* Biden’s Big Lie: ‘Green’ Energy Doesn’t Save Money, It’s 4 to 6 Times MORE Expensive* President Joe Biden keeps claiming that wind and solar energy are going to save money for consumers. But more government subsidies to “renewable energy” is a key feature of the White House anti-inflation strategy recently announced by Biden. He probably got that idea from John Kerry, the administration’s climate czar, who recently claimed that “solar and wind are less expensive than coal or oil or gas.” Pete Buttigieg, the Biden Transportation secretary, makes the same claims about the thousand... read more

Early guns had plenty of range problems right up to the nineteenth century but were adopted because they resolved the training problem alongside the crossbow. Neither could fire as fast as a long bow though so it was on the field until kings gave up training them. It was always a cost probl... read more
