March 19, 2021 by

2

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ Why were federal tax subsidies extended for wind and solar by Congress? Again. For the umpteenth time! We are against subsidies because they distort markets. Those politicians who support these market-distorting policies should at least be forced to answer the […]

February 6, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Virginia’s 100% renewables mandate has been estimated to cost its people billions of dollars, but a more realistic estimate is trillions. Dominion Energy, the big Virginia utility, must know this, but they are hiding it so they can build a lot of expensive wind and solar generating facilities. The more […]

Solar Panels Generate Mountains Of Waste – And Heat The Planet

September 19, 2020 by

2

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The problem of solar panel waste is now becoming evident. As environmental journalist Emily Folk admits in Renewable Energy Magazine, “when talking about renewable energy, the topic of waste does not often appear.” She attributes this to the supposed “pressures of climate change” and alleged “urgency to find alternative energy sources,” saying […]

Reuse, Recycle, Or Just Reduce Solar Panel Waste?

August 30, 2020 by

3

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Is solar power truly Green? This question is important, because in today’s world, that which is Green is favored even if it is more expensive and less reliable. We have been taught that solar is Green. But does it pass the Three R’s Test that for 50 years has been the Green […]

July 24, 2020 by

4

By Ronald Stein ~ The rage these days from the Green New Deal, the Paris Accord, and the recent Democrats Clean Energy Climate Policy are all focused on renewable energy to replace our demands from fossil fuels. But wait – renewable energy from wind and solar is only renewable ELECTRICITY! At best, that renewable electricity […]

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 […]

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ On May 12 the Interior Department gave approval for the largest solar power project in the U.S. to be built by Warren Buffett’s NV Energy company on 7100 acres of Federal lands in the Mohave Desert. At a cost of one billion dollars, it pales into insignificance on the days […]

“Renewables” Scams On The Ropes

May 6, 2020 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ The device you’re reading now is likely powered by nuclear, gas, or coal-fired electricity. There’s a smaller chance it may be powered by hydro-electricity or biomass (burning trees, as if that’s Green). There’s little chance, despite billions spent, that it came from wind or solar.  The climate folks and “renewables” corporate […]
