By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ With the incoming Biden administration eager to unleash a regulatory reign of terror throughout the land, people should be prepared for their all-knowing betters in Washington to make more of their decisions for them, whether its in energy, healthcare, and what they do with their disposal income (assuming they have […]

December 28, 2020 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ Kermit the Frog once famously quipped “It’s not easy being green.” The nation of Indonesia is no doubt finding this is true — especially as it attempts to transition away from fossil fuels toward so-called green energy. As reported in the publication Mongabay, Indonesia is currently embarking on an aggressive program […]

The GND Would Ground Air Force One

September 3, 2020 by

3

By Ronald Stein ~ According to Biden’s climate plan, America must run on 100 percent emissions-free intermittent electricity by 2050 virtually grounding Air Force One and all transportation industries that needs more than electricity to function. Democrats are determined to deliver California’s dysfunctional renewable energy debacle to all. If Joe Biden, AOC, and her Squad get […]

Green Pork

By Mark Hendrickson, Ph.D. ~ We all know what happens when government decides to interfere with free markets by subsidizing the production of something that is uneconomical with the subsidies: Taxpayers shoulder the costs and cronyism is the name of the game because subsidies go to the politically connected. [An important economic: Please don’t call […]

Green Policies Compound Racial Injustice

June 16, 2020 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ The horrific murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis policeman while his three cowardly colleagues looked on has now sparked many Green groups to rightly condemn racial injustice. The irony is that the policies these Green groups have long advocated harm the most vulnerable in society, including but not exclusively, blacks and […]

The Dark Side Of Renewable Electricity

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 Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Join me in a story that traveled two decades from 1999 to early this year, when efforts to reduce premature death and childhood blindness in the developing world may finally reach fruition. This can occur through the use of a special grain called Golden Rice. It’s daffodil like color occurs […]

The Green Assault On Home Ownership

January 15, 2020 by

3

By Duggan Flanakin ~ With millennials postponing or wholly ignoring marriage while dealing with heavy student loan debt and greater mobility, home ownership for many Americans under 35 may not be as important a goal as it has been for the entirety of the American experiment. Higher prices even for entry-level homes may also be a […]

Can We Go Back To The Pre-Fossil Fuel Era?

December 2, 2019 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ Seems like an easy yes or no answer, but there are numerous financial costs and social change ramifications of going Green that make the answer weighty. If everyone can recall history, the worlds already experienced life without fossil fuels just a few short centuries ago. We never had the oil industry […]

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 […]

Green “Nirvanas” Beset By Crime Waves

From the team at CFACT ~ A crime wave is underway in the once-Golden state of California, and another crime wave is soon likely in the once-Empire state of New York. California Governor Gavin Newsom and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo are among the leading crusaders who are imposing policies to address climate change. They […]

The Green New Deal Isn’t Just Expensive. It’s Also Bad Environmental Policy.

November 15, 2019 by

2

By Nicolas Loris ~ We’re not hearing much about the Green New Deal these days, but it’s still a priority for some candidates, as anyone who’s attended a recent Bernie Sanders rally can attest. Criticism of the Green New Deal tends to center on cost and rightly so. It would be extremely expensive. Researchers estimate […]

“Electrify Everything” Policies Would Eliminate Gas Heating And Cooking

November 7, 2019 by

3

By Steve Goreham ~ Natural gas and propane serve as excellent low-cost fuels for heating and cooking. Last year, natural gas usage grew faster than renewables in the United States. But advocates of green energy policies would eliminate gas for heating and cooking. According to the US Department of Energy, since 2007, US consumption of […]

Hydropower Works

October 7, 2019 by

2

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The Australia-based ScienceAlert.com, in an article by publisher Carly Cassella, has a bright new idea. Since dams are bad anyway, why not knock all of them down (at least the ones that generate electricity), drain the reservoirs, and install solar panels in their stead. Cassella admits that, at least for now, the […]

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 […]

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 […]

San Antonio Cooks Up Its Own “Green New Deal”

May 16, 2019 by

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The recent defeat of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” in Congress may have given some the impression that her grandiose and bizarre scheme to transform the United States into a green Utopia was finished, once and for all. Nothing could be further from the truth. While […]

By Kevin Mooney ~ A self-described army of young people devoted to climate change activism are taking their show on the road to build support for national Democrats’ Green New Deal and to counter business interests that favor fossil fuel use. The Sunrise Movement first attracted media attention when hundreds of its followers organized sit-ins […]

Senate Rude Awakening For Green New Dreamers

April 3, 2019 by

1

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 […]

Green Land Grabs On Steroids

By Paul Driessen ~ Special interest environmental groups got stung recently by an 8-0 U.S. Supreme Court opinion that held private landowners cannot be compelled to forego future economic uses of their property and at their own expense convert their land into suitable habitat for an endangered frog. Now radical greens are eyeing even bigger […]

The Green New Deal Would Take Us Back To Medieval Times

February 11, 2019 by

By Ron Stein ~ A hopeful, non-binding resolution has been introduced to both houses of Congress. Representative Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, (D) for the 14th District of New York, god bless her fast beating heart, and Senator Ed Markey (D) from Massachusetts are jump starting again the notion that the world can change in its entirety in […]

The Green New Deal Is A Leftist Politician’s Worst Enemy

February 9, 2019 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The wacky Green New Deal has two features which, taken together, will make it a nightmare for Democrats in the upcoming national elections. First, it is a wonderful wish list of goals the Democrats hold dear. But second, the actions it calls for are impossible. In particular, they would be […]
