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.”

Report says the quiet part out loud: ‘Heavy industry’ (iron, steel, cement) will have to ‘adapt’ to intermittent solar/wind energy – ‘Will need to accommodate effects of weather conditions…time of day on wind & solar power generation’

“The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a nonprofit research organization, develops policies to reduce energy waste and combat climate change.”

Report: “With Planning, Heavy Industry Can Use Wind and Solar Power”The growth of renewable power is key to helping industrial companies decarbonize quickly and economically, but it will also require them to adapt. While many facilities operate 24/7, they will need to accommodate the effects of weather conditions, the season of the year, and the time of day on wind and solar power generation.

‘Heavy industry’ includes energy-intensive industries, such as iron and steel, cement, bulk chemicals, refining, and food and beverage manufacturing.

New Study: Up To 87% Of Modern Warming Can Be Explained By Variations In Solar Activity by Kenneth Richard Nearly all of the alleged anthropogenic link to climate change can be removed simply by exchanging and/or replacing biased temperature and solar activity data sets. A new study authored by 37 scientists in the journal Climate finds using rural-only Northern Hemisphere temperature data (i.e., removing artificial, non-climatic urban heat effects) reduces the post-1850 warming trend […]

‘Incredible Job’: John Kerry Praises China For Using More Slave Labor-Made Green Energy Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry heaped praise upon the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) green energy initiatives Monday, failing to acknowledge allegations that the CCP utilizes slave labor in production of certain green energy technologies, according to The Washington Post. Kerry said that the CCP is doing an “incredible job” with its green […]

China seeks military dominance through fossil fuels – USA ‘losing nearly 1 million barrels per day of oil refining capacity’ as China’s oil refining capacity overtook U.S. as the world’s largest in 2022 By Ronald Stein  As the world watches, China has been aggressively building its fleet of ships and aircraft in anticipation of a potential attack on Taiwan. To support that military domination, China is also aggressively building its fossil fuel refining capabilities to power those ships and aircraft. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden is aggressively campaigning to rid […]

Limitations on mining for electricity: ‘More than 3 billion tons of metals & minerals’ needed over next 3 decades Just for electricity from EV batteries and the electricity occasionally generated from wind turbines and solar panels, the World Bank estimates that more than three billion tons of metals and minerals could be required over the next three decades to power the technologies for a global electricity transition. The transition to electricity and its […]

California’s emissions regulatory death spiral By Ronald Stein  I just got back from a 2-hour lunch with one of the guys who serves on working groups and committees of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), and he shared his frustrations working with these agencies. The frustration stems from the devastating impact […]
