Myth #6. Renewable energy is just a tactic used to make money

Most people believe renewable energy is very expensive, even though this is purely a myth. In fact, the cheapest ways of generating energy are solar power and onshore wind, making it much less cheap than nuclear, gas, and fossil fuels.

According to Earth.org, the cost of renewable energy has decreased drastically, faster than anyone could have ever anticipated. Even so, the government is still supporting dirty fossil fuels.
“did you know the US has the biggest fossil fuel subsidies in the world? That’s right, we spend an average of $568 billion per year supporting dirty fossil fuels.”

  1. The earth had to overcome birth, 4.5 billion yrs ago. If it can overcome that challenging epic of birth why not puny mans contributions? One volcanoes eruption introduces more pollution than mans effort of yrs. does.

  2. JOINED USA NAVY IN 1964 TO AVOID THE ARMY DRAFT.
    I ATTENDED ELECTRICIAN SCHOOL AND WENT TO AN
    AIRCRAFT CARRIER IN SAN DIEGO. WE MADE 2 TRIPS TO
    VIET NAM. OUR SHIP HAD 3,500 MEN ABORD; I WAS PROMOTED
    TO E-4 ELECTRICIANS MATE. I DO NOT REGRET ANY DECIONS
    THAT I MADE IN MY LIFE. MY WIFE AND I ARE MARRIED 50
    YEARS NOW. PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. I AM SURE
    THAT EVERYONE AGREES…AMEN.

  3. It is 100% political. Who wrote this silly article? Humans have NO CONTROL of the planet. It controls us. What is the #1 cause of temperatures going up? Volcanoes. Long before humans lived volcanoes controlled the planet. Present: warm. Absent: cold.

    1. Don’t confuse the anti-oil, anti-Western Civilization zealots. They want us all to be Third World Countries.

  4. Actually volcanoes cool the earth. The ashes block the sun. 1992 was “the year without a summer” because of weakened sunlight from Mount Pinatubo erupting.

    1. John, just a small fact about Pinatubo. First, I saw the eruption in person. Second, and most important, the eruption of Pinatubo did more damage the earths attmosphere than all of human existance on this planet and it fixes itself. If the tree hugging community were to be unable to strike fear in public at large, then they’d lose all funding. Always follow the money.

    Well I’m old enough to remember global cooling. We were going to become an ice ball. What happened? I was willing to listen to your opinion, however it became clear that this poorly written article or it was not edited thoroughly was not going to shed any light on the theory of GW. Which alway lessens my interest in following the story. Here are just a few examples of what I mean.
    “making it much less cheap” that’s my favorite
    “This is the biggest crisis we ever have to say, and sadly it’s man-made.”
    “now how to survive”
    There are many other little things that make this hard to take seriously.
    I’m just a simple old man. I’m not a writer, but I’ve always noticed these little things that annoyed me. But I’m willing to do my part so here’s a helpful solution for two problems. To help with water problems in the western part of the country crank up the desalinization plant on the California coast. Also bring in the desalinization ships that the US Navy has and pump that water into the the farmlands, lakes and reservoirs. I know they don’t have big hoses, and it’s not like filling a pool. However I’m sure the US Army Corps of Engineers “Essayons” (let us try) can find a way to transport the fresh water to the right location. This, I’m sure you already realized, will take a massive amount of water from the ocean which may help with global sea rise.

  6. The Earth’s climate is cyclic. Early on, the Earth was mostly molten rock but that was before the Ice Age. Florida used to be under water with sharks roaming the “state.” Dinosaurs used to walk the planet when most of it was covered with snow and ice — wooly mammoth remains are found all over. I believe man DOES have an impact but, compared to Nature’s way of changing the environment, that impact is minimal. As far as solutions, where do the tree-huggers think that electrical current comes from to charge these super-new vehicles that make batteries a newcomer to the trash dumps. If they want everyone to go back to simpler times, let the explain why we all use plastic bags; another of the tree-huggers desires! The problem is that the Earth’s population is booming so fast that no natural resource is going to last long — and that all results in climate changes in the long run.
