Tucker Carlson Tonight – Fox News Channel – February 15, 2021

Rough Transcript excerpts:

Tucker Carlson: We’re going to talk to Marc Morano, he’s the publisher of Climate Depot and author of the upcoming book “Green fraud.” He joins us tonight. Mark you saw what happened in texas overnight millions left without power people died and it seems pretty clear that a reckless reliance on windmills is the cause of this disaster is that is that right do you think?

Marc Morano: “That is absolutely right. All you have to do is look at the last four decades when it comes to wind power. It is chiefly driven by government policy and subsidies to the point where Warren Buffett famously said years ago that there’s no reason to build windmills without the tax breaks and without the subsidies. So what’s happened is three to four percent of our energy comes from solar and wind combined and what the Green New Deal is going to try to do is somehow make us zero carbon within the next decade and a half within two decades, depending on which plan you’re looking at. And we’re seeing the results of this and the same thing’s happening in Germany by the way right now Tucker. Their solar panels are covered in snow and Germans are freezing through winter much the way Texans are and who would have thought this would have happened in Texas but
this is what we’re dealing with. And Biden now wants to nationalize this plan of the less than four percent that comes from solar and wind and make it our chief go-to energy
source.

Morano: The biggest fraud of the Green New Deal that is the green fraud we have in the last few years gone from not just energy independent in the united states energy dominant the world’s largest producer of natural gas of oil and we went since the first time since 1952 when Harry S Truman was president in 1952.

“We went more energy exports than imports and then also in 2019 we had more energy production than uh more energy production than usage which means that was Dwight Eisenhower was president these were unprecedented numbers and if you like to say it was an all-of-the-above energy strategy but those kinds of numbers mean we don’t have to rely on foreign sources of energy. If you’re worried about endless wars and climate activists like Robert F. Kennedy Jr say it openly most of America’s wars have in one way or
another have been fights over energy and he’s of course referring to the middle eastern wars chiefly. Well we were in a position where we weren’t just independent we were dominant we had our own domestic energy so the Green New Deal is going to swap that for reliance on solar and wind an electric car by the way which is going to be rare earth minerals from china 90% of which dominates it things like cobalt copper, nickel. And we’re going to now be reliant on China for these rare earth minerals to make these unreliable solar panels and wind turbines and electric car batteries.

So the Green New Deal is lose, lose, lose all the way we’re seeing it unfold in Texas we’ve seen it unfold in California.

Tucker Carlon: Civilization exists because of energy. Marc. I appreciate coming on.

Analysis: Biden’s energy restricting climate policies are a national security threat — not climate change

Half of Texas Wind Turbines Freeze, Hurting Electricity Output

Tucker Carlson: The great Texas climate catastrophe is heading your way – Green energy means a less reliable power grid. Why do our leaders deny that? – Well, the good news is all that alternative energy seems to have had a remarkable effect on the climate. Sunday night, parts of Texas got the temperatures that we typically see in Alaska. In fact, they were the same as they were in Alaska. So global warming is no longer a pressing concern in Houston. The bad news is, they don’t have electricity. The windmills froze, so the power grid failed. Millions of Texans woke up Monday morning having to boil their water because with no electricity, it couldn’t be purifi

Flashback: Investor Warren Buffet told an audience in Omaha, Nebraska. “For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”

Sky News: Germany is held up as the world’s solar and wind capital by “renewables luvvies” but Germans are freezing through winter due to “millions of solar panels blanketed in snow” and turbines sitting idle, according to Rowan Dean. “Germany’s long been held up by the likes of these renewable luvvies, they say Germany’s the world’s great wind and solar capital,” Mr Dean said. “But as we speak millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and 30,000 wind turbines are sitting idle because there’s no wind. “Freezing Germans shivering in their lederhosen’s are desperate for coal fired power to heat up their wurst and sauerkraut.”

Report from Texas Public Policy Foundation:  2018: The Texas Wind Power Story: Part 1 – How Subsidies Drive Texas Wind Power Development:Texas has witnessed a boom in wind energy development over the past 15 years that put the state on the map as leader in renewable energy. The state remains attractive for further development due to the federal subsidies, public-funded infrastructure expansion, and the low barriers for wind power siting and construction. But the expansion of wind power has placed a strain on the state’s delivery system that resulted in large quantities of wind generation not making it to market. Texas ratepayers committed nearly $7 billion to resolve the issue but wind expansion is reaching a point where transmission congestion is returning.”

Alex Epstein’s explains Texas power issues: 

Alex Epstein on ‘Unreliables’: “Unreliables” is the proper term for solar and wind electricity, often misleading labeled as “renewable energy.” “Renewable energy” is misleading because it usually excludes reliable, renewable large-scale hydro. And because unreliable solar and wind aren’t real, reliable energy.

King Coal – AEI 2017: ‘It takes 79 solar workers to produce same amount of electric power as one coal worker’

And in 2017: Obama touted green energy ‘investments’ at solar facility employing 5 workers, relying on $54 million in taxpayer subsidies — ‘That comes out to $10.8 million in tax-dollar subsidies per employee’ look at the amounts of energy produced per sector. (This tally does not include electricity generated by nuclear, hydroelectric and geothermal power plants.)

* 398,000 natural gas workers = 33.8% of all electricity generated in the United States in 2016

* 160,000 coal employees = 30.4 % of total electricity

* 100,000 wind employees = 5.6% of total electricity

* 374,000 solar workers = 0.9% of total electricity
