"Green" energy and control pundits are the farm animals wanting to take down the Big Oil farmers, talking big but really about moving themselves and their profits and power to the top when they couldn't do it any other way.
2 legs bad, 4 legs good. Soon after the "green lobby" wins, it's "some animals are more equal than others."
We need to adapt. But we need to be smart. No one with a big agenda can be trusted outright. Problem is, you're still a bloomin' idiot when all you do is decide which trendy party to be part of and accept everything from them as "truth", and take all practical limitations and warnings of such as "heresay".
Trading "Scientists" and "Consensus" for "Priests" changes nothing but the conceit. Science doesn't need a priesthood, but most everyone falls on their "statements of authority" instead of actually doing a little research of their own. If it's real research, it's open. If it's hidden, there's a problem. Monsanto, for example.
