Congress Inches Closer To Unshackling American Nuclear Energy

By The Daily Caller The Senate sent one of the most significant pro-nuclear energy bills in recent history to President Joe Biden’s desk this week, but the bill alone is unlikely to spur a nuclear renaissance in the U.S. The ADVANCE Act passed the Senate on Tuesday by a strong 88-2 bipartisan vote to the applause of pro-nuclear organizations […]

New EPA Rule Is a Death Sentence for American Energy

By The Daily Signal The Environmental Protection Agency plays judge, jury, and executioner—and its newest-issued rule is a death sentence to American energy and energy-producing states. Meanwhile, states like Pennsylvania, which will be disproportionately harmed by the rule because of our abundant natural gas production, hold the key to America’s increasing energy needs, generating immense economic development […]

Who is Winning the Climate Change War?

By John Droz, Jr. Also: proof that the Climate and COVID alarmists used the same tactics… Believe it or not, there is actually disagreement with a few people as to who is winning the Climate Change war: Alarmists or Realists? An accurate response to that question will indicate the best strategy for the Realists (mostly Conservatives) to take […]

Private Property Rights: A common issue when wind or solar projects are being proposed

By John Droz, Jr. At public hearings about industrial wind and solar projects, the issue of private property rights frequently comes up. Almost always it is a claim that a potential leaseholder has the right to lease his property to a wind or solar developer. Like many aspects of these contentious matters, this is a decoy: intentionally inserted by […]

Ted Cruz is introducing a Senate bill that would repeal a “natural gas tax” proposal enabled by the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), President Joe Biden’s signature climate bill.

Wind Turbines = Enormous ‘Unintended’ Consequences

Biden Regime’s EPA sent $50,000,000 to Climate Justice Alliance, which glorifies Oct. 7th massacre

By Jihad Watch The speaker is Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV). “What does the “Palestinian” jihad have to do with the alleged climate crisis? Nothing whatsoever, except that both are part of the left’s agenda and both, if successful, will result in the advance of internationalist authoritarianism.” WATCH: Senator Shelly Capito Speaks about lack of […]

Biden’s Impeachable ‘Foreign Oil’ Policy

By Jihad Watch One long string of ‘quid-pro-quos’ that have led to international wars and terrorism. Five years after Trump was impeached over accusations that he pressured Ukraine for political reasons, Biden is pressuring Ukraine for political reasons with no impeachment in sight. Recent reports in the UK’s Telegraph and Financial Times suggest that Biden is demanding that Ukraine […]

Young adults losing the climate faith in the U.S. and only one third of voters think the IPCC experts are right

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow Good news: despite 2023 being the hottest year since Homo Erectus, there was a 17% fall in the number of 18 to 34-year-olds who call “Climate change”  a very serious problem. Even though there were hottest-ever-headlines month after month, the punters lost the faith. No one is cracking champagne because 50% […]

Wind Turbine Related Radiation: Wind Energy is NOT Free, Clean, or Green

By John Droz, Jr. This is the last in a recent series I’ve posted about radiation and some of our energy sources. It started with a commentary arguing that there are good reasons to categorize Nuclear power as a “renewable” source of electrical energy. Next was Nuclear Power Radiation — Part 1 (which outlined radiation from normal nuclear power operations, […]

What has Global Warming got to do with the War against Hamas?

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities In early April, an offshoot of the Just Stop Oil eco-activist group calling themselves Youth Demand descended upon the London HQ of the UK Labour Party and sprayed it all over with red paint.

Nuclear Power Radiation — Part 1

By John Droz, Jr. Recently, I posted a commentary arguing that there are good reasons to categorize Nuclear power as a “renewable” source of electrical energy. One reader said OK, but what about the radiation problem? My answer is what radiation problem? I’ll break down this technical matter into two parts, and try to keep it understandable to non-scientists. Part 1 […]

It’s coal to the rescue as wind and solar fail to keep German lights on

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow In Germany they call it the “Energiewende,” meaning energy transition, and it doesn’t work. Germans have been forced to come to grips with sober energy reality after binging on more than half a trillion Euros of so-called “alternative” energy, such as wind turbines and solar panels.  This dramatically increased the price of […]

Nuclear Is A Renewable Energy: Wind and Solar lobbyists are fighting this reality!

By John Droz, Jr. As a physicist, I believe that one of the reasons that intelligent energy policies have not gained sufficient traction is that we are allowing those with political agendas (vs independent scientists) to define some key energy terms. [One thing I know from golf, is that a match is usually won or lost […]

DAVID BLACKMON: Having Biden Declare A Climate Emergency Is A Crazy Idea
