The Social “Cost” of Carbon is Positive

Nothing better illustrates the stupidity and evil intent of Green philosophy than their promotion of a mythical guestimate called the “social cost of carbon” (SCC).

They use this bureaucratic weapon to demonise the fabulous fossil fuels that deliver food, heat, light and power to the modern world.
Let’s consider life before coal, oil and gas were harnessed.

There was no steel and no cars, tractors, trucks, trains, planes or electric power. It was a world of sulkies, sailing boats and sun-dried food. Hunters used bows and spears, farmers used oxen and wooden ploughs and threshed grain with wooden flails. Half of all crops grown went to feed draft animals. Forests surrounding towns were felled for firewood, charcoal, shingles, houses, ships, wagons and bridges. Whalers scoured the oceans to produce whale oil for lamps, and dung was collected for fuel. For most people, life was one of hunger and toil.

Fossil fuels changed all this and also brought many other social benefits.

Greens seem unaware that “carbon” coming from man-made CO2 is beneficial plant food supporting all life on Earth including polar bears, cane toads, prickly pear, rain forests and wheat.

Moreover, in those countries which use the most hydro-carbons (such as USA, UK and Australia) we see prosperous people, trees protected, whales revered, arts thriving, cleaner air and water, and agriculture producing more food and oxygen from less land.

The SCC is a fraud – carbon fuels have produced immense social benefits and will continue to do so.

It's why we still use fuel. The brain dead hippies are still trying to figure it out. It's because. Our existence is entirely dependent on it.

CO2 replaces Oxygen in the atmosphere. In the past hundred years there is 30% less Oxygen in the atmosphere due to the production of CO2 from burning fossil fuel, thus causing an epidemic of respiratory diseases. That does not sound like it benefits human society.

I'm 100% positive that all of my ancestors would trade places with me. Yours might be a different story. Pride is a powerful emotion
