UN Climate Change Delegates Punked Into Wearing Carbon Emissions Capture Mask

At the UN climate conference a group from CFACT were able to convince quite a few man made climate change UN delegates from various countries to try on a mask and commit to wearing a mask that captures CO2 from your breath.

The mask looks like something you would wear mowing your lawn or while painting a house. The mask is very intrusive and would be quite uncomfortable to wear to bed and in many other settings.

The idea of using the mask on your pets and other such bizarre suggestions were also considered by the UN delegates. The whole thing was a punked type setup but it makes a hilarious point at the same time.

These elite supposed smart individuals are more like followers in this man made climate change debate than being actual leaders. These delegates are simply pawns in the grand scheme of this while Al Gore relaxes in his new $9 million house that uses the same amount of electricity as an entire working class neighborhood. He purchased this house in the luxurious hills of Montecito, CA with the money he has made from investments opened up to him from his Cap and Trade legislation.

So what about the claim that “98% of all scientists believe in global warming”, is this true because it sure sounds smart and true. This came from a very widely over-used 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists. This survey qualified these scientists down to 75 people who answered “yes” to the 2nd question in the survey. There were only 77 who had been successful in getting more than half of their papers recently accepted by peer-reviewed climate science journals, that were considered in their survey statistic. That “98% all scientists” often claimed is actually a puny number of 75 of those 77 who answered “yes” to that 2nd survey question.

Since 1998, more than 31,000 American scientists from many climate-related areas of study, which makes up more than 9,000 with Ph.D.s, have signed a public petition presenting their side of the story which is that “…there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” Among the scientists that did this petition there are atmospheric physicists, botanists, geologists, oceanographers, and meteorologists.

The cap and trade legislation is acting like a slush fund for politicians to take this money and spend it on whatever whenever as they please which they are doing right now with social security, Obamacare, and many other promised programs that were set aside for one purpose and then used for something else. More disturbing than the slush fund is the billions of dollars quietly being sent over to the UN by America.

Electricity rates will go up because of this man made climate change lunacy and the higher prices you pay have hidden taxes, pass through charges, etc. that ultimately find there way back to the liberal politicians we voted into office for their spending pleasure. They will call it cap and trade and necessary for reducing man made global warming but it will not be all used for that purpose which makes you wonder if some of these guys even believe in what they are preaching. It’s no surprise that we have seen our very own politicians invest in multiple solar companies tied to some of these climate change initiatives only to watch the executives make a fortune and the companies to go out of business. Al Gore has been the direct recipient on the profiting end of many of these government backed investments. Solyndra is one of hundreds of examples of this scam running throughout the US government.

I am not saying that we shouldn’t reduce pollution in the form of coal generation polluting the air with led, unsafe nuclear facilities, recycling, and other pragmatic ways of truly helping our environment in a real provable way. All this attention on man made climate change is a scam and hurting the real environmental movements out there that truly seek to make the earth a cleaner healthier place.

Best Energy Efficiency Gift for Christmas

This Christmas us guys often get stumped on what to get other guy friends and family in our lives and it is no different and usually worse trying to think of a female gift.

My wife is often stumped about what to get me and other males in her life and I try and remind her that guys are all about utility. Get something a guy can use with his hands like a tool, gadget, or even an activity or event type thing such as a canoe trip, concert, or sporting event.

When it comes to energy and saving money on your electric bill and of course helping out the environment all at the same time I have a very awesome gift to suggest. I use this product myself during the hot Texas summers and I think your family or friends will love it as well.

I do not get any money or anything at all for mentioning this product…I simply mention it because I love it and it saves me a ton of money during the summer. It is called the “Cool N’ Save”

What it is is a mister you install on top of your air conditioner. You hook this thing up for about 3 – 4 months during the summer by connecting to your outdoor house water faucet and then sticking it to the top of your AC unit.

When the AC fan kicks on this little flap raises and the 3 mister devices mist the coils around your air conditioning unit. The air is cooled around the AC system and this means your air conditioner does not have to work nearly as hard as it did when it was being cooled with extremely hot Texas air.

The whole system costs $99 and comes with a water filter to prevent scaling during the 3 months you run this during the summer.

Next summer you simply order a new water filter and you are off and running again. It probably won’t hurt the system too much to use your old filter while you wait for the new one to arrive in the mail when your in to your second year with this system. When you are into your 2nd year the filter costs $29 and can also be ordered from their website.

I would assume it would be possible to buy a cheaper filter and retrofit it somehow if you wanted to save a little extra money on the filter but I have not bothered trying to do this as $29 a filter is completely workable for me.

If this sounds like a pretty cool energy efficiency green electricity type product like it did to me than go check it out at their website below. I saved a substantial amount on my monthly electric bill in the summer and I am sure you or the person you give this gift to will also.

NRG Energy The Company That Owns Reliant Buys Green Mountain Energy

NRG Energy just bought Green Mountain Energy for $350 million dollars.

NRG Energy is the New Jersey based power generation company that bought Reliant Energy not that far back.

So Green Mountain Energy and Reliant Energy are now under the same corporate umbrella known as NRG Energy. Very interesting development.

I wonder what the Green environmental activists will have to say about a power generation company buying “Green” Mountain Energy?

Texas Electric: How Wind Makes Electricity

 

Wind energy is a growing green energy option for many Texans. In the last four years, in fact, wind turbines have provided a significant portion of the state’s electricity. But, have you ever wondered how wind produces electricity? Here we explain how.

Wind is simply air in motion. The surface of the earth is made up of different elements, ie, land and water, which absorb the heat of the sun at different rates.

During daylight hours, the air above land heats up faster than the air over water. This warm land expands and rises. When this happens, cooler air rushes in to take its place. This creates wind. At nighttime, the process is reversed because air cools more rapidly over land than water.  

This makes wind a renewable (ie, green) energy source because as long as the sun shines, wind will be produced.

To produce electricity, wind machines (aka wind turbines) use blades to collect the wind’s kinetic energy. When the wind flows over the blades, this creates what’s known as “lift,” akin to the effect wind has on airplane wings. Wind turbine blades are connected to a drive shaft, which turns an electric generator and makes electricity.

If you’re interested in this green energy option, shop around for Texas electricity suppliers who provide it.

Another Way to Bring in the Green

Going green in your energy options is not the only way to save some green (money). If you’re on a prepaid electric service plan, for example, you are paying more for your energy.

Solution: Switch to a conventional electric service plan. If you’re worried about having to pay a deposit, take comfort in the fact that there are low-deposit and no-deposit electric plans offered by energy suppliers that have been serving Texans for decades.

For example, the LITE-UP Texas Program. It’s a no-deposit electric service plan that gives customers a discount on their energy bills every May through September. Even if you have to save up to pay a deposit to take advantage of energy savings like this, it’s worth it because you not only get the lowest rates around, you get the best service as well.
