An absolutely phony group called the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis has done a hit job on an important proposed Ohio cracker project.

I just read a recent article about a group called the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis and their study concluding a proposed Ohio cracker wouldn’t produce any jobs. The headline is “Cracker plant won’t bring petrochemical jobs boom to Ohio, experts warn,” which told immediately the “study” was totally political. First, no organization with a name such as that is ever anything but political. Secondly, to conclude an Ohio cracker wouldn’t produce jobs is like saying you can run your car on water instead of gasoline.

[Editor’s Note: “Seven Principles of Sound Environmental Policy,”?a study by Jason Hayes and Todd Myers on free-market environmentalism sets out seven critical principles.]

Two leading free-market environmental scholars are?Jason Hayes, Director of Environmental Policy at?Mackinac Center for Public Policy?(Midland, Michigan) and?Todd Myers, Director of the Center for the Environment at?Washington Policy Center?(Seattle, Washington). The post below?excerpts?from their recent joint study,?Sound Environmental Policy.

“… enlisting the power of free markets, property rights and rapid technological advances strengthens and improves environmental management at all levels.”

We recognize and embrace our responsibility to care for environmentally beautiful and productive lands. Proper stewardship of our forests, rivers, rangelands and open spaces is an essential part of our everyday life. We care for the environment and believe that individuals and organizations possess the local knowledge needed to make effective stewardship decisions. Moving land use and management decisions from state bureaucracies to individuals in the field will incentivize the best decisions and promote long-term benefits for our natural resources.

Offshore Wind Could Have Major Adverse Impact on Commercial Fisheries

?...

[Editor’s Note: Offshore wind is hugely expensive compared to natural gas and could have major adverse impacts on commercial fisheries according to a government study.]

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM)?draft supplemental environmental review?for Vineyard Wind off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts indicates that offshore wind farms could have a?major “adverse” impact on commercial fisheries. The study outlines the effects that the offshore wind sector in the Northeast could have on other industries, the environment, and marine life. It notes that offshore wind could result in major cumulative impacts to commercial and recreational fishing, scientific research, and in some cases environmental justice.

Cabot Oil & Gas, in cooperation with Penn’s Northeast and the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce hosted a Think About Energy Briefing on economic reopening. The following is reposted from the Think About Energy site.

The webinar featured U.S. Congressman Dan Meuser (PA-09), Penn’s Northeast President and CEO John Augustine and Senior Vice President of Public Affairs and Mobilization at the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Keith Smith.

Phil Murphy, the Pander Bear, Plays Racial Politics with Energy

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher,?Marcellus Drilling News?(MDN)

 

Phil Murphy, another New Jersey governor from Wall Street has decided to play racial politics with bill that will halt revitalization of poor communities.

Not even Andrew Cuomo, as grossly corrupt as he is, has thought up something this vile and evil–using the currently toxic environment of race relations across our country as a means to block all new fossil fuel energy projects–specifically pipelines, compressor stations and power generating plants–by declaring such projects racist by definition. That’s what will happen in New Jersey if a new bill, Senate Bill 232, becomes law.

The US Supreme Court recently ruled 7-2 to reverse a lower court ruling that had invalidated a permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which will bring West Virginia natural gas to Virginia and North Carolina, for home heating, factory power, electricity generation and manufacturing petrochemical feedstocks.

Environmentalists had claimed the US Forest Service had no authority to issue the permit, because a 0.1-mile (530-foot) segment would cross 600 feet below the 2,200-mile-long Appalachian Trail, which is administered by the National Park Service. Justice Thomas’s majority opinion scuttled that assertion.

South Australia Solar Fiasco Suggests What’s Ahead for New York

If you’re looking to see into New York State’s energy future, look no further than South Australia where green political correctness has turned dark.

South Australia has a huge energy problem. It has heavily subsidized solar energy, just like New York State. It is now producing so much solar electricity when it isn’t needed, in fact, that it has to be effectively turned off, but South Australia is nonetheless threatened with electric blackouts. Why? Because the fundamental problems with renewables are that they don’t make any economic sense whatsoever and they are intermittent. That is to say they produce energy at the wrong time and, therefore, it is very costly and does more harm than good. Welcome to New York’s future.
