World Energy Policies A Minefield. That is the conclusion reached by seasoned energy analyst Gail Tverberg after asking the question: Do the World’s Energy Policies Make Sense? The article title is a link to her post at her blog Our Finite World. Excerpts in italics with my bolds. The world today has a myriad of energy policies. One of them seems to be to encourage renewables, especially wind and solar. Another seems to encourage electric cars. A third seems to be to try to move away from fossil fuels. Europe and others have been trying carbon taxes. Maybe it is time to step back and take a look. Let’s look at some of the issues involved. [1] We have had very little success in reducing CO2 emissions.

CO2 emissions for all countries, in total, have been spiraling upward, year after year. If we look at the situation by part of the world, we see an even more concerning pattern. The group US+EU+Japan has been able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 5% since 2005. This rapidly growing population feeds into the CO2 problem as well. Developing nations latest decade of energy & emissions growth torpedoes alarmist global emissions control scam. Guest essay by Larry Hamlin The UN has been pursuing global emissions policy for decades that are intended to provide for the establishment of global government schemes allowing it to control world emissions. No fewer than 24 United Nations Climate Change Conferences have been held at various global locations since 1995 under its Conference of the Parties (COP) legal framework. COP 21 which occurred in November and December 2015 in Paris resulted in the creation of the Paris Agreement that supposedly established global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit future global temperatures that the UN based upon projections from climate models that grossly exaggerate the impact of greenhouse gases on world temperatures.

Three additional UN climate conferences have occurred since the Paris Agreement with the last conference being in 2018 in Poland. Additionally the U.S. under President Trump wisely withdrew from the Paris Agreement in June of 2017. Like this: Like Loading...
