The UN's Climate Change Agenda is So Extreme Its Own Analysts Can't Defend It

09/18/2019  Robert P. Murphy

Advocates of aggressive government intervention in the name of fighting climate change have posed as the defenders of “consensus science,” labeling any who dissent from their agenda as “deniers” with all of the baggage that term entails. And yet, as I’ve been pointing out for years, the peer-reviewed economics literature does not support the popular United Nations’ policy goals, of limiting global warming to either 2.0°C or the even more stringent ceiling…

Deputy Secretary of Energy: ‘Impossible’ to Reduce ‘Carbon Emissions’ Without ‘Nuclear Energy’

We’re developing technologies in our national laboratories that will allow some of these smaller modular advanced reactors to come online. … Their fuels are … what we refer to as ‘walk-away safe.’ The days of a meltdown, if you will … we can move away from that with some of the newer technologies, and that’s an exciting feature for nuclear…

U.S. Carbon Emissions at Lowest Level Since 1992

“The environmental protection agency reports that carbon emissions from energy use from the U.S. are the lowest since 1992,” Jerome Hudson said.

“Hollywood elites and establishment media are so busy telling us the America must lead and do more on climate change that the don’t realize that America has reduced its carbon emissions for nearly decades.” Hudson said. “Democrats push a $16 trillion Green New Deal plan that will heavily tax the middle class. Democrats can’t explain their…

Do not let these Green Nazi's hide their atrocities - Please circulate

This is an image of an eagle found still alive with a wing cut off from a wind turbine blade. It was sent to me by Ulla Falkdalen.

Many of these eagles live for days before dying. The eagle in the second image was located nearly a month after its outer wing tip was found under a turbine.

I have all the documentation on this.

The world needs to see things like this and not let the profit driven green Nazi's hide their…

Warren: We Won’t Build Nuclear Plants, and We’ll Replace Nuclear with Renewables

Warren said, “It’s not carbon-based, but the problem is, it’s got a lot of risks associated with it, particularly the risks associated with the spent fuel rods that nobody can figure out how we’re going to store these things for the next bazillion years. So, here’s how I see it, in my administration, we’re not going to build any new nuclear…

Was this Whooping Crane mortally wounded by a wind turbine?.... I say Yes

If true, would the Interior Department ever tell you?  Based upon the thousands of eagles killed by turbines that we have never been told about......I say never.

Here are a few snippets from the troubling court testimony given by a top medical examiner for USFWS. This is testimony given about a Whooping crane that was found dead shortly after reaching the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in Texas. This crane had migrated 2500 miles and along the way, sustained a very…

Big Wind’s big headwinds / Texas Turbine Fire

Big Wind’s big headwinds

By Robert Bryce

On Monday, the Seattle City Council passed a resolution that adds the city to the list of municipalities that have committed to a local version of the Green New Deal. More than 100 cities have now declared their intent to obtain all of their electricity from renewables or “clean” energy sources. Furthermore, the Sierra Club claims that one in four Americans now live in communities that are “committed to a…

VERMONT IS HARVESTING WOOD FAR IN EXCESS OF NET ADDED ABOVEGROUND LIVE BIOMASS

Vermont has the 4th highest percentage of forest coverage, after Maine, New Hampshire and Virginia. According to the USFS, based on 2015 satellite data, Vermont had about 4,511,000 acres of forest, of which 4,288,000 acres were classified as timberland. However, only about 2,200,000 acres of the timberland acres were “accessible, ecologically appropriate, and estimated as managed for logging”.

 

In 2017, about 1,846,743 acres of the total…

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
