Sep 17, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, The climate effect of our electric-car efforts in the 2020s will be trivial. If every country achieved its stated ambitious electric-vehicle targets by 2030, we'd slow down #globalwarming by 0.0002°F by the end of the century. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 14, 2022 ~ Peter Thiel, "The climate debate ignores the reasons we burn fossil fuels in the first place. Alex Epstein reminds us that rich countries may be able to treat green lifestyles as luxury fashion, but for much of the world reliable energy is a matter of life and death." [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 7, 2022 ~ Michael Shellenberger, Long thread explaining why we physically cannot transition to solar/wind renewables regardless of what misguided laws and subsidies politicians pass. People say fossil fuels are "finite" but they are abundant. So called "Renewables" rely on RARE earth metals. Will run out faster. "Solar/wind projects need ~300x more land, 300% more copper, and 700% more rare earths than fossil fuels. Wind/solar/batteries require: 1,000% more steel, concrete and glass; 300% more copper; and 4,200%, 2,500%, 1,900%, and 700% more lithium, graphite, nickel, and rare earths, respectively, than fossil fuels, to produce the same amount of energy, according to IEA and others." [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 6, 2022 ~ Fox Business, "Experts blame green energy policies for Europe's full-scale energy crisis: 'A warning to the US'" 'There's been under-investment in fossil fuels in Europe,' an analyst from research firm Rystad Energy tells FOX Business. Europe is paying for their 'green' policies. [Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Sep 6, 2022 ~ CA and other Dem states are following Europe and Sri Lanka over the cliff by banning gas powered cars by 2030. This is madness and not remotely possible. The electrical grid is currently failing in CA with just 5% electric cars and almost all electricity generated by fossil fuels. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Energy]
Aug 28, 2022 ~ John Hayward 'Russia Burning Off $10M in Gas a Day That Would Have Been Sent to Europe' "The Russians are burning 4.34 million cubic meters of gas... destroying enough fuel to supply 1.5 million European homes." The Europeans harmed themselves and the CO2 is being emitted anyway! [Climate Change, Economy, Energy]
Aug 21, 2022 ~ Jazz Shaw, 'BLM [Bureau of Land Management] suspends most oil/gas leases in Colorado' Biden is doubling down on the policies that lost our energy independence and caused skyrocketing energy prices. Beholden to environmental nuts. [Climate Change, Economics, Energy]
Aug 14, 2022 ~ MIT Climatologist Richard Lindzen & Princeton Physics Prof. William Happer, "In our opinion, science demonstrates that there is no climate related risk caused by fossil fuels and CO2 and no climate emergency." "Without fossil fuels there will be no low-cost energy worldwide." [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Jul 21, 2022 ~ Gov. DeSantis criticizes Biden, "How come it’s wrong to produce our own oil and gas here, but you can go to Saudi Arabia and fist bump to try to get it from a Saudi?" "it makes no sense that we wouldn’t do it. We have opportunities here to be energy independent." [Biden, Climate Change, Energy]
Jul 17, 2022 ~ Clarice Feldman, "Sri Lanka learned a sad lesson - mandated “organic farming” proved a horrible disaster. Ghana also face starvation and national collapse as a result of green policies... Farmers in the Netherlands are striking in protest of equally unworkable green mandates." [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy, Environment]
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Sri Lanka has fallen. Its President had to flee the country. Destroyed via Modern Monetary Theory. Bankrupted themselves with debt and 55% inflation. Got an ESG score of 98 by banning fertilizer and pesticides. Major food shortages. Democrats want to follow right off the cliff. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy, Environment]
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Stephen Moore, 'How Angela Merkel's Green Agenda Caused the Economic Collapse of Germany' Merkel used to be praised for shutting down nuclear and moving away from fossil fuels toward "green" energy. "Today, the German economy is in tatters." Begging Russia for energy. Rationing. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Sen. Manchin, one of 2 sane Democrat Senators, kills the climate change part of BBB bill. He understands it is unaffordable, will fuel inflation and most importantly would do nothing to make the climate any better. The rest of the Dems are apololyptic: “We’re all going to die” [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy, Politics]
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Texas power grid is again on the brink because it relied too much on "green" energy even though it has plenty of oil and gas. "Powerful high-pressure systems that cause intense heat often squelch wind production - just when more power is needed to meet higher electricity demand." [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Jul 15, 2022 ~ Biden's trip abroad is a predicable disaster. First he fellates the Saudis begging for more oil because he stupidly shut down our own production, screwing consumers to appease green whackos. Then he insults multiple of our allies by comparing the Irish to the Palestinians. [Biden, Economy, Energy, Israel]
