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

January 24, 2020 by


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, […]

Battery Fantasy

September 5, 2019 by


From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ Since solar power and wind power and only produce electricity 25 to 30 percent of the time (and sometimes not at all) they need to be backed up by something. No biggie, we’ll just build lots of giant batteries like […] Hits Green Power Utilities In Stockholder Meetings

December 27, 2018 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Two heavyweight skeptics are taking on the “we’re-so-green” electric power utilities where it counts, by becoming stockholders with a voice. Fred Palmer and Steve Milloy have launched and they are collecting proxies, filing stockholder motions and sending letters to senior management. This action all in the name of stopping […]

Renewable Power Australia – Wind Power Is Killing South Australia

July 25, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Green power will kill heavy industry in South Australia: South Australia’s power crisis was a “wake-up call” for other states on the impact on consumers of subsidised renewable energy, particularly wind power, a Liberal senator has warned. Chris Back called for a morat­orium on new wind farms, and no more subsidies […]

Obama’s Green Energy Plans Kill Jobs, Hurt Consumers, And Cost Taxpayers

June 21, 2016 by


By Marita Noon ~ Proponents of green energy like to point out how the costs have come down—and they have. Renewable energy costs, such as wind and solar, are not expected to equal fossil fuel costs anytime in the near future, and recent growth has been propped up by mandates and tax incentives. But there […]

Renewable Power Australia – South Australia Pretending To Save The Planet, But Actually Just Killing Jobs

November 12, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ South Australia has ridiculously high power prices, in part because it relies so heavily on expensive green power (which in turn demands extra subsidies). High power prices kills heavy industry in particular and South Australia is fast becoming a basket case, with unemployment at 7.7 per cent. So it is obscene […]

Congressmen Put Heat On ‘Deceptive’ Rooftop Solar Leases

December 31, 2014 by


By Josh Siegel ~ A different sort of green energy issue has sparked bipartisan action on Capitol Hill as lawmakers move to address allegations of deceptive practices in sales of rooftop solar panels. Earlier this month, 12 Republican members of the House of Representatives wrote to the Federal Trade Commission, warning that leasing solar panels […]

Renewable Power Australia – Scrap This Expensive Energy Target. It Is An Insult To Our Reason

August 27, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Why are we being forced to use more expensive green power when it makes no difference to a global warming that’s actually paused for 16 years anyway? It simply makes no sense, and to compromise like this is to compromise with unreason – and green carpetbaggers: Subsidies on renewable-energy power generation […]

The Ethanol Boondoggle

July 30, 2014 by


But Won’t Ethanol Help Stop Global Warming? By Mark Alexander~ “Some are weatherwise, some are otherwise.” –Benjamin Franklin (1735) Here in the mountains of east Tennessee, we distill corn mash to produce a product provincially known as Moonshine – because it is often produced and transported under cover of darkness. Arguably, it is a more […]

Britain Chooses Nuclear Over Green Power

October 19, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Britain pulls the plug on the the latest grand plan for green power, which turns out to be as ludicrously expensive as most such schemes: A £30bn scheme to harness green electricity from the Severn Estuary has been scrapped by the Government as it confirms the location of eight new nuclear power […]

Renewable Power – Clean And Green – Well, Not Really

December 28, 2009 by


The last part of that title should really read Not At All. Let’s pretend for a minute that in this current trend of going clean and green that a medium to large sized city in the U.S. wants to cut back on its Carbon Dioxide (CO2) greenhouse gas emissions by closing down the large coal […]

Carpetbaggers Demand Even More

December 23, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt Just another demonstration of how green power is built on huge government handouts, all funded by you: AGL threatened not to invest in alternative energy forms until the Government addressed a collapse in the price of certificates designed to encourage investment. The threat highlights the risks hanging over $30 billion of expected […]
