Warren Buffet, the Kochs, and the War on Buggy Whips

April 4, 2016

Climate deniers are fighting the equivalent of a war in defense of buggy whips, typewriters, and muzzle loaders.

    Hundreds (thousands) of Nevada solar customers came out and said: we were promised subsidies to be paid by the non-solar, non-early-adopters. Now that we are so many, you seem to think it unreasonable the burden we’ve placed on the non-solar, non-early-adopters. We think (entirely up-side-down) that if you expand the subsidies, and bring more moochers into the system (more people selling a solar kW, at High-noon in Nevada, at 3X what they buy it for after the sun goes down – generated from fossil fuels), it will make things right for everyone.

    I’m dubious of this thinking.

      Actually, Ron, you probably meant to use the word “skeptical” in that last sentence, although “dubious” IS an apt word to describe your thought processes and knowledge base. Why don’t you go back to to your home at WUWT where you can communicate with others as “dubious” as yourself?

      • Tom Bates Says:

        Dubious means skeptical “not to be relied upon; suspect”.

        • dumboldguy Says:

          Master Bates, you are not any smarter than Ron, apparently, or you have been living up to your name and doing “you know what” too much and it has affected your brain (as your mother warned you it would).

          One who is characterized as being “dubious”, as I did with Ron, is one who is—-“suspicious, suspect, untrustworthy, unreliable, questionable, shady, or fishy” in nature.

          One who is “skeptical” is “doubtful, doubting; cynical, distrustful, mistrustful, suspicious, disbelieving, unconvinced, incredulous, scoffing, pessimistic, or defeatist”.

          Dubious does NOT mean skeptical.

      Nevada not known for sunlight. I’m with you: Nevada should at least wait until Lake Mead run out of water before taking CC seriously.

    • So. You believe in monopolies and oligarchy, and you don’t believe in the free market. And I bet you call yourself a Republican. Gotcha.

  3. Tom Bates Says:

    All this solar panel stuff is a distraction from reality of the actual temperature change. Per the UAH and RSS data the world has not warmed in almost two decades. Spending two to three times the cost for other sources of power to solve a non existent problem seems to be both a waste of time and a waste of resources.

    • ubrew12 Says:

      “… seems to be… a waste of time and… resources”. The data-sewage Rupurt Murdoch and the Koch Brothers successfully fed you is certainly a waste of ‘something’.

    • petersjazz Says:

      First, how can 2015 be the warmest year on record and 14 of 15 warmest years is from year 2000, thats the trend.
      Then about the cost, fossil fuel is cheep mainly because it is not paying its external costs.

    • No Tom Bates, it’s called CAPITALISM. Poor utilities are having a hard time competing, so they go crying to the government to sue for their right to crush any competition. But you’re a free market guy, I’m sure.

  4. More roughage and Castor oil please

    Funny the woman say that the sun is the biggest nulear reactor in the universee. Maybe she should fact check that, there are a lot of stars that are bigger!

  6. indy222 Says:

    Wow, Bates – you must value your integrity pretty damn cheap. To utter such temperature idiocy on this board. Hope the shill money they pay you is just compensation for being such a worm.

  7. John Havens Says:

    These poor Nevadan solar users do have an option now, unfortunately, it requires another sizable investment. That would be to go entirely off grid with the new battery back up systems and let the Nevada PUC figure out how to tax people who don’t need them the grid any longer.
