Since I am snowed in today, I’ve taken the opportunity to catch up on some of my favorite blogs, one of which is the Manhattan Contrarian.
Francis Menton, in his post “Will Somebody Actually Start A Serious “Climate” Emissions-Reduction Program In 2019?” writes that while the U.S. debates a “Green New Deal” to ban fossil fuels, one country (or continent) after another is giving up on so-called “renewables” and carbon taxes and even the whole idea of emissions reductions, and going instead for some good old reliable coal: China, India, Africa, Japan, Australia, even Canada and Germany. And that doesn’t include the new Energy Plan from Poland, presented at the close of 2018, which promises to scrap all wind turbines by 2035.
It is highly recommended reading. Good stuff, as always!
