The Clean Energy Scam

The Clean Energy Scam leads farmers to cut down rain forest for more soybean farms:

Propelled by mounting anxieties over soaring oil costs and climate change, biofuels have become the vanguard of the green-tech revolution, the trendy way for politicians and corporations to show they’re serious about finding alternative sources of energy and in the process slowing global warming. The U.S. quintupled its production of ethanol — ethyl alcohol, a fuel distilled from plant matter — in the past decade, and Washington has just mandated another fivefold increase in renewable fuels over the next decade. Europe has similarly aggressive biofuel mandates and subsidies, and Brazil’s filling stations no longer even offer plain gasoline. Worldwide investment in biofuels rose from $5 billion in 1995 to $38 billion in 2005 and is expected to top $100 billion by 2010, thanks to investors like Richard Branson and George Soros, GE and BP, Ford and Shell, Cargill and the Carlyle Group. Renewable fuels has become one of those motherhood-and-apple-pie catchphrases, as unobjectionable as the troops or the middle class.

But several new studies show the biofuel boom is doing exactly the opposite of what its proponents intended: it’s dramatically accelerating global warming, imperiling the planet in the name of saving it. Corn ethanol, always environmentally suspect, turns out to be environmentally disastrous. Even cellulosic ethanol made from switchgrass, which has been promoted by eco-activists and eco-investors as well as by President Bush as the fuel of the future, looks less green than oil-derived gasoline.

Meanwhile, by diverting grain and oilseed crops from dinner plates to fuel tanks, biofuels are jacking up world food prices and endangering the hungry. The grain it takes to fill an SUV tank with ethanol could feed a person for a year. Harvests are being plucked to fuel our cars instead of ourselves. The U.N.’s World Food Program says it needs $500 million in additional funding and supplies, calling the rising costs for food nothing less than a global emergency. Soaring corn prices have sparked tortilla riots in Mexico City, and skyrocketing flour prices have destabilized Pakistan, which wasn’t exactly tranquil when flour was affordable.

Biofuels do slightly reduce dependence on imported oil, and the ethanol boom has created rural jobs while enriching some farmers and agribusinesses. But the basic problem with most biofuels is amazingly simple, given that researchers have ignored it until now: using land to grow fuel leads to the destruction of forests, wetlands and grasslands that store enormous amounts of carbon.

    Photosynthesis is only around 2 or 3% efficiency. What a waste of energy and farm land. I wonder if we shifted all subsidies to manufactured fuels made only in desert areas with solar power could we actually do some good? Solar cells are around 20% efficiency and making a bigger market for them would only push this number up. It would also stop taking good farm land off the market.

    I’m for solar power and electric but mostly for military self sufficiency reasons.

  2. Sam J. says:

    I garbled the last part.

    “I’m for solar power and electric cars primarily for military and personal self sufficiency reasons.”

  3. Gavin Longmuir says:

    Electric cars need imported lithium and imported rare earths. That really would not help with military matters.

    Solar power in desert areas is good until the first dust storm of the season. Then there is a great need for very clean fresh water to wash the huge areas of an industrial scale solar power plant. But it is a desert = very limited fresh water.

    If we were serious, we would be pushing nuclear power. Come to think about it — that is exactly what China and Russia are doing! Even oil biggies like Saudi and the UAE are building nuclear power plants. Only dumb Westerners are pinning their hopes on unsustainable intermittent “renewable” power sources.

  4. Sam J. says:

    “…Electric cars need imported lithium and imported rare earths. That really would not help with military matters…”

    The volume is many orders of magnitude less than oil and not all batteries have to be made of lithium. Alternatives are carbon based. Functioning prototypes have been built already. I also like electric cars because they provide independence from the multinational global homo.

    “…Solar power in desert areas is good until the first dust storm of the season…”

    This is not true of all solar and some that is can be brushed off with a car wash type brush.

    “…If we were serious, we would be pushing nuclear power…”

    This I very much agree with. I do like solar better if we can find a way to get the battery and panel prices down. They are coming down at a fairly rapid rate. Musk said one time that with the set backs required for nuclear power plants that you could use solar to get the same amount of power per area. Interesting.

  5. Gavin Longmuir says:

    Sam J: “The volume [of imported Lithium] is many orders of magnitude less than oil ..”

