In fact, I'd wager that New York has more rain than fracking gas. And I imagine it'll still have more rain than fracking gas 50 years from now. When I'm old.

Short answer: Because that's the easiest way to export the finished product - oil - to China. The "easiest" route between Alberta and Shanghai is via American ranches, American farms, American rivers and forests. Surprise. It's the easiest because the lobbyists have greased the wheels in Washington, big time. Why not just ship it to British Columbia instead ? In a word, gravity. The Alberta tar sands are about 1,000 feet above sea level – which means that going to the Texas … [Read more...] about Why Canadians Are Hell Bent on Piping Tar Balls to a Refinery on the Gulf of Mexico
The WND Money article " Obama lets Chinese own U.S. energy resources" | Beijing acquiring major ownership in oil, natural gas across nation| by Jerome R. Corsi | January 22, 2013 is causing a stir among fracking opponents. “Allowing China to have equity interests in U.S. energy production is a reversal of the Bush administration’s policy.

And a tax on methane emissions - the percent tax equals the leakage. James Hansen's Plan to Avoid Cooking the Planet Earlier this year I received a message from a long-time reader of my Communications , who was persuaded of the urgency of the climate problem.

That's Tom Shepstone's new gig. Unable to actually frack the Catskills - on account of the fact that there isn't any shale there worth fracking, this bankrupt, double dipping, dis-accredited, semi pro gas bag has signed on to help import Chinese via a "buy green cards for your entire family" immigration scheme. And no, I am not making any of this up. For a change. Hey, it could be a hole fracking lot worse: the frackers could have turned Grossingers into a gigantic Man Camp. Which could have … [Read more...] about Export Gas To China. Import Chinese to Catskills. Frak Flak Diversifies.
While the US remains a net importer of 5 million barrels of crude oil a day from the Mideast and Venezuela, etc. the frackers are pushing Congress to lift a ban on exporting US crude oil reserves overseas. Fracked crude reserves that the frackers have grossly overstated. We import from Angola, Kuwait, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Iraq, Libya.
