Germany Abandons “Green” Energy, Returns To Coal

You have got to say this about Angela Merkel:  She lies to EVERYbody, whether on the right or the left.  She lies to German conservatives and patriots about the net effect of importing hundreds of thousands of young Islamist males.  Now we discover she has lied to the German Green Party leftists about “sustainable”, renewable energy resources.  Wait for it …. Germany is not phasing out coal as a fuel for its power plants and steel mills.  And in light of Germany’s dedication to shuttering its nuclear power plants by 2022, coal will continue playing a significant role in Germany’s … Continue reading

From The “GEE, NO SHIT” File For July 8 2015

How Often Do Pigs Feed ?

Quite often, if the pig is named Elon Musk, and he’s at the trough of taxpayer’s money to “finance” another of his “businesses”. Tesla Motors received HUGE subsidies for it’s out of reach electric cars, his outer space ventures, and now for his latest scam. I think it is WAY past time these clowns use THEIR OWN DAMN MONEY to fund their “businesses”. If it is SO great, WHY does it need subsidizing, Elon ?

Another “Green Energy Success” Story for Jan 4 2015

The New Year is underway, my “family crisis” is easing up, time to get back to work. And a LARGE portion of THAT is exposing the follies and frauds of the left. This story out of Great Britain epitomizes the failure of wind energy as a viable option. As most of the Northern Hemisphere, and seemingly more so in Great Britain, shivers under a early winter cold snap, we find instead of CONTRIBUTING electrical power to HRM’s subjects to keep warm, these Avian Cuisinarts are using GRID POWER needed elsewhere to keep THEM from freezing up. Sheesh. Story from Donna Rachel … Continue reading

THIS Is The Future Of CO2 Reduction Efforts.

  Who could NOT have seen THIS conclusion come to  pass? The “geniuses” at Google (God, I hate that company) have been one of the “leaders of the charge” in the green energy scam.

THIS Is The Narrative We MUST Have.

For as long as I can remember, especially so in recent years, the environmental loony left has portrayed the ENTIRE fossil fuel industry as immoral. I TOTALLY agree with this article.
