Tom Nelson kindly invited me to give a podcast as part of his series of “sceptical/critical” climate change opinions . I agree that human economic progress has damaged the natural world and consequently changed slightly the climate. However I oppose the the idea that this is some sort of some sort of climate emergency. Ice ages were far worse.
Early hominoids were almost wiped out by the last ice age. Temperatures have risen by nearly 1C since pre-industrial times but the current Net Zero propaganda of imminent doom is total nonsense. The analogy is like lemmings jumping off a cliff !
If we are to maintain human wellbeing, we need a realistic energy plan. Long term that can realistically only be based on nuclear energy, eventually nuclear fusion. Renewable energy alone can never work because it can’t renew its infrastructure. That is because it violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Wind turbines cannot renew themselves because they can’t also mine the iron ore, smelt the steal, manufacture the concrete, repair access roads. dredge rivers etc, etc.
