Dear Northeast, How’s that solar working out for ya?

A couple of months ago, National Grid, one of Massachusetts’ two dominant utilities, announced rate increases of a “whopping” 37 percent over last year. Other utilities in the region are expected to follow suit. Why, when natural gas prices are at historic lows that have been predicted to lower electricity rates, is the Northeast facing double-digit increases? Changes have been mandated, but the replacements aren’t ready yet. New England has seen one big power plant close within the past year: Salem Harbor Power Station in Salem, Massachusetts—which went “dark” on June 1. Another major closure is scheduled within weeks: Vermont…

A fake solution to a fake problem from a fake president

Global warming hoax

Barack Obama: the savior of the world . . . oh, I’m sorry. I was reading from the MSNBC script. Let’s start again. The self-proclaimed savior of the environment—remember when he promised to stop the rising ocean levels?—announced a worthless agreement with China to fight global warming. Worthless, because it does nothing to actually stop global warming. It will, however, provide cover for the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) as it prepares to take some of the most extreme steps to shut down power plants with new rules on ozone, cross-state air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Not content with this so-called…

Shouldn’t we be fighting a war on terrorism not on fossil fuels?

“You are responsible for President Obama’s re-election,” I told 150 folks from the oil and gas industry —most of whom were conservative Republicans. I spoke to them on October 15 in San Angelo, TX. A reporter covering the event wrote that I “stunned the crowd by telling them they were largely responsible for getting the president re-elected, and asking them if they knew how they had helped.” He continued: “The room was very quiet for several moments as Noon waited to see if anyone would volunteer an answer.” We know President Obama has been waging a war on coal—with tens…

Regcession—why Americans aren’t feeling Obama’s “vigorous recovery”

President Obama is trying, according to CNN, to “convince voters of a vigorous recovery that a majority still doubts.” Describing comments the president made on October 2 at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in Chicago, CNN calls his attempt, the “political problem inherent in having to describe an economic recovery that many Americans still aren’t feeling.” The coverage points to polling data that shows the public still sees that the economy is “poor”—with 56 percent disapproving of how Obama has handled the economy. Perhaps people are beginning to sense what a new documentary makes clear. We may not officially…

Texas scores one over environmental extremists

“When the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard (DSL) was being considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA),” Chris Bryan, agency spokesman for the Texas Comptroller, told me, “significant parts of the Texas economy were placed at risk.” On September 30, District of Columbia District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras ruled against the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Defenders of Wildlife. The groups brought litigation in the hopes of requiring the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to reverse its 2012 decision not to list the lizard as endangered. The 2012 decision was the first time that community engagement beat back…
