Mark Perry writes:

“According to new forecasts out to the year 2040 by the Energy Information Administration in its just-released Annual Energy Outlook 2015, fossil fuels (coal, natural gas and oil) will continue to supply more than 81% of the energy consumed in the US for at least the next quarter century. And for all of the hype about renewable energy and substantial taxpayer subsidies, renewables (hydropower, biomass, solar and wind) will only supply slightly more energy in 2040 as a share of the total (9.5%) than in 1949 (9.3%).”

It’s just another fuel cell for the fear-economy, warming a Judas Goat – those animals they train to associate with the herd and then lead the lambs to the slaughterhouse (read: you and me).
