The facts are the facts and it’s shale, not renewable energy, that’s allowing the U.S. to reduce carbon dioxide emissions while others merely yap about it.
Carbon dioxide emissions, the largest component of greenhouse gases, have been declining in the United States, mainly due to the shale gas renaissance. Between 2005 and 2016, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions declined by 12 percent. However, China’s carbon dioxide emissions over the same period increased by 50… Continue

FERC has smacked Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” and his DEC hacks yet again in promptly denying a re-hearing request and calling out the state’s duplicity.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has clearly had it with New York, its politically corrupt governor and his environmental political hack, Basil Seggos. Seggos, of course, is Commissioner of the Empire State’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and his job is bend its will to that… Continue

The truth behind the Grant Township injection well controversy is ugly. The parties taking advantage of the Township are totalitarian wannabes out for power.

Shale drilling, whether for oil or gas, has made a huge contribution to world peace and security and it’s time we all recognized it and operated accordingly.
The importance of shale to world peace and security never was more in evidence than during the last two weeks. The fact that very few people know about it underscores why.
As I’ve written before, Saudi Arabia and Iran are locked in a major struggle for control and influence over the Middle… Continue

Radical billionaire Tom Steyer threw money at Tom Wolf’s campaign for Pennsylvania Governor. Is he now treating the governor as his personal bobblehead?
Ever since Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania’s trust-funder governor, suddenly decided to pursue a fracking ban within the jurisdiction of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) I’ve wondered why. It makes no sense whatsoever, as the governing majority of the DRBC (Pennsylvania, New York and the Feds) is exactly the… Continue

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is doing politics in opposing fracking, not conservation, and it has its facts all wrong, thanks to New York’s Tony Ingraffea.
Is the Conservancy of Southwest Florida a real conservation entity or is it a political advocacy organization with only an environmental agenda? The consensus view of conservationism is that it should be a collaborative effort to ensure the economic, environmental preservation and safety of the… Continue

Natural gas substitution for coal in electric power generation has consistently reduced carbon emissions on that score, making it the best of all tools.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) keep count and the score on carbon emissions from electric power generation just keeps getting better. Why? Because natural gas substitution for coal in the electric power sector is sill taking place, reducing emissions associated with coal. EIA, in fact, … Continue

There’s no limit to how low the NRDC gang and friends will stoop to oppose oil and gas development but “Youth Climate Intervenors” is new and really low.

New and emerging technologies are continuously expanding boundaries and improving efficiency and safety in today’s oil field.
This past week, I was given a stack of DVDs filled with client videos that needed to be reviewed. Each DVD contained about 2 gigabytes worth of data and was, at the time, the most effective way of storing this much information. I was able, with a few clicks of the mouse, to transferred 5 years worth of such data onto a micro USB… Continue

The job-killing Sierra Club and other gentry class shills who stopped the Atlantic Sunrise construction for a moment have themselves been killed in court.
When the DC Court of Appeals issued a stay the other day that put 2,500 Atlantic Sunrise workers out of jobs, it seemed a bit strange. The DC Court has not been… Continue

The devastation that hit Puerto Rico is an opportunity to build a new energy future for the Commonwealth with our natural gas, helping us at the same time.

What a difference a state makes when it comes to being business-friendly and using its resources without breaking the bank and the backs of its citizens.
Wow – what a world of difference. I’m Pennsylvania through and through, but do manage to spend some winter months in lovely Savannah, Georgia. Most of you may think historic buildings and moss-draped oaks, but there’s more to it. The region is an economic dynamo.
Contrast this with Pennsylvania’s… Continue
