Maryland’s Conowingo Dam was built and has been in operation since the 1920’s. It is now operated by Susquehanna Electric Company which is a subsidiary of Exelon Power Corporation located in Chicago, Illinois. Recently the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted Exelon a 50-year license to operate the dam that supplies hydroelectric power to Susquehanna… Read More Environmentalists Sue To Close Maryland Hydroelectric Dam
Germany’s supreme auditors issued a scathing rebuke of Germany’s Green energy scheme and even warned about its spiraling costs a few years ago. Now the auditors bluntly state Green energy poses “an existential threat” to Germany. From No Tricks Zone: “Daniel Wetzel at German national daily Die Welt reports on the latest German Federal Court… Read More German Supreme Auditors: Green energy “an existential threat to German economy”
According to Tony Heller, neither does global warming, but fossil fuels do. It’s just easier to take the money supporting the so-called consensus rather than do the actual research. Image by Boyan Chen from Pixabay
Tony Heller points out the core problem is that we have a few very rich people controlling the flow of information, which is leading to very bad policy.
The wind turbines shut down in Texas, and (as Tony Heller points out) now green energy scamsters are spinning the truth to place the blame on somebody else.
Last week’s storm in Texas didn’t just affect the state, it also had an impact on the state’s neighbor to the south. Over five million Mexican citizens were without power last week due to natural gas shortages that interrupted Mexico’s providing electricity. From NBCDFW: “Mexico’s government-owned utility, the Federal Electricity Commission, said its operations were… Read More Mexico Backs Off From Renewables, Expands Coal Use
If this wasn’t so unbelievable it would be laughable. From Clean Technica: “Texas to Add 35 Gigawatts of Wind & Solar in Next 3 Years — Boosting Grid Resilience By Zachary Shahan Published 1 day ago Clearly, the news story of the week — well beyond CleanTechnica — has been Texas and some neighboring regions… Read More Texas ERCOT to Boost State Power Grid With … More Renewables!
A new study carried out by Zhengyao Lu, a researcher in Physical Geography at Lund University, and Benjamin Smith, director of research at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment at Western Sydney University. The scientists conclude that large-scale solar and wind farms could result in detrimental effects to the climate world-wide in which the results… Read More Study: Renewable Energy Farms Could Contribute to Climate Change
Despite some parts of Texas having remarkable parallels to the Golden State in terms of rolling blackouts, ironically enough, fossil fuel-powered helicopters will probably be used to de-ice state windmills like was demonstrated in Sweden during 2014. Even electric-powered drones can de-ice windmills too. Also, one other lesser known danger during the winter season associated… Read More Irony: Fossil Fuel-Powered Helicopters De-Ice Windmills and Beware Of “Ice Throw”
With the unfortunate situation in Texas about their power grid shutting down because of the cold, one other dirty little secret of so-called renewables is the cobalt extracted for lithium batteries used, not only for smartphones and computers, but also electric cars and windmills too. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is notorious for having… Read More The Dirty Little Secret About “Green Energy”
