Big Government Is Killing Green Energy

I trek across Iowa at least three or four times per year, and one sight has come to define the state for me: miles upon miles of (largely government-incentivized) wind turbines. Iowa’s wind power accounts for 20% of the state’s total energy output, putting them in third place behind Texas and California in capitalizing on what some see as the wave of the future: renewable energy.

The Environmentalist Religion

I’m an avowed skeptic on anthropogenic climate change. Sure, humans might be responsible for some negligible shift in global temperatures. But these feeble contributions pale in comparison to those caused by the sun (e.g., changes in solar radiation) and earth (e.g., volcanic activity, weather patterns). I also believe that the climate is supposed to vary over time; this is to be expected, not feared.

Snow, Not Apocalypse

We’ve been here before. A storm bears down on the media centers of the east coast. Reporters don silly parkas, galosh into the tempest and offer apocalyptic sermons about climate change. “Repent! The End is Nigh!”Because who would expect the northeast to get snow in February — it’s unheard of!When I mock this predictable alarmism, Twitter lefties are quick to attack my blasphemy. “Y u hate sceince?! stoopid rethuglican!!1!” says an engaging fellow with an egg avatar and no followers. Yes, your piercing logic has swayed my scientific understanding, @m1tts4tard.

The Grassroots Are Getting More Organic

Laura Bledsoe wasn't that interested in politics of any kind, least of all conservative politics. The back-to-nature farmer would be considered a bit of a hippie to many traditional Republicans. But Laura's foray into community-supported agriculture has turned her into a Tea Party hero, highlighting a growing alliance between limited-government activists and small organic farmers.

Voters Rank Energy Policy over Environmental Policy

When you cast your ballot next week, will you be more concerned with the candidates’ positions on energy or the environment? A recent poll shows that most American voters are more concerned with energy policy than environmental policy when it comes to selecting a candidate for whom to vote.

Is the Obama Administration Still Artificially Inflating Job Numbers By Counting 'Lives Touched'?

When last month's unemployment rate took a sudden and unexpected plunge to 7.8%, conservatives who thought there was something amiss took a beating in the media.  Jack Welch was particularly excoriated for a tweet he sent out suggesting that the numbers were fabricated, and others who had similar doubts were labeled condescendingly as 'unemployment rate truthers'.

Issue Analysis

Is Wind Energy Worth the Green?

Since environmental issues are becoming increasingly salient in the political arena, the subject of alternative energy subsidies warrants some attention. Currently, Congress is deciding whether or not to extend the Production Tax Credit (PTC), a 20-year subsidy which is responsible for most of the growth in the wind sector. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has exerted considerable political pressure on legislators, both state and federal, in order to garner support for the extension of this subsidy.
