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. […]

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 Wrong On Fires And Ida

September 4, 2021 by

4

By Craig Rucker ~ Hurricane Ida brought powerful wind and rain to Louisiana and drenched the Northeast. Devastating fires have consumed California forests and burned people out of their homes. Politicians and pressure groups, from President Biden on down, rushed to capitalize on people’s heart-rending losses, and exploit them to push the global warming narrative. […]

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 […]

Electric Vehicles Will Run On Empty Green New Deal Pipe Dreams

August 17, 2021 by

3

By Larry Bell ~ Nineteen seriously misguided Republican senators joined with Democrats to pass a behemoth 2,720-page-long $1.2 trillion ”infrastructure” spending bill of which a mere 23% — about $127 billion of $548 billion in new federal spending — is earmarked for popular priorities that most people associate with that term: highways, bridges, tunnels, ports […]

The Working Poor Need Workhorse Vehicles

August 13, 2021 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ With more than forty percent of the EV’s in the entire country being in California at the end of 2020, the EV popularity in California has gotten President Biden so excited to want the rest of the country to follow California’s lead that Biden issued a new executive order that pushes […]

What You Need To Know About Biden’s Ill-Conceived Executive Order On Electric Vehicles

August 10, 2021 by

1

By Katie Tubb ~ President Joe Biden issued an executive order Aug. 5 calling for half of all new vehicles sold in the U.S. to be zero-emission vehicles by 2030. A president can’t exactly force Americans to buy an electric vehicle, and Biden largely meant his executive order as a messaging tool to fuel enthusiasm […]

EV Weirdness Looms Large

August 3, 2021 by

5

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ People are not excited about buying electric vehicles, so word has it that the Biden administration is gearing up to force us to do it. The trick is to use the so-called Fuel Economy Standards to do it. The reported target is that at least 40% of car and light […]

Heads Up: Biden Administration Will Reimpose Disastrous “WOTUS” Water Rule

July 31, 2021 by

2

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The biggest power grab in the 50-year history of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was significantly blunted in April 2020, when the Trump administration – to the relief of rural communities across the country — rolled back the Obama-era “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule and replaced it with […]

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 […]

REAL Threats To Planet And People

July 7, 2021 by

3

By Paul Driessen ~ Environmental activism was already nasty and lethal when I wrote Eco-Imperialism: Green Power – Black Death 18 years ago. It’s gotten steadily worse since then, especially with hysteria about the “looming manmade climate apocalypse” driving ever more extreme demands that we rid the world of fossil fuels and prohibit or roll […]

AOC’s CCC Isn’t FDR’s CCC

July 2, 2021 by

1

By Thomas Gallatin ~ Her $70 billion Civilian Climate Corps would be an army of well-paid climate activists. They may share the same initials, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Civilian Climate Corps” is no Great Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps. The Bronx representative and her Green New Deal pal, Massachusetts Democrat Senator Ed Markey, are pushing for $70 […]

Electric Cars Will Eventually Get Us Nowhere

June 29, 2021 by

6

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ One of the most hyped innovations of our life time is today’s electric vehicle. While our federal government and the state of California think the internal combustion engine will soon end in the dustbin of history, it just ain’t so. It will never happen for many obvious reasons that governments […]

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 New Deal Absent From New Biden Infrastructure Plan

June 25, 2021 by

1

By Adam Houser ~ “To answer the direct question: We have a deal.” Those were President Biden’s words as he announced a new bipartisan agreement on a potential infrastructure bill at the White House. The plan will involve approximately $579 billion in additional spending. In Biden’s original infrastructure proposal, climate change was a central focus […]

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 […]

Ridding The World Of Fossil Fuels Will Drive Humanity Back To Medieval Times

June 11, 2021 by

8

By Ronald Stein ~ “We are going to get rid of fossil fuels” said President Biden. For the first time since Harry Truman was president 70 years ago, America recently had more energy exports than imports. 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

8

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. The idea of a federal lending vehicle, whether it’s creating a bank or other financing incentive, is nothing new. In […]

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 […]

President Biden – Making Russia Great Again

May 24, 2021 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ President Joe Biden last week removed sanctions against Russian companies to allow completion of the massive Nord Stream 2 wind turbine and solar energy project so that Russia can supply this renewable energy abundance to U.S.-allied nations in western Europe. Gotta fight global warming and reverse climate change, don’t ya know!! […]
