Oil and gas holds key to cleaner environment


Mike Sommers promised straight talk to his audience in the heart of the nation’s energy exporting, refining and petrochemicals industry.

Remotely addressing the Houston Economics Club on Wednesday, Sommers, president and chief executive officer of the American Petroleum Institute, offered what he called straight talk about the world’s energy needs as debate swirls around just where that energy will come from.

“The world will need more energy, not less, over the next 30 years,” he stated. “The world’s population is expected to jump from 7.8 billion today to nearly 10 billion by 2050. Energy demand is projected to grow along with population.”

That means there will be a need for more crude and natural gas production in the years ahead, preferably more American production because the nation’s environmental and safety standards are the best in the world, he said.

Renewables are an important and growing part of the energy pie, Sommers continued, but that pie itself is growing as the population grows. “We need more energy across the board to enable both developed and developing economies to grow.”

API and its member companies in the oil and gas industry share global concerns about the climate, Sommers told his audience. But he stressed that, rather than being blamed for climate change, oil and gas can actually provide solutions.

“Climate change is a threat affecting economies worldwide. It’s not an issue that can or should be brushed aside. Yet the key to environmental progress in the world isn’t the Green New Deal. It’s not the Sunrise Movement,” he said. “If you need proof, think about 2010, the last time Congress considered climate legislation. Back then, lawmakers estimated that CO2 would drop by as much as 10 percent below 2007 levels in 2019 if their bill became law. Well, their bill didn’t. Instead, industry innovations like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling increased domestic supply and use of natural gas, and U.S. CO2 emissions declined nearly 15 percent – 50 percent more than what Congress predicted.”

Those innovations are continuing to help the industry reduce emissions, Sommers said, and API and its members continue advocating for ways to accelerate development of emissions-reducing technologies. As he was addressing the Houston Economics Club, Sommers’ organization was releasing a new template for individual oil and natural gas producers to utilize in consistently reporting and tracking greenhouse gas indicators.

API members are demonstrating for further innovation, new economy-wide market mechanisms and sensible policy proposals, he said.

It’s those innovations, many incubated in Texas, that made the US the global energy leader and will lead to the development of fuels that are not only low or net-zero carbon but reliable and affordable, Sommers said.

Oil and gas will continue to play a pivotal role in world energy needs, “whether it’s produced in the US or in other regions” creating jobs and prosperity for those regions rather than the US, he continued.

“The surest way to stall America’s economic recovery is to remove affordable energy from the picture – with more regulations, more restrictions, more taxes. Nothing less than our economy and national security are at stake if Washington handcuffs this industry like that,” Sommers said.

To build a better world for all, he concluded, “it’s imperative to allow energy development and environmental progress. Texas knows how to get us there. That’s the energy reality.”

    Just How Historic Was Western Canada’s Heat Wave? ‘Nothing Can Compare’

    It’s not hype or exaggeration to call it the most extreme in world weather records.

    “undreds of North Americans — and perhaps many more yet to be tallied — have died of heat-related illness over the past week after a mind-boggling heat wave struck the U.S. Pacific Northwest and far southwestern Canada. It’s virtually certain to be the deadliest weather event on record for the region. The unprecedented death toll is the result of a heat onslaught more intense by some measures than anything in global records, yet very much in line with the expected impacts of a human-warmed climate.

    The poster community of this horrific episode has to be Lytton, British Columbia. The town broke Canada’s long-standing all-time national high temperature of 45 C with a high of 46.6 C on June 27. The next day brought 47.9 C, and Tuesday a stunning 49.6 C.

    The intense heat flash dried the rugged, forested landscape, and wildfires mushroomed across the area on June 30. By evening, the entire town of Lytton was under mandatory evacuation orders, and Mayor Jan Polderman told CBC News that “the whole town is on fire.” Most homes in Lytton have been destroyed, according to provincial authorities.”

    Gulf Coast ready to develop carbon storage hub

    “The stage is set for a new carbon storage economy to emerge along the Gulf Coast, according to a study led by The University of Texas at Austin, with the region offering ample opportunities to capture and store carbon, and recent state and federal incentives giving an added push to get started.

