After 10 Years: Time for FutureGen to Retire

Ten years ago, the United States made an investment in a new environmental idea of clean coal through a cutting edge project known as FutureGen.  FutureGen, a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the FutureGen Industrial Alliance, was intended to construct a net zero-emission fossil-fueled power plant. To reduce carbon emissions, FutureGen uses carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology to inject carbon into geological formations rather than allowing emissions into the atmosphere.

Coalition Urges Republicans to Oppose Carbon Tax

The Obama Administration has given every indication that it will reignite the debate over the economically damaging carbon tax. This comes as no surprise. What should come as a surprise, however, is the willingness of some Republicans to be supportive of such a draconian tax. The conservative base must stand and let their voices be heard: No Carbon Tax.

Conservatives Are Not Anti-Environment, We're Anti-Junk Science

In writing my recent continuing series on the proposed coal shipping terminals in the Pacific Northwest, my mind inevitably wandered to the age-old accusation that Conservatives are opposed to science and uninterested in protecting the environment. I find that personally amusing, given my Bachelor's degree in Zoology and a lifelong commitment to conservation and the outdoors, that happen to jibe perfectly with my lifelong commitment to free markets and individual liberty. But the evidence is overwhelming - Conservatives are decidedly in favor of science, human progress and conservation.

Hysteria and Misinformation - Coal Train Fight Continued

As I posted earlier, coal producers are trying to secure approval to ship Powder River Basin (PRB) coal overseas to Asian markets, while environmental extremists are attempting to make this the Spotted Owl fight of modern times. The environmental movement has established this as their beachhead, and are pulling out all the stops.

Wind Subsidies: Spinning Out of Control

Since the early 1990s, the federal government has buttressed the wind energy industry through a series of programs and subsidies. The flagship program has been the Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC). This program provided a subsidy of 2.2 cents for every kilowatt-hour produced by wind utilities.

SoloPower, Portland's Very Own Solyndra Style Success Story

Portland, Oregon likes to fancy itself as ahead of the curve, and more educated than your average city. We're routinely listed as among the most wired cities in the nation, and typically have a more educated workforce than most. Our biggest mission, it seems, is to become the greenest city imaginable. But our government leaves a lot to be desired, with liberal pipe dreams dominating over such considerations as reality and common sense.

The Environmentalist Religion

I’m an avowed skeptic on anthropogenic climate change. Sure, humans might be responsible for some negligible shift in global temperatures. But these feeble contributions pale in comparison to those caused by the sun (e.g., changes in solar radiation) and earth (e.g., volcanic activity, weather patterns). I also believe that the climate is supposed to vary over time; this is to be expected, not feared.

Snow, Not Apocalypse

We’ve been here before. A storm bears down on the media centers of the east coast. Reporters don silly parkas, galosh into the tempest and offer apocalyptic sermons about climate change. “Repent! The End is Nigh!”Because who would expect the northeast to get snow in February — it’s unheard of!When I mock this predictable alarmism, Twitter lefties are quick to attack my blasphemy. “Y u hate sceince?! stoopid rethuglican!!1!” says an engaging fellow with an egg avatar and no followers. Yes, your piercing logic has swayed my scientific understanding, @m1tts4tard.
