Biden’s oil policies threaten the next energy crisis, trade group warns

Biden’s oil policies threaten the next energy crisis, trade group warns Bloomberg, 10 January 2024 US oil and gas production is booming, but policies being imposed now could jeopardize the country’s energy might, the industry’s top trade group is warning Washington. That sobering outlook came from the American Petroleum Institute Wednesday, as it holds an […]

Dr. Willie Soon on the origins of ‘fossil fuels’ – We should be careful not to assume all of the hydrocarbons on Earth are ‘fossil fuels’ Dr. Soon’s comments on the discussion of the origin of fossil fuels In the first part of the interview, Tucker Carlson asked Dr. Soon some questions about the possibility that hydrocarbons (gas, oil and coal) could be produced “abiogenically” as opposed to requiring a biological source.   Gas, oil and coal are commonly referred […]

Oil and gas ‘not the problem’ for climate, says UK’s net zero minister Oil and gas are “not the problem” for the climate, but the carbon emissions arising from them are, the UK’s net zero minister has told MPs. In words that suggested the UK could place yet more emphasis on technologies to capture and store carbon, Graham Stuart said fossil fuel production was not driving climate […]

Analysis: California’s climate/energy policies are a ‘National Security Risk for America’ – State ‘has increased crude oil imports from foreign countries from 5% in 1992 to more than 75% today’

Ronald Stein:  Historically, California has been successfully reducing in-state oil production over the decades and has increased crude oil imports from foreign countries from 5 percent in 1992 to more than 75 percent today to meet the California consumption demand.  Governor Gavin Newsom, by continually seeking further decreases of in-state oil production, Newsom’s emissions policies continue to force California, the 4th largest economy in the world, to be the only state in contiguous America that imports most of its crude oil feedstock to in-state refineries from foreign countries. …

California has more than 140 airports with huge fuel demands of more than 13 billion gallons of aviation fuel per year that includes these major airports:

  • 9 International airports
  • 41 Military airports

In addition, California has three of the largest shipping ports in America, with #1 Los Angeles. #2 Long Beach, and #7 Oakland. Ships arriving and departing from the shipping ports up and down the coast from San Diego to San Francisco require massive amounts of lower grade bunker fuels. … 

The California Air Quality Management District (AQMD) policies have the potential to further reduce in-state refinery capacity, so the State can be more dependent on Asia for the fuels and petrochemical demands of the State. …

With more in-state refinery closures imminent under Newsom’s watch, California can look toward Asia’s 88 new refineries for the manufactured fuels used by California’s 9 International airports, 41 Military airports, and 3 of the largest shipping terminals in America for manufactured oil derivatives that are the basis of most products in our materialistic society,

Biden already drained Strategic Petroleum Reserve without refilling it — Now he is draining private oil company reserves without allowing companies to find & drill new reserves

Biden is draining our oil reserves for his climate agenda: 1. Last year, Biden drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve without refilling it. 2. Now he is draining private oil company reserves without allowing the companies to find and drill new reserves. 3. That is why Exxon… — Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) October 28, 2023  

Going All In With Peak Fossil Fuels by 2030: The International Energy Agency bets its reputation on an aggressive prediction By ROGER PIELKE JR. Excerpt: Earlier this week the International Energy Agency (IEA), headquartered in Paris and overseen by the OECD, issued a bold prediction in its 2023 World Energy Outlook (emphasis added): The combination of growing momentum behind clean energy technologies and structural economic shifts around the world has major implications for fossil fuels, with peaks in […]

Reality Bites: Why Wind, Solar, And Electric Car Advocates Must Also Love Fossil Fuels – ‘Blocking fossil fuel development increases
cost for renewables’ By Jude Clemente Let’s start with the basics: fossil fuels supply 80% of the world’s energy and about 80% of the energy consumed in the U.S. Energy is the driving force of modern life, so fossil fuels are thus the inherent inputs to just about everything that we do, make, and consume. One could […]
