The German Energiewende has done nothing for emissions while raising electricity prices but, by turning gas into hydrogen, Germans could redeem themselves.

We’ve used a fair amount of bandwidth with this blog in exposing the German Energiewende for the virtue signaling political scam that it is, but could the Deutschland finally be getting it? Well, at least some Germans get it. They’ve invented technology with the potential to efficiently turn natural gas into hydrogen with no remissions. That would change everything.

Energy Information Administration data for 2018 shows the Golden Age of Gas has truly arrived for the U.S. with production, consumption and exports all up.

What do you call a quadruple win? A “quadfecta” maybe? Well, that’s what in happened in 2018 for the natural gas industry and, especially, landowners with natural gas resources. Production was up. Consumption was up. Prices were up. Exports were up. That’s what the Energy Information Administration (EIA) tells us. The International Energy Agency, in 2012, saw it coming when it talked about a coming “Golden Age of Gas” and it’s now fully arrived in the United States.

Stubborn New England Needs Our Marcellus Shale Gas

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

Russian LNG and oil are keeping stubborn New England suppied with energy but the real answer—Marcellus Shale gas—is but a hop, skip and pipeline away..

New England refuses to build new natural gas transmission pipelines to carry abundant, cheap, clean-burning Marcellus Shale gas to the region–and instead continues to rely on imported LNG from Russia and burning dirty fuel oil to generate electricity when the nights get really cold.

A tweet by Mark Ruffalo and cable appearance by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reveal the fractivist playbook in its entirety; feelings have no room for facts.

A faithful reader sent me a tweet from Mark Ruffalo yesterday about his visit to Washington to hob-nob with newly installed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or “AOC” as she has signaled she wants to be called now. It might as well stand for “Another Obtuse Collectivist” as far as I’m concerned. Nonetheless, she of sudden “Green New Deal” fame has done something suddenly wonderful as well. She has perfectly illustrates the fractivist playbook, as does the Green Hulk’s tweet.

This May Be the Greatest Renewables Story Ever Told

…. 

A recent article in NJ Spotlight may well be the greatest renewables story told and it’s narrated by a journal given to knee-jerk support of renewables.

NJ Spotlight is financed, in large part, by the William Penn Foundation and routinely carries water for Foundation shills such as the Delaware Povertykeeper a/k/a Riverkeeper. I’ve been harshly critical, in fact, of some of its reporting. Nevertheless, I think they may just published the greatest renewables story I’ve ever read. By that, I mean the article tells the unvarnished truth. Moreover, because it comes from a source given to naturally supporting the politically correct version of the renewables story, it exudes credibility.

Potomac Pipeline is a No-Go, Thanks to Animal Farm

…. 

The Maryland Board of Public Works embraced the Animal Farm revolution to reject the easement request for the Potomac Pipeline. 

This week, the Maryland Board of Public Works once again put their baseless emotions in front of the facts and opted to deny an easement application for the Potomac Pipeline. Headed up by Comptroller Peter (Squealer) Franchot, Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp, and Comrade Governor, Larry Hogan, the Maryland Board of Public Works decided the scare tactics of The Terracotta Army of pseudo-environmentalist groups, the sheep, were justified in blocking the natural gas pipeline from delivering clean-burning energy to Western Virginia.

Two Energy Futures, Which One Do We Want? It Should Be Obvious!

Founder and CEO of the Institute for Energy Research

Free markets will deliver the best, the cleanest and the least expensive of energy futures. We forget that to our great peril as some propose naive answers.

There are two energy futures for America. One is freedom and prosperity. The other is politics, conflict, and waste. As with other goods and services, energy’s availability and affordability will depend on whether natural incentives and economic law are respected or hampered by government policy.
