Alaska’s ANWR opening

Making ANWR oil available is a big step forward for America and all who wish renewed strength to the land of the free. The caribou and their wild friends will never know the difference, but we will.

California supports “Big Oil” — So long as it’s foreign

By Ronald Stein California is home to the largest crude oil reserves in America, but the States’ choice to not drill for that oil requires in-state manufacturers to “export” billions of dollars annually to oil rich foreign countries to import their oil to meet the state’s energy demands.

Decline of oil predicted, but we’ve heard this before

According to a survey published last month in the United Kingdom, climate change risks will force a lower valuation of oil company stock prices within the next five years. But despite many predictions of demise over the last 50 years, global consumption of hydrocarbon energy continues to grow.

Those fraudulent climate litigation shakedowns

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen warns that the impending lawsuits against oil and gas companies -- created by corrupt city governments as a last-gasp hope for escaping bankruptcy -- pose grave danger for the U.S. economy should these cities succeed. Yet, says Driessen, the very premises of these suits suggests they should be thrown out of court.

Lease the OCS – to benefit all Americans

As CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen explains, federal revenues from offshore drilling fell from $18 billion in 2008 to just $2.5 billion in 2016 thanks largely to Obama era policies while state revenues from closer-in rigs went up. The Trump-Zinke proposal would open federal waters (outside the 3-mile limit) to drilling, with huge potential revenues and contributions to national security. The planning and evaluation process, Driessen argues, should not be impeded.

The biofuel crony capitalist revolving door

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen pulls no punches, calling today's ethanol and biofuels mandates and subsidies a fascistic scheme that harms both the economy and the environment and does nothing to conserve domestic energy while doing a lot to stifle economic growth. He urges the swift repeal of ethanol and biofuels mandates.

A little slice of Alaskan tundra is finally open for drilling

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen extols the benefits of the opening some 2,000 acres of the huge Arctic National Wildlife Reserve to exploration and drilling for oil and gas. The potential for the region is at least 15 billion gallons of oil a year - more than enough to keep the Trans-Alaska Pipeline up and running for a long time to come.

Keystone is anti-hydrocarbon zealotry in microcosm

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen laments the long, arduous battle to open the Keystone XL pipeline -- an action that would eliminate the need for 1,225 railroad tanker cars per day (450,000 per year) or 3,500 semi-trailer tanker trucks daily (1,275,000 annually) that currently transport oil to refineries, saving lives and costs and creating jobs in rural America. Driessen also recounts the many ways that fossil fuels enrich humanity -- from feed stocks for paints, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and other products to powering the manufacturing centers that create computers, smart phones, healthcare technologies, vehicles, and batteries.
