We’re still battling the coronavirus tyrants. Now come the climate authoritarians.
More than 200 climate scientists — and that’s “scientists” with an eyeball roll — have gathered to put the final touches on an agreement that will take the lessons learning from the coronavirus, meaning the idea that fear sells and sells well, and apply them to the field of environmental regulation.
The headlines have already started the buzz.…Continue

“Bezos, please stay up there. Do the world a favor” tweeted Tulsi Gabbard in response to the launch of Blue Origin’s rocket, carrying the Amazon founder and other passengers into space earlier today.
The billionaire space race is accelerating, with Bezos’ trip to space coming in the same month as Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson’s. Both Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin are competing with SpaceX — another rocket company run by another billionaire, Elon Musk.

New England states are aiming to reduce CO2 emissions to “fight global warming”. The federal government and each state provide various subsidies to investors to build energy systems that have minimal or no combustion CO2, such as wind, solar, nuclear, hydro, biomass (i.e., wood chip burning), farm methane, etc. Those subsidies enable investors to sell their electricity at lower prices to utilities, that are under statutory obligation to buy the electricity.

Unfortunately, when a wind turbine catches fire hundreds of feet above the ground, fire personnel often cannot reach the fire and simply wait for the fire to burn out. That might be adequate on the Great Plains, but what happens in remote and bone dry Maine forests?
Maine’s prolonged drought, now more than 16 months long and impacting the whole state, has exacerbated the threat of wildfires by creating an earlier…Continue

J.D. Vance, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Ohio and author of Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, noted Friday how the Biden administration’s “war on American energy” facilitates the loss of manufacturing jobs to China.
Democrat proposals to further subsidize electric vehicle technology amount to a subsidy for China given the one-party state’s dominance of the production of electric-vehicle batteries, Vance noted on SiriusXM’s Breitbart…Continue
