A Reflection on the Wannabe Kings of Environmentalism Activism

Independence Day should be a time of reflection on our Declaration. Lincoln had some thoughts in that regard that apply today to environmental activism.

Environmental activism has, over time, become ever more radical and intolerant. Its adherents are, too, ever more intent upon imposing their will on others (for the latter’s own good, of course). They demand others submit to their views, while posturing either as nature’s protector or the representative of a…

Why Is the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Not Getting the Attention It Deserves?

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline is one of Russia’s grandest hopes, something to make a weak Europe ever more dependent on itself. Why is it being ignored?

As we approach Independence Day, the disconnect between what is reported in the press and what the world situation actually is remains very curious.

Yesterday, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough and Council of Foreign Relations President Richard Haass bemoaned the fact…

Victory! DRBC Loses in Federal Court, Good Guys Advance!

Finally, at long last, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled and it was a clear victory for the good guys and a major defeat for the arrogant DRBC.

When Federal District Court Judge Mariani dismissed the Wayne Land and Mineral Group’s argument that a well pad is not a water project back in March of last year, I noted the following:

The DRBC argued for…

Rabid Anti-Fossil Fuel Threaten US Energy Leadership and Our Livelihood

Paul Dreissen shows how anti-fossil fuel activists are undermining the ability of the US to rebuild its energy independence, theatening our livelihoods.

You can understand their frustration, as the steady stream of radical environmentalist successes during the Obama years has been replaced with endless setbacks. Oil, gas and coal leasing, permits and production have risen significantly. Big Green just lost its first Big Cities v. Big Oil…

Out-of-State Organizers Train Pipeline Protesters in Tunnel Vision

Community organizers financed by elitist tools such as CCAN are training pipeline protesters to trust in tunnel vision and go extremist with their tactics.

Fractivists imagine their irrational concerns are the only ones that matter. That’s why they’re so easy to manipulate, organize and train to do stupid tricks. They have tunnel vision that makes them easier to herd. A couple of examples from Virginia serve to illustrate. One has to do with the Atlantic…

New York State’s Aspiring Hypocrite: Cynthia Nixon

When a role in “Sex and the City” is street cred to run for governor, you know New York is on the ropes, but Cynthia Nixon is also a fracking hypocrite.

New York State is getting worse by the day; there’s no way around it. The state is going off the deep end, becoming more shallow, more politically correct and more radical by the day. It’s in deep trouble, which is why people are leaving and Upstate New York is dying. It’s been a long process and helped along…

The Madness of Energy Virtue Signaling and Its Purveyors

The “Keep-It-in-the-Ground” movement is getting the token attention of the Democratic National Committee. This energy virtue signaling is pure madness.

The Constitution Pipeline Keeps Banging at the Door

The tenacity of the Constitution Pipeline folks in not giving up and continuing the good fight is one of the best signs the pipeline industry now gets it.

Seems like a week doesn’t go by that MDN isn’t asked (by someone from Pennsylvania), “Is there any hope of building the Constitution Pipeline through New York?” Our standard response is this: The only way it gets built is: (a) NY elects a new governor favorable to the industry–about a 1% chance of…

Politics and Wild Assertions Are A Toxic Energy Mix

Dan Markind says “we need as a society to decide what our future energy mix will be, not by judicial fiat” or flinging wild assertions toxic to civil debate.

For the second time in two months, a lead energy story comes from Canada.

On Monday, newly elected Ontario Premier (Governor) Doug Ford announced that he immediately would dismantle Ontario’s carbon cap and trade system. Mr. Ford gave no specifics, but his announcement put $2.9B (Canadian) in…

Maryland’s Elections are Under Attack from Special Interests Groups

Special interest groups like the Sierra Club are endorsing candidates across the state who fall in line with their aggressive ideology.  

The election cycle is in full force all around the country. Many people are taking time to understand their candidates’ platforms. Others, are just happy to wear wool and do what they are told. Sadly, that seems to be the prevailing attitude in Maryland, where special interest politics holds huge sway.

I do not want…

The Era of Resistance to Fracking is Coming to an End

Economies are booming as the United States reaches energy independence, leaving those who still oppose fracking out in the cold and importing expensive Russian gas.

This may be the last article I will write in defense of fracking safety against the false and misleading propaganda of radical environmentalists. That’s because the era of this resistance movement is now over, and the worldwide adoption of this technology is spreading rapidly. It is now viewed as…
