The Truth About the Failure of German Energy Policies

German energy policies, contrary to fractivist opinion, have been an unmitigated disaster for consumers, the environment and their nation’s independence.

Germany embarked on Energiewende in 2010 with the goal of eventually making Germany independent of fossil fuels. The idea was to phase out oil, coal, and natural gas to allow for drastic reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. Since 2009, Germany has spent over a hundred billion euros on solar and wind…

The Stark Raving Mad World of Environmental Extremism

The world of environmental extremism is an increasingly bizarre, upside down, stark, raving mad one where any semblance of reason is thrown to the wind.

The first speech I ever gave, way back in the 1960s, as part of an Future Farmers of America (FFA) regional high school speaking contest, was about conservation.

“As for making America great, America was never that great!”
