Free Prime Not for Greens: He Who Sups with the Devil Should Have a Long SpoonAuthor Ian Plimer – Z55z.co

The processes required to make a humble stainless steel teaspoon are remarkably complicated and every stage involves risk, coal, energy, capital, international trade and finance Stainless steel cutlery has taken thousands of years of experimentation and knowledge to evolve and the end result is that we can eat without killing ourselves with bacteria We are in the best times to have ever lived on planet Earth and the future will only be better All this we take for granted Greens may have started as genuine environmentalists Much of the green movement has now morphed into an unelected extremist political pressure group accountable to no one Greens create problems, many of which are concocted, and provide no solutions because of a lack of basic knowledge This book examines green policies in the light of established knowledge and shows that they are unrealistic Policies by greens adopted by supine governments have resulted in rising costs, increased taxes, political instability, energy poverty, decreased longevity and environmental degradation and they don t achieve their ideological aims Wind, solar and biomass energy emit carbon dioxide than they save and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions does nothing to change climate and only empties the pocket No stainless steel teaspoon could be made using green alternative energy This book argues that unless the greens live sustainably in caves in the forest and use no trappings of the modern world, then they should be regarded as hypocrites and treated with the disdain they deserve

    A book about a teaspoon, how boring Not quite Renowned geologist Ian Plimer eviscerates the lunar left in this brilliant polemic Plimer s contempt for the greens is a breath of fresh air.0134% CO2 Carbon dioxide is a miracle gas according to the greens and it s going to destroy everything and everyone you love Hyperbole, sensationalism and fear mongering sell papers and win votes The greens success is unbelievable and the effects of their activism have been devastating From energy A book about a teaspoon, how boring Not quite Renowned geologist Ian Plimer eviscerates the lunar left in this brilliant polemic Plimer s contempt for the greens is a breath of fresh air.0134% CO2 Carbon dioxide is a miracle gas according to the greens and it s going to destroy everything and everyone you love Hyperbole, sensationalism and fear mongering sell papers and win votes The greens success is unbelievable and the effects of their activism have been devastating From energy poverty across Europe to deaths in Africa the morally righteous greens have a lot to answer for Plimer s confrontational, no hold barred style is powerful He is the alpha male attack dog that the science community needs to stand up to the swindler activists This book contains a lot of science This supports Plimer arguments Reread that sentence greens, it s how science and humanity as a whole have settled disputes since way back when Science has been tarnished by the greens The book outlines the misleading, deceptive tactics used by climate scientists to achieve their agenda What this agenda is is a cause of considerable speculation Plimer notes that governments have used global warming as a pretext for increasing taxation, redistributing wealth, eroding freedom and maintaing power Sounds a bit like totalitarianism Not to worry the greens have compassion, empathy and a patent on good intentions Not For Greens effectively debunks the carbon dioxide argument put forward by the greens 3% of carbon dioxide emissions are man made and carbon dioxide makes of 0.4% of the atmosphere It is a trace gas and yet somehow the malevolent miners are going to ruin the world one hellish ore mine at a time Which brings me to my favourite section of the book green solutions to the carbon dioxide problem Plimer crunches the numbers on wind farms, solar power and biofuels These numbers show the impracticality and destructiveness of these ideological energy sources For instance, if Australia wishes to be 20% wind powered it would come at a bargain basement cost of 303 billion On top of habitat destruction, from land clearance as well as the slaughter of birds and bats from the wind turbines it s evident that the greens aren t so environmental after all The subsidies afforded to the greens as well as the carbon tax imposed on Australians is disgusting and the gullible media is partially responsible for this I found the use of a teaspoon as method to expose the greens ingenious This simple everyday item is the product of thousands of years worth of experimentation and knowledge The fact that the minerals within a teaspoon are not found in any one country is a happy coincidence for Plimer and he exploits this to its fullest International trade and organisation are necessary in the creation of a teaspoon and this process is an anathema to green ideology I found Plimer s technical writing on coal, iron and a number of other minerals a bit of a slog to get through However, I found myself astounded by the complexities involved in mining and the wealth of accumulated knowledge involved To right Plimer holds the green movement with disdain, they disregard and denigrate a whole body of knowledge with no substantial evidence or solutions Whining, hypocritical, pious pricks All in all Not For Greens is a wonderfully funny, cogent dismemberment of the green movement It has reinforced my inner feelings of the hypocritical, unfounded green arguments and loaded me up with a munitions factory worth of material to fire at any sanctimonious lefty who speaks out of turn 4 5

    I don t give 5 stars lightly This is an excellent book that details the smelting processes of the ingredients that go into a stainless steel teaspoon.There are a number of lessons here the technology involved in refining metals is complex and has evolved over thousands of years.It takes a lot of continuous energy to do so.None of the alternative energy sources like solar and wind power has the capability or capacity to smelt metals and so make a teaspoon.The kinds of people that advocate we do I don t give 5 stars lightly This is an excellent book that details the smelting processes of the ingredients that go into a stainless steel teaspoon.There are a number of lessons here the technology involved in refining metals is complex and has evolved over thousands of years.It takes a lot of continuous energy to do so.None of the alternative energy sources like solar and wind power has the capability or capacity to smelt metals and so make a teaspoon.The kinds of people that advocate we do so are and not only hypocrites but also ignorant of history and science

    Fantastic read for anyone who wants climate science explained carefully Also interesting thing I learned climate change as a term has been around since the 1800 s and was used by geologists as a term to sum up the period in which a climate changes or the changes that occur to a place in it s climate over a period of time.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book Dr Plimer has a clear understanding of both mineral extraction and the green movement and shares that information in an understandable manner with his audience I was disappointed the book lacked an index andthe proposed Keystone XL pipeline is not planned to run from Alaska.That said, this book will do little to sway any green supporter, but it will add strength to any argument exposing the irrational side of the entire global warming debate The author show I thoroughly enjoyed this book Dr Plimer has a clear understanding of both mineral extraction and the green movement and shares that information in an understandable manner with his audience I was disappointed the book lacked an index andthe proposed Keystone XL pipeline is not planned to run from Alaska.That said, this book will do little to sway any green supporter, but it will add strength to any argument exposing the irrational side of the entire global warming debate The author shows that we benefit greatly from living in a modern industrial society and the caterwauling screeds from the green are aimed at a figment of their own imagination And, listening to them is destructive to our lives He makes the point that we need to wake up and fight back if we are to end the destruction.I agree Apathy and a lack of knowledge on our part are all that lend pseudo credibility to the green rhetoric

    A good reading with quite insightful arguments I would recommend this book to those people who want to learn about the downside of radical environmentalism However, the lack of references is a big flaw, and a great deal of information needs to be constantly verified in external resources Hopefully, future editions arerigorous in this regard.
