The New York Times trumpeted the high number of people servicing and installing solar panels. The job numbers actually underscore how wasteful, inefficient and unproductive solar power actually is.
April 22 is Earth Day, the March for Science, and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate March. The Climate March website says these forces of “The Resistance” intend to show President Trump they will fight his hated energy agenda every step of the way. Science March organizers say they won’t tolerate anyone who tries to “skew, ignore, misuse or interfere with science.” After eight years of government policies that killed jobs and economic growth – and skewed, ignored, [...]
90,000 homes in Australia experienced major blackouts five times over the last six months. Thousands left in the dark in Belgium and placed on high security after the electric grid went down. Who's next? WATCH NOW
A prototype solar roadway in Idaho was supposed to represent a possible green energy future, but technical issues have exposed just how far off the technology is from prime time.
Storing solar energy in batteries for nighttime use actually increases both energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the study found.
Until Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti nearly a month ago, on October 4, the impoverished island country was out of the headlines—pushed aside by election news. But new emails -- obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the Republican National Committee and then shared with ABC News, then made public on October 11 -- make Haiti part of the U.S. election news, as they highlight the cozy connections between the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, and the Clinton’s cronies. The corruption that has been brought to light is nothing short of scandalous—though, since it’s merely one more such story, few [...]
Draconian energy regulatory policies are being premised upon tax-funded climate alarmism promulgated by government agencies we are supposed to trust. The latest and arguably most dangerous example is the Obama Administration’s proposed “Clean Power Plan” (CPP). CPP enactment is currently subject to a pending District of Columbia Court of Appeals decision following a Supreme Court stay on constitutional challenges. If allowed to proceed, sweeping new EPA rules will effectively nationalize control over all power generation and consumption, thereby usurping authority previously exercised by individual states. Compliance will require state legislatures to pass new laws or regulations to shift energy mixes from [...]
Roughly 25 out of 30 panels installed in a prototype solar road in Idaho broke within a week, after the project received $3.9 million in funding and 6.5 years of development.
India received $500 million in funding for solar panels to ratify the United Nations’ Paris agreement on global warming.
CFACT advisor Marita Noon chronicles the boondoggle that is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's "Buffalo Billion" initiative, which was designed to feature a SolarCity manufacturing plant. But SolarCity stock has tanked, and the company, of which Tesla owner Elon Musk is a major investor, is facing bankruptcy. More "clean energy" that only cleans out our pocketbooks.
Elon Musk’s two major enterprises, Tesla Motors and solar panel provider SolarCity, are facing potentially fatal headwinds, the electric vehicle maker announced in a securities filing Wednesday.
If a country’s goal is to decrease carbon emissions by increasing reliance on renewable energy, it only makes sense to install the new equipment in the location with the best potential—both in geography and government. For Australia, which has a national Renewable Energy Target (RET) of 33,000 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity generated by defined renewable sources by 2020, South Australia (SA) is that place. According to SA Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis, who is also the Energy Minister, the federal government had determined that SA is where “the best conditions for wind farms” could be found. The state government was amenable, [...]
Wealthy anti-fracking zealots created a petition campaign to try to shut down the entire oil and gas industry in Colorado -- but say little about the costs of their extreme proposals.
A report from The New York Times indicates customers with solar panel maker Global Efficient Energy (GEE) claim they were scammed out of nearly $20,000 on promises of major energy savings.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen, noting that both major party candidates for President support local control over fracking, suggests that local control should also extend to wind farms, solar arrays, forest management, and other issues that today are rigged in favor of those who shut down or redirect development by fiat.
