Another One Bites the (Fracking) Dust

The scene opens; the air is thick with toxic smog, and those few who dare to venture outside the safety of their ventilated homes sway, their lungs battered by the noxious chemicals poisoning the air. Such a scene is straight out of an apocalyptic B-movie.

Fracking Double Speak

Environmentalists have demonized hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) from New York to California; one would think that the process which extracts natural gas from underground shale formations morphs water sources into toxic dumps. Yet that sentiment could not be further from the truth.

Stumbling Over Green Barriers

Rising oil prices, unrest in the Middle East, and a fragile economy are all worrisome subjects to many Americans. Despite President Obama’s rhetoric  about energy independence, reducing pain at the pump, and creating  American jobs, the EPA is unleashing  a host of strict, new regulations.

Life and Energy Find a Way

“Life always finds a way” is as true in today’s real world as it was in Jurassic Park. Life requires energy to exist and New York state has come to realize this. Governor Cuomo of New York is set to lift the state’s de facto ban on hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, allowing this energy industry to revitalize the state.

Regulating California’s Auto Industry into the Electric Chair

Californians, especially Southern Californians, love their cars, from a big Jeep a la Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” to a slick Mercedes Benz. With such a large number of auto consumers, it seems safe to say that a Californian will know what sort and what priced car is best for him. Yet the California Air Resources Board is working on a new proposal to be unveiled this September that will exhort Californians to buy electric cars. A regulatory agency with unelected members is picking which products are winners and which are losers in the state’s legendary and diverse auto marketplace.

Regulating the Hope Out of Natural Gas

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, seems to be a new American energy solution, or problem, depending on one’s view. Various parties, from environmentalists to businesses are heralding natural gas as the answer to our national energy crisis. Proper fracking harvests large quantities of natural gas safely and at a reasonable cost.

The Light Bulb Resistance Movement

America’s wild wild west has always been home to cowboys, adventurers, hardened frontiersmen, and red-blooded, independent Americans. In the face of excessive government regulation, Texans have revived their independent streak and passed HR 2510. The bill  returns commonsense to the world of light bulbs, despite establishment opposition.

Subsidizing Ethanol: Sci-Fi Nightmare

The government is continuing to seek out alternative energy sources, but the solutions should not come at the expense of the American consumer. Government subsidies of ethanol can only have negative consequences. It will continue to destabilize our fragile economy and raise food prices to benefit a few politicians and corn lobbyists, while doing nothing to further the search for effective alternative energy.
