Pipeline Infrastructure Crucial for Economy

Gene BarrGene Barr

 ….

 

Pipeline infrastructure will give Pennsylvania’s economy the boost needed to create much needed jobs and supply low cost natural gas to millions of homes and businesses.

Pennsylvania’s economy continues to face headwinds. Unemployment has increased over the past year – now higher than the national average – with most jobs losses coming in the blue-collar construction, manufacturing and mining sectors. Policymakers and regulators can help stem this tide by enacting pro-growth policies, and that starts with building out infrastructure and authorizing the construction of several major pipeline projects.

Post Carbon Institute Fellow Takes Another Run at Fracking

Post Carbon Institute shill Brian Schwartz uses his perch at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to put out another shoddy attack on fracking.

Brian S. Schwartz is a fellow at the Post Carbon Institute. He’s also associated with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He has used his position to push out one piece of junk science after another attacking anything to do with gas drilling or fracking. That’s no coincidence. Today, he released yet another junk science study suggesting shale development produces migraines, fatigue and sinus problems.

Marcellus Shale Drillers Can Make Money at VERY Low Prices

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

Marcellus Shale drillers have mastered the conditions and the technology for economically developing natural gas in the region (and making money).

The ace reporters and analysts at Natural Gas Intelligence (NGI) recently came through yet another quarterly earnings season with their sanity mostly intact. I work with NGI expert analyst Patrick Rau on occasion. Pat is a terrific guy and one of the sharpest energy analysts I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. He sat through dozens of quarterly earnings calls for drillers, oilfield services companies and more over the past month or so. What did Pat learn from all those calls? Well, that Marcellus Shale drillers (and Utica drillers) have so improved their drilling and fracking techniques as to be able to make money at extraordinarily low prices.

Yes, Natural Gas Service Saves Lives

A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research proves natural gas service saves lives, just as New York City asserted years ago.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) just proved exactly what former Mayor Mike Bloomberg said about New York City air quality. Natural gas service saves lives. The NBER study, found here behind a pay wall, examines the impact of natural gas service on a developing country – Turkey. “The expansion of natural gas services has caused significant reductions in both the adult and the elderly mortality rates,” Moreover, “the expansion of natural gas networks has indeed led to a significant improvement in air quality.” What a revolting development for fractivists!

Grassroots is Just a Fractivist Buzzword

Fractivists continue to use catchy buzzwords like grassroots, but in reality, they’re just trying to hide major funding and push ideology over truth.

Many fads, phrases, slogans and colloquialisms characterize our language and society. They tend to pop up and quickly die off, only to return a year or two later in sadistic phases that remind us somethings are better left in the past, just like Crystal Pepsi and bell-bottoms.

Bill McKibben’s Unfinished Business

UPDATE: Marita will focus on this subject on her America’s Voice for Energy radio show this Thursday morning, August 25 at 11:00 AM ET on AmericasWebRadio.com. Within a few days thereafter, the archive will be available for indefinite online listening/podcast. Check it out!

Using inaccurate data that shows a rise in methane emissions, published by known fracking opponents, Bill McKibben is pushing to ban fracking.

What is the “biggest unfinished business for the Obama Administration?” According to a report from Bill McKibben, the outspoken climate alarmist who calls for all fossil fuels to be kept in the ground, it is “to establish tight rules on methane emissions” emissions that he blames on the “rapid spread of fracking.”

McKibben calls methane emissions a “disaster.” He claims that “methane is much more efficient at trapping heat than carbon dioxide” and that it does more damage to the climate than coal. Methane, CH4, is the primary component of natural gas.

Colorado Fracking Debate Leaves Common Sense Behind

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

 

Rabid anti-fossil fuel activists are employing every tactic in their well-funded arsenals to ban Colorado fracking…and all oil and gas production. Where’s the common sense?

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has given the USA and world centuries of new petroleum supplies, lowered energy prices for manufacturers, motorists and consumers, and altered geopolitics for the Middle East, Russia and Venezuela. New natural gas supplies provide low-cost petrochemical feed stocks, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by fueling electrical generating plants – which you’d think would be good news for climate alarmists.

But naturally, those who inhabit environmentalism’s loonier fringes have gone into overdrive. They used to support natural gas. However, now that they’ve shut down many American coal mines and coal-burning power plants, they’re against it.

More Distortion from StateImpactPA

John Quigley - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

 ….

 

There is no end to the bias that comes from StateImpactPA, revealed again in an article about oil and gas industry air emissions. StateImpactPA is a fractivist shill.

StateImpactPA continues to distort the facts on natural gas. That’s what the Heinz Endowments and William Penn Foundation pay them to do. If I sound like  broken record on that point, I can’t help it. They keep playing the same song over and over again, with little attention to detail, a whole lot of bias and, always, always, quotes from their sister fractivist shill groups. They know exactly what they’re doing and John Hanger caught them at it last week. The story today, though, is what they’re doing to distort the air emissions record of the industry. Pennsylvania’s DEP hasn’t helped either.

It’s Time to Speed Up Pipeline Approvals!

Publisher: Tri-State Shale Traveler

It’s time we insisted on faster pipeline approvals from FERC and state agencies. The benefits are too great to be sacrificed to fractivist delay tactics.

My company, Noise Solutions, helps soundproof compressor buildings on pipelines. I’ve learned, accordingly, just how important these facilities are, not only to me but others. They are simply critical for delivering urban energy and rural jobs. They’re also being built to the highest of environmental and safety standards. It’s time we ended the unconscionable delays in pipeline approvals and speeded up the process.

New Brunswick Fracking Indecision Inexcusable

New Brunswick Shale - Resource Wise New Brunswick ReportsLynn Farmakoulas
Spokesperson/Communications Director
Resource Wise New Brunswick

… 

Indecision about New Brunswick fracking by the government is wasting what’s in the cart, letting the cart rot, and shooting the horse.  

Since being elected in the Fall of 2014 the Gallant Liberal government has had exactly two decisive moments: announcing a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in December 2014 and announcing an indefinite moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in May of 2016. The Liberal government’s plan to raise revenue in the province so far has been to hike the harmonized sales tax we pay on goods and services. Unlike our sister province of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick is sitting on possibly the largest deposit of shale gas in Canada. So, when Nova Scotia announced a moratorium it was a “meh” moment. In New Brunswick, it’s a serious matter.
