    Theyre not BS links, they provide important fact based contradictions to the climate change lies thats sweeping the world right now.

    Even if you want to deny all of climate change science, That's fine. I am just puzzled why you would be so antagonistic toward cleaner energy taking off as an important sector of economic growth. If it is, would you consider it something bad?It's like you WANT energy to be dirty and polluting.

    It's all just so odd and puzzling.

    I like clean energy. I don't like dirty and polluting propaganda disguised as research or argumentation.

    The wind farm outside of my hometown has definitely helped the local economy.

    This is where those many years of building up alarmism pays off - get 'em so scared they would actually believe an article like this
    Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!

    So do you think the following is "utopian thinking" that ignores reality too?

    "Projections" from over two years ago, so who cares?

    Why? Has something changed in the last 2 years? From just a few months ago:
    Renewable Energy Job Boom Creates Economic Opportunity As Coal Industry Slumps

    Why are you so hostile to the idea of economic growth from green energy? It's like you just really don't want it to be true. It is soooo odd and puzzling.

    These are eye-catching percentage growth numbers because they start from a very small base. And btw, your link is to an advocacy organization.
    I'm not hostile to economic growth from green energy. I'm hostile to statistical trickery in the service of issue advocacy.

    So how is that different from economic growth in any sector?

    And btw, your link is to an advocacy organization.

    This is common knowledge, at least outside of WUWT.
