If it looks like a cult and sounds like a cult, it’s a cult.
The new ‘green’ religion is a world where the naïve and gullible seek salvation through the veneration of wind turbines – as if crucifixes – belief in “the science” has supplanted Scripture and ‘scientists’ peddling doomsday tales garner rapt attention, like the fire and brimstone preachers, of old. Those who question “the science” are branded “deniers”, with all the vehemence that was once reserved for Spanish Inquisitors rooting out heretics.
What’s dressed up as “progress” these days seems more and more like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance.
Anyone who thinks that wind turbines and solar panels equate with mortal salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the so-called inevitable ‘transition’ to an all wind and solar powered future.
As in days gone by, the model rests on invent new forms of fear and firmly instilling them. And then following up with the promise of redemption through sacrifice and worship; albeit worshipping wind turbines and solar panels, instead of saints and idols.
The faithful readily subscribe to the myth and the mantras – and merrily provide buckets of cash – all for a chance to get up close and personal with one of these whirling wonders (see above) and to otherwise signal their supreme virtue, to all and sundry.
Prager University poses the the following: Has environmentalism become more than just a good faith effort to protect the Earth? Is it now tantamount to a religion? And if it is, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
PragerU’s latest short documentary, hosted by Will Witt, explores the origins, agenda, and motives of today’s environmental movement. What he finds raises some challenging questions for anyone who sincerely cares about the future of the planet.
Religion of Green
25 September 2020
The folks at Prager U have made a new documentary called the Religion of Green. Hosted by Will Witt. The documentary looks at:
The Superstition section (1:27) briefly discusses renewable energy with Jacki Deason (Texas Public Policy Foundation) and Charles McConnell (US Department of Energy).
Will Witt: There’s a lot of pressure to switch over to renewables. Is that a reasonable solution for our energy needs?
Jacki Deason: We’re forcing taxpayers and rate payers to subsidise, for example, renewable energy, meaning wind and solar, instead of traditional fuels. Well, here’s the truth. To power the state of Texas with just wind or solar, you would need an area five times the size of Harris County, which is Houston, and the surrounding suburbs, if you include the wind farms, the solar farms, and the transmission lines. That’s not going to happen.
Charles McConnell: There’s a projection that there’s a 10X, 20X demand for additional rare earth minerals to meet the kind of expectations for batteries and storage that many of the renewable strategies actually are backstopped by. In places like the US, we’ve actually decided we don’t want to do that kind of mining because it’s not environmentally responsible, et cetera. And actually be able to do the mining, deliver it, and have it be reliable and sustainable. That, in my mind, is magical thinking. We’ve had windmills all the way back to Christ’s era on earth. These are not new.
Here’s the full documentary:
