There’s something incredibly wrong when the ordinary citizens of a neighborhood are robbed through taxation to subsidize electric vehicles for the wealthy.
Electric vehicle (EV) subsidies are an often-overlooked yet pernicious example of handouts to the wealthy disguised as environmentalism.
The federal government provides tax credits of up to … Continue

Hydraulic fracturing is apparently confusing for some judges, while pipelines are cause for civil war in Canada. DEP data, though, is cause to celebrate.
It has been nearly two weeks since Judge Musmanno, writing for the Pennsylvania Superior Court, ruled in the case of Briggs v. Southwestern Energy Company that the Pennsylvania “Rule of Capture” does not apply to hydraulic fracturing situations, and confusion still reigns.
For the… Continue

Paul Driessen exposes the hypocrisy and double standards of environmentalists, whose concerns seem to disappear when “green” energy is involved.
It’s a good thing environmentalists have double standards – or they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
Empire State legislators worry that anything above the current 0.0001% methane in Earth’s atmosphere will cause catastrophic climate change, and that pipelines will disturb wildlife habitats. So they oppose… Continue

Have we lost our minds? A Rhode Island offshore wind project will cost $10,000 per kilowatt, roughly 10 times the cost of a modern natural gas power plant.
Off of the shore of Block Island on the Rhode Island coast, five wind turbines are operating and supplying power to the island. It took years of state and federal policymaking, environmental impact assessments, and town hall meetings for the 30-megawatt wind farm to come to fruition due to its cost and… Continue

The DCNR land grab scandal I wrote about here a few weeks ago, is getting worse. As I noted then, this poorly executed scam to ripoff the taxpayers offers a perfect… Continue

Finally, the natural gas industry is taking the offense against corrupt, demagogic governors such as Andrew Cuomo who are abusing water certification rules.
Five natural gas trade associations representing pretty much the entire natural gas industry (producers, suppliers, pipelines and local gas utilities) sent a joint letter to President Trump on Tuesday asking the President to clarify the role of states in administering Clean Water Act Section 401.… Continue

Constitution Pipeline, having been double-crossed by Andrew Cuomo’s DEC, is taking its case to the very top in an effort to call out New York’s dirty tricks.
Constitution Pipeline was double-crossed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

The William Penn Foundation is using money made in chemicals to buy virtue, together with a playground for elites; a playground where we are but quiet serfs.
There’s nothing elites despise more than the rabble. Oh, they sing a tune of noblesse oblige to be sure, but you won’t find them at War-Mart. They view us as deplorables to be managed and kept at a distance. They see the beauty of the places we call home—the places we have to make a living—and… Continue
