Also Skeptical of Renewables' Potential in Power Grid


Former Dancing With the Stars contestant and current Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has signaled his disagreement with experts everywhere as it pertains to climate change and it’s causes, The Hill reports.

“Asked by CNBC if he believes carbon dioxide is “the primary control knob for the temperature of the Earth and for climate,” Perry said no, and that “most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment we live in.”

Also, according to Salon, Perry “is cooking up a case to stifle further federal support of renewable wind and solar energy. He’s ordered a dubiously sourced staff study that is aimed to paint renewables as an unreliable source for the nation’s electric grid.
