Climate change and the question of science

By Andy May – April 21, 2022 Promoters of the human-caused climate-change narrative sometimes ask skeptics if they believe in evolution or gravity. It is a way of ridiculing the skepticism.

Unrealistic energy policy vs. people’s needs

By David L. Debertin – March 18, 2022 Joe Biden ran a campaign in 2020 based on the idea that fossil fuels are bad for everyone and that the companies producing such energy sources are, therefore, comprised of terrible people.

Green delusion no path to energy independence

By Gregory Wrightstone – March 14, 2022 When President Biden says that the U.S. will become energy independent by way of programs like the Green New Deal, perhaps the first question to ask is, “Does that make sense?” For any thinking person cognizant of even the basic energy facts, the answer should come back, “No.”… Continue Reading

Fossil Fuels Should Evoke Pride, Not Pandering, From Supporters

By Gregory Wrightstone – March 4, 2022 EQT Corp. CEO Toby Rice powerfully argues for adding pipeline capacity to relieve New England of exorbitantly priced liquified natural gas (LNG) — then panders to climate alarmists.

Starved for Energy, Africans Tap Fossil Fuels

Efforts to increase Africans’ access to electricity through use of hydrocarbons continue despite countervailing moves to limit financing of fossil fuel projects.

“Green” Media Misrepresents World’s Energy Reality

Before You Save the Planet, Save the People Who Live on It

By: Vijay Jayaraj – February 12, 2022 Climate change frequently dominates media coverage and political discourse.
