The greenies' dream of "clean" (except for millions of dead birds) energy from wind farms is dying in the face of the poor economics (even with tax subsidies) and unreliable technology. The big players in constructing wind turbines are facing massive losses and write-downs and cancelling big offshore wind projects. Brace yourself for demands for...

It may prove to be as historic as the harnessing of fire, invention of the wheel, or the channeling of electricity. It will certainly rank on a par with the first release of nuclear energy in an experimental Chicago reactor or its first test as an atomic weapon near Los Alamos, New Mexico. It is the first successful experiment to...

For as long as I can remember, I have believed that fusion would eventually be the solution to replacing fossil fuels as the planet's main source of energy. The thought that the fusion of two hydrogen nuclei to create energy, using water as the fuel and creating nothing but water vapor as waste, is beyond exciting. We have an inexhaustible...

Since the advent of the COVID pandemic, Carney has been front and centre in the promotion of a political agenda known as the "Great Reset," or the "Green New Deal," or "Building Back Better." All are predicated on the claim that COVID, and its disruption of the global economy, provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not just to regulate climate,...

Relying on clean energy sources such as wind and solar while ignoring energy security has proven to be disastrous for Europe. In the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, European Union (EU) nations are scrambling to source fossil fuels to run their factories and heat their homes this winter. They vigorously boycotted Russian natural gas and...

China produces the vast majority of the Lithium-ion batteries used in EV's and hybrids etc. In the future China could (and possibly will) use this fact as leverage against Canada (and the world, for that matter.) If Canada wants to pursue a swift migration to EV's in urban settings, then we must have the ability to make our own batteries...
