Do you think Dox would have changed his position on "green energy" if he could?
For those unfamiliar with the Dox Paradox, it involved the idea that non-polluting, renewable energy could be competitive with oil, coal, and natural gas. All we had to do was raise the price of everything we burn today.
OK, so in his defense (and to my knowledge), he never claimed that "green" energy would be cheap he only claimed that we'd be better off if we switched.
And that's where any defense of Dox and his idiotic supporters must end because not only does "green" energy not take into account all the polluting, environment raping it takes to get "green," which means there's no evidence we'd be better off, but he failed to realize that niche environmentalists weren't going to simply step aside and allow, for example, wanton bird slaughter as the price for more wind power. or even solar farms which must be located somewhere – which includes anywhere but in America.
So it might not even be a year since I had to forcibly remove Dox from my neighborhood because I could no longer deal with stupidity that I felt would be terminal, and we now know for certain that Greens are blue about future prospects. Not only is wind energy not going anywhere, but the green flagship, ethanol, is mired in controversy, and when it becomes un-mired, it will become the proper subject of mockery ridicule it deserves to be, as well as a prime example of what happens when the free market is artificially manipulated by Dox-like people in government.
But don't get me wrong, I wanted Dox to be right. I just didn't think we could change the laws of physics enough to make that possible. So it's wind – no, ethanol – no, solar – no, electric cars – no, global warming – no, and Dox – hell no!
