Michigan officials are changing the way solar panel owners are paid for the energy they put back into the grid, joining a growing chorus of states that are recognizing the expensive costs of subsiding solar energy.
Concerns over impacts from energy projects disappear where “green” energy is involved.
Even committed Green Disciples with a huge Tesla battery in their garage soon found that their battery was flat and that there was no solar energy to recharge it.
“The country’s climate obsession has turned into one of the country’s biggest political and economic handicaps, making Germany almost ungovernable.”
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen, a Virginia resident, laments the direction that newly elected Governor Ralph Northam is taking the people of the state -- into restrictions on carbon dioxide that include cap-and-trade emissions buying and selling -- and other foolish schemes that will harm the poor and lower middle classes the most and do little or nothing to change the Earth's climate.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen lauds President Trump and his administration for rolling back Obama era restrictions on fossil fuels that had already hurt the U.S. economy -- the rollbacks should unleash massive economic growth and create lots of jobs.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen exposes the shame of the city leaders in St. Louis, Missouri, who have sought to deflect from the city's poor reputation for violent crime, high school graduation rates, and overall quality of life by declaring the city MUST transform its power base from 1.5% wind and solar today to 100% wind and solar within the next 18 years. The staggering cost of such a transformation, assuming it can even be done, will be borne by the very people who suffer from high crime, low-performance education, and a sense of hopelessness in the face of arrogant posturing.
The tax plan would modify production and investment tax credits for green energy projects, including wind turbines and solar panels, and push for eliminating subsidies for purchasing electric cars.
West Virginia University professor James E. Smith and graduate student Alex Hatch report that the United States economy has begun to grow steadily despite falling oil consumption. Moreover, worldwide energy demand dropped significantly between 2013 and 2015 and the trend is continuing despite growing world populations and expanding energy availability. They note that , worldwide (not just in today's rich countries), the only thing limiting our future progress and comity is our imagination and ingenuity.
Wind and solar are in the subsidy business, not the electricity business.
SolarCity, a subdivision of electric vehicle maker Tesla, agreed to pay $29.5 million to resolve allegations the company submitted inflated claims to cash in on a solar stimulus program.
Croplands, habitats, taxes, family budgets, safety sacrificed to enrich a politically connected few?
What if wind, solar and electric vehicles operated in a fair market?
“At a certain point—and California seems to have reached it already—new solar PV does nothing to satisfy new peak net demand.”
Must life in the future be "poor, nasty, brutish and short?"
