The crazy things Biden’s anti-coal crusade will do to ordinary Americans

Biden is now following through on his plans by wielding the vast power of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Biden’s EPA gave the U.S. coal industry an ultimatum: spend billions or die.

This is all part of President Biden’s goal to completely decarbonize the U.S. electrical grid by 2035 and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas …

Why Climate Activists’ Push for Renewable Energy May Backfire

Renewables such as wind and solar are intermittent and largely unpredictable energy sources, with rapid swings in output from one minute to the next. This creates major challenges for operators of the nation’s electricity grid, because supply must equal demand, and the supply “curve” in a given area never tracks the output from intermittent renewable …
