Germany is a excellent example of what happens when ideology is allowed to run amok.
Without intelligent analysis, without open debate they committed to becoming the Worlds first Nation powered exclusively by " renewable energy sources.".
They shut down their Nuke plants and spent hundreds of Billions of dollars building Solar power plants and building Wind turbines to power their grid.
Renewable energy sources of-course have to be heavily subsidized and its the consumers who've had to bear those massive cost increases as they currently pay over 300 percent more than the average American for their electricity.
Their own Finance minister came out last year and publicly declared their " Energy revolution " as a total failure.
Since Solar and Wind are susceptible to inherent lags the German Government has had to build new Coal fired ( lignite ) power plants and now they rely more on Coal than their " clean energy " solutions for their electricity.
What that means is the German citizens pay 300 percent more for their electricity and their air is dirtier than it was prior to Merkel shutting down their nuke plants.
Global warming is proven with Computer models built with fudged data and processes that have nothing to do with " Science ".
"Homogenizing " ( manipulating ) temperature data to arrive at a predetermined conclusion is not Science, its fraud.
Science involves the objective and honest analysis of EMPERICAL data. What Federal agencies like the NOAA have done is to ignore those basic standards. They've replaced them with arbitrary standards and processes that always back their predetermined conclusions
" Homogenized " temperature data always seems to prove that the Globe is warming.
