By Peter Murphy ~ From day one of his presidency, Joe Biden has been implementing his climate change agenda. By hook or by crook, the Biden administration and Congress are trying to force American businesses and consumers away from plentiful and affordable oil, coal and natural gas. Then something happened along the way that could […]

Fossil Fuels Form The Basis Of Our Medical And Food Supply Chains

October 20, 2021 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ Under Biden’s plan to rid America of fossil fuels, such a plan would eliminate the medical industry that is totally reliant on the products made from petroleum derivatives, and eliminate oil-based fertilizers to grow the crops that feed the 8 billion on planet earth. Surprisingly, Biden must be oblivious to the […]

By Duggan Flanakin ~ At a time when the global supply of semiconductor chips is falling behind global demand, President Joe Biden is pushing heavily for massive changes to the U.S. economy that require near-geometric increases in our reliance on technologies that require chips and the rare-earth metals that make them work. Chinese President Xi Jinping […]

Costly Energy, Climate Policies In Democrats’ Spending Bill Lack Transparency

September 23, 2021 by

0

By Katie Tubb ~ Unprecedented is an understatement to describe what’s happening in Congress right now. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., are driving Congress to pass a $3.5 trillion spending package to go along with the more than $1 trillion infrastructure bill that passed the Senate in August. […]

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ American oil history began for certain in a valley along a creek in a remote area of northwestern Pennsylvania on August 27, 1859. There a well drilled, with the intention of profiting from the extraction of oil, by Edwin Drake reached 69.5 feet into the ground and filled with oil […]

Biden Proclaims September “National Wilderness Month,” Bad Timing, Joe

September 12, 2021 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ As catastrophic wildfires continue to ravage the parched West, President Joe Biden – showing the same deft hand that enabled him to turn Afghanistan along with billions of dollars of sophisticated U.S. military equipment and an undetermined number of American citizens over to the Taliban – chose precisely this moment […]

Biden Climate Change Policy A ‘House Of Cards’

August 24, 2021 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ “It’s getting late early,” said that great 20th century philosopher, Yogi Berra. For President Joseph Biden, this nugget from the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher sticks like butterscotch as his policy blunders pile up and Americans increasingly feel their baleful effects. They include the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, menacing […]

Biden Clueless On Much More Than Afghanistan

August 21, 2021 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ The horrible tragedy in Afghanistan revealed a Biden Administration divorced from reality. President Biden and his people not only failed to validly assess the ramifications of their actions, they froze like deer in headlights and proved unable to adapt and respond as new information became available. Afghanistan turned the Biden team […]

Energy And Climate Policies, Cronyism Don’t Belong In Bloated Senate Infrastructure Bill

August 4, 2021 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ The infrastructure package being debated in the Senate this week weighs in at a whopping 2,702 pages and $1.1 trillion. While the layman might think of infrastructure as roads and bridges, Washington’s definition is about as nebulous as the measures by which lawmakers are claiming they pay for the bill. Nearly […]

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% […]

Congress, Don’t Let Liberals Shoehorn Harmful Energy Policies Into Budget And Infrastructure Bills

July 22, 2021 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ President Joe Biden has made it the policy of his administration to decarbonize the electricity sector fully by 2035 and to reach economy-wide net zero emissions by 2050. The trouble is, it’s very hard for a president to unilaterally require hundreds of millions of American businesses, industries, and energy users to […]

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 […]

Biden Uses Prairie Chicken As A Pretext To Throttle U.S. Energy

June 27, 2021 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ With its decision to add the lesser prairie chicken to the endangered species list, the Biden administration is using the pretext of protecting a member of the grouse family to further curtail oil and gas development on private lands in five states. Biden officials are seeking the listing of the […]

Green Mania Hits The Wall Of Nothingness

June 24, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ It is now clear that none of Biden’s radical green promises are going to be kept. More broadly the wild green fantasies are going nowhere. There will be some action, but nothing much. None, nowhere, nothing much — welcome to the wall of nothingness. I for one am celebrating it, […]

Energy Resiliency Should Be Central To Biden’s Decarbonization Strategy

June 18, 2021 by

3

By Ronald Stein ~ We are currently facing one of the worst droughts in California history, which will fan the flames of a fire season that is getting more severe every year. Extreme heat and fires have incapacitated our already fragile energy grid and repeatedly left millions without power across the state. These climate crisis-related […]

Beijing Power Players Poised To Pull Plug On Prospects To Go ‘All-Electric’

June 12, 2021 by

3

By Larry Bell ~ Feckless far-left fantasies of trading away the 80% of American fossil-fueled energy independence and prosperity for technologies that are 80% dependent on China rare earth materials makes for a gullible green new deal that only Beijing beneficiaries can love. Included are 17 indispensable metals including lithium, that will be needed to […]

Biden’s Climate Order Will Undermine U.S. Financial Stability

June 5, 2021 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ Late last month, President Joe Biden issued yet another executive order related to fighting climate change that will effectively conscript the U.S. financial sector into the climate war. This executive order sets out to effectively transform the nation’s energy sector and the economy, writ large, based on the vapid claim that […]

Biden’s Climate Corporate Welfare

June 1, 2021 by

0

By Peter Murphy ~ The Biden administration and several members of Congress are proposing legislation for a National Climate Bank to use federal tax dollars to subsidize and finance “green energy” projects with private sector. The idea of a federal lending vehicle, whether it’s creating a bank or other financing incentive, is nothing new. In […]

Biden’s Russian Collusion

May 29, 2021 by

1

By Deroy Murdock ~ Is Joe Biden a Russian asset? After reading this tale of three pipelines, that unhappy ending will be hard to avoid. First, on Jan. 20, Biden’s first afternoon as president, he ditched the Trump-approved Keystone XL pipeline. Some 11,000 high-paying jobs, many unionized, vanished. While these suddenly unemployed Americans sulked, Russian […]

It’s Time For Climate Realism When It Comes To China

May 28, 2021 by

3

By Katie Tubb ~ The Biden administration has made much of its new commitment to the Paris climate agreement, marrying it with trillions in climate spending and regulatory proposals in the American Jobs Plan and courting complimentary legislation from Congress. Under the agreement, the U.S. is committing to reduce national greenhouse gas emissions by at […]

Biden’s Hypocrisy On Keystone XL Versus Nord Stream 2 Pipelines

May 25, 2021 by

1

By Katie Tubb and Daniel Kochis ~ When President Barack Obama rejected a presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, he concluded that “America is now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fight climate change. … And America is prepared to show the rest of the world the way forward.” […]

Coming Attractions: Long Lines At The Pump, High Gas Prices

May 14, 2021 by

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ A brawl broke out at a Raleigh, N.C.-area gas station after the driver of a Honda – desperate to acquire fuel anyway she could — cut in front of another car that had been waiting in a long line of vehicles in need of a fill-up. This breach of service-station […]

Biden’s Offshore Wind Energy Mirage

May 7, 2021 by

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

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 […]
