  • The death of Keystone XL would be a blow to workers and communities along the pipeline’s route

    Construction on the Keystone XL pipeline has helped keep Emily Lai’s small family restaurant alive during months of COVID-19 lockdowns. The 90′s Restaurant, on Main Street in Oyen, Alta., has stayed afloat by serving takeout to hundreds of tradespeople who temporarily moved to the area to work on the project. But now that the TC Energy Corp. pipeline has been halted, she said she and her husband are more anxious about the future of the Chinese and Western cuisine restaurant they have owned for nearly a decade. “My husband is feeling sad, too, and worried about the business,” Ms. Lai...
  • Buyer’s Remorse: New Mexico’s Leaders Say Biden Energy Bans Will Devastate State’s Economy

    Joe Biden wasted no time destroying tens of thousands of jobs his first day in office by canceling the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Biden also put a 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits on federal lands. New Mexico’s leaders are worried that Biden’s war on the energy business will devastate the state’s economy, where education, jobs and public programs depend on funding from the industry. Joe Biden (supposedly) won New Mexico with 54.29% of the vote vs 43.50% for Trump. “During his inauguration, President Biden spoke about bringing our nation together. Eliminating...
  • Isn't it great that the oil from Canada will now be moved by trains and trucks?

    Now that the Keystone XL pipeline is cancelled by President Joe Biden, the world is supposedly greener. Really? Fact is, it's the opposite. Instead of getting more environmentally friendly, the carbon footprint from that oil will be increased substantially because it will be shipped by truck and trains above ground, instead of through underground pipe. It is also much less safe and efficient: Shipping by trucks and trains means more accidents -- and an increased human cost. What sheer brilliance! I thought all of Biden’s decisions were going to be based on facts and science. I read the other day...

    The federal government’s 60-day suspension of new oil and gas leasing and drilling permits on public lands sent shockwaves through the industry in New Mexico and divided industry experts over potential impacts. “It’s very much putting politics above science,” said Ryan Flynn, president and CEO of the New Mexico Oil and Gas Association. Members of the oil and gas industry and economic experts are weighing the potential impact of the federal government’s 60-day suspension of new ail and gas leasing and drilling permits on public lands.

  • Biden’s Fossil-Fuel Freeze

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 22, 2021 | WSJ Editorial Board
    Any doubt that the Biden Administration plans to slowly regulate fossil fuels out of existence vanished this week. First came the Keystone XL pipeline kill, but perhaps more significant is the 60-day freeze on new leases on federal lands and bureaucratic permitting. The pause could soon become a long-term ban. Federal lands account for about 22% of U.S. oil production, 12% of natural gas and 40% of coal. When the Obama Administration slowed oil and gas permitting on federal land, drilling and exploration shifted to private land. The Biden Administration may shut that down too. Start with the 60-day suspension...

  • Kenney calls Biden’s Keystone XL decision a ‘gut punch,’ wants Trudeau to consider economic sanctions

    CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says his government is “deeply disturbed” by U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to kill the Keystone XL pipeline expansion project. Kenney said the move was a “gut punch for the Canadian and Alberta economies” and that the new U.S. administration should have consulted Canada before taking the decision. “...Let’s be clear about what happened today. The leader of our closet ally retroactively vetoed approval for a pipeline that already exists, and which is co-owned by a Canadian government, directly attacking by far the largest part of the Canada-U.S. trade relationship, which is...
  • Wyoming GOP Blasts Liz Cheney for 'Aligning Herself with Leftists'

    It seems Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has ticked off Republicans in her state. The at-large representative voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump following last week's riot at the Capitol. The FBI is only beginning its investigation of last week's riot, but the lack of findings didn't stop Liz Cheney from joining House Democrats to hold the president responsible for the violence. Following Cheney's vote to impeach the president, the Wyoming Republican Party said in a statement that never before has the state party seen "this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans." According to the party, "the anger...

    ...The GOP gains, which were particularly extensive in coal-producing regions, all but assure that Trump’s rigid brand of politics will persist in state capitals, becoming incubators for a new generation of politicians who reject compromise and bipartisanship.

    Shares in China’s three biggest telecoms companies fell as much as 5% in Hong Kong on Monday, the first trading session since the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) said it would delist the firms in a move China branded unwise and oppressive. By the close of trade, the shares had mostly recovered. The NYSE said on Thursday it would delist China Mobile Ltd, China Telecom Corp Ltd and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd following the U.S. government’s move in November to block investment in 31 firms it says are owned or controlled by China’s military. Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for...

    You may have noticed that the nation entered a political crisis after election day. However all that turns out, and whomever occupies the White House, a Pandora’s box of pressing problems and quandaries lie beyond this battle, and they will determine how we arrange daily life in this land, especially the question of what our towns and cities will look like, and how they’ll function, which has been the focus of this monthly column the past year.

    SANTA FE — New Mexico congresswoman Deb Haaland has been tapped as President-elect Joe Biden’s interior secretary, according to The Washington Post and other national news outlets. If confirmed, Haaland, 60, would make history as the nation’s first-ever Native American cabinet secretary and would lead an influential federal agency that oversees more than 500 million acres of public lands and tribal issues. Haaland, who is a Laguna Pueblo member and former San Felipe Pueblo tribal administrator, had been touted as a potential Cabinet pick by many fellow House members and Native American groups. As head of the Interior Department, Haaland...

    (Firewall) LONDON—Iran has circumvented U.S. sanctions and exported more oil to China and other countries in recent months, providing a lifeline for its struggling economy and undermining the Trump administration’s so-called maximum pressure campaign against Tehran. The scale of Iran’s petroleum sales is difficult to gauge, given their often covert nature. Several firms that monitor the global oil trade say shipments from Iran have roughly doubled from the low levels seen earlier this year, although estimates vary widely. On the high end, U.S.-based, which uses satellite imagery to follow deliveries, estimated Iranian crude oil exports hit 1.2 million barrels...

    It appears both Iran and Venezuela are ready and willing to test the outgoing Trump administration in a major gambit to skirt sanctions in a crude and fuel export scheme. The daily American military newspaper Stars & Stripes alongside Bloomberg reports this weekend that Iran “is sending its biggest fleet yet of tankers to Venezuela in defiance of U.S. sanctions to help the isolated nation weather a crippling fuel shortage,” based on sources familiar with their movements. “Some of the flotilla of about 10 Iranian vessels will also help export Venezuelan crude after discharging fuel, the people said, asking not...

    THE HAGUE - A group of environmental organizations backed by thousands of Dutch citizens launched a civil case Tuesday against the energy giant Shell, asking a court to order the multinational to commit to reining in its carbon emissions 45% by the year 2030. Lawyer Roger Cox told a panel of three judges at The Hague Court that Shell’s corporate policy is “at odds” with global climate goals. “The claimants therefore conclude that Royal Dutch Shell’s corporate policy is on collision course with global climate targets,” Cox said as he opened four days of hearings spread over the coming weeks....

    WASHINGTON - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. The challenge reflects just one of the obstacles that Biden will need to overcome as he seeks to usher in sweeping measures to combat climate change and transform the nation’s economy to net-zero emissions within three decades. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan....

    LANSING, MI -- Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is shutting down Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline, citing multiple violations by the company of the 1953 easement with the state, along with a duty to protect the Great Lakes. Enbridge now has until May 2021 to stop the flow of oil and natural gas through the Great Lakes, according to a statement from Whitmer. “Here in Michigan, the Great Lakes define our borders, but they also define who we are as people,” Whitmer said in a statement. “Enbridge has routinely refused to take action to protect our Great Lakes and the millions of Americans...
