Debunking Manhattan Institute’s “The ‘New Energy Economy’: An Exercise In Magical Thinking” — Part One

July 12th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

I was discussing the dramatic drop in coal use in the US and the dramatic rise in renewable energy production and one of my many conservative friends* referred me to this report to explain why physics proves that there is no way we can transition to renewable sources affordably, that all the innovation is coming on the fossil fuel side, and that renewables have hit a brick wall and won't be improving much at all


We’re All In This Together – We Need To Act Together

July 10th, 2020 | by George Harvey

While we are trying to find the recipients for the trillions of dollars aimed at reviving an economy bashed by Covid-19, and trying especially hard to make sure that none of it goes to the undeserving, we might consider a way to use that money to go way beyond stimulating the economy to saving the world


Carbon Pricing and Lighting, EVs, Heat Pumps, & Electric Everything

July 8th, 2020 | by Brad Rouse

What does the US need to do to help the world prevent the worst of climate change? End the use of fossil fuels fast. Many are stepping up to the challenge with aggressive goals. The EU wants to be fossil free by 2050. Joe Biden’s campaign wants the US to be fossil free by 2050 as well, based on his stated climate policy


USA Could Hit 90% Clean Electricity By 2035

June 25th, 2020 | by Nexus Media

Experts disagree about how fast the United States can replace coal and gas-fired power plants with zero-carbon electricity. Some say we can shift to 100 percent clean power by 2050 with little friction and minimal cost. Others


What If COVID-19 Caused Lung Cancer, Heart Attacks, Childhood Asthma, Dementia, Psychosis, Diabetes, Childhood Leukemia, Brain Tumors, Learning Challenges, Renal Failure, Alzheimer’s, Fetal Development Problems, Bone Fracture Risk, & Low Sperm Quality?

This article is not about COVID-19. It is not about what we should do in response to COVID-19, what government policies or our individual routines should look like. The connection to COVID-19 is simply this: we responded strongly to a serious health threat, so why can't we respond as strongly (and with immensely less harm from side effects) to a much bigger problem


Covid Nineteen : Carbon Dioxide Nil

June 8th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Whilst global megadeath was an unreservedly bad thing, on the brighter side, May 2020 gave the UK (and the rest of the world) a glimpse of how a low-carbon future will look, painting in even more vibrant colours the picture that had begun to emerge in April, the first full lockdown month

June 4th, 2020 | by U.S. Energy Information Administration

U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions declined by 2.8% in 2019 to 5,130 million metric tons (MMmt), according to data in the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Monthly Energy Review


The Oil & Gas Industry Doesn’t Have A Bright Future

June 2nd, 2020 | by Gerard Reid

The oil and gas industry has been in a recession, effectively since the global financial crisis 11 years ago. Each year, production volumes have increased by more than global demand, meaning that the market has been in decline, with lower prices for crude oil and natural gas the natural result


Energy Efficiency Is Cheaper Than Gas

June 1st, 2020 | by NRDC

A new study shows that programs to increase the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses remain even cheaper than natural gas, demonstrating once again that this abundant energy “resource” is the most cost-effective path to a cleaner future


Why Are We Subsidizing Fossil Fuels? Seriously

May 24th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Supporting renewables can cut emissions and boost the economy, all while providing cost-competitive energy. Yet the Trump Administration continues propping up the fossil fuel industry — despite the sector facing real financial problems that began long before the COVID-19 pandemic