    The volume is less important than the facts that (a) it is essential and (b) it is almost 100% imported. As the old poem that school kids used to have to learn said — ‘The kingdom was lost for want of a horse shoe nail’.

    “Musk said one time that with the set backs required for nuclear power plants that you could use solar to get the same amount of power per area.” — The setback are a regulation, created by bureaucrats. Various navies safely operate nuclear submarines with minimal set-backs for the crews. The difference between solar and nuclear (apart from subsidies) is that nuclear can provide power 24/7/365 — something which solar cannot.

    Nuclear fission is the cheap reliable CO2-free source of power that the human race has today. That is why China is simultaneously building dozens of nuclear power plants and providing financial support to Western “environmentalists” and politicians to kill nuclear power here.

  6. Sam J. says:

    “(a) it is essential”

    No it’s not and you have no proof for this. All kinds of batteries can be made. People have made carbon based batteries/super capacitors with very high Whr/Kg.

    The guy who invented the present lithium battery most people use has said he has something much better in a solid state version that can be made with potassium.

    I showed you some numbers on flywheels and they are a valid method to store power. Their power weight ration is way higher. All this will take time but it will be faster than you think.

    A lot of this stuff doesn’t get money because people who invest rarely invest in long shots like this that take a good while to prove out. Especially in the present state the economy is in. Eventually some people will slug away at this stuff until they get it right.

    I’m not on any way against nukes EXCEPT for the fact that it’s a centralized source of power. Much better to be decentralized so the government has less control.

    Like those idiots in California who are destroying the whole entire power grid with their stupidity and greed. They should make those fuckers pay for all those houses they burnt down because they were too cheap to replace or even inspect the hangers holding up the power wires. They were there so long they wore all the way through. I bet if they had to pay for all this destruction they would do a better job. They were directly responsible for multi-billion dollar destruction so they could keep profits up.

    They’re treating us like a third world country where they buy the monopoly infrastructure assets then bleed them for every dime they can get. They’ve been doing this for decades all over the world. Supposedly it’s supposed to be more “efficient” but in reality they just bleed everyone dry and run down the infrastructure. They should be prosecuted. Eventually if they keep doing nothing about these looters I suspect people will take up arms against them. They’re no different form antifa and most likely paid by the same people.

  7. Sam J. says:

    “…The volume is less important than…”

    Actually I should have stopped there because the statement you made is so ridiculous as to definitely apply as an official Clown World statement.

    You trying to tell me that it’s the same difficulty to import 9.10 million barrels per day or 485,940,000 tons a year as compared to 2,500 metric tons of lithium???

    And don’t say we have no lithium we have just been attacking the mining companies for decades so they can loot us all. A quote,”…The Kings Mountain pegmatite belt of North Carolina also had significant production from pegmatites, and the area may still contain as much as 750 million metric tons (Mt) of ore containing 5 Mt lithium metal..”

    5 million metric tons is a shit load of lithium and that’s just one spot. That’s enough for 74,626,865 Teslas and mines are opening up all over to cash in. The Destroyacrats typically run the country into the ground and close all the business and then when it gets drastic the Republicans come in and actually let business build something. Not that the Republicans are not evil also just slightly less evil and they will actually let you have some sort a business.

    Don’t be silly or say such silly things and people will not think you are part of Clown World.

  8. Sam J. says:

    “…One of the world’s largest lithium deposits is located in Nevada, close to Tesla’s Gigafactory…”

  9. Gavin Longmuir says:

    Sam J: “One of the world’s largest lithium deposits is located in Nevada, close to Tesla’s Gigafactory”

    Yes, the US has large resources. But is that lithium deposit being mined? Based on your other comments, you know the answer, Sam.

    We are in complete agreement that Democrats, “environmentalists”, and others (probably mostly funded by foreign interests) are doing everything they can to cripple the US. Heading down the wrong technological avenue with unsustainable unpredictably-intermittent “renewables” as the preferred (only?) source of essential electricity is only one part of their scheme.

  10. RLVC says:

    Sam, how are you right about so much?

  11. Sam J. says:

    You said,

    Gavin Longmuir says,”Electric cars need imported lithium and imported rare earths.”

    You are wrong. Don’t pop off with some silly assed,”Yes, the US has large resources. But is that lithium deposit being mined?…”. That statement has no meaning in the context we are taking about and you know it.

