Jun 14, 2024 ~ 'You Paid Hundreds of Millions for Solar Power to Wreck the Environment' "Your tax dollars will subsidize a solar company cutting down thousands of protected and rare [centuries old] Joshua trees and destroying habitat for the endangered desert tortoise to make way for a massive energy project in California."   "According to the National Park Service, Joshua trees are a key part of the desert ecosystem, 'providing habitat for numerous birds, mammals, insects, and lizards,' and are on average 150 years old, although many are much older than that."   "Solar power also creates about 300 times more toxic waste per unit of electricity generated than nuclear-power plants do, because solar panels use extremely hazardous materials like sulfuric acid and toxic phosphine gas in their manufacturing." They can also take decades to make up for the CO2 used to create and transport them and its not clear they last that long.   "After 50 years and hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, loads of regulatory advantages, and political support, solar power generated under 4 percent of America’s electricity in 2023." [Climate Change, Environment]
Jun 9, 2024 ~ "Fact-Checking Wind and Solar Claims: Climate Expert Makes Case for ‘Realism’" When it comes to energy, "nuclear is probably the future and should have been the present," climatologist David Legates says.   "Wind, solar, and electric vehicles aren’t the clean energy accomplishments that many claim, climatologist David Legates says.   'The lithium … all of the rare earth minerals that are necessary for the batteries, that are necessary for the solar panels, that are necessary for the wind turbines … are called rare earths,' Legates explains.   These rare earth minerals are acquired through strip mining, he says, a process that involves putting large chunks of earth into a solution. Once the minerals are extracted, what is left is a toxic sludge lake.'"   "We’re all told it’s clean and green because you see it’s spinning there or you see the panel sitting there, it’s not producing gases. But to get to that stage, there has been an awful lot of disastrous and environmental and social efforts that have gone on behind the scenes."   "If carbon dioxide goes up, will temperature follow? And the answer is yes, slightly.   However, most of the absorption bands that we have with carbon dioxide are already saturated. So what that means is that, essentially, if you had no carbon dioxide or no greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at all, the addition of some makes a big deal. But as you start to add more and more and more, you get less of an impact. And so by the time we are where we are now, more carbon dioxide really doesn’t do a whole lot.   And so if we doubled carbon dioxide now, we get maybe a degree Celsius of warming and that would be it. And certainly it’s not worth the economic impacts that people want it to have." [Climate Change, Environment]
Jun 9, 2024 ~ "The Quest for a ‘Clean Economy’ Collides with Reality" "A typical Tesla Model 3 battery, which contains six kilograms of lithium, eight kilograms of cobalt, eight kilograms of aluminum, 17 kilograms of copper, 42 kilograms of nickel, and 55 kilograms of graphite. All of these materials come from somewhere, and that somewhere is underground — often, far beneath the surface. As a rule, underground mines make for very uncongenial neighbors. Their sites are dirty and dusty, loud, crowded with vehicular traffic, liable to pollute aquifers and generate toxic waste, and demanding of enormous quantities of water. Underground extraction can also conflict with deeply rooted cultural, historical, and social norms and practices." [Climate Change, Economics, Environment]
Jun 6, 2024 ~ "California ‘clean energy’ company set to bulldoze more than 3,500 Joshua trees, so coastal homes can go ‘carbon neutral’" The insanity continues. So called 'clean energy' is often very bad for the environment. [California, Climate Change, Environment]

[CRT DIE Wokeness, Debt, Deficit, Environment]
Nov 9, 2023 ~ Olivia Murray, "Harvard study: deforestation for solar panels major cause of ‘emissions’" "Since 2010, over 5,000 acres of natural and working lands have been destroyed for solar development in Massachusetts, resulting in the emission of over half a million metric tons of CO₂ - more than the annual emissions of 100,000 passenger cars." "When these panels reach the end of their lifespan, they become piles of toxic waste, as they contain high amounts of heavy metals." "By 2050, the disposal of worn-out solar panels will constitute over double the tonnage of all of today’s global plastic waste." [Climate Change, Environment]
Nov 4, 2023 ~ Brianna Lyman, "It Takes Trucker Two Minutes To Pick Apart The EV Narrative: ‘You Would Need To Pack 50,000 Pounds Of Batteries’" Fantastic article exposing the absurdity of the net-zero idea. The numbers do not even remotely add up. [Climate Change, Economics, Environment]
Oct 1, 2023 ~ Joe Biden’s IRA committed more than $100 million to promote ‘tree equity’ and over $1 billion to expand 'access to trees.'

"Our transportation systems are still grappling with the consequences of the pandemic, climate change, and decades of disinvestment." 'Systemic racism' and 'climate change': Two of the Democrat's biggest false narratives. [Climate Change, Environment, Fake Racism]
