Now then, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I can't think of a single thing that has been better for the oil companies or fossil fuels since the advent of OPEC than alternative energy and the new religion of global warming. After all, we have now graduated huge numbers of individuals from our colleges and universities who have made it their life's mission to reduce CO2 emissions and bring forth our alternative energy future. They believe in this so much, that they truly have made it into a religion. Okay so, let's talk about this for a moment shall we?
Some would contend that we need higher oil prices so alternative energy can afford to compete in free markets. I completely disagree with that, but let's go ahead and discuss this. If we give guaranteed loans to large alternative energy projects, and if we subsidize the alternative energy sector, then we are making it weak, therefore it cannot compete in free markets. This is good news for fossil fuel companies and big oil because they will be competing against energy alternatives that can't make a reasonable or solid return on investment. Therefore, in the long-term these new energy sources are no threat at all.
Meanwhile, by artificially raising the price of fossil fuels we are actually funding those that wish us ill, and the very thing that at least the alternative energy and global warming alarmists call evil. Alternative energy and all the exploits, subsidies, tax advantages, along with all the rules and regulations put on fossil fuels creates barriers to entry in the energy sector, guaranteed high profits, and income for all energy producers, and an absolute guarantee that alternative energy will never be able to compete in the free market; it's too weak, and it is becoming fat, dumb, and happy from the beginning as we blow up the 'largest economic sector bubble' of all; alternative energy.
If you thought OPEC was your enemy, think again, the global warming alarmists, along with the radical environmentalists, and the socialist who have hijacked academia, our government, and now the energy sector has and will continue to do more damage to our economy than OPEC could ever have hoped for. Not to mention the fact that OPEC is actually being helped and propped up by these artificially high energy prices. Do you know who's paying for it all? You are. And let me borrow a quote from a psychologist; 'how does that make you feel?'
Indeed, I ask that you please consider all this, wake up, and stop marching in step in some new religion and global warming scheme that was concocted as a solution to continue the control over our economy, while keeping you in economic enslavement. Silly human, you think you're so smart don't you? Yippie-Skippy, alternative energy, and the new utopian civilization; 'Like it on Facebook!' You wish.