    Carbon capture and storage, or CCS, is a technology that keeps CO2 out of the atmosphere by capturing emissions and storing them deep underground. It can help fight climate change by lowering industrial emissions now while renewable energy sources are being developed, said Tip Meckel, a senior research scientist at the Gulf Coast Carbon Center, a research group at the UT Bureau of Economic Geology that has been studying CCS for the past 20 years.

    “This is a viable way to reduce emissions in the near term,” Meckel said. “It’s feasible and has a reasonable economic structure that can support, retain and create jobs.”

    The study, which was published in Greenhouse Gases: Science and Technology, provides a high-level overview of policy incentives for CCS and how Texas and Louisiana’s high concentration of industry and unique offshore geology make the region a particularly good spot to build up a carbon storage economy.”

    More than a billion seashore animals may have cooked to death in B.C. heat wave, says UBC researcher

    “Shoreline temperatures above 50 C and low tides led to mass deaths of mussels, clams, sea stars”

    “Chris Harley walked onto Vancouver’s Kitsilano Beach in late June and smelled death.

    Carpeting the sea rocks were tens of thousands of mussels, clams, sea stars and snails, emitting a putrid odour that hung thick in the heat.

    “I was pretty stunned,” he said.

    Harley, a marine biologist at the University of British Columbia, now estimates that last week’s record-breaking heat wave in B.C. may have killed more than one billion seashore animals living along the Salish Sea coastline.

    The findings shine a light on the seismic effects of the heat wave, which has already been linked to hundreds of human deaths as the ecological toll continues to unravel.”

    As Arctic melt sets early July record, hard times lie ahead for ice: Studies

    -Arctic sea ice fell to its lowest extent on record for this time of year on July 5, even though the spring had so far been relatively cool and stormy — conditions that, in the past, would have protected the ice.

    -Three new studies help explain why. One found that increasing air temperatures and intrusion of warm water from the North Atlantic into the Barents and Kara Seas — a climate change-driven process known as Atlantification — are overpowering the ice’s ability to regrow in winter.

    -Another study found that sea ice in coastal areas may be thinning at up to twice the pace previously thought. In three coastal seas — Laptev, Kara, and Chukchi — the rate of coastal ice decline increased by 70%, 98%, and 110% respectively when compared to earlier models.

    -A third study found accelerated sea ice loss in the Wandel Sea, pointing to a possible assault by global warming on the Arctic’s Last Ice Area — a last bastion of multi-year sea ice which stretches from Greenland along the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Combined, this research shows Arctic ice may be in worse trouble than thought.

    Rail giants CN and CP warned their customers earlier this week that fires damaged major rail lines in the interior of the province, making them unsafe to use. That caused trains to back up along the network, idling thousands of rail cars and stranding their contents.

    Canary in the coal mine: Gaza, the Levant, and climate change

    The environmental degradation in Gaza should be an early warning for what is to come for the whole of the Levant.

    “Gaza’s limited freshwater resources are being pumped at an unsustainable rate, and 95 percent of its groundwater is deemed undrinkable due to contamination with wastewater and seawater. In addition, its agricultural land, constantly shrinking due to Israeli military encroachment, is increasingly insufficient to feed its rapidly growing population.

    Climate change is expected to compound these challenges by making precipitation even more erratic and unpredictable, further weakening the depleted and contaminated coastal aquifer, upon which life in the strip depends. It is also expected to increase temperature and water evaporation, reducing agricultural productivity and further worsening food insecurity.”

    “Lake Mead, a lifeline for 25 million people and millions of acres of farmland in California, Arizona, Nevada and Mexico, made history when it was engineered 85 years ago, capturing trillions of gallons of river water and ushering in the growth of the modern West.

    But after years of an unrelenting drought that has quickly accelerated amid record temperatures and lower snowpack melt, the lake is set to mark another, more dire turning point. Next month, the federal government expects to declare its first-ever shortage on the lake, triggering cuts to water delivered to Arizona, Nevada and Mexico on Jan. 1. If the lake, currently at 1,068 feet, drops 28 more feet by next year, the spigot of water to California will start to tighten in 2023.”

