Russia on a Roll Against Enviro West

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.

Political payoffs vs. (supposed) Enviro friendliness. Guess who wins?

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

Solar and Wind Savagery

As comfy and cozy “leaders” in the West try shutting down the coal industry..

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.

Important Junk Science in Economics and Public Policy

Howard Hayden Loves Physics

When people ask me what I am I say–a physician.

‘Green energy’ via press release and tax money

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…

Stand Up Coal People

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.
