U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy warned that the requirements to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants will be enforced whether or not states chose to cooperate. "If folks think ... [the Clean Power Plan] isn't going to be implemented, I think they need to look at the history of the Clean Air Act more carefully," she said.
The failure of high cost North American producers to cut production in an oversupplied world oil market is setting the stage for another leg down in oil prices.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. @@ Climate Change, the Elevator Pitch: Richard Alley, Climate Scientist -- and R...
Next-generation water-processing technology coming from within the oil industry promises not only to help solve Texas' drought problem by accessing and desalinating brackish and slightly salty water sources deep under the dry Texan surface but to go one step further by desalinating ocean water and turning dirty water into potable water.
I hate that we are leaving such a mess to our children and grandchildren. Solution: Congress should stop acting like children and do their jobs.

How things have changed in a matter of mere months. With demand stagnant and excess production the story of the moment, the very strategy that had generated record-breaking profits has suddenly become hopelessly dysfunctional.
I know it sounds counterintuitive to say that high gas prices are a good thing. Why would high prices on anything be good? The reason is simple: Prices help shape consumer behavior in lots of areas, including clothing, food and housing. Is there any doubt that high real estate prices are partially responsible for the tiny house movement?
Why not instead create better investment opportunities for renewable and alternate energy resources, as well as technologies that are increasingly less dependent on oil? If we can do that and flood the market with these technologies, would we achieve the same result?
