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.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) released video footage showing how the intense heat generated by the Ivanpah solar plant incinerates thousands of birds and bats.
Climate alarmists cannot separate human influences from natural causes for any recent changes. They do not know how much Earth will warm by 2100. They cannot say at what point further warming will be “dangerous” – or for which plant, wildlife, or human populations. They admit that slashing America’s fossil fuel use will reduce global warming by only a few hundredths of one degree (assuming CO2 drives climate change), especially if most countries continue burning coal, oil and natural gas.
Theme park to convert Pine Barrens into solar desert.
Cambridge University electrical engineering professor Dr. M.J. Kelly concluded in a peer-reviewed journal article that attempts to fight global warming with green energy will impoverish the world.
The bloom should be off the rose that is the premise that Tom Steyer is a saint for promoting green energy -- when in reality he is behind a major scheme in which financiers "qualify" homeowners to install solar panels, with the solar credits (taxpayer dollars) accruing not to the individual but to the financiers (Steyer and his cronies). They are going to make billions -- all for a small investment in fear and hope.
