Environmentalism Has Lost Its Way

Funny how all the intensive mining for battery, solar panel and wind turbine components, and all the resulting toxic and other waste, gets billed as clean energy by climate obsessives.

Driven by climate madness, the environmental movement has become the greatest advocate of destructive industrial development in history.

As Kant said: “To will the end is to will the means”. In this case the means to the phantom end of climate control have led environmentalists to abandon all of their principles. Solar and wind require environmental destruction on an unprecedented scale. Electrification requires the use of toxic chemicals on a similar scale. The hazardous waste stream is enormous.

Solar is the worst because the destruction of forests and open land is complete. Perhaps something lives under these vast solar slabs but not much and certainly nothing like what they destroy and displace.

As I pointed out in my recent article on Virginia’s ill-named Clean Economy Act, we are talking about hundreds of square miles of solar devastation today, for just one state. See my https://www.cfact.org/2021/12/27/paving-virginia-with-solar-slabs-is-a-bad-law/

    Dr. Wojick, I direct you to Jordan Peterson’s Dictum:

    “If you can’t figure out what someone is doing, or why, look at the outcome.
    And infer the motivation. If it produces mayhem, perhaps it was aiming at mayhem.”

    Environmentalism has never really been about the environment, from its inception as a Leftish, romantic, mystical back to nature movement. It has always been a vehicle for those who hate parts of modern life or who want to preserve some privilege they have that is threatened by development (rich Royals gazing at elephants say).

    Heavy snowfall is expected in the UK. A front from the west has already reached Scotland.

    Typical climate nonsense…

    The ‘fast response’ generation plant would generate electricity during peak periods

    Freeze in the dark then?

    It is definitely worth having a discussion of where is appropriate to place solar panels vs where it can be harmful.
