WND Exclusive – Batteries can’t do the Job Greenies Think

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

It seems that one of the major objectives of the Biden administration, and I guess all Democratic politicians, is to dismantle everything that built this nation and made it great, and of course to spend us into oblivion without acknowledging any consequence for their actions.

The one warped initiative that may end up being the most painful is the push to shut off the energy spigot and somehow replace it with fairy dust and unicorn farts.

Yes, I’m talking about the fantasy that green “renewable” energy can replace our current, efficient and abundant fuel sources like coal, oil and gas – and, of course, our cleanest and greenest source of energy, nuclear, which the left will barely acknowledge. read more

Covid to Climate – A Seamless Transfer of Crisis

by: Brent Smith

Like the seamless transfer of Power, so shall there be a seamless transfer of crisis.

I recently had a rather enlightening discussion with a neighbor regarding Covid lockdowns and mask-ups.

She said, “If I have to wear a mask to keep others safe, I’ll do it. It’s a small price to pay.” I then asked how long she would be willing to do this. Her answer: “For as long as it takes. It’s not a big deal.”

She knows I disagree. She knows I don’t wear a mask, but thinks I do so out of some rebel-without-a-cause mentality.

I explained that she is looking at this issue more through a micro-lens, while I instead am just trying to see the big picture. read more

Video Podcast – No More Global Warming – Coming to a Stratosphere Near You – Gas Prices

This hasn’t gotten a lot of press. It’s about Bill Gates. No, not concerning vaccines and control of population growth.

Gates, like other insanely wealthy people, is bored. So he/they, like we all do, feel he needs a purpose. His purpose is saving the planet … from us … the little people.

So Gates has teamed up with Harvard University, of course, to save the world from Climate Change – global warming.

Here’s the plan. The plan is to release reflective particles into our atmosphere to reflect the sun’s warming rays and voila – cool the planet.

BRILLIANT! read more

Biden Begins with Massive Job Loss

by: Brent Smith

Boy was I wrong. I was speaking to some friends just yesterday that I had heard the Bidden executive order cancelling the XL Pipeline project would put 11,000 people out of work.

Everyone was shocked by this. They couldn’t believe that a mere stroke of the president’s pen could wield such power as to just erase 11,000 jobs, just like that. And worse, it’s not that there was no remorse or regret over the decision kill that many jobs. It was the exact opposite. read more

An Honest Environmentalist Speaks Out

from the Daily Wire:

SHELLENBERGER: On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (L) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hold a news conference to introduce legislation to transform public housing as part of their Green New Deal proposal outside the U.S. Capitol November 14, 2019 in Washington, DC. The liberal legislators invited affordable housing advocates and climate change activists to join them for the announcement. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public. read more

Green Activists Never Take a Break

Not even during a pandemic, do the enviro-weenies take a break. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing their dream of 100% emission free energy. And after they’ve achieved that, they can purchase the bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale.

from the American Thinker:

Clean Energy Via Legislative Diktat

For those enamored by the clean electric-car, smoke-and-mirrors “emission elsewhere scheme” comes the recently enacted “Virginia Clean Economy Act”, which includes one of the largest energy storage targets in the country at 2.4 GW by 2035, and prompts state regulators to craft a carbon dioxide cap and trade program that meets the objectives of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). read more

Flatten the Carbon Curve

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Just when Americans are beginning to see a sliver of light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel – just as some businesses are coming back online and the authoritarian Governors can see a bit of power and control slipping away, an old stalwart crisis is waiting in the wings. But there’s a refreshing new take on this aging crisis.

I’m talking about one of the left’s go-to crises.

No, it’s not racism. It’s not social justice. It’s not gender inequality, or income inequality. Sorry – I forgot how many go-to crises the left has.

No, I’m talking about Climate Change.

But how do you make such a tired old crisis like Climate Change seem new? I mean, it’s been around for several decades now. There’s nothing new about it. The “experts” haven’t discovered anything new or Earth shattering. The climate is just chugging along as it always has. It cools off and warms up at relatively regular intervals, just as it has for centuries. read more

Senate GOP Still Hearts the Green Agenda

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill

While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.

It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration. read more

Trump Can Withhold Sanctuary City Funds

from the Washington Free Beacon:

In Victory For Trump, Appeals Court Says Feds Can Withhold Grants From Sanctuary Cities

Ruling could tee up Supreme Court battle

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration can withhold federal funds from sanctuary jurisdictions for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities in a decision that will likely trigger a Supreme Court review.

A number of cities have challenged the Justice Department policy that would withhold federal law enforcement grants from cities that refuse to cooperate with illegal immigration enforcement. The Second Circuit ruled against New York City’s challenge to the policy, but three other appeals courts have upheld injunctions that required the Trump administration to disperse the contested funds. The split between the circuit courts increases the likelihood that the issue will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court, as justices generally take cases featuring questions over which multiple courts disagree. read more