    Y’all struggles are for naught. Humans going bye bye.

    Plastic and chemicals toxic to plankton will accelerate ocean acidification which could devastate humanity in 25 years unless we stop the pollution

    Over the last 70 years since the 1950’s and the production of toxic forever chemicals and plastic, more than 50% of all marine life, including plants and animals under 1 mm in size, have been lost from the world’s oceans, and that decline continues at a rate of 1% year on year…Over the next 25 years, pH will continue to drop from pH8.04 to pH7.95, and carbonate-based life forms will simply dissolve. This will result with an estimated 80% to 90% loss of all remaining marine life when compared to the 1950’s. Becoming carbon neutral will not stop the pH from dropping to 7.95, and even in the unlikely event of the world achieving Net Zero by 2030 it will not stop the pH dropping to less than pH7.95. Coupled with the micro-plastic and toxic chemical stressors on marine life, the GOES team believe there will be a trophic cascade collapse of the entire marine ecosystem.

    ‘The Models Are Too Conservative’: Paleontologist Peter Ward on What Past Mass Extinctions Can Teach Us About Climate Change Today

    Peter Ward is one of the paleontologists responsible for overturning our understanding of most of the Earth’s mass extinctions, which, long thought to be caused by asteroid impacts, turned out to have been the result of climate change produced by greenhouse gases (all but the one that killed the dinosaurs, anyway).

    Climate change caused by volcanic eruptions may have played a role in massive die-offs for the dinosaurs – long before a comet or asteroid impact sealed their fate.

    Mercury linked to Deccan Traps volcanism, climate change and the end-Cretaceous mass extinction


    -Hg anomalies in sediments are a reliable proxy for Deccan volcanism.

    -Deccan eruptions caused long-term climate warming in the last 350 ky of the Cretaceous.

    -Long-term climate warming resulted in faunal decline but no extinctions.

    -Paroxysmal Deccan eruptions occurred during the last 25 ky of the Cretaceous.

    -Deccan-induced hyperthermal and ocean acidification led to the KPB mass extinction.

    This time it’s a clever rapacious ape digging up the carbon & burning it.

    Only significant difference is what takes volcanism tens to hundreds of thousands of years, the too clever ape has done in less than 300 years. Throw in unfathomable loads of plastic & assorted pollution in the mix.

    Up up up….up your ass you terrified & doomed little bed wetting homo.

    It’s funny how a malicious genocide promoting little cunt like you can accuse someone else of being nihilistic. lmao

    clog the white loser dreams of the destruction of all non ‘Aryans’. Dreams & promotes others to do the dirty work to bring about his ridiculous Nazi 2.0 alt energy powered White World. Destroy them all – rub out all signs of their existence & repopulate with pure Aryans…..Yawn heard it all before – clogs kampf. Pathetic envious losers – all of your nazi closet homosexual bum buddies. You guys are the ultimate in cancel culture. Cancel their existence.

    You’re so fucking dumb – this is from the link you posted – “Lazy humans bought 80 million cars powered by fossil fuels last year; an army of idiots celebrating the death machine”

    Exactly! Normal cancer monkey behaviour that will never change….which is why the humans are going bye bye.

    BTW, climate change is just one of a number of self inflicted existential threats. It’s the one that gets almost all the press. If you understood what we’ve done to the oceans & the threat that poses, you probably couldn’t get out of bed. We’d have to send Steve Bannon over to cheer you up with 4th turning ‘prophecy’ narratives & stories of his plans to destroy the state from within.

    Y’all know the whole deal is meaningless. That’s why you try so so hard. Your entire white supremacist dreams are just your desperate attempt to make it all mean something & you running out of time. Same as the progressive dreamers & the Jesus cult that spawned them & the Muzzi cult & the thousands & thousands of cults since time immemorial. You need it to mean something & that something must include you being special & necessary. It’s all a fiction little man. You won’t be remembered & nor will the human species. POOF! and we’re gone.

    Captured carbon can’t be stored, despite the best efforts of fossil-fuel giants

    Chevron’s multibillion-dollar Gorgon carbon capture and storage process has been a dismal failure — and it’s the easy version.

