I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would give our leaders wisdom as they struggle to deal with our energy shortage. Prevent from acting our of fear, God, and solve this crisis.

As more and more countries across the world push for renewable energy, Elon Musk has issued a warning against a sudden switch.

From The Daily Wire. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk cautioned on Monday that the global economy places itself at risk by pursuing a rushed transition to renewable power.

Energy prices in many developed countries — particularly nations in western Europe heavily dependent upon renewable sources — have soared following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, with natural gas prices in Germany and France soaring to an order of magnitude higher than usual levels. During an energy conference in Norway, Musk remarked that “some additional exploration” of oil and gas resources “is warranted at this time.”

“Realistically I think we need to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilization will crumble,” Musk told reporters. “One of the biggest challenges the world has ever faced is the transition to sustainable energy and to a sustainable economy. That will take some decades to complete.”

Many developed countries are indeed shifting their energy portfolios toward renewables and away from conventional sources. As a result, Norwegian production of oil, natural gas, and other fossil fuels reached a peak in 2004 and has steadily declined since, according to data from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. More broadly, the European Union — of which Norway is not a member — aims to be “a climate-neutral society” by 2050 in accordance with the European Green Deal and the Paris Agreement….

Musk issued a similar warning to the United States earlier this year — despite possible harm brought to Tesla, which exclusively manufactures electric cars. “Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures,” he commented on social media, noting that sustainable energy solutions “simply cannot react instantaneously” to cope with lower energy supplies….

I am rather shocked at how few comments have been made here at IFA. It is now Sept 10th! I believe God is using Mr. Musks position of influence whether saved or not…to bring people to a playing field of common sense. Personally, I have claimed by faith he will be saved. He is gifted with tremendous creativity, productivity, a great risk taker, all helpful to our Lord. So Lord guide him, led him and accomplish wisdom for the good of man and not evil, in Jesus name, Amen.

China is the benefactor. A “green” world means someone controls the switch. China has a long standing goal of owning the world.

Please pray our Lord raises up 10,000 Houses of Prayer in America. Prayerlessness is a huge problem – SIN – amongst believers in America.

You don’t have to be a genius like Elon Musks to know our government and others are rushing healing into disaster with this foolish, unthought out destructive transition now. Those proponents are either ignorant or Beth on destroying the US and other countries. Only a careful., prayerful princess will be effective in the long run.

Musk seems to be a man with great insight. Even tho he owns an Electric car company he still has an outlook for the rest of the world.!

I believe the Lord gave this man his intelligence. In many ways Musk has insight about futuristic ways that most people don’t. I see that he also has been given a sense of balance to know that immediately shutting things down (gas/oil) is very harmful. I pray that governments listen to him. I also pray the Lord keep His hand on this man and use him for good and not evil.
