Wind Energy Costs exceed Benefits

by Mary Kay Barton, Master Resource  Industrial wind is a net loser, economically, environmentally, technically and civilly.

Ecofreaks bastardize science, policy, and education

by Marita Noon Over a three-year period, 2009-2012, Department of Justice data shows American taxpayers footed the bill for more than $53 million in environmental groups’ legal fees—and the actual number could be much higher.

Solar flares up

by Marita Noon It is amazing that something that seems as upbeat as “free” electricity from the sun can have such a dark side. I started covering some of the shenanigans from the solar industry last summer when I wrote about the “Green Tea Party” in Georgia. I had no idea what a can of …

Death by Renewables (Liberals hate Bald Eagles)

by Marita Noon “Even green projects have an impact on their surrounding environment.” Green energy, specifically so-called renewables, has been sold to the American public as the answer to a host of crimes against the planet.

Harry Reid got Green Energy Dollars for Nevada

by Marita Noon We are weeks away from being fully immersed in the 2014 election cycle. Predictions abound, likening the 2014 cycle to 2010—when the House flipped from Democratic to Republican.

Green Energy raises taxes, kills birds, and sucks America’s economy – but Obama pushes it

It was in the 1970s, following the OPEC Oil Embargo that solar panels began popping up on rooftops and “gasohol” subsidies were enacted. It was believed that green energy would move the U.S. off …

CCS is a cultish waste of money and energy

by Steve Goreham, The Washington Times   The war on climate change has produced many dubious “innovations.” Intermittent wind and solar energy sources, carbon markets that buy and sell “hot air,” and biofuels that burn food as we drive are just a few examples. But carbon capture and storage is the Edsel of energy policies. Carbon …
