Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2021-185: Guilty As Charging

One of the most consistent qualities of the Proregressives* is their need to project.  If you are my age and are having memory problems or if you did not pay attention in your pop-psychology classes, projection is the habit of taking your secret thoughts and biases and laying them on others.  One of the best examples was Hillary calling out the “Vast right wing conspiracy” which did not exist on the right but was a daily experience for the left.

So I would like to point out that the constant chorus of “racism” and “white supremacy” is actually the kind of attitude that exists in the elites of the left.  This came to mind as I was reading an article from The American Thinker about how the white liberals in charge of major power-blocks are working to ban fossil fuels in Africa.  CEO’s of banks and government agencies are demanding that the only new power sources allowed in Africa be green energy.  Green energy is something that only rich people can afford since it is so expensive.  

One paragraph sets the stage for the need,

“One fifth of the world's population lives in Africa, but the continent accounts for less than  one twenty-fifth of global electricity use.  Around 600 million in Africa have no electricity.”
No electricity means that Africa will remain at the bottom of the barrel.  It can be as mild as not being able to use an electric can opener to death by starvation.

Then the wonderful people who are causing this.
“The biggest setback to Africa's fossil ambitions came from the major banking institutions and other big funding entities, which have decided to stop funding for fossil fuel projects internationally.”
My guess is that these are mainly run by white men.  Any women or minorities are most likely tokens.  If you read the article you will find that one country is working hard to supply the energy needed:  China.

So we see another case of projection.  The left yells “racist” and then does everything it can to keep Africa a third world poverty site.

homo unius libri


  1. As you and others have pointed out, banning fossil fuels can be harmful among underdeveloped people groups. It is also foolish to do it anywhere. This is because most of the greenhouse gas inventory comes from natural sources. Let me present the rough numbers:
    1) Water is a greenhouse gas. On average, earth has ~1% water vapor in the atmosphere. 99.99+% of this comes from natural sources.
    2) CO2 is a greenhouse gas. We have ~415 ppmv in our atmosphere. According to a table issued by the USDOE, 96+% of our CO2 comes from natural sources.
    3) N2O and CH4 are the next largest components of our greenhouse gas envelope, at ~2 ppmv and 1 ppmv respectively. >90% of both of these come from natural sources.
    4) To obtain common units of measure, 1% = 10,000 ppmv.
    This all means that H2O is 96% of our greenhouse gas inventory, and it is all natural. Combining all of these, taking the 'Global Warming Factor' of each gas into account, you wind up with the shocking news that 99.7% of all earth's greenhouse gases come from natural sources. Don't take my word on this - ask any degreed climatologist (who's not afraid of losing tenure or funding.)
    Bottom line - There is nothing that humanity can do to make any measurable change to the amount of greenhouse gases around us. Nothing.

    1. There you go using facts again. That is cruel to the feelings of the triggered. You should not be ashamed of yourself.

      Grace and peace
