The Energy Information Administration reports natural gas-fired electricity generation continues to increase as CO2 emissions continue to drop as a result.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported yesterday that natural gas-fired electricity generation is up again and continues to grow. Meanwhile, our CO2 emissions are down to 1992 levels when our Gross Domestic Product was but a third of what it is today. It’s no coincidence.

Narcissistic Anti-Pipeline Extremists Undermining Their Own Cause

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

  

Anti-pipeline extremists are slowly destroying their own movement, such as it is, by their attention-starved narcissistic behavior. They are off the rails.

Reality and facts are taking a real toll on the “Keep It in the Ground” movement.

Last May, citing the need to “store and deliver natural gas to a greater number of New Hampshire customers,” the New Hampshire State Senate endorsed the “Granite Bridge” pipeline project by a vote of 22 to 2, including all 10 Democrats. Among those Democrats was noted environmentalist Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, who called the pipeline “a smart, responsible and forward-looking approach to meeting our state’s energy needs.”

Developer of the proposed Ulster County 20 megawatt power plant fired back at “several inaccurate assertions” made by the County Executive.

Another case of irrational fossil fuel hatred has cropped up in (surprise!) New York State, in Ulster County (Hudson Valley area). This time the hater is Democrat County Executive Michael Hein. He doesn’t want a teeny tiny 20 megawatt gas-fired electric generating plant because he’d rather have thousands of acres plastered with solar panels and/or windmills, to produce the same drop of electricity this small gas-fired plant would produce.

President Trump Blasts Germany Over Nord Stream 2 Deal

President Trump calls out German Chancellor Angela Merkel over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline deal she made with Russia, calling it “very inappropriate.”

President Donald Trump kicked off the 2018 NATO summit by blasting Germany over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline deal.  At the opening reception, Trump declared:

“We are protecting Germany, we are protecting France, we are protecting all of these countries and then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia where they are paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.  I think that is very inappropriate.”

The Western press was stunned.  CNN posted as its website headline “Trump starts visit by insulting allies.”

Tom Wolf Administration Pushing Special Interest Solar Ripoff

Tom Wolf has joined hands with special interests to promote a costly solar ripoff scheme that would have Pennsylvania copy the failed German Energiewende.

Yesterday, Tom Wolf’s DEP put out a news release asking for comments on a proposed solar ripoff plan forged hand in hand with the help of the usual suspects; PennFuture, the Clean Air Council, the Delaware Riverkeeper, SolarCity, et al. Entitled “Pennsylvania’s SolarFuture Plan,” the document identifies PennFuture and Tesla/SolarCity as two of 15 “committed partners.”

This solar ripoff tries to make the case for getting 10% of Pennsylvania’s electric power from solar energy in 2030 by forcing its subsidization across the board by ratepayers and taxpayers. It’s an outrageous proposal intended to ape New York State and Germany where electricity prices have skyrocketed with nothing to show for it in terms of reducing emissions.

Superior Court’s Political Decision Voiding Rule of Capture Challenged

A PA Superior Court decision authored by a senior (retired) judge was a foolish attempt at policy-making threatening havoc over the rule of capture. SWN is suing.

Something very wrong happened in Pennsylvania’s Superior Court earlier this year as a mere two judges decided to get into policy-making and completely blew it on something called the rule of capture.

The Superior Court is an intermediary appeals court officially described as follows:

The Superior Court hears appeals in criminal cases and most civil cases from the Common Pleas Courts, including matters involving children and families.

Asking criminal and family law attorneys to decide oil and gas legal issues is a recipe for havoc and that’s what’s happened. Fortunately, Southwestern Energy (SWN) is challenging the result.

Patagonia Pushes Trendy Ideology for High-Ticket Profits

…. 

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.
