Study: Renewable Energy Farms Could Contribute to Climate Change

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

Irony: Fossil Fuel-Powered Helicopters De-Ice Windmills and Beware Of “Ice Throw”

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”

The Dirty Little Secret About “Green Energy”

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”

The Immorality of “Net Metering”

With all of the hype surrounding people choosing to use solar power, Institute for Energy Research Policy Analyst Paige Lambermont explains what net metering is and how it contributes to undermining the nation’s power grid, including nuclear power.

Golden State Energy “Experts” Shocked About Rolling Blackouts

After three power plants were closed (as a result of the insistence of environmentalists) and wind power production sagged, the result is rolling blackouts. Golden State voters have an opportunity every four years to vote out the politicians who implement these terrible… Read More Golden State Energy “Experts” Shocked About Rolling Blackouts
