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.

Barbara Lifton Wants to Ban New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure!

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

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

 

Barbara Lifton, and 21 other NY lawmakers, ask Gov. Cuomo to ban on all new fossil fuel infrastructure; a move that would send NY back to the stone ages.

Barbara Lifton is a dangerously stupid person. Dangerous because she happens to be an elected member of the New York State Assembly. She is representing the ultra-liberal bastion of Ithaca, NY. In fact, Lifton has long opposed shale drilling in the state. Her hatred of shale drilling has now spilled over and metastasized into a full-blown, irrational hatred of all fossil fuels.

Lifton and 21 other energy no-nothings in the NY state legislature sent a signed letter to Gov. Andrew “man-child” Cuomo. They are asking him to halt all state approvals of pipelines, compressor stations, power plants, and gas storage facilities. In other words, stop any more development of energy that comes from fossil fuels. Even though, last year 81.5% of all energy used in this country (and NY) came from fossil fuels. That’s the stupid part.

Atlantic Sunrise FERC Hearing: A Lesson in Rules for Radicals

The Atlantic Sunrise FERC hearing in Bloomsburg was a window into the world of fractivism and the Rules for Radicals employed there.

My pal Rich and I went to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) hearing on the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline in Bloomsburg Wednesday night to learn more about the process and hear the comments from both sides.

More Methane Madness; More Mindless Job-Killing Rules from EPA

global warmingPaul Driessen
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

 

Methane madness continues with new EPA rules on emissions that break the rules of economic analysis and common sense. It’s more job-killing by the agency.

Having already done yeoman’s work stifling economic growth and job creation, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is doubling down again with nonsensical methane rules.

The United States created a paltry 38,000 new jobs in May: one for every 8,000 Americans. Its labor force participation rate is a miserable 63% – meaning 93 million Americans are not working, while 6.4 million more are trying to feed their families on involuntary part-time positions and a fraction of their previous salaries. Manufacturing lost another 20,000 jobs in May, as the economy grew at an almost stagnant 0.8% the first quarter of 2016. Middle class family incomes and net worth continue to slide.

Meanwhile, well-paid federal bureaucrats increasingly regulate our lives, livelihoods and living standards, hand down fines and jail terms for some 5,000 federal crimes and 300,000 criminal offenses, and inflict $1.9 trillion in annual regulatory compliance costs on families and businesses.

Fossil Fuels: What We Call Civilization

Upstate New York Landowner Shale Gas Activist at NYRAD-R

….
….  

Guest blogger Vic Furman relates what it’s like when the well runs dry and ponders the fossil fuels that have given us what we call civilization.

Running out of water recently has, at least temporarily, forced me into a situation where I get to experience a little of what it was like before fossil fuels changed our lives for the better. It has also made me keenly aware of the contributions fossil fuels make to our way of life even, especially in circumstances where other necessities are suddenly threatened or, as is the case in my world, suddenly taken away. Yet, our governor panders, at our expense, to those who live in a fantasy world of no fossil fuels.

Environmentalism: How Much Is Too Much?

….
….

Edward Allees discusses how environmentalism goes too far at the expense of jobs, wildlife and even the environment they are “trying” to protect.

When concern over a supposed threat to a species, in this case the Spotted Owl, results in the loss of thousands of timber related jobs in the Northwest. The threat is later proved to be false.

When an ever growing movement by federal and state governments closes thousands of acres to the public, fueled by pressure from ideological activists, who, God forbid, their own backyard be taken. Continue reading

“Inside Climate News” Should be the RICO Target

global warmingPaul Driessen
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

 

Inside Climate News is the news organ of a RICO conspiracy; the likes of which it accuses the oil and gas industry of being guilty.

Have you ever wondered how the LA Times, Associated Press, Weather Channel and your local media always seem to present similar one-sided stories on fossil fuels, renewable energy and other environmental issues? How their assertions become “common knowledge,” like the following?

Fracking is poisoning our air, water and climate. A clean renewable energy future is just around the corner.

It’s as if a chain of command, carefully coordinated process or alliance of ideological compatriots was operating behind the scenes to propagate these fables. This time, conspiracy theorists have gotten it right.

Fracking Reality Is Worse Than Ever (If You’re a Fractivist)

Two major stories highlighting our energy future illustrate a fracking reality even worse than most fractivists thought, but better for the rest of us.

Readers are always bringing wonderful stories to my attention and two contrasting articles I received recently perfectly illustrate what I call the fracking reality. One looks the future of shale energy compared to renewables and observes what so many fractivists cannot bring themselves to admit; a renewable energy future is not possible, at all, without natural gas, which is best produced from shale resources. The second observes what a difference this same shale energy has made in reducing CO2 emissions in one state – my state – of Pennsylvania and what a beautiful thing it has been.

Methane Madness Infects Washington Energy Politics

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

 

Methane madness, the latest virulent obsession of activists and special interests promoting their political agendas, has infected Washington politics.

Quick: What is 17 cents out of $100,000? If you said 0.00017 percent, you win the jackpot.

That number, by sheer coincidence, is also the percentage of methane in Earth’s atmosphere. That’s a trivial amount, you say: 1.7 parts per million. There’s three times more helium and 230 times more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. You’re absolutely right, again.

Equally relevant, only 19% of that global methane comes from oil, natural gas and coal production and use. Fully 33% comes from agriculture: 12% from rice growing and 21% from meat production. Still more comes from landfills and sewage treatment (11%) and burning wood and animal dung (8%). The remaining 29% comes from natural sources: oceans, wetlands, termites, forest fires and volcanoes.
