House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Probe Secretary Granholm’s Taxpayer-Funded EV Road Trip WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Energy Policy, and Regulatory Affairs Chairman Pat Fallon (R-Texas) today initiated an investigation into U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm’s 2023 taxpayer-funded electric vehicle (EV) road trip. The trip, which consisted of travel across multiple states, was “intended […]

Politico: ‘Green’ buildings face a flood of doubts – 800 U.S. buildings certified as ‘sustainable’ are at extreme risk of flooding — & may have to be abandoned By CORBIN HIAR More than 800 U.S. buildings certified as “sustainable” are at extreme risk of flooding — and may have to be abandoned as the planet continues to overheat. That’s because the U.S. Green Building Council — an influential nonprofit that works to make buildings more climate-friendly — has for years largely overlooked […]

Watch: Morano on Fox celebrates end to ‘climate emergency’ — IF — we spent just $75 trillion! – ‘We should all have little party hats & confetti. We’re $75 trillion dollars away from not hearing about climate change nonsense’

Plus: Morano interprets AOC’s word salad on why she bought a non-union EV

Morano: If you actually parse what AOC said, which I admit is painful to actually do — she’s basically saying before the vaccine, we had stay-at-home orders, so they didn’t need to go anywhere. So, therefore, an EV fit the bill because I guess the range was so limited. It didn’t matter because she then immediately said well, now they’re ranges better. 

This is the controlled demolition of the American auto unions and the American automobile industry. These EV mandates are coming from California, coming from Joe Biden’s EPA, and yet, they’re acting as though they’re the friends of the union. A million people make non electric cars. Just about 40% of those or 400,000 workers, could lose their job if these EV mandates actually went through.

Morano: The United Nations claims that in order to meet Net Zero, you have to keep the temperatures within 1.5 degrees Celsius. We now know from the Climategate scandal that the entire premise of Net Zero was, quote, ‘pulled from thin air’; all of these temperature goals are political statements, and they have no idea how to achieve any temperature goals.

The $75 trillion dollars is similar to estimates for the UN Paris Agreement, which would probably a little bit cheaper, and the Green New Deal, which was a little bit cheaper than these estimates.

The idea is that if we spend enough money, we can finally end the climate emergency. We should all have little party hats and confetti and be throwing it. We’re $75 trillion dollars away from not hearing about climate change nonsense. There won’t be a climate emergency anymore. All we have to do is write this check, and they’ll all go away. Of course, that won’t happen. There are no criteria to end this. This is only a down payment in their minds, $75 trillion dollars.

We’re saved from ‘climate change’— if — world spends $70 trillion plus! US$2.7 trillion annual investment required for global net-zero by 2050 By Simon Yuen At least US$2.7 trillion must be invested in renewables, infrastructure and energy transition technologies annually to achieve global net-zero emissions by 2050, according to energy research company Wood Mackenzie. In its Energy Transition Outlook 2023, Wood Mackenzie outlines three scenarios about energy transition. In the 1.5 degree scenario, carbon emissions should align with the […]

Michael Bloomberg Unleashes Another $500 Million to Destroy US Coal Industry By Joseph Vazquez Media mogul and failed presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is not letting up on his years-long obsession with putting the nails in the coffin on the U.S. coal industry. The Bloomberg News owner pledged another $500 million to “expand the Beyond Carbon campaign, one of the largest philanthropic efforts to fight the […]

Solar Energy Is Getting 200 Times More In Federal Subsidies Than Nuclear & 191 Times More in Subsidies Than Oil, Gas & Coal – Solar handouts could total $900 billion by 2060

Robert Bryce: “Thanks to climate corporatism, some of America’s biggest corporations, including NextEra Energy and MidAmerica Energy, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, are collecting billions of dollars in tax credits and they stand to collect untold billions more in the coming years thanks to the IRA.” … 

“The subsidy picture for the landscape-blighting, bird-bat-and-whale-killing wind industry is only slightly less depressing. According to the the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), the wind sector collected about $2.2 billion in federal tax subsidies in 2022. Last year, the domestic wind sector produced 4.1 EJ of energy. That means the wind sector got roughly $537 million per EJ, or about 41 times more than what was given to the nuclear sector.” … 

“What about hydrocarbons? The JCT figures show that federal tax incentives for the hydrocarbon sector totaled about $1.1 billion last year. According to the Statistical Review of World Energy, domestic hydrocarbon production last year totaled about 79 EJ. Thus, the hydrocarbon sector got only slightly more federal tax love than the nuclear sector: about $13.9 million per EJ. That means that solar energy got about 191 times more per EJ produced than what was given to hydrocarbon producers in 2022.” …

“Our grid should be weather resilient, not weather dependent. That means we should be developing low-carbon energy sources that are resilient, scalable, affordable, and ready for deployment. That means N2N: natural gas to nuclear.”


Update: Robert Bryce: Actually, Solar Is Getting 302 Times More In Federal Subsidies Than Nuclear – An August EIA report shows my prior calculations were too low by half

California’s climate lawsuit against oil & gas industry is a ‘financial shakedown’ By Chris Woodward A skeptic of catastrophic man-made climate change is calling California’s lawsuit against some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies another “financial shakedown.” The state claims Big Oil has deceived the public about the risks of fossil fuels that plaintiffs say are responsible for things like storms and wildfires. “For […]

Here’s the Climate Dissent You’re Not Hearing About Because It’s Muffled by Society’s Top Institutions By John Murawski, RealClearInvestigations As the Biden administration and governments worldwide make massive commitments to rapidly decarbonize the global economy, the persistent effort to silence climate change skeptics is intensifying – and the critics keep pushing back.  Global Climate Intelligence Group This summer the International Monetary Fund summarily canceled a presentation by John Clauser, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist who […]

Green Fail: UK Government Offshore Wind Farm Auction Attracts Zero Bids

Zero. That was the sum total of new UK offshore wind projects bought by developers at a key government auction Thursday, as renewable energy groups shunned the sector as unviable even with heavy taxpayer subsidies. — Wittgenstein (@backtolife_2023) September 8, 2023 by SIMON KENT Zero.
