Globalists Are Using ‘Green Energy’ to Destroy Our Way of Life

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

In 10 years before the proverbial 2035 date when many mandated transitions to “green electricity” occur to reduce or eliminate the usage of fossil fuels, most of today’s elected officials, policy advisers, and policymakers are: Mostly NOT trained in engineering. Only from wealthy countries. Unaware of the engineering reality that without the petrochemicals manufactured from […]

The Dangerous Delusion Of A Global Transition To “just electricity”

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

World leaders continue experiencing a “dangerous delusion” of a global transition to “just electricity” that they believe will eliminate the use of the crude oil that made society achieve so much in a few centuries. Crude oil is the basis of our materialistic society, as discussed in an educational and entertaining 27-minute podcast interview between […]

Will the UAW Strike Perpetuate the Death Spiral Already Mandated for the Automobile Industry?

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Increased labor costs are potentially insurmountable and uncontrollable challenges facing the automobile industry for the government mandates in wealthy countries for lower emission EVs. The UAW strike that began September 14th by 146,000 UAW union members seeking a 46 percent pay raise, a 32-hour week with 40 hours of pay, and restoration of traditional pensions will […]

China Seek Military Dominance Through Fossil Fuels

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

As the world watches, China has been aggressively building its fleet of ships and aircraft in anticipation of a potential attack on Taiwan. To support that military domination, China is also aggressively building its fossil fuel refining capabilities to power those ships and aircraft. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is aggressively campaigning to rid America of fossil […]

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) in America = Extreme Shortages Guaranteed

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Energy growth, electricity AND the products made from oil derivatives—manufactured from crude oil and the fuels to power ships, planes, militaries, and space programs—are directly linked to prosperity and well-being across the globe. Today, most of the energy the world consumes is from hydrocarbons, with crude oil being the dominant source of transportation fuels. Today, […]

Energy Shortages and Inflation The New Norm as Refinery Closures Outpace Construction

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Editors’ Note: Progressives have played a coy game. As they over-regulate the energy business, denigrate the industry, have their allies in the environmental organization tie the industry up with lawsuits, and deny capital for expansion with their friends in the ESG movement; they grin like the proverbial Cheshire cat when energy costs soar far faster […]

Is It Ethical to Purchase a Lithium Battery Powered EV?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

With numerous state governors have issued executive orders to phase out the purchasing of gasoline-driven cars within the next decade or so, and the automobile manufacturers’ efforts to phase into only manufacturing EVs here’s some food for thought about the lack of transparency about “Clean Energy Exploitations”. The top image is an oil well, where […]

Efforts to cease the use of crude oil could be the greatest threat to civilization’s eight billion people.   The Stockholm+50 in Stockholm, Sweden, will commemorate the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment and celebrate 50 years of failed global environmental action. The meetings on June 2nd and 3rd will follow months of consultations and […]

Are the Environmental Impacts and Human Atrocities Worth an EV Battery?

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

EV buyers should be aware that they may be contributing to the pursuit of “blood minerals” to achieve their efforts to go green.   The worldwide movement toward the electrification of everything, from more electric vehicles (EVs) to more intermittent electricity by wind turbines and solar panels, the political actions are supportive of jumping onto […]

Without Fossil Fuel Infrastructure We’re Supposed To Have An ENERGY CRISIS!

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Over the last decade, climate activists have successfully pressured governments, banks, and corporations to divest from crude oil and natural gas companies. The energy infrastructures are just like the “civil” infrastructures the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Infrastructure Report Cards constantly addresses, and the resultant poor “grades” given to the infrastructures of our economy. […]

Fossil Fuels Form The Basis Of Our Medical And Food Supply Chains

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Under Biden’s plan to rid America of fossil fuels, such a plan would eliminate the medical industry that is totally reliant on the products made from petroleum derivatives, and eliminate oil-based fertilizers to grow the crops that feed the 8 billion on planet earth. Surprisingly, Biden must be oblivious to the consequences of his plan […]

Eliminating Crude Oil Is Like Jumping Out Of A Plane Without A Chute

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The world and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are proposing banishment of fossil fuels and are focused on reducing emissions from fossil fuels at any costs, but a safety net of having a viable replacement should be in place before we jump off that cliff. Banning oil imports, fracking, and ceasing oil production […]

What Is Good For The Climate Geese Is NOT Good For The Ganders

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The billionaires prolificating “green” for the world, such as Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, and others are the same individuals amassing huge carbon footprints for their numerous private jets, houses, boats, and cars. For Bloomberg alone, a Business Insider analysis found that Bloomberg’s emissions-heavy private jets took more […]

EV’s Not Family Workhorses, but Short-range Second Cars

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

With half of the EV’s in the entire country being located in California, the recent 2021 California study may be a downer for the EV excitement as it shows that EV’s are driven half as much as internal combustion engine vehicles. The study illustrates that EV’s are generally second vehicles and not the primary workhorse vehicle […]

Cities, Countries, and Economies Were Built With Derivatives From Oil, Not By Electricity

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Before world leaders move too fast to consummate their climate policies, they need to be cognizant of two “aha” moments: 1) wind and solar can only generate intermittent electricity, and 2) electricity cannot manufacture the oil derivatives that are the basis of the thousands of products that have built the world’s cities, countries, and economies […]

America’s light usage reveals insanity of relying on weather-dependent wind & solar

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

The U.S.A. Light Usage Map demonstrates that most of America’s population is East of the Mississippi which represents areas most susceptible to erratic weather patterns, such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and ungodly amounts of rain and snow and frigid temperatures extremes, which perpetuate the unreliability of any intermittent electricity attainable from wind and solar. The northern hemisphere turns […]

Those millions of new ‘green’ jobs are going to China and India

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

When U.S. “Special Envoy” for Climate John Kerry recently urged workers upset by the Biden administration’s decision to scuttle the Keystone XL pipeline to “learn to make solar panels”, he was oblivious to the fact that China and India dominate the solar panel manufacturing market. President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Recovery Plan is to build a modern, […]
