There is a development going on in North Carolina that could be an international game-changer against the whole environmental movement. This is an outline. There will be more to report in the next issue.
In a recent newsletter I alerted you to the dishonest report made by the Guardian of our citizen’s DC meeting — which was then picked up by some twenty other sites. To their credit, one of these, TreeHugger, subsequently took the time to look into the story. They then published a new retraction article saying it was a false alarm.
In the last issue I recommend an article “Getting Even on Reliability”. Unfortunately WSJ articles are sometimes behind a paywall. Here is the article reprinted elsewhere.
More reports about greed energy economics:
A fine letter against the PTC.
A significant analysis that shows wind turbine performance decreasing every year. The economics of this have yet to be calculated.
$257 Billion spent last year on renewables. [Note this is the direct investment, and is nowhere near the indirect costs.]
More reports about turbine health matters:
More reports about turbine wildlife matters:
A fine editorial about birds and eagles vs turbines.
Miscellaneous energy reports:
A really good book about the flawed DOE wind study.
The US House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issues an interesting report on the current administrations energy policies.
A good post about the AWEA meeting.
A favorable development in a Maine lawsuit.
Enormous environmental damage from solar.
An interesting/problematic court decision on nuclear waste.
A good discussion of Crony Capitalism.
