Indoctrinated Children Say the Darndest Things

….
…. 

Indoctrinated children are being taught at an early age to believe fracking is polluting the water and air, overlooking the actual facts of the matter. 

Children can say the darndest things. We all have had the pleasure of hearing a child say or explain something that was funny, unbeknownst to them. For a while, there were even a few television shows that highlighted the cuteness of what they may say about a variety of topics.

100% Renewable Energy Plan: Junk Science at Its Best

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

A new retort to a 100% renewable energy plan exposes all of the flaws with the assumptions the author made to prevent ill-advised legislation.

Politicians, like all actors, thrive to be center stage and maintain their celebrity status on key issues. They’ll disregard the facts with abandon to secure an audience and hype up pretty much any situation. Opportunism is their stock-in-trade. Any topic can be hijacked with complete disregard for the truth at any time and faster than a speeding bullet. Successful activist groups grasp this better than most and exploit politicos and other actors at will. Such has been the case several times with fracking and most recently with Mark Jacobson’s ridiculous renewables plan.

Annapolis Landfill Solar Farm; Do Renewables Have A Place?

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers

….
…. 

Annapolis is moving forward with a solar farm on a closed landfill. Solar has baggage compared to natural gas, but this may be a more practical approach.

Adaptive reuse projects are a hot trend at the moment. Everyone with a Pinterest account is scouting out and driving up the value of pallets and mason jars to create some rustic topic piece for their home. I am guilty of this too. My wife calls me a hoarder, but you never know when you may need something for a project.

The Skeptical Environmentalist is Right about the Paris Accord

….
…. 

There has been a lot of talk from both sides of the issue on the impact of the Paris Accord. The best reason for backing out comes from an environmentalist.

John Dewey, an American philosopher and psychologist, once stated “Skepticism: the mark and even the pose of the educated mind.” I believe this is true in every sense. Not to overshadow a healthy dose of faith, skepticism is vital to understanding oppositional understanding and to better understand your own ideas.

The USGS Finds Fracking is Not Contaminating Groundwater

….
…. 

Fracking is not contaminating groundwater according to the USGS; a fact that has been proven enough to sound like a broken record.

What does it take to change someone’s opinion on a subject? Many people believe the moon landing was fake and not even Buzz Aldrin could convince them otherwise. Some people still hold on to the misconception that vaccines cause autism based on one completely discredited study. Today’s climate is so torn, we spent weeks last year debating if a dress was blue or white and even after the designer showed the dress in better light, people still argued about it.

A Warning for Scotland: Push Forward on Natural Gas

….
…. 

Scotland is in the middle of a fracking fight and it is eerily similar to what we’ve see in some parts of the US. A warning: now is the time to push forward.

A few months ago Daniel Markind wrote here about American Liquefied Natural Gas making its way to Scotland. Ineos, a large petrochemical company, brought the LNG into that country after Scottish lawmakers passed a non-binding ban on fracking last June, taking advantage of their reluctance to get with the program.

California is Being Sabotaged by Special Interest Groups

….
…. 

California has a lot to offer, but it is often subject to closed-door arrangements through “sue and settle” tactics that leave the public in the dark.

California is a beautiful place to visit. 7 years ago, my wife and I spent our honeymoon traveling San Francisco, Napa Valley, and of course, Yosemite National Park. Not only was the weather perfect for our stay in each location, but also the scenery was incredible.

China is Importing American LNG; What’s Good for the Goose…

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers

….
…. 

We have struck a deal with China to allow for long-term contracts for liquid natural gas imports. It’s truly great news for us and the environment.

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander or, as it was said in one of its original forms, “what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.” Cited as far back as 1678 in John Ray’s English Proverbs, the phrase has evolved from its origin with respect to husband and wife to common usage today to describe something equally good for another party, despite any irrelevant differences between the parties. It applies nicely, too, to what’s happening with LNG exports to China from the US.

Chesapeake Bay Doing Better, Despite Fractivist Claims

….
…. 

Fracking operations in Pennsylvania are often cited as a cause of degradation to the Chesapeake Bay; however, the Bay is improving and we’re still fracking.

One of my favorite times of year is the beginning of summer in Maryland. While the weather ranges from freezing cold to scorching hot every day, watermen become more and more active on the Chesapeake Bay. Their daily hauls of blue crabs are what put Maryland on the map. After all, you never order a Delaware crab cake.

Maryland Has A Bad Case of Tunnel Vision

….
…. 

A proposed Maryland wind farm demonstrates the state’s tunnel vision on the subject of energy as it prioritizes political correctness over common sense. 

The Marine Corps taught me many important lessons that I carry with me today. As a Marine Firefighter, we trained and prepared for the worst. At a moment’s notice, a crew of 20 year olds could be ripped from our routine and be the first responders to a crash on the airfield. Training for this situation was intense as we had to learn how to remain calm, so as to be able to evaluate the situation and avoid tunnel vision.
