A renewable fantasy

Wind TurbineThis July 6th WSJ editorial on the fantasy of relying on renewable energy is a must read. Here’s a few good quotes from the article to get you started.

Recently Bill Gates explained in an interview with the Financial Times why current renewables are dead-end technologies. They are unreliable. Battery storage is inadequate. Wind and solar output depends on the weather. The cost of decarbonization using today’s technology is “beyond astronomical,” Mr. Gates concluded. …

Sierra Club proud they’re putting miners out of work

I was recently interviewed by CNS News and asked for comment on the joint Sierra Club, Bloomberg media event (held on April 8th). In this event former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg and senior Sierra Club staffers, like CEO Michael Brune, exulted in their ability to pour tens of millions of dollars into misleading pressure campaigns, aimed at putting coal industry workers into unemployment lines. The gist of their recently expanded campaign is to spend Mr. Bloomberg’s $80 million, along with tens of millions of matching donations, “to shutter 50 percent of (coal) plants by 2017.”

Patrick Moore – we need more CO2

Patrick MoorePatrick Moore, co-founder and former leader of Greenpeace has a dramatically different take on atmospheric CO2 and its impacts on the environment.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonised Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionised civilisation. …

The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels

Can’t speak highly enough about this book and Alex Epstein’s other work. There is a solid moral case to be made for the use of fossil fuels and Alex’s book does a good job outlining that case.

Buy the book. Read the book. Tell others about the book AND talk to people about the value of fossil fuels to humanity.

The agency’s real agenda: empire, control and inverted justice for poor and minority families

By Paul Driessen, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

sitemgr_photo_1520When it comes to energy, climate change, justice and transparency, the Obama administration and its Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) want it every possible way. Their only consistency is their double standards and their determination to slash hydrocarbon use, ensure that electricity prices “necessarily skyrocket,” expand federal government command and control and “fundamentally transform” America.

It's time to stop the climate scare storiesIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sensibly refuses to attend yet another climate summit — this one called by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in New York for Sept. 23, under the auspices of the United Nations, which profits handsomely from the much-exaggerated climate scare.

EPA whistleblower

Former Sierra Club activist, Dr. Alan Carlin’s story of his whistleblowing experience at the EPA is an interesting read. In this article, Dr. Carlin describes why he was forced to blow the whistle on EPA during the run up to the CO2 endangerment finding, how he was “muzzled” for bringing forth negative comments, and how he sees the EPA now operating outside of their legal mandate.
