Mozart, Mediocrity, and the Administrative State

Mozart, Mediocrity, and the Administrative State

Every highly productive person – we don’t even have to speak of geniuses here – often ends up surrounded by resentful and mediocre people who have too much time on their hands.

Biden Opposes Oil & Gas Pipeline Projects in the United States, But Not Elsewhere

The demands that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is placing on pipeline developers is significant and with no timeline, the uncertainty created is delaying new projects that are needed for both export and domestic purposes at a time when the administration is using every tool in its “whole of government” approach to make domestic energy harder to finance, produce, transport and consume.

Europe’s Energy Worries Grow

Europe’s Energy Worries Grow

Europe’s energy shortages – exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – were originally caused by low wind resources, increased demand from COVID lockdowns, and cut backs of natural gas by Russia.
