When a solution to a problem requires further taxing of your money and more centralization of authoritarian government (Latin - mind control), that 'problem' was more than likely made up and doesn't exist.
Such as the 'problem' of human caused global warming by carbon emissions.
environmental 'scare' of the world ending because of carbon dioxide is
likely a scam as the solution to this involves another layer of taxes on
the population. It doesn't help developing countries still dependent on
diesel and other fossil fuels and doesn't help the overall situation of
global poverty by charging developing nations for 'excess' carbon
The move to reduce greenhouse gases also shows the limited in-the-box thinking of the 'scientific' institutions civilization has entrusted its progress to. All about increasing the efficiency of machines that modern civilization depends on to function - by less than 1% at most, or by removing those that are still essential for a country's manufacturing sector.
The problem is these engines are still running on fossil fuels. The amount of energy released per unit weight for fossil fuel is low by today's standards. The last industrial revolution was the indirect result of machines moving from coal and steam to diesel and petrol/gasoline.
When machines moved from coal to diesel, trains and ships could travel further and faster, and became cleaner and more efficient.
We are long overdue for the next industrial revolution that will come about with moving from petroleum fuels to a more powerful and usable fuel source that would make demanding industrial applications such as desalination plants more economically viable, as well as produce enough energy per weight of fuel to make electricity too cheap to be metered for domestic use.
