A rebirth of East Coast refineries that utilize the oil drilling method known as “fracking” is altering the United States’ energy future.
President Obama used discredited "science" in his State of the Union address to push climate change mandates, while threatening to use executive orders if Congress doesn't act.
Information leaked from a report compiled by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that heat from the sun may play a larger role in increasing the Earth’s temperatures than previously thought.
Believe it or not, there is a worldwide Sustainable Development policy not to fund development projects in Third World countries if the projects don’t meet the political agenda. It’s called the Equator Principles.
The story line in the new theatrical release Promised Land is obviously intended to leave audiences with a very dim and scary view of fracking and the companies that use this new method of drilling to tap vast amounts of oil and natural gas that otherwise would be inaccessible. But the depiction in Promised Land is so fantastic that the intent could backfire. Indeed, by the end of the film, moviegoers may be left annoyed and offended by the blatant attack on fracking. Indeed, this reviewer was very annoyed. (Warning: spoilers follow.)
The U.S. government says that in the last 90 days, it instituted nearly 6,000 new rules, with loads more to come. If its plans remain unchecked, we’ll face another economic “cliff.”
The release of a conveniently long-lost report showing that fracking is safe puts New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo in a tight spot: continue to appease environmentalists by delaying further the development of the rich Marcellus Formation under his state, or letting the free market extract those resources and generate thousands of jobs and millions in revenue to the state.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson has announced her resignation after four years at the EPA. Her tenure was marked by controversial policies involving a number of high-profile issues including global warming, the Keystone XL pipeline, and emissions controls on coal-fired plants. And recent scrutiny over Jackson’s use of an alias e-mail account has led some to believe that her resignation was inevitable.
“Green energy” companies supported by Obama have primarily helped create jobs for elected officials and lobbyists in Washington, and profits for Wall Street.
Based on bogus science and flawed computer models, the federal EPA is clamping down on wood burning in Fairbanks and other cities and counties.
