• Redundancies, Bankruptcies, Unrealistic Power Contracts: The Wind Industry Crisis Deepens

    • Date: 22/11/19
    • John Constable, GWPF Energy Editor

    Redundancies at Enercon, the ongoing saga of the Senvion bankruptcy, and growing unease within the wind industry itself at the extremely low power prices being contracted, suggest that in desperate efforts to maintain a lucrative market position the sector has put itself in danger. Presumptious Maid! with looks intentAgain she stretched, again she bent, Nor […]

  • The Brave New World of Ample Oil

    In the oil universe, the September 14th attack on Saudi Aramco’s oil facilities is comparable to the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York City. Yet, the taking out of half of the Kingdom’s oil output led not to an oil shock but a whimper. Barely two weeks after the brazen attack, oil headlines […]

  • Prof. Michael Kelly: Energy Policy Needs ‘Herds Of Unicorns’

    • Date: 12/11/19
    • The Global Warming Policy Foundation

    Utopian thinking is putting the economy at risk says Cambridge professor. The UK’s decision to embark on a wholesale decarbonisation of the economy is beset by superficial thinking that ignores engineering reality.  That’s according to Professor Michael Kelly, emeritus professor of engineering at the University of Cambridge. At the 2019 Annual GWPF Lecture, Professor Kelly […]

  • Forget the Green New Deal: America Is Now an Energy Superpower

    • Date: 10/11/19
    • Mark J Perry, The National Interest

    In 2050, EIA projections see fossil fuels supplying 79% of U.S. energy consumption, with nuclear, hydropower and biomass supplying 12.5%, and the “real” renewables that are part of the Green New Deal and other energy pipedreams (windmills and solar panels) supplying only about 8.5% of US energy consumption. America’s status as the world’s leading energy […]

  • The Middle East Convulses, But Thanks To Fracking America Hardly Notices

    • Date: 06/11/19
    • Daniel Markind, Forbes

    The Middle East turned on its axis last week. Thanks in large part to the shale revolution, few Americans heard about it – and most did not care who did.  Last week, the governments of both Lebanon and Iraq resigned. Seemingly organically, large protests erupted in both countries cutting across the ethnic divide. In each case, the protesters […]

  • The UK Shale Gas Fracking ‘Ban’: Who Wins, Who Loses?

    • Date: 03/11/19
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    The UK government’s new long-term moratorium on shale gas exploration will reduce competition and increase prices in the markets supplying methane to produce the large quantities of hydrogen without which the Net Zero emissions target for 2050 is infeasible.  Odd though it may seem, a shale gas “ban” makes climate change mitigation even more expensive. In […]

  • Roger Pielke Jr: The World is Not Going To Reduce Carbon Dioxide Emissions by 50% By 2030, Now What?

    • Date: 28/10/19
    • Roger Pielke Jr., Forbes

    Anyone advocating a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030 is engaging in a form of climate theater, full of drama but not much suspense. Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that “limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.” Specifically, “Global net human-caused emissions […]
