Colorado Fracking Votes Uphold Property Rights

Thought Piece This is an important interpretation of the Colorado elections (as it relates to American oil and natural gas) last week by Tom Shepstone. “ As Tom says, “Fairness is, too, the reason landowners will ultimately prevail in court.” Anyway, I have worked with Tom on many, many occasions over the last few years in [...]

EPA rule changes put clean air at risk (Commentary)

Thought Piece The thoroughly discredited Dr. Charles Driscoll, leader of the “Indirect Health Benefits Study” of the Clean Power Plan (CPP), opines about the new EPA rule, replacing the 2015 CPP with a more balance, less Federal Government. Did I mention the Study was jointly done with Harvard? Old environmentalists don’t fade away, they patiently wait [...]

Plunging Emissions Mostly Not Spurred By Natural Gas Nor Renewables, U.S. Government Finds

Thought Piece Reading between the lines of this piece about the recent EIA Report, the stark raving fact is that industrial energy efficiency has been responsible for over 50% of all emission reductions in the US in the last 23 years, with energy efficiency strategies in the last decade or so in the industrial sector reducing [...]

But what will take its place?

Thought Piece Here is another thoughtful piece from my friend Greg Walcher, who knows more about the environmental history of West of Mississippi River than anyone I have ever read. In addition, Greg has great conservational creds, after being the head of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and working on environmental issues in the Senate [...]

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” [...]

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.

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 [...]

Climate Psychology Handbook: Promote Renewables to Cure Debilitating Climate Angst

Thought  Piece Here is a handbook (aka Cliff Notes) from the echo chamber of environmental activism. More from the Scientific Tabernacle Choir. “Climate psychology” and “Debilitating Climate Angst” are phrases for the ages, prime examples of SCIENTISTS’ sense of self-importance. Shame on them. Climate Psychology Handbook: Promote Renewables to Cure Debilitating Climate Angst Eric Worrall / September 1, [...]

Fake Study Recommends Quarter-Mile Setbacks for PA Shale Drilling

Thought Piece It’s official. A Pennsylvania environmental group is copying an initiative spawned in Boulder, CO, using a discredited study to advance their cause. Environmentalism has become a secular religion, with no regard for facts or the loss of credibility while they proselytize. Thanks to Pennsylvania’s best reporter, Jim Willis and the Marcellus Drilling News. How [...]
