International Energy Agency Declares War on Energy

Our leftist overlords intend to have us freezing in the dark, without transportation and without jobs. From their flagship publication, the New York Times, via MSN:

Investment in new oil and natural gas projects must stop from today, and sales of gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles must halt from 2035. These are some of the milestones that the International Energy Agency said Tuesday must be achieved for the global energy industry to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The goal of net-zero carbon emissions is insane. To achieve it would require total collapse of the global economy. Hundreds of millions of people would die. No one would notice an effect on the climate, which is not a problem anyway. What leftists mean to impose is tyranny for its own sake, on a level that dwarfs Mao, Stalin, and Pol Pot.

These conclusions seem surprisingly stark for the agency, a multilateral group whose main mandate is helping ensure energy security and stability. But it has increasingly embraced a role in combating climate change under its executive director, Fatih Birol.

Yet another institution has been subverted by radical leftists. The last thing they want is energy security. They don’t like it that you have gas in your car and that the lights come on when you flip the switch. That gives you too much control over your own life.

The agency acknowledges that the disruption for the global energy sector, which produces three-quarters of greenhouse gas emissions, could threaten five million jobs.

Actually, it threatens all jobs, except of course government jobs. There is no way a modern economy can be supported by the minuscule and sporadic energy produced by wind turbines and solar panels. When leftists choke off the energy supply, as Biden’s handlers have already begun to do, everything will collapse. That’s the point. John Kerry and friends call it the Great Reset.

Yet the NY Times ends with this:

At the same time, Mr. Birol said, there would be major economic benefits from the trillions of dollars in investment in wind, solar and other sources of renewable energy. Doing so could create 30 million jobs, and add 0.4 percent year to world economic growth, he said.

Replacing efficient, reliable energy with inefficient, unreliable energy will generate less wealth. This will result in fewer jobs and economic decline. This is not debatable. To say otherwise is not wishful thinking. It is an arrogant lie. They believe us to be either stupid or powerless to stop them.

On a tip from Mr. Freemarket.
