Fossil fuels expert Alex Epstein shares everything you need to know about fossil fuels and what the world would really look like if we were “net zero” by 2050.
“Green energy” has 2 problems: 1) It’s not really energy: It doesn’t provide reliable energy. 2) It’s not really green: It has a huge “environmental impact.”
Lawmakers and their constituents don’t need to be climate scientists to understand why.
America can stop the decline of our grid and move toward low-cost, reliable, and cleaner electricity by ending all preferences for unreliable electricity.
In Fossil Future, Alex Epstein refutes literally hundreds of myths about fossil fuels. Here are 20 myths that 11,000,000 people heard on Joe Rogan’s podcast this year, refuted.
Instead of protecting our oil security by protecting oil industry freedom and backing it up with an ample reserve, President Biden has doubly damaged it by first attacking the oil industry’s freedom, then dangerously depleting our reserve for political purposes.
A carbon tax would raise energy prices, make every American industry less competitive, and offshore our CO2 emissions to the countries that outcompete us.
Anti-fossil-fuel politicians, like Rep. Cori Bush, tried to discredit Alex Epstein’s Congressional testimony on energy security using 100% false personal attacks. They failed, and all such future attempts will fail.
Compelling evidence of a better way to manage climate change.
Increasing taxes on oil company profits will just discourage investment in new production and raise prices higher, hurting American consumers even more.
America’s reckless green energy policies evaluated.
The oil shortage was “manufactured” by the government, through price controls, not by the oil companies and their perfectly natural and praiseworthy desire to earn profits.
Biden is continuing with his anti-oil and gas policies that he began on his first day in office.
Gasoline prices in California are at record highs and more than $2.50 a gallon higher than the national average.
The Biden administration is worried that OPEC+’s action will be a detriment to Democrats during the mid-term election and is likely to counter with more SPR releases, putting the United States in severe jeopardy of a national emergency with the Strategic Petroleum Reserve so decimated.
California Does Not Have Enough Power to Deal with Its Heat Wave, How Will It Meet Its New Rules for Electric Vehicles?
California is having trouble keeping the lights on during the upcoming heat wave. So, it is unclear how the state intends to find reliable electricity to fuel the massive numbers of electric vehicles being forced on California’s new vehicle sales.
The fact that Western Europe decided to rely on solar and wind power and Russia to supply natural gas, rather than producing their own is causing severe economic pain that is expected to last several winters.
For much of human history, the ability to do work was limited by human and animal muscle.
The Inflation Reduction Act is now the climate and tax bill because politicians no longer can claim that it reduces inflation.
While the wealthy G7 countries admonish the world’s poor to use only renewables because of climate concerns, Europe and the United States are begging Arab nations to expand oil production.
It’s great to see the White House recognize that increased oil production leads to lower prices. Their math, shows that increased domestic oil production has saved $2 trillion since 2008 and currently about $2 a gallon at the pump.
Senator Joe Manchin, in a 180-degree about-face, agreed on a slimmed-down version of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill that will increase corporate taxes; provide tax credits, grants and incentives to politically correct “clean” energy technologies such as wind, solar and electric vehicles; and seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, among other Green New Deal and climate initiatives.
The demands that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is placing on pipeline developers is significant and with no timeline, the uncertainty created is delaying new projects that are needed for both export and domestic purposes at a time when the administration is using every tool in its “whole of government” approach to make domestic energy harder to finance, produce, transport and consume.
After thwarting the oil industry by banning pipelines and new oil and gas leases after his inauguration, Biden’s recent proposals are watered-down varieties of the failed policies that created the multiple gas crises that rocked the nation in the 1970s.
