Republicans in the U.S. Senate didn’t want the truth to come out. Not one single senate Republican voted in favor of the Whitehouse amendment. They killed the legislation, voting to maintain the coverup of payoffs to politicians from dirty fossil fuel corporations.
In the 20th century, America discovered how to harness the power of fossil fuels. It was a powerful source of energy – for its time. That was generations ago, however, and America’s energy needs have changed. Coal, methane, and crude oil don’t meet our century’s
The out-of-control flames have grown so hot that the offshore drilling platform has now begun to collapse. Will the entire thing explode and go down in flames as the Deepwater Horizon did?
The uncontrolled release of the natural gas into the water, and then into the air, is significant because natural gas emissions contribute to global warming. Natural gas consists primarily of methane, which is an even more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
Barack Obama’s selection of Ernest Moniz as Secretary of Energy suggests that his idealistic comments about fighting climate change, in the State of the Union Address and his inaugural speech this year, were just more empty promises.
This week, Democrats have proclaimed that, after four years of inaction, President Barack Obama is finally ready to do something about the growing crisis of climate change. Their evidence: Obama talked about climate change in his State of the Union Address. Talk about climate change,
Barack Obama gives us his new campaign commercial, Forward, in which he celebrates the expansion of fossil fuels like crude oil and gas. How is that forward?!?
Communities near Glacier National Park need the natural gas that comes through that pipeline, but they also need the water that comes from the glaciers on the nearby mountains. When those glaciers are gone, where are they going to get their drinking water?
Another fossil fuel leak has been taking place on another offshore drilling rig just 50 nautical miles away from the Montara rig which has been the source of the major oil spill. The gas leak has been going on for about seven weeks, without the public being informed.
Currently, there is a special exemption for fracking fluid that allows Halliburton to keep the contents of fracking fluid a secret from the public, even though fracking fluid is believed to contain many chemicals that are dangerous to human beings. In the fracking process, ground water used to drinking often becomes contaminated with fracking fluid, so it’s an important issue.
Remember back in the fall of 2008, how the handlers of Sarah Palin groped about desperately, trying to find evidence of any accomplishment of hers in office? Republican front operations like “CNSNews” thought they had a good “accomplishment” to talk about: the natural gas pipeline
