Boom in U.S. Oil Production Since 2008 Saved American Motorists Over $2 Trillion

It’s great to see the White House recognize that increased oil production leads to lower prices.  Their math, shows that increased domestic oil production has saved $2 trillion since 2008 and currently about $2 a gallon at the pump.

Manchin and Schumer’s “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” Green New Deal & Climate Sections

Senator Joe Manchin, in a 180-degree about-face, agreed on a slimmed-down version of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill that will increase corporate taxes; provide tax credits, grants and incentives to politically correct “clean” energy technologies such as wind, solar and electric vehicles; and seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, among other Green New Deal and climate initiatives.

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.

End the Gasoline Crisis: Try Motivation by Love, Not Fear

After thwarting the oil industry by banning pipelines and new oil and gas leases after his inauguration, Biden’s recent proposals are watered-down varieties of the failed policies that created the multiple gas crises that rocked the nation in the 1970s.

Rethinking Uranium Imports Amid Price Increases

Despite the United States having vast uranium resources, more than 90 percent of the uranium used in the United States is imported.

As a result, the U.S. relies on Russia and its allies Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan for almost 50 percent of its enriched uranium needs.

Solar Microgrid Failure in India

“In the first three years, it worked well and people were using it. But after three years the batteries were exhausted and it was never repaired.”

Electricity Shortages: Brace for Impact

The consequences of massively building wind turbines and solar panels, while forcing the closure of fully-operational power plants burning coal, oil and natural gas is dire.

An Energy Policy Wake-Up Call

Under the Trump administration, the United States became energy independent—a goal that U.S. governments wanted to reach for decades. The Biden administration’s anti-oil and gas policies are undoing these gains.

Biden’s Anti-Energy Policies and Increasing Natural Gas Prices

Natural gas prices have escalated because of President Biden’s anti-oil and gas policies that are limiting pipeline infrastructure and increased production on federal lands, while the promise of pending regulatory actions add uncertainty to investments.

Net-Zero Emission Targets?

There is an alternative strategy for businesses to deal with climate change: one that is based on facts and human wellbeing (as opposed to no human impact on the planet) as the standard.

Go Nuclear

It’s particularly absurd that Earth Day’s activists rarely mention the form of energy that could most quickly reduce greenhouse gases: nuclear power.
