Free Market Solution to Climate Change

Free Market Solution to Climate Change

Regardless of if you’re a climate change denier or someone who chains themselves to a tree every Arbor Day, one thing is for sure: the world would be better without fossil fuel dependency.

Whether our oil lust forces us to tolerate terrorist funding regimes like Saudi Arabia or spend fortunes cleaning up environmental catastrophes like the BP pipeline explosion, it’s hard to be in the oil business without getting your hands dirty.

Republicans who are in the pocket of the oil industry want to pretend nothing is wrong. Democrats, drunk off their own failed ideology, just look at every conflict as a way to increase taxes and restrict rights.

With Washington not helping anyone – go figure – there is only one solution: throw the problem to the free market.

This is where Impact Analytics CEO Tim Kaelin comes into play.

A professional engineer and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operative, Kaelin has developed a plan to end the United States’ dependency on fossil fuel, removing a major source of CO2 generation. He proposes the development of a massive “farmer’s market” for solar energy generation located on 2500 square miles of federal land, possibly in such sunny and land rich states as Arizona, Nevada or Utah. In addition to the local climate, the western site is an ideal location to connect to the three major American electrical grids.

Kaelin said that such a large section of land is not unreasonable when you consider that it would initially provide approximately 10 percent of the energy needs for the entire United States and force down the price of solar panels to a fraction of its current price. Further energy needs of the United States can be met by additional solar “markets” and universal “net- metering” that would allow an internet-style network of individual power producers.

Rather than building such a solar infrastructure as a public works project, Kaelin sees it being created through thousands of private investments. The government’s role would be largely limited to land acquisition, transmission lines and some oversight. The more than nine billion initial solar panels needed would be manufactured in the United States, and the inertia of the project will produce 3 to 5 million jobs over the next 10 to 15 years.

Kaelin’s concept is detailed in his book, The Energy Net – A free enterprise solution to our economy, racial Islam and climate change built by all of America (written under the nom de plume of Joseph A. Gilbertson).

Tim Kaelin will be a presenter at the Tenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses in Berkeley, California, where world scientists will gather to address a range of issues dealing with climate change and mankind’s impact.

    How exactly is this a “Free Market” solution to our energy dilemma? Solar has enormous subsidies, which by the way are paid by TAXPAYERS to develop their projects. Solar only works about 1/2 the time, so you still need power plants fueled by coal, natural gas or oil to back them up 24/7/365. The land is held in public trust and transmission costs are enormous, probably also going to paid by the taxpayer or ratepayer. “Green energy” is a myth perpetrated by the left to bring down the economy of the west, and after 40+ years of it, it almost won But there is no longer leftists in power to keep up the fraud.

      “But there is (SIC) no longer leftists in power…”

      I don’t want to level any accusations of self-delusion. I’ll just point out that it’s unseemly to whistle loudly alongside graveyards.

    The solar farm concept will work fine, if it can switch to a lunar farm from dusk to dawn.
