Tim Poole Quote

Feb 20, 2024 ~ 'Britain’s Disastrous Path to Net Zero Is a Warning to the U.S.' Another cautionary tale that Biden is ignoring. The UK seems to be following Germany over the green energy cliff. As a result, Brits pay almost 2X for energy vs. the US. Less reliable and does not reduce 'worldwide' emissions a bit - it just shifts them around. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Energy]
Jan 22, 2024 ~ Nick Pope, 'Germany Went All In On The Green Transition. Now, Its Economy Is Crumbling'. Merkel closing all of Germany's nuclear plants was one of the dumbest things a politician has ever done. They go all in on green energy. The first thing that happens is Germany becomes dependent on Russian natural gas. Then they have to RESTART old coal plants to keep the lights and heat on. Energy prices soar almost 50% killing consumers and forcing businesses to close or move out of the country. "It is not [even] reducing emissions, because manufacturing is being shifted to other nations, like China and India, that use dirtier energy. The German economy is going down, and their people do not have the jobs and economic opportunities that they used to." [Climate Change, Energy]
Dec 9, 2023 ~ David Strom, 'Washington State Economist Refused to Lie, So They Forced Him Out' Economist Scott Smith was forced to resign for correctly saying that cap and trade would increase gas prices. Opposing the narrative, no matter how absurd, has consequences. [Cancel Culture, Climate Change, Energy, Silencing]
Oct 13, 2023 ~ Australia is about to bulldoze old-growth forests that contain endangered koala bear habitats to put up wind turbines. They are harming a beloved endangered species and clearing old-growth forest land in service to a cult that does more environmental harm than good. [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 11, 2023 ~ Sean Moran, 'Biden to Cancel Alaska Oil, Gas Leases Issued Under Trump' Inflation and energy prices are not high enough for Biden so he is canceling leases for 20 million ANWR acres of land that Trump opened up. Biden lost our energy independence. [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 11, 2023 ~ Jennifer Granholm makes a fool of herself doing an EV road trip with her team. They can't find enough chargers. Someone on her team used a gas powered car to reserve a charger blocking a family with a baby from using it. They called the cops. Imagine if more people used EVs. [Climate Change, Energy]
Aug 29, 2023 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, "Climate alarmism over heat waves, fires drives false ‘solutions’" "Avoiding both heat and cold deaths requires affordable energy. In the US, cheap gas from fracking allowed millions to keep warmer with low budgets, saving 12,500 lives yearly. Climate policy, which makes most energy more expensive, achieves the opposite." [Climate Change, Energy]
Aug 28, 2023 ~ Olivia Murray, 'Modest Texas town repurposed into a dumping ground for expired wind turbine blades' Even no where near net zero usage, wind blades generate over 100 MILLION pounds of landfill waste EACH YEAR! Filling small towns like Sweetwater. Not green. [Climate Change, Energy]
Aug 19, 2023 ~ Stephen Moore, 'Is It Time to Ban Electric Vehicles?' A lot of people are dying in EV fires even with not that many people having them yet. Those fires are very difficult to extinguish including random explosions. EVs are impractical AND dangerous. [Climate Change, Energy]
Jul 25, 2023 ~ Beege Welborn, 'Holy smoke and mirrors: Solar panels THREE TIMES more carbon intensive than natural gas' Also solar panels made in China produce 3X the carbon emissions the IPCC claims! #ClimateScam [Climate Change, Energy]
Jul 14, 2023 ~ Max Laraia & Richard Morrison, 'The Carbon-Offset Market Is about to Crash and Burn' Important article. Reveals that the carbon offset market is a total scam. Even GreenPeace, @washingtonpost and ProPublica admits it. Money transfer, no climate benefit. [Climate Change, Economics, Energy]
Jun 16, 2023 ~ Capell Aris, 'Green energy disaster in the UK should be an awful warning to Americans' A sober warning to Americans not to follow the fools of the UK and Germany off the cliff they jumped off of. Their insane policies led to a total debacle. But Biden and the democrats are trying their best to follow over the cliff. [Climate Change, Energy]
Apr 9, 2023 ~ Irony. Wind farms are being torn down in Germany to be able to mine the coal underneath. Germany fell for the 'green energy' scam and got caught with their pants down. They have been facing massive energy shortages and shortfalls forcing them to buy lots of oil from Russia. [Climate Change, Energy, Russia]
Apr 7, 2023 ~ Oxford mathematician, physicist, researcher at CERN and Fellow of Keble College, Emeritus Professor Wade Allison says "Wind power fails on every count." "Whichever way you look at it, wind power is inadequate. It is intermittent and unreliable; it is exposed and vulnerable; it is weak with a short life-span." [Climate Change, Energy]
Mar 10, 2023 ~ Robert Bishop, 'New geological study proves that the green energy movement is impossible to achieve' The numbers don't remotely add up to get 'Net Zero' by 2050. [Climate Change, Energy]
Mar 10, 2023 ~ After making several false and ignorant statements about inflation and fossil fuels, Rep. Cori Bush accuses witness @AlexEpstein of having 'white supremacist views' rather than try to deal with the correctness of his arguments about energy and fossile fuels. Typical Dem tactic. [Climate Change, Energy, Fake Racism, Loathsome Left]
Mar 10, 2023 ~ 'Dirty Mining, Slavery, and Child Labor Are at the Core of Elites’ Green Energy Obsession' "A large % of the cobalt is produced from small mines, where child labor is the norm, not the exception." "Much of the mining and refining of materials in China is produced by forced or slave labor." [Climate Change, Energy, Slavery]
Jan 18, 2023 ~ Rich Lowry, "No, You Can’t Believe ‘the Science’" "The debate over gas stoves illustrates perfectly the faux scientific method." Flawed studies quickly become #FakeNews "Gas stove pollution causes 12.7% of childhood asthma." See also COVID, Climate Change. [Climate Change, Energy, Environment, Fake News, Rich Lowry]
Nov 19, 2022 ~ Disgusting, spoiled children continue to vandalize priceless works of historical art to make some point about fossil fuels. They dumped black paint on a Gustav Klimt masterpiece in Vienna. Do the opposite of anything they demand. [Climate Change, Energy, Loathsome Left]
Nov 13, 2022 ~ John Stossel, 'Inconvenient Facts' No carbon reduction for the first 60K miles. And even if you made 500K EVs, that would only reduce oil consumption by 10%. And most electricity generated by fossil fuels. EVs are an almost total waste. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Energy]
Oct 26, 2022 ~ Robert Walton, "The energy system is ‘inherently racist,’ advocates say. How are utilities responding to calls for greater equity?" No real examples of racism could be found for this article but it mentions the 'racial reckoning' from George Floyd where every entity must self identify as being 'racist' and vow to "do better." [Energy, Fake News, Fake Racism, George Floyd]
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. "Germany is trashing its most beautiful forest in the name of 'going green.'" 20 million square meters while they import natural gas from Russia. [Climate Change, Energy, Environment]
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. "fossil fuels didn't take a safe climate and make it dangerous; they took a dangerous climate and made it far safer." [Climate Change, Energy]
