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. 

One of the top stories globally has been the horrifically bad bushfires in Australia. Here's the link to the newsletter online: http://wiseenergy.org/Energy/Newsletters/Special_(1-10-20).pdf 

Unfortunately the mainstream media has latched onto that as another “proof” that the world has been infected with "global warming” (e.g. here and here).

What this really proves instead is that what seems to be intuitive is often not true.

This is our first Energy & Environmental Newsletter for 2020! For the full version of this issue, please click here… To review some of the highlights, see below.

For those who took some time off over the holidays, there were two Special Editions of the Newsletter that you should check out:
1 - A full archive of all past 11± years of Newsletters, and
2 - My no-holds-barred commentary on the New Year & New Decade.

Here is a fascinating exposé about renewables — by a radical environmental (Left) group! If they get it, why don’t all Conservatives and Republicans?

My votes for the most outstanding articles this cycle are:

Happy New Year! 😀

Successful, happy people typically have the wise habit of periodically stepping-back to get a broader perspective as to what’s going on in their life, and society in general.

Since we are now not only beginning a New Year, but also a New Decade, it seems that doing such a careful analysis is strongly advisable.

You’ll have to decide about the pros and cons of your own life, but here is my perspective as to what is societally going on — what I’m calling the Big Picture.

We get many requests for studies, reports and articles on a specific topic (e.g. wind energy infrasound) that were in previous Newsletters. Although Master Resource has generously posted some prior issues of the Newsletter, there was no way to quickly search over multiple prior Newsletter issues — until now!

Although it took a substantial amount of time, we’ve now put each of our prior eleven years (!) of Newsletters into eleven separate (searchable) documents.

Additionally, we’ve combined all eleven years into one (very large but still searchable) document — which has 13,500± studies, reports and articles!

See here for this new, hopefully helpful index.

This is our last Energy & Environmental Newsletter for 2019. For the full version of this issue, please click here…  To review some of the highlights, see below.

To accommodate the diversity of interesting material, the Newsletter articles are subdivided into ten (10) categories (see below).

My votes for the most outstanding articles this cycle are:

Best wishes to all our faithful 10,000+ Newsletter readers, to have a safe, enjoyable and profitable New Year. Thank you for your support. It’s much appreciated!

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.

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.

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.