    You’ve got to be Jewish. Only Jewish people act like they know everything and then play ignorant and change the subject every time they are proven wrong and when cornered just continue to lie, lie, lie, lie and dissemble.

    I’m not sure if you people really internalize just how annoying you are and what severe dislike for you your behavior creates. You think that you’re getting over on people and being witty but in the end you are just destroying any appreciation for you or any empathy at all for you. After a while even if you mean well and are doing the best you can you will get no empathy from anyone because they can’t rely on a damn thing you say. It’s pointless to depend on any assurance of anything from Jews.

    I have said many times the behavior of a bunch of Jews moving to your country is in no way distinguishable from a tribe of psychopaths moving into your country. This is not to say all Jews are psychopaths but get a lot of them together and there’s no way to tell the difference between them and a tribe of psychopaths. No one can stand psychopaths for any long period of time.

    Psychologist have determined that the only way to deal with psychopaths is get rid of them. Move them out of your lives so they have no meaning or effect on you at all. Every country that has been infested with Jews has eventually thrown them out and the results have in all cases I know of been extremely positive for the inhabitants of the countries.

    Now this moving about of the Jews after looting countries until they could stand no more and were forcibly deported has been working for the Jews for thousands of years but …world wide communications and correlation of data worldwide is going to put a big ass crimp in their fortunes in the future. Where are you going to go?

    The Jews even had a panel and paper written and I believe they planned on going to China. I’m not sure what happened with that plan. The Jews moved all the production out of the US and stole vast amounts of technical knowledge from us in the process and I’m sure the Chinese kissed their asses and made them welcome while they were doing it. But now that the Chinese have taken all this for themselves I expect at some point the Chinese decided to do something the Jews didn’t like and when they complained about it, as they do constantly, the Chinese told them to fuck off. Whoops!!

    The Chinese are not nice, try to get along, people like Europeans they are going to stab you in the back just like you do us and even worse your hold on the occidental mind is slipping.

    Their psychopathic burn everything down antifa and their lackeys Burn Loot and Murder are making things even worse. I mean there’s no fucking doubt that the Jews are funding this just like they funded all the bombing, riots and the Black Panthers in the 60′s and 70′s.

    I say these things in the hope that somehow you people will begin to see that what you are doing is counterproductive and will lead eventually to big problems but if history is any guide the Jews will pay not one damn iota of attention to the perilous position they are putting themselves in and like wild animals continue to attack everyone around them.

    My reference to wild animals is not a thrown off statement. I believe many of you are nothing but wild animals. Psychopaths, I suspect, are nothing but humans in the animal state before history began.

    Animals, unless you are close offspring, are only interested in themselves. Anyone in their territory without the power to control them is exterminated. When civilization did pop up it progressed fast in terms of our history overall. A scientific research program in Russia made me think differently about early Man and led me to this idea. The Russian domesticated red fox study.

    The practical implications of this are the presence of order or disorder directly related to how much you can empathize with others. If no one had any empathy then you have huge disorder. How many times have you been around people and not killed them when you could have gotten away with it? We don’t kill them because of empathy.

    Sam J’s theory of civilization,”Civilization came about because of the rise of empathy. This allowed people to work together”.

    Sam J’s theory of civilization, ”Empathy is necessary to form civilization. As capacity for empathy rose civilization rose with it.”

  12. Gavin Longmuir says:


    You are apparently sincere in your anti-Semitism. Consider the possibility that you are being played.

    Fact is that now the US has to import almost all lithium and rare earths. Fact. Presumably, what you are trying to say is that the US actually has the minerals in the ground to supply those essential materials domestically. If that is what you are trying to say, then you are correct. The question is — Why is the US not developing those domestic resources to create jobs, wealth, tax revenues, independence?

    The answer is plain — “environmental” groups like the Sierra Club, greedy suing lawyers, and Democrat politicians who pass laws preventing development. But peel back the onion — why are Democrats crippling the US?

    You need look back no further than the Clintons, Sam. Remember Charlie Trie bundling dubious foreign-sourced campaign contributions. Remember Bill Clinton authorizing the sale of nuclear missile guidance technology to China. The Democrat Party has been infiltrated & bought by the Chinese.

