  • Environmentalists’ War On Fossil Fuels Is Helping Vladimir Putin

    • Date: 13/03/18
    • Drew Johnson, The Wall Street Journal

    The anti-fossil-fuels campaign is neither realistic nor environmentally sound. Blocking pipelines and other energy infrastructure projects raises costs on American families while forcing them to rely on Vladimir Putin to heat their homes. A tanker arrived in Boston Harbor carrying natural gas that would keep residents’ homes warm for the rest of the winter. The […]

  • Saudi Arabia’s Gift To America’s Shale Producers

    It’s amazing how fast we’ve come to take for granted that the United States is now a petroleum-exporting nation. The first crude exported in over 40 years left the Port of Corpus Christi for Italy on a small tanker on December 31, 2015. Exports have risen so fast that now America ships out more petroleum […]

  • ‘Stranded Asset’ Argument Against Coal, Oil And Natural Gas Is Bogus

    • Date: 04/03/18
    • Jude Clemente, Forbes

    The idea of coal, oil, and natural gas reserves becoming “stranded assets” from unanticipated or premature write-downs is bogus.

  • OPEC’s Final Showdown With Shale

    • Date: 25/02/18
    • The Daily Telegraph

    OPEC is heading for a final showdown with shale. Its grand alliance with Russia to cut output has revived its own fortunes temporarily by boosting prices but it has also cranked up drilling across America. That’s good for the world’s largest economy and biggest consumer of crude but bad news for some of the major producers in […]

    • Date: 22/02/18
    • Forbes

    The collapse of the oil industry in California, once our second-most-important producing state, is a very sad thing to see. The U.S. shale revolution has completely passed the state by. Although domestic crude oil production has reached heights not seen since the early-1970s, and will actually be setting new records this year, California’s oil output […]

  • John Constable: Labour’s Energy Nationalisation Plans

    • Date: 18/02/18
    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, has set out his vision for nationalising the UK energy sector. Rather than returning to Attlee’s centrally controlled system he seems determined to steer energy provision, particularly the electricity industry, back towards a form of distributed generation and Municipal Trading that would in practice be an even […]
