Why the Green New Deal is a "lie" that will never work

Liberals tell us that we are in the midst of a transition from fossil fuels to wind and solar energy. The reality is that no such transition is taking place, nor will it. This video by Professor Simon Michaux, who doesn’t take issue with global warming hype, explains one of several reasons why this is true: the mineral requirements of a wind- and solar-based energy system can’t possibly be met.

The quantity of metal required to make just one generation of renewable tech units to replace fossil fuels, is much larger than first thought. Current mining production of these metals is not even close to meeting demand. Current reported mineral reserves are also not enough in size. Most concerning is copper as one of the flagged shortfalls.

Wyoming Judge Deems White House Ban on Federal Drilling Legal

In a debate over land and water leases off the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl claimed that the White House’s ruling to pause oil and gas leasing was legal as it was done to allow for further consideration for environmental harms.

The ruling cited that "substantial evidence in record supports the decision to postpone the March 2021 lease sales over concerns that the associated environmental assessment did not satisfy recent federal court caselaw that had found similar EAs lacked sufficient NEPA analysis."

This follows U.S. District Court Judge Terry Doughty's ruling, which claims that the executive order violates the Mineral Leasing Act and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act. These types of back-and-forth discussions will continue until a verdict is reached.
