Narcissistic Anti-Pipeline Extremists Undermining Their Own Cause

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.”

The Madness of Energy Virtue Signaling and Its Purveyors

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.

Bravo! Judge Calls Out Ecoterrorist As “Narcissistic and Attention-Seeking”

A judge has called out an ecoterrorist by the names that properly attach to many of those we know as fractivists — narcissistic and attention seeking.

Not since John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln has an actor so spectacularly misread his audience.

After assassinating President Lincoln at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C.—and plotting with his coconspirators to simultaneously assassinate three others—the egotistical actor expected to be hailed as a hero by the Confederacy for avenging the South’s recent defeat.

Instead, virtually the entire nation—including most of the Confederacy—railed against Booth, with newspaper editorials labeling him a “madman” and a “wretched fiend.” Even General Robert E. Lee condemned the murder as “deplorable.”

Actor-turned-ecoterrorist Michael Foster made a similar miscalculation about his audience—and suffered a similar fate.

The Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens or UDRBC has called out the DRBC fracking ban as unfair, a theft of property rights, overreach and discrimination.

The proposed ban on natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin by the DRBC is a travesty.  It can be summed up as unfair politics, theft of property rights, overreach with respect to the DRBC Compact, and discrimination across county lines.

Holiday Lighting Is Something We Should Cheer, Not Jeer

Energy Research

….
….  

Environmental Scrooge types jeer at holiday lighting, but it’s actually something to cheer, as a symbol of our energy dynamism and capacity to innovate.

Environmentalists critical of electrified America must have mixed emotions this time of the year. It may be the season of good cheer and goodwill toward all, but it is also the time of the most conspicuous of energy consumption. America the Beautiful is at her best when billions of tiny stringed lights turn the mundane of darkness into magnificent glory. Holiday lighting is a great social offering—a positive externality in the jargon of economics—given by many to all.

Business-Friendly? What A Difference A State Makes!

What a difference a state makes when it comes to being business-friendly and using its resources without breaking the bank and the backs of its citizens.

Wow – what a world of difference. I’m Pennsylvania through and through, but do manage to spend some winter months in lovely Savannah, Georgia. Most of you may think historic buildings and moss-draped oaks, but there’s more to it. The region is an economic dynamo.

Contrast this with Pennsylvania’s lumbering economy and dysfunctional budgeting process. I was reading an article in the morning news and it got me to thinking what a difference a state makes when it comes to ability, attitude, efficiency, business-friendliness and so much else, particularly when it comes to matters of energy.

More to the point, why Is Georgia perceived as pro-business and Pennsylvania as anti-business?

Minnesota Taxpayers Fund Enviro-Terrorist Video Game

Minnesota taxpayers have, in the name of the arts, funded an enviro-terrorist video game named “Thunderbird Strike” built by a Michigan State faculty member.

We’ve all heard our moms say, “It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye,” but for one anti-pipeline activist, it’s all fun and games when somebody loses an eye … or their life.

“Thunderbird Strike,” a video game developed by a Michigan State University assistant professor, allows a player to fly over oil production facilities and earn points by “firing lightning at snakelike pipelines, trucks and other oil industry structures”… and presumably the employees working in or around them.
