Energy Issues

 This column is a reposting of a periodic newsletter on energy issues by John Droz Jr., a physicist and citizen advocate

He aggregates articles from many different sources. 

For the full version of the latest Energy & Environmental Newsletter, please click here… To review some of the highlights, see below.

To accommodate the diversity of interesting material, the Newsletter articles are subdivided into eleven (11) categories (see below).

My vote for the most outstanding development this cycle is that Thursday night it was reported that three* NYS Health organizations officially advocated that industrial wind turbines be placed no closer to homes than 1.5 miles, and be limited to a maximum of 35 dBA noise! Watch this very short video.


>*(The Chautauqua County Board of Health, and the Western New York Health Alliance, and the NYS Association of County Health Officials!

There were also several other superior articles, including: (short video) True Costs of Renewables - the Texas Lesson;

Restore Electricity Market Integrity to Ensure Grid Reliability; Socialism/Communism: Two Sides of the Same Coin; (short video) "I Am the Majority" Mark Robinson;

Scientists: Dishonest or Afraid?; Climate science has died: the effects will be big; Climate Extremism in the Age of Disinformation; Climate change: On media perceptions and misperceptions; Why climate skeptics will lose — and how they can win.

Note 1: We recommend reading the Newsletter on your computer, not your phone, as some documents (e.g. PDFs) are much easier to read on a large computer screen… We’ve tried to use common fonts, etc. to minimize display issues.

Note 2: Originally this was a monthly Newsletter. However, as pertinent material proliferated, it has been issued more frequently. As a guideline once we collect a hundred worthwhile articles, a new Newsletter will be issued on the following Monday. Recently this has resulted in a once every three weeks frequency — and occasionally once every two weeks.

Note 3: Our intention is to put some balance into what most people see from the mainstream media about energy, environmental and education issues… As always, please pass the Newsletter on to open-minded citizens, and link to it on your social media sites. If there are others who you think would benefit from being on our Energy & Environmental email list, please let me know. If at any time you'd like to be taken off this list, simply send me an email saying that.

Note 4: This Newsletter is intended to supplement the material on our website, WiseEnergy.org. For wind warriors, the most important page there is the Winning page.

Note 5: I am not an attorney, so no material appearing in any of the Newsletters (or the WiseEnergy.org website) should be construed as giving legal advice. My recommendation has always been: consult a competent licensed attorney when you are involved with legal issues.

FYI, the new buzzword is community “resilience.” Like its sibling “sustainability” this is the Left creating a Trojan Horse that is intended to fool trusting, well-intended, and unaware citizens. Hopefully that will not be any of our readers.

Since there is such a diversity of interesting material, the Newsletter articles are subdivided into eight (8) categories, including one about Greta.

My vote for the most outstanding articles this cycle: Climate and the Money Trail,
Wind turbine infrasound articles became too hot for the Sierra Club to handle,
Renewables May Make Us Feel Good, But Realistically They Just Don’t Work,
A Line-By-Line Response to Greta Thunberg’s UN Speech,
The climate crusade marches across America!.

Since there is such a diversity of interesting material, the Newsletter articles are subdivided into four (4) categories.

Two most outstanding articles:

Cost-Effective Renewable Energy is a Fictional Construct and
The New Gas Revolution That Could Make Renewable Energy Obsolete.

Energy Economics —
Cost-Effective Renewable Energy is a Fictional Construct

Why should we subsidize tomorrow’s rich in the name of the climate?

WASHINGTON, DC – American households can expect tens of thousands of dollars in higher costs for energy, housing, transportation, and shipping if the Green New Deal is implemented, according to a new study released today by Power the Future and the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

The joint study, co-authored by Power the Future Founder and Executive Director Daniel Turner and CEI President and CEO Kent Lassman, finds each household in five model states – Alaska, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Pennsylvania – will be on the hook for more than $70,000 in increased costs for electricity, upgrading vehicles and housing, and shipping in just the first year under the Green New Deal.

April 10, 2019

The recent op-ed from Life:Powered’s Mike Nasi in the Albuquerque Journalcalling attention to the insurmountable cost and reliability problems with New Mexico’s renewable energy mandate is making waves.

U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) this weekend published a rebuttal attempting to rebut Mr. Nasi claiming “disinformation” while offering no supporting data or sourcing for his claims. We welcome debate and discussion — they are the cornerstones of our democratic republic — but the senator’s piece is riddled with factual errors and omissions.

At Life:Powered, we’re committed to the truth, not to partisan agendas. Here’s how Sen. Heinrich’s rebuttal stacks up against the actual facts.
