Advocates of "market-based" climate solutions paint pastel pictures reflecting smoothly adjusting macro-economic models. But commodity markets for oil and gas don't work that way. Schumpeter's destructive engine of capitalism is about to show its ugly side.

"If We Destroy Creation, Creation Will Destroy Us"

Unless the global community strikes an effective deal to rein in its carbon emissions, unchecked climate change could usher in a hellish world of lethal heat, soaring food prices, and the failure of even wealthy states.

ExxonMobil Is Still Spending Millions of Dollars on Climate Science Deniers

Elliott Negin

ExxonMobil no longer funds climate change deniers?! Is that right? Technically, perhaps, because practically no one can say with a straight face that global warming isn't happening anymore. Most, if not all, of the people who used to deny the reality of climate change have morphed into climate science deniers.

If policymakers around the world fail to take action to reduce global emissions, the market for LNG could be much larger than CTI predicts. In fact, that could be the scenario which the industry is betting on.

Dear Humans, Industry, Not Your Activities, Is Causing Climate Change

Aaron Huertas | Posted 06.07.2015 | Green
Aaron Huertas

Scientists and climate policy wonks usually say global warming is caused by "human activities." This shorthand obscures an important point: that while we humans are certainly responsible for climate change on some level, just a few of us, particularly in industry and government, are a lot more responsible than the rest of us.

Can Big Oil Keep Paying High Dividends?

James Stafford | Posted 05.20.2015 | Business

The utter collapse in oil prices has compelled the Italian oil company Eni to slash its dividend, becoming the first major oil company to do so. With the biggest oil companies facing giant holes in their balance sheets, could Eni merely be the first among many to make such a move?

Are the Russians coming to Texas riding the tailwinds of fracking? That depends on who you ask, as some believe Russian forces were behind the anti-fracking vote in Denton, while a $15 million investment in new Texas fracking technology by Roman Abramovich perhaps tells another story.

More Lies From ALEC About Climate Change

Elliott Negin | Posted 01.13.2015 | Green
Elliott Negin

If ALEC were an honest broker, it would recommend market-based solutions, like the Republican-inspired, acid rain cap-and-trade program championed by President George H.W. Bush. But that's not likely going to happen, because doing so would alienate its fossil fuel industry and trade association members.

Fossil Fuel Companies Must Evolve or Perish

Fossil fuel companies -- much like your stubborn, elderly relative that refuses to change his eating habits despite the doctor's warnings of a heart attack -- have a choice to make. They can either begin to pivot out of high-cost, high-polluting projects to the clean energy sources that will fuel our future, or they can wait until it's too late.
