Going carbon-free will be difficult without the U.S.’s largest source of carbon-free electricity: nuclear energy.
Electric vehicle batteries, solar panels, and wind turbines result in a massive amount of waste and pollution.
Germany’s similar experiment with an energy transition has been going on much longer than the time period under President Biden’s proposal, and that has led to skyrocketing electricity prices for residential users equal to three times what Americans pay.

The rhetoric for a “climate change catastrophe” has been around for decades. When warming didn’t happen, the rhetoric changed to threats of freezing, which morphed back to warming.
Climate change is real. It’s a problem, but I doubt that it’s “an existential threat.” Saying that makes alarmists mad.
Bjorn Lomborg’s “False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet”
Bjorn Lomborg’s “False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet” is a true alarm—a call for a re-thinking of climate policy entirely.
Without competition among experts, we can expect more expert failure in the future.
For years, people like Naomi Klein, the author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, have said that their goal is to destroy capitalism ‒ and climate change just happens to be the best tool and best argument she has found.
Ending the lockdowns is not a wild or radical theory; it is just calling for a return to the way pandemics were managed in the past. To ditch this cruel experiment with society and return to what works.
Early this week, three of the world’s top epidemiologists published the Great Barrington Declaration. that argues that societies across the globe should reopen immediately and completely.
The Canadian government’s net-zero 2050 plan has been aptly criticized for not being feasible because it ignores reality: the lack of necessary technology and the increasing demand for affordable and reliable energy in developing countries around the world.
For years, they and environmentalists increased the risk of big fires by opposing the thinning of forests. Megafires could have been avoided if forests had just been better managed.
Cheap One Dollar 15 Minute Result COVID-19 Tests Can End The Need for National Lockdowns Permanently
One dollar, 15-minute result home and work COVID-19 antigen screening tests, are available and will end the need for lockdowns. The problem is that government bureaucrats will not allow companies to sell them to the general public.
Three Books on Solving The Climate Crisis: False Alarm, Apocalypse Never and Green Market Revolution
Joakim Book contrasts and compares Bjorn Lomborg’s “False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet”, Michael Shellenberger’s “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All”, and Christopher Barnard and Kai Weiss’ edited book “Green Market Revolution: How Market Environmentalism Can Protect Nature and Save the World.”
Without fossil fuels, much of the world would freeze in the dark. We just don’t yet have enough alternatives.
For-profit competition brings us the best things in life.
“Follow the science. Listen to the experts. Do what they tell you,” said Joe Biden, laughing at what he considered an obvious truth.
The environmentalists had a field day during the corona pandemic. The anti-human policies they have called for, protested for, disrupted societies and other people’s lives for, were suddenly implemented en masse, albeit on a temporary basis. Think of it as a trial for green policies.
It’s a curious fact that most of us know way more about sports and pop culture, than about the pioneers of scientific research. But the benefits we’ve all reaped from their work is incalculable, and it’s clear that our way out of this global pandemic will depend crucially on scientists working to understand, track, and combat the novel coronavirus.
We adults should be allowed to make our own decisions about what we do with our own bodies.
The Modern Warm Period from the late-19th to the early 21st centuries, is only trivially man-made and not pernicious, but rather, is overwhelmingly natural and fully benign.
Pandemic or not, the dream of abandoning fossil fuels is just a dream—a suicidal one
The last time government sought a “warp speed” vaccine, dead and paralyzed vaccine recipients were the tragic consequences.
Politicians “looking for something to do” like banning plastic bags routinely do more harm than good.
