By Ronald Stein ~ “God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the Courage to change the things I can change; and the Wisdom to know the difference.” The afore-quoted Serenity Prayer came to mind while I was writing this because it seems applicable to the world’s citizens who are trying […]

By Paul Driessen ~ Vocal activists increasingly drive Democrat Party positions across the public policy spectrum. Print, television, social and click-bait media generally support them, while permitting little debate on liberal proposals or their potential ramifications. Even semi-moderate Joe Biden has been pressured into shifting or flipping his positions on abortion, energy, climate change and […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Lily D’Ambrosio, Victoria’s warmist Minister for Energy, in 2017 claimed Labor was helping to “deliver affordable, sustainable and renewable energy”. All three promises were broken yesterday. Affordable? Victoria actually had wholesale power prices hit $14,500 per megawatt hour – when prices used to average less than $40. Sustainable?

Thus Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report 15 claims governments worldwide must make “unprecedented changes in all aspects of society,” spend $40 […]

By Michael Bastasch ~ My, how time flies. Friday marks exactly one year since President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris Agreement on man-made global warming.

By Nicolas Loris ~ The GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act makes a profound policy statement that is to be commended: The goal of the bill’s energy measures is “to move closer to a free-market energy agenda.” Free markets supply affordable energy, innovation, and a clean environment better than any heavy-handed regulatory approach to manipulate […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ The Australian Labor Party wants to force the country to switch to 50 per cent green power – almost all of it unreliable wind and solar – by 2030, or just 13 years from now. How mad is that? New South Wales (NSW) was baked by a heat wave on the […]

Cornwall Alliance works to ensure reliable, affordable energy for poor families worldwide. By Paul Driessen ~ In a more rational, moral, compassionate, scientifically literate world, this Cornwall declaration would not be needed. It assesses the “far-reaching, costly policies” that the world’s governments are adopting, supposedly to prevent global warming and climate change. It calls on […]

By Stephen Moore ~ Energy is the master resource, as the late, great economist Julian Simon used to say. You can’t produce much of anything if you don’t have affordable electric power. My children learned that lesson the hard way when we lost our electricity due to a blizzard several months ago. Welcome, I said […]

By Niger Innis The Environmental Protection Agency insists that its recent air quality initiatives will protect minority and poor Americans from pollution that “disproportionately affects” their health and impairs “environmental justice.” The Affordable Power Alliance is not convinced.

By Paul Driessen In a scene reminiscent of Colonial Williamsburg, for 16 years Thabo Molubi and his partner had made furniture in South Africa’s outback, known locally as the “veld,” using nothing but hand and foot power. When an electrical line finally reached the area, they installed lights, power saws and drills. Their productivity increased […]
