Support the Keystone Pipeline

The builders of the Keystone XL pipeline have waited over six years for an answer from the Obama Administration regarding whether or not a pipeline from Canada to the United States is in the “national interest.” And now, in the wake of President Obama’s veto of this basic infrastructure project, that answer is clear. The…

Products and Power

Products and Power educates Americans on the importance of domestic energy production and the hundreds and hundreds of products that are made with American power. Our goal is to not only create awareness, but also mobilize Americans against regulations that fail to properly balance the costs and the benefits, thereby stifling innovation and economic growth.

End the Wind PTC

The Wind Production Tax Credit (PTC) is a 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour tax subsidy for wind turbines during the first ten years of operation. The PTC has expired and been extended EIGHT times. Previously, wind farms had to be placed in service and generating electricity in order to claim the credit. But during the last “one year…

Ozone Rule

Ozone levels have dramatically fallen since the 1970s. Now it is time to reassess whether the costs of further reductions justify the projected benefits. Under the current Clean Air Act, EPA has determined that it is necessary to push more stringent requirements every five years. This is no longer realistic given current technology and the…

The Story of Electricity

Most of us don’t give a second thought to where our electricity comes from. The truth is that the power grid is the biggest engineering achievement of the 20th century – and one of the most indispensable machines on Earth. Reliable power provides the foundation for modern life. Yet EPA’s onerous regulations are threatening to undermine…

In January of 2008, President Obama famously said,  “So if somebody wants to build a coal-fired plant they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them…” And now, he is delivering on that promise. EPA’s new climate rule is threatening to shut down coal-fired power plants on a massive scale. The proposed rule would shut…

Renewable Fuel Standard

The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requires renewable fuels to be blended into gasoline in a manner that increases the costs of foods and doesn’t necessarily reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Every year, EPA releases new and increasingly more untenable requirements for refiners. But in 2014, EPA refused to release the volume requirements for the year. After more…

Divestment Truth

Energy is the lifeblood of modern society, but there is a new movement to halt our use of energy and the products of modern life as well—the fossil-fuel divestment movement. These activists seek to pressure individuals and institutional investors to “divest” of stocks, bonds, and other investments in natural gas, oil, and coal companies. This…
