Congress should take this as a teachable moment and mandate that the plant generate all its electricity from wind or solar and that Congress will rely on no other powerplants. I suspect the Republic would be a lot safer if staffers and Members had to get by on a few hours of electricity a day.
Do you ever get the feeling the NOAA crew is rooting for destruction?
Let’s talk about that jobs “blip.”
For you Alaskaphiles out there…
I bet you did not know that Commissioner Binz is the hand-picked successor of the current FERC chairman, who himself is hostile to coal, natural gas, and anything, really, that works.
Musk to market: We don’t need no stinking Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Our friend Matt Yglesias (and we use the term loosely) points out that Tesla actually lost money this quarter. Of course, Matt is fine with that (and apparently so is Wall Street).
Teachable moment for Governor Hickenlooper: Sometimes those crony capitalists don’t live up to their end of the bargain.
Watch Whatley work. Keystone opponents will not like this interview.
Do you think the protesters drove there?
This is why FERC and Binz matter.
Fancy that, we can drill our way out of the problem.
Attack energy production, modern life, and our standard of living as much as you want, but if you use global warming to threaten our ability to grill real meat? You’ve crossed a line, this is blasphemy.
These suckers are floating around London’s sewers and they’re spun up about fracking? I’m not a betting man, but I’m willing to wager that burning “fatbergs” is much dirtier and less efficient than hydrocarbons.
Memo to Obama Motors executives: You cannot sell a product people don’t want and expect to make a profit.
Huh, turns out adding pipelines does help prices at the pump.
Even Don Draper can’t save this guy.
Doubling down on mandates for fuel that doesn’t exist and jacking up food and fuel prices for all Americans. All in day’s work for the EPA.
Actions speak louder than words.
The last Republican governor to show this much love to wind and solar? Bob McDonnell.
Not familiar with North Carolina’s energy portfolio? IER has you covered.
Clarity would be good. Looking for clarity from this Administration is a fool’s errand.
You might have missed this. But we did not.
About that growing “conservative” coalition for a carbon tax…
Divide et impera.
When you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Do you think Sanders and Ma’am Boxer will drag CAP, the Sierra Club and the League of Conservation voters to the Hill and harangue them for their foreign, “dark money” funding? We don’t think so either.
If they want to try a carbon tax, they’d better do so in the light of day.
You RFS advocates keep saying those words “free market.” I do not think it means what you think it means.
Just come out and say it. You’re slow walking, blocking, and denying anything that doesn’t fit your little paradigm. Don’t worry, we already knew. It’s obvious.
Next Step…Senators float bill to name post office After Keystone XL Pipeline. It will do about as much good.
Sally Jewell steps right into Ken Salazar’s shoes as the self righteous bully at the helm of the Department of Interior.
Keeping the President honest is not an easy job. That’s why we leave it to this guy.
Arbitrary, broad, and destructive? Just the kind of thing this administration loves.
Here’s what passes for Presidential logic: A $7 billion infrastructure project (ie. Keystone XL) financed privately is “not a jobs plan”, but spending $50 billion in taxpayer dollars on bridges is “putting people immediately to work.”
For all the PR hype, subsidies, and political fanfare, you’d think renewables would generate more than this. If you’ve been reading anything from IER, you already know better.
No word on the 3 light bulbs powered by this wind turbine, but odds are they weren’t on much anyways.
