Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Moving rapidly to transition the United States away from fossil fuels in the name of combatting climate change, the Biden administration is employing a mix of executive authority and legislative action to force the transformation. While much attention is focused on which climate-related provisions ultimately make it into the administration’s massive infrastructure bill, a little-noticed White […]

We Should Take Them At Their Words

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I suppose I should be grateful for people like John Kerry and Gina McCarthy because their very words back up the premise of my book, The Weaponization of Weather in the Phony Climate War. For their words reveal this is not about climate, but about using climate as a means to an end, the end […]

The Pandemic Changes They Are Denying

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

While preparing for my vacation I went to the shelves where the unread books are kept. I dug through the books to pick out the ones that would be best suited for the trip. I came across the book Pale Rider by Laura Spinney which is about the Spanish Flu of 1918. I thought that […]

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 […]

China’s Strange Endorsement of “Net Zero”

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

You have to hand it to Xi Jinping. The Chinese “president for life” last September schmoozed the royalty of the United Nations with his unexpected pledge that his country aims “to have CO2 emissions peak before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality (Net Zero) before 2060.” Xi then urged other nations “to pursue innovative, coordinated, green and open development […]

Maglev Dream Encounters Green Nightmare

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

For environmentalists tossing and turning at night in despair over the fate of their climate-ravaged planet, the prospect of a sleek, high-tech, clean-energy train that could zip along the Northeast Corridor at breathtaking speeds should be a dream come true. Instead, developers of a futuristic maglev (magnetic levitation) train that will someday take passengers from […]

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 […]

Michael Crichton: Is environmentalism a religion?

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

As more and more in society have drifted away from a belief in God the void needs to be filled for most human beings. The environment, Crichton said, has filled the void for many. Conventional Judeo-Christian religion began with a perfect world called Eden. Today’s environmentalist sees sustainability as the salvation in the church of […]

We should return to Michael Crichton’s way of thinking — Part 1

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.  Michael Crichton Michael Crichton (1942-2008) wrote 26 novels, many of which […]
