Its Coal To The Rescue As Wind And Solar Fail To Keep The Lights On

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

In Germany, they call it the “Energiewende,” meaning energy transition, and it doesn’t work. Germans have been forced to come to grips with sober energy reality after binging on more than half a trillion Euros of so-called “alternative” energy, such as wind turbines and solar panels.  This dramatically increased the price of electricity and created a serious risk of blackouts. Germany actually just announced plans to reactivate coal plants to provide reserve power and lower the risk of blackouts during the coming winter and years to come.

COP 28: Climate Campaigners Freaking Out

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

Climate campaigners from Al Gore and John Kerry, down to the oddest imported student radical, are freaking out over the draft final text as the climate talks in Dubai near their conclusion.

Offshore Wind Is Neither Clean, Nor Green And Doesn’t Cut CO2 Emissions

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

America is preparing to spend trillions of taxpayer and ratepayer dollars to install thousands of offshore wind turbines – for illusory benefits. Advocates claim offshore wind energy is clean and sustainable. Wind itself certainly is, but that doesn’t mean getting energy from wind is.

President Biden and congressional Democrats constantly fret about “climate change.” Indeed, they have made it such a high priority they are taking an “whole of government approach” to addressing it.

Inflation Soars as Team Biden Locks Up America’s Energy

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Within hours of taking office, President Biden made the supposed “climate crisis” his central focus and elimination of fossil fuels his primary “solution.” To show he meant it, Biden undertook several radical measures right off the bat.

CFACT Exposes Climate Quislings at FreedomFest

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

There is a concerted effort underway by global warming campaigners to infiltrate the conservative and libertarian movements.

Electric Vehicle Subsidies and other Fantasies

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future. Everyone will want one because they’re emission-free, ecologically responsible, and more affordable every year. That’s why GM, Volvo, and other manufacturers will soon be making only EVs. Or so we’re told. Some people have high disposable incomes and do most of their driving locally. For them buying an EV […]

Corporate Leaders Cozy up to Costly Biden Climate Agenda
