“No Fracking Anywhere” Doesn’t Help the Earth; It Hurts It!

Ill-informed fractivists shouting “No Fracking Anywhere” or “Keep It in the Ground” do nothing to help the Earth; rather, their stupid slogans only hurt it.

Today, Ryedale Against Fracking and others are protesting in London to support the Friends of the Earth case against North Yorkshire County Council’s approval of the Third Energy project to use fracking on a 20-year old current “conventional” gas well pad.

They started with a demonstration outside chanting “No Fracking in North Yorkshire. No Fracking Anywhere.” Some of these protestors are evidently merely selfish, content to displace gas production to others while happy to ignore their own consumption. Others mistakenly see more natural gas production as part of a wider issue that makes it harmful for climate change.

Clean Burning Panda Patriot Goes on Line

Panda Power has now brought the Panda Patriot plant on line; a super-efficient, clean-burning, high-performing energy producer for the modern world.

Last month Panda Power Funds held the official commissioning ceremony to launch the operation of Panda Liberty, a 829-megawatt Marcellus gas-fired electric generating plant in Asylum Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania). It was the world’s first built-from-scratch electric generating plant built specifically to use Marcellus Shale gas.

Yesterday, Panda Power commissioned the world’s second built-from-scratch-to-use-Marcellus-gas electric generating plant: Panda Patriot.

We Have a New President: How Will it Affect Energy and Environmental Issues?

Hydraulic FracturingRichard Goodwin
Environmental Consultant and Engineer
West Palm Beach, Florida

 

Energy and environmental issues have long been solved according to political correctness instead of by experts; with our new President that may change.

The results of 2016 Presidential Election – Republican President [without elected political experience but a successful billionaire developer and entertainment entrepreneur] and Republican Majority in Senate and House of Representatives [enabling appointment of moderate-conservative Supreme Court Justices] – reflects a victory for the private sector and a blow to political correctness. Given this dominance of political philosophy in all branches of government, forthcoming federal legislation and actions should apply fact-based, sound business and economic principles plus peer-review science to address our Energy and Environmental Issues.

Pennsylvania’s New Destructive Energy Policies

Gas Exports - GordonTomb Reports Gordon Tomb
Senior Fellow, Commonwealth Foundation for Public Policy Alternatives

 …

 

The new energy policies of Pennsylvania include forced renewables that will take billions of dollars to support and destroy the economy and jobs as a by-product.

Government policies that direct the production and use of energy are a disaster for Pennsylvania. They have been a disaster, they are a disaster, and unless something changes, they will be a disaster.

There’s NOAA Denying It: Methane Issue Isn’t One

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

The lengths to which some warmists will go to blame natural gas for methane issues is amazing but there’s NOAA denying the industry isn’t the issue.

NOAA–the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration–contains some of the biggest kool-aid drinking man-made global warming fanatics on the planet. So we found it interesting that the mighty NOAA has just released new research that finds yes, so-called “fugitive” methane that escapes into the atmosphere is up–way up. And yes, oil and gas drilling contributes WAY MORE to the fugitive methane problem “than previously thought.” And yes, methane leaks from fossil fuel development represents something like 20-25% of of the total “problem.”

But then those same researchers, in little teeny tiny type add this (emphasis added):

However, the findings also confirm other work by NOAA scientists that conclude fossil fuel facilities are not directly responsible for the increased rate of global atmospheric methane emissions measured in the atmosphere since 2007.

That is, while the shale revolution has grown exponentially over the past 10 years, and while the rate of fugitive methane has grown during that same period–the growth has NOT come from oil and gas development. Instead, it’s coming from rice paddies and cow farts/burps.

Unnecessary Methane Regulations “A War on Natural Gas”

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Tony Ventello just told Congress new EPA methane regulations would hinder a natural gas industry that has already reduced emissions.

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology held a hearing in Washington D.C. on September 15 to discuss the impact of the EPA’s recent methane regulations. It was, appropriately titled as A Solution In Search of a Problem: EPA’s Methane Regulations.

Tony Ventello, Executive Director of the Progress Authority (Bradford and Susquehanna Counties, Pennsylvania) traveled to the capital to be a witness. He was joined by Erik Milito of the American Petroleum Institute, Dr. Bernard Weinstein of the Maguire Energy Institute of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and Elgie Holstein of Environmental Defense Fund.

President Obama’s Climate Legacy: Thanks to Fracking

Even though he had little to do with it and no one wants to admit it, natural gas is the reason for lower emissions, nothing else comes close.

If there’s one thing all environmental groups say they want it is green energy: energy that is sustainable, safe, and can help reduce the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. None of us disagree, as we all want a clean world in which to raise our children and grandchildren. Our activist friends, though, are willing to go far above and beyond reason to spread their message. Their connection with reality is suspect.

Marcellus Gas Delivers “Incredible Opportunity for Development”

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

Marcellus gas is delivering both economic development and clean inexpensive energy to Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, creating a bright future.

It’s been eight long years since energy giant Tenaska (headquartered in Omaha, NE) first proposed building a natural gas-fueled power plant in South Huntingdon (Westmoreland County), Pennsylvania. Marcellus Drilling News reported in April when Tenaska announced that the Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station, a 925-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled power plant project near Pittsburgh, had secured $780 million in funding. Our headline at the time of “Construction Begins…” was a bit premature as the first shovelful of dirt didn’t happen until earlier this week.

Yes, Natural Gas Service Saves Lives

John Quigley - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

 ….

 

A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research proves natural gas service saves lives, just as New York City asserted years ago.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) just proved exactly what former Mayor Mike Bloomberg said about New York City air quality. Natural gas service saves lives. The NBER study, found here behind a pay wall, examines the impact of natural gas service on a developing country – Turkey. “The expansion of natural gas services has caused significant reductions in both the adult and the elderly mortality rates,” Moreover, “the expansion of natural gas networks has indeed led to a significant improvement in air quality.” What a revolting development for fractivists!

Bill McKibben’s Unfinished Business

Fracking – Marita-Noon-4-160x160Marita Noon

UPDATE: Marita will focus on this subject on her America’s Voice for Energy radio show this Thursday morning, August 25 at 11:00 AM ET on AmericasWebRadio.com. Within a few days thereafter, the archive will be available for indefinite online listening/podcast. Check it out!

Using inaccurate data that shows a rise in methane emissions, published by known fracking opponents, Bill McKibben is pushing to ban fracking.

What is the “biggest unfinished business for the Obama Administration?” According to a report from Bill McKibben, the outspoken climate alarmist who calls for all fossil fuels to be kept in the ground, it is “to establish tight rules on methane emissions” emissions that he blames on the “rapid spread of fracking.”

McKibben calls methane emissions a “disaster.” He claims that “methane is much more efficient at trapping heat than carbon dioxide” and that it does more damage to the climate than coal. Methane, CH4, is the primary component of natural gas.
