Renewable Power – A Ticking Bomb

March 9, 2010 by


There is a looming problem with the major shift towards renewable power, a problem that no one is mentioning, not in the U.S., not in Europe, not in Australia, nowhere where there is this mad rush to construct these plants. The problem is that renewable power just cannot supply the power that is needed absolutely […]

Energy Suicide: Unplugging America

March 5, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba What was that most homeowners and apartment dwellers most feared in the recent record-breaking blizzard that hit the northeast? The answer is losing electricity and that is why the news of the event was always filled with reports of what towns had lost electricity due to downed tree limbs. This was followed […]

Solar Subsidies Fail To Create Green Jobs, Again

February 11, 2010 by


By Brandon Stewart As we reported in today’s Morning Bell,  ABC News reports that despite massive amounts of stimulus funding being spent on wind farms—nearly $2 billion—the vast majority (80%) of it has been spent on overseas companies. ABC contacted Russ Choma at the Investigative Reporting Workshop who suggested that the project has resulted in nearly 6,000 […]

The Objections To Wind Farms

February 10, 2010 by


By Michael Fumento Despite massive subsidies, wind power still only provides about two percent of U.S. energy. Part of the problem is inherent. It takes a lot of turbines to produce the power that a single coal-fired or nuke plant can produce. So wind farms are going to comprise a lot of turbines. And that […]

President Obama’s Clean Energy Renewable Power Turkey

January 28, 2010 by


Last night in the President’s State Of The Union Address, he mentioned ‘Clean Energy’ ten times, also hyping up Renewable power. I want you to picture this. You buy a brand new car straight off the showroom floor. Each day of the week you drive that car to work. Out of the five days in […]

More Political Spin On Wind Power

January 23, 2010 by

Will we ever be told the truth about any of this? This story was reported yesterday. For those without any knowledge, this story might actually be encouraging to see, and because the dates translate to […]

Obama’s Green Jobs Plan Will Do More Harm Than Good

January 9, 2010 by


By Nick Loris On the campaign trail Barack Obama promised if he were elected president, he would create 5 million “green collar” jobs. Today President Obama announced $2.3 billion in tax credits for a clean energy economy will ostensibly create 17,000 jobs. “Building a robust clean energy sector is how we will create the jobs […]

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 […]

Life In A ‘Climate Change’ Box

December 24, 2009 by


By Paul Driessen “Life in a box is better than no life at all,” playwright Tom Stoppard famously opined, through the personage of Rosencrantz. (Or was it Guildenstern?) That’s lucky for us, because our energy, environmental and economic policies have certainly put us in a box – and there is no easy way out. Congress […]

Solar Shutdown: Feinstein To Block Energy Projects

December 23, 2009 by


By Nick Loris TonyfromOz prefaces ….. So, let me see if I’ve got this right. The good Democrat Senator from California has put the kibosh on the very same renewable power plants her State, her Party, her Government, her Boss the President, and virtually everyone pushing this ridiculous debate are calling for, even if these […]

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 […]

How Wind Power Generates Only Red Ink

November 17, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt Wind is perhaps the greatest snake oil being sold by green carpetbaggers – other than carbon permits, of course: THE (British) Government’s renewable energy strategy is in tatters after a report exposing the true costs of generating electricity by wind power. An internal document from the National Grid, seen by the Sunday […]

Florida’s New Solar Power Plant

November 16, 2009 by


Not long after President Obama took office, he made the bold statement that he wanted to double the generation of renewable power during his first term. It seems a fairly comfortable thing to say, because, starting from so low a base, then doubling that might actually seem achievable. However, the reality is that these plants […]

Why Copenhagen Climate Talks Will Fail – The New China Syndrome (Part 3)

October 7, 2009 by


PART THREE OF THREE PARTS In the two earlier posts, I showed the inconvenient truth that the UN is not telling you. On the surface, you might view the UN as an altruistic, almost benevolent body that provides a voice for those in the Third World who have no real voice. We who are already […]

Wind Power: An Expensive And Inefficient Way To Reduce CO2

September 15, 2009 by


By Nick Loris In a speech in May, President Obama pushed for our nation to transition to renewable energy and pointed to Denmark as an example of proof it can be done: Unfortunately. America produces less than 3 percent of our electricity through renewable sources of energy like wind and solar — less than 3 […]

The Limitations Of Renewable Power (Part 4)

August 28, 2009 by


CONCENTRATING SOLAR POWER. UPDATE This Post was originally written in 2009. In the original Post, I used a reference to a site that had a simplified diagram which I used for explanation of this process. Since that time, that Project has folded and did not proceed to construction, and the link became invalid. Since that […]

The Outrageous Claims From The Renewable Power Sector (Part 2)

August 18, 2009 by


PART 2 OF 2 PARTS. That title of itself is a pretty bold statement, but it is one that can actually be backed up. Those supporters of the three ‘flavour of the month’ renewable power methods would be rightly offended at such a statement, but uninformed readers who go to these sites and see those […]

Greens Demand The Power That’s Ruining Germany

August 18, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Recently, this huge Bill, for the CPRS (Carbon Trading) and Renewable power targets was voted down in the Australian Senate. The Government has decided to remove the Renewable Energy target part of the bill and make it a Bill of its own. The debate is becoming quite vigourous here […]

This image shows an artist’s impression of what a future nuclear power plant might look like. Click on the image to open it in a new and larger window. This shows a fourth generation Nuclear Power Plant, and in this case it is a Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) Power Plant.

Lies, Damned Lies, And Statistics (Part One)

May 28, 2009 by


PART ONE OF TWO PARTS In this current hysterical climate of anthropogenic global warming, that has now had its title changed to Climate Change, where the emissions of Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse gas are being blamed for every ill known to mankind, I’m going to shine a light directly on what is perceived as the culprit, […]

Replacing The Failed Kyoto Protocol

May 5, 2009 by


In Copenhagen later this year the United Nations will meet to work on an aggressive replacement for the Kyoto Protocol. This original Protocol failed, and some might say failed miserably, because not one Country could achieve the targets laid down by the Protocol. So, an effective replacement will be needed, and the difficulty will be […]

Kyoto – A Perspective (Part 36)

June 11, 2008 by


AN ABUNDANCE OF INCONVENIENT TRUTHS I’ve included this pie chart again because I want you to look at with more than just a cursory glance, and to achieve that aim, I’m going to refer you back to it a couple of times during this post. I’m a cautious guy, and if I commit something to […]
