Hunters Sharing the Harvest Off and Running Again to Serve Others

Bill desRosiers
External Affairs Coordinator, Cabot Oil & Gas

Hunters Sharing the Harvest is, yet again, geared up to serve the poor with donated venison from a great program supported by the gas industry.

In our ongoing efforts to help address food insecurity in the Commonwealth, we recently donated $5,000 to Hunters Sharing the Harvest (HSH). For those unfamiliar, HSH serves the Commonwealth by providing donated venison from hunters to provide food assistance to those in need. The funds will be used to cover butchering costs of approximately 100 deer harvested by hunters this year. In our neck of the woods, HSH is administered by Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) and the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank.

Renewable Energy Is A Losing Proposition: End the Subsidies

[Editor’s Note: Renewable energy subsidies have supported an industry that is completely uneconomic and unsustainable and the time is past to end them.]

Four years ago, after the election of Donald Trump, I contacted the head of the editorial page of the Houston Chronicle requesting a visit with the editorial board to introduce myself, the Institute for Energy Research (IER), and the classical-liberal worldview applied to energy. I got no response.

I then resent the request and got a curt no caps rely from the gentleman as in don’t-have-time-for you. I then responded with the fact that IER was a go-to Trump think tank, and my being the founder and from/in Houston would add interest. His final response: ‘we can’t take all comers.’

Foreign Policy Can’t Be Left in the Hands of Governors

Tom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

Foreign policy belongs in the hands of the President, not governors captured by the demands of fractivists and other special interests.

Our friend Dan Markind has a great post up at Forbes that i encourage all readers to check out. It’s about pipelines and the abuse of the water quality certification provision of the Clean Water Act by certain governors, as well as a new form of abuse being perfected in Michigan. Andrew Cuomo is the prime example of these abusers, of course, but hardly the only one. Dan writes about Michigan’s example and, in his post, makes a powerful observation about how this abuse is now amounting to state interference with foreign policy. It’s a compelling argument.

Laterals Just Keep Getting Longer, As Gas Footprints Shrink

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

 

[Editor’s Note: Laterals just keep getting longer as drilling moves out underground and stays confined to a small well pad on the surface.]

Deep Well Services (DWS), headquartered in Butler County, PA, is living up to the company name. DWS is one of our favorite oilfield services companies, born right here in the Marcellus/Utica. DWS specializes in “snubbing” work–completing those super-long laterals you read about. Earlier this year the company drilled three more record-breaking wells–the longest onshore wells ever drilled in the world! The current record-holding well drilled by DWS, completed just last quarter, is located in…

AREGCBA Likely to Create More NY Refugees: Climate Refugees

NIMBYismRoger Caiazza
Independent Researcher and Publisher,
Pragmatic Environmentalist of New York

AREGCBA is nothing short of a climate refugee creator, the environmental impact from the wind turbines and solar panels will be staggering.

This post summarizes the comments I submitted on the draft regulations proposed by the New York Office of Renewable Energy Siting to implement the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act.  This is part of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act which mandates that New York electric system generation be zero-emissions by 2040.  In order to meet that requirement, the state envisions a vast build out of wind and solar generation.

Tom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

Shale POWER is a new initiative designed to help businesses find a place in the shale gas industry supply chain and to grow.

Appalachia, which includes parts of three states that are experiencing a boom due to shale gas. The challenge is to maximize the gain within the region . Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia institutions are rising to this challenge by creating something appropriately called Shale POWER. It was announced at the Third Annual Marcellus to Manufacturing Conference, which was hosted by the Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association (PIOGA) in nearby Wheeling, Wheeling, West Virginia, which is sandwiched between the Marcellus and Utica shales.

Energy Efficiency Has Its Limits: No Frost Is No Gain

NIMBYismRoger Caiazza
Independent Researcher and Publisher,
Pragmatic Environmentalist of New York

Roger Caiazza talks about energy efficiency and how you can tell if your house needs improvement; it’s all about the frost on the roof.

One of the reasons we have a dog is that I cannot avoid the need to take him out for a walk every day.  I don’t take along an audio system so the walk is a time for reflection and observation.  This morning’s observation is that when the frost is on the roofs you can tell who has good insulation and who doesn’t.  That lead to the thought that maybe I could do a “study” to determine how many houses in our neighborhood appear to be energy efficient and how many are not.

Talen Energy Corporatists Feed the Crocodile Hoping to Be Eaten Last

Tom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

Talen Energy has sold out to the Sierra Club in an attempt to feed the extremist crocodile knowing consumers will pay for the error.

Talen Energy, which is what was once the generating arm of Pennsylvania electric utility PPL before it broke itself up, is yet another corporatist outfit eager to sell its soul to the highest bidder while bragging up its ethics. It has just announced to the world its surrender to the high-financed, corrupt elitist shill known as the Sierra Club. The news release amounts to Mach 10 sycophancy; pandering to the extremist crocodiles in the hopes of being eaten last.
