Natural Gas - Go Fly a Kite

It appears that despite T. Boone's $60 million and yet another media blitz, spending more millions, by Natural Gas Producers via the ANGA, natural gas has once again failed to get a place at the table during this week's Senate hearing on the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act.”

Apparently, ANGA Chairman David Trice was encouraged by the early look of the bill, specifically that Sen. Boxer made positive comments about natural gas when she introduced the bill.

I'm sorry, but we have been hearing postive comments for the last year. i think it's time to wake up and play some hard ball - D.C. style.

Are you in?

Here comes some bipartisan effort, still no mention of onshore drilling. The compromise is looking to be more favorable to drilling off shore.

I'm ready for some more of the $10 and $12 gas. Checks were very nice.

Here's the ANGA website's form letter to send to representatives regarding H.R. 2454. (Sorry, I tried using that hyperlink feature, still learning.)

I'm for playing D.C. hard ball. Got my cleats, bat and mit. I'm "in" if I can find the level playing field.

Natural gas appears to be gathering help from some surprising supporters:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Renewables to Overtake Energy Incumbents Within Decade

...Kennedy also urged the renewable-energy industry to make natural gas companies their friends. While many natural-gas companies still see themselves as more aligned with oil and coal than with renewables, some — such as Chesapeake Energy and T. Boone Pickens’ company, Mesa Power — have begun to realize they are environmentalists, Kennedy said.

He acknowledged the environmental impacts of fracking natural-gas wells, but called natural gas a “natural ally” for renewable energy because it’s the cleanest of the fossil fuels and it’s needed to balance out variable sources of power, such as solar and wind, until a better storage solution is developed. According to Kennedy, overturning “insane” rules in all 50 states that require utilities to dispatch coal plants before natural gas plants — which now cause gas-fired power plants to sit idle 62 percent of the time while coal plants are working 99 percent of the time — would reduce national carbon emissions by 25 percent without having to build a single new plant.
