The nonpartisan Congressional Research Services has issued a new report showing the effects of the Obama administration’s “all-of-the-above but nothing-from-below” energy policy on oil and gas production on federal lands.
An article in today’s Wall Street Journal highlights new research performed by the University of Texas showing that America’s natural gas boom is here to stay. Advanced drilling techniques have allowed developers to tap into America’s vast shale reserves.
Over the last several weeks, the plug was pulled on two state-of-the-art coal projects in Texas that were projected to exceed $5.5 billion in private investment and create hundreds of jobs. The reason? The Obama administration's ongoing push for climate regulations that will effectively regulate coal, and thousands of coal jobs, out of existence.
The high cost of EPA regulations is forcing the retirement of a string of coal-fired power plants across the state of Georgia.
As the 112th Congress comes to a close, Americans are looking for solutions to provide certainty in the new year. While there are plenty of issues where a consensus has not yet emerged, there is at least one remaining question where a bipartisan agreement has already been reached – how to best regulate coal ash.
