The Real Fuel of the Future: Natural Gas

by Mark P. Mills
Real Clear Public Affairs

“Bottom Line: The U.S. is set to become the world’s largest exporter of natural gas, which is an increasingly critical fuel for growing economies. U.S. natural gas dominance poses numerous benefits for the domestic economy, national security, and global populations. Policymakers should reduce environmental and export regulations on natural gas to accelerate its benefits,” according to Real Clear Public Affairs.

Are Wind Turbines a Danger to Wildlife? Ask the Dogs.

by Sarah Zhang
The Atlantic

“As turbines proliferate across the country, understanding their effect on wildlife is more important than ever. In the early days of turbines, scientists had focused on the danger they posed to eagles and other raptors—but it turns out those big bird carcasses were simply the easiest for humans to spot,” according to The Atlantic.

Democrats’ Carbon Border Tax Would Lead to Higher Costs for Americans

by Jordan McGillis
The American Spectator

“Fundamentally, a carbon border tax is a mechanism by which a government raises prices for importers on goods made with affordable, carbon-based energy in other countries. Facing new costs themselves, those importers inevitably pass on higher prices to the rest of us. The plan Democrats introduced Monday includes new taxes on imports of petroleum, natural gas, and coal but also on cement, iron, steel, and aluminum — industrial staples the prices of which factor into countless goods Americans buy each day. The New York Times reports that such products make up 12 percent of all imports to the United States,” according to The American Spectator.

Another Biden Administration eco-con

by Paul Driesen
CFACT

“Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to ‘permanently protect’ at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This ’30 X 30 Plan’ appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not ‘protected,’ even though the vast majority of federal lands are already effectively off limits to mining, drilling, timber harvesting and even grazing, by virtue of policies heavily tilted toward preservation and against any development,” according to CFACT.

Carbon Capture: The Key Answer on Climate Change

by Dan Ervin
Real Clear Energy

“It is a remarkable paradox: At a time when the rest of the world is looking toward America for leadership in combating global warming, the environmental movement refuses to accept the only technology that could make a real difference in reducing carbon emissions from coal and other fossil fuels that are the foundation of the global energy system.  Coal plants with carbon capture technology along with advanced nuclear reactors can reliably provide all of the electricity needed globally with little or no CO2 emissions.  These technologies will work in almost any region in the world,” according to Real Clear Energy.

EU Unveils Sweeping Economic Plan to Combat Climate Change

by Matthew Dalton and Sha Hua
The Wall Street Journal

“The plan also aims to project the bloc’s stance on slashing emissions abroad by imposing the world’s first tax on imports based on the greenhouse gases emitted to make them. The move is contentious as countries prepare to convene at a climate summit in November in Glasgow, Scotland, where the U.S. and Europe want to convince China and poorer countries to make ambitious new pledges to cut emissions,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Drilling permit approvals have grown under Biden — here’s what it means

by Josh Siegel
Washington Examiner

“While that might seem surprising, it shouldn’t be. Interior officials have repeatedly sought to assure lawmakers from oil and gas states that the agency continues to approve permits to drill on existing leases at a steady pace even as it has suspended the issuance of new leases,” according to the Washington Examiner.

New York firearm manufacturer fears bankruptcy from Cuomo gun law

by Jake Dima
Washington Examiner

According to the Washington Examiner, “On Tuesday, the Democrat  [Governor Cuomo] enacted a first-of-its-kind executive order that would partially repeal the federal immunity shielding gun companies from frivolous lawsuits. The law allows violence victims to sue on the grounds of ‘public nuisance’ or actions that harm the general population, which could be burdensome to small businesses, the gun manufacturer said.”
