Barack Obama has staked the energy future of this country on wind energy:

Some say” Obama is obsessed with wind energy:

Obama’s speech: There’s a pipe spewing a gazillion gobs of oil into the gulf, so let’s build more windmills

As with Obama’s dream for socialized health care, Britain has...

There is so much wrong with how Barack Obama has handled the Gulf oil spill, it’s almost hard to know where to begin.

Put aside the ineptitude of the approval process and clean up response. For today, I’m focusing on the tentative settlement with ...

There is something profoundly bass ackwards in the way Obama is reacting to the disaster in the Gulf.

Obama keeps focusing on legal liability:

President Obama will use his first Oval Office speech Tuesday night to outline a plan to legally compel BP to create an escrow account to compensate businesses and individuals...

My my, how Paul Krugman worries that our President may come under criticism from the vast right-wing conspiracy for the Eight Days In April.

The Eight Days In April during which our President twiddled his environmental clean-up and emergency response thumbs in the face of what may be the worst oil spill...

The reaction to Obama’s announcement that he is opening up some offshore areas to drilling is laughable. There will be no drilling anytime soon, and the plan closes more areas to drilling than it opens.

This likely is Obama’s attempt to tack to the center as the health care bill continues to...

As I posted earlier, the key elements in “green” technology are rare metals mined mostly in China. The green economy envisioned by the Obama administration as the means by which we will grow “green jobs” and lessen our dependence on foreign oil in fact simply puts us at...

From where do the ingredients of “green” technology come? Apparently, mostly from some environmentally toxic mines in China:

Some of the greenest technologies of the age, from electric cars to efficient light bulbs to very large wind turbines, are made possible by an unusual group of elements called rare earths. The world’s...

The global warming debate has entered the conspiracy-theory phase with this hysterical article at The Guardian: Revealed: the secret evidence of global warming Bush tried to hide.

Contrary to what the global-warming alarmists claim, however, there is scientific dispute over ice measurements.

What is not lacking, however, is satellite imagery. You see, U.S....

I did it because I’m entitled to burn a jet-load full of fuel, even though:

  • I plan to cap industry’s production of carbon emissions regardless of whether it destroys our global competitiveness
  • My carbon emission caps will cost consumers thousands of dollars per family in higher energy costs

The centerpiece of Obama’s energy plan is “alternative” energy, such as wind and solar power. Tens of billions of dollars in the “stimulus” package go towards these technologies. The viability of Obama’s energy plan is called into question by Royal Dutch Shell’s announcement that it is discontinuing investment in solar,...