    “While carbon capture and storage is a scam that has already taken billions of taxpayer dollars and is now taking hundreds of millions of dollars more, the bigger problem is that the idea of a relatively straightforward transition to net zero is based on CCS working. And it doesn’t.

    A new analysis by West Australian journalist and former oil and gas engineer Peter Milne has exposed just how poorly Chevron’s Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island off the WA coast has performed at its intended goal of sequestering millions of tonnes of CO2 in underground storage.

    Gorgon is the world’s flagship CCS project, after the CCS component of the $7.5 billion Kemper power plant in Mississippi was shut after years of failure and delays in 2017. And it has been a massive failure.”

    ‘Airpocalypse’ hits Siberian city as heatwave sparks forest fires

    Monitoring suggests toxic smoke in Yakutsk is one of world’s worst ever air pollution events

    ‘Everything is on fire’: Siberia hit by unprecedented burning

    “heatwave in one of the world’s coldest regions has sparked forest fires and threatened the Siberian city of Yakutsk with an “airpocalypse” of thick toxic smoke, atmospheric monitoring services have reported.

    High levels of particulate matter and possibly also chemicals including ozone, benzene and hydrogen cyanide are thought likely to make this one of the world’s worst ever air pollution events.

    Local authorities have warned the 320,000 residents to stay indoors to avoid choking fumes from the blazes, which are on course to break last year’s record.”

    break last year’s record–break last year’s record–break last year’s record–break last year’s record–break last year’s record–break last year’s record…….

    British Columbia can be written off, no wonder our TalmudTurk is in such a state of despair, this time, the oven is coming to him:

    BC, give it to the Chinese. There is nothing “great” about the anglo-run West, no matter how Anglos holohoaxers and negro-infesting claim it is:

    “Interview with the Jolly Heretic: “Why the West is so Brilliant” (April 2021)“

    I love the despair TalmudTurk is sowing, it undermines the fabric of the stinking, dying west. These people can’t run a society, nihilists are simply not up to task, they can’t carry their own weight. Chosen People my foot. Hooligans, parvenues, who had their day, who will simply collapse and will be redeemed of the weight of their impossible dreams. They are going to bite dust. They have been weighed and found wanting.

    Climate, Not Conflict. Madagascar’s Famine is the First in Modern History to be Solely Caused by Global Warming

    “eatwaves, wildfires, floods. If there’s still any doubt that the summer of 2021 is a turning point for a global awakening over the looming climate crisis, you can add one more plague of biblical proportions to the list: famine.

    The southern part of the island nation of Madagascar, off the east coast of Africa, is experiencing its worst drought in four decades, with the World Food Program (WFP) warning recently that 1.14 million people are food-insecure and 400,000 people are headed for famine. Hunger is already driving people to eat raw cactus, wild leaves and locusts, a food source of last resort. The WFP, which is on the ground helping with food distribution, describes scenes of unimaginable suffering, with families bartering everything they have—even cooking pots and spoons—for the paltry tomatoes, scrawny chickens and few bags of rice still available in the markets. “The next planting season is less than two months away and the forecast for food production is bleak,” writes WFP spokesperson Shelley Thakral in a dispatch from the most affected area. “The land is covered by sand; there is no water and little chance of rain.”

    The WFP warns that the number of locals facing phase 5 catastrophic food insecurity—development speak for famine—could double by October. And the group has the responsible party squarely in their sight. “This is not because of war or conflict, this is because of climate change,” says WFP Executive Director David Beasley.”

    In the west we have subhuman citizens consumers that are so morbidly obese that mega stores jam packed with dirt cheap, high calorie toxic franken food that the stores provide golf carts for these tubby freaks of industrial civilization to buy more. They literally can’t shop without them.

    We should air drop a few hundred of these fat bastards into Madagascar as food aid.

    See? we care.

    These super fat people are another consequence of late stage societal decline.

    These corporate food giants are no different than drug cartels.

    I hope to see video footage of their final moments – swinging on the gallows.

    Most authority today are corrupt beyond belief. Criminals
