Go for it Marita. Energy independence is something everyone claims to desire. It’s how to get there that’s the disagreement.

It’s easy to pander to the Luddites.
A typical coal plant is 1000 MW and used to cost 1 billion to build. This Mississippi disaster is now breaking a record for stupid.
Latest from the EPA, they want to clean the air but guarantee electricity availability.
Now let’s assume that the West was committed to piddle power from solar and wind and willing to shut up coal, even nuclear energy plants and compromise the grid or increase prices and decrease access, increasing dependence on Russian Natural Gas.
Imagine, to borrow from John Lennon the peacenik.
Lookee hear at the great Climate Depot website.
The Tesla electric car is a darling of the Rich and Yuppie enviro crowd who want to believe it’s a “green” vehicle and want to show off their tree hugging credentials. Of course the truth ain’t quite that simple, but that’s a discussion for another day.
That being said, it seems to have run afoul of political business as usual in… New Jersey. Continue reading
Why do I have my doubts about the reasons Walmart would buy Hydrogen cell tech?
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.
