Summer ecopolitics roundup

The mild summer of 2014 further undermines the radical-progressive environmentalist calls for bigger government spending on climate, renewables and fossil fuel controls. None of the real world economic or climate performances match the partisan green elites’ predictions or policy goals.

Renewable energy substitutes for conventional petroleum and nuclear fuels have not only failed to meet expectations, but have left the climate-obsessed E.U. importing more U.S. coal than ever to cover government-mandated wind and solar energy failures.

The enviro lies about the hazards of “fracking” have yielded to the science of the U.S. EPA and decades of fracked well experience. And, the favorable economics of fracking have pulled regions of American out of recession. Moreover, enviro-caused energy short falls in the E.U. are being mitigated with U.S. fracking techniques.

The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been forced to admit that its decades of fear mongering rhetoric about manmade global warming do not match reality. The U.N.’s forthcoming fifth “climate assessment” states: 1) that climate impacts may have been overestimated in the past, and 2) climate science is too uncertain to justify a single estimate of future rises. The once-hysterical U.N. climate panel chairman has been forced to admit that global warming has been “at a standstill” in recent decades.

President Obama’s new EPA Administrator says she will press forward with stricter climate emission controls on major U.S. industries and electric power producers. But, given Obama’s falling poll numbers, and failures with both domestic and major foreign policy issues, not many of his initiatives will succeed.
