Following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that caused the severe accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear reactor in northeastern Japan, all nuclear reactors were gradually switched off for inspections. No commercial reactor has been online in Japan for nearly two years. Due to safety concerns, the country’s nuclear power generation has been at a standstill. Meanwhile, new regulatory standards have been developed and reactors are undergoing inspections. Prior to 2011, nuclear power provided nearly one third of Japan’s electricity. Lost power-generation capacity has been replaced by importing pricey fossil fuels. Japan has few natural resources of its own.…

To win the war on energy you need to name the enemy

Obama Energy Regulations

“If you don’t call it something, you can’t connect the dots,” said Rudy Giuliani talking about ISIS. “If you can’t connect the dots, you can’t really combat it … you can’t have the battle of ideas … If you are going to debate it, you have to call it what it is.” The same can be said about the organized attack on fossil fuel development and use in America. If you don’t acknowledge a battle of ideas exists, you can’t connect the dots, and you can’t really combat it. It has recently been revealed that Russia is laundering tens of…

Obama Keystone veto

After six years of dithering, the Keystone pipeline project has finally cleared both the Senate and the House with strong bipartisan support—mere percentage points away from a veto-proof majority. Now it goes to the White House where President Obama has vowed to veto it. We won’t have to wait long. He has ten days to make a decision. The Keystone pipeline should have never had to be an issue in Congress. Because it crosses an international border, the pipeline requires the approval of the State Department—not the president. However, since the Secretary of State—first Hillary Clinton and now John Kerry—serves…

Obama Claus

Just in time for Christmas, Obama Claus delivered lumps of coal to the millions of unemployed and under-employed Americans, while putting a giant gift-wrapped present under the tree of his radical environmental buddies. Calling the Keystone XL pipeline nothing more than a bunch of “hype,” Obama stated that construction of the pipeline would only create a “couple thousand” jobs. He went on to say that a better way to create long-term, paying jobs for American workers would be to invest in America’s infrastructure: “When you consider what we could be doing rebuilding our roads and bridges around the country, something the…

While we weren’t paying attention, post-war Iraq grew into a major force in the global oil market. Reaching a 30-year high, its production and exports have climbed steadily since 2011—making Iraq the second largest producer in OPEC, the seventh globally. The International Energy Agency (EIA) has forecast that Iraq has the fifth-largest proven oil reserves. Just one year ago, Iraq was celebrating its increased production. At a ceremony in Baghdad, Thamir Gladhban, Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Commission on Energy, touted expected production of 4.5 million barrels per day by the end of 2014. Earlier this year it was announced that…
