The few, the loud, the anti-fossil-fuel crowd

CFACT Advisor Marita Noon highlights the failure of anti-fracking activists to generate wide-scale support despite flying in super-activist Bill McKibben and spending a boatload of billionaire Tom Steyer's money. Their petition drive has apparently failed to get two vaunted initiatives onto the November ballot there.

Shaking out the lies surrounding earthquakes and hydraulic fracturing

Once again, CFACT advisor Marita Noon sheds light on the lies of the anti-fracking, anti-fossil-fuel crowd. This time she shows how Leftists falsely claim that fracking is a significant cause of earthquakes, when in fact science has shown that the problem is oversaturation due to reinjection of produced water into deep wells. The truth is that fracking operations often can use this water that otherwise would be reinjected, minimizing the problem.

Vetoing bipartisan energy, job, and economic growth

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen says that the Obama Administration is continuing, even revving up, its campaign against domestic energy production with new EPA regulations on the horizon that would shutter much of the nation's coal industry and do great harm to oil and gas production; he also promised to veto any legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Moreover, the Obama progressive mentality is so pervaseive that international lending and donor agencies (the UN, OPIC, etc.) are holding poor, developing countries hostage to wind, solar, and biofuel projects that cannot lift them out of poverty -- and thus these elites are damning the world's poorest people to eternal poverty when true prosperity through fossil fuels is staring them in the face.

Fracking in Texas: What do students think?

Given that Texas leads the nation in oil and gas production, and that hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has been the driver in this jobs renaissance, one might think that Texas college students, especially at the state's flagship university, would be well informed on oil and gas production and on fracking in particular. The truth is that, despite the fact that cheap energy is vital for economic growth and expensive energy hurts the poor and those on fixed incomes the most, about half of the students interviewed had no opinion or just did not know what fracking is. This creates an opportunity for education -- and if Texas students are so uninformed, one might assume that students in other states might also benefit from a sound public education campaign like Real Energy Not Green Energy.

Colorado Dems frack backtrack is all about November

CFACT Advisor Marita Noon points to a primary election in New Mexico as the impetus for Colorado Democrats to back away from legislation to curtail hydraulic fracturing (fracking), a measure that would hurt Colorado's economy and quite likely the chances for Democrats there to win elections this fall. Cynical? You betcha! If they should win in November, will these measures be back on the table?

Killing marine life with ethanol

Paul Driessen explains the damage done to the Gulf of Mexico from nitrogen fertilizer runoff that flows down the Mississippi and creates massive dead zones (no oxygen) that kill marine life. This is on top of other problems caused by adding ethanol to gasoline -- poor engine performance, higher food prices, and more

Can the U.S. fill the gap of potential oil losses from Iraq?

The new crisis in Iraq, which could soon sharply curtail shipments of Iraqi oil to Western nations, provides an excellent opportunity for President Obama to jumpstart a geat turnaround of the stagnant U.S. economy. To make up for lost Middle Eastern oil, the President could approve the Keystone XL pipeline, open more federal lands and offshore waters to oila nd gas drilling; and encourage other states to join the fracking parade. But that is not likely happen without additional pressure from the American people.
