Unobtainium: What’s Wrong with Wind and Solar?

“Have you ever heard of unobtainium? It’s the magic energy mineral found on the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar. It’s a fantasy in a science fiction script. But environmentalists think they have found it here on earth in the form of wind and solar power.”


One thought on “Unobtainium: What’s Wrong with Wind and Solar?”

  1. What baffles me is: how has it come about that every man and his dog (few of whom are climate scientists) bang on and on about how climate change is going to destroy the Earth and it is all caused by CO2 generated by man?
    All this in spite of the fact that:
    CO2 is beneficial to life on Earth,
    And, levels of CO2 in the atmosphere of the Earth have been fluctuating for millennia – long before man started adding microscopic amounts from coal-fired power stations.

    (These power stations, by the way, have been the mainstay of the improvement in living standards in many countries in the world over the last 200 years.)

    Yes, we must stop polluting the planet. Yes, we must reduce and reuse waste.
    But for goodness sake, let us not destroy the scientific and technological advances achieved over the last 200 years by giving in to this current craze, the “Climate Change God”.
