Green Energy Policies Offer No Help To The Most Desperate

July 29, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ Herd hysteria is taking tragic social and economic tolls on formerly prosperous countries that have enacted climate alarm-premised anti-fossil energy and agriculture policies. Such self-inflicted misery can be attributed to a combination of influences: unwarranted fear based upon provably failed theoretical climate models; grossly misguided expectations of so-called “green energy” capacities […]

Biden Family Connections To U.S. And China Energy Deals

July 21, 2022 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ Here’s a head scratcher. Weren’t we told by President Joe Biden that the release of a million barrels of oil a day from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) from April onward, “will help address supply disruptions caused by Putin’s further invasion of Ukraine and the Price Hike that Americans are […]

Left’s Climate Projections Yield Worst Case Consequences For Needed Energy

July 16, 2022 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ We are already witnessing disastrous economic and social consequences of energy policies premised upon precautionary “worst case” climate model projections that leading scientific contributors to the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) now admit are running far too hot. As reported in the prestigious journal Nature, the latest round of […]

Biden’s Electric Caravan To Green Utopia Runs Out Of Gas

June 29, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ The woke Biden administration is receiving loud wake up calls from appropriately alarmed constituents as their poll numbers tank. The message is that a vast majority of the country isn’t feverish enough about global warming Armageddon hyped by a powerful coalition of globalist non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), investment corporations, well-funded environmental activist, […]

Germany’s Green Energy Fixation Should Teach U.S. A Lesson

June 6, 2022 by

4

By Larry Bell ~ Germany’s new Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government vice chancellor and economic minister Robert Habeck, a leading member of his country’s Green Party, has experienced a rude lesson regarding disastrous consequences of his years of naïve opposition to fossil fuels. After tasking his top officials to assess energy security implications of Germany’s dependence […]

The Breezy Windmill Fantasies Of The Nantucket Crowd

May 15, 2022 by

4

By Larry Bell ~ President Joe Biden boasted to a staged throng of dozens assembled for his Earth Day speech that he had “made it clear to [his wealthy] friends up in Nantucket and that area” that they were to drop their objections to offshore wind farms planned for the Martha’s Vineyard area. Lowering his voice to […]

Joe Biden’s Breezy Windmills Of His Naive Mind

May 9, 2022 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ To dispel any doubts on the matter, President Biden extolled bountiful and beautiful environmental virtues of wind energy to a staged throng of dozens assembled for his April 22 Earth Day speech in a Seattle, Washington, park setting. Biden boasted that he had “made it clear to [his wealthy] friends up […]

EU, Biden Russian Energy ‘Solutions’ Validate Einstein’s Insanity Theory

April 30, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ It shouldn’t have required a genius like Albert Einstein to observe that evidence of insanity is to continue making the same mistakes and expecting different outcomes. Take, for example, self-inflicted European energy dependence on Russia which Moscow threatens to exploit over their weapons support for Ukraine against Putin’s invasion. Germany, a […]

Biden Pledges Energy To Europe As He Cripples American Producers

April 11, 2022 by

0

By Larry Bell ~ Joe Biden’s recent offer to help self-inflicted energy-starved Europe replace Russia as its main natural gas supplier as he works to put American producers out of business is cluelessly paradoxical. The White House posted a joint March 25 statement by President Biden and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen: “We’re going to […]

Biden Pledges His U.S. Penalized Energy To Europe

April 2, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ Biden energy policies are even worse than gunning acceleration of a car in stop-and-go traffic … more like trying to move forward with one foot jamming the gas pedal and the other simultaneously clamping down on the brake. What you wind up with is lots of smoke, a burned-out engine, and a […]

Don’t Blame Putin Or Petroleum Companies For Biden’s Pump Pain

March 21, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ As his administration now scrambles to solicit supply oil shortages from OPEC, Venezuela, and Iran to reduce skyrocketing energy costs ahead of Democrat congressional mid-term election casualties, let’s remember this contradicts former 2019 candidate Joe Biden’s campaign pledge that “I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels.” Let’s also recall […]

EV Race Ignores Russian, Chinese Mineral Speed Traps

March 20, 2022 by

4

By Larry Bell ~ Billboard size speed limit signs and flashing police radar scanning dashboard warnings be damned! U.S. and European electric vehicle (EV) companies are racing to cash in on markets driven by dependence upon government subsidies which, in turn, rely on scarce and costly materials needed for batteries controlled by foreign adversaries. Mining […]

America Can Loosen Europe’s Russian Energy Noose

March 8, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ Western Europe’s self-inflicted abandonment of its own energy resources resulting in dependence on Russian oil seems to generally follow Lenin’s playbook when he reportedly quipped that “capitalists will sell us the rope by which we hang them.” The main editorial clarification to add here, is that applies most directly to the […]

Climate Alarmists And The Fed Make Strange Bedfellows

January 21, 2022 by

0

By Peter Murphy ~ Climate fanaticism and its accompanying hypocrisy increasingly defines so much of our political, corporate, entertainment and media sectors. An overlapping number of people in those sectors regularly cry wolf about “democracy in peril” when the wrong persons win elections yet are openly supporting imposing climate polices without so much as a […]

EPA Auto ‘Fuel Efficiency’ Scam Overlooks EV Recharging Costs

January 13, 2022 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ Agencies of the Biden administration are pushing green gullibility and gushers of auto maker subsidy greed, premised on mythical wind/solar capacities. The purpose of this push is to foist electric vehicles (EVs) on legitimately reluctant free-market consumers and already overburdened power grids. EPA’s latest de facto EV mandate proposes to require […]

Heating Costs Likely To Soar, U.S. Foreign Energy Dependence To Increase

October 16, 2021 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ You might wish to rethink the importance of natural gas this winter as sunbeams and windmills fall far short of keeping your home water pipes from freezing and your Tesla recharged amid skyrocketing global energy costs. Americans are already feeling the pain as electricity and utility gas prices were up 5.2% […]

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 […]

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% […]

Let’s Rebrand ‘Infrastructure Bill’ As ‘Anti-Suburban Zoning Bill’

July 13, 2021 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ Buried in the depths of the Democrats’ proposed “Infrastructure Bill,” which is currently being negotiated with GOP congressional leadership is a $213 billion item — nearly twice the amount earmarked for roads and bridges — that will essentially put the federal government in charge of rezoning single-family homes out of your neighborhood. The plan, if […]

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 […]

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 […]

America’s California-Style Green Awokening

May 21, 2021 by

2

By Larry Bell ~ The old adage that “as California goes, so goes the nation” has never been more true now that wagon loads of California businesses and families are heading for Texas and other red states. Mirroring caravans of “undocumented immigrants” crashing through America’s now-open southern border to escape oppressively impoverishing regimes, these and […]

Texas Power Freeze-Down Demonstrates Political Climate Craziness

February 22, 2021 by

6

By Larry Bell ~ Texas just sent a very chilling message to the rest of the nation about what to expect your life to be like with President Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan AKA, “Green New Deal,” in order to save the planet from overheating. It seems he’s already overachieving that goal. An unusual Arctic blast […]
