June 19, 2019 by


By Paul Driessen ~ Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently announced his “Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice.” While it might be viewed as a Green New Deal Lite, the plan would inflict enormous economic, environmental and societal pain on most of the nation, for no climate benefits.

May 22, 2014 by

The Green Gulag

February 21, 2014 by

Australian Energy Minister Martin Ferguson Winks – Clean Energy Will Cost More For Less

November 9, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The White Paper on Energy delivered yesterday by Australian Resources and Energy Minister Martin Ferguson still kowtows to the green movement in way that should embarrass him. – Ferguson still maintains we need “clean energy” for a probably non-solution to a possible non-problem of global warming. – He is still forced […]

By Romina Boccia ~ During a speech this week, President Obama presented Congress with a 5-point to-do list, which, as the President proudly proclaimed, would fit on a sticky note.

The Green Jobs, Clean Energy Scam

September 9, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba There will probably never be a definitive calculation of how much money the United States (and other nations) has wasted on Green programs, litigation, grants, research, and projects such as those involving “renewable” or “clean” energy.

Reject All Energy Mandates: It’s Just Another Subsidy

December 8, 2010 by


By Nicolas Loris With cap and trade out of the realm of possibilities, Members of Congress have turned their attention to mandating so-called clean energy.

Carbon Dioxide Riches Disappear

September 1, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba The headlines report the way the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been lying and some, myself included, are calling for an end to this snakes’ nest of global deception.
