UK Says 100% Renewables Won’t Work

May 22, 2019 by

October 7, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg warns that just to meet the renewable energy targets of the Labor states would cost us $41 billion and require another 4800 wind towers to wreck our views.

Obama Legacy Will Be Power Blackouts

June 8, 2016 by


By Larry Bell ~ President Obama is burning his so-called bridges to a “green energy” future that will leave America’s families and industries powerlessly impoverished.
