    Former White House lawyer David B. Rivkin, Jr. will speak about the next landmark Supreme Court case regarding climate issues, American Electric Power Co. v. Connecticut, on April 13 at the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, D.C. The program runs on the sixth floor of the Environmental Law Institute from noon to 2 p.m. with speakers beginning promptly at 12:15 p.m. On April 19, 2011, the Supreme Court will hear arguments to decide whether states and private parties can sue power companies under federal common law for contributing to global warming and compel them to cap CO2 emissions. Many are...
  • A Man-Made Energy Crisis. Obama’s policy is working . . . to raise energy costs.

    National Review ^ | 03/24/2011 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Gas is well over $4 a gallon in most places in California — and soaring elsewhere as well. But are such high energy prices good or bad? That should be a stupid question. Yet it is not, when the Obama administration has stopped new domestic offshore oil exploration in many American waters, curbed oil leases in the West, and keeps oil-rich areas of Alaska exempt from drilling. Last week, President Obama went to Brazil and declared of that country’s new offshore finds: “With the new oil finds off Brazil, President [Dilma] Rousseff has said that Brazil wants to be a...

    The Energy Crisis is Over! Not because of some humongous breakthrough in alternative energies but because of new ways to access two sources widely used today: oil and natural gas. The recent news story about China's national oil company, Cnooc, purchasing a stake in Chesapeake Energy's Texas shale oil and gas fields and agreeing to pony up most of the capital to develop them underscores what an amazing transformation is taking place in the U.S.' energy picture. The word "revolution" is overused, but it's truly appropriate when applied to these technological breakthroughs: hydraulic fracturing--a.k.a. fracking--and horizontal drilling. With fracking, drillers...

    CARACAS, Venezuela – President Hugo Chavez has turned to his friends in Cuba for help in tackling Venezuela's energy crisis, drawing criticism for seeking advice from the communist-led island that has struggled with its own electricity woes. Chavez gave few details on Wednesday about what is expected of Cuba, but insisted that "it's valuable experience that's serving us well." He said that he spoke for hours Tuesday with Cuban Vice President Ramiro Valdes after his arrival in Venezuela to lead the consulting team. The decision to seek help from Cuba bewildered Venezuelans coping with the nation's power shortage. "It's laughable...

    H. G. Wells lives today in the person of David Lewis Anderson, PhD. Over a hundred years ago, the proto-science fiction work, "The Time Machine" explored heady subjects of Time travel, post Armageddon societies, and evolutionary genetics when applied along class lines. A more fanciful yet forward thinking and eloquent novel could not be imagined at the time, turn of the Century late Victorian England. Yet science fictions have become reality so often, that to even question the premise is now laughable....
  • Abiotic Synthesis Of Methane: New Evidence Supports 19th-Century Idea On Formation Of Oil

    Science Daily ^ | 11/2009
    Washington, D.C. are reporting laboratory evidence supporting the possibility that some of Earth's oil and natural gas may have formed in a way much different than the traditional process described in science textbooks. Their study is scheduled for Nov./Dec. issue of ACS' Energy & Fuels, a bi-monthly publication. Anurag Sharma and colleagues note that the traditional process involves biology: Prehistoric plants died and changed into oil and gas while sandwiched between layers of rock in the hot, high-pressure environment deep below Earth's surface. Some scientists, however, believe that oil and gas originated in other ways, including chemical reactions between carbon...

    "In November 1978, President Carter named the Bilderberg group's George Ball, another member of the Trilateral Commission, to head a special White House Iran task force under the National Security Council's Brzezinski. Ball recommended that Washington drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the fundamentalistic Islamic opposition of Ayatollah Khomeini. Robert Bowie from the CIA was one of the lead 'case officers' in the new CIA-led coup against the man their covert actions had placed into power 25 years earlier. Their scheme was based on a detailed study of the phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalism, as presented by British...

    Russia’s Unclenched Fist by: Daniel Allen, February 13, 2009 The Russian invasion of Georgia was a wakeup call to policy makers across the United States, Europe and Central Asia. Russia never ceased to be a region of extreme concern, but other countries—Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea—have dominated headlines and discussions recently. The incoming Obama administration, which plans to depart heavily from the policies of the previous administration, has inspired speculation across Washington on what the future of U.S. policy in all areas should involve. U.S. policy toward Russia is no exception. Experts gathered this week at a conference hosted by...

    The Other Gas Wars by: Alanna Hultz, February 10, 2009 The most recent gas war between Russia and Ukraine took place January 1st after political tension caused gas price negotiations between the two countries to fall apart and Russia cut gas flows to Ukraine. A few days later, Russia stopped the flow of gas to Europe leaving at least 18 Eastern European Nations with scarce supplies. At an American Enterprise Institute event, Anders Aslund, a senior fellow at the Peter G. Peterson Institute for International Economics discussed how the gas wars affected Russia and Ukraine. AEI describes itself as a...

