By Ronald Stein ~ The worldwide movement toward the electrification of everything, from intermittent electricity by industrial wind and solar farms, to more electric vehicles, the political actions are supportive of jumping onto the green train, most-likely not knowing there is a darker side of green technology, associated with environmental degradation, humanity atrocities, and other […]

Biden Pledges His U.S. Penalized Energy To Europe

April 2, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ Biden energy policies are even worse than gunning acceleration of a car in stop-and-go traffic … more like trying to move forward with one foot jamming the gas pedal and the other simultaneously clamping down on the brake. What you wind up with is lots of smoke, a burned-out engine, and a […]
