- In 1993 Bill Clinton used an executive order all public forcing federal agencies to buy only EPA-approved products, turning the EPA’s ‘Energy Star’ product line into a virtual cash cow
Ever Wonder Why EPA’s “Certified” Climate Saving Products Are So Insanely Expensive? - Records show that George H W Bush created the ENERGY STAR program in 1992 after NASA’s James Hanson spoke about detecting a Greenhouse Effect in 1988. ... In 1993 Bill Clinton used an executive order to implement what amounted to an ENERGY STAR mandate under the guise of bringing efficiency to the government. Which required all public agencies to buy only EPA-approved products, turning the EPA’s logo-branded product line into a virtual cash cow. That ENERGY STAR mandate has operated as a pure Pay-To-Play procurement scheme since then. It is open only to a select group of public/private partnerships operating behind closed doors.

Wind farms can simply ignore agreed contracts and cash in big time, FOI reveals
Net Zero Watch has accused the wind industry and the government of colluding to mislead the public about the true cost of wind energy.
The Government has repeatedly assured us that energy bills would soon fall as a result of much lower prices for offshore wind power, set at recent Contracts for Difference (CfD) auctions.

- We should do ‘nothing’ about ‘global warming’ declares MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen – ‘This is exploiting people’s ignorance to promote fear’

Andrew Bolt of Sky News Australia: What do you think we should do about global warming?
Dr. Richard Lindzen: "Nothing." ... "Point of fact, I don't think there's any threat on the horizon." ... "If you truly believed that it was an existential threat. Then the only thing you could do is build up your resilience. And building up your resilience means making more people wealthier because we see throughout the whole world if you are a poor country, if you're not resilient, natural disasters cause immense damage, pain, suffering, so on. In the developed world, similar disasters caused much less damage. So your aim would be resilience. Instead, we're choosing to make ourselves less resilient. And that makes no sense. at all, no matter what you believe. Point of fact, I don't think there's any threat on the horizon. And the best thing to do is to make society wealthier." ...

- ‘Death of a Climate Bank’: Silicon Valley Bank involved in more than ‘60% of community solar financing nationwide’ – ‘Issuing billions of dollars in loans’
Via Heatmap - By ROBINSON MEYER: "What hasn’t received as much attention is that Silicon Valley Bank was particularly important to the climate-tech sector. “Silicon Valley Bank was an integral part of the early-stage climate tech community and I hope that they survive in some form to continue that role,” Gabriel Kra, a managing director at Prelude Ventures, told me on Friday. Silicon Valley Bank served as a banker to dozens of climate and energy-tech companies, holding their cash on a day-to-day basis and issuing billions of dollars in loans in support of the type of large-scale, one-off projects that are essential to the sector. The bank’s website bragged about its particular support of solar, hydrogen, and energy-storage companies. It provided more than half a billion dollars in revolving credit to Sunrun, the country’s largest residential solar company.

Climate ‘scam’: An ‘all-encompassing fraud’ with ‘authoritarians & corporatists bent on achieving even more centralized political power & economic wealth’
Ed Ring: What is actually beyond debate is not that we are in a climate crisis but that if we don’t stop destroying our conventional energy economy, we are going to be in a civilizational crisis. Energy is the foundation of everything—prosperity, freedom, upward mobility, national wealth, individual economic independence, functional water and transportation infrastructure, commercial-scale agriculture, mining, and industry. Without energy, it all goes dark. And “renewables” are not even remotely capable of replacing oil, gas, coal, nuclear, and hydroelectric power. It’s impossible. The only people who think renewables are capable of replacing conventional energy are either uninformed, innumerate, or corrupt. Period. ...
Were America’s oil and gas companies simply supposed to believe all these nascent theories and shut down? What exactly should they have done, back in the mid-1960s, to cope with this allegedly looming climate emergency? Were solar panels and wind turbines ready for rapid deployment back then? Of course not, especially since solar panels from China, and wind turbines from Germany, are still not capable of providing more than a small fraction of the energy we need. The real crime, if you want to call it that, isn’t that oil and gas companies questioned climate change theories back in the 1960s or ’70s. It’s that they’re accepting them now.
