Sierra Club Lawsuit Against Cove Point, 2 Other LNG Plants Tossed

Thought Piece I use to be a member of the Sierra Club and I am a great admirer of fellow Wisconsinite John Muir, but I haven’t been able to stomach them since they adopted their anti-fossil fuel persona.

New Rules for More Media Competition

EPA Chief Set to Bar Government-Funded Experts From Agency’s Science Panels

Thought Piece It surely is time to end the inherent conflict of interest between appointed experts and government grants. One would hope that the funding-bias, so visible in many recent environmental studies, will stop.
