America’s big auto companies, less than 15 years since they were bailed out of bankruptcy following the Clinton-Bush recession of 2008, are betraying the American people out of their greed for government cash and favor. Their “net zero” plans – in conjunction with the globalist dictators and the Biden Administration – include eliminating huge numbers of jobs and devastating major segments of the U.S. economy. The Democratic Congress has imposed taxes on the American people to subsidize electric vehicle purchases by wealthy, politically correct institutions, including rental car agencies, government bureaucracies, and other entities buying in bulk. Meanwhile, auto manufacturers are planning to virtually eliminate auto…

Oil, the State, and War: The Foreign Policies of Petrostates, by Emma Ashford, Georgetown University Press, 365 pages, $34.95 It doesn't take a Ph.D. to see that oil drives conflict. Just looking at the recent history of America's interventions in the Middle East will do. During the Tanker War of the 1980s, the U.S. Navy fought Iran to protect Iraq's oil. Then, during the first Gulf War, the U.S. military fought Iraq to protect Kuwait and Saudi Arabia's oil. After three decades of war in Iraq, the United States came full circle, with the Trump administration threatening Iran while Iran…

I Went To D.C. To Help Save The Republic. God Turned Me Into A Walking Medical Miracle Instead.

My foray into government seemed in hyperdrive. It was my patriotic attempt to do all I could to restore our nation to its first principles and a greater respect for life. I had left my 30-year career as a chemist to become a speechwriter and advisor to then Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin. I was an energy policy wonk and had the honor of collaborating with the White House a few times on key issues. When we were not reelected in 2019, I began to prepare a return to private life when I was appointed as a Senior Advisor in the…

Horowitz: The energy crisis is worse than you think — and it’s by design

  • Post author:
  • Post category:Uncategorized

We can’t wait until after the election to deal with a looming winter electricity crisis. Republicans must make demands on energy production in the continuing budget resolution to promote nuclear and coal power plants, terminate all of the onerous regulations that have stifled their productivity, and turbocharge our natural gas delivery capabilities. Anything short of an immediate deregulation plan will place Americans in the same predicament as Europe, where they are discussing group showers, eating bugs, and drinking sewage, as they face a $2 trillion surge in electricity prices. Thanks to the controlled demolition of coal and nuclear power, there…

Climate activists, led by Fridays for Future, are holding a global climate strike today to pressure world leaders to do more to address the crisis. We speak to Mikaela Loach, who has helped lead the fight against developing the Cambo oil field off the coast of Scotland and who describes the importance of seeing antiracism and climate activism as linked. “We’re in this crisis because fossil fuels and nature have been completely extracted and destroyed to make profit and to continue expansion of economies, in the Global North in particular,” says Loach.

Russian Oil tanker makes a delivery to Shell Refinery Spring 2011 by joecabby2011 used under CC BY-SA 2.0 OilPrice.com: Russia’s Oil Exports Are Set To Plunge Next Year * Russia’s oil exports have been resilient since it invaded Ukraine, falling just 400,000 bpd below pre-war levels despite international sanctions. * The EU's embargo on crude oil this December and its embargo on oil products in February will displace 2.4 million bpd of oil. * While Russia may be able to find buyers for roughly half of that supply, it seems inevitable that its exports will fall dramatically. Nearly seven months after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,…
