The 2014 state of wind energy: Desperately seeking subsidies

By Marita Noon With the growing story coming out of Ukraine, the ongoing search for the missing Malaysian jet, the intensifying Nevada cattle battle, and the new announcement about the additional Keystone pipeline delay, little attention is being paid to the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy — or any of the other fifty lapsed tax breaks the Senate […]

Earth Day VIDEO: “If I Wanted America to Fail”

Two years ago, Americans for Limited Government and Free Market America released “If I Wanted American to Fail.” Viewed by tens of millions, the video took America by storm with its concluding statement, “If I wanted America to fail, I wouldn’t change a thing.” Twenty four moths more of the Obama administration’s policies has only exacerbated the problems addressed in […]

Keystone XL answers from Obama/Kerry

By Rick Manning Kathleen Sebelius’ unceremonious dumping answered the question of what does it take to get fired in the Obama Administration with an expected answer.  You get fired when it is more useful to Obama for you to be a scapegoat than to be protecting secrets on the inside. Now that we know that answer, the longest lingering question […]

Was stopping Nevada’s fracking rush behind the Bundy showdown?

By Marita Noon The story of rancher Cliven Bundy has captured an abundance of media attention and attracted supporters from across the West, who relate to the struggle against the federal management of lands.

More fraudulent science from EPA on sulfur in gasoline rules

By Paul Driessen The Obama Environmental Protection Agency recently slashed the maximum allowable sulfur content in gasoline from 30 parts per million to 10 ppm. The agency claims its new “Tier 3” rule will bring $7 billion to $19 billion in annual health benefits by 2030. “These standards are a win for public health, a win for our environment and a […]

Clouds on the solar horizon

By Marita Noon Consumers considering installing solar panels on their rooftops have far more to think through than the initial decision to “go solar.” They may search for the best price, only to discover, as customers in central Florida did, that after paying $20,000-40,000 for their systems, they are stuck with installations that may be unusable or unsafe.

U.S. electricity system in regulatory and terrorist crosshairs

By Paul Driessen and Roger Bezdek Government agencies are forcing us to spend countless billions on illusory risks and anti-fossil fuel mandates, while ignoring real threats to our livelihoods, living standards, and lives.

U.S. energy, Ukraine, and Russia

By Alan Caruba Ukraine came apart when a protest against its president forced him to flee to Russia. The issue was whether Ukraine would be allied with Russia or with the European Union. Due to a combination of the obscene corruption of its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, and the mismanagement of the nation in general, the Ukrainian Parliament ousted him […]

Three hours of water boarding

By Marita Noon On Thursday, February 27, I received an email that said: “I’m a producer at the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. We’re working on a segment about fracking & I wanted to reach out to see if you’d be interested in participating. I read your column in Town Hall a few months ago & it’s just what we’re looking […]

Has the EPA lost its mind?

By Robert Romano Here’s a bright idea. When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues a new regulation requiring retrofitting or that some new technology be used by energy providers, perhaps they should double-check to see if the technology actually exists yet.
