From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ No shortage of anti-energy agitators would LOVE IT if wind & solar were our primary energy providers with fossil fuels relegated as only minor players. Ok…. That’s crazy and impossible, but as an exercise we thought it would be fun […]

Those Millions Of New ‘Green’ Jobs Are Going To China And India

February 25, 2021 by

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The chief beneficiary of the incoming Biden administration’s climate agenda will be none other than the People’s Republic of China, the same outfit that brought the world COVID-19. Purveyors of renewable energy are eager to take advantage of Biden’s pledge to move the U.S. from fossil fuels to renewable energy […]

Wind And Solar Are Losing Ground To Gas

December 29, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The subsidies that never die — for wind and solar power — are back. With Christmas coming on the Lame Duck Congress elected to throw untold additional billions at renewables. What is amusing is that gas-fired power generation, a fossil fuel with no subsidy, is still growing faster than wind […]

Senate Sets Table Laden With Green Pork

October 2, 2020 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Caution! Arcane content ahead. The US Senate is sitting on what could quickly become the biggest green pork giveaway in history, but it is almost impossible to see, let alone discuss or criticize. Untold billions for renewables and their kin. This would be funny if it were not so ridiculous, […]

Reporting Renewable Energy Risks

July 2, 2020 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Joe Biden has drifted far to the left and made it clear that, if elected president, he would restrict or ban fracking, pipelines, federal onshore and offshore drilling, and use of oil, coal and even natural gas. He’s selected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as his climate and energy advisor and is expected […]

The Green Delusion Continues To Push Costs Upon The Poor

July 1, 2020 by

1

By Ronald Stein ~ Those marketing the green delusion have convinced themselves and the public that intermittent electricity from wind and solar are somehow “clean, green, renewable and sustainable”. They have successfully kept transparency from those paying for the green delusion of any information that would damage their message. Facts about greater human and ecological […]

It’s Time To Follow Mexico And Pull The Plug On “Renewables”

June 6, 2020 by

By Ronald Stein ~ The only things ‘inevitable’ about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar are rocketing electricity prices and unstable power grids. The only things ‘inevitable’ about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar are rocketing electricity prices and unstable power grids. Recognizing that industrial wind and solar electricity bring little to no value to […]

Weaknesses Of Wind And Solar: When Science And Reality Clash – Part 2

May 26, 2020 by

2

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Terigi Ciccone ~ In Part One we established a Rule of Thumb for electrical engineering which states: All Solar and Wind Power on an Electric Grid Must Be Backed Up With an Equal or Greater Amount of Fossil Fuel Power Running on Standby 100% OF The Time. There are those who claim […]

Dominion Energy Proposes 40% Rate Hike In Virginia To Pay For “Net Zero Carbon”

May 24, 2020 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In a sane world no electric company would propose a 40% rate increase. That Dominion Energy has just done this for Virginia shows how crazy net zero carbon laws really are. The Legislature has in effect ordered Dominion to spend untold billions of dollars rebuilding their power generation system by […]

Mexico Pulls The Plug On “Renewables”

May 23, 2020 by

By Ronald Stein ~ As Mexico is poised to plunge into its worst recession in recent-memory the leftist president is making cuts and pulling the plug on subsidy dependent intermittent power from wind and solar that has been driving up the cost of electricity for its financially challenged population. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador won […]

Wind And Solar Weaknesses – Part I

May 20, 2020 by

1

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Terigi Ciccone ~ So-called “Green energy” threatens our culture, our freedoms and our pocketbooks, yet provides no net electricity to our electrical networks. Zero-Zip-Nada. They remain a Green delusion. A bold statement, yes? Bolder still is the fact that wind and solar power plants are more efficient when they are not running […]

Planet Of The Humans Review: Exposing The Fallacy Of “Renewable” Energy

May 2, 2020 by

3

By Peter Murphy ~ Renewable energy from wind, solar and woodchips may one day make financial, practical and earthly sense, and enable the world to rely less on fossil fuels. But not today, and likely not ever, according to Michael Moore’s new documentary film, Planet of the Humans, which flays renewable energy as doing more […]

Wind And Solar Add Zero Value To The Grid

May 1, 2020 by

1

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Why is wind power and solar power, not making significant gains in providing a substantial amount of renewable electricity? The US has utilized, in its energy mix, about eight percent of wind and two percent solar for more than a decade. The reason it is not growing requires an understanding of […]

Alternative Energy Can’t Replace Hydrocarbons

By Larry Bell ~ As we all recognize, access to clean and reliable energy is fundamentally important to countless aspects of our lives, our social and economic communities, and our long-term abilities to live in healthy balance with natural ecosystems. So, this being the case, can we expect a new so-called “clean energy revolution” — […]

Renewable Energy Has Significant Downsides

January 6, 2020 by

3

By Peter Murphy ~ Wind and solar power will not replace fossil fuels—oil, coal and natural gas—any time soon; not in twelve or 30 years, and likely not in anyone’s lifetime who is alive today. The pursuit of solar and wind power also comes with a steep price, not just in higher utility bills and […]

How Do You Throw Away A Dead Wind Turbine?

September 17, 2019 by

10

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Contrary to popular opinion, the life cycle of a modern wind turbine is no more than 20 to 25 years. Since turbine blades cannot be burned and are not recyclable, the recommended option is landfill disposal. But not every landfill can even accept these massive structures, even after they are broken into […]
