Wind And Solar Are Already Costing You Money

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ We now generate 5% of our energy from wind and 1% from solar. It is a safe argument that once we quarry the cement required and mine and refine the steel and aluminum and mine the rare earths that every wind turbine requires, Industrial Wind Turbines can not even be […]

Turbine Trouble

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ We already know many of the serious problems with industrial wind power. It is expensive, heavily subsidized (a hidden tax), unreliable, causes negative health impacts, kills large birds of prey and bats and can be maddening to people who live […]

Batteries Cannot Make Renewables Reliable

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Utilities are starting to experiment with adding batteries to wind and solar projects. These storage projects are feeding the mistaken belief that batteries can cure the intermittency that makes wind and solar unworkable as a reliable source of power. The reality is that these battery projects are trivial in size […]

Sorry Kids – The Next Energy Alternative Is Not Here, Yet

By Ron Stein ~ The thousands of young climate change activists in more than one hundred countries that played hooky to march to save the climate on March 15th were vague on their definition of “renewables”. The mass hysteria among politicians, the press, and environmentalists is a constant bombardment about renewable energy and the goal […]

A Brutal Example Of Why 100% Renewables Can’t Work

February 5, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The brutal cold wave that just struck America provides a stark example of why 100% renewables cannot possibly work. Once the massive high pressure system was in place there was almost no wind, so no significant wind power. And the coldest temperatures by far were at night or early morning, […]

Saved By Pseudo-Renewable Energy?

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 […]

Platte River Power’s “Green” Folly

January 3, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In the wacky game of power generating utilities going green, Colorado’s Platte River Power Authority is a true leader. Today they get 65 percent of their juice from coal, but their new green goal is to be “emissions free” by 2030. “Emissions free” refers to harmless CO2 emissions. As I […]
