Costs & Consequences

by Larry Bryan

The misinformation that has existed for several decades about CO2 from human activity being the cause of global warming and climate change is causing governments and others to misallocate and spend trillions of dollars (hat could be better spent on other significant issues) on a problem that does not exist and also adopt policies that are having far reaching and very painful consequences. A few examples. . .

The US government has allocated over 2 trillion to solve the global warming climate change issue. . .primarily by getting rid of fossil fuels and CO2. The money required to fund this initiative will have to be borrowed. This will raise the debt and reduce the amount of capital that is available for investment and economic growth by the private sector. Alternatively, the US government will just print money to fund these policies and that will result in higher inflation, higher costs and lower standards of living.

Each year the US government and other organizations give billions of dollars to universities and others to study the impact of CO2 on the environment, when there is not really a need to do so because it is a non problem.

The US government has and is implementing policies are aimed at eliminating fossil fuels, which are the most cost effective forms of energy known to man. Eliminating fossil fuels means that all of the products that are made from plastics, such as those used in hospitals and many other essential operations, will no longer be able to be made. There are no known alternatives. These policies will result in permanently higher energy costs which will cause living costs around the world to soar.

Politicians and government bureaucracies around the world have been and are using the climate change issue to increase their political power and control over the societies that they govern. As a result, government bureaucracies and regulations will continue to grow. Such growth reduces individual freedom and liberty.

CO2 is plant food. Without CO2 plants cannot survive because it is a key ingredient in photosynthesis. Less CO2 means less plants and less oxygen for humans and animals to breathe (oxygen is a by-product of photosynthesis).

    They say that cutting emissions is essential to fighting climate change and global warming, and is the pain we must accept to save the planet. We’re this true, we could hardly argue against it, which is why believers don’t care about the cost. Yes, emissions are increasing, but global warming is not; isn’t this the message? It’s not enough to say CO2 is a non problem, but that can be seen as just an opinion? One needs to show that human emissions are not causing global warming and so cannot be causing climate change? Best wishes Bud Howard
