Say, What Would Australia Look Like With 100% Renewable Energy Or Something

Nicky Ison (@nickymison) is the “founding director of the Community Power Agency and research associate at the Institute for Sustainable Futures at the University of Technology Sydney.” It sure looks like he has a lot at stake in pushing for more and more “renewable” energy to be built. And he thinks they can do 100%. […]

Good Luck, Germany: All Coal Plants To Close, Will “Rely” On Renewables

This should be fun. The green grid in Australia collapsed under the weight of the heat wave, which is typically the norm when “relying” on energy that is called “the renewable supply duck neck (power only arrives when it isn’t needed).” Solar doesn’t work at night when people are home and trying to sleep with air conditioning […]

Federal Court Seriously Quotes Children’s Cartoon Movie In Pipeline Decision

Suddenly, Washington Post Is Against Using Food For Fuel (’cause Trump)

This reminds me of the time that the NY Times came to the realization that using food for fuel is a Bad Idea (it’s worth reading the full article, as it still applies today). Of course, that was during the Obama administration (4/7/2011), so there was no hint of Blaming Obama. Now we have the […]
