The State of Ohio is reaping the benefits of the Shale Revolution; new business, jobs and revitalization are returning Ohio to its glory days.

In another sign that The State of Ohio is reinventing itself, the historical (1904) Dayton Arcade in downtown Dayton is undergoing a $90 million renovation, including a 90,000 Sq. Ft. Business Innovation Center by University of Dayton Business School. Continue reading

The US Clearly Dodged a Bullet with the Paris Climate Accord

When the US withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord the world lost their minds. We now know what was in the agreement and we dodged a bullet! 

During June of last year, what seemed like a majority of the world’s environmental spokespersons lost their minds as newly-elected Donald Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Accord. Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Wenonah Hauter, and other people who incessantly demand our attention, all cried.

RESOURCES

 


In a recent environmental report, Range Resources scored high by continuing to exceed regulatory requirements in methane management.

As You Sow, a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental and social corporate responsibility through shareholder advocacy recently released its annual report, Disclosing the Facts 2017: Transparency and Risk in Methane Emissions. The 2017 report took a new approach and focused on methane emissions management and reporting from some of the most active oil and gas producers. The investor report is designed to promote improved methane management and reporting practices among oil and gas producers.

China’s Gas Demand in Bid to Reduce Emissions Outpaces Its Production

China is putting all the cards on the table to reduce emissions with natural gas, but their demand is much higher than their production capacity.

China is the world’s largest emissions contributor. Images of smog clouding the daily lives of Chinese citizens have become a common scene in the country. It’s a very dreary view as people must walk about their day wearing a facemask – almost as if it has turned into a Chinese OSHA Requirement.

U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions Down Big-Time Since 2005

United States energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have drastically declined since 2005 as natural gas has replaced coal and oil energy sources.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has published a review of energy-related CO2 emissions and the news is great. Although the EIA saw a slight increase in natural gas emissions, due to increased consumption trends, the overall energy-related carbon dioxide emission levels are down. And expected to remain that way through 2019.

Today In Energy reports some 20 gigawatts of new natural gas generated electricity is being added in 2018, with almost a third being built in Pennsylvania.

The shale revolution continues! Rural economic development. Cheap energy for urban America. Clean air for places such as New York City. Reduced emissions of just about everything. New manufacturing jobs. New STEM jobs. New natural gas infrastructure for small towns. Opportunities everywhere. All of this is brought home by a Today In Energy article from last week announcing some otherwise mundane news on natural gas generated electricity.

“We Were Wrong. Methane Isn’t So Bad After All. Sorry.”

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

An academic study on methane goes bad. Will anyone in the press notice? Dan Markind reports and reminds environmentalists to be careful what they wish for.

Earlier today, the Journal of Geophysics Research issued a retraction notice for an article it first published online on April 20, 2017.  In pertinent part, the retraction reads:

“The article, Ren, X., et al. (2017), “Methane remissions from the Marcellus Shale in southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia based on airborne measurements,” has been retracted by the authors because of an error in wind measurements used to calculate methane emissions from the southwest Marcellus Shale region.  The error was discovered by the authors in October 2017…The original wind measurements led to an overestimate of methane emissions from oil and natural gas operations. A reanalysis with corrected winds…is expected to reverse a conclusion of the paper, which had asserted that leakage from oil and natural gas extraction in this region results in a climate penalty compared to the use of coal….”

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

Fractivists

Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

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.”
