Looking for a Big Easy windfall

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen explains how the election of trial lawyer buddy John Bel Edwards as Governor of Louisiana has paved the way for Green lawsuits against oil and gas companies that are nothing more than shakedowns -- claiming the energy industry as a whole is responsible for coastal land erosion in the state.

The EPA’s crooked prosecutors

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen makes a strong case for full reversal of the EPA's "endangerment finding" it used to attack the coal industry and ultimately all fossil fuel energy -- the EPA lied, falsified documents, and excluded contradictory testimony from the hearings to ensure that fossil fuels did not get a fair trial.

Now it’s a war on pipelines

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen calls out those who are protesting the shipment of oil and gas via pipeline as hypocritically favoring railcar transport even though railcar spills are much more commonplace and more dangerous -- and costly. Driessen notes that these same people have protested fracking and for that matter all use of fossil fuels -- even though they continue to rely on fossil fuel products for their own lifestyles.

Shameless fear-mongering – versus reality

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen champions a new book, for which he provided one essay, entitles, "Climate Change: The Facts 2017," which covers climate changes through the ages and reveals the devious tricks that alarmist "researchers" have used to modify and "homogenize" actual temperature data to fit their alarmist computer models. Driessen then points out the tremendous human cost of these foolish, people-killing policies that are insisted upon by the radical greens and are sadly being adopted in all too many places.

Diogenes searching for honest policies

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Drieseen outlines the various justifications for wind turbines and biofuels and shows the fallacies behind arguments in their favor. The simple truth is that renewable energy costs more, and that hurts the poor, who are doubly stung as their tax dollars are given as subsidies to wealthy speculators (like Warren Buffett, who chortled that the subsidies are the reason he makes money from wind).

The hidden agendas of sustainability illusions

Like “dangerous manmade climate change,” sustainability reflects poor understanding of basic energy, economic, resource extraction, and manufacturing principles – and a tendency to emphasize tautologies and theoretical models as an alternative to readily observable evidence in the Real World. It also involves well-intended but ill-informed people being led by ill-intended but well-informed activists who use the concept to gain greater government control over people’s lives, livelihoods, and living standards.

Pipeline anarchy

Is this to be our future? Last week’s elections will soon end autocratic rule via executive fiat, the war on coal and hydrocarbons, IRS agents targeting conservative groups, government SWAT teams invading businesses and homes, and numerous other Abuses and Usurpations. But now we’re getting leftist anarchy and riots – with mindless, incoherent radicals smashing Portland storefronts, beating a Chicago motorist, and pummeling a ninth grade Woodside, California, Trump supporter. Amid it all, the epitome of nihilist, watermelon environmentalist, criminal, sore-loser fury is raging south of Bismarck, North Dakota, where thousands of “peaceful protesters” are camping illegally on federal and private lands, “venting their [...]

American energy finally wins its independence

The 2016 election marks a turning around of U.S. energy policy back toward true "all of the above," with a focus first on using domestic oil, natural gas, and coal resources -- and other energy sources -- to keep the price of energy low, helping consumers and attracting business development. Exploiting domestic resources also creates jobs -- which the American people have demanded.

Now comes the hard, fun, and vital part

The election of Donald Trump provides an excellent opportunity to rein in the EPA and other federal regulatory agencies that have joyfully far exceeded their constitutional and statutory mandates and done more to stifle the growth of the U.S. economy than any other arm of government. Cleaning house at the EPA, according to CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen, will by itself do much to jumpstart the U.S. economy.

OPEC agrees to a production decrease, prices increase—but could be just right

CFACT energy policy advisor Marita Noon reports that, having failed to destroy U.S. oil and gas producers via increasing its own oil production, has now signed an OPEC agreement to cut back production -- largely because the artifically low price of oil was hurting producers worldwide.
