Patrick Michaels takes apart Al Gore’s recent call for a national project to convert our entire electrical generation infrastructure to non-fossil fuel sources in ten years.
Here’s how Gore works. He’ll cite one scientific finding that shows what he wants, and then ignore other work that provides important context.
On point after point, Michaels shows how Gore’s exaggerated claims fail the test of truth. Gore has a pre-determined outcome in view (centralized economic planning), and he cherry picks the data to support that outcome.
There is no doubt that mankind will someday wean ourselves off fossil fuels. But I have much more confidence in free market forces to accomplish that feat, than in Gore’s ability to build a government bureaucracy to do it.
