The Blackout Rally Meets the Light Brigade | Center for Industrial Progress
To assess whether this is a good thing, you need know only two facts.
1. In all of human history, there have been only three cheap, plentiful, reliable sources of energy: fossil fuel energy, nuclear energy, and hydroelectric energy. (Solar and wind have always been radically inferior as they have always been expensive and unreliable.)
2. The leading “forward on climate” groups seek to destroy not only vital fossil fuel energy, but also nuclear and hydroelectric energy, which emit no CO2.
Conclusion: This rally has nothing to do with climate, though I know many of its participants believe it does. It is about opposing any form of practical energy for any reason. It is a Blackout Rally. And today’s so-called environmentalist movement is a Blackout Movement. No one wants dirty water–but some people want to destroy the energy that keeps our lights on (and cleans our water).
