Rick Moran picked up on the news.

Now an alternative energy project in Nevada burns birds out of the air.
These enviros are monsters. First the turbines, now the mirrors.
People in countries such as Pakistan, where poverty really does mean starving to death (one of the very positive things about the US is that no one, aside from the occasional “outlier” that can never be completely cleared, does so), are avidly looking at developing their coal resources.

The goofy administration of a goofy president now announces 30 year permits to Cuisinart large raptor birds.
I can’t make this stuff up.
You might say, well JunkScience shouldn’t touch on political issues–and what would you call chemophobia, climate change, and policy decisions on climate, energy policy, and air pollution?
There are many who say the State of the Union Address has become a bore.
However, it does say something. Marita Noon, our ally on energy issues, comments.
I think you will see the irony in this nonsense from the left.
When people ask me what I am I say–a physician.
I have met so many fine minds who feel the same way about their work–they are physicists.
Howard Hayden is one example
From my friend, great physicist and advocate for sensible energy policy and reliable climate science, Gordon Fulks.
In the latest “green energy” news, another gov’t facility has issued a press release announcing their Big Step forward. In this case, they’re claiming a major breakthrough in rapid conversion of algae into fuel oil and other hydrocarbons.
To be fair to them, they’re reasonably cautious in their statements. Of course, they’re calling for more funding. Oh, and they’ve got a commercial partner who’s participating courtesy of gov’t (taxpayer) grants…
Tim Ball is an environmental scientist of great repute and on the front lines of the battle with the green thugs.
He asserts that the Coal industry has to start fighting back. No doubt, they have been mugged and dragged for providing affordable clean electricity. Damn shame such a fine bunch of people would suffer from the eco politics arrayed against the coal production and electricity generation business.
Steve Goreham is a prolific and articulate writer and lecturer on climate issues.
Invented, far as I can tell, the term Climatism to characterize the fanatic movement. Title of his first book and part of the title of his second.
Marita Noon is a reliable and effective writer, regular columnist at Town Hall, lecturer and ally fighting goofy environmentalism and warming issues.
She also is a bird lover like most of us hard bitten conservatives. What’s not to love about a raptor, even a little finch?
This is a good summary of real world energy issues, sans the foaming hysteria of the enviros.
It’s like a seance man, yesterday, Sel Graham sets out the reasons why ethanol is really stupid.
Energy efficiency is really stupid public policy. Doesn’t work as it just makes things cost more. Continue reading
How long will it take homeowners (new or old) to recoup those costs? Continue reading

“We hold DOE’s feet to a not-so-decorative fire.” Continue reading
“The reality for most people will be that the Green Deal [i.e., a UK energy efficiency program] ends up costing them more than they save.” Continue reading
