Supporting Energy Means Investing in America’s Future

Late last month, the Progressive Policy Institute (PPI) released the fourth installment of its annual report outlining the top companies investing in America today. But despite their overall findings that we are still suffering from a significant lack of investment and business capital spending, there are those who are still “betting on America’s future,” especially […]

Don’t Buy the Environmental Hype Against Crude Oil Exports

Allies of our nation’s environmentalist movement are not about to let facts get in the way of swaying public opinion in their efforts to garner support for its overreaching agenda.  Case in point: a recent column by the Center for American Progress (CAP) attacking efforts to lift the ban on U.S. crude oil exports.

Just a few decades ago the conventional wisdom was that US imports would continue indefinitely, that we would be hopelessly at the mercy of OPEC and that “peak oil” would soon bring the end of the age of oil.
