Bill Gates Slams Unreliable Wind & Solar: ‘Let’s Quit Jerking Around With Renewables & Batteries’

Thought Piece  Unsurprisingly, the following interview got no media coverage. By the way, Bill Gates has little or no skin in the renewables and battery sector, plus he isn’t singing from the Green Tabernacle Choir hymnal. Historically, the media has acted like a lynch mob, from time to time, and this one of those times.” Anonymous [...]

Thought Piece   For anyone who wants to put the economics back into economic development, this 2019 TIPRO Report is very timely. I especially like the Methodology Section. Too many reports and reporters provide scant information on their methodology or derivation of their “facts.” The one-eyed climate left is good at inciting fervor for concepts that [...]

Gas Shortages Give New York an Early Taste of the Green New Deal

Thought Piece Here is a great Op-Ed piece by friend Robert Bryce. In complete disbelief, Robert writes about the mostly officious energy policy of New York. How can urban politicians set a course for destruction, while rural citizens must stand by and let it all happen? Robert details all of the flaws of extreme environmental thinking. [...]

“Why We Won’t Quit the Climate Fight” (the growing futility, despair of climate alarmists)

Thought Piece Here is a great piece by one of my very favorite economic development and energy writers, Rob Bradley. He combines environmental sanity, intellectualism, and clarity. In this piece, Rob develops a flower child point and mature counterpoint narrative in the climate debate. "No matter how cynical you get, it is impossible to keep up." [...]

The Obvious Biomass Emissions Error

Thought Piece Thanks to Steve Goreham, here is a discussion about one of the many flaws in the Emission Reduction Scheme in European Union (ETS-EU). Wood chips are being treated like a renewable resource. The double standards, wood chips vs. energy efficiency, of the ETS is obvious. ONE COULD SAY THIS FLAW IS LIKELY EVIDENCE OF [...]

‘Green energy blues’ in a town that sought to do something about climate change

Thought Piece I just have turned off The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t it be Nice,” and I brought myself back to renewable reality. Anyway, perhaps the largest uncertainty about renewable energy is the two kinds of technology risk. Like with all new technologies, renewables have a productive life of uncertain length. This is especially problematic when renewables [...]

Infrastructure Lost: Why America Cannot Afford to “Keep It In the Ground”

Thought Piece First and foremost, the “Keep It In The Ground” has only one “accomplishment,” which is keeping over $91 billion of energy infrastructure from being built or replaced (with both new and upgraded technology). A visible example of this do-nothing approach can be found north of Boston, with the explosion of old gas pipelines. My [...]

Climate hysterics skyrocket

Thought Piece First, I am a "lukewarmer," someone who believes deniers and alarmists are both wrong.That said, the tangible pollution in Asia and many poverty-strickened population areas of the world needs to be addressed by the international community. Along with advancing global economic development, there is a pressing need to eliminate poverty induced misuse of energy [...]

What the Green New Deal will do to our family

Thought Piece Here is a new piece by ally Greg Wrightstone, entitled “What the Green New Deal will do to our family,” that has just appeared in the American Thinker. Beneath the Jonathon Swift-like satire, Greg has looked at the future of the effects of “Green New Deal;” and, to quote Leonard Cohen, “I have seen [...]

PG&E Sparked at Least 1,500 California Fires. Now the Utility Faces Collapse.

Thought Piece Budget Surpluses and Fire in California: Governor Jerry Brown continues to declare that all of this year’s forest fires (including “Camp Fire,” “Woolsey Fire ,” “Hill Fire,” and “Rocky Peak Fire”) have been caused by climate change. In fact, the WSJ points out the State Of California has MISSPENT 10 times more on electric [...]
