ZEITGEIST: Renewable Energy, a Paradigm Shift and the Climate-Industrial Complex

By Alain Prud'homme

Although I am no eco warrior, environmentalist or survivalist my interest in renewable energy started a long time ago when the cost of renewable energy was extremely prohibitive.

My interest in renewable home energy is purely a selfish one; I want to retain as much of my earnings as possible and to spend it as want to. And I ultimately want to be able to live off the grid, which means no longer paying ever-increasing electricity bills.

To that end, I search out all the latest technological advances that could be utilise to reduce one's energy requirements without reducing one's personal comfort. The funny thing is that some of the so-called new ideas are actually quite ancient whilst others are cutting edge.

Amongst others, these include the following; passive solar energy, hot water heating solar panels, electricity generating solar panels (Photovoltaic cells), electricity generating wind turbines for the home, zero point magnetic power generators, house design, calculating your energy requirements and energy storage including battery types.

I'll start with an explanation of where I stand on some of the issue that in effect affect the above.

My paradigm or worldview provides me with a framework to organize new thoughts and information. This is how we all "make sense of the world around us." Our paradigms filter out what doesn't fit from our worldview. However it appears that for some reason or other we cannot seem to be able to learn what doesn't conform to our paradigm and because of this, our paradigms can either liberate us or imprison us, depending on how true to our reality they are.

My paradigm has shifted many times in the past. At times the shift is slow and gradual, whilst at other times the shift has been rather sudden and violent. Some 13-years or so ago I had a series of paradigm shifts. I have always been an avid reader and to some extent I have always known that governments, religion, mainstream media, big business and the education system were actively sabotaging society.

With these paradigm shifts I learned not to ever take anything for granted, to cross reference any story, to see through the propaganda and most crucially to follow the money i.e. who benefits.

Repeatedly, through time, some grand fraud or other is concocted by the unholy alliance of governments, religion, mainstream media, big business and the education system, each with its own agenda and vested interest.

This unholy partnership of self interested businesses, so-called scientists, grandstanding politicians, alarmist campaigners and a main stream media pushing their sponsors agendas provide a new twist on a very old practice; companies and individuals using public policy to line their own pockets.

This loose grouping, to put them in the same category as the military-industrial complex, can I supposed, be called the climate-industrial complex. A grouping that does not promote any discussion or free thoughts on environmental matters but will attack and vilify any detractor or person not on message. They would really make the Spanish Inquisition proud by their labelling of any and all dissenters as heretics.

This loose grouping however have their own vested interests and agendas and will at times work against each other, which in my mind is a blessing in disguise.

For the last few years, they've been trying to terrorize us into accepting that human society was on the brink of extinction because of man-made global warming. We are warned that, unless we take drastic action to reverse it - then islands will disappear, whole cities will be destroyed and polar bears will drown. However, when the universe conspired against global warmist's by giving us rather cool summers and a really long and cold winter it quickly became climate change.

The B-B-Q summer predicted by the Met Office for the British Isle certainly did not materialise. The weather conspired against predictions of their £33 million computer. As they say garbage in, garbage out. It's a simple equation.

Climate change has occurred long before man made his apparition on this planet and will continue to do so long after we will disappear from this earth. As this planet has been considerably hotter and colder than it is at the moment, is it not rather egotistical of man to assume that he has an effect upon the earth's temperature?

Global warming / climate change is being discredited almost on a daily basis and the faithful are slowly dissipating. The word "faithful" is the only word one can use for a movement that had taken a religious like fervour and works such as heretic and blasphemy used against those who wanted to debate the issues or simply did not believe.

With each deathblow to this false religion, the climate-industrial complex along with complicit governments has less and less authority in their appropriation of our wealth. And they know it. But it won't stop them from trying it on.

I only wish that the environment movement had not hitched their wagon so firmly to this scam as they too will loose credibility along with those of the climate-industrial complex. Governments as we know are not included as politicians hardly have a shred of credibility left at all.

For me the use of micro-generation of renewable energy, either through the use of photovoltaic cells, wind power or zero point magnetic power generators, opens the road to individual freedom.

Alain Prud'homme is write about the issues surrounding the micro-generation of renewable energy for homes as well as on the contentious and controversial issues surrounding global warming and climate change. You can find more resources at
