Is Big Wind Too Big For Its Britches?

May 10, 2021 by


By Duggan Flanakin ~ The world-wide wind industry, says the Global Wind Energy Council, will create 3.3 million new “good-paying union jobs” by 2025, if it actually installs the planned 470 gigawatts of combined onshore and offshore wind capacity. Just in 2020, says the GWEC, 93 GW of new wind capacity was installed – doubling 2019 […]

Green Energy Mandates Could Double Your Electric Bills

October 31, 2018 by


By Stephen Moore and Andy Vanderplas ~ Business and homeowner utility costs could double in many states if environmental groups succeed in enacting draconian solar and wind power mandates in states across the country. Yet these mandates will have almost no impact in cleaning the air or reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In Arizona and Nevada, […]

Obama Jokes About Voting Only Once + More – Daily Digest

October 29, 2014 by


The Patriot Post ~ THE FOUNDATION “[In a democracy] a common passion or interest will, in almost every case , be felt by a majority of the whole; a communication and concert results from the form of government itself; and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual.” […]

The New York Wind Farm Scam

Phony crony capitalism means ugly wind farms that kill birds and and whole communities! By Mary Kay Barton  ~ Congress’s last minute extension of the PTC or Production Tax Credit (aka: “Pork To Cronies”) within the December 31, 2012, fiscal cliff deal was good news for Big Wind corporate welfare profiteers, like Michael Polsky’s Invenergy. It […]

Installing Windmills Doesn’t Make the Wind Blow

October 31, 2012 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ A tweet from the Department of Energy (DOE) gives a link to a DOE webpage highlighting a graph from, and giving a link to, a study by the American Wind Energy Association. Skipping the question of how appropriate it is for the DOE to flack for an advocacy organization, we […]

Recent Energy and Environmental News – 9/18/11

September 20, 2011 by


By John Droz, Jr. Some recent energy articles of interest — There seems to be a spat of green jobs related stories recently. Almost all of them dispel the green jobs propaganda. Here are some of the most pertinent: “The Myth of Green Jobs” by Dr. Gordon Hughes, a Professor of Economics, says “Claims by […]

What A Clean Energy Future Looks Like – An Absolute Nightmare

March 9, 2011 by


I can show you what a clean energy future will look like, and it’s not very pretty. I’m not going to use guesswork or bogus figures, but actual data from actual existing renewable power plants, in this case Wind Power. I’m not going to do it for a small area, or for one whole electrical […]

Opposing Wind Energy

June 8, 2010 by


Since Wind Power Doesn't Work, what is the best way to get this point accross to our Lawmakers and other Government Officials? (1) Call for a Moratorium on All New Construction? or (2) Pursue a More “Pragmatic” Political Course of Highlighting Adverse Impacts (but NOT Questioning the Fundamental Viability of the Technology)

Wind and Solar Power, a ‘Clean’ Money Maker, But Proven Unreliable!

April 29, 2010 by


In response to TonyfromOz article:  Renewable Power, But Not For When It’s Needed Most (Part 1) By Pete Ridley Thanks for the excellent article Tony. I recall reading somewhere about how Germany and Denmark, who both committed to significant investment in wind power, found that it was too unreliable to provide base load. I understand that […]

Renewable Power, But Not For When It’s Needed Most (Part 2)

April 26, 2010 by


PART TWO OF TWO PARTS THE ABJECT FAILURE OF RENEWABLE POWER, WHEN IT WAS NEEDED THE MOST January of 2010 was the middle month of what has been one of the coldest Winters on record. Electrical power consumption spiked higher for December by almost 17%, probably expected for the start of Winter, but in January, […]

The Lighter Side Of Cap And Trade

July 3, 2009 by


The citizens of the United States are in danger of being saddled with the biggest tax increase in human history. That will be the result if the “Cap and Trade” bill recently passed by the House and now on it’s way to the Senate becomes law. The costs associated with this boondoggle will effect each […]

Green Greed

March 23, 2009 by


Andrew Bolt. TonyfromOz prefaces ….. It is proven fact that these supposedly renewable energy plants, both wind and solar, are enormously expensive, and provide only marginal amounts of power at variable times only. If they have been proven to be so inefficient, surely it can only make you wonder why people are rushing to get […]

Misconceptions About Coal Fired Power Generation

February 20, 2009 by


I have specifically left this post separate from the others, because it needs a full post of its own. We have been led to believe that coal fired power plants are what amounts to the main cause in what will amount to global catastrophe. The only real catastrophe that will result will be when ill […]

Electrical Power Misconceptions (Part 2)

February 18, 2009 by


PART 2 OF 3 PARTS In yesterday’s post, I started to try and explain some of the misconceptions about the way we look at electrical power, and the way environmentalists are misinterpreting it, not out of malice, because they probably think they have good intentions, but because they have no concept or understanding of what […]

The Green (Nuclear) Option

February 6, 2009 by


LESSON LEARNED BUT SWIFTLY FORGOTTEN Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Now, why oh why are Countries turning to Nuclear generated electrical power when those two renewable forms of generating power, Solar and Wind are being heavily touted as the way of the future. Surely it couldn’t be an economic decision now, could it? Maybe those […]

February 2, 2009 by


BLOWING COLD ON WIND Andrew Bolt A growing revolt in France against the hideous wind farms now despoiling the countryside: The opposition is coming from villages in the northern Picardy region and from the east and the west, where wind farms have been growing fastest. A dozen local mayors led a demonstration of about 800 […]

Why IS The Threat Of CO2 Emissions Dangerous? (It’s Not What You Think) Part 2

February 1, 2009 by


PART 2 OF 2 PARTS. In the previous post, I mentioned that most of the coal fired power plants in the U.S. are reaching the time when their effective life span is almost finished. Regulation of them brought about by what amounts really to a scare campaign, sees any new plans for newer and more […]

Some Facts About Renewable Electrical Power Generation (Part 2)

January 29, 2009 by


PART 2 OF 2 PARTS In yesterday’s post, I showed how statistics can be artfully used to show different things, how the same set of figures can be used in different ways to explain different things. What this effectively showed is that something can have spin added to it to make it look like there […]

Some Facts About Renewable Electrical Power Generation (Part 1)

January 28, 2009 by


PART ONE OF TWO PARTS These two posts will be along the lines  of ‘told you so’, only I’m getting in early. What I wanted to do was to actually create a ‘baseline’, and what I mean by that is that sometimes, the things that politicians say seem to vanish over time. You sort of […]

Misguided Stimuli

PRESIDENT ELECT OBAMA TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULBS The President Elect has delivered his plan for an economic stimulus in an effort to dig the U.S. out of this Worldwide economic downturn. His plan is estimated to cost around $775 Billion, but that is most probably just the baseline number. Here is the full text […]

More Climate Change Lunacy (Only In California)

January 6, 2009 by


This story is from the Los Angeles Times. The general intent of the story is that those Plasma televisions are contributing to Global Warming Climate Change, because they are large users of electrical power. It’s drawing a long bow at best, and to show you just why, I’ve included this pie chart of household electricity […]

Energy Driving In The Wrong Direction

December 17, 2008 by


THE PRESIDENT ELECT AND THE DEATH OF AMERICA Alan Caruba Let’s understand something fundamental to everyone’s life in America and the entire economy. We are not “addicted” to oil. Like all developed, modern nations we use oil as a valuable resource for transportation, as the basis of plastics, and for a thousand uses from asphalt […]
