Blade waste, other factors prove wind is no more green than solar Duggan Flanakin
Environmentalists and wind energy opportunists (entrepreneurs who take advantage of overly generous tax credits and multiple other subsidies) want

you to believe wind energy is as pure “green” as newly driven snow is white, Eand as cheap as Taco Bell.
They never tell you about the costs – or the environmental destruction – that they have hidden from you for decades. But neither do most governments, news media or social media.

Ars Technica science editor John Timmer says wind hardware prices are dropping, even as new turbine designs are increasing the typical power generated by each turbine. Timmer did admit that “wind is even cheaper at Continue reading “Wind turbines generate mountains of waste”
On Sunday, August 16th the National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada sent out a
Tweet highlighting a new maximum daily temperature of 130°F in Death Valley:
Predictably, the media jumped on this number with the
Los Angeles Times saying “ …possibly the highest mercury reading on Earth since 1913“. Even the Continue reading “Media hypes new 130°F Death Valley Temperature – but it’s still short of the 134°F all-time record”

Criticism of wind turbines is nothing new, but this latest rebellion is raising a host of issues and halting developments. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)
This time, “rolling blackouts” are due to green energy issues, not Enron market manipulation.
Remember when California imposed rolling blackouts in 2000 and 2001? This occurred when California had a shortage of electricity supply caused by electricity market manipulations. A demand-supply gap was created, mainly by
Enron, to create an artificial shortage so speculators could benefit from an 800 percent increase in Continue reading “Thanks to Green Energy Mandates, California’s Electric Grid Is Near Collapse”

It is a refreshingly honest presentation by Michael Shellenberger, an environmentalist who once accepted and actively promoted the idea that catastrophic anthropogenic global warming was occurring. After critically examining the AGW hypothesis, he has concluded that it is not supported by the facts, and consequently is apologizing for having participated in this misinformation campaign. Ed.]

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate

Scientists enjoy learning new facts about the physical world. They have been respected largely because some of their discoveries have led to
