Robert Bradley explains the practice of hydraulic fracturing is not only safe but is actually helping to bolster the American economy.

Our friends at Institute for Energy Research shared this guest post with us, which was written by their founder and CEO, Robert Bradley, Jr. and recently published in Forbes.

Warning: low-cost, clean energy may be hazardous to your health.

Or so say environmental activists who will trot out any line of attack in their crusade against fossil fuels.

For years, the green movement has spread falsehoods about hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — the practice of unlocking hydrocarbons by injecting high-pressure liquid deep into the earth. Lately, the leave-it-in-the-ground lobby has doubled down on its mission to thwart the latest oil and gas extraction techniques.

Energy Poverty Dramatically Decreases with Natural Gas

Developing nations need access to affordable energy; natural gas plays a transformative role in delivering the energy and decrease energy poverty.

Tisha Schuller, Principal at Adamantine Energy and Strategic Advisor for the Natural Gas Initiative at Stanford University, provided this guest post for Well Said Cabot, which also ran in Scientific American on March 3, 2017.

Life without access to energy is simply miserable. The most mundane task, such as heating water to cook rice, can require an entire day’s labor to gather both water and firewood. That labor can be physically exhausting, in some cases immediately dangerous, and often with unfortunate health outcomes. With over one billion people around the world faced with such simple barriers to improving their lives, reducing energy poverty can serve as a shared goal that transcends political, cultural, and regional barriers.

CEGEN: Converting Compression Station Exhaust to Power

A company called Clean Energy Generation (CEGEN) has come up with a design to allow exhaust from natural gas compression stations to be converted to power.

Sometimes an idea come along and makes you think “why didn’t I think of that?” So simple in its workings that you are sure it’s been done before, but turns out it hasn’t. I’m lucky enough to be working with a group of people that have one of these ideas now being pilot tested, proven and for market in the very near future, and it is exciting to say the least!

Delaware Riverkeeper To Do Stupid FERC Trick

Maya van Rossum, THE Delaware Riverkeeper, plans to hold a “People’s Hearing Investigating FERC” to bully FERC into denying pipelines and other projects. 

Though often we’re irritated, sometimes we simply marvel at the arrogance of organizations like THE Delaware Riverkeeper. They honestly think they know better than you what kind of energy you should have the right to buy. The people who run the organization (Maya van Rossum, who is THE self-appointed keeper of the Delaware River Basin), irrationally hate all fossil fuels. Even though Maya & company use those fossil fuels every day of their lives.

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.

ExxonMobil Scores Win Against Today’s Bookburners

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

A federal judge issued ExxonMobil a discovery order to examine records of the MA Attorney General’s office, stating they acted in “bad faith.” 

The table has been turned on Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey and her corrupt co-conspirator, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. A U.S. District Court Judge in Texas has granted Exxon the right to examine “internal phone records, other communications and depositions” related to Healey’s involvement in attempting to persecute ExxonMobil about its speech. Perhaps the judge will also extend his order to NY AG Eric Schneiderman too? That would be terrific.

NGSA Goes to Court to Fight for the Constitution

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

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

 

NGSA filed a brief in federal court and also with the New York DEC to move forward with two critical pipeline projects, including the Constitution.

The Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) has gone into action to support two currently-stalled pipeline projects in the People’s Republic of New York, where Chairman Cuomo rules. Yesterday the NGSA filed a brief in federal court to respond to an effort by the rogues gallery of environmental extremist groups (including Catskill Mountainkeeper, Riverkeeper, Sierra Clubbers and other ne’er–do–wells) to stop the Constitution Pipeline from getting built.

South Australia Learns Renewable Energy Is Not Cheap

….
….

South Australia has found out the hard way that renewable energy is very expensive and only under ideal conditions would electricity demand be met.

If a country’s goal is to decrease carbon emissions by increasing reliance on renewable energy, it only makes sense to install the new equipment in the location with the best potential, both in geography and government.

For Australia, which has a national Renewable Energy Target (RET) of 33,000 gigawatt hours of electricity generated by defined renewable sources by 2020, South Australia (SA) is that place. According to SA Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis, who is also the Energy Minister, the federal government had determined that SA is where “the best conditions for wind farms” could be found.

The state government was amenable, with SA Premier Jay Wetherill promising to make Adelaide, its capitol city, “the first ‘carbon neutral’ city by 2050.” The state’s RET is for 50 percent renewable energy by 2025. Wetherall, in 2014, claimed: “This new target of half of the state’s power to be generated by renewable sources will create jobs and drive capital investment and advanced manufacturing industries.”

Bill McKibben’s Unfinished Business

….

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.

Colorado Fracking Debate Leaves Common Sense Behind

global warmingPaul Driessen
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

 

Rabid anti-fossil fuel activists are employing every tactic in their well-funded arsenals to ban Colorado fracking…and all oil and gas production. Where’s the common sense?

Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has given the USA and world centuries of new petroleum supplies, lowered energy prices for manufacturers, motorists and consumers, and altered geopolitics for the Middle East, Russia and Venezuela. New natural gas supplies provide low-cost petrochemical feed stocks, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by fueling electrical generating plants – which you’d think would be good news for climate alarmists.

But naturally, those who inhabit environmentalism’s loonier fringes have gone into overdrive. They used to support natural gas. However, now that they’ve shut down many American coal mines and coal-burning power plants, they’re against it.
