Here’s why Russia is delivering loads of natural gas to Massachusetts

Massachusetts anti-fossil fuel policies is one of the primary reasons why the state has relied on natural gas imports from a Russian oil company the Department of State sanctioned during the Obama-era.

Officials in Massachusetts and neighboring New Hampshire blocked financing in 2016 for the $3 billion Access Northeast Pipeline, which would have helped the state weather an energy crunch this winter. The state’s decision to rely principally on green energy hiked gas prices and forced it turn to Russian oil imports.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey concluded in 2016 that “no new pipelines are needed” and that we “can maintain electric reliability through 2030 even without additional new natural gas pipelines.” Healey also joined New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s investigation into ExxonMobil’s alleged willingness to hide internal documents about climate change.

Environmentalist groups like and Greenpeace are organizing online campaigns to oppose every new coal, oil, and natural-gas project in the country. Greenpeace, for one, has etched out the position that the only good fossil fuels are the ones that are left in the ground. The Sierra Club, meanwhile, claims the U.S. is ready for 100 percent green energy.

New England’s energy grid strained to keep up with skyrocketing energy demand in December and January when arctic temperatures hammered the region. Boston received a shipment of natural gas from an export terminal owned by Novatek — one of the Russian energy giants sanctioned in 2014. Russian oil and gas shipments, however, aren’t covered by U.S. sanctions.

Massachusetts’ lack of pipeline infrastructure forced the state to rely on coal production during the cold snap, which caused energy prices to pitch upward. President Donald Trump appointed a top regulator in 2017 who suggested in January that the electric grid could have operated without coal so long as customers were willing to pay higher energy prices.

“We wouldn’t have seen any widespread outages absent coal,” Kevin McIntyre, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Agency, told senators during a Jan. 24 meeting assessing how the grid responded to a recent spate of snowstorms. Coal production did help reduce energy prices.  [snip]

Coal accounted for more than 40 percent of the electricity makeup delivered this winter on the PJM Interconnection, the regional transmission organization responsible for delivering energy to more than 50 million people, said the group’s president and CEO, Andrew Ott.

“We could not have served customers without the coal-fired resources; that’s the reality,” he said.

PJM burned so much coal, in part, because the price of natural gas skyrocketed during the cold snap, Ott said. Winter weather pounded Massachusetts and New York again in late February, dropping several inches of rain in the state. The cold snap will likely continue for the time being as spring nears. [snip]

These Eco-nuts are on the Left because they have never been right.


Ponder this

The reporting of news has to be understood as propaganda for commodities, and events by images.

Rep. Peter Welch admits government’s ‘well-intentioned flop’ on ethanol

Vermont Democratic Congressman Peter Welch has been an advocate of doing away with ethanol subsidies for a while. As the program’s serious failures mount, Welch is gaining some allies, and there is actually a possibility that the subsidies will be phased out. Here’s what he recently had to say on the subject:

We’ve now had more than a decade of experience with [ethanol subsidies], and it had the best of intentions. But it has turned out to be a well-intended flop.

It actually doesn’t cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, it expands them. It’s had a significant impact on overplanting in fragile areas of the corn belt. It has had significant impacts on small engines. And it’s also had a significant impact on feed prices … and there is a lot of evidence it has increased the cost of food. (Source: Red State)

What a refreshing admission from a politician. Our meddling actually made matters worse in pretty much every respect, and we should just stop.

Now, if only Welch and his colleagues would come to similar revelations regarding their actions in, say, healthcare reform, where government intervention (very well intentioned) has led to higher insurance costs, longer wait times to access care and an opioid crisis. Or in regard to their “help” with access to higher education, which has caused the price of a college degree to explode while the value of those degrees, in many cases, has declined. Or government’s approach to welfare, which has destroyed the black family in America and is now corroding other demographic groups.

The list is almost endless. But ethanol policy is a start.

Rob Roper is president of the Ethan Allen Institute.

Getting any change in this policy will require a massive movement in the electorate. The farm lobby will raise money, donate to non farm candidates to insure votes outside the farm belt keeping ethanol in the gas tanks of American cars. It has nothing to do with cleaner air, better fuel economy or less damage to machinery. It has only to do with money in someone’s pocket.

Look for Archer Daniels Midland to lead and other members of the consortia to follow such as Union Pacific RR ( Big AG) and Monsanto. Then we shall find out who in the MSM own large blocks of Big AG and blow off the downside of ethanol.

Elizabeth Warren Refuses to Take a DNA Test to Prove Her Native American Heritage

Yikes. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren claims to have Native American heritage, but refuses to take a DNA test to prove once and for all her heritage.

The Massachusetts Senator was interviewed on today;s episode of NBC’s Meet the Press. Host Chuck Todd pointed out a recent Massachusetts’ newspaper editorial that called upon the supposed Native American to take a $99 DNA test sample. [snip]

“My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma,” Warren said. “My daddy first saw my mother when they were both teenagers. He fell in love with this tall, quiet girl who played the piano. Head over heels. But his family was bitterly opposed to their relationship because she was part Native American. They eventually eloped.”

“Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said. “But what I did a couple of weeks ago is I went to talk to the leaders of the native tribes across the country.”

“And I talked about the fact that President Trump can’t seem to hear my name without trying to throw a racial slur into it. Can’t seem to make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without trying to make something else out of it,” she added.

President Trump has often called the left-leaning stateswoman “Pocahontas” because she has claimed she is Native American, yet has offered no proof aside from family legend.
