The Clean Power Plan Is Another Big Rock Candy Mountain

The Clean Power Plan doesn’t accomplish much of anything for climate and emissions, but it does expose environmentalist groups’ very foolish utopian mindset.  

There is an old adage that says “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” It’s sound advice in many ways. You need to know what your competition is doing and understand their mindset to appreciate how they come to choose certain actions and what they’re likely to do next.

….
…. 

After years of construction and battles against activists, Maryland’s Cove Point LNG Export facility is set to come online this quarter. 

It has been a long and bumpy ride for Maryland in the last few years in regards to natural gas. Since moving to Maryland in late 2008, there has been no shortage of confusion, delusion, and hope that the state will make the right call for our economic future.

Natural Gas Protein: The New “It’s What’s for Dinner” Meal?

….
…. 

A new protein derived from feeding bacteria a methane-laced solution is being used to help feed farm animals and maybe soon, humans. 

Food supplies around the world can sometimes be scarce. Natural resources may not be adequate in some areas with increasing human population or as we are seeing in toleration dictatorships such as North Korea or Venezuela, the scarcity is a combination of situations that lead to the starvation of people.

Emissions Are Down as New Technologies Increase Production

Fractivists

….
…. 

Air quality and greenhouse gas emissions have improved to 30-year lows. This is due to the increased use of natural gas and industry investment. 

There is no doubt about it, the air we are breathing is cleaner than it has been in nearly thirty years. This is not because of government forced regulation or from the onslaught of environmentalists’ pressures, but rather, it is largely in thanks to natural gas.

Australia’s Demand for Renewables Drives Energy Prices Way Up

….
…. 

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target is producing more renewable energy; however, their energy prices are now the most expensive in the world. 

Since the dawn of the shale natural gas revolution, we have watched how quickly energy prices have fallen, how our carbon emissions have dropped, and how our own economy has grown. It has been amazing to watch new technological breakthroughs increase production and reduce operational costs.

Refineries and Pipelines Already Coming Back Online After Hurricanes

….
…. 

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma caused a temporary halt in energy production, but oil and gas companies’ preparation has us quickly moving forward.

Information technology professionals are some of the best at recognizing system failures and understanding that if their server or network goes offline, business will come to a screeching halt. To mitigate this potential disruption, they create backups to the backups and look for ways to keep the systems running all while mitigating the downtime of the original systems.

South Miami Goes Wild and Mandates Solar Panels for New Roofs

….
…. 

South Miami politicians have passed a law requiring new roofs to include solar panels, putting politically correct ideology ahead of both liberty and reason.   

Florida is a beautiful state. Having lived there for a few years, I fell in love with the Sunshine State, as you were close to major metropolitan areas as well as places that seem to not changed since the Jurassic Period. It is a favorite destination for tourism and retirement; unique in every capacity you can imagine, especially politics. And, South Miami seems to have gone wild in that regard.

Hurricane Politics, Like Fractivism, Is No Substitute for Reason

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

Hurricane politics on display with Harvey, like fractivism, simply ignores the evidence and pushes reason and science to the side to exacerbate the problem.   

A hurricane hit the Texas coast in 1900 and became the deadliest natural disaster in US history with a death toll range from 6,000 to 12,000. Granted, hurricane science was not well developed, nor was there proper communication channels available to give much of an advanced warning about a possible storm, but deadly storms such as this Category 4 storm have been around since the dawn of time. Hurricane politics, like fractivism, hasn’t been around quite that long, but its practitioners seem determined to dispense with all reason and science in pursuit of their campaigns.

Disruptive Technologies, Not Electric Vehicles, Are Killing OPEC

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers

….
…. 

Electric vehicles aren’t going to reduce our demand for oil and gas; OPEC has much more to fear from new disruptive technologies employed in the industry.   

OPEC is on the defense. Built on the principle of collusion with other nations and now engaged in yet another such effort to regain the market by setting limits on production, they are rightly worried about their future. Nevertheless, despite what many would have us believe, electric vehicles (EVs) have little to do with their worry. They are no threat at all compared to the disruptive technologies that have been and are being developed in the oil and gas industry.

Governor Hogan Flips the Switch on Natural Gas Stance with CHP

….
…. 

A new CHP system designed to cut a hospital’s emissions in half and run at 80% efficiency is being touted by the Gov., even when it is gas powered. 

Energy efficiency is a constantly moving goal that we are always aiming to hit. New technologies are always evolving to stretch a kilowatt a bit further or to do just do more with less. The natural gas industry has been a head of this for years with new technologies to revitalize formerly dead wells or in a recent case study, being used to save a hospital half a million dollars per year.
