June 18, 2021 by

0

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 […]

June 11, 2021 by

Now, under the Biden climate plan, America will be discouraging U.S. energy independence, starting with suspending Federal Oil and […]

A Pipeline For Vladimir, Pipe Dreams For Joe

June 4, 2021 by

By Larry Bell ~ President Biden and his handlers certainly have a very strange strategy to protect us against the world’s greatest existential threat. I’m referring, of course, to climate change – certainly not to Democrat apathy regarding Marxism, China, or even Russia now that Trump is out of power to “collude” with. Joe launched […]

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.

A Good Example Of A Bad Environmental Justice Study

May 8, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Biden’s so-called environmental justice push is going to bring on a big wave of bogus research. A really big report just came out so I want to chop on it a bit. Not just for its specific fallacies, but also as typical of what we are going to see a […]

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 […]

Biden Closing The Door On U.S. Mining

May 3, 2021 by

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Early on, President Joe Biden promised multitudes of “good-paying, union jobs” to fuel his massive push for wind and solar powered electric vehicles, EV charging stations, and the tiny portion of his “infrastructure” package that actually involves road and bridge construction. But it now appears many, if not most, of those “good-paying, […]

Are The Texas Blackouts A Preview Of Biden’s Coming Green New Deal?

May 1, 2021 by

5

By Adam Houser and Craig Rucker ~ “Don’t mess with Texas!” Unfortunately, “messing with Texas” is exactly what so-called “renewable” energy recently did with Lone Star residents. In mid-February, extreme cold temperatures rocked the state, as well as much of the nation. Yet, unlike the rest of America, Texas was also hit with widespread power […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The Biden Climate Summit is not just the two day zoomfest. That show is the crescendo to a complex concert that has played out over the last few weeks. Each of the speeches by Federal Agency heads is the announcement of their part of a massive green plan — the […]

Alarming Climate Exaggerations And Policy Mistakes — Biden’s 2021 Earth Day Summit

April 24, 2021 by

1

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ President Biden’s two day virtual “climate leader’s summit” kicked off on Earth Day. The alarming claims made at Biden’s summit bear little resemblance to reality.  The “solutions” proposed would in the main cause massive economic pain and expense for little or no environmental benefit.  In some cases they would cause […]

By Adam Houser ~ We’ve heard both major political parties talk about the need for an infrastructure bill for several years now. With President Biden, we’re finally getting it. Or are we?

By Katie Tubb ~ Committees in the House and Senate are scheduled Thursday to hold hearings on energy innovation. The hearings come in the wake of the American Jobs Plan and the Biden administration’s budget, including massive proposals for taxpayer-backed research, development, demonstration, and commercialization, particularly for energy technologies.

By Peter Murphy ~ The United States Secretary of Transportation, 39-year-old Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, really, really cares about global warming (aka, “climate change”) – and he wants you to know. During his two months in office, Secretary Pete (formerly, “Mayor Pete”) has spread falsehoods about climate change. He also recently […]

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 […]

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 […]
