Doubling down on the truth

I honestly wonder how long it will be until the majority of Americans finally see the hypocrisy of this federal government. I wish to be very clear that this is not a statement of the current Biden issues; it has been happening for so long we now just take for granted that is the way it will always be.

Our daily deluge of nonsense about climate crisis caused by mankind and the most essential of all elements, carbon dioxide, continues to increase to a loud, fake roar. I encourage you to look at data from John Clauser, an American physicist and recent Nobel Peace Prize award winner who put it all into context. Globalists, in my opinion, want to restrict our food, fuel, economy and transportation by demonizing CO2. They attempt to blame the 12% of the earth surface that grows food.

Meanwhile, we forget that 71% of the earth’s surface is covered with water. Of that water, 3% is fresh water and 68% of that fresh water is off limits to us because it is trapped in glaciers or ice caps. But what about the 71% of the water that absorbs a third of all CO2 for the benefit of earth? Not to mention that the ocean also forms clouds which are the unsung hero of life on earth.

Clauser’s Nobel Prize in 2022 was on his work in quantum physics. His comments:

“I raced across the Pacific Ocean at least a dozen times. I had set up the boat with solar panels to charge the batteries. I had an ammeter on the power output from the solar panels, and I noticed every time we sailed under a cloud, the output from the solar panels dropped by 50% to half of its value that it was, and then we came out from behind the cloud and boom, their power went back up. And I thought, I wonder why it is just about a factor of two.”

Which brings me to my next bit of government hypocrisy. Everyone is pretty well aware of the taxpayer’s money we are throwing at intermittent solar energy. It turns out that Clauser also shares the role of the clouds is to turn 90% of the sun’s energy back into the atmosphere.

With that knowledge from a Nobel Prize winning physicist, here is the July 2023 White House announcement:

June 7, 2023 As part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $52 million for 19 selected projects, including $10 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to strengthen America’s domestic solar supply chain, and $30 million in funding for technologies that will help integrate solar energy into the grid. The research, development, and demonstration projects aim to enhance domestic solar manufacturing, support the recycling of solar panels, and develop new American-made solar technologies. 

And two weeks later they released this:

June 30, 2023 On Friday, the White House released a federally mandated report on solar geoengineering, which is an umbrella term that describes methods of reflecting sunlight away from the earth to cool the atmosphere.

I am back to where I started. How long will the clear-thinking American public put up with this? How can the government pay to both capture solar and deflect solar without people questioning their sanity?

In closing, the great food for thought shared by Clauser clearly must be: 

Just a 5% rise in cloud cover can largely counterbalance the temperature effect of doubling atmospheric CO2.

We need to return the nation to a doubling down on the truth of this healthy planet we live on. Call your federal reps and tell them to stop this insanity.
