The Benefits That Coal Fired Power Gave Us – UPDATE May 2021

May 24, 2021 by


By Anton Lang ~ UPDATE – 24 May 2021 This Post was originally written back in May of 2016, five years ago. Since then, the EIA has changed the location, and the heading of both of the images shown at the original Post. The change also made the original links disappear as well. So, what […]

The Benefits That Coal Fired Power Gave Us

May 13, 2016 by


By Anton Lang ~ Is there information anywhere which can effectively show the benefits of coal fired power? Could that information be used to show what is happening now in China, to show some context as to why they are constructing new technology coal fired plants like there was no tomorrow? I found some information […]

HuffPo Writer: We Should Unplug Our Energy-Burning Christmas Decorations

December 28, 2015 by


By Tim Graham ~ In the annual competition between leftist media outlets for the screwiest (or most Scrooge-like) criticism of Christmas traditions, a Huffingon Post item published Thursday morning by Michael McLaughlin (HT Breitbart) was a formidable entry. After the HuffPo reporter’s headline noted that “U.S. Christmas Lights Burn More Energy Than Some Nations In A Year,” […]

U.S. Electrical Power Sector CO2 Emissions Are Down!

July 10, 2013 by


Why? Is It Because Of Wind Power? Well, no! More correctly, it seems that all those wind towers are just for show. That’s a pretty bold thing to say, and to back it up requires some in depth explanation. What is true is that those Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions are down, and in fact 7.5% […]

The Growing Threat Of Smart Meters

May 31, 2013 by


By Tom DeWeese ~ Sustainable Development is code for a policy designed to transform human society, essentially eliminating individual life decisions and replacing them with top – down, one-size-fits-all government control. In steady fashion, the agenda for this new policy, designed at the international level, is put into place piece by piece with a new […]

Kerry Lieberman American Power Act – New Power Comparison

May 31, 2010 by


The American Power Act sponsored by Senators Kerry and Lieberman bears some further looking at for some of things it proposes in respect of ‘new’ electrical power. The Peterson Institute for International Economics carried out what was termed as an ‘independent’ analysis of the proposed legislation, basically backing up the intent of the legislation. In […]

The Frightening Future For Electrical Power

April 21, 2010 by


Read this very carefully. This is really important. Sometimes, a bland short article makes something look so simple, and when the ordinary person reads it, the impression is that it actually can be achieved, because the belief is that the people making that statement must know what they are talking about. However, when the ramifications […]

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 […]

Mislead (Again) On Cap And Trade

February 4, 2010 by


Electrical Engineers everywhere must be tearing their hair out in frustration. The Carbon Cap and Trade legislation is specifically designed as a revenue raising device alone, and is not designed for the purposes of lowering Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. That’s a pretty bold thing to say, I can see, and requires some explanation, which is […]

Electricity – Paying Three Times For The Same Thing, And Some Unintended Consequences (PART 2)

February 3, 2010 by


PART TWO OF TWO PARTS In PART 1, I detailed how you, as a residential consumer, use electricity, and how you will be slugged further for using it. If you have not read PART 1, it is directly above this on the Home page, or for those of you who are visiting externally, then take […]

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 […]

The Future For Electrical Power After Waxman Markey And Kerry Boxer (Part 1)

November 2, 2009 by


PART ONE OF FOUR PARTS   This post started out as a small single post on a specific subject, but as is always the case with my posts, further research always seems to be required, and that sometimes throws up something else, which, rather than just allude to, I actually prefer to explain, and in […]

PART ONE OF TWO PARTS IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK. This chart is from the U.S. Government’s Energy Information Administration (EIA) website. Click on the image to open it in a new and larger window. In these days of being told that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal fired power plants are what is causing […]

Climate Change Policies To Throw The Third World Under The Bus (Part 1)

September 22, 2009 by


PART ONE OF TWO PARTS That’s an emotive title, but as you read this, seriously consider what is being done, and what I’m trying to impress upon you. I want you to pretend you actually really do believe this Climate Change debate, and that we need to do something of a serious nature about it, […]

The Outrageous Claims From The Renewable Power Sector (Part 1)

August 17, 2009 by


PART 1 OF 2 PARTS. This Global Warming Climate Change debate has gotten out of hand now. There has been a huge shift now to the construction of renewable power plants. The three most talked about forms are Wind Power, and the two forms of Solar power, these being Solar Photovoltaic (PV) which uses the […]

Nuclear Electrical Power Generation – Why The Fuss? (Part 2)

July 28, 2009 by


BASE LOAD IS NOT AN ADJECTIVE. You read in Part 1 of this series, right at the bottom, where I mentioned that those coal fired power plants will never be closed down. You probably thought to yourself that was a pretty big call on my part, and you may have also thought that having made […]
