In the Pipeline: 7/11/13

It is sad that the Administration has been reduced to hiding behind Senator Boxer’s skirts. Sad and repulsive. Environment and Public Works Committee (7/9/13) reports: “U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), top Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW), today was joined by fellow EPW Republicans in sending a letter to Chairman Barbara Boxer (R-Calif.) asking her to reconsider her decision to exclude government witnesses in the upcoming hearing Climate Change: It’s Happening Now. ‘The American people should not be kept in the dark regarding the scope of the actions this Administration is taking under the guise of controlling our climate – actions that have the potential to negatively impact employment, job creation, and our national debt.’”

Margaret, Anna, Bryan, Zac, and Luke are true warriors. Politico (7/11/13) reports: “Louisiana Sen. David Vitter declared victory this week in his battle with the Environmental Protection Agency, and in return removed a major obstacle for Gina McCarthy’s quest to head the agency. What did he get in return? Quite a lot. Vitter didn’t score across-the-board wins on all his requests for changes in the agency’s behavior, but he negotiated smaller wins that could have long-term implications for how it manages lawsuits, releases data and gauges the economic impact of regulations.”

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. North East Windmills (7/10/13) reports: “Nordex, one of the major wind turbine manufacturers in the world, is going to close its manufacturing plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas and return production to Germany. ‘The plant, lured to Arkansas with millions of dollars in state incentives, will cease production after it fills current orders. When Nordex officials and the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce announced plans to build the $100 million facility in the Craighead Technology Park in 2008, they said the wind turbine manufacturer would employ at least 700 workers with average wages of $17 an hour.’”

At least she flat out admits that these massive wind farms in England are in no way economical without “very high subsidies.”

Beating up on Josh is just getting too easy. The Center for Industrial Progress(7/9/13) reports: “In this episode of Power Hour, Alex Epstein talks with Thomas Pyle, President of the Institute for Energy Research, about Gasland 2, the new anti-fracking documentary by Josh Fox. Thomas has been debating Fox in the past few weeks.”

We fight for Jimmy Rose. For the little girl holding the sign up at the parade in Lovington, New Mexico. For the struggling business owner in Colorado. For everyone who depends on affordable, reliable energy to make a living or just make a life.
