Are we fools because we entertain the green madness? Yes, we are. No doubt. Did China laugh at us in the past for it? I am pretty sure they did as their calculation was simple. make the West uncompetitive by increasing their costs of production artificially and see everything come to China as alternative of last resort. But did it work out this way? Are the Chinese still laughing? I doubt that a lot. Because even if everything becomes more expensive, the jobs don’t go to China anymore as the mask is off. We are still fools – but we are not alone.
The rescue of the planet’s climate will make worthwhile our sacrifices in the form of higher energy prices, increased taxes to support subsidies to renewable energy, and restrictions on lifestyle.
