Green activists argue that only way to stop Catastrophic Climate Change is to completely dismantle modern industrial civilization that is powered by fossil fuel. Fossil fuel that generates CO2 emmissions the culprit behind Catastrophic Climate Change according to their theory. Skeptics argue that dismantling modern industrial civilization is like throwing the baby out with the bath water. People will no longer be able to afford to heat or light their home, transport goods and run thier factories. Denying people energy from fossil fuel would lead to econonic ruin, poverty, more infant mortality and ultimately a shortened life span. Green activists point to Solar, Wind Turbines and Bio Fuel as viable alternatives to Fossil Fuel. This is a lie. Solar, Wind Turbines and Bio Fuel are more costly, inefficient and are arguably more harmful to the environment than fossil fuel. Climate Change Is Not The Problem – Energy Poverty Is
Students in the fossil fuel divestment movement employ venom and vitriol, but little persuasive argument.
On February 24, the student association at Vassar College made an important decision. By a margin of 23-1, these young people passed a resolution urging their school to withdraw investment funds from fossil fuel companies.
According to a news report, a member of the Vassar Greens later declared that the vote
means we have the student body’s support behind us…We’re presenting this as something Vassar students want. [ellipsis in the original]
So what arguments were advanced by campus activists before this decision got made? A December 2012 opinion piece published in the student newspaper is a good place to start. Titled Vassar must take lead in fossil fuel divestment, it was written by three individuals – two co-presidents of the Vassar Greens as well as the person who appears to be the primary author…

No temp. rise in 17 years.
The Ocean is not rising from co2 emissions http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/05/14/the-beginning-of-the-end-warmists-in-retreat-on-sea-level-rise-climate-sensitivity/
No change in the frequency of droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes… (See http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/05/04/tornadoes-drop-to-new-record-alltime-low/).
Wheras the benefits of CO2 are indisputable. Without CO2 there would be no life on the planet.
So why would any one in their right might want to live in a fossil free world freezing to death because they cannot afford the high cost of “green” energy.
Limits to growth ideology a self-fulfilling prophecy
The European Union’s utopian scheme of transforming itself into a green energy powerhouse is faltering as its fantasy plan is colliding with reality. As the EU’s economic and financial crisis deepens and unemployment continues to rise, what used to be an almost all-embracing green consensus is beginning to disintegrate.
The spectre of green stagnation, the loss of competitiveness and economic decline has replaced 20 years of collective wishful thinking. The green folly was founded on two apocalyptic fears: firstly, that global warming was an urgent threat that needed to be prevented at all cost, and secondly, that the world was running out of fossil fuels, which meant that oil and gas would inexorably become ever more expensive. Both conjectures, however, turned out to be bogus.
The unpredicted arrest of the global warming trend since 1997 has made clear that the IPCC’s climate models…