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Now they are back to blaming Putin for gas prices. When asked how long will this last, Biden said, "As long as it takes, so Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine." Biden Advisor Brian Deese added "This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have to stand firm." [Biden, Economics, Economy, Energy, Russia]
Jul 5, 2022 ~ The Biden Administration is switching from the lie that high gas prices are Putin's fault to blaming gas stations for the price! "Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now," he yells. Economically ignorant. [Biden, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Jul 5, 2022 ~ In West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that Obama's 'Clean Power Plan' was unconstitutional because "A decision of such magnitude and consequence rests with Congress itself" as it "exceeded the [EPA's] statutory authority" to regulate CO2. [Climate Change, Energy, SCOTUS]
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Stephen Moore, "Biden's Green New Deal Is Increasing Greenhouse Gases" "After more than a decade of declining carbon emissions here in the United States, in 2021, President Joe Biden's first year in office, emissions rose." Reducing fracking reduced the % of cleaner natural gas. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Jun 7, 2022 ~ Stephen Moore, 'Beware: 100% Green Energy Could Destroy the Planet' "Study by the World Bank showing that moving toward 100% solar, wind and electric battery energy would be just as destructive to the planet as fossil fuels." Details for why its not at all feasible to transition. [Climate Change, Energy]
Jun 4, 2022 ~ Robert Zubrin, 'Our Fossil-Fuels Future' Reviews Alex Epstein's 'The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels' Shows how FFs drove "the unprecedented gains in health, productivity, education, mobility, safety, life spans, leisure time, living standards, environmental quality" and much more. [Climate Change, Energy]
Apr 10, 2022 ~ Pete Buttigieg, "Until we achieve a form of energy independence that is based on clean energy created here at home, American citizens will still be vulnerable to wild price hikes like we are seeing right now." So clueless and out of touch. Energy would cost 10X that way. [Climate Change, Energy]
Apr 10, 2022 ~ Tim Meads, 'Wind Energy Company Fined $8 Million After Turbines Kill At Least 150 Eagles' "wind turbines kill an average of 230,000 birds a year in North America, says the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The number will grow as more turbines are deployed." [Climate Change, Energy]
Mar 31, 2022 ~ John Stossel, 'Renewable Failure' "Countries that embraced renewables are so desperate for power that they eagerly import coal, the worst polluter of all!" Germany stupidly closed all its nuclear plants. Now they are desperate to buy power from Russia. Paying 3X what US pays. [Climate Change, Economics, Energy, Russia]
Mar 19, 2022 ~ Biden and Europe made themselves dependent on foreign oil to uselessly climate change posture. Europe can't quit Russian energy because they foolishly cut their own supplies. Biden said no more Russian oil but then buys more from Venezuela and Iran. Maduro will buy from Russia. [Climate Change, Economics, Energy, Russia]
Mar 9, 2022 ~ Gas prices hit a record high. The price of gas, and prices in general have been rising for more than a year. The Biden Administration blames the war in Ukraine which started about a week ago. "The Putin spike" they call it. How did that war increase gas prices for 14 months? [Economics, Economy, Energy, Fake News]
Feb 6, 2022 ~ Monica Showalter, "Germany to raze a 1,000-year-old forest in the name of 'going green'" Foolishly killed all their nuclear plants.

Jan 18, 2022 ~ Stephen Moore 'Remember US Energy Independence Day?' "The Trump energy policy was an astonishing economic success... First time in nearly 50 years, the US was producing more oil than we were consuming." We're "back to energy dependence. Biden has declared war on American energy." [Economy, Energy, Trump Win]
Jan 2, 2022 ~ Gabriella Hoffman, 'Alex Epstein Explains How Fossil Fuels Lead to Human Flourishing' The pros of using fossil fuels outweigh the cons by probably a million to 1.

Dec 3, 2021 ~ Wendell Husebø, "Biden to Increase U.S. Oil Lease Fees 50% While Accusing ‘Big Oil’ of Anticompetitive Activities" As Americans are suffering very high gas prices, Biden is doing everything he possibly can to make the problem worse by reducing the supply and cost of the product. [Biden, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Nov 26, 2021 ~ Washington Post, "Biden administration pushes to raise rates for oil and gas drilling on public lands and waters, citing climate change." Americans are hurting from high gas prices and Biden is doing everything he can to make it worse. Increase energy costs, reducing supply etc. [Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Nov 11, 2021 ~ Total moron Cori Bush to oil execs "Promoting [fossil fuels] means promoting environmental racism and violence in Black and Brown communities. You all are still promoting and selling fossil fuels that are killing millions of people. This is a striking example of White supremacy." [Climate Change, Energy, Environment, Fake News, Fake Racism]
Nov 9, 2021 ~ Biden comptroller of the currency nominee Saule Omarova admits they want to bankrupt the "coal industry and oil and gas industry." "A lot of smaller players in that industry are probably going to go bankrupt." "We want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change." [Climate Change, Economy, Energy]
Oct 31, 2021 ~ Energy Sec. Granholm on rise in gas prices: "Gas prices, of course, are based upon a global oil market. That oil market is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is OPEC."

