The Greens Threaten Us With Floods But Fail To Protect Against Them

July 27, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The devastating European floods reveal an incredible hypocrisy in the green agenda. They want to spend untold sums, supposedly to prevent natural floods by cutting emissions. But they spend nothing to prepare for these same floods, which they predict will get worse! This glaring point is made quite clearly by […]

Green Energy Deficits Rely On Political Power Plays

July 25, 2021 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ So, maybe some of you seriously imagine that America is really going to successfully implement a Green New Dementia model of switching from recently achieved fossil-fueled energy independence (80% of U.S. supply) to planet-climate-saving windmills and sunbeams (that intermittently produce 3% or less)? Then, in addition, we’re going to replace 98% […]

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ The newly released book “Clean Energy Exploitations” by Ron Stein and Todd Royal will help us all understand how mis-named clean energy has led the U.S., Germany, and Australia to exploit the most vulnerable people while destroying their environment.

Another Biden Administration Eco-Con

July 17, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to “permanently protect” at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This “30 X 30 Plan” appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not “protected,” even though the […]

Fix The RFS!

EPA Should Rewrite Its Proposed HFC Regulations

July 14, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A group of 17 leading free market advocacy organizations is telling EPA to rethink and repropose its faulty phaseout rules for HFCs. These rules were recently proposed under the so-called American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act passed in December. EPA is rushing the rule making, with final rules due out […]

China, Universities And Climate Change

July 1, 2021 by

2

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ Who loves climate hysteria? China does! And so do American universities. Why, you ask? Because China is pumping billions of dollars into America’s elite academic institutions. A sizable portion of that cash goes to “research” into the “climate crisis” narrative. […]

Iowans To Ethanol: Enough Is Enough

June 22, 2021 by

4

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ During his long – and not always illustrious – political career, Bob Dole was fond of telling crowds on the campaign trail: “I’m the senator from ethanol.” Dole, still with us at 98, is from Kansas, which along with Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota, Missouri, and Minnesota is part of the […]

Electric Power Fantasies Are Lining Up

June 16, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Seems like every big policy gun wants to take a shot at fantasizing the decarbonization and electrification of the energy system. No doubt that is where the government policy analysis money is going. Sadly I am on the wrong side of the issue, money-wise, but it sure is fun flogging […]

The ChiCom ‘Wet Market’ Lie

June 16, 2021 by

1

By Thomas Gallatin ~ The evidence points to a Wuhan lab, not a wet market, as the source of the pandemic. When news of a novel coronavirus out of Wuhan, China, first began making the headlines early last year, the theory of its origin was quickly tied to a local wet market in which exotic […]

Flip The Fossil Fuel Script

June 14, 2021 by

1

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ No shortage of anti-energy agitators would LOVE IT if wind & solar were our primary energy providers with fossil fuels relegated as only minor players. Ok…. That’s crazy and impossible, but as an exercise we thought it would be fun […]

Clapton TRASHES Government COVID ‘Propaganda,’ Worse Dilemma Than ‘Addiction/Alcoholism’

May 18, 2021 by

By Gabriel Hays ~ A recent bout with extreme COVID vaccine side effects has inspired another searing rebuke of government pandemic mandates from the guitar legend Eric Clapton. In a lengthy missive reposted by multiple users across social media, the 76 year-old “Layla” singer spoke of dealing with western governments’ handling of coronavirus as the […]

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Of all tyrannies,  a tyranny sincerely exercised  for the good of its victims  may be the most oppressive. – C. S. Lewis Is it mere coincidence that the European nations leading the march toward all- electric vehicle fleets are still (at least symbolically) – or were for centuries – ruled by monarchies? […]

Is Big Wind Too Big For Its Britches?

May 10, 2021 by

3

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The world-wide wind industry, says the Global Wind Energy Council, will create 3.3 million new “good-paying union jobs” by 2025, if it actually installs the planned 470 gigawatts of combined onshore and offshore wind capacity. Just in 2020, says the GWEC, 93 GW of new wind capacity was installed – doubling 2019 […]

By Craig Rucker ~ President Biden recently announced ambitious plans to install huge offshore industrial wind facilities along America’s Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific coasts. His goal is to churn out 30 gigawatts (30,000 megawatts) of wind capacity by 2030, ensuring the U.S. “leads by example” in fighting the “climate crisis.” Granted “30 by […]

Two Climate Plans: One Based On Common Sense, The Other Rooted In Fantasy

May 6, 2021 by

2

By Heather Reams ~ Washington marked Earth Day by unveiling two, starkly different visions for America’s immediate, clean energy future. First up, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) introduced the GOP’s “Energy Innovation Agenda,” a climate change plan rooted in conservative principles, limited government and unleashing innovation. Later in the week, President Biden hosted a climate summit of world […]

Fed Funding Fantasy: EV Charging

April 11, 2021 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Biden wants the Federal Government to build 500,000 EV charging stations, at an estimated cost of around $178 billion. How might that work? No good way is how. This is truly a Fed funding fantasy. The Feds build big stuff like post offices, federal buildings, military bases, flood control dams […]

America Pursues Expensive Electricity While Much Of The World Lives In Energy Poverty

April 7, 2021 by

By Ronald Stein ~ With many still living with little to no access to electricity, American politicians are pursuing the most expensive ways to generate intermittent electricity with offshore wind turbines on the East and West Coasts. The U.S Energy Information Administration (EIA) has already documented that offshore wind continues to be one of the most […]

Cybersecurity Of Wind Power A Growing Concern

April 6, 2021 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The Biden White House’s March 29 announcement that it will expedite development of offshore wind projects along the Atlantic Coast of the United States underscores the administration’s commitment to move the nation away from fossil fuels to increased dependence on renewable energy. But the prospect of giant wind turbines sprouting […]

Crazy HFC Phaseout Is Coming (Part 2)

April 5, 2021 by

0

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In my first article — “Economically destructive cap and trade for HFCs is here” — I looked at the Kigali Amendment part of the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act or AIM. There the big problem is that the HFC cap is based on 8-10 year old data, which is mostly […]

Extinction Distortion

March 31, 2021 by

3

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ This is one of the shorter articles I have written each week at CFACT. The reason is that the fraudulent distortion of species extinction has so little data behind it for me to dissect, actually none. So there is little to write about. Patrick Moore did write about it in […]
