallel in the Arctic, where they found virtually no sea ice and open waters, captured the imagination.

Now just how many cars & trucks were on the roads in 1818? Never mind, the Lib's will never believe this.

Wouldn’t an “industry” produce or provide something?
