This video is 12 minutes. I invite anyone interested in seeing overprivileged whelps get a whatfer to view it. In it, Benny Peiser (cv below) is in a debate sponsored by Cambridge, and only his side is presented here. I thought it exceptional because he openly accuses the Cambridge greens of smugness, mentions how they jet about while denying access to fossil fuels to Africans, who desperately want to develop. He blames millions of deaths on green policies.
I cannot help but think that if this were in the U.S. Peiser would be shouted down, subjected to mass walkouts, probably denied a forum at all. In other talks, he describes the decline of the 28 countries in the European Union (soon to be 27 he hopes), and pins the blame squarely on green energy policies. The wealthiest country in the EU, Germany, now has 50 million [see comment below … I misstated his message] people who suffer from energy poverty, so expensive is the electricity from their renewable grid. While that is bad by itself, he also notes that companies that depend on cheap energy are dis-investing, or not investing at all. The result is economic decline.
He also says that no country outside of the EU suffers such stupid leadership as to really follow the green agenda. They pay lip service only. China, the world’s leading economy now, is building a couple of new coal-fired power plants a week. All they need do at this point is modernize, install scrubbers, to eliminate particulate pollution. (CO2 is not a pollutant, nor is water vapor, the two byproducts of clean coal energy production.) They are wealthy enough to do so.
