Energy Security Must Include Reliable Power

The Oba­ma — EPA  plan ensures that black­outs will be in our future. Unlike pop­u­la­tions in most oth­er parts of the world, we Amer­i­cans take vital ben­e­fits of depend­able elec­tric­i­ty for grant­ed. We sim­ply plug into an out­let or flip on a switch and ful­ly expect that our lights will go on, our com­put­ers will […]

Colorado Legislature Isn’t Waiting For Supreme Court Decision On EPA’s Mercury Rule

TIME’S A WASTIN’: Ahead of the Supreme Court deci­sion on the EPA’s Mer­cury Rule, the Col­orado Leg­is­la­ture is tak­ing mat­ters into it’s own hands.

Contract Extension Could Leave Landowners Flapping in the Breeze

Crit­ics say a pro­posed leg­isla­tive fix vio­lates the spir­it of the law against spe­cial leg­is­la­tion for cor­po­ra­tions and under­cuts options for landown­ers who may rethink their involve­ment with wind devel­op­ers. The con­tro­ver­sy focus­es on the 82-megawatt Black Oak wind farm — on the draw­ing board in Stearns Coun­ty since 2008. State law requires that wind ener­gy projects […]

The EPA has recent­ly banned the pro­duc­tion and sale of 80 per­cent of America’s cur­rent wood-burn­ing stoves, the old­est heat­ing method known to mankind and main­stay of rur­al homes and many of our nation’s poor­est res­i­dents. The agency’s strin­gent one-size-fits-all rules apply equal­ly to […]

Renewable energy ‘simply WON’T WORK’: Top Google engineers

Wind­mills, solar, tidal — all a ‘false hope’, say Stan­ford PhDs Two high­ly qual­i­fied Google engi­neers who have spent years study­ing and try­ing to improve renew­able ener­gy tech­nol­o­gy have stat­ed quite blunt­ly that renew­ables will nev­er per­mit the human race to cut CO2 emis­sions to the lev­els demand­ed by cli­mate activists. What­ev­er the future holds, […]
