This 80 minute movie is must-viewing for anyone who suspects the “climate emergency” is a manufactured crisis—and especially for those believe the so-called “emergency” is real. But who manufactured the “crisis”? And why? Climate the Movie gives the answers. Just click on the picture for the YouTube version.… Read more

“I was wrong about renewables,” says former green-energy executive 

A twenty-year veteran of clean tech now says we need to use more, not less, energy, especially natural gas and nuclear

Renewables will make electricity so cheap that they’ll pay for themselves, explained the news media to the public over the last decade. Electric cars will replace internal combustion vehicles and drive down oil use. And poor nations will “leapfrog” into being rich with solar panels and batteries.

However, a different picture has emerged over the last three years. Rather than renewables paying for themselves, President Joe Biden and Congress passed legislation in 2022 that could result in an astonishing $1 trillion of taxpayer money for renewables, efficiency, and electric cars.… Read more

Canada can’t meet electricity demand if new cars and trucks must be EV by 2035: Fraser Institute

To meet Ottawa policy, electricity grid would have to expand by the equivalent of 10 Site-C dams—an impossible demand, report says

Below is the news release for a report by the Fraser Institute, Failure to Charge: A Critical Look at Canada’s EV Policy, on the feasibility of converting Canada from fossil-fuel vehicles to all-electric vehicles.

VANCOUVER—The federal government’s requirement that all new vehicles sold by 2035 be electric could increase Canada’s power demands by as much as 15.3 per cent, requiring the equivalent of 10 new mega hydro dams or 13 large natural gas plants to meet the increased power needs, finds a new study published today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.… Read more

Net Zero by 2050 policy will make Canadians colder and poorer

Carbon tax makes everything more expensive, with near-zero impact on ‘climate change’

By Andrew Roman, Epoch Times, March 18, 2024

A country can go from comfort to poverty a lot faster than from poverty to comfort.  Europe and much of Asia saw that after World War II. If we destroy our affordable and reliable energy infrastructure, and the industries that rely on it, it will take decades of poverty to rebuild it.

An escalating carbon tax on gasoline and diesel fuel is, effectively, an extra tax on energy (in addition to existing fuel taxes at the pump). Canada’s annual carbon tax rebate only gives us back a small percentage of the inflationary price increases that we are paying—now and in the future.… Read more
