Environmental Wackos have been scamming people for almost 100 years…
I remember back in the 70’s we were all supposed to freeze to death within 50 years, so said the “experts”. Then that fell on deaf ears and fizzled out. Enter Al Gore, unemployed and defeated dim presidential candidate, looking for employment, next thing we know the planet will be melting. Gore came up with the “carbon credit” scheme, or at least he pushed the idea, and it caught on. Governments embraced it as it created a new taxable revenue scheme. Brokers embraced it as a new stock where no product needed to be produced but still reaping big dividends from literally nothing more than thin air. The tree-humpers embraced it as a unicorn fantasy means to curtail the horrible effects of fossil fuels.
It’s a friggin rip-off of the highest order and a means to screw the consumer… period, stop… end of story.
Meanwhile, the Saudis, Russia, and other oil producing nations are pouring money into the groups that wish to see our oil and gas production halted.
Fortunately, we have a president who sees the bullshit for what it is.
