Power Grab

By William Hunt

Every proposal of the Global Warming/Climate Change lobby involves control. The control of energy production, use by individuals, corporations and governments, and the control of the design, type and the use of devices that use energy.

Naturally, this is to control the use of energy by the ordinary citizen. President B. Hussein Obama used 9,000 gallons of aviation kerosene to visit Iowa on Earth Day. The hypocrisy of that can be felt in the very air. Do as I say, not as I do.

Other politicians and celebrities are similar and if they truly believed what they say, they would be the first to conserve, but despite their rhetoric, they use resources at rates hundreds to millions of times that of the ordinary citizen, but I digress.

The restrictive control of how you or others use energy now is being aimed to extend to all petroleum products and use.

This translates to restrictions on the use of gasoline, diesel, kerosene, heating oil, bunker oils, lubricating oils, coal, natural gas, propane, butane and hundreds of other primary energy products. Electrical energy— mostly generated from aforementioned coal and petroleum products, as well as hydroelectric generation will also be controlled plus the consumer’s ability to use the electricity will be controlled. The net result of such controls will be increased prices on everything that requires energy to manufacture, build, produce or use. In other words, every sort of economic and home activity will be more expensive.