    Confronting the Bear by: Daniel Allen, January 30, 2009 Fittingly, 2009 began with an energy crisis. In the middle of a bitter winter, Russia shut off its gas supply to Ukraine, affecting much of the rest of Eastern Europe, over disputed payment agreements. This set the stage for discussions across Europe, Central Asia and the U.S. about the future of energy security for Europe, how Europe and America can counter Russian aggression and what must be done to improve relations between Central Asia and the West. In a conference this week at The Heritage Foundation, Dr. Frederick Starr, an expert...

    The number of scientists that are coming out against the “undisputed fact” and “closed discussion” of global warming keeps getting larger as time passes. Last week, we had the 650 scientists in a Senate report who opposed global warming alarmist claims. Even the scientist at the helm of the UN's global warming panel has expressed some caution on jumping to conclusions based on the IPCC’s data.

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA is an avowed socialist, openly talking about applying marxist dogma and principle to our free market. He has stated, among other things, that he openly wants all of the following: Redistribution of Wealth (in his 2001 NPR interview) That he wants to bankrupt the traditional coal industry (in the closing days of the campaign). That he wants off shore drilling and ANWR drilling curtailed (before and during the campaign). That the rest of th world will not put up with Americans driving SUVs, keeping their houses warm, or enjoying their life styles (during the campaign). That...

    Nuclear Energy on Demand by: Lance Nation, October 24, 2008 Considered by many to be the most important issue facing America after the economy and the War on Terror, the energy “crisis” is in full motion. And, what happens when a capitalist society determines that a problem needs a solution? Someone invents it. Then someone else commercializes it of course. This is precisely what Hyperion Power Generation, Inc. did. Recently, Hyperion Power Generation, Inc. acquired the exclusive rights to commercialize Dr. Otis “Pete” Peterson’s Hyperion Power Module (HPM). Dubbed “nuclear in a box,” the Hyperion Power Module is a hot...

    Amid the energy crisis, Democrats are losing the high ground on the environment to a GOP that is pushing oil drilling. As the election enters its endgame, Democrats and their environmental allies face a political challenge they could hardly have imagined just a few months ago. America's growing dependence on fossil fuels, once viewed as a Democratic trump card held alongside the Iraq war and the deflating economy, has become a lodestone instead. Republicans stole the energy issue from Democrats by proposing expanded drilling -- particularly lifting bans on offshore oil drilling -- to bring down gasoline prices. Whereas Barack...
  • Russia 'backs Georgia peace plan'

    08/12/2008 2:00:08 PM PDT · by austrian · 51 replies · 717+ views
    Russia has approved a plan intended to end fighting with Georgia, brokered by French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Mr Sarkozy, whose country holds the EU presidency, is now in Tbilisi trying to persuade Georgians to accept the deal. Under the plan, both sides would agree not to use force, and all troops would return to the positions they were in before the conflict began last week. Earlier, Russia announced its military activity in the area was completed and witnesses reported troops pulling back. But despite the diplomacy and apparent withdrawal, rhetoric on both sides has remained fiery and analysts predicted a...

    WASHINGTON, DC –Today, United States Senator Ken Salazar declared victory for the communities of Colorado’s Western Slope. Efforts by Reps. John Salazar and Mark Udall and Senator Salazar will now ensure that language is included in the omnibus spending bill that will prohibit the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from issuing any final regulations for commercial-scale leasing of oil shale and from offering any commercial oil shale leases during fiscal year 2008. Senator Salazar was also able to work in language that specifically reiterates how important it is for the Department of Interior and BLM to cooperate more fully with...

    BUSKIRK, N.Y. - A few years ago, Kathleen Breault was just another suburban grandma, driving countless hours every week, stopping for lunch at McDonald's, buying clothes at the mall, watching TV in the evenings. That was before Breault heard an author talk about the bleak future of the world's oil supply. Now, she's preparing for the world as we know it to disappear. Breault cut her driving time in half. She switched to a diet of locally grown foods near her upstate New York home and lost 70 pounds. She sliced up her credit cards, banished her television and swore...

    Do you remember watching President Jimmy Carter talking to us from the Oval Office in a sweater? Remember how the energy crisis disappeared when Ronald Reagan took office and removed some of the stupid regulations and the taxes? Here we go again. A few weeks ago I published a piece by a psychiatrist who thought modern liberalism was a form of mental illness. Well, a popular definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I don't really think liberal Democrats are pushing us further and further into an energy...
