Will we have an EU Revolt?

Václav Klaus, previous president of the Czech Republic, comments on the European Commission’s ‘climate package’:

This EU climate package is not bold. It is stupid and nonsensical. It is unrealistic, and if it were to be implemented, it would be a completely destructive package. Completely destructive to the lives, freedom and living standards of the people of Europe.

Will Germany Become a Third World Country?

By Anonymous German Author – D
December 17, 2020

At the moment I’m quite sure that Germany will end as a third world country. The closing of coal-fired power stations and nuclear power plants is a done deal by end of 2022 (for nuclear power) and 2030 (for coal power).

To compensate for the tremendous loss of energy, many wind turbines and solar power plants are planned and realized near the North Sea coast. Politicians of the Green Party are howling that these plans are too late for the Earth to survive.

But the power from wind and sun in Germany is only 10% for solar and 25% for wind. The rest of the power will be bought from coal and nuclear power plants abroad (Romania, Poland, France, Belgium…).

Germany will be the first country with pure and clean energy…and many people are proud of this.

Yesterday, an electric car was driving in front of me with a sticker “Say NO to nuclear power.” Sometimes I really do not know in which direction I should shake my head!

Get Ready for Nationwide Blackouts Under Biden

California’s climate and energy policies will bring thousands of blackouts to entire country

Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris

The power disaster unfolding in California will soon occur across the country, if Joe Biden gets his way. The Golden State has been sweeping away the forms of energy that have provided reliable electricity for decades, under the same agenda the former Vice-President is planning for America as a whole.

Power outages are now commonplace in California. Last summer, the state suffered its first rolling blackouts in nearly 20 years. Imagine if this happened in Chicago in the middle of winter. Continue reading “Get Ready for Nationwide Blackouts Under Biden”

British Prime Minister Announces 200% Rise in Electricity Prices

From: https://www.thegwpf.com/boris-johnson-announces-200-rise-in-electricity-prices/

London, 6 October: Ignoring clear evidence that the underlying economics of renewables are disastrous, the Prime Minister has today committed the UK to a further expansion of offshore wind power by 2030, with frightening implications for electricity prices, which would have to treble to pay the real costs.

This is not only economically foolish, but incoherent climate policy since today’s decision will ensure that other low emission goals, such as the electrification of vehicles and domestic heating, become unaffordable for most Britons.

Thought Bubbles from Canberra – more useless energy policies

By Viv Forbes

The Australian Minister for Promoting Useless Energy thinks that hydrogen fuel, carbon capture and storage, soil carbon and biofuels are priorities for energy policy and greenhouse gas reduction.

If that’s the best our leaders can come up with, Australia should have voted Green last election to speed the inevitable recession and blackouts that will eventually kill this tsunami of energy nonsense.

The Enormous and Continuing Cost of Canada’s Climate Policies

By Robert Lyman

In this PowerPoint presentation, I have tried to answer a question about climate policy that is too rarely asked in Canada. How much does it cost? Only those with a profound ignorance of economics, or a contempt for it, would say that the answer to this question is unimportant. The central economic fact of life is that there are always more things that we want and need than we can afford; when we fail to understand what our choices cost, we indirectly deprive ourselves of things that may be far more important to our overall wellbeing.

Net-Zero by 2050? Albanese Goes for Broke

From: https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/doomed-planet/2020/02/net-zero-by-2050-albanese-goes-for-broke/

There’s no great mystery about what Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese’s net-zero-by-2050 emissions announcement last weekend will cost. The answer: trillions galore. How do I know? Because Dr Brian Fisher, former head of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, who has no political allegiance and no vested interest, last May in the run-up to the federal election costed a much weaker version of Albanese’s plan. These costs were astronomic: a maximum $540 billion by 2030. Continue reading “Net-Zero by 2050? Albanese Goes for Broke”

Providing 100 Percent Energy from Renewable Sources Is Impossible

By David Wojick. First published by https://www.heartland.org/.

Lately, many politicians at the federal, state, and local levels have unthinkingly bought into the talking points of radical environmentalists, pushing policies to require 100 percent of the electricity used in the United States to come from politically favored renewable energy sources, primarily wind and solar power.

Generating all of America’s electric power through wind and solar industrial facilities is an expensive pipedream. Continue reading “Providing 100 Percent Energy from Renewable Sources Is Impossible”

The “New Energy Economy”: An Exercise in Magical Thinking

This was originally published by “The Manhattan Institute:

A movement has been growing for decades to replace hydrocarbons, which collectively supply 84% of the world’s energy. It began with the fear that we were running out of oil. That fear has since migrated to the belief that, because of climate change and other environmental concerns, society can no longer tolerate burning oil, natural gas, and coal—all of which have turned out to be abundant.

Priorities for Australia

Poor policies are taking Australia into tough times.

There are four priorities for the coming election.

Firstly: Decimate the Foreign Green Snakes in the Grass.

The climate/emissions obsession started with unelected foreigners in the UN and the IPCC who drafted deep green agendas to be imposed via elected Federal, State and Local governments. Australia must immediately withdraw from the Lima/Paris/Kyoto agreements, reject the 2030 Agenda, and repeal all the green tape they spawned. This costly mess creates no measurable climate or environmental benefits.
