Kleptomaniacs in Washington, DC shed no tears for fired oil and gas workers just as they shed no tears for paradise defiled by 600' wind fraud monstrosities.
Crabtree posted about it on his Facebook page: “I got laid off for political reasons and stupidity and the future doesn’t look so bright. I’ve got a sickening feeling in my stomach … I went to my…Continue

John Kerry, the Biden Admin’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, has a message to oil and gas workers: make solar panels.
Joe Biden killed tens of thousands of jobs his first day in office when he canceled contracts with the Keystone XL pipeline and waged a war on the energy business.

I am working on a couple of proposals that I need technical help with.
First I am working on a complete process for recovering the chemicals in solar panels at end-of-life. I have drafted legislation for this to be effective (mandatory) and would welcome scrutiny.
The other is a new mode of transportation (maglev) for which I need to estimate the savings in CO2 and the potential to benefit from TCI or whatever exchange is finally adopted.

It is really not important that this is a political issue and whether you support Biden or Trump . . . . It is an issue of real science vs. pseudo-science developed by international economists to control the economic imbalance of the world. It is a New World Order plan to transfer wealth, not improve the climate or save the world from "Climate Change" which is an undefinable quantity. They knew this when it was developed and have continued to deny their own facts with…Continue

Note that one of the photos chosen for their slick report features the Vinalhaven turbines which tortured those in nearby homes, forcing at least one couple to abandon living there. Insensitive? Incompetent? In your face?

Janet Mills proposed a series of actions Monday to advance a floating wind research project planned for far offshore in federal waters, while protecting the near-shore waters valued for lobstering and coastal tourism.

“The PTC is the single most expensive energy subsidy in the federal tax code and is estimated to cost taxpayers about $40 billion from 2018 to 2027.” (IER, January 5, 2021)
“Special government favor to business–crony capitalism–can turn losers into winners. And the loser lobby can claim progress and even inevitability as if they really won. This is the postmodernism of energy policy today in regard to the two…Continue

The significance of Madison County’s rejection of Big Wind goes beyond Buffet, Berkshire Hathaway, and Iowa. Since 2015, by my count, 291 government entities from California to Maine have rejected or restricted wind-energy projects.
It’s nearly impossible to build wind projects in California. Between 2013 and 2019, the state …Continue
