Why Is the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Not Getting the Attention It Deserves?

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline is one of Russia’s grandest hopes, something to make a weak Europe ever more dependent on itself. Why is it being ignored?

As we approach Independence Day, the disconnect between what is reported in the press and what the world situation actually is remains very curious.

Yesterday, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough and Council of Foreign Relations President Richard Haass bemoaned the fact President Donald Trump is eviscerating the post-World War II order and not replacing it with anything.  Haass said we voluntarily are giving up our international position of primacy.  One wonders if Mr. Haass has spent much time looking at Nord Stream 2, the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukraine, Russia and the Baltic States.

Rabid Anti-Fossil Fuel Activists Threaten US Energy Leadership and Our Livelihood

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

….
…. 

Paul Dreissen shows how anti-fossil fuel activists are undermining the ability of the US to rebuild its energy independence, theatening our livelihoods.

You can understand their frustration, as the steady stream of radical environmentalist successes during the Obama years has been replaced with endless setbacks. Oil, gas and coal leasing, permits and production have risen significantly. Big Green just lost its first Big Cities v. Big Oil climate change shakedown lawsuit. President Trump pulled the USA out of the economy-wrecking, all-pain-no-gain Paris Climate Treaty and will soon nominate another Supreme Court justice.

The fracking revolution (horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing) not only slipped in under their radar. The technology they absolutely detest has utterly destroyed their mantra that the world is rapidly running out of petroleum – and now is helping create millions of jobs, generate billions in government revenues, launch a petrochemical resurgence, and turn the United States into an oil and gas exporter!

The natural gas Industry took some of its most valued suppliers and biggest job creators out to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Railriders ball game.

The event was coordinated for a fourth year by Cabot Oil & Gas.

…  

Thomas Pyle spoke at the Think About Energy briefing about the importance of a smart energy policy so the United States can be energy independent.

I don’t get out to Pennsylvania as much as I’d like, but when I do I always appreciate the warm welcome — and the good food — so thanks for inviting me today.

As was mentioned in the introduction, I proudly serve as the President of the Institute for Energy Research and our advocacy arm, the American Energy Alliance. Our mission is to be a principled and effective voice in the energy policy arena, mainly at the federal level, but increasingly at the state level as well.

The Madness of Energy Virtue Signaling and Its Purveyors

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

The “Keep-It-in-the-Ground” movement is getting the token attention of the Democratic National Committee. This energy virtue signaling is pure madness.

Vowing to “walk the walk” on climate change, the Democratic National Committee last week voted unanimously to ban all political contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industries.

Fortunately for all involved, the resolution did not call on the DNC members to ban the use of oil and natural gas, otherwise the delegates would have been forced to “walk the walk” all the way home from their Executive Committee meeting in Rhode Island.

The Constitution Pipeline Keeps Banging at the Door

The tenacity of the Constitution Pipeline folks in not giving up and continuing the good fight is one of the best signs the pipeline industry now gets it.

Seems like a week doesn’t go by that MDN isn’t asked (by someone from Pennsylvania), “Is there any hope of building the Constitution Pipeline through New York?” Our standard response is this: The only way it gets built is: (a) NY elects a new governor favorable to the industry–about a 1% chance of that happening, (b) President Trump issues an Executive Order overriding Cuomo’s blockade of Constitution (and other pipeline projects)–maybe a 10% chance of that happening, or (c) the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) reconsiders a decision to not overrule NY’s move to block the project–maybe a 15% chance.

Politics and Wild Assertions Are A Toxic Energy Mix

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.

Dan Markind says “we need as a society to decide what our future energy mix will be, not by judicial fiat” or flinging wild assertions toxic to civil debate.

For the second time in two months, a lead energy story comes from Canada.

On Monday, newly elected Ontario Premier (Governor) Doug Ford announced that he immediately would dismantle Ontario’s carbon cap and trade system.  Mr. Ford gave no specifics, but his announcement put $2.9B (Canadian) in carbon tradable allowances in limbo.  Already California, which was integrating its system with Ontario’s, announced it would no longer accept or trade Ontario carbon credits.  Quebec stopped as well.

The Era of Resistance to Fracking is Coming to an End

Economies are booming as the United States reaches energy independence, leaving those who still oppose fracking out in the cold and importing expensive Russian gas.

This may be the last article I will write in defense of fracking safety against the false and misleading propaganda of radical environmentalists. That’s because the era of this resistance movement is now over, and the worldwide adoption of this technology is spreading rapidly. It is now viewed as the solution to our energy future.
