President Trump’s tariffs on Chinese solar panels are dividing the solar industry and causing activists to go crazy, but it’s a good thing.

Environmentalist activists and others mentally allergic to the name Donald Trump are flipping out over a new tariff on imported solar panels. This move has fractured the solar industry, showing us the two different faces of the solar movement, if you want to call it that.

Nord Stream 2, a Russian pipeline project, is going to increase natural gas market share for the Kremlin, but is it going to become the next Cold War?

Being born in the early 1980’s, I missed out on the majority of the Cold War. Recently, I have been reading a lot about this period of time and how it began, what played out, and the way it ended. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the Cold War has largely been considered over. The way I see it, though, their battle for control over natural gas could be my generation’s Cold War.

No, Natural Gas Isn’t the Source of Increased Methane Levels

The atmosphere is showing signs of increased methane, but contrary to popular belief, it is not natural gas nor fracking that is responsible.

Fractivists have been stretching to link fracking and natural gas to everything they can think of for years. The twisting of facts and intermingling emotions in their propaganda is 101 training for new members. It is almost as is if groups like the Food and Water Watch sit new hires in a dark broom closet and force them to watch some Wenonah Hauter training video on “How to Deceive the Public for Their Own Good.”

Cabot Lawsuit is Anything But An Attack on the First Amendment

….
…. 

Fractivist groups have been attempting to brand lawsuits filed by oil and gas companies as First Amendment issues, but this isn’t even close to being true.

Our founding fathers had outstanding foresight when they began drafting the Constitution. When the Bill of Rights was proposed, several of them were against detailing those rights we now as the Bill of Rights. This was not a case of believing those rights were insignificant, but rather, a fear that detailing such individual rights would limit them to the original 10 (the list had included 12, but only 10 were approved).

Bill McKibben believes the “fossil fuel bubble” is ready to burst and is overvalued; however, he is gambling that he can change the market. 

Investing is really a gambling game. You are placing you’re your money on a bet and a series of strategic steps. If you weigh the odds, and your own instincts, you can stand to win big or lose big.

Despite Chessie, Atlantic Coast Pipeline A North Carolina Game Changer

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline has the potential to drastically improve North Carolina’s economy by supplying much-needed gas at lower prices.

In today’s age, everything is controversial. We have collectively spent countless man-hours debating things that shouldn’t be controversial. Whether the dress is blue, if syrup is a condiment, if Star Wars is living up to the hype (Nope, No, and Yes), there is something for us all to argue about.

New Study Tying Low Birth Weights to Fracking Sites is Junk Science

….
…. 

A new study funded in part by the MacArthur Foundation attempts to link fracking to low birth weights in newborn infants but falls flat.

Once again, we are reading a new study about how fracking is endangering children. Every other year, so it seems, one of these studies comes out and every time it is, in the end, proven to have been just as ridiculous of assertions as the last. Now, it’s low infant birth weights (again), funded (again) by a committee fractivist foundation.

Pseudo-Environmentalist Groups are Nothing Short of a Ponzi Scheme

….
…. 

Environmentalist groups such as the Food and Water Watch are just a Ponzi Scheme and it is more than just investments they are robbing from us. 

When you think of Ponzi Schemes, you most likely think or Wall Street or how Bernie Madoff or Lou Pearlman ripped off their trusting investors. To your credit, you are right, but when you consider the definition of what a Ponzi Scheme is it much more broadly applicable.

New Technologies are Transforming the Digital Oil Field

New and emerging technologies are continuously expanding boundaries and improving efficiency and safety in today’s oil field. 

This past week, I was given a stack of DVDs filled with client videos that needed to be reviewed. Each DVD contained about 2 gigabytes worth of data and was, at the time, the most effective way of storing this much information. I was able, with a few clicks of the mouse, to transferred 5 years worth of such data onto a micro USB storage device that had to be taped to a larger item to ensure I didn’t lose it in the shuffle.

Earthjustice Continues to Spread Fake Facts and Junk Science

….
…. 

Abigail Dillen, an Earthjustice VP, tries spread dirt by reciting junk science and debunked facts about natural gas and it clearly shows.

Those in opposition to natural gas cling to ideas no matter how many times they are discredited. It is the same with anti-vaxers who would rather put their communities and their own children at risk than admit vaccines do not cause autism.
