American Cities And Others Moving To Ban Natural Gas And Repeat Germany’s Climate Failures

October 2, 2019 by


By Ronald Stein ~ American cities such as Berkeley, San Jose, San Francisco, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Albuquerque, and other U.S. cities are moving to ban natural gas as a step toward becoming carbon free in the next few decades. They’re about to take one giant step toward Germany’s failed climate goals which should […]

U.S. Electrical Power Sector CO2 Emissions Are Down!

July 10, 2013 by


Why? Is It Because Of Wind Power? Well, no! More correctly, it seems that all those wind towers are just for show. That’s a pretty bold thing to say, and to back it up requires some in depth explanation. What is true is that those Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions are down, and in fact 7.5% […]

Renewable Power Fail – As Usual – August 2010

November 22, 2010 by


THE EVER INCREASING NUMBERS OF RENEWABLE POWER PLANTS RESULTS IN AN INCREASE IN CO2 EMISSIONS. This may seem a strange thing to say, but read the post and it shows exactly why this is in fact happening. Some may wonder why I am doing this analysis on a month by month basis, as, really, there’s […]

Renewable Power Fail – As Usual – July 2010

October 18, 2010 by


You don’t need to read too much these days to be aware of the huge increase in the number of renewable power plants, especially those huge wind towers. In fact, the U.S. currently leads the World in the total power produced from Wind Power Generation. In all, the U.S. now has a Nameplate Capacity total […]

Renewable Power Fail – As Usual – June 2010

September 27, 2010 by


June, the first month of a hot Summer showed a marked increase in the consumption of electrical power across the U.S. With this quite large increase in power consumption, and in the current political environment, you might expect that Renewable Power would have aided the overall total increase with an increase in power production from […]

Renewable Power Fail – As Usual – May 2010

August 19, 2010 by


With all the rhetoric being spoken of in respect of the need to move away from coal fired power because of the emissions of Carbon Dioxide, now labelled as a dangerous Greenhouse Gas, and the imperative of moving towards the use of renewable methods to generate the electrical power we need, it’s worthwhile looking at […]

Renewable Power Fail – As Usual – April 2010

July 23, 2010 by


This post continues the monthly series that shines a high intensity spotlight on how Renewable Power is failing on a huge scale to deliver electrical power to consumers. The spin from politicians and supporters of Renewable Power is that it is the way of the future, and can be used to replace traditional methods of […]

Why A Price On Carbon (Dioxide) Is Nothing More Than A Great Big New Tax

July 13, 2010 by


Fill a standard sized glass (about the same size as would hold a can of Coke) with water from the tap and have it close by as you read this. First off, read that title again. What infuriates me is that when people make statements on this, they say how we need to place a […]

Electricity – Paying Three Times For The Same Thing, And Some Unintended Consequences (PART 1)

February 3, 2010 by


PART ONE OF TWO PARTS Don’t you just love the way Politicians find new ways to gouge you. They don’t call it a tax, and won’t hear of anyone who does, in fact, roundly vilifying anyone who does dare call it a tax. Then they find a way to give it a name that makes […]

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 […]

17% CO2 Emissions Reduction – Are You Joking?

November 26, 2009 by


Yesterday, President Obama announced a target for emissions reduction that the U.S. will take to the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference. That target will be a 17% reduction in the emissions of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) by the year 2020. IT’S A PHYSICAL IMPOSSIBILITY. This will be a long post, because something as technical and involved as […]

The Future For Electrical Power After Waxman Markey And Kerry Boxer (Part 2)

November 3, 2009 by


PART TWO OF FOUR PARTS In the first post of this series, I mentioned how these two Bills currently before the Congress are nothing more than a huge new tax, mainly on electrical power, which has become a staple of everyday life. We are told that the intent of the Bills is to reduce the […]
