Johnson: Go All In on Energy Plan

Congressman: Fossil fuels included in ‘Vision 2020’ plan

July 23, 2013

ST. CLAIRSVILLE — Comparing the effort to achieve energy independence to President John F. Kennedy’s call to land on the moon in the 1960s, U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson believes the new mission is vital....

Even though I completely agree with Johnson, all effort must to made to bring all Obama Administration scandals and crimes to conclusion first. Holder and all involved in the IRS Scandal must be jailed and very possible Obama impeached. All of this before any legislation of any type. After the criminals are gone then work on bringing America back.

Nice talk, but the CHINESE have that plan and they EXECUTE.

One new COAL power plant per month.

One new NUKE per year.

More wind and solar than any country in the world.

One new gas plant per 6 months.

THAT is the kind of leadership this country needs, ALL of the above.

We have two green companies going BANKRUPT every month!!!!

To Obummer, it means ALL of his grean companies that he has INVESTED IN (that go POOF!)!

CHINA: SCORE!

USA: FAIL!

LOL- More slop from duwhop. I do biz with the coal and gas industry while collecting royalties. I have said over and over and over, I am for business, I merely want it done safely, responsibly and not at the cost of the general public. duwhop is surely in his own little world. The NR website word, where he lives under many monikers and posts 24/7/365.............there's a wonderwhy! whoa!

There are people who are for things and then against them. At one time the Sierra Club raging against coal demanded that we extract natural gas becuase its a clean burning energy source. But now we actually have an abundance of gas so we have to be against that, even though at its worst its still incredibly better than coal emissions. That is just part of the left wing heritage. That its the opposite from time to time must be forgiven, being for things is nowhere near being against stuff, thats cool and makes you feel morally superior. So new opposite positions for Obamites are we are for war in the Middle East, for energy and military affairs with ME despots and the whole thing about Bush and oil, well forget that we WANT to be oil dependent at all costs to humanity, no matter if, as in Libya we must kill 35,000 people with US airpower to give control of the oil fields to BP. Being a liberal means being able to suspend reality and speak out of both sides of your mouth.

I noted that the price of gasoline recently increased more than had been expected. The blame has been placed on an increase in global demand and sluggish production. To date, shale and tar sand oil seems to be having little impact on the global oil market. The price of fuel in the U.S. is a reflection of the global maker. The cost of extracting and refining non-conventional oil more is a contributing factor. We seem destined to have high energy costs dragging on the economy for the foreseeable future.

Wienerdawg totally off base as usual.

Forbes:

““U.S. oil output is surging so fast that the U.S. could soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the world’s biggest producer. Driven by high prices and new drilling methods, U.S. production of crude and other liquid hydrocarbons is on track to rise 7 percent this year to an average of 10.9 million barrels per day. This will be the fourth straight year of crude increases and the biggest single-year gain since 1951. The boom has surprised even the experts.

“Five years ago, if I or anyone had predicted today’s production growth, people would have thought we were crazy,” says Jim Burkhard, head of oil markets research at IHS CERA, an energy consulting firm.”

The major factor driving domestic production higher is a newfound ability to squeeze oil out of rock once thought too difficult and expensive to tap. Drillers have learned to drill horizontally into long, thin seams of SHALE and other rock that holds oil, instead of searching for rare underground pools of hydrocarbons that have accumulated over millions of years.”

There are additional explanations for our leap forward.

• The long-lasting high prices being paid for oil has provided drilling companies with the money and the motivation to develop the new techniques for getting oil out of the ground.

• Drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, which had been dramatically curtailed after the BPoil disaster in 2010, has begun to grow, reflecting some large oil finds there.

• The natural gas glut has caused natural gas drilling to be curtailed, making drilling equipment and workers available to shift to going after the oil.

Wienerdawg: FAIL!

"Driven by high prices and new drilling methods,...," dah.

Thank you for making my point for me, dah. Yes, it is possible to develop marginal (unconventional) reserves of oil (or pre-oil) if you are willing to pay a premium for the end product. The cost of finding, developing and refining unconventional oil must be added to the price of the product. Our economy was founded on CHEAP AND ABUNDANT high quality oil. Whatever is paid for energy ultimately is subtracted from other forms of buying. Expensive energy means expensive food, basic services, health care, education, entertainment,

The Great Recession did not happen because we ran out of oil. It happened, in large part, because the price of oil spiked. Every major recession over the past several decades is tied, in part, to rises in the price of oil.

Wheezerdawg, First law of Economic, boy, First law.

Supply--Demand curve. #1 If DEMAND exceeds supply, prices RISE.

#2 When Supply surpasses Demand, prices drop.

We are still in scenario number #1.

DUH!

dah, you really do need to keep up with your meds. Peak oil production in the U.S. occurred in 1970 - not 1955. You seem to have a problem with getting things mixed up. In 1956, M.K. Hubbert predicted the peak of U.S. oil production around 1970. Total conventional oil production actually did peak in 1970. If you do just a little background research you will find that peak has not been exceeded. You will also find that that the EROI of oil in the 1970s was far greater than today, which means, on net, we were were enjoying far greater return on oil in 1970 than we are in 2013. When factoring in "net loss" we are nowhere near being as much a producer of energy as we were over thirty years ago.

dah, you are embarrassing yourself.
