By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A lot of countries (as well as many U.S. states and utilities) are announcing so-called zero-carbon plans, typically with a target year around 2050. These are often reported as calling for 100% renewable energy, which is wrong. There is a difference between zero-carbon and 100% renewables, but this is often […]

Gore is now something of a has-been in the fame department. On the other side, Will Happer is far and away the best known skeptic (not counting President Trump, […]

The second explained the need to finish the U.S. flood (and drought) control program. The present article is about the huge opportunity to build new hydropower dams. […]
