“Keep it in the ground” at work in the real world

The Luddites are loose! It was not enough for them to waste billions of tax dollars on unsustainable wind and solar projects, but now they want to shut down the only safe, secure, 24/7 sources of energy in the U.S. -- oil, natural gas, and coal (and, yes, nuclear power too). The new Stone(d) Age awaits those who empower these de-development radicals who have enjoyed the fruits of innovative technology unleashed by a capitalist society but now want to deprive future generations (and those currently living as well) of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Marita Noon: How to win the war on fossil fuels

Simply put, it is time to get to work to defeat the enemies of freedom and prosperity who are running the show in Washington, DC. The anti-energy crowd is fighting hard to shut down all coal, oil, and natural gas operations in the U.S. (and worldwide), but that will harm people and the environment. Armed with the facts and common sense, there is work to be done to spread the message.

Killing coal: The Obama Administration’s intentional assault on an industry

President Obama and his billionaire friends (who will profit financially from killing coal, though no one in the media will acknowledge this) are hell bent on killing the coal industry (and likely the oil and gas industry right after). There is no apology to the hundreds of thousands of people being thrown out of work or to the millions who will pay much higher fuel bills, maybe even go heatless, as a result of these elitist, cruel acts.

With the Paris climate conference complete, what comes next, what will it cost you, and what can you do about it?

If the “keep it in the ground” movement is successful, government services—including education, first responders, and hospitals and healthcare—must be cut, taxes on everything must go up, and electricity rates will “necessarily skyrocket.” Western civilization is based on successful mining and farming—which the antis want to block.

On climate change, Catholic leaders must believe in miracles

While Catholic leaders, led by Pope Francis, are focused on curbing global warming (aka curbing the use of fossil fuels) as the most urgent means of combating poverty, the facts are that cheap, reliable energy and access to jobs and markets is what the poor need most. And, not surprisingly, the poor know it -- ranking "climate change" the LEAST important concern in their lives, with food and education at the top.

Beyond the bickering, bill lifting oil-export ban wins bipartisan support

A glimmer of hope emerged in the night sky as 26 Democrats joined with the Republican majority in the U.S. House to approve a bill ending the decades-old oil export ban. But the dark lords of correctness and fears of reprisals remain strong, and few and far between are the bopartisan votes in this Congress.

Windmills and sunbeams won’t keep the lights on

CFACT advisor Larry Bell explains that wind and solar are intermittent sources of energy that, unlike the 24/7 reliability of fossil fuels, nuclear energy, and even for the most part hydroelectric, tend to be at their peak during low-demand periods and at their low ebb during high demand. The result of shutting down existing power plants for these not-so-green alternatives will surely be blackouts and brownouts -- plus higher energy prices and a lower standard of living.

Governors, billionaires secretly promote Obama’s crippling energy agenda

Most of us feel that time goes by faster as we get older. It does. When you are 5 years old, one year represents 20% of your life. Yet, when you are 50, that same calendar year is only 2% of your life—making that single timeframe much smaller. Those of us involved in fighting the bad energy policies coming out of Washington have a similar feeling: The second term of the Obama Administration seems to be throwing much more at us and at such speed that we can barely keep up. Likewise, they are. We knew that President Obama was planning [...]

The EPA’s green attack on red states

The final Clean Power Plan rule actually allows California to INCREASE its carbon dioxide emissions, while forcing Kentucky and other states to cut theirs by over 40%. Some have called the Obama plan an attack on coal -- others wisely see it as a power play to crush anyone who dares oppose the elitist central government. The answers may lie within the federal court system -- or direct confrontations with Washington.

Singing in the new revolution

Opposition to the excesses of the Obama EPA and other related agencies is mounting -- unions are seeing jobs die; landowners do not like trumped up "endangered species" habitat designations rob them of economically productive land, and ordinary citizens are recoiling from the higher costs for unreliable renewable energy.

The EPA myth of “Clean Power”

The Environmental Protection Agency, following the lead of the Obama Administration, has promulgated rules designed to shut down America's coal industry and force the U.S. economy to rely on unsustainable wind and solar energy for future power generation. Americans in the know realize this course of action will lead to energy shortages, brownouts and blackouts, higher energy prices, and more. Lawsuits seeking to curtail the EPA's power are pending in federal court -- and the plaintiffs point out that the EPA is violating its own rules and federal law in its quest for power.

Energy security must include reliable power

Americans need to prepare for energy poverty unless the Obama - EPA juggernaut can be derailed and the so-called Clean Power Plan can be blocked or repealed. The courts in the past have ruled that the EPA overreached -- and surely that is what is happening here, but the people cannot rely solely on the courts (which soon could be controlled by radical leftists) and so need to rise up themselves and turn this underpowered train around.
