Comments on: The American energy story Obama won’t tell the world http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/28/the-american-energy-story-obama-wont-tell-the-world/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TruthSeeker52 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/28/the-american-energy-story-obama-wont-tell-the-world/#comment-1123426 Thu, 10 Dec 2015 20:00:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45068#comment-1123426 Talk about paid advertising!
Fess up Kevin McCarthy, how much were you paid by the Natural Gas Lobby to write this article?
Do you think the FACT that millions of manufacturing jobs were shipped over to China and other slave-labor countries, along with the CO2 emitting machinery, might, JUST MIGHT, be a major reason that US emissions have declined and China’s have risen?
This is a textbook example of lying through omission.
I think the FBI now uses that to charge suspected terrorists and their sympathizers.

Fracking chemicals are a waste disposal nightmare that nobody wants to acknowledge. Fracking reduces significant methane during the drilling and recovery processes that make the emissions from natural gas just as bad as coal. The truth is that all fossil fuels are bad, without exception. Our only intelligent recourse is to leave them all in the ground and switch to completely emissions-free energy generation, which can be done with modern technologies.

– The Keystone pipeline was to carry dirty sand oils from Canada, and not natural gas.
– The Obama administration’s efforts have been aimed primarily at cutting emissions from coal plants, and not gas. In fact, gas is recognized as one of the key components of achieving a cleaner energy portfolio.

Sad to see Reuters waste space on pieces like this.

How many of the global warming fraudsters and scammers flew to Paris on their private jets? Obama Christmas Tree…came from ALASKA? Obama big backers live 20000 sq ft homes and fly their private jets. Obama supports burning wood…the highest CO2 output source of power?

The Porter Ranch catastrophe is in Mr. McCarthy’s neighboring district in
California, not in his own congressional district. Apologies.

1. The “reduction” in carbon emissions he refers to only applies to the moment of consumption of the fuel. It doesn’t include the vast amount of gas leaked, or the huge volumes of gas intentionally flared during the production and transportation of the gas. Charlie’s neighboring congressional district is ground zero for an ongoing environmental catastrophe in which hundreds of thousands of tons of methane have already spewed across the countryside near Porter Ranch, California. He doesn’t mention this in his blog. And yet, hundreds of Mr. McCarthy’s fellow Californians have been relocated from their homes after complaints of nosebleeds and nausea. And there is no immediate end in sight. Officials estimate that specialists might be able to plug the leak in the next three to four months. The gas emitted so far has been compared to the emissions of 160,000 cars for a year. Some reduction.
2. Charlie’s claim that the oil and gas industry is the lone bright spot in the economy ignores the plummeting stock values of shale gas companies, the increasing number of institutions divesting of fossil fuel stocks, the steady fall in rig counts across the country, and the explosion of unemployment in the fossil fuel sector.
Five Pinocchios, Kevin. . . er, Charlie.
