It's a carbon economy, stupid!

As G20 week unfolds in faraway London and the politicians and leaders gather to discuss the world economy, it might be appropriate of me to remind them that our economy is essentially based on carbon (coal) and hydrocarbons (oil, gas). Without our dependence on carbon-based fuel then civilization as we know it is not going to survive.

Idealists may not like a dependence on carbon-based fuels but they would soon understand my (and many others like me) concerns that the politics of the day are moving ever closer to calamity. Under the disguise of a "new religion" called global warming, those who would control the rest of us believe they have found a solution in environmentalism.

Don't be fooled. This is a red herring.

Stay tuned.
