I wonder....should we tell the greenies what kind of hell they are producing? You know....those people who are indoctrinating our children about how fossil fuels are killing the planet and how Mommy and Daddy are very bad people for driving their mini-van in the carpool to school. Let's see..if a rainforest is decimated by idiots, does a person with a brain get to sentence them to life in the sahara without water. It's kind of like getting a hair cut. If it turns out badly, you can't have the barber put it back. The damage these idiots are doing to the planet in the name of "saving the planet" is enough to make me want to punish them severely....maybe 1000 years in the clinker, tie them up to one of those blades on the damn windmills for 100 years, or maybe stick them in a small room with a thousand broken compact fluorescent light bulbs. The problem is, you can lead an idiot to the truth, but you can't make them understand it.

So, today, after the last few months of revelations of fraud in the "Global Warming / Climate Change" scam, now we have the Brits explaining how bio-fuels are so much worse for the planet than fossil fuels. They have also found that prior studies on this were faked, twisted, manipulated, and generally full fledged lies in order to prop up the bio-fuel businesses. Gee...do ya think? How does that translate to Al Gore and his cute little carbon trading investments? I'll let you figure that out.

From the TIMES Online in the UK

"Most companies met part of their biofuel obligation by buying palm oil, one of the cheapest fuels but potentially the most damaging to the environment because of the carbon released when forest is burnt down to create plantations. Expansion of the industry has made Indonesia the third-largest CO2 emitter after China and the US. A litre of palm oil produced on land converted from Indonesian forest produces roughly three times as much CO2 as ordinary diesel."

And: Another article from the TIMES Online in the UK

"Clearing rainforest for biofuel plantations releases carbon stored in trees and soil. It takes up to 840 years for a palm oil plantation to soak up the carbon emitted when the rainforest it replaced was burnt. Biofuels are worse for the environment than fossil fuels.

News flash: Your SUV is not to blame for a fictional global disaster. But the environmentalistas are to blame for some very real environmental disasters. There has to be some Freudian psychology behind this, but there isn't an insane-asylum big enough to house this many idiots.


  1. Carl...I know you have to think I am the most dimwitted idiot...because I did it once more...pushed the wrong button again. I could make all kinds of excuses...I'm exhausted, head spinning, we called in Hospice for my 92 yr. old Dad this week, entered an art show, worried about daughter who lost her Bank of America job last year, but just was hired back, reading until my eyes bleed about current events and history, and the rest of the on and on and.....so there are my excuses. Yikes.
    Anyway, I am once again typing up your comment..and then I will comment separately.

    Carl said,
    Hey Cheryl,
    I have a question for you. Is the Times comparing the production "and" use emissions of bio to fossil fuels?
    I wanted to tell you that through email and my sites there are many people who have told me they have called or written their respective senators on the agriculture bill. I also printed it and brought it to work. People there were dumbfounded because they had not heard of it. Of course I have referred everyone to your site with glowing reference...I only mentioned that you were bright, creative, honest, passionate, articulate, and a wonderful painter? :) I didn't want to influence them much! :)
    Take good care,

  2. O.K...doing some more research, it looks to me as if the environmental impact of bio-fuels is the main culprit. The same can be said of the infernal windmills and the CFL - lightbulbs, by the way. They are wrecking the environment in worse ways by doing these things, thereby completely lacking in the integrity of their own arguments. (manufacturing CFL's causing the release of mercury and killing chinese workers. It takes more energy to build those damn windmills than they will ever produce.

    From George Monbiot, 2005

    "In 2003, the biologist Jeffrey Dukes calculated that the fossil fuels we burn in one year were made from organic matter “containing 44 x 10 to the 18 grams of carbon, which is more than 400 times the net primary productivity of the planet’s current biota.”(1) In plain English, this means that every year we use four centuries’ worth of plants and animals.
    The idea that we can simply replace this fossil legacy - and the extraordinary power densities it gives us - with ambient energy is the stuff of science fiction.
    Before oil palms, which are small and scrubby, are planted, vast forest trees, containing a much greater store of carbon, must be felled and burnt. Having used up the drier lands, the plantations are now moving into the swamp forests, which grow on peat. When they’ve cut the trees, the planters drain the ground. As the peat dries it oxidizes, releasing even more carbon dioxide than the trees. In terms of its impact on both the local and global environments, palm biodiesel is more destructive than crude oil from Nigeria."

    So Carl...the question I have is why, in God's name, have the scientists and press ignored this and not been screaming at the top of their lungs to warn the public? My guess is politics. And political correctness. You get your head chopped off if you dare to speak out against the cap and trade crowd or the "Climate Change" crowd. You get your head chopped off if you dare to speak the truth that there is no equal replacement for fossil fuels as yet. The bio-fuel industry has done a lot of damage, both to the food supplies / costs,etc. and the damage to forests in asia and South America. All because of lies about the environment. It makes me sooooo mad I could just ....hmmmm...can't think of anything vehement enough to describe what I would like to do.

    I hope you and all of your friends can get some attention on that agriculture bill. I do know the health food, natural vitamins and supplements industries are trying to stop it.

    About your sweet compliments....you are so nice to say those things. I needed to hear them today. :) I promise my I won't get a big head from them...:)

  3. Carl...I googled this: bio fuels worse than fossil fuels. Do that and you will find all the articles I found. Blogger won't let me paste links in this comment section. Some of the articles address your question about emissions...that emissions are also worse with some of the bio fuels. Algae uses water resources we can't afford to lose and causes higher greenhouse emissions than fossil fuels. All of the bio fuels cost bio-diversity losses and destruction of land and forests.
