Clinton camp admits that carbon tax would disproportionately harm the poor

According to a document released by WikiLeaks, on January 20, 2015 some of Hillary Clinton’s energy advisors wrote a memo to Sec. Clinton considering the possibilities of a carbon tax. In the memo, however, Clinton’s advisors explain how a carbon tax would disproportionately harm the poor. The advisors write:
It is important to note that any policy that increases energy costs – including the recently announced EPA regulations on power plants and methane emissions -- will...

WIRED reporter gushes over Paris agreement, but misses key facts

Wired science reporter Nick Stockton recently wrote an article praising John Kerry for his leadership on the Paris climate agreement. Stockton begins his article with a rather dramatic take on the Secretary of State’s role:
The Secretary of State is the frontal lobe of US foreign policy—managing the country’s diplomatic nervous system and its relationships with every other nation in the world. The vast majority of that work is slow and subtle: chipping away at a humanitarian crisis...

Fuel Economy Mandate Met with Congressional Criticism

At what point do federal regulations become too expensive to justify? The Energy and Commerce Committee dug into this question during a joint Subcommittee hearing on Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. Turns out, CAFE standards contribute significantly to the rising sticker prices for new cars and unjustifiably hurt Americans. CAFE standards should be repealed or rapidly sunset . Promulgated in response to the energy crisis of the 1970’s, CAFE standards were initially...

Obama's Fuel Economy Mandate Threatens the American Dream of Mobility

WASHINGTON – Today the American Energy Alliance released a new video highlighting the consequences of the Obama administration’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. This mandate requires that America's fleet of new cars and trucks get on average 54 miles per gallon by 2025—if EPA's assumptions are correct. AEA’s video, which also features an interview with Congressman Mike Kelly, tells the story of Nelcy Grande, whose ability to buy a car allowed her to start and...

What Congress is doing about EPA's heavy-handed methane regulations

Last week, the House Science Committee Environment Subcommittee held a hearing regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s new methane regulations. The hearing highlighted the dangers of these regulations and the Administration’s continuing attacks on domestic natural gas and oil production. The EPA finalized new source performance standards for methane emissions earlier this spring. Unsurprisingly, the rule has a hefty price tag. EPA pegged the cost at $530 million in 2025 (using...

The Obama Administration's Political Attack on the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,170 mile pipeline project currently under construction in the northern plains. The pipeline, spanning four states, would transport oil from North Dakota, through South Dakota and Iowa, onto its terminus in Patoka, Illinois. However, what should be a standard, albeit significant, infrastructure project, has come into the national limelight as a hot button debate over energy transportation. Announced in 2014, the DAP was intended to be a safe alternative to...

Labor Takes a Hit Under Obama's Anti-Coal Policies

In 2008, President Obama famously said “...if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them…” With Labor Day earlier this week, it’s a reminder of how President Obama’s anti-energy policies have affected employment. The Daily Caller reports that since President Obama came into office, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs with the coal mining sector having lost nearly 11,000 jobs in 2015 alone. In addition, The Daily Caller also...

Paris Climate Pact Remains Non-Binding, Meaningless

President Obama will likely "join" the Paris Climate Agreement during his upcoming trip to China. What does this mean? In reality, not much. That’s because the administration knew that a binding climate treaty would need to be voted on in the Senate. Instead, they worked hard to create a non-binding agreement, which they argue would not need to be ratified by the Senate (despite President Obama's recent attempt  to portray the agreement as a treaty). However, non-binding agreements by...
