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…

….
…. 

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.

Fractivists Reaching New and Desperate Lows

….
…. 

We are seeing fractivists’ tactics reaching desperate lows. Ranging from comparing police to Nazis in a new video to blowing up well workers. 

One of the most recognizable faces from history is that of the murderous dictator, Adolf Hitler. We all have been taught or lived through the tragic times of his reign. The atrocities of those under his command will forever be remembered as pure evil. Today, we see people being compared to him all the time. I can’t count the number of times I saw people calling Trump Hitler or any other person that crowd tends to dislike. Recently, those Nazi comparisons took a darker turn and it has caught the attention of the police as they are investigating it as a possible hate crime.

In Just Over a Year, American LNG Reaches Europe Via Poland

…. 

In just under a year, American LNG has reached new markets near and far. Now, we are in Europe by the way of Poland through an historic deal. 

One year doesn’t seem to be a very long time. A year comes and goes quickly for most of us as we get older and time starts to just fly by. However, a lot can happen in a year. We have a new President, a weaker Josh Fox, and have now seen U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas exports fly out of the gate.

Earth Day Ridiculous Celebration of Ideology, Not Science

….
…. 

Under the guise of protecting the earth and ensuring science is being promoted, Earth Day is nothing more than a front for putting ideologies first, science second. 

Earth Day is ridiculous. I am sad to say that, but it is true. Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated as a hippie-like holiday that calls us to do more to protect our environment and our planet. It has become so popular, that even thinking of it as being ridiculous is enough to get you shunned.

Bogus Lawsuit to Expose Trade Secret of Fracking Fluid

….
…. 

A recent lawsuit filed led by the NRDC  is asking the courts to force gas companies to disclose fracking fluid trade secrets which are already widely known. 

The world of intellectual property rights allows for the protection of trade secrets. These secrets are the stuff of legends. Some claim that only two people in the world know the Coca-Cola formula and they are not allowed to fly at the same time.

What If We Did Ban Fracking? What Would We Lose?

….
…. 

Too many environmental groups call for fracking bans not thinking or, more importantly, caring what it would cost Americans. It would be hugely expensive. 

I had an elementary teacher who would refuse to answer a question if you prefaced it with “what if…” and it taught me to be more creative on how to ask questions without using the phrase. The uncertainty of a question that could lead to a never-ending series of others can, of course, be frustrating or intimidating, even, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good exercise for clarifying issues. Such is the case with fracking bans.

Maryland Fracking is Dead on Arrival After Senate Vote

….
…. 

Maryland fracking has had one heck of an uphill battle from the start. Now that we have lost our biggest ally, it is dead on arrival. 

Fracking in Maryland is just about dead. We are one signature away from being the second state to outright ban fracking through legislation after Vermont and as much as it irks me, it’s okay. We will move on and we will continue to have open discussions on why this happened.
