That's actually one of only two statements in the article that I would take issue with.
I can only guess that the statement that "once energy is spent, it cannot be renewed" is a paraphrase of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Unfortunately, the first and second laws of thermodynamics only apply in a closed system. Earth is not a closed system.
Now, I'm not advocating "renewable" energy. There are all kinds of problems with "renewables", not least of which is that there is not enough concentrated and usable energy in "renewables" to come close to meeting our needs. But, it IS renewable.
It comes from the Sun. If we use it up, it keeps on coming.
The other statement that I quibble (slightly) with is the following:
"in spite of the fact that thousands of real scientists have debunked the notion that humans, with their mundane activities, can cause the global climate to change."
Maybe it's just semantics; but what has been debunked is that human activities HAVE caused global climate to change. Not whether it potentially COULD.
The only reason I mention it is that I've heard some people claim that humans could NOT affect the earth, or its atmosphere, or its climate.
That we DO, simply by emitting CO2, is the debunked notion of the warmists. But, that we COULD -- I think -- goes without saying. I can think of at least two pretty effective ways.

You are right, that one sentence encapsulates the entire renewable energy fraud.

I think your article could have been one phrase long, because that phrase spoke volumes. "The renewable part is a fallacy in itself – once energy is spent, it cannot be renewed."
That line speaks volumes to the lunacy of the watermelons and even the true believers of the environmental movement.

Most Americans are unaware of the fact that 9 states in the North East have been living under a Cap & Trade system for over 3 years now.
The organization running this scam, called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is a cooperative effort among the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. It’s a voluntary (for the states, but not for their residents) cap & trade system that holds carbon credit auctions every three months that the power companies are forced to support. Together, the citizens of these states have been bilked out of over a billion dollars in the last few years, and many in those states are totally unaware that this is going on. And what did they get for their money? RGGI proudly reports that they have capped and will reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector 10 percent by 2018. Think about that for a moment. The citizens of those 9 states (it used to be 10, but New Jersey had the good sense to drop out) have spent over a billion dollars to reduce the amount of CO2, a beneficial trace gas, 96% of which occurs naturally, by an inconsequential amount.
I spoke to a friend in NYC last week after she sent me a copy of her latest bill from Con Edison, which revealed that she's paying roughly 3.5 times as much per Kw hour for her electricity as I am in a state not afflicted with this parasitic disease. RGGI just completed its 16th auction, in which it ripped off electricity consumers for another $40 million.
Check it out at RGGI.org. This is fraud, plain & simple, & the people in those 9 states are the victims. CO2 is not a pollutant. The EPA should be abolished!

People seem to have this mistaken idea that Agenda 21 and any UN initiative is "For The Planet" or "For The Children". You give these corrupt thieves way more credit than they are due and you make the problem much more complicated than it is. It's about 1 thing; greed. They don't care about "sustainability" unless it's about the sustainability of their expense account and cushy position. They don't care about "The Children" unless it pads their bottom line.
There are those that have been brainwashed to believe this male bovine fecal material, but those are the little people.
...and yes, sheople are stupid. They'll believe anything as long as they think that belief will give them a leg up on their own promotion or government aid package. Again, there are those that really "believe" and attempt to be righteous, however, they've been co-opted by the big government authoritarian left who uses the ignorant little sheoples' support to do something the sheople would be horrified of.
It's all a game. A game of smoke, mirrors, MBFM (aka BS), money and power. Unless we grab this bull by the horns and put him down, he will gore us. We've been "Gored" a couple times already. The north arctic penguins gave it away. Only one tree in thousands? Really, Al? Have you no shame?
Just remember; psychopaths have no morals and no emotions and they care only for their goals. If they could nuke the planet and come out ahead, they'd do it. Psychopaths are at the top.

Yes, my question was rhetorical.

Great Article. AB32 California Global Warming Act is all about UN Agenda 21. I believe there are hidden regulation in the bill. When California builds the stupid High Speed Rail system between LA and the Commies by the Bay. The state will then be divide into regions. Drivers will be charged tolls for driving between these regions. The regions are probably going to be based on USGS breakdown of California into geological provinces. California broken down into eleven of these provinces. The recently passed law that all cars produced after 2015 will have be equipped with black box recording system. UN Agenda 21 was the reason why this bill was passed. They want to get us out of our cars. This also way the Commie left is pushing these bike lanes. Whenever the politicians hist bike events I know it is all about UN Agenda 21.
The NOAA has be caught in a lie in a report it has just released. They stated this past spring was the hottest spring in years. Here is the problem. There were spring snow storms in up state New York. Apple and cherry crops in Michigan were severally hurt by hard freezes as were the wine crops in Ohio. I'm sorry you can't have the hottest spring when crops are being damage by hard freezes. There are still winter driving conditions in Washington state. Mt. Rainer is still getting snow in June. Sure does sound like it is hot doesn't it. Oh yea there has been at least two hard freezes in Nevada recently and they expecting a hard freeze in Utah. All these wildfires I believe are started by the government to get people off those lands. Be watchful of reports of people that had their home burn down not being allowed back their land. USDA will say they have to protect the animals. Look at what the USDA i doing to Tombstone, AZ, in their rebuilding of their water system.The Usda is even banning them from using wheel barrels to reconstruct their water system. It's all UN Agenda 21.

Dr. Paugh, I presume your question, "Are humans that ignorant to believe the environmental nonsense that the planet is dying?" is rhetorical? Of course we are. Look at all the other insane crap people around the globe are buying in to. Capitalism is bad, Socialism is good, everyone can be equal, and all of our economical problems are just a bump in the road. The list goes on and on. So, I would have to say, overall, YES, people are that stupid.
The sad part is that many of our American companies have bought in to this crap also. Now just about every manufacturer in the country touts something that is “green". They may or may not believe in this crap, but they are sure as hell pandering to the buffoons that do believe in it.
We need to get rid of these radicals and get the UN out of the US. Shut the doors, kick them out of the country and convert the UN building into low cost housing or something equally benevolent.
It just gets crazier and crazier as each day passes.
Now, let's see if these comments are too "radical" for the moderators to post. I now see that there really is no more "free speech" left in the world.

Global Warming Cash Cow in Peril

Environmental nonsense that the planet is dying?
Hillary Clinton has recently visited Greenland to experience firsthand “global warming.” According to James Taylor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites have shown minimal if any reduction in polar ice caps since 1979 when their satellites were launched. “Whole Viking villages built in Greenland 1,000 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period, remain buried under hundreds of feet of snow and ice.” (James Taylor, “Hillary Needs a New Global Warming Travel Agent,” Forbes, June 6, 2012)More...
