Removing gas from California homes will not meaningfully improve either indoor or outdoor air quality. Nor will it meaningfully reduce global temperature.
Canada has been unable to build a major oil pipeline for over a decade.
The 7-2 ruling, handed down June 15, removes the biggest legal obstacle to the 600-mile pipeline, which would carry up to 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale basin in West Virginia to customers in Virginia and North Carolina.
Phasing out natural gas-fired electric power generation by 2030 is bedrock dogma in the Green New Deal.
BY MARK MATHIS: In Berkeley California, the City Council has voted to ban natural gas in all new low-rise residential buildings. This bad idea is spreading to other parts of the country.
Cities such as Berkeley, San Jose, San Francisco, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Albuquerque, and other U.S. cities are moving to ban natural gas -- the energy source that made America number one in emissions reductions.
Lower LNG prices stymie terrorist-financing budgets in Tehran and lower the ability for Putin’s Russia to weaponize their energy assets for geopolitical adventures in Ukraine, Crimea, Syria, Central Asian and the Middle East.
Berkeley is the first city in America to ban natural gas hook-ups in new buildings.
Why are New England states paying more for natural gas than surrounding states (sometimes a LOT more) when the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays are nearby? WATCH NOW
There is no evidence that restrictions on New England usage will have a measurable effect on world demand for natural gas, or the slightest effect on global temperatures. But misguided government energy policies will raise prices for New England residents.
Environmental agenda clashing with real energy needs for businesses and residential living.
Bloom electricity costs about $200 per megawatt-hour – three times the price of typical coal, gas, nuclear or hydroelectric power.
The Northeast pays 56 percent more for its energy than the national average and has little to show for it.
The United States and Western democracies as a whole are increasingly minor players among global carbon dioxide emitters, U.S. EPA data show. Without dramatic emissions reductions in China, India, and other developing nations, dramatic reductions in the United States, Western Europe, and Japan will have little impact on global carbon dioxide emissions. According to EPA data (https://www.epa.gov/ghgemissions/global-greenhouse-gas-emissions-data), the United States, Western Europe, and Japan account for a cumulative 28% of global carbon dioxide emissions. China alone accounts for 30%, India accounts for 7%, and the rest of the world cumulatively accounts for 35%. The share of global emissions from the United [...]
Republican Sen. Robert Ortt of New York criticized the state’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo Wednesday for unambiguously opposing natural gas production while citizens contend with rolling blackouts and expensive energy prices.
