I have a question.

If global warming is fake, how come those glaciers are shrinking?
so does the Arctic ice?

Questions here, too. If Algore is an environmentalist, why was he
spending over $30,000 a year to heat and cool his home? And if his
movie was realistic, why did the Brits ban it from showing in UK
schools? And if polar bears were drowning, why didn't they just move
with the ice? P.S: Algore finally admitted that was entirely
and that he made up the polar bear story. Then again, I just saw
another picture of a dead polar bear captioned on yet another AGWK
story recently. sigh They just don't get it.

Now, your answer:

Check the rest of the Earth. When one area loses ice, ice builds in
another area. It happens the same way each year with the seasons,
that's called "weather", which is what people are reacting to.
is between ice ages and will continue to warm (or remain stable like
the past decade+) until the next ice age.

Also see these books:

which first led me to question the media and global alarmists.

I watched a video about a farmhouse downlight(?) of a wind turbine. It
reminded me of a 3 y/o kid finding the light switch in the room for
the first time, turning it on and off every second for an hour.

That's a case where I think the economics favor grid power, because
the high cost and limited cycle life of vented deep-cycle batteries.

That it does, but what happens when (not if) the grid goes tits-up?

We return to the 1800's and DIY steam power, the Good Old Days.

But steam power is used today too, especially with driving the mechanics of stators and armatures in hydrocarbon or nuclear fired power plants (as opposed to diesel electric in use with ships and rail or with gas electric powering things like alternators. Now, I haven't heard of hydrocarbon 'directly' firing pistons to drive phased electrical distribution without steam driving the mechanics instead, but I guess its been tried before. Maybe I'm wrong).
