By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Will the new Governor of New York uphold former Governor Cuomo’s moratorium on hydraulic fracturing? There are all kinds of motivations regarding these kinds of moratoriums, and they are all illegal because they violate private property rights. How can you take the property right of the minerals in the ground […]

Drilling Past Rocket Science

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ You’ve heard it countless times: “It’s not rocket science”! But rocket science has nothing on geo-science. In fact, drilling for oil and natural gas is arguably more complicated that space exploration. We’re not kidding. In the Marcellus/Utica formation a company […]

Fracking Ban Would Hurt Environment

By Nicolas Loris ~ If a policymaker proposed banning cars and trucks or reducing the speed limit to 5 mph to reduce traffic fatalities, he or she would be laughed off the stage. Such a policy ignores the benefits of driving and disregards how people accept risk and trade-offs in their lives. So why should we […]

Anti Fracking Climate Madness In Colorado

November 2, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Al Gore’s endorsement of the anti-fracking ballot initiative in Colorado makes it clear that this is a “leave it in the ground” measure. It is not really about health and safety, homes and hospitals, despite being pitched that way. This is climate activism at work. Proposition 112 is aimed at […]

Desperate Greens Claim Fracking Causes Rise In STDs

From the team at CFACT ~ Oil and natural gas production through hydraulic fracturing (fracking) leads to an increase in sexually transmitted diseases, environmental extremists claim in a desperate new attack. The desperate attack comes as natural gas, rather than wind and solar power, replaces coal power throughout the United States. Outlandish claims about global […]

What’s Behind The Liquefied Natural Gas Boom

By Caleb Pascoe and Patrick Tyrrell ~ When Americans think of U.S. exports, many think of cars, technology, or agricultural products. Most, though, never pay a second thought to U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas. In the past two years, the United States has not only become an exporter of liquefied natural gas, it is […]

By Fred Lucas ~ Hydraulic fracturing hasn’t contaminated groundwater in Texas, isn’t an earthquake hazard, and has been a boon for the state’s economy, according to a study released Monday. The new study’s conclusions on drinking water are in line with multiple other studies of hydraulic fracturing, popularly known as fracking. Hydraulic fracturing is the […]

Press Is Largely Ignoring Recent Awesome Fossil Fuel Related News

November 25, 2016 by

By Tom Blumer ~ Since Donald Trump’s election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks — and Donald Trump has had nothing to do with any of it. Two developments they consider really bad (meaning good for the rest of us) far outweigh the single item they’re celebrating. First, in Wyoming, just two […]

Colorado extremists want to ban fracking, oil, gas, jobs, revenues, property rights By Paul Driessen ~ Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has given the USA and world centuries of new petroleum supplies, lowered energy prices for manufacturers, motorists and consumers, and altered geopolitics for the Middle East, Russia and Venezuela. New natural gas supplies […]

Local control should be a two-way street that allows for balancing of economic and ecological concerns By Paul Driessen ~ Donald Trump recently said he supports giving local communities control over hydraulic fracturing. “If some areas don’t want” fracking, the decision should be “up to them,” he commented. Trump supports this proven and safe technology […]

Green Pants On Fire

By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, being green seems to be a licence to spread baseless alarm. New South Wales Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham – promoted by the ABC – lights up methane bubbling through the Condamine River in Queensland and blames it on fracking: This area has been drilled with thousands of CSG […]

Calls For Fracking Bans Ignore Sound Science

March 22, 2016 by

0

By Nicolas Loris and Andrew Wilford ~ Some politicians and environmental activists have been quick to call for blanket bans on hydraulic fracturing under claims that the process is poisoning America’s drinking water. Scientific evidence, from both government agencies and independent analyses, proves otherwise. For instance, The Environmental Protection Agency’s last study, released in June […]
