  • California denies most fracking permits ahead of 2024 ban

    California regulators haven't approved permits for the controversial oil and gas extraction process known as fracking since February, effectively phasing out the process ahead of Gov. Gavin Newsom's 2024 deadline to end it. The state's Geologic Energy Management Division, known as CalGEM, has rejected an unprecedented 109 fracking permits in 2021, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. That's the most denials the division has issued in a single year since California began permitting fracking in 2015. Fifty of the permits, mostly from Bakersfield-based Aera Energy, were denied based solely on climate change concerns.
  • ‘Gasland’ Director Josh Fox Triggered by Kyle Rittenhouse’s Face, Says Teen ‘Murdered My Brothers’

    Left-wing documentary director Josh Fox pleaded with Twitter users on Friday to stop showing Kyle Rittenhouse’s face because, in his view, the Illinois teenager “murdered my brothers.” Fox, who is the director of the debunked anti-fracking documentary Gasland and eventually downgraded to a contributor for The Young Turks, immediately saw his content policing backfire with a wave of pro-Rittenhouse memes in the replies. The filmmaker insisted that he “needed” everyone to start posting “warnings” in posts containing images of the teenager who is standing trial in Wisconsin. Fox is so triggered by the images of Rittenhouse that he is demanding...
  • History reveals the ridiculousness of 'climate change' hysteria

    For several decades, we've been harangued by left-wing harbingers of doom, screeching at 140 decibels that global warming — i.e., the gradual heating of Earth's surface, oceans, and atmosphere — is caused by human activity, primarily the burning of fossil fuels that pump carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. They lecture us about the long-term rise of the planet's temperature, caused by our shameful carbon footprints, which we selfishly use to drive our cars, air-condition our homes, and generally enjoy comfortable lives. "How dare you?" They want us to believe that the planet Earth, one...

    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Homeowners near 35th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road say there has been a mysterious rattle that is happening more consistently and frequently. "It was just a jolt at first and we'd feel it like 2 or 3 times out of the year," said Timothy Jackson. "As of yesterday, it was about 20 times every hour, just a steady shake." Timothy has videos of his windows rattling during one of the episodes. He said he built his home in 2000 and the shaking started about five years later--but it's never been this bad. "It rattles in the...

    CANONSBURG, PA. -- Thirty years ago, Jason Capps was a young man with ambition, but when he looked around this town near Pittsburgh, where he grew up, all he saw were opportunities slipping away. The coal mines where his father worked were dying; the glass, steel, and manufacturing industries were on their last legs. In 1987, when Capps graduated from high school, the unemployment rate was at a staggering 12%. "My ability to carve out a future here was limited at best, impossible at worst," he said. "So I left." Capps, 51, became a chef and traveled the country honing...
  • Gavin Newsom to Phase Out Fracking in 2024, End Oil Extraction in California by 2045

    California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) announced Friday that he would end new permits for hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) in 2024, and would ask state regulators to explore ways to end the extraction of oil entirely in the state by 2045. Newsom’s statement confirmed earlier reports about his decision to end fracking, which contradicted his claim last September that he could not end fracking in the state through executive action alone, and would need the legislature to pass a bill:

    New Mexico Democrat Representative Deb Haaland was confirmed as the next secretary of the Department of the Interior on Monday, making her the first Native American Cabinet secretary in the country’s history. Senators voted 51-40 to confirm Haaland, who was strongly supported by advocates for conservation and Native American issues. She will soon lead an agency critical to the Biden administration’s efforts to confront climate change. Haaland said the confirmation was another crucial step in increasing Native American “visibility.” Haaland will soon be leading a federal agency with wide-ranging responsibilities on public lands throughout the country. The Interior Department approves...

