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 [...]

State Policy Options to Price Carbon from Electricity

Thought Piece The Abject Failure of Emissions Trading and Carbon Taxation Both, a carbon tax and cap and trade, have yet to provide a single good example of working. 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.

The Reason Renewables Can’t Power Modern Civilization Is Because They Were Never Meant To

Thought Piece We owe Max Brod. After promising his dear friend Franz Kafka (who was on his death bed) that he wouldn't publish his writing, Max Brod waited for almost a decade before publishing all of his work. The importance of Kafka's writings vs. The promise to a dear friend. We owe Max Brod for his [...]

New Nature Study Affirms the Climate Benefits of Increased Natural Gas Use

Thought Piece New "Nature Magazine" published Study affirms the Climate Benefits of Increased Natural Gas Use The “seminal” piece by Naomi Oreskes, “Merchants of Doubt,” and the “Indirect Health Benefits Study” will certainly be historical embarrassments for Harvard. Bradley Keyes has written a powerful piece that exposes the ongoing mendacity of the Oreskes arguments about climate [...]

Kenney building ‘war room’ to counter environmental groups, negative media coverage of Alberta’s oil industry

Thought Piece To quote the ubiquitous Anonymous: “Environmental activism does not destroy things, but rather it inexhaustibly prevents them from ever coming into being.” It is time for Canada to have an updated discussion about climate, economic development, state of the art of energy technolgy, and thoughtful resource development for all of Canada including its indigenous [...]

Bill Gates Slams Unreliable Wind & Solar: ‘Let’s Quit Jerking Around With Renewables & Batteries’

Thought Piece  Unsurprisingly, the following interview got no media coverage. By the way, Bill Gates has little or no skin in the renewables and battery sector, plus he isn’t singing from the Green Tabernacle Choir hymnal. Historically, the media has acted like a lynch mob, from time to time, and this one of those times.” Anonymous [...]
