Wind And Solar Subsidies

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 […]

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, […]

August 19, 2020 by

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The push for renewable energy through a mix of federal, state, and local subsidies and mandates is not only putting the U.S. at risk of becoming perilously dependent on intermittent wind and solar power for its electricity. It is also providing a glide path for a hostile foreign power to […]

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

The only things ‘inevitable’ about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar are rocketing electricity prices and unstable power grids.

Climate Policies Harm Black And Brown Communities

January 21, 2020 by

By Peter Murphy ~ Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren at the most recent candidates’ debate in Iowa repeated the canard that climate change “particularly hits black and brown communities.” On this Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, it should be alerted that it is climate change policies promoted by her and fellow alarmists that would particularly […]

Scrap Energy Tax Favors For Better Reform

December 6, 2019 by

By Katie Tubb ~ It’s that time of year again when Congress, feeling the pressure of budget negotiations and the year’s end, provokes the issue of expired or soon-to-expire energy tax credits. Congress has on the table roughly a dozen renewable energy tax subsidies covering wind, solar, electric vehicles, biofuels, and others. There’s a host […]

A New Dark Age: California’s Blackouts Are Self-Inflicted

By Jarrett Stepman ~ California, the richest state in the nation—and one that’s often portrayed as the progressive harbinger of the future for the rest of the country—has been hit with its latest Third World-style disaster. On top of high poverty rates, skyrocketing homelessness, rising crime, and the return of medieval-sounding diseases, the state—specifically, the […]

More Buckets Of Icy Cold Energy Reality

By Paul Driessen ~ The full-court press is on for climate chaos disaster and renewable energy salvation. CNN recently hosted a seven-hour climate event for Democrat presidential aspirants. Every day brings more gloom-and-doom stories about absurd, often taxpayer-funded pseudo-scientific reports on yet another natural event or supposed calamity that alarmists insist is due to fossil […]

Ohio’s Renewables Subsidy Sausage

September 23, 2019 by

1

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ The people of Ohio recently witnessed a Sausage-O-Rama of energy policymaking. HB-6 is a mish-mash of energy legislation that bails out nuclear and coal, subsidizes solar, while completely ignoring wind. Natural gas, of course, needs no subsidy. These days it […]

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mary Kay Barton ~ Governor Andrew Cuomo and the far left’s latest darling, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, are “all in”for Big Wind. Indeed, Cortez lauded ‘Green New Deal‘ would entail industrializing vast swaths of rural-residential New York State with huge (bird-killing) industrial wind and solar factories, all while pushing an end to […]

Saved By Pseudo-Renewable Energy?

January 29, 2019 by

By Paul Driessen ~ The IPCC says it’s still possible to limit planetary warming to an additional 0.5 degrees C (0.9 F) “above pre-industrial levels” – but only if global CO2 emissions are halved by 2030 and zeroed out by 2050. So climate alarmists intend to carbon-tax, legislate and regulate our energy, factories, livelihoods, living […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Federal Senator for South Australia, Nick Xenophon has sacked his top South Australian candidate for correctly saying Labor’s plans for a 50 per cent renewable energy target is “f…ing mad” and will destroy the state. Xenophon’s party seems hijacked by irrational greens, with fellow Xenophon MP Rebekha Sharkie now ominously calling […]
