Nevada Lithium Mine, Key To “Green” Energy, Opposed By Greens

September 29, 2021 by

2

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ In a drama involving two conflicting goals of the environmental movement and the Biden administration – “saving” the planet from climate change and “saving” an endangered species — a proposed lithium mine on federal land in western Nevada may be brought low by – of all things — buckwheat. Two […]

Proposed Green Ecocide Law Does Not Work

July 9, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ This is a funny story. The greens are hot to have what they call an Ecocide Law. This new international law would make illegal a bunch of things they do not approve of. So now a green group, the Stop Ecocide Foundation, has produced a proposed law. The problem is […]

Electric Power Fantasies Are Lining Up

June 16, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Seems like every big policy gun wants to take a shot at fantasizing the decarbonization and electrification of the energy system. No doubt that is where the government policy analysis money is going. Sadly I am on the wrong side of the issue, money-wise, but it sure is fun flogging […]

A Good Example Of A Bad Environmental Justice Study

May 8, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Biden’s so-called environmental justice push is going to bring on a big wave of bogus research. A really big report just came out so I want to chop on it a bit. Not just for its specific fallacies, but also as typical of what we are going to see a […]

A New Abnormal Of Rolling Blackouts Under Biden Energy Plan

October 8, 2020 by

0

By Larry Bell ~ Power blackouts that rolled across California cities and towns during an August 13-14 heat wave offer a warning glimpse of much more dire consequences we can absolutely count on occurring with enactment of the Biden campaign’s “Build Back Better” proposal to immediately eliminate fracking on all public lands, and virtually eliminate […]

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 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 […]

Checklist Of Green Deal Cost Elements

April 19, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Green Deal proposals are springing up around the world. The core concept is zero CO2 emissions via decarbonization. The proponents of these Green Deals deliberately avoid cost estimates because the costs are horrendous. To help force these huge costs out into the open I have developed the following simple checklist […]

Climate Fear Of (Everyone Else) Flying

March 5, 2020 by

1

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Just over a year ago, newly elected U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) and U.S. Sen. Edward Markey (D, MA) shocked the world by proposing a Green New Deal. One of its more controversial provisions was a proposal to “build out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.” […]

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 […]

Greens Intimidating Big Business

January 10, 2020 by

0

By Peter Murphy ~ “Big Business” has been portrayed in history as intimidating and domineering in society over small business competitors, workers and politicians. In some ways that remains true. However, the larger truth is that big business is a paper tiger, easily intimidated. No segment of society knows this better than the Green climate […]

Green Civil War In Germany?

January 3, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The stage is set for a big fight between two green Titans — the Green Party of Germany and Greenpeace Germany. They sound similar and used to be so, but no longer. When it comes to climate change, Greenpeace is a leading Action Now! radical group, while the Green Party […]

From the team at CFACT ~ Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, the former Vice President, recently delivered a message for blue collar workers in America’s vital energy industries: you are going to lose your jobs. Pound sand; let them eat cake – pick your metaphor. Biden admitted: “The answer is yes,” to a question posed to […]

A Year Of Ineffective Climate Madness Looms

December 27, 2019 by

8

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The year 2019 saw the rapid rise of climate hysteria, but as the saying goes: “You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.” Now that the hysteria is firmly established and well organized, it is sure to get bigger and louder. But I see very little coming from it except the noise, as […]

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 […]

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 […]

Showering With Soap … Made From Straw?

From the team at CFACT ~ Every time you lather up and take a shower, the soap or shampoo you use is filled with a variety of chemicals. Of course, the levels at which they exist in your bubbles are not toxic to your health, nevertheless, scientists are always looking for better ways to reduce […]

Thank You AOC!

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ Thank you, AOC for your “public service!” We’re serious…sort of. At a time when politicians and pundits have focused most of their attention on the outrage of the day and a core set of issues in the culture wars, AOC […]

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 […]

Fear, Loathing, Intolerance – And Worse

May 17, 2019 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Throughout history despots had effective ways of reducing dissension in the ranks. Inquisitors burned heretics. Nazi’s burned books – before taking far more extreme measures. Soviets employed famines, gulags, salt mines and executions. ChiComs and other tyrants starved, jailed and murdered millions. Today’s Green New Dealers and their allies have mapped […]

San Antonio Cooks Up Its Own “Green New Deal”

May 16, 2019 by

1

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 […]

Here’s The Dam Deal: Build More Dams

April 16, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ “Green Insanity Is Flooding Towns and Destroying Lives” is an important article in American Thinker by columnist Joe Herring. His article is about perverse green practices in the operation of America’s existing system of flood control dams, but it also applies to the need for new dams. Our national flood […]

Green New Deal Fails In The Senate

March 28, 2019 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The Green New Deal was designed to “mobilize every aspect of American society on a scale not seen since World War II.” That’s how Freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s fact sheet pitched the plan. Yesterday it was shot down 57-0 by the Senate.  The entire Republican caucus and three Democrats voted against […]
