Why does Boston Buy Natural Gas from Russia?

My latest op-ed appeared in American Greatness while I was on vacation, and I missed it, here is a quote and the link. A photo of an LNG tanker carrying Russian natural gas arriving in Boston Harbor 4 years ago can be seen here. “Europe is vulnerable and needs our natural gas; prices are absurdly high andContinue reading “Why does Boston Buy Natural Gas from Russia?”

Replacing the World’s Fossil Fuels

By Andy May U.S. progressives are convinced that fossil fuels must be replaced with renewables by 2050. The IEA even has a plan to do it. How will this work? Unlike progressives we value observational data over ideology, so let’s examine the data. According to ExxonMobil’s 2021 Outlook for Energy the world consumed 89.4 BBOEContinue reading “Replacing the World’s Fossil Fuels”

The Economic Cost of Eliminating Fossil Fuels

By Andy May The debate on how much impact humanity has on climate change continues. As nearly everyone knows by now, there is no observational evidence that humans have a significant impact on climate, so the debate is mostly over which future climate projection is likely. It also isn’t clear that the changes we mightContinue reading “The Economic Cost of Eliminating Fossil Fuels”

What’s below the Greenland Ice?

By Andy May An interesting PNAS article discusses the deepest portion of the Camp Century Greenland Ice core. It is not paywalled. The researchers, led by Andrew Christ (Dept. of Geology, University of Vermont) found evidence of an ice-free vegetated environment at the base of the Camp Century ice core roughly one million years ago.Continue reading “What’s below the Greenland Ice?”

Is “Climate Change” science or pseudoscience?

I have a new op-ed in the Washington Examiner today that questions whether “climate change,” as commonly defined today, is a scientific concept. The op-ed is a very brief summary of a longer post on the topic here. The longer post contains all the references and links to supporting material, including a link to KarlContinue reading “Is “Climate Change” science or pseudoscience?”

Climate Feedback Fact Checks CO2 Coalition

By Andy May The Climate Feedback website critiques my CO2Coalition article “Attributing global warming to humans.” Their factcheck is here. Like most “fact checks” these days it is a thinly disguised opinion piece. The statement that they claim is incorrect is: “There is no evidence, other than models, that human CO2 emissions drive climate changeContinue reading “Climate Feedback Fact Checks CO2 Coalition”

America’s Huge Natural Gas Reserves

By Andy May Greg Wrightstone, the Managing Director of the CO2 Coalition, has a new blog post describing the sadly underdeveloped super-giant natural gas fields along the U.S. East Coast. The combination of the Marcellus and Utica Shale reservoirs have more recoverable gas than any other gas field in the world, except for South Pars/NorthContinue reading “America’s Huge Natural Gas Reserves”

The SEC climate change proposal is not grounded in science, Author’s Cut

By Andy May This is the full uncut version of the op-ed I wrote for the Washington Examiner, here. On March 22, 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released a new rule for public comment (File Number S7-10-22) that would require public companies to report the climate-related impact of their businesses. Since it hasContinue reading “The SEC climate change proposal is not grounded in science, Author’s Cut”

The New SEC Climate Change Rule

By Andy May On March 22, 2022 the SEC released a new rule for public comment that would require public companies to report the climate-related impact of their businesses. Since it has been well established in multiple IPCC reports that the human impact on climate has never been observed, only modeled, this seems unnecessary. TheContinue reading “The New SEC Climate Change Rule”
