I cannot imagine anything will save us. We are now so used to government spending which is by nature non-value-adding (do you know what that means?) that it is impossible to think how we could reverse ourselves. We are already going backwards and the conventional wisdom plus the way economics is taught will mean there can never be a consensus on doing what is right.
We are heading into a new feudalism. This is how The Powerline article ends.
I think a global economic meltdown is possible as a result of “green” fantasies. I don’t mean just a recession or garden-variety depression, I mean a collapse in which homes can’t be heated, lights don’t go on, factories shutter, supply lines break down, agriculture is devastated resulting in acute food shortages, a generation’s accumulated wealth vanishes, civilization begins to break down, and hundreds of millions of people–maybe more–may die. “Green” energy doesn’t mean unicorns and fairies frolicking in meadows. It means grim, fatal dystopia.
No one believes it but there us so much ignorance everywhere that when it starts it will persist. And it will come sooner than you think and last a long long time.
