Why the Renewable Industrial Complex’s Attacks On Michael Moore’s Planet Of the Humans Are Wrong

Last week, filmmaker Michael Moore released his latest film entitled Planet of the Humans. The film brings several inconvenient truths about renewable energy to light, namely that wind turbines and solar panels don't last very long, their intermittent nature means we still need fossil fuels, and that they require lots of land, mining, and habitat destruction to build and operate. As a result, the film has provoked a massive backlash from the Renewable Industrial Complex, but their attacks on the film are wrong. The article below debunks the claims made by wind and solar special interest groups about the film. U Mad, Bro? The backlash...

Sunday Funnies: Rep. Omar Says PolyMet Setback Is a Victory Against Fossil Fuel Executives

Jim Morrison once said “I've noticed that when people are joking they're usually dead serious, and when they're serious, they're usually pretty funny.” This phrase was spot on this week, as my Congresswoman, Ilhan Ohmar, Tweeted out that the Minnesota Court of Appeals decision to send two of PolyMet's permits back to the Department of Natural Resources was "An important victory for the people of Minnesota!" and "This is what happens when communities come together to oppose mining projects that will line the pockets of fossil fuel exces at the expense of our planet." PolyMet will be a copper-nickel mine. The mine...

The environmental left lost their minds when President Trump announced that the United States would be leaving the Paris Climate Agreement. While renewable energy boosters hurl barbs at President Trump, they ignore the fact that carbon dioxide emissions in Germany have remained flat as the country foolishly shutters its fleet of nuclear power plants to switch to wind and solar. As many of our readers already know, wind and solar are simply too unreliable to help environmental virtue signalling countries reduce their carbon dioxide emissions to the levels they pledged to accomplish under the Paris Agreement. The following article was originally published...

Elizabeth Warren Brings Her Campaign Against Reality to Minnesota

Elizabeth Warren visited Minnesota last week to hold a campaign rally in her bid  to become the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. At the rally, Warren waded into two highly controversial environmental debates in Minnesota by opposing the replacement of the Line 3 oil pipeline, and voicing her opposition to the proposed Twin Metals Minnesota mine, which would develop the massive reserves of copper, nickel, and other metals like platinum, palladium, and cobalt in northern Minnesota. Unfortunately, the policies proposed by Senator Warren represent a continuation of her campaign against reality. Line 3 Minnesotans use a lot of oil. In fact, U.S. Energy Information...

Fossil Fuels and Hydro, Not Wind or Solar, Power Sub-Saharan Africa

Access to electricity has increased dramatically in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is incredibly good news, because more than 600 million people, nearly double the population of the United States, still live with no electricity. In what should be a surprise to absolutely no one, the vast majority of this electricity was provided by fossil fuels and hydro electric power, and this is exactly how it should be....
