Hurricane Politics, Like Fractivism, Is No Substitute for Reason

Hurricane politics on display with Harvey, like fractivism, simply ignores the evidence and pushes reason and science to the side to exacerbate the problem.

A hurricane hit the Texas coast in 1900 and became the deadliest natural disaster in US history with a death toll range from 6,000 to 12,000. Granted, hurricane science was not well developed, nor was there proper communication channels available to give much of an advanced warning about a possible storm,…

The High Price of Energy Political Correctness in New York

No state, other than California, is more politically correct than New York, where PC is gospel and energy political correctness reaches the lunatic fringe.

The winds of political correctness always stir first in either California or New York, the two lunatic fringe states of the union. New York also has an additional element of corruption on the order of Illinois, making it the king of the hill when it comes to wacky environmentalism. Energy political…

The Virginia Organizing Hustle: Another Fractivist Tool at Work

Virginia Organizing is another phony political outfit masquerading as a charity with no regard for the law while making itself a fractivist tool for others.

The California Energy Policy: Robbing Pete to Pay Paul

California energy policy is no smarter than New York’s, robbing natural gas to pay for new renewables and raising energy prices for every Californian.

The La Paloma natural gas plant in California filed for bankruptcy last December because it was not getting enough operating time to cover its costs due to solar and other renewable energy receiving preference. The plant, which serves as back-up to the state’s renewable generating technologies, was also denied…

Disruptive Technologies, Not Electric Vehicles, Are Killing OPEC

Electric vehicles aren’t going to reduce our demand for oil and gas; OPEC has much more to fear from new disruptive technologies employed in the industry.

OPEC is on the defense. Built on the principle of collusion with other nations and now engaged in yet another such effort to regain the market by setting limits on production, they are…

Cuomo Energy Scheme Raises Energy Costs and Emissions

The Wall Street Journal did a wonderful editorial this week pointing out how pursuing an ideological energy strategy is raising energy costs and emissions.

I’m not that big a fan of the Wall Street Journal these days, but the its editorial board just came out with one of the best pieces I’ve seen on how Governor Andrew Corruptocrat is destroying Upstate New York, while raising both energy costs and emissions. The pie, …

Governor Hogan Flips the Switch on Natural Gas Stance with CHP

A new CHP system designed to cut a hospital’s emissions in half and run at 80% efficiency is being touted by the Gov., even when it is gas powered. 

Energy efficiency is a constantly moving goal that we are always aiming to hit. New technologies are always evolving to stretch a kilowatt a bit further or to do just do more with less. The natural gas industry has been a head of this for years with new technologies to revitalize formerly dead wells or in a…

The Guilt-Ridden Elites Behind Fractivism

If early reviews are any indication, a new book by the tile of Uneasy Street helps expose the fragile egos of the guilt-ridden elites behind fractivism.

There are two parts to the fractivist movement, such as it is. There are the malcontents drawn to radical causes as a form of life-long rebellion and, then, there are guilt-ridden elites who enable them, largely through funding.

The former are well-known within small circles and they’re often found…

Fantastic news to report!

Wild-Eyed Eric Schneiderman Takes Russian Oil Money?

It’s hard to imagine a more despicable demagogic pol than Eric Schneiderman, New York’s wild-eyed Attorney General and NRDC shill. But, Russian oil money?

Eric Schneiderman may be the nastiest, most under-handed politician in America. He promotes and does the dirty work of the NRDC gang. He harasses tiny communities with the nerve to favor…

Why Are Fractivists Ignoring Solar Panel Wastes?

As government massively subsidizes solar energy, no one, especially not fractivists, is paying any attention to solar panel waste issues, which are serious.

Solar panel waste will become a major issue in the coming decades as old solar panels reach the ends of their useful lifespans and require disposal. Last November, Japan’s Environment Ministry issued a warning that the amount of solar panel waste Japan produces each year is likely to increase from 10,000…

Justice Delayed Leaves Only Fracking Victims Upstate

Upstate New York is wasteland of fracking victims denied economic opportunity by fractivist miscreants.  

Justice delayed has no time stamp; there are only victims and, in the case of my part of Upstate New York, the Southern Tier, they’re fracking victims. It is sad when people such as Steingraber, Ingraffea, Ruffalo, Gore and lower-on-the-totem-pole provocateurs and purveyors of misinformation (e.g., Fox, Forpeace, Scoggins, Huston, Stevens) uncareingly go to war against struggling…

Posted by Thomas J Shepstone on October 22, 2017 at 6:26am 0 Comments
