Patagonia pretends to market clothing for classic outdoors lovers, but it’s really in the virtue signaling business and targets trendy elitists for profits.   

Ray Kroc, the man responsible for so much of McDonalds’ success once gave a speech to Harvard MBA students. He asked the room full of what is thought to be the brightest business students in the Nation, “What business is McDonald’s in?” After rejecting restaurants, hospitality, and a few others, Kroc said,

“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m not in the hamburger business. My business is real estate.”

Patagonia operates similarly, pretending to sell clothes, as it it serves as a virtue signaling service for those who imagine it’s trendy to oppose oil and gas.

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.

Potential peace talks with North Korea is encouraging the opportunist Kremlin to plan new pipelines into South Korea to reduce US market share.   

President Trump’s meeting with the isolated nation of North Korea brings in a lot of potential hopes. Perhaps we can escalate tensions and military presence on the peninsula, maybe we can encourage the ruthless dictator to improve human rights, or perhaps, just maybe, we can reduce sanctions and become a trade partner with the North as we have with the South.

There is a lot of support for the Maryland wind farm project, but unfortunately, it all comes from environmentalists or the pressures they put on others.  

Summer is right around the corner and as we see every year in Maryland, thousands of tourists and state residents will be voyaging to the Great Eastern Shore of Maryland to relax in the sun, enjoy off-shore fishing charters, and many will have just one-too-many drinks at the famous Secrets bar and restaurant.

Science is Fact – Regardless Whether Activists Choose to Believe It, Or Not

“Science, science” is often screamed by those who often refuse to believe it. It is always going to reveal the facts when presented in its entirety.  

Science is a straightforward process of understanding facts, testing and re-testing conclusions, then giving those conclusions to others to test to ensure your conclusions are solid. However, it amazes me that so many areas of science can be contested with false parallels and ideologies.

When the US withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord the world lost their minds. We now know what was in the agreement and we dodged a bullet! 

During June of last year, what seemed like a majority of the world’s environmental spokespersons lost their minds as newly-elected Donald Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Accord. Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Wenonah Hauter, and other people who incessantly demand our attention, all cried.

Methane leaks are mostly insignificant, but while striving to do even better, the oil and gas industry is taking action to further reduce them.

Natural gas advocates spend a good deal of their time answering or rebutting myths. These myths, perpetuated by special interest groups and pseudo-environmentalist groups, are regurgitated repeatedly. Among them is the idea methane emissions are a growing problem.

The Terracotta Army Protesting the Potomac Pipeline

….
…. 

Activist groups across Maryland are protesting the Potomac Pipeline. They’re little more than a terra cotta army of ideologues, shills and virtue signalers.

Virtue signaling “environmentalist groups,” as they self-style themselves, are a dime a dozen in Maryland. They’re seemingly everywhere, in fact, Maryland being a mostly urban state where everyone imagines they have the answers about food and energy they only consume should be produced. You can’t turn around without bumping into a trust-funder with a megaphone. Still, one would think that before setting up yet additional action groups for their personal aggrandizement, these folks might at least identify niche segments of the protest industry they could grab for themselves. But, that would require originality and there’s none of that to be found in serial protesting.

China’s Gas Demand in Bid to Reduce Emissions Outpaces Its Production

…. 

China is putting all the cards on the table to reduce emissions with natural gas, but their demand is much higher than their production capacity.

China is the world’s largest emissions contributor. Images of smog clouding the daily lives of Chinese citizens have become a common scene in the country. It’s a very dreary view as people must walk about their day wearing a facemask – almost as if it has turned into a Chinese OSHA Requirement.
