Big-Idea Energy Alternatives Are Costly And Puny

June 24, 2019 by

By Larry Bell ~ Those who believe in the existence of adequate non-fossil alternatives essential to achieve a “carbon-neutral” U.S. — much less global — energy balance anytime soon, or at any cost, are dreadfully misguided. Nevertheless, there are very understandable reasons why such delusions continue to persist. One reason behind this facetious fantasy has […]

Place Blame For Recent Tornadoes Where It Belongs

June 17, 2019 by

By Larry Bell ~ Tragically, there is nothing unique about the number or severity of more than 55 devastating tornadoes that tore through the outskirts of Kansas City, swept through Indiana and Ohio, and stretched eastward from Idaho and Colorado across eight states late last month. Nor, unfortunately, is there anything unique regarding all-too-alluring temptations […]

No, I’m not referring only to Russia, China, North Korea, and Iranian mullahs. Those threats are lurking in secret algorithms in the darkness of shadow bans, and are hidden under Silicon Valley censorship platforms. There is little […]

Climate Alarmists Follow Acid Rain Scare Playbook

By Larry Bell ~ There is nothing coincidental about common déjà vu features of a CO2 climate crisis-premised war on fossil fuels and a hysterically-hyped sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission acid rain environmental calamity a half-century ago. Both scams have claimed to be based upon dire computer model-based predictions calling for costly interventions. Both also involved […]

Senate Rude Awakening For Green New Dreamers

April 3, 2019 by

By Larry Bell ~ The terrifyingly naïve socialist Green New Deal (GND) proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offers the best example I can think of why 16-year-olds shouldn’t be given the right to vote. It’s not so much that I fear that Congress would actually succeed in enacting legislation to replace all fossil energy with windmills […]
