Thought Piece I have been assembling all of the examples of bad behavior by the churches of “Net Neutrality”, both from the efforts of the States and former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler. That said, this story takes the cake. In a recent threat against FCC Chairman Agit Pai, “I will find your children and I will [...]

Faux Outrage Over Migratory Bird Treaty Demonstrates Fractivist Duplicity

Thought Piece Congrats to the sanity of Greg Walcher and Paul Driessen. The size of the double standards applied to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is symptomatic of the larger discussion about EU’s Paris Agreement and the “environment leadership” of Germany. Do what I say, not what I do. The EU and its “Emission Trading Scheme” [...]

California Breaks the Internet

Thought Piece Psst! California tries to predict the future of Broadband, without being able to manage its present turmoil. With the current rollout of 5G Broadband, the Internet of Everything will require big data, currently unimaginable technology, and enormous amounts of Broadband. However, the Federal overreach of Tom Wheeler’s FCC 2015 initiative and California’s 2018 (even [...]

Natural gas explosions: Boston-area gas pipes among oldest and leakiest in US

Thought Piece In direct answer to Cory Brewer’s question about Massachusetts explosions, I am providing the link to the USA Today investigation. It is probably the most clear-headed and detailed, otherwise, it is small-bore reporting. This piece reminds me of living in Manhattan in 1996. At the time, I was doing communication work for a Municipal [...]

Trump’s energy policies are driving Democrats crazy

Thought Piece The Clean Power Plan (CPP) of 2015 had almost nothing to do with emission reductions. In fact, the whole “indirect health benefits” mirage was invented by the EPA in 2013, using Harvard and Syracuse U, et al, for validation of the concept of “indirect health” at the cost of $45million in university grants and [...]

States Loom as a Regulatory Threat to Tech Giants

Thought Piece Just when I thought some of the expansive “State Rights” arguments were being throttled by state and federal courts, the Justice Department and several states are attempting to regulate the Internet, Broadband and large technology companies, again. It is worth mentioning that all of these agencies are many years behind the industries they regulate, [...]

What Trendy Environmentalism Ignores to the Detriment of Mankind

What Trendy Environmentalism Ignores to the Detriment of Mankind By Stephen Heins Trendy environmentalism seems to be the order of the day in those parts of the US where rich folks tend to congregate, with no attention to the common good. It’s official. A Pennsylvania environmental group funded by the Heinz Endowments to create mischief is copying an [...]

Energy & Environmental Newsletter: September 10, 2018

Thought Piece Before I give praise to John Droz and the “Energy & Environmental Newsletter” at masterresource.org, I must mention the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears game last night. It was 196th time they have played since 1921 and the Packers now have a two game lead. Classic game in a sneaky way, with a [...]

Thought Piece I am proud to introduce this new presentation by friend Paul Driessen. It may the very best educational and historical discussion of the last 200 years of global history, at least known to me. It is simply a great piece of accessible scholarship for general readership. Honestly, it should be shared with everyone looking [...]

Thought Piece This is a remarkable story about a remarkable young man! While I haven’t ever met Otis, I have been following his very interesting young life, thanks to my friend and his proud father, Jason Spiess. Yes, in full closure, Popsie Jason also wrote this piece on a budding energy superstar. Actually, Jason is already [...]
