Pennsylvania Gas A Critical Bulwark in Securing Energy Security

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.

Pennsylvania gas will become even more critical than it already is, if international tensions over Saudi behavior disrupt the foreign energy supply. 

Just six months after the Chinese Communist leadership massacred hundreds of their own people at Tiananmen Square in 1989, President George H. W. Bush sent his envoy Brent Scowcroft on a secret mission.  When pictures of National Security Advisor Scowcroft raising glasses for a champagne toast with the Butchers of Beijing leaked out, Americans were outraged.  However, Bush and Scowcroft realized that the Chinese relationship was too important and that the Communist leaders weren’t going anywhere.

The Price We Pay for Giving the Green Energy Lobby Power

The Boston Herald has written a spectacular editorial starkly explaining the risks of giving power to the green energy lobby. It is simply cold and darkness.

The Boston Herald has put out an editorial that says it all regrading the danger of following the advice of the green energy lobby on the path to cold and darkness. It is a common sense rebuttal of the knee-jerk political correctness that influences way too much of public policy made in New Jersey, New York and New England. It is a striking endorsement of natural gas.

China Coal Use Sends A Message: Renewables Don’t Reduce Emissions

environmental extremists.

China coal use is up not down, contrary to popular opinion, and renewables are never going to change it. Only our LNG and China fracking will change things.

China’s energy regulator indicated the country will speed up efforts to ensure its wind and solar power can compete without subsidies and achieve “grid price parity” with traditional energy sources. China is encouraging renewable manufacturers and developers to drive down costs through technological innovations and economies of scale in order to phase out power generation subsidies, which have become an increasing burden on the state.

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 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

Natural Gas NOW


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.
