3 Reasons Nuclear Power Has Returned to the Energy Debate

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

If we believed our own rhetoric about the climate crisis, support for nuclear would be much higher. If you still needed proof that nuclear energy has returned to the conversation after decades of disfavor, it came with an unexpected celebrity boost last month. Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the Canadian singer Grimes separately used their star power to advocate […]

Inflation Soars as Team Biden Locks Up America’s Energy

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Within hours of taking office, President Biden made the supposed “climate crisis” his central focus and elimination of fossil fuels his primary “solution.” To show he meant it, Biden undertook several radical measures right off the bat. First, he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline; then revoked leases and permits in Alaska and offshore areas; then […]

Nuclear Power Is Green Energy

Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Washington Post recently published an article, “Is nuclear energy green? France and Germany lead opposing camps.” where they discuss the different approaches by the two nations to nuclear power. There’s renewed attention on the issue as France re-embraces nuclear power in response to the European energy crisis. The article notes that Germany’s opposition to […]

ZEV Subsidies Fail Equity, Economics, and Environmental Tests

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Many have been saying for years that subsidies for zero-emissions (electric) vehicles [ZEV] pose unfair burdens on working Americans. Subsidizing (and mandating) an unwanted switch away from internal combustion vehicles (ICVs) while imposing diktats that have brought higher gasoline prices and record inflation also seems out of kilter with the widely championed tenet of equity.

Electric Vehicle Inanities, Insanities and Incoherence

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The only green in the new Rivian truck is if it comes in that color. For Americans in the upper percentiles of income, education, social awareness, and environmental awareness, electric vehicles (EVs) have become the latest status symbol, virtue signal, and silver bullet (green bullet?) for reducing global warming. This suggests that they might be just […]

Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

Devastating tornadoes struck America’s heartland Friday night leaving death, destruction, and heartache in their trail. When asked whether the tornadoes were due to climate change President Biden replied, “Everything is more intense when the climate is warming and obviously it has some impact here.” CFACT’s Marc Morano reports at Climate Depot that weather and climate experts were […]

Hypocrisy, Not Climate Concern, Dominated COP-26

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Global elites regularly decry the supposedly “existential” threat purported human-caused climate change poses to the environment, civilization, and even human survival. These elites propose policies intended to avert global climate disaster, almost all of them involving ending the use of fossil fuels and fundamentally changing how people live, forcing us to live in high-density urban […]

The Covid, Climate Alliance

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Maybe it is all just a big Coincidence — Covid and Climate. I have 2 chapters in my book on this matter. The book was written in March and April of 2020 so it predates the evolution of what you see (btw it is available here and it is stocking stuffer size, sort of).  Keep hawking it, as […]

Biden’s Climate Power Grab Via Trillions of Dollars in Annual Federal Procurement

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Spending by federal agencies is governed by the extensive Federal Acquisition Regulations or FAR for short. In response to a Biden executive order, the FAR Council is conducting a silly public inquiry as to how climate change should be factored into federal spending. The Federal Government spends over $6 trillion a year so this is […]
