Renewable Energy in Decline
The real harm to the environment is not Fossil Fuel it is Wind and Solar which should be stopped immediately. Just look at the land use issues involved in current wind and solar energy initiatives in the US for example. They are so horrific that they might be accurately described as a war on nature. If one does the math the US would have to dedicate 500,000+ square miles or approx. 15% of her entire land mass to solar to provide all of the US energy needs. Wind is no better. Wind energy providers in the US provide between 25 and 50 acre buffer zones for each wind mill and many of these wind farms are gobbling up prime farmland in the process; reducing America’s ability to produce food. Bottom line wind and solar are not ready for primetime; Kill thousands of birds, bats and eagles and Devastate the once idyllic deserts of California and Arizona where birds are literally burned alive in flight http://www.examiner.com/article/green-energy-solar-farm-cooks-birds-mid-flight over the vast array of solar panels that scar the Desert. Anti fossil fuel activists like President Obama, Tom Steyer and Tim Cook need to stop their war on fossil fuel and the devastation to Nature and Humanity caused by Wind and Solar they are advocating in the name of “saving the planet from climate change”.
Climate Change Is Not The Problem. Fuel Poverty Is. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/03/15/james-hansens-policies-are-shafting-the-poor/
Higher Fuel Prices = More Poor People = More Children Dying.

The global energy outlook has changed radically in just six years. President Obama was elected in 2008 by voters who believed we were running out of oil and gas, that climate change needed to be halted, and that renewables were the energy source of the near future. But an unexpected transformation of energy markets and politics may instead make 2014 the year of peak renewables.
