How exactly do they plan to replace fossil fuels?

How exactly do they plan to replace fossil fuels?

  By Paul Driessen Berkeley, CA, Takoma Park, MD and other cities; California, Connecticut, New York, Virginia and other states; Germany, England and other countries; the European Union – all plan to banish oil, natural gas and coal within 10, 20 or 30 years. A number of US states have joined Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiatives […]

Virginia’s ‘Clean Economy Act’ Will Have Dirty Results

Virginia’s ‘Clean Economy Act’ Will Have Dirty Results

  By Paul Driessen Largely with party-line, urban-vs-rural votes, Virginia’s legislature is poised to enact a Clean Economy Act that would eliminate coal-based electricity generation, prevent construction of new gas-fired power plants – and replace reliable, affordable fossil energy with wind, solar and battery-backup power. The bill offers important cautionary lessons for voters, workers and […]

Keeping Africa on the Brink of Starvation

Keeping Africa on the Brink of Starvation

  By Paul Driessen Billions of desert locusts have descended again on East Africa. Crawling first, then sprouting wings and flying in hungry hoards of 40-150 million or more, they are devastating crops and threatening tens of millions of people with lost livelihoods and starvation. This latest locust plague, says the United Nations, is the […]

Deceptive Rhetoric at Davos Could Bring Disaster

Deceptive Rhetoric at Davos Could Bring Disaster

  Paul Driessen The World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland is billed as the globe’s most prestigious annual gathering of movers and shakers. Its mission is to “improve the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.” This year’s theme was […]

Fight fires with facts – not fake science

Fight fires with facts – not fake science

  Paul Driessen & Duggan Flanakin “We are all born ignorant,” Benjamin Franklin once said, “but one must work very hard to remain stupid.” Greens are incensed over suggestions that anything but fossil fuels and climate change might be turning green California and Australian ecosystems into black wastelands, incinerating wildlife, destroying homes and killing people. […]

Reform USAID Energy Aid Policies Now!

Reform USAID Energy Aid Policies Now!

  Paul Driessen and David Wojick Apparently unable to grasp the cruel irony, USAID Commissioner Mark Green boasts that “electricity enables access to refrigeration to store fish, milk and vaccines. Electricity brightens the night and helps school children study. Electricity allows businesses to stay open later and makes communities safer.” Abundant, reliable, affordable electricity absolutely […]

No End in Sight for the Biofuel Wars

No End in Sight for the Biofuel Wars

  Paul Driessen The Big Oil-Big Biofuel wars rage on. From my perch, ethanol, biodiesel and “advanced biofuels” make about zero energy, economic or environmental sense. They make little political sense either, until you recognize that politics is largely driven by crony-capitalism, campaign contributions and vote hustling. Even now, once again, as you read this, […]

Activist Junk Science Breeds Bad Policy

Activist Junk Science Breeds Bad Policy

  By Paul Driessen The House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources recently approved HR 2854, the 2019 Protect Our Refuges Act, prohibiting the use of neonicotinoid insecticides in any of the nation’s 560 National Wildlife Refuges, some of which are the size of Delaware and even Indiana. The legislation will now be considered by […]

No Plan B for Planet A

No Plan B for Planet A

  Paul Driessen Environmentalists and Green New Deal proponents like to say we must take care of the Earth, because “There is no Planet B.” Above all, they insist, we must eliminate fossil fuels, which they say are causing climate change worse than the all-natural ice ages, Medieval Warm Period or anything else in history. […]

The Giga and Terra Scam of Offshore Wind Energy

The Giga and Terra Scam of Offshore Wind Energy

  By Paul Driessen Can anti-fossil fuel policies based on climate crisis alarmism possibly get any more insane than this? In what might be described as a pre-Halloween trick of ginormous proportions, the International Energy Agency (IEA) now asserts that “renewable, sustainable” energy output will explode over the next two decades. Certainly for onshore wind […]
