ExxonMobil “Investing” $100M in Gov’t Research to Lower Emissions

Thought Piece I cannot keep from wondering: How much the “Big Green Machine” has given to aid government research in lowing emissions? Oh, that’s right,they spend their billions on preventing any private sector from investing their own money on research and infrastructure upgrade. Economic development isn’t the BGM’s problem or in their “best interests.” “Historical empathy [...]

In fact, the EU ETS has been an abject failure since its inception in 1997 and its implementation in 2009. Also, CA's trading scheme is just another [...]

Cuomo vs. New York

Thought Piece Credibility Means Something Even in New York In New York's media, there have been so much under-informed writing and reporting about fracking it makes the cognoscenti of unconventional oil downright embarrassed. Defying intellectualism, I suppose because Fracking sounds bad and involves fossil fuel. I don't "believe" in today's environmental activism. And, I don't believe [...]

Enbridge acquires Ohio line to serve Toledo gas users

Thought Piece As a lifelong private sector advocate, I have been an active witness to several states like Pennsylvania, West Virginia and emerging NG Ohio, who are endowed with vast amounts of unconventional oil and the necessary private capital, to become a shining symbol of the US Energy Renaissance in 2019.
