Welcome to GreenHeretic.com!
Why the provocative name? I am dismayed that the Green Movement has taken on a militant orthodoxy that tolerates no dissent from their point of view. Example? The debate is over with regard to global warming. No, it isn’t over. It has barely begun. The very notion that the “debate is over” smacks of intimidation.
As a consulting professional in the energy sector, I have become further dismayed by the excessive manipulation of information by the Greens. While they have been called out on it many times, that effort has not been effective. Why is that? Often, those who question the information do not understand the issues well enough to counter it. GreenHeretic.com intends to address that.
What topics will be addressed? Anything related to energy and the environment where clarification is needed. For the most part, this means correcting mis-information put out by the Greens, but I am not going to give anyone a pass. We will be delving quite deeply into the nuts and bolts of energy and environmental issues. If you have any topic suggestions, by all means contact me!
Why are you anti-Environment? That is a false premise. In fact, I am proud of the fact that I was one of the original organizers of Earth Day in 1970 at Carl Sandburg Junior High School in Golden Valley, Minnesota.
For that event, we transplanted dozens of trees from a tree farm owned by a teacher to the school’s campus. Those trees are fully mature today just north of the northeast corner near the main entrance to the school. GPS: 45.005722, -93.366431
GreenHeretic.com will not oppose green technology, per se. I take a dim view, however, of anyone being compelled to be green themselves. I also do not believe that the Greens should be spreading false information, especially to peddle products or influence public policy.
What false information? I have many articles planned. For example, I will show how the notion that solar energy is converging on grid competitive is not only a canard, it is rather silly. Such statements rely on deceptions that do not withstand scrutiny. I will show that the trendline for global warming is not statistically significant. We will discuss wind energy in considerable detail. Most of the articles will illuminate the canards with reference to specific articles.
How is GreenHeretic.com funded? At the present time, out of my wallet. For my day job, I work as a self-employed risk management consultant in the electric power markets. I analyze those markets for clients for trading, planning and capital investment purposes. I forecast the value of electricity. I also teach about the business from a market perspective. While I will be applying information and insights that I learned from that work, none of my electricity business clients support this website.
However, I expect to harvest revenue to support this site from:
- Generic Advertising
- Grants and Sponsorships
If anyone knows how to get money from the infamous Koch Brothers, please send me contact information! I would be delighted to relieve them of funds.