    Andrew Cuomo is currently fighting for his political life after becoming engulfed in a sexual harassment scandal. But this is not the first time the three-term Democratic governor has faced similar obstacles. Since taking office in 2011, Cuomo has frequently been mired in scandal in a state with a history of corruption. His administration’s mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and the snowballing sexual harassment allegations are only the latest in a long line.. Here are five other scandals that have threatened Cuomo’s grip on New York. 1. The Mario Cuomo Bridge.. When the rickety Tappan Zee Bridge needed replacement in...

    COSTA MESA (CBSLA) — The price for a gallon of regular gas has climbed as high as $4.05 in Orange County recently, which is why many drivers headed to Sam’s Club in Fountain Valley, where gas was going for $3.30 per gallon Monday — a full 75 cents cheaper than the most expensive stations. “Gas keeps going up,” Mandy Hall, a driver, said. “I don’t know how they can justify doing like 10 to 20 cents a day, every time I turn around.” According to the Auto Club of Southern California, gas prices in Los Angeles County have hit their...

"I spent my whole life learning this craft and this skill and it’s not as easy as somebody might think or people might think to just start all over at 45 years old," Jernigan, with Local 798, said. "I guess I could possibly get a job as a greeter at Walmart, I don’t know." President Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline...

    A new bill making its way through the New Mexico Statehouse would stop fracking permits from being issued in the state. Senate Bill 149 would enact a four year moratorium on new fracking permits. An industry group says that will lead to the loss of upwards of 2-billion dollars in revenue just in one year. The bill has passed the Senate Conservation Committee on a split 5-4 vote. Bernalillo County Democrats Antoinette Sedillo Lopez and Roybal Cabellero are co-sponsoring the bill.

    Since taking office in January, President Biden has issued an unprecedented number of Executive Orders aimed at undoing President Trump’s signature deregulatory agenda, namely issuing a suite of climate related executive orders including re-entering the Paris Climate Accord, cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline, freezing new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and directing the federal government to replace its nearly 600,000 vehicle fleet with electric vehicles (EVs). Citing climate change as an existential threat, Congressional Democrats have their own green agenda to push electric vehicles, introducing legislation to extend major tax credits for EVs along with credits and subsidies...

He vowed to block Haaland’s nomination if his needs were not addressed. Daines’ statement following his conversation with Haaland reads as follows: “After our conversation, I’m deeply concerned with the Congresswoman’s support on several radical issues that will hurt Montana, our way of life, our jobs and rural America, including her support for the Green New Deal and President Biden’s oil and gas moratorium, as well as her opposition to the Keystone...

    American Thinker ^ | 6 Nov, 2021 | A Massachusetts bureaucrat working directly for Gov. Charlie Baker said the quiet part out loud.
    For Biden, climate change is a chance to wield his executive power to your detriment. For “green businesses,” climate change is the way to redirect massive amounts of taxpayer money into their pockets. For John Kerry, climate change is a way to reemphasize just how special he is. And for you? Well, for you, climate change is about suffering. According to David Ismay, Under Secretary for Climate Change to Massachusett’s Governor Charlie Baker, the government needs to “break your will.” Now that Biden’s been in the White House for two-and-a-half weeks, it’s clear that the war against Nature’s natural climate...

    President Joe Biden signed three executive actions on Wednesday to tackle climate change, which he called an “existential threat” comparable to COVID-19. Biden, continuing a slew of executive actions in the opening days of his presidency, asserted: “Today is climate day at the White House, which means that today is jobs day at the White House.” It was a strategic choice of words, since critics of Biden’s agenda to reverse human-produced climate change say it would kill huge numbers of U.S. jobs.

    President Joe Biden is set to announce a wide-ranging moratorium on new oil and gas leasing on U.S. lands and waters, as his administration moves quickly to reverse Trump administration policies on energy and the environment and address climate change - but it will also lead to the loss of tens of thousands of jobs. Two people with knowledge of Biden´s plans outlined the proposed moratorium, which will be announced Wednesday. They asked not to be identified because the plan has not been made been public; some details remain in flux. The move follows a 60-day suspension of new drilling...