Oct 10, 2021 ~ Stephen Moore, 'Fossil Fuels Are Back – Everywhere Except in the USA' "when Trump left office, America was all but energy self-sufficient and even an energy exporter." Biden killed that. China has 1000 coal plants building a new one per week. Europe is forced back to coal also. [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 22, 2021 ~ Joe Biden makes totally ridiculous, borderline insane comments but has no idea how absurd they are. “We’ve set a goal that by 2025 our power sector will be free of carbon and 2030, 50% of the cars should be, must be electric vehicles.” Both of these things have a 0% chance. [Climate Change, Energy]
Aug 13, 2021 ~ Months after Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline which would have carried 830K barrels of oil per day in North America and killed domestic drilling, he is now begging OPEC to increase production again after they already agreed to increase by 400K barrels per day. What a clown. [Climate Change, Energy]
Jul 8, 2021 ~ Gas prices are up 40% since Biden took office and he's doing everything he can to make them soar higher. Stopping drilling, killing pipelines and now increasing taxes on fossil fuel companies by $90 billion. All of that $90 billion will be passed on to Biden's voters. [Energy, Taxes]
Jul 7, 2021 ~ John Sexton, 'UK researchers: You can't stop climate change and have our current economic system' They admit how far our standard of livings would have to be cut to attain their emissions goals. Americans would have to cut energy use by 90% and families of 4 live in 600 sq feet! [Climate Change, Energy]
Jun 11, 2021 ~ TC Energy has canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline for good now that Biden blocked it. That pipeline would have helped jobs, the environment, energy independence and energy prices and would not have increased climate change. Biden is undoing all of the good Trump did in record time. [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Jun 1, 2021 ~ Rep. Rashida Tlaib berates bank CEOs, accusing them of complicity in "environmental racism." She falsely links the higher rate of #COVID19 in the Black community to investments in fossil fuels that banks have made over the decades. "I need you all to address racial equity." [Coronavirus, Energy, Environment, Fake Racism]
May 28, 2021 ~ Terry Paulding, 'The huge, destructive green lie.' Windmills have already killed 3 BILLION birds and Dems want to have many times what we have now.

May 26, 2021 ~ Andrea Widburg, 'The African slavery behind the leftists' green dreams' Increasing the amount of electric cars will overload the electrical grid and lead to more child slave labor in Africa which is still used to mine the cobalt and destroys the environment. EV's do not scale. [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
May 20, 2021 ~ Biden waives sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia, a gift to Putin, while he kills pipelines in the US that would have provided 1000s of jobs and would help with US energy independence. Rich Lowry, 'This story would be a 5 alarm fire if it happened under Trump." [Economy, Energy, Russia]
Mar 6, 2021 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'What Caused the Texas Blackouts?' Deregulation was not the problem. Renewables were not the problem. They did go to 0 but Texas is not dumb enough to rely on them. And some of the precautions that can be taken against extreme cold don't work in extreme heat. [Energy, Kevin Williamson]
Feb 23, 2021 ~ AOC lashes out at Joe Manchin for not supporting Interior Sec. Deb Haaland who is rabidly against fossil fuels. @AOC Claims 'Jeff Sessions was so openly racist that even Reagan couldn’t appoint him,' and Manchin voted for him. Totally false. Sessions is not a racist at all. [Energy, For the record, it’s Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez]
Feb 22, 2021 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Ask an Engineer'. Still investigating Texas power fail but Texas on its own power grid was not a contributing factor. And when they looked at putting Texas on one of the more national grids, they concluded that would make the system as a whole less reliable. [Energy, Kevin Williamson]
Feb 18, 2021 ~ WSJ, Between “2/8 and 2/16, wind power plunged 93% while coal in­creased 47% and gas 450%, ac­cord­ing to the EIA. Yet the re­new­able in­dus­try and its me­dia mouth­pieces are tar­ring gas, coal and nu­clear be­cause they didn’t op­er­ate at 100%.” If all renewable, we'd have 0 [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Feb 18, 2021 ~ The Texas winter storm that left millions without power exposes the flaws of moving to 100% 'renewable' energy. This would have been a week long event with 0 power for anyone. Jim Robb 'For batteries to play the ultimate backup system, we're so far away from that it's not funny.' [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
Feb 4, 2021 ~ Environmentalist Bjorn Lomborg admits the Paris Climate Accord would only lower global temperatures by 0.05°F by 2100. The cost benefits analysis of fighting climate change is off by about a million to 1. The pros of fossil fuels outweigh the cons by about a million to 1 as well.
