Over The Rainbow Part 2

The cry that only green energy will save us never ends, despite the evidence it does not work. The Greens raise the cry that fossil fuels are running out so we must immediately change to windmills. So very strange it is that every prediction of peak oil has turned out to be wrong. The world swims in oil and gas, oceans and oceans of it. It is entirely possible the hidden reserves are not close to being finite. Oil is not the product of ancient forests being compressed into liquid carbon by millions of years of pressure as we once believed. Thorium reactors are here now, and there will one day be cold fusion, but until that day we have plenty of oil and natural gas to keep us going very nicely. I very much doubt fracking will be the only new method for tapping into the sea of oil beneath our feet. There is currently no crisis in energy, despite the cries of despair from the Greens. To believe that solar and wind will replace fossil fuels is lunacy. There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and if there is a pot it is filled with oil.

Somewhere, over the rainbow
Wind and sun
Will be found not insane though
And all our cares are done
Somewhere, over the rainbow
Skies are blue
Folks from Texas to Maine though
Just want to know what’s true
Someday we’ll wish upon a star
And find these fossil fuels are far behind us
Where solar flows like lemon drops
And wind blows strong and never stops
So just remind us
That somewhere over the rainbow
Wind blows free
And the sun will remain so
No more need oil will we
Somewhere over the rainbow
Oil will die
Dreams fly over the rainbow
Why then oh why can’t I
