I have been fighting for open space and wilderness since I was 15 years old, when I testified at my first Congressional hearing in support of a wilderness area in Utah. I have also worked as a wilderness ranger for the US Forest Service.
“Green energy” has very low energy density, so it necessarily involves destruction of huge areas of open space and thus is very destructive to wildlife and the environment.
By contrast, coal has very high energy density, and thus is much less destructive the environment.
The global warming scam is being used to make environmentalists self-destruct.
