May 19, 2020 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ The “Praise the Lord” (PTL) empire that preacher Jim Bakker built with wife Tammy crumbled thirty years ago. Today, it seems like we’re being mesmerized again in the press and social media with the rhetoric about dispensing with the thousands of products from petroleum derivatives so we can save the world from human destruction […]

By Ronald Stein ~ Californians will continue to pay some of the highest costs for electricity and fuel use as the State unexpectedly collides catastrophically with the global pandemic that will impact businesses and employment for an unpredictable economic future.

By Ronald Stein ~ The only good news about the COVID-19 social change impacts on our lifestyles is that the travel bans, and lockdowns have cleaned the globe, flushing the murk from Venice’s canals, and we have seen cleaner air worldwide. Seeking to cash in on America’s response to the coronavirus crisis its wind and […]

March 12, 2020 by

By Ronald Stein ~ While the world is feverishly trying to reduce emissions from fossil fuel usage, we get hit with the horrific contagious Coronavirus COVID-19. We’ve seen extensive self-imposed social adjustments to transportation that are very similar to what will be required to live with less fossil fuels in the future. We’ve seen a […]

Could Global Cooling Silently Become A Reality?

February 25, 2020 by

4

By Ronald Stein ~ Trying to imply that cooling is right around the corner when we’re watching record-breaking warm ocean temperatures to me seems a big stretch, but current facts and the history around the five previous ice ages that came and melted before fossil fuels became recognizable words may be worthy of reviewing. The […]

China And India Rejecting Renewables For Coal-Fired Futures

February 21, 2020 by

By Ronald Stein ~ China and India are NOT buying into the global alarm movement. Never in human history have we seen two countries (China and India), each with over a billion people, in need of such gargantuan amounts of energy to keep their economies accelerating and their citizens alive. China and India are the […]

Hypocrites Preaching Green

January 29, 2020 by

By Ronald Stein ~ If you don’t know who Tom Steyer is, you should. He’s the guy riding in the internal combustion powered limousine that drops Al Gore off at his speaking engagements. Mr. Steyer, a billionaire former hedge fund manager, who has become the most influential environmentalist in American politics, made his billions from the […]

U.S. Continues To Dump Funds Into An Electrical Sinkhole

January 24, 2020 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ When I read the WSJ article “The Best-Laid Energy Plans” referencing Government planning and subsidies that were supposedly intended to make America the world’s green-electricity superpower, create millions of jobs, and supercharge the economy. It brings to mind the most terrifying nine words in the English language: ” I’m from the government, […]

Governor Newsom Doubling Down To Dismantle The California Economy

December 22, 2019 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ With California’s energy costs for electricity and fuels among the highest in the country, Governor Newsom just doubled down to increase inflation with actions to further reduce oil production and putting more electrical loads on a state that cannot generate enough electricity to meet its own needs. The Governor’s recent actions […]

Educational Deficiencies Lead To Doomsday Projections

November 28, 2019 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ Using microscopic sound bites from vast data on social media from celebrities like Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Barbara Streisand, and Meryl Streep that the Earth will end in ten years is an insult to the intellect of our students and educational system. So, if we’re not educated by reviewing wider ranges […]

Developing Nations Climate Activism Losers

November 24, 2019 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ For the poorest in the world there are more things that are far more important to survival than climate change. Third world countries are the big losers of today’s climate activism. Why? Because they still lack purified drinking water, sewage sanitation, adequate nutrition, reliable electricity (or any at all), adequate health […]

By Ronald Stein ~ California is about to take one giant step toward following Germany’s failed climate goals which should be a wake-up all for governments everywhere. Yes, you guessed it, our legislatures have authorized CalEPA in the 2019 – 2020 California State budget and Assembly Bill AB 74 to conduct studies and identify strategies […]

Message To California’s Newsom – Blame Fires On Uncleared Fuel, Not The Utility Company

November 12, 2019 by

3

By Ronald Stein ~ As California fires rage, nobody is taking responsibility for the unlimited “fuel” for the fires. Rather than addressing ways to reduce the amount of “fuel” awaiting the next spark, homeless campfire, or lightning strike, California Governor Newsom’s solution is for more litigation and a reorganization of a utility company to prevent devastating […]

Californians Are Voting With Their Feet

November 11, 2019 by

3

By Ronald Stein ~ Not unlike the Hebrews departing Egypt and the Okies exiting the dust and famine of the 1930’s Midwest, the number of Californians getting the heck out of Dodge so-to-speak is staggering. In just one decade about 5 million Californians left between 2004 and 2013. Roughly 3.9 million people came here from […]

Pseudo Scientists Wreak Havoc On Society’s Mental Stability With Fake Data

October 28, 2019 by

By Ronald Stein ~ Using tactics once reserved for reducing opponents in battle to psychotic imbeciles, pseudo scientists like the 175+ organizations active on climate change and their public out-criers who lead the Far-Left (Antifa, etc.) and the New Progressives (Democrats in Congress, etc.) use fake environmental data sound bites extracted from lengthy studies to upset society’s mental […]

October 20, 2019 by

By Ronald Stein ~ “God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the Courage to change the things I can change; and the Wisdom to know the difference.” The afore-quoted Serenity Prayer came to mind while I was writing this because it seems applicable to the world’s citizens who are trying […]

Green Tech’s Dark Side

August 13, 2019 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ The hype these days is to stop using those dirty fossil fuel driven cars and trucks and convert everyone to those clean electric vehicles. But wait! Before you jump onto the EV train, those EV’s have a very dark side of environmental atrocities and  non-existent transparency of human rights abuses associated […]

By Ronald Stein ~ Following the recent uprisings in Venezuela and France, the results of Australia’s May 18th election may have put California lawmakers on notice that California’s working class and blue collar voters may also be ready to express their opinions at the polls. In a remarkable and most unexpected outcome, Australia’s conservative Prime […]

The Green New Deal’s Epic Transportation And Commerce Fail

June 1, 2019 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ On the surface, the Green New Deal (GND) sounds enlightening.  Use a nonexistent super grid of renewable intermittent electricity energy to replace fossil fuels so we can all breath air with no emissions from energy production. But the renewable term in all these cases is not energy in its totality, but […]
