The Environmentalist War On Science

February 1, 2017  •  Daily Caller

The EPA just threw out five years of fracking safety research to appease green extremists. Although early drafts found no evidence that fracking has had a "widespread, systemic" impact on drinking water, the final report claims that there isn't "enough information to make a broad conclusion."

How absurd. An honest look at the science should have environmentalists waving the white flag in their fight against fracking. It's time for both the EPA and green crusaders to quit this political charade and recognize that fracking technology has boosted the economy, helped wean America off imported oil and gas, and dramatically reduced CO2 emissions.

Shining a Light on Midnight Regulations

January 30, 2017  •  National Center for Public Policy Research

Much has been made about the unprecedented number of Obama Administration "midnight regulations," those rules issued between Election Day and the Trump inauguration.

The Obama administration issued an estimated $157 billion worth of midnight regulations, according to the American Action Forum, headed by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former Director of the Congressional Budget Office.And that doesn't include dictates that circumvented the formal rule-making process.

Fixing FDA is literally a matter of life and death

January 19, 2017  •  The HIll

In a December 60 Minutes interview, House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke of the need for regulatory reform.

"There are a lot of regulations that are really just crushing jobs. Look at the coal miners in the Rust Belt that are getting out of work...the loggers and the timber workers and the paper mills on the West Coast...the ranchers or farmers in the Midwest...We're talking about smarter regulations that actually help us grow jobs in this country."

Leaving no doubt about the centrality of regulatory reform on the congressional to-do list, Speaker Ryan also said, "So we think regulatory relief is very, very important. And that's something we're going to work on on day one."

He wasn't kidding.

The EPA Shows Again That It's an Affront to Common Sense

November 23, 2016  •  National Review Online

For decades, in administrations Democratic and Republican alike, the Environmental Protection Agency has been a paragon of waste, fraud, and abuse, a corrupt taxpayer-funded Evil Empire. "Science" there is just a tool to be manipulated in order to advance radical anti-technology and anti-industry agendas, even if it means distorting the intent of statutes and affronting common sense.

New EPA methane rules spell disaster for American economy

November 8, 2016  •  The Hill

More than a dozen states have now filed lawsuits against the Environmental Protection Agency over its new regulations on methane emissions.

Court rulings against the Obama administration will likely start rolling in soon. The regulations are based on dubious data and driven more by politics than science. They would devastate the economy and the environment.

We simply can't let a federal power play bring the American energy revolution to a halt.

Last year, the EPA reported that, since 2005, net methane emissions from natural gas infrastructure had fallen 38 percent, while total methane emissions from natural gas had dropped 11 percent.
