Being Green Means Never Having To Use Your Brain

ScreenHunter_516 Jan. 31 15.40

These Greenpeace activists are protesting the Four Corners Power Plant in New Mexico, and fail to notice that it isn’t dirty.

At one time (45 years ago) it was dirty, and I was one of the people fighting to get them to clean the plant up. They installed electrostatic precipitators, and now the plant delivers huge amounts of electricity to several states – with minimal pollution.

    If you have a “cause”, get a large number of brainless followers, preferably young chicks, preferably topless.

    Then, your cause can make the news.

    (I just ruined it for folks that make a living selling ads.)

    On Navajo land using Navajo coal. So they want to hurt Native Americans too. You really can’t make this stuff up.

    They are using their brains.
    Thinking, how can we win favour from those with status?
    They get some reward, albeit emotional and ephemeral…as would anyone saving the world.

    Too amazing… most of want to see these plants burning as clean as possible, fight real pollution issues… these idiots want us back in the stone age

  5. John B., M.D. says:

    One of the Science Channels had a segment (? on Modern Marvels) on those “electrostatic precipitators” – very interesting how they work.

  6. Jimmy Haigh. says:

    I call them “fossil fuel deniers”.

    Mike, they do not even make it up to the level of pothead. Potheads don’t want a life that is nasty brutal and short.

    I calculated that if we had to rely on wind mills and solar panels (that would die never to be replaced) we would be back to the level of civilization in the 1700’s if lucky. Remember no coal and no water power means no 1800 technology that relied on it. (The idiots want to remove dams and are doing so)

    How in heck do you smelt metal when all the wood has been burned for heat? We would be back to using hand crafted pins and nails as money.

      They believe the world is vastly overpopulated and that excess population is the root of all the world’s problems. Going back to a simpler, more primitive existence would reduce the excess population. If you’ve never been involved in producing your own food, making your own tools or being actively involved in scrabbling for your very existence it is easy to want to go back to that idyllic lifestyle. Besides we will need elites to guide us in this brave new world. Who else but them?

      • Don says:

        Yup. There are powerful forces that want to reduce human population to 500,000,000 and keep it there.

        • Gail Combs says:

          They want it reduced to 500,000,000 because they figure that many people will be much easier to enslave especially if they get to pick and choose who the people are.

          It is no surprise that the UK and USA is taking DNA sample of all babies and now the USA is going after samples of criminals and trading a DNA sample for no fines in drunk driving and other minor crimes.

          The US schools are also drugging any children that aren’t good little drones. One study showed “… Among elementary students, 17% of all students and 33% of white boys had been diagnosed with ADHD and the vast majority had been medicated for this condition at some time during the 1997-98 school year…” [ADHD among American Schoolchildren Evidence of Overdiagnosis and Overuse of Medication]

          Another study: [Brains of Children with ADHD Show Protein Deficiency]
          …New research on children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder has found a deficiency of a necessary brain chemical. Children with ADHD appear to have nearly 50 percent lower levels of an amino acid called tryptophan…
          The finding could suggest greater biochemical disturbances in the brains of people with ADHD than previously realized,… In this way, the new discoveries fit with previous findings that the genes identified as linked to ADHD include several that are linked with the catecholaminergic system.

          Think about it, 33% of white boys have been diagnosed as being bored silly with the dumbed down no disipline schools systems in the USA.

          [Born to Explore! The Other Side of ADD]
          “…Gifted children and adults are at high risk for being identified as ADD. Most people, including most medical professionals, do not realize giftedness is often associated with the following behaviors….

          Moreover, sometimes adults do not realize a child is gifted because they don’t really know what “gifted” means. Or they may believe a child is both ADD and gifted. As a result, many gifted children these days are being medicated for a brain defect they probably don’t have.

          Most people have an incorrect view of gifted children and adults. The “gifted” are supposed to be model students, teaching themselves how to spell and perfect their grammar, win spelling bees, have perfect social skills and become neurosurgeons. This is true of SOME gifted children and adults. Many others, however, act out and space out in boring school settings, and their increasing anger and frustration may lead to oppositional behavior and underachievement. They may have sloppy handwriting because of fast thought processes, miss details, and be unorganized and forgetful….”

          A last study: [Ritalin: Brain-Damage Evidence For Amphetamines}

          “…Repeated exposure to low-dose amphetamines can cause deficits in cognitive performance that last for several years after the exposure ends, offering insight into potential harmful effects of chronic substance abuse in humans, a Yale study has found.

          “While previous studies show that acute amphetamine injections can impair cognition, our report is the first to demonstrate long lasting-over two years-and possibly permanent cognitive deficits induced by a brief period of intermittent low-dose amphetamine exposure,” …

    Being Green means never having a brain. Period.

  9. Tel says:

    I have noticed many times Greens deliberately conflating the particulate pollution that comes from burning coal, with CO2 which is colourless and odourless. For example, they will point to the problems China is having and pretend this is a CO2 related issue (mind you, China also has cheap electricity and could EASILY afford to install particular filters if they wanted to).

    Just like the way they deliberately conflate steam with smoke in photographs by trying to catch the sun behind it.

  10. Pathway says:

    But it they close the power plant all that great bass fishing in the effluent pond will go away.
    Also, not the huge number of participants.

  11. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    The irony now is if there’s a lot of wind energy in an area, and the coal fired power station has to load level, the electrostatic precips probably won’t work as well. You want the gas rate through them nice and steady to get maximum performance, otherwise you’ll tend to get puffs of particulates out your stack.

    So green energy makes coal plants dirtier. If they turned of the wind turbines the perfomance would most likely improve.

  12. Gail Combs says:

    I wonder if that is the same ten PAID Activists that showed up with the inflatable pipeline during Obummers Speachifying?

  13. darrylb says:

    Gail, I do believe our current science czar is a closet eugenicist. It is quite obvious in his book co-written with Erlich.
    Second thought—Have you ever noticed that pictures are taken of emissions from coal plants, of which the only thing visible is water vapor condensed into clouds. The pictures are back lit by sunlight to make the water appear very dark.
