      President Obama wants to stake his legacy on fighting global warming even if he has to fake it, which he does.

Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., will convene […]

    • Can the U.S. fill the gap of potential oil losses from Iraq? - 16 Jun 2014
      posted in Columns & Energy & Environment

      While we weren’t paying attention, post-war Iraq grew into a major force in the global oil market. Reaching a 30-year high, its production and exports have climbed steadily since 2011—making Iraq the second largest producer in OPEC, the seventh globally. The International Energy Agency (EIA) has forecast that Iraq has the fifth-largest proven oil reserves. […]

    • Hollywood’s hydrocarbon hypocrisy - 10 Jun 2014
      posted in Columns

      Anti-fracking fervor underscores dismissive attitudes toward working classes and poor families Several Hollywood elites were recently caught red-handed on videotape, agreeing to take money from a Middle Eastern oil sheikh for another anti-fracking movie.

      America is poised to become the “no pee” section of the global swimming pool and the useless actions will cost us a bundle—raising energy costs, adding new taxes, and crippling the economy. Even some environmentalists agree. Yet, for President Obama, it’s all about legacy. On Monday, June 2, 2014, the EPA will release its new […]

      posted in Columns

      It is the symbol of Big Green’s diehard opposition to hydrocarbons and modern living standards  What is this incessant nonsense over Keystone XL? It’s a pipeline, for crying out loud. The United States already has 185,000 miles of liquid petroleum pipelines, 320,000 miles of natural gas transmission pipelines, and more than 2,000,000 miles of gas […]

    • The liberty and energy connection - 19 May 2014
      posted in Uncategorized

      Following my appearance on the Daily Show, I’ve received emails and phone calls from people who don’t agree with my views about energy and the advantages America’s energy abundance provides—benefits that drive both progress and prosperity. Some of the emails can’t be read in polite company, but one that can asked: “Please explain how energy […]

      posted in Big Gov & Big Green & Columns & Economy & Energy & Environment & Property

      Distractions, agendas, false realities, and policies that bring much harm but few benefits The White House has released its latest National Climate Assessment. An 829-page report and 127-page “summary” were quickly followed by press releases, television appearances, interviews and photo ops with tornado victims – all to underscore President Obama’s central claims: Human-induced climate change, […]

    • Environmental Shakedown through bastardized application of science, policy and education - 12 May 2014
      posted in Columns & Energy & Environment

      Over a three-year period, 2009-2012, Department of Justice data shows American taxpayers footed the bill for more than $53 million in so-called environmental groups’ legal fees—and the actual number could be much higher. The real motivation behind the Endangered Species Act (ESA) litigation, perhaps, could have more to do with vengeance and penance than with […]

    • What have Republicans got against winning? Lessons learned from Colorado and the Obama campaign - 02 May 2014
      posted in Big Green & Columns & Energy & Environment

      “Infrastructure,” said Rob Witwer, co-author of The Blueprint: How the Democrats won Colorado — and Why Republicans EVERYWHERE Should Care. Infrastructure is the secret that Republicans need to use in order to win, and he told me all about it. Hang on tight, because asking Witwer about politics is like Capt. James T. Kirk asking […]
