Building a world of resilient communities

The Secret of the Great American Fracking Bubble

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 09:29:12 +0000

As a whole, the American fracking experiment has been a financial disaster for many of its investors, who have been plagued by the industry’s heavy borrowing, low returns, and bankruptcies, and the path to becoming profitable is lined with significant potential hurdles.




These States want to Make Planning a Pipeline Protest a Crime

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:38:30 +0000

As pipeline protests continue to delay and, sometimes, stop energy projects in their tracks, the fossil fuel industry and Republican lawmakers are looking for new ways to clamp down on environmental protest.




Cursed to Live in Interesting Times

In this article I connect the fall in the growth rate, with its roots in the rising costs of energy extraction and generation, to declining resilience in the economic system. These are in turn related to a more conflict ridden geo-politics.




It’s Springtime in Washington, Time for a Climate Change Update

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:58:44 +0000

(image)

I thought it helpful to provide a rundown of the remaining legislative days’ events and offer a bit of commentary about what Congress and the White House/executive branch will be doing between now and November. Having some idea of what our elected leaders and representatives are likely to be up to in Capital City should help readers plan what they might want to be up to politically themselves.




Landowners Question If Pipeline Companies Seizing Land to Export Oil and Gas Counts as ‘Public Good’

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 12:21:55 +0000

The Bayou Bridge pipeline will carry oil across southern Louisiana from Lake Charles, near the Texas border, to St. James along the Mississippi River. Rosinski’s home in Arcadia Parish is west of the Atchafalaya Basin, an environmentally sensitive National Heritage Area. Construction there continues despite an ongoing legal challenge against building the pipeline through the basin.




The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics – The Gaping Hole in the Middle of the Circular Economy

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 12:21:03 +0000

(image)

The ‘circular economy’ is, in my opinion, a ruse to make affluent consumers feel that they can keep consuming without the need to change their habits. Nothing could be further from the truth, and the central reason for that is the necessity for energy to power economic activity.




You Can’t Talk about Teacher Strikes without Talking about the Fossil Fuel Industry

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 09:12:48 +0000

(image)

But beyond illuminating the often dismal conditions under which teachers in this country are often forced to work, the walkouts in Oklahoma and West Virginia illuminate something else — what happens when states prioritize tax breaks for fossil fuel companies over education.




Peak Oil Review: 16 April 2018

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 13:04:20 +0000

Oil prices rose by nearly $5 a barrel on concerns that a US and allied attack on Syrian military installations would lead to a wider war. Futures prices closed Friday at $67.39 in New York and $72.58 in London setting multi-year highs. 




What Will we Do with all those Solar Panels when their Useful Life is Over?

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 12:33:45 +0000

(image)

But the solar panels generating that power don’t last forever. The industry standard life span is about 25 to 30 years, and that means that some of the panels installed at the early end of the current boom aren’t long from being retired.




CAFE OLÉ: Auto Emission Standards and More (Part 2)

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 11:36:50 +0000

(image)

The pending battle between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the Trump administration bears following. At a minimum, the conflict will determine whether the state or the administration ends up setting the defacto national 2025 fuel efficiency standard.




Site C, Other Dams Symptoms of Broken Democracy, Says Former Regulator

David Vardy is one of those rare individuals who believes that when a government makes a catastrophic mistake, all citizens are responsible. The 78-year-old former civil servant also argues “that in a democracy the true patriot is the one who dissents openly and is not silenced by fear and acceptance.”
