Interestingly, our air is cleaner now than it’s ever been and we have more energy than we've ever had, but the Obama administration is reducing our fuel sources to green energy. Green energy is fine as long as other people are paying for it. In Missouri, the demand for solar panels dried up as soon as the subsidy for them disappeared. California has mandated renewable energy, and their electric rates are already three times higher than ours and will climb another 46 percent. Is this what we want?
Concerning climate change, the majority of forecast calamities over the past half century including acid rain, the "population bomb," killer bees and the ozone hole have proved to be only moderate concerns. But they did produce one thing — funding. So now climate change is the new calamity — and funding source.
