Some political decisions are an ‘earthquake’ in changing political paradigms. This one could hit more like a tsunami, washing away all sorts of perceptions that have built up over decades.
For decades, we’ve been battered with messages about how fossil fuels are an existential threat to the existence of life as we know it. The eco zealots’ End Is Nigh religious messaging has literally been telling us we need to ‘turn or burn’ for years now.
AOC even used the most extreme interpretation of IPCC numbers to tell us the world would be past saving in 12 short years.
As for nuclear energy, Lisa Simpson has been opposed to Mr. Burns and his nuclear plant for what, 33 years now?
The European Parliament on Wednesday backed EU rules labelling investments in gas and nuclear power plants as climate-friendly, throwing out an attempt to block the law that has exposed deep rifts between countries over how to fight climate change.
The vote paves the way for the European Union proposal to pass into law, unless 20 of the bloc’s 27 member states decide to oppose the move, which is seen as very unlikely.

If the new rules go through, and it looks like they will, Lisa Simpson will officially be on the wrong side of the Green Energy issue while Mr. Burns will be the good guy.
The people who have been smugly driving around in electric cars powered by coal are absolutely beside themselves.
They don’t seem to grasp the significance of incremental improvements. They don’t understand that American use of clean coal is better than other countries’ use of dirty coal plants. Or that energy produced by natural gas is cleaner than energy produced by coal plants. Or that nuclear power produces no carbon emissions at all.
The EPA understood this dynamic. That’s why they were planning to compel power producers to shift their balance of energy production away from coal and toward natural gas or wind/solar before SCOTUS told them they were acting beyond their authority to make such demands.
This puts Biden in a tough spot. He has been shutting down fracking in the US because he is in completely in the pocket of the eco-lobby. But if even Europe starts calling natural gas a ‘green’ option, what justification will he muster to continue standing in the way of fracking?
The irony is, we at ClashDaily could hardly be called ‘eco warriors’ but we’ve been calling for the increased production of nuclear power for a long time.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
