“The upcoming United Nations green summit in Rio de Janeiro is in trouble—and with good reason…. “

” …The trouble is that almost every aspect of modern civilization is powered by fossil fuels. How can we expect the world to give them up without a cheaper alternative?… “

” …We hear plenty of hype about climate-change “solutions” like solar panels and biofuels, but these green technologies are not yet the answer. As long as wind turbines and solar panels remain more expensive than fossil fuels while working only intermittently, they will never contribute much to our energy supply…. “

Unfortunately Bjorn still believes “The Science” – OOPs!
