Perhaps it’s just us at this site, given our focus on energy poverty and the immorality of further restricting energy supply options to billions already in complete poverty, but there seems to be a rising swell of content and reporting on the contradictions and anti-civilisation tone of the dominant “humans and fossil fuels are bad” climate narrative, and that’s a fantastic thing, if indeed true…
Although our graph above of search trends for the term “energy poverty” does not suggest much has changed in recent years, despite the situation become increasingly critical as activists and governments alike increase their pressure on energy developments.
Either way, it’s hard to tell, but we’ll certainly keep plugging away.
Today we feature an excellent article featuring several key themes concerning energy poverty, including the absolute craziness of expecting renewable technologies that are barely sophisticated enough for the world’s richest countries to somehow service the poorest in the world as the eradication of fossil fuel developments is pursued by the evil globalist climate control jokers.
How anyone can look at the massive global problem that is energy poverty and suggest that removing supply options from the equation is the way to go is a constant mystery and yet more evidence of the immorality of those that will use any excuse possible to play out their population control fantasies.
The idea that some of the poorest people on Earth will be using green hydrogen—possibly the most complex and expensive energy technology that exists—and building out “smart micro-grid networks” in just a few years at anywhere near the scale required is absurd. Not even solar energy or wind power—if it could be built out quickly enough—could fuel development in the global south without backup power using fossil fuels, of which gas is the cleanest by far. In sub-Saharan Africa, which has large gas fields offshore and includes many of the world’s poorest countries, a ban on financing gas projects would practically end support for the critical energy infrastructure necessary to support economic development and raise living standards—including electricity for homes, schools, and factories; industrial heat for producing cement and steel; the carbon dioxide that is an essential component of synthetic fertilizer; and liquefied gas for transportation and cooking fuel.
