The Green New Deal Can’t Break The Laws Of Physics

“If all that weren’t enough, there’s also the roughly 20 to 100-fold increase in land use that comes with using green machines to replace hydrocarbons. And, of course, there’s the mother’s milk of a Green New Deal, the trillions of dollars in subsidies, necessarily funded by increased costs and taxes for all consumers."

Suckered by Big Wind in the UK

"Because the government auctions off only as much capacity as it reckons the country needs, it will be forced to let Big Wind off the hook and allow it to charge what it wants. For wind investors, it’s a one-way bet – paid for by electricity consumers and the economy as a whole.”

Nuclear energy is a critical investment

“When it comes to making the hard choices over how best to invest taxpayer dollars, ensuring that America is a global leader in advanced nuclear power is a critical and responsible investment. With all the talk of the radical 'Green New Deal,' it’s shocking to see nuclear energy pushed aside by some on the left even though it is carbon free electricity.”

“The energy sector accounts for eight percent of our national economy. But as I often remind people, energy is the first eight percent.

“Republicans often complain that young people trend more and more liberal. With moves like this, though, the RNC isn't even trying to win over young conservative voters like me, who care about climate change but don't want to grow the government.

Will California Ever Again Embrace Nuclear Energy?

“Studies have shown that nuclear energy is one of the safest forms of energy. For example, a study that looked at deaths from energy production in European found that nuclear energy ‘results in more than 442 times fewer deaths than the dirtiest forms of coal; 330 times fewer than coal; 250 times less than oil; and 38 times fewer than gas.’ This data also shows nuclear being marginally safer than wind and solar.”
