Green Energy raises taxes, kills birds, and sucks America’s economy – but Obama pushes it

by Marita Noon The whole idea of green energy—renewable resources—grew out of an energy reality that was much different from today’s.

Fracking: environmentally safe and economically stimulating

by Marita Noon On the very same day that the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) announces: “US Rises to No. 1 Energy Producer”—thanks to the shale boom made possible through a technology known as hydraulic fracturing—an environmental group released a report calling for a complete ban of the practice, which would effectively shut down the oil-and-gas …

North America: an oil and gas powerhouse

by Marita Noon Perhaps you read the USA Today editorial on August 19 that concludes with: “the most important gains could come from radical shifts that are as unanticipated as was North America’s emergence as an oil and gas powerhouse.” It points out “that free enterprise has a way of solving problems that is beyond …

Keystone XL: not just a pipeline, a life-line

Jobs will be created. Families will benefit. Local businesses and professions will gain business. Governments will increase their tax receipts. The US economy will be fueled to a larger extent by oil from a nearby friendly country, thereby improving national security. Coupled with increased oil production in this county, we will move closer to energy self-sufficiency—while additional exports of petroleum products will help reduce the trade deficit.

Atlanta Tea Party goes fracking Liberal

by Marita Noon   Regular readers of my weekly column may be shocked at my suggestion: “please don’t frack.” But, bear with me.

Cheap energy: a human right for the public good

by Marita Noon A few months ago, in his State of the Union address, President Obama proudly pledged to tackle climate change—despite opposition from Republicans.

BP selling its US wind energy assets – A waste of money

by Marita Noon British Petroleum is still one of the world’s biggest oil companies. But as early as the late 1990s they didn’t want you think of them that way. CEO, Lord John Browne of Madingley, argued: “the transition to alternatives could be accelerated by changing industry practices today.” While other oil companies eschewed climate …

Their ultimate goal is to stop all …
