This article describes the efficiency of electric vehicles, EVs, and their charging loss, when charging at home and on-the-road, and the economics, when compared with efficient gasoline vehicles.
Any economic analysis must include the amortizing of the difference in capital cost of EVs and equivalent gasoline vehicles.
Any CO2 reduction analysis must be the difference of the CO2 emissions of an EV and an equivalent gasoline vehicle, on a lifetime, A-to-Z…Continue
Finally, the claim by the legacy US and NE Media, "no significant fraud occurred that would overturn the Election" has been PROVEN FALSE in Pennsylvania and Arizona.
Analysis of election and population data of swing states, such as Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, etc., is ongoing.
Results will be added to this article, as they become available.
The issue is not whether Biden obtained more votes than Trump, such as New York and…Continue
Environmental sciences professor, Jacobsen, at Stanford University, CA, claimed in 2015, almost all US energy requirements, for all uses, could be supplied by wind, solar and hydro. He excluded energy from nuclear and from bio sources, mainly because of excessive cropland area requirements, and because forests are a major absorber and storer of CO2.
NOTE: Coal, oil, gas, etc., are used as feedstocks to make millions of products that fill…Continue
The US, a Beacon of Freedom
The US presents itself as a defender of human and civil rights, and Freedom and Democracy
The US organizes Color Revolutions to oust corrupt governments flouting the Rights of the People.
Almost always, those governments are allied with Russia, the Evil Empire, run by Evil Dictator Putin.
It would seem reasonable, the US would have in place nationwide standards to conduct Elections, to ensure Free and…Continue
Info status as of December 30, 2020
As additional news comes in during October through February, this write-up will be revised and augmented.
I can assure you, I do not like this disappointing news about Biden.
I always thought he was one of the good guys, until I did some googling
So much dirt exists, because he ran twice for President, bowed out twice, because Hillary was digging up too much dirt,…Continue
This article describes a multi-month project, started about August 2020, to fabricate up to 280,000 mail-in ballots near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, for use during the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania, a swing state.
This article is a work in progress, because of on-going developments. It has 6 parts, plus Appendix.
PART 1, PREPARING THE MAIL-IN BALLOTS NEAR BETHPAGE, LONG ISLAND,…Continue
Solar systems have their highest electricity production at midday.
The surge of production from near-zero to maximum causes disturbances on the grid, aka DUCK-curves.
Southern California and Southern Germany, with high MW of installed solar, have major DUCK-curves on sunny days.
At present, mostly gas-fired, combined-cycle gas-turbine (CCGT) power plants are used to counteract the DUCK-curve surges.
In California, the shutdowns of 15 of 19 coastal, CCGT…Continue

Most of this growth is expected to come from countries that are not in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and…Continue
As more details emerge about Hunter Biden’s emails and Biden Family connections to China, Russia, Ukraine and other countries that would provide most of the metals and minerals America would need under any Green New Deal, we should contemplate how much some families, companies and countries would be enriched by the GND – while others would lose their jobs, see their energy prices skyrocket, and watch their favorite scenic vistas and wildlife habitats get blanketed by wind turbines, solar…Continue
Vermont has a Comprehensive Energy Plan, CEP. The capital cost for implementing the CEP would be in excess of $1.0 billion/y for at least 33 years, per Energy Action Network annual report for 2015, not counting financing and replacements of short-life systems, such as EVs, heat pumps, battery storage systems, etc. See URLs.
The Vermont House overrode Governor Scott's veto of GWSA, and sent it to the Vermont Senate for an override vote
GSWA converts the aspirational goals of the CEP, into mandated goals, with penalties, taxes, fees and surcharges.
GWSA had been called “must pass this Session”.
Capital Costs to Implement the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan
In 2015, Energy Action Network, EAN, an umbrella…Continue

VAGARIES OF SOLAR
In summer, expensive, weather and season-dependent, highly subsidized, variable, intermittent solar dozes off in late afternoon/early evening, during peak electricity demands, sleeps all night, and does not wake up until about mid-morning the next day, becomes very active around midday creating DUCK curves, especially on sunny days, then dozes off again in late afternoon/early evening, during peak electricity…Continue

Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, VEIC, is involved in “energy solutions for an evolving world”. It helps various, mostly government entities, meet economic and environmental goals with sustainable solutions “designed for impact”. Major areas of interest are energy efficiency, building electrification, transportation electrification, and a clean and flexible grid.
SOLAR IN VERMONT
VEIC states: Vermont is on its way to becoming an advanced…Continue

Based on the sun index level, Vermont is ranked 44th regarding solar power potential, according to a sun index developed for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) using data provided by NREL's Renewable Resource Data Center.
Connecticut and Rhode Island rank 41st and 38th. See table 2 of URL
The sun index is defined as an…Continue

BURNING WOOD IS NOT RENEWABLE BY A LONG SHOT
Pro-logging interests use “Burning Wood is Renewable” as a slogan, a mantra, to assure others all is benign, because it helps save the world, fight global warming, are part of the “solution”, and thus deserves to get money via the Global Warming…Continue

Depending on how much the sun is shining and the wind is blowing, variable/intermittent wind and solar often supply too much or too little electricity. The solution of the 100%-in-state proponents is to store unused electricity in batteries (or some other medium) and then dispatch from storage as needed, 24/7/365, to maintain ISO-NE-specified grid conditions.
The 100%-in-state proponents propose a $1.2 billion down-payment…Continue
The purpose of this article is to compare the Hydro Quebec electricity prices of exports to New York and New England and the costs of wind and solar, and the prices paid to owners of New England wind and solar systems. The CO2 of wind, solar and hydro are also compared.
This article shows, it is abundantly clear electricity from Hydro-Quebec is far less costly than from New England wind and solar, plus it requires no subsidies and cost shifting.
