Green Energy Really Is a Ponzi Scheme

The Clinton Foundation’s endorsement of a green energy company is illustrative of the entire industry. Some stories are just perfect. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, this is one of them: “Green Energy Execs Praised by Clinton Foundation Indicted for $54M Ponzi Scheme.” Executives of a Pennsylvania green energy company singled out for praise by Bill Clinton were arrested on fraud charges on Thursday in connection with an alleged Ponzi scheme. The individuals are facing charges Read more […]

Barack Obama Orders Energy Companies, Conservatives to Fall in Line

All energy companies should bow to his immense wisdom about the entire future of the global environment and economy. Having just suggested that Obama may be deliberately antagonizing conservatives by sounding completely arrogant, let me now hasten to add that there is no doubt that the President is the incarnation of arrogance and self-worship. How else could a man with his track record demand submission from energy companies and conservatives? How could he not realize how stupid he sounds? Yet Read more […]

Australia Prefers Lower Energy Prices to Global Warming Alarmism

The Australian government is cutting back on “clean energy” mandates to lower energy prices for voters. While a court sided with nine hundred Dutch believers in global warming and imposed economic hardship on the entire Netherlands that won’t, if global warming were a real threat, stop the environmental damage, Australia is going in a different direction in order to escape economic hardship for the majority of residents. They are reducing their mandates for using “clean energy.” Sky Read more […]

Crispy or Original Recipe? Solar Power Test Fries Birds in Flight

Every time I think about “green energy,” a little voice in my head that sounds like Katharine McPhee starts singing “Over the Rainbow.” (Sorry, Judy Garland fans, but this is the 21st century, and Kat’s got it all over the erstwhile Dorothy Gale.) It’s not that I’m seeing Munchkins, but the wistful, dreamy, pie-in-the-sky yearning expressed in the song seems to me to capture the whole alternative energy movement. Whether it’s corn-powered cars, high-tech windmills or solar panels, the stuff Read more […]

Surprise! Another Green Energy Hurts the Environment

A green energy source is finally being held accountable for killing endangered animals. We have already posted more than once about how Ethanol is an energy and environmental disaster. But the most recent news about a “green” energy source comes from the Obama Administration itself. They are admitting that the energy they have encouraged is problematic because they are prosecuting energy companies for alleged crimes. In this case, the energy source is wind farms. The Daily Caller reports, Read more […]

Green Energy Still Far Off

The official version of reality is that we are running out of what we know as fossil fuels. So gas and coal are going to become more expensive so that it becomes worthwhile to get our energy from other sources, like wind and solar. So all one needs to do is stop investing in oil and start investing in alternative energy. In the case of automobiles, it is time to ramp up production electric cars or at least hybrids because someday gas will be unaffordable. There is, however, a problem with this Read more […]

Europe Learns that Green Energy is an Economic Drain

I have noted before that “green energy” in Barack Obama’s agenda, is stretched enough to include natural gas from fracking. This was a smart move because fracking–mining natural gas–is an industry that has developed on its own, stimulated by nothing more than the chance to make a profit. No one started bringing natural gas to the energy market in order to save the environment. They did it because they knew it was valuable and that customers would pay money for it. Most or all other “green Read more […]

German Government Report Says To Kill Green Subsidies

Too bad the NSA won’t listen to this. The Feds could learn some wisdom from Germany on this issue. The boom days are over for Europe, and more crises are on the horizon. What happens when booms go bust is that people realize that the money is going to be difficult to get and to keep. The projects you once thought were worth the cost suddenly look deeply stupid as an item on your shrinking budget. So as Germany faces a tightening economy, the German government starts to become more sensible. Read more […]

“This Is Not A Program To Kill Eagles.” White House Gives Wind Farms License To Kill

AP reports: The Obama administration said Friday it will allow some companies to kill or injure bald and golden eagles for up to 30 years without penalty, an effort to spur development and investment in green energy while balancing its environmental consequences. The change, requested by the wind energy industry, will provide legal protection for the lifespan of wind farms and other projects for which companies obtain a permit and make efforts to avoid killing the birds. An investigation by The Read more […]

Court Deals Blow to EPA and Obama’s Green Energy Program

When Barack Obama ran for office in 2008, he promised to create 5 million green jobs.  One of his main programs to help create some of those green jobs was his biofuels programs.  Using the iron fist of the EPA, Obama did his best force refiners to produce cellulosic biofuels. The standards set were completely unrealistic and unattainable.  They were purposely overestimated to avoid the possibility of underestimation.  It was a deliberate act to push the green fuel technology onto the oil Read more […]

Is Obama addicted to his own and our destruction?

Supposedly we are “addicted” to fossil fuels. But the real addiction is the “green energy” insanity. Solyndra was a disaster for the Obama Administration—or would have been if a Republican Administration had been caught giving money to donors on the basis of a doomed business model. Green cronyism is somehow OK with liberals. At least Obama was using a Leftist cause to waste public money for his own benefit. But now Obama is doing it all again. A tiny solar company named SoloPower Read more […]
