    A long-time goal for many energy minded conservatives may finally be on the horizon this week as congress considers lifting the more than forty year old ban on crude oil exports as part of the next spending bill. This would be great news for jobs and the economy, not to mention giving us some leverage to help out our allies who currently rely on Russian and middle eastern suppliers. Unfortunately, such a boon still requires help from at least some of the Democrats and their attitude is less than positive. The Hill was interviewing a few of them on Thursday...

    How did this manage to find its way into print? Civilization was pretty great while it lasted, wasn't it? Too bad it's not going to for much longer. According to a new study sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, we only have a few decades left before everything we know and hold dear collapses. The report, written by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center along with a team of natural and social scientists, explains that modern civilization is doomed. And there's not just one particular group to blame, but the entire fundamental structure and nature...
  • What If Oil and Natural Gas Are Renewable Resources? (Evidence mounting on limitless supply of oil)

    President Barack Obama and his green energy confederates are determined to scare the public about a declining supply of "fossil fuels." If we accept the idea that oil is produced by the conversion of organic matter -- from plants to dinosaurs -- under extreme pressure, we must also accept the idea that there is a limited supply of oil and that we've got to do everything we can to find a replacement for fossil fuels before we run out. The evidence is mounting that not only do we have more than a century's worth of recoverable oil in the United...
  • FORBES: A standard for 'sticker shock.' Obama's energy mandates will cost you

    Clean energy and federal standards are hot topics in the nation's capital these days. One issue tossed around by policy wonks is the possibility of creating a national standard for how much electricity must be obtained from renewable resources. However, any consideration of a federal renewable electricity standard (RES) must start with a basic truth about energy production and usage: Markets talk; mandates shock. Take a look at the federal mandate to add ethanol to gasoline. Most people (except those in Congress) agree it helped lead to last year's global food-price explosion while also degrading the environment. Not to mention...

I keep hearing how oil dependent we are and how higher consumption is driving up prices... I hear how it is adversely affecting 75% of americans, It seems like if that was the case, 75% of americans would cut the amount they use! I know I cant be the only person in america that has drastically cut the amount of fuel I use over the past year. I want to know...

    The cost of turning America green In an Aug. 17 editorial, the New York Times chastised President Bush for not pushing the $8 billion Everglades Restoration Program. The editorial stated that "despite opposition from the sugar barons and the developers, Congress stipulated that restoration was to be the plan's overriding purpose, and that nature, not commerce, would have first claim on the water." An op-ed by Louis Uchitelle, in the same edition, began this way: "Manufacturing is slowly disappearing in the United States." Uchitelle went on to report that more than half the manufactured goods purchased by Americans are imported,...
