By Larry Bell ~ So, maybe some of you seriously imagine that America is really going to successfully implement a Green New Dementia model of switching from recently achieved fossil-fueled energy independence (80% of U.S. supply) to planet-climate-saving windmills and sunbeams (that intermittently produce 3% or less)? Then, in addition, we’re going to replace 98% […]

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 […]

Federal Spending Alone Can’t Buy Energy Innovation

April 15, 2021 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ Committees in the House and Senate are scheduled Thursday to hold hearings on energy innovation. The hearings come in the wake of the American Jobs Plan and the Biden administration’s budget, including massive proposals for taxpayer-backed research, development, demonstration, and commercialization, particularly for energy technologies. While there is a role for […]

Cities, Countries, And Economies Were Built With Derivatives From Oil, Not By Electricity

April 10, 2021 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ Before world leaders move too fast to consummate their climate policies, they need to be cognizant of two “aha” moments: 1) wind and solar can only generate intermittent electricity, and 2) electricity cannot manufacture the oil derivatives that are the basis of the thousands of products that have built the world’s […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Power system design can be extremely complex but there is one simple number that is painfully obvious. At least it is painful to the advocates of wind and solar power, which may be why we never hear about it. It is a big, bad number. To my knowledge this big […]

America’s Light Usage Reveals Insanity Of Relying On Weather-Dependent Wind And Solar

March 9, 2021 by
