Joe Biden is proposing, if elected in November, to spend upwards of $2 trillion to remake America’s energy infrastructure so it better addresses “environmental and climate justice.”
On Tuesday, the former vice president released his long-awaited climate change plan. Biden’s proposal, heavily influenced by the…Continue

First there was Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans, then came Bjorn Lomborg’s False Alarm, and now Michael Schellenberger’s Apocalypse Never. All three authors sound the common theme that the hyper-green environmental activists who have captured, politicized, and monetized the concern for the environment have, as Lomborg explains, created a false climate alarm which has “costs us trillions, hurts the poor, and fails to fix the planet.” To varying degrees, all three…Continue

There they go with the "aging transmission lines" again. Why do they never figure the cost of new transmission lines (and a lot of other things) into the costs typically cited?

The recent film “Planet of the Humans” documents numerous very real shortcomings with solar power as a solution for environmental degradation. Controversial producer Michael Moore backed the film, which has led to a huge fracas over its claims.
It is wise to consider the pollution (“externalized environmental costs”) generated in the production of consumer…Continue

What ignited this coalition and—by attacking most energy sources and forms of locomotion fueled by petroleum products—turned it into a battering ram against almost all primary and secondary industry, was the spontaneous and overwhelming adherence of the international Left.
The Left improvised ingeniously after the collapse of international Communism, the end of the Cold War, the disintegration of the Soviet Union, and conversion of the People’s Republic of China to the virtues of…Continue

This 11 minute video says more about American "elites" ' sellout to China than a year of mainstream media reporting. Why do the mainstream media ignore so many things? Why does academia push ideas which undermine America? Why does Hollywood push ideas which undermine America? Why have once conservative corporations become "Woke" and turned into "social justice warriors"? Why do environmental groups push Chinese made solar panels and wind turbines while China is…Continue

Politicians on state public utility commissions and in state legislatures don’t have the knowledge or the courage to represent the interests of the people, rather than the interests of the manufacturers of wind and solar stations and the interests of the environmental organizations that are profiting from an artificial fear of traditional energy.

Seattleites want to live more like Manhattanites.
Or at least, that was the gamble made by developers of The Emerald, a 40-story luxury condominium near Pike Place Market, when they decided to include fewer parking stalls than any comparable new residential tower in the city.
But it looks like even Teslas on demand and…Continue

‘Green Energy’: Wind Turbines Are ‘Piling Up In Landfills,’ Can’t Be Recycled
Tens of thousands of aging blades are coming down from steel towers around the world and most have nowhere to go but landfills. In the U.S. alone, about 8,000 will be removed in each of the next four years. Europe, which has been dealing with the problem longer, has about 3,800 coming down annually through at least 2022, according to BloombergNEF. It’s going to get worse: Most were built more than a…Continue
Note that the legislation being proposed, banning wind turbines within 1,500 feet of either a residential area or commercial area, is effectively an outright ban in NYC. Yet New York City is a strong proponent of building colossal wind factories right within rural communities. Note that the address of the collapsed wind turbine is…

Looks to me like this is just another piece of propaganda for the wind and solar developers to ram their expensive products down Mainers' throats, particularly when real clean energy sources such as big hydro and nuclear are rejected out of hand by groups like NRCM.

Young people without insider connections must leave Maine to find decent work while the lunatics running the asylum steadily waste tax dollars to further destroy competitiveness.
Just like cars, e-buses are more expensive than their internal-combustion peers – $300,000 or so compared with less than $150,000. Range is an issue, too. Today’s batteries…Continue
Stewardship of our natural world is certainly a good thing. However, a huge divide exists between urban centers divorced from the natural world, and a rural population who daily live in it. The urban population uses virtue signaling through environmental mandates that sound good, but don’t actually work. Meanwhile, rural folks have to live with the visual impacts of mountain top wind turbines that kill birds and bats by the thousands, forests torn by transmission lines, and the economic…Continue

If successful, the global warming hustle will reclaim power from the people and return it to the kings and queens, lords and ladies who mean to rule over what's left of the world they destroy. It will be the greatest con ever executed. The charade is so vast and so vile that if it comes crashing down, not a single Western government will survive. These are the stakes they created to swap freedom with…Continue
