The Same Reasons WHY the EU/UK is Being Deindustrialized!
Why is Germany committing harakiri (or seppuku)? Because the Americans ordered them to do so! Recently, William F. Engdahl wrote a very interesting article titled, “Europe’s Energy Armageddon From Berlin and Brussels, Not Moscow” which was re-worked in Pepe Escobar’s “Germany’s Energy Suicide: An Autopsy”. Both articles give a fascinating explanation of HOW Germany is... Read More
A Swiss billboard is making the rounds on social media depicting a young woman on the telephone. The caption reads, "Does the neighbor heat the apartment to over 19 degrees (66F)? Please inform us."

When Green fanatic Robert Habeck, posing as Germany’s Economy Minister, said earlier this week “we should expect the worst” in terms of energy security, he conveniently forgot to spell out how the whole farce is a Made in Germany cum Made in Brussels crisis. Flickers of intelligence at least still glow in rare Western latitudes,... Read More

"Extraordinary, isn't it? I've been hearing all about COP," said the queen to the duchess of Cornwall. "Still don't know who is coming. ... We only know about people who are not coming. ... It's really irritating when they talk but they don't do." Queen Elizabeth II was expressing her exasperation at the possible number... Read More
How Donald Trump Plans to Enlist Fossil Fuels in the Struggle for Global Dominance
The new U.S. energy policy of the Trump era is, in some ways, the oldest energy policy on Earth. Every great power has sought to mobilize the energy resources at its command, whether those be slaves, wind-power, coal, or oil, to further its hegemonic ambitions. What makes the Trumpian variant -- the unfettered exploitation of... Read More
If you’re an oil exec, the world is a rosy place -- and I’m not talking about the pink haze of heat that’s been rising from the burning American West all summer.

What sort of fabulous new energy systems will the world possess in 2040? Which fuels will supply the bulk of our energy needs? And how will that change the global energy equation, international politics, and the planet’s health? If the experts at the U.S. Department of Energy are right, the startling “new” fuels of 2040...

Unfortunately, I feel the article delivered a clanger in its conclusion—that... Read More

As long as government did not interfere with markets, technology would lead to an improvement in the quality of life.... Read More
We can congratulate ourselves on our good luck in having survived eight years without any national energy policy. The principal events in Bill Clinton's custodianship of the nation's energy have been as follows: the failure to get the job-killing "BTU tax" through Congress in 1993, the failure to foist ethanol on a reluctant public in...
