… 

The Lackawanna College School of Petroleum & Natural Gas has trained many local residents for the natural gas industry and just celebrated with a clay shoot.

After five years of growth under Cabot Oil & Gas, the annual Sporting Clay Tournament benefiting the Lackawanna College School of Petroleum & Natural Gas was enjoyed once again by hundreds of sportsmen and women and corporate sponsors on Sept. 27. The new twist this year is that the friendly competition was managed by the college, its staff, and its students. Not only does the event provide funding for equipment, scholarships, and programs, it affords students and potential employers an opportunity to meet face-to-face under recreational circumstances.

Virginia Governor Northam Shows Andrew Cuomo What Leadership Is

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, contrary to Andrew Cuomo, understands what real governance is and it’s following the law, not just pandering to your base.

The pressure DC swamp dwellers and anti-fossil fuelers from across the country (indeed from across the world) have put on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (a Democrat) has been intense. They want Northam to abuse his executive authority, in contravention of the law, and block both the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) projects in his state.  He’s standing with the law.

Bill McKibben Gives Another Wink and Nod to Extremists

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

Bill McKibben may be the world’s premier charlatan, a Rockefeller hired gun and phony man of reason, who just loves giving the wink and nod to extremists.

Last week’s trial against the three “valve turners” who temporarily shut down two Enbridge Energy pipelines was supposed to be the “holy grail of climate activism” because these were the first climate activists granted permission to use the necessity defense during trial. “The whole planet will be inside a single courtroom the day this trial begins,” crowed Bill McKibben, the titular head of the “Keep It in the Ground Movement.”

Instead, the judge dismissed the charges against Emily Johnston and her co-conspirators before the defense could even make their opening statement. No one was more disappointed by this “victory” than McKibben.

Appalachian Shale Revolution Delivers Real Growth and Great Jobs

… 

The Appalachian shale revolution has been an astounding event. It has lifted up a region often thought to be synonymous with poverty, creating opportunity.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has come out with an knock ’em dead report on the sheer magnitude of the Appalachian shale revolution. The boring title — “Shale gas production and labor market trends in the U.S. Marcellus-Utica region over the last decade” — distracts from the power of the data in illustrating what natural gas development has done economically for the region. It has created huge numbers of jobs in not only producing the gas, but also building the pipeline infrastructure required to deliver this clean fuel to urban consumers who save thousands of dollars annually in energy costs as a result.

… 

The big energy news this week has been all LNG. Rural Americans are benefiting by a shale revolution positioning us to be the supplier in a LNG world.

The headlines from around the world this week in energy news this week have largely been about LNG and the increasing demand for it. This demand is putting rural Americans in the enviable position of potentially becoming the world’s supplier of the stuff.  We’re talking about gas produced in rural Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia that is going to China, Italy, Japan, Pakistan and South Korea. It’s an enormous opportunity.

Germany Shows Renewables Are No Formula for Replacing Coal

environmental extremists.

Renewables do nothing to reduce demand for coal. Just look at Germany. Natural gas is the one and only thing offering the potential to reduce emissions.

According to the United Nations’s latest report, to meet the goals of the Paris agreement and reduce other risks, 2010 levels of global carbon dioxide emissions would need to be halved by 2030, and totally end around 2050. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that either limiting or ending emissions is not enough—carbon dioxide already existing in the atmosphere would have to be captured to stop global warming from becoming more severe.

Fauxahontas Is A Delaware Indian? Well, That Explains Things.

… 

Senator Elizabeth Warren, a/k/a Fauxahontas, in her quest for perfect absurdity, now claims she has proof she’s Native American. That could explain some things.

Last year I wrote a story about two gentry class members of the US Senate from Massachusetts, Edward Markey and Elizabeth Warren. Senator Warren, now permanently tagged with the nickname of Fauxahontas has opposed every effort to bring more natural gas to Massachusetts and the rest of New England. As I stated earlier, she and Markey prefer Boston and environs rely upon Russian LNG, while they sleep comfortably in Washington DC.

Yesterday, Warren made herself look even sillier, if that was possible, by proclaiming she’s somewhere between one 256th and one 1,024th Native American. It was a predictable fiasco and ought to make Bay Staters question her judgment on matters of energy and environment, issues she puts at the top of the heap on her website.

Will Corruptcrat Get a Crown? Could It Be His Undoing?

Bob McManus says New York is about to crown a king, King Andrew Corruptocrat Cuomo, but could this lead to the flameout of the world’s biggest egomaniac?

Bob McManus, a writer for City Journal, just put out a superb article entitled “King Andrew I.” He points outs Andrew Corruptucrat Cuomo is almost assured of being re-elected for a thirds tern at the helm of a New York State government where he controls not only the executive branch, but also the legislature and the judiciary. Corrutocrat looks to become king in November.

McManus, in all likelihood, has it correct; Corruptocrat’s opponent is the feckless—afraid of his shadow—Mark Molinari, who is running a campaign of caution that guarantees defeat. Yet, wisdom teaches that Corruptocrat’s likely victory may well also be his undoing, as is so often the case with street-fighters.
