By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Those who support the Green New Deal (GND) want what they claim to be the only real solution to the global warming problem which is solar power, and other so-called renewables to save our planet from the ravages of fossil fuel.

By Andrew Bolt ~ The Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palasczcuk, was promoting green energy at the Clare Solar Farm. Resources Minister Matt Canavan calculates the astonishing waste: “The Clare Solar Farm stands to get something like $340 million in subsidies over the next 13 years  for 5 jobs! That works out at $60 million a job.” […]

Solar Lies

By Craig Rucker ~ Wind and solar lobbyists like to claim that their industry is “sustainable.” They couldn’t sustain them long without taxpayer subsidies and “feed-in tariffs” that guarantee them high prices for any electricity they produce whether power companies want it or not. Now Elon Musk’s solar power company is in hot water with […]

How Environmental Groups Are Responding To Trump’s ‘Solar Wall’ Pitch

June 26, 2017 by

By Fred Lucas ~ President Donald Trump’s idea of putting solar panels on his long-promised border wall hasn’t gained a lot of support among top environmental lobbying groups—even though the organizations have long backed solar power as a key renewable energy. “The problem with talking about solar panels on Trump’s border wall is that it’s […]

By Nicolas Loris ~ Innovation is a wonderful thing but can also serve as a reminder of just how good we have it. Take the journey of the solar-powered plane, for example. The Solar Impulse 2 is an airplane powered by solar panels and uses batteries at night. In promotion of weening the world off […]

Rooftop Solar Companies Will Only Play If The Game Is Stacked In Their Favor

Three major, but very different, solar entities—that would not exist without such political preference—are now facing demise. By Marita Noon ~ The past couple of weeks have highlighted the folly of the energy policies favored by left-leaning advocacy agencies that, rather than allowing consumers and markets to choose, require government mandates and subsidies. Three major, […]

Media Outcry? Solar Energy Is Incinerating Birds Mid-Flight

By Alatheia Larsen ~ Renewable energy is the future, so the greens and the liberal media keep saying. But it turns out that a solar energy project in Nevada is creating a lethal solar flux that singes, blinds, and even vaporizes birds. So where’s the media outcry?

By Nicolas Loris ~ President Obama is having a hard time with the definition of free market. The most recent example came from his remarks at the National Clean Energy Summit, an event hosted by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to promote solar power.

Earth-Friendly Energy Is Anything But

September 29, 2014 by

1

By Deroy Murdock ~ Environmentalists worship solar energy and wind power as Earth-friendly answers to their ecological prayers. Tortoises, bats, butterflies, and bald eagles beg to differ. Perhaps because solar panels and industrial wind farms lack emissions, they seem “clean.” Despite their pristine appearance, however, these “green” electricity sources hammer Mother Nature – often fatally.

By Viv Forbes ~ The sun is the most important energy source on Earth. It provides our daily warmth and light and the rotation and orbit of the earth turn its steady output into fluctuating day and night, summer and winter. Solar energy powers the growth of all trees, grasses, herbs, crops and algae; it […]

Clouds On The Solar Horizon: Scams, Fraud Are Rampant

By Marita Noon ~ Consumers considering installing solar panels on their rooftops have far more to think through than the initial decision to “go solar.” They may search for the best price, only to discover, as customers in central Florida did, that after paying $20,000 to $40,000 for their systems, they are stuck with installations […]

By Tom McLaughlin ~ I don’t want to buy any windmills and I don’t want to buy any solar panels. Most especially though – I don’t want to pay for other people to buy them either. But my government is taking my money and giving it to them. I don’t like that. I don’t like […]

Residential Rooftop Solar Power

August 11, 2012 by

INTRODUCTION Is rooftop solar power in a residential household application an economically viable way to supply residential power? The short answer is no. The long answer is still no, and that needs careful explanation. In recent years there have been ploys to make it seem that there could be a way to make it viable, […]

THE PURPOSE OF THE EXERCISE We are told that the emissions of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) are the main cause of Climate Change, or Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW). While those man made emissions of CO2 come from a number of sources, by far the largest contributor is the electrical power generation sector which emits around […]

The Major Physical Impossibility Of Solar Thermal Power

October 14, 2010 by

1

This first part here may seem boring, but it is absolutely critical when discussing this matter. If you pass a single wire through a magnetic field, a flow of electrons is induced in that wire, hence, pretty basically, you have generated electrical power, the flow of electrons. So, it stands to reason that if that […]