    Smart guys, those Chinese! While they have their hand in Sam’s pocket, they are pointing over at a distant Jewish guy and saying “Sam! That Jewish guy is robbing you blind!”

    You are being played, Sam. Don’t fall for it.

    It’s not the Jews, or the Israelis.
    Nor is it the Chinese.
    Nor the Russians.
    Nor the Mexicans.

    It’s the Americans. We have a problem with each other, and we can’t talk it out. One side wants the Heritage American side dead or in de facto camps, so they can finish stealing the rest.

    The other side although having no organization or any real leadership beyond a hopelessly dated Philanthropist in Chief [Trump] as Tribune…does at long last realize their peril, and doesn’t want to die, or live in de facto camps.

    As far as the charge that the Left wants us dead, I can now break the Internet with links and quotes of them saying exactly that…but I won’t bother.

    The successful racialization of the American conflict is to simply give the elites actual ground troops as opposed to the soft managerial class.
    I would judge it’s working. Tragic, but most wars are…interestingly it’s really class warfare masquerading as racial warfare…but it’s working.

    So here we are.

    All of the above mentioned foreign groups are simply looking out for their interests, and the American and yes white elites are betraying their own.

    These things happen from time to time, in China for instance it’s happened many times.

    And so it goes.

  14. RLVC says:

    Gavin is right. Don’t fall for it, Sam.

  15. Lucklucky says:

    “Smart guys, those Chinese! While they have their hand in Sam’s pocket, they are pointing over at a distant Jewish guy and saying “Sam! That Jewish guy is robbing you blind!””

    It is not the Chinese or anyone else. It is Sam. He does not need any outside help.

  16. Sam J. says:

    Gavin Longmuir says,”…The answer is plain — “environmental” groups like the Sierra Club…”

    This is so typical. All of you should pay attention because this is classic Jew misdirection. So it’s “the Sierra Club” that’s the problem???

    Unfortunately the Sierra Club, as usual, has Jew money running it. They used to be against mass immigration until a hedge fund Jew gave them $100 million to shut up. So as usual in the background using this ill gotten FED derived gains they control things with cash.

    And Clinton, totally Jew controlled. I don’t even have to look it up to know whatever companies got contracts from the Chinese were Jew controlled companies. So the Jews get a win win for them. They weaken their enemies, whoever they live among at any time, and they make cash.

    It’s like this in most every case where “movements” are started that weaken the US and any other White countries. They will dredge up some crazed person and feed them cash to destroy the nation. Burn Loot and Murder has a Jew running it right now. For many years they have been funding the elites while looting the country. This is the same pattern they’ve always followed for as long as we have history written down.

    Maybe the Jews will be able to pull off the overthrow of the US like Russia but I doubt it. They don’t have the manpower and these drug addled antifa they have can in no way win a serious civil war. In reality they are just slowly hollowing out the US but they have no where to go that’s safe. If the US loses power I expect the middle east will become more belligerent towards Israel and they have really pissed those people off. Maybe they can’t fight but there’s a lot of them. Not to mention it’s likely that the US will eventually see through Jew propaganda and become their active enemies. Remember Germany was way more controlled that the US is and they were able to shrug off the Jews.

    There is one outside possibility. I see stories that the Chinese will fire EMP weapons and then attack up through Mexico after a big die off. Ahhh, I’m not so sure about that. EMP is not all powerful. There are circuit breakers and even if it’s true and the Jews are helping the Chinese will use the Jews then stab them in the back and give them each a bullet in the head.

    It doesn’t get any clearer. The only thing we can do is get rid of these people. The Jews must go. Peacefully if we can get it but by any means necessary they must go.

  17. Sam J. says:

    “…Heritage American…having no organization or any real leadership beyond a hopelessly dated Philanthropist in Chief [Trump] as Tribune…does at long last realize their peril, and doesn’t want to die, or live in de facto camps…”

    And we may very well not even have that. Trump may very well be a ringer. It would explain the Jews arrogance in the face or rising opposition.

    It would also explain the Democrats insane Joe Biden campaign. It’s so warped and so bad that it hard to reconcile how they could be so stupid unless…that’s the plan. Get the ringer in then crush the bad Whites.

  18. Sam J. says:

    Here’s a novel idea if the Jews wish to stop consideration that they are bad evil people they should stop supporting bad evil things.
