A battery package for a medium size electrical vehicle costs more than $13,000 – equivalent to the material cost of an entire gas-fueled compact car – and they can require 8 hours to recharge. Then there's the subsidies.
This 2019 new year of political climate change now finds green energy lobbies lining up to extract more subsidy gratitude from an indebted Democrat House majority.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, four of the world’s ten largest market cap corporations are Silicon Valley companies and two of the remaining ten largest are Chinese information tech companies. How does that power impact civil liberties?
The draft EPA rule still seeks to curb CO2 emissions, but provides states with essential flexibility to balance this requirement with meeting their energy. As before, power plant emissions are still estimated to fall 33 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, but do so without imposing the high CPP costs.
Many research results published in scientific journals shouldn’t be trusted.
Climate nonsense once again is hurting real people -- Texans may face power shortages this summer, and it is all the fault of Obama's war on coal. CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell notes that it would have been a lot worse had the Trump Administration and the courts not sidelined the jobs-killing Clean Power Plan.
Five and one-half decades have now passed since a young President John F. Kennedy rallied a nation behind a bold challenge to send an American to the Moon and safely back before the end of that decade. We did this, and even better — putting four of our citizens on the lunar surface and returning them by 1969, plus delivered two more into lunar orbit who returned with them. Within three more years, eight others had walked on the Moon on successful round-trip voyages, along with four more orbital companions. An invitation to write an article about the Apollo legacy for [...]
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reports that the ongoing decrease in sunspot activity portends lower global temperatures -- demonstrating again that carbon dioxide is not the primary driver of climate change.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell lauds the first steps taken by the Trump Administration to restore NASA to its primary mission -- and encourages that the agency needs to press on with a mission to Mars.
CFACT advisor Larry Bell shares colossal information about the universe that has been uncovered by astronomers -- notably, that the collision of two neutron stars also released visible light which was observed by Earth-based telescopes, and that instruments in two different states first detected a gravity wave emanating from the collision of two gigantic black holes.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reveals the depths to which top bureaucrats at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fudged data so they could falsely report that carbon dioxide emissions were causing massive acidification of the Earth's oceans and that ocean temperatures had warmed twice as much as honest data showed.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reports on the disastrous mismanagement of America's Western forests by federal officials and the tremendous cost in human and plant and animal life and quality of life these policies have fostered. As Rep. Tom McClintock says, "These laws have not only failed to improve our forest environment, but they are literally killing our forests."
CFACT policy analyst Larry Bell reports that President Trump's EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has dealt a death blow to the scurrilous practice of the EPA colluding with interest groups to alter public policy through staged litigation that denies opponents of their punitive schemes no opportunity for their own day in court.
Can the heavily politicized Goddard Institute for Space Studies be reformed?
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell refutes the claims of alarmist activists that hurricanes Harvey and Irma were "enhanced" as a result of climate change -- and shows that the same alarmists had made the same statements in prior years regarding prior hurricanes -- and then there was a 12-year lull.
