Natural Gas Kills Renewables in Reducing CO2 Emissions

The latest data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) shows natural gas has been absolutely killing renewables insofar as CO2 emissions savings.

Natural gas and renewables are natural partners when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions but natural gas has been doing all the heavy lifting according to official calculations by the EIA. This is news that should warm the heart of everyone truly concerned about greenhouse gas emissions.

New York’s Renewable Plan Will Create Energy Poor

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Governor Cuomo’s renewable plan for New York State’s energy will surely fail, as it has in Germany, making its people energy poor.

November’s election and the incoming President’s appointees have seeded the clouds in Central New York for a rain of Letters to the Editor regarding gas. The letters run the table on the evils of gas development (it’s-the-end-of-the-world) and Constitution Pipeline (it’s-the-end-of-the-world, only-closer.) The writers don’t believe gas will be our bridge fuel to the future.

Sorry to disappoint these folks, but natural gas is bridging the future right now, even as they’re putting pen to paper. Gas is providing this bridge without massive subsidies and hidden costs.

The Rockefellers and the Renewable Special Interest Swamp

Among the special interests of the Rockefellers are major investments in renewables and those investments are dependent on government edicts and cronyism.

We’ve been documenting for years how the Rockefellers and other gentry class special interests are manipulating government. They do so through their foundation investments in politics. It is a scam of major proportions that is yet to be exposed. Bits and pieces keep coming out, though. We do some of it here but others are involved as well. Among them is the Energy & Environmental Legal Institute, which just put out a report entitled The Rockefeller Way: The Family’s Covert ‘Climate Change’ Plan. A reader sent it along. While we take no position here on climate change other than to say natural gas is the obvious solution to reducing carbon emissions, it is quite revealing.

The background story is nothing new to us, of course. Just use our search button above to see how much we’ve written on that subject. What is new is the revelation of some of the special interest investments made by the Rockefellers. Those investments are a window into the world of renewables special interests and the swamp (to use a popular word these days) they’ve become.

The Constitution Pipeline Endorsed by Otsego County

Otsego County recognizes the need for cheap energy (natural gas) in their county and has endorsed the building of the Constitution Pipeline.

Kudos to the Otsego County Legislature for passing a resolution endorsing the Constitution Pipeline at their November meeting. It was fitting that it followed a presentation by the CEO of the County’s industrial development agency. His 15 point program for projected growth depends on cheap energy. Cheap energy=gas. In our region, gas = the Constitution Pipeline.

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!

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.

Natural Gas Leads in Carbon Emissions Reduction

….
…. 

Natural gas is leading the way in reducing carbon emissions and lowering energy costs; all while working hand in hand with wind and solar.

U.S. carbon emissions from power plants have fallen to 25-year lows.  No country is reducing its emissions faster.  Remarkably, we are doing this while still growing our economy.  In fact, wholesale electricity prices have fallen 40 percent over the past five years.

Pipeline Infrastructure Crucial for Economy

 ….

 

Pipeline infrastructure will give Pennsylvania’s economy the boost needed to create much needed jobs and supply low cost natural gas to millions of homes and businesses.

Pennsylvania’s economy continues to face headwinds. Unemployment has increased over the past year – now higher than the national average – with most jobs losses coming in the blue-collar construction, manufacturing and mining sectors. Policymakers and regulators can help stem this tide by enacting pro-growth policies, and that starts with building out infrastructure and authorizing the construction of several major pipeline projects.

Anti-Fracking Spectacle Held on Eve of DNC Convention

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

On the eve of the Philadelphia DNC, thousands of the anti-fracking crowd came out to urge policy makers to ban fracking now.

Depending on the source you read, somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 rabid Bernie Sanders fans marched in Philadelphia the other night, on the eve of the Democrat National Convention. Their raison d’etre? To “DEMAND” a national ban on fracking.

If true (one never knows with habitual liars), an anti-fracking crowd of that size is the biggest we’ve heard of. Congrats! Apparently there were two different groups marching, they couldn’t even coordinate a unified march. Typical. Below is some of the coverage of these wackos marching in the sweltering heat last night.

Renewables: The Spoiled Children of the Energy Family

PennFuture - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW
   

   

Renewables are going nowhere while freed by politicos to act as the spoiled children of the energy family. When forced to compete they’ll grow with gas.

I’ve heard Robert Bryce speak and have read much of his material with greta admiration, but his latest article especially got my attention because he addresses one of the fundamental problems for those of us who believe in an energy strategy that is balanced between natural gas and renewables. The problem is simply this: politicians accustomed to passing out other people’s money and claiming credit for it, have stacked the deck in favor of renewables in such a way there is no way for this segment of the energy sector to grow up beyond the spoiled children phase.  Only true competition can accomplish that and when it happens we’ll see renewables and gas grow together.
