Germany Energy Taxes to Go Green with Energiewende Lead It to Go Bust

germanygermany energy


[Editor’s Note: Germany energy solutions now being pursued by Biden, California, New York, New Jersey, et al have proven to be disasters on every level.]

Germany’s scathing audit report on renewable energy makes readers aware that its Energiewende—the mandated transition to renewable energy—was and continues to be expensive, making the country’s residential electricity prices the highest in Europe and costing the country billions in future network costs, as well as exposing the country to energy supply shortfalls that puts it at a risk for blackouts.

Germany has been held up as an example to the world for their “energy transition,” but as it turns out, their experience has created chaos for producers and consumers, while threatening the German economy. President Biden now has another data point to examine in his proposal to transition to net zero electricity since it appears that he has not learned much from the California and Texas debacles.

Wind and Solar Are Intermittent and Incapable of Meeting Our Needs

Author, Engineer and Founder of PTS Advance

[Editor’s Note: Wind and solar may address demands for green virtue signaling opportunities but can’t truly meet the needs natural gas is able to satisfy.]

Before world leaders move too fast to consummate their climate policies, they need to be cognizant of two “aha” moments: 1) wind and solar can only generate intermittent electricity, and 2) electricity cannot manufacture the oil derivatives that are the basis of the thousands of products that have built the world’s cities, countries, and economies over the last 200 years.

Can you imagine primitive man with an abundance of wind and solar electricity and nothing to power! Imagine living with Just GREEN Electricity.

[Editor’s Note: The PJM grid is at great risk. It is threatened by the green virtue signaling of politicians such as Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf.]

With Green New Dealers running Washington, D.C., and Gov. Tom Wolf pushing so-called green energy from Harrisburg, questions must be asked about the development of Pennsylvania’s electric transmission system and the impact on the PJM grid.

Net Zero Is Just Trash Talk to An India Seeking to Lift Up Its Citizenry

Duggan Flanakin
Director of Policy Research, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

[Editor’s Note: The government of India refuses to kowtow to Western elitists trying to impose net zero carbon policies on a nation needing development.]

India is just one of an increasing number of “developing” nation which have recognized that the mad rush toward a “net zero carbon” economy does not serve the interests of their ordinary citizens. These countries are also waking up to the fact that serving the public interest necessitates major increases in abundant, affordable, reliable, mostly fossil fuel electricity to power their burgeoning economies.

Global Warming Advocates Lose Minds Over Inconvenient Facts

..

….

Some Norwegian advocates of global warming theories have gone completely gal (Norsk for “crazy”) over some very “Inconvenient Facts.”

Other than by misspelling “fjord,” how would an American geologist draw the ire of a pair of Norwegian politicians?  Answer: Write a book that counters the notion that human activity is causing the globe to warm with catastrophic consequences.

CLEAN Future Act Is All About Funding Perks for the Prosperous


[Editor’s Note: The CLEAN Future Act is yet more green eggs and scam designed to benefit the prosperous with EV perks at the expense of taxpayers.]

In early March, the House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko (D-NY) and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL) introduced the Climate Leadership and Environmental Action for our Nation’s (CLEAN) Future Act. The bill aims to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with an interim target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent from 2005 levels no later than 2030.

EPA Races to Put Auto Racing and States in Permanent Pit Stops

Duggan Flanakin
Director of Policy Research, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

[Editor’s Note: Duggan Flanakin is on to the EPA and its games of controlling the population, limiting their fun and what it sees as subservient states.]

Biden-Harris Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan is clearly on a mission. He has “bold aspirations, and a long to-do list,” says The Washington Post. But to succeed, the Post acknowledges, he must “help the EPA get its groove back.” As Reagan put it, “We’ve got a lot of work to do, starting with rebuilding staff morale and getting all our staff back to feeling as if they matter, their voices matter.”

Regan says his job is “to restore the scientific integrity and the utilization of data, of facts, as we move forward, and make some very important decisions.” His second goal is to increase “cooperation” between the EPA and its “subordinate” state environmental agencies. EPA will dictate; states will fall in line.

Offshore Wind Is Off the Charts Political Nonsense

WeSo, global G ..renewable energy.


[Editor’s Note: Offshore wind makes no economic or environmental sense whatsoever. It is pure politics intended merely to reward special interests.]

The Biden administration has announced plans to vastly expand the use of offshore wind power along the U.S. East Coast. The plan sets a goal of deploying 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind turbines in coastal waters nationwide by 2030. President Biden will accelerate permitting of wind projects off the Atlantic Coast (perhaps by shortening required scientific studies) and open up waters near New York and New Jersey for wind development. The administration also plans to offer $3 billion in federal loan guarantees for offshore wind projects and invest in upgrading the nation’s ports to support wind construction.
