Brazil’s Economic Future Hinges on Fossil Fuels

By Vijay Jayaraj Brazil’s prosperity hinges on its capacity to harness the foundational element of any economy: energy.

The Cost of Wyoming’s Senseless CO2 Capture

by Frits Byron Soepyan Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has signed a piece of legislation that directs public utilities providing electricity to more than 10,000 customers to “generate a specified percentage of electricity that is dispatchable and reliable low‑carbon electricity.” This rule applies to existing coal‑fired plants and equivalent new plants. “Low-carbon” is defined as electricity… Continue Reading

Biden’s Climate Emergency: Green Policies on Steroids?

By Tilak Doshi According to a Bloomberg report last week, White House officials have renewed discussions about declaring a national “climate emergency”. The intent is not new. Six days after President Biden’s inauguration, the then newly minted Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called for the president to declare an emergency over the “climate crisis.” In 2022, the administration considered a similar… Continue Reading

EPA’s Electric Rationing Madness Short Circuits Any Benefit

By Larry Bell There was a time when the EPA provided vitally important services to clean up and protect America’s air, land, and water from truly toxic substances. That was before climate change madness ensued and essential plant-nourishing CO2 was deemed a “pollutant” to be eliminated by replacing reliable hydrocarbons that provide more than 80% of… Continue Reading

The Good Camel Story That Climate Fearmongers Don’t Tell

By Vijay Jayaraj For centuries, Somali pastoralists have relied on camels for sustenance, transport and social status. In recent decades, camel husbandry has evolved into a very profitable business, transforming the lives of many Somalis.

Climate Change Is Normal and Natural, and Can’t Be Controlled

by Frits Byron Soepyan NASA claimed that “Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate” and “human activity is the principal cause.” Others proposed spending trillions of dollars to control the climate. But are we humans responsible for climate change? And what can we do about it? “The climate of planet Earth has never stopped changing… Continue Reading

EVs, Wind, and Solar are Neither Reliable Nor Environmentally Friendly: Here’s Why

Wind and solar energy systems are not cheap, reliable or environmentally friendly, and EVs also prove to be dangerous, unreliable and expensive. by Byron Soepyan Various governments have made commitments to expand the use of electric vehicles (EVs) and alternative energy systems. The stated objectives include reducing pollution, improving human health and the environment, protecting the environment and providing reliable energy at… Continue Reading

Shapiro’s Senseless Expansion of Alternative Energy

By Gordon Tomb In 2004, Pennsylvania implemented one of the nation’s most aggressive mandates to adopt wind and solar energy. At the time, less than 1 percent of net energy generation came from these sources. In 2023, after nearly $1.5 billion in subsidies, wind and solar generated approximately 2 percent. So, what’s the point? That… Continue Reading

Here’s A Better Way For Billionaires To Give Their Money

By Wallace Manheimer Many of your fellow billionaires contribute large sums to “cure” a nonexistent climate crisis, falsely naming it an “existential threat.” They wrongly claim that wind and solar can support modern civilization. For instance, Michael Bloomberg has proudly committed $500 million to eliminate coal. Jeffery Bezos has committed $10 billion to a variety… Continue Reading

Arctic’s Inuit Seek Benefits of Fossil Fuel Economy

By Vijay Jayaraj The allure of the Arctic continues to captivate imaginations with its beautiful, if sometimes forbidding, wilderness. Equally captivating to some, beneath these vast landscapes of permafrost and ice, is the economic lure of oil and gas promising economic prosperity and development. However, for the Inuit communities in Canada, Alaska and Greenland, who… Continue Reading

No Reason ‘Green Energy,’ EV Batteries Should Escape Carbon Tax

By Larry Bell Those eager to tax U.S. and imported hydrocarbon energy products that emit CO2 in order to end many millions of years of climate change should be cautious regarding those “green alternatives” they wish for. Look no farther than “Foreign Pollution Fee Act” (FPFA) legislation proposed by Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Lindsey… Continue Reading

The Role of Nuclear in the Global World of Energy

By Dr. Lars Schernikau The world’s first nuclear power plant started operation near Moscow in 1954. The following decades saw hundreds of nuclear reactors being built around the world, with the United States, France, and China leading the build-out, making up about half of today’s global installations. About 90 per cent of today’s operating nuclear reactors were… Continue Reading

In Central Asia’s Brutal Winter, Fossil Fuels Trump Climate Politics

By Vijay Jayaraj Globally, winter cold kills more people than summer heat, and winter in Central Asia is no gentle visitor. Temperatures can plummet to minus 40°C (-40°F), transforming bustling cities into frozen landscapes and testing the limits of human endurance. Rich in history and diverse in geography, the region is also known for biting… Continue Reading

The Hockey Stick Trial: Science Dies in a DC Courtroom

By Rupert Darwall “Science,” wrote the philosopher Karl Popper, “is one of the very few human activities – perhaps the only one – in which errors are systematically criticised and fairly often, in time, corrected.” The sub-title of Popper’s 1963 book Conjectures and Refutations, in which he argued that science progresses through inspired conjectures checked by… Continue Reading

When (And Why) Heat Pumps Suck

By Ron Barmby When you need heat pumps the most, they pump heat the least. This is according to an unbreakable law of physics that applies to the entire universe without exception, even black holes, and especially to heat pumps. Heat pump promoters who claim otherwise must have defeated the second law of thermodynamics, which would… Continue Reading

Climate Agenda Makes Vital CO2 a Dangerous Pollutant

By Larry Bell To get some sense of powerful political agenda influences on global climate and environmental policies, it’s instructive to revisit the acid rain hysteria of the late 1960s which led quite directly to demonization of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a “climate pollutant.” This second manufactured scare continues today, thanks to active assistance from… Continue Reading

Wind and Solar Slaughtering India’s Iconic Bird

By Vijay Jayaraj By commissioning expensive and inefficient wind and solar electric generating facilities, India may have dug the grave of its own efforts to save the critically endangered great Indian bustard. Erected to avert a faux climate crisis, the so-called renewable machines and their attendant transmission lines are helping to drive one of Earth’s… Continue Reading

Health of Fish Stocks Contradict Climate Alarmists Predictions

By Vijay Jayaraj The oceans are still very much a mystery to humankind, with a vast majority of it yet to be explored. Early in my career, I wanted to make an in-depth study of how climate affected marine life. After all, many media reports claimed that “oceans will become empty by 2048.” So, as… Continue Reading

No Climate Crisis for Thriving Honeybees

By Vijay Jayaraj Writing anything good about climate change runs the risk of the writer getting lynched metaphorically by the online enforcers of a cultist apocalyptic narrative. For years, doomsayers have insisted that polar bears are in danger of extinction because of man-made warming even as experts have shown that populations have actually increased. So… Continue Reading
