Press Is Largely Ignoring Recent Awesome Fossil Fuel-Related News


Since Donald Trump’s election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks — and Donald Trump has had nothing to do with any of it.

Two developments they consider really bad (meaning good for the rest of us) far outweigh the single item they’re celebrating. First, in Wyoming, just two days after the election, their “fracking is bad” Exhibit A in Pavillion, Wyoming was completely discredited. Second, in Texas this week, a huge oil discovery was reported — so big and unprecedented that the only commenter at the Associated Press’s coverage of the story at the Washington Post wrote: “This … should be front-page news given its economic and geopolitical impact” — but of course it’s not.

Neither good-for-us, bad-for-them story is getting adequate press attention.

  1. Ya see that blue area in w Texas? I’m smack in the middle of it. Granted as Fur pointed out it’s only 3 years worth of oil we consume(it all adds up) but at current rates of consumption, it’s over 600,000!!! years of natural gas. Oh man, I hope these oil guys start spending that cash on art glass.

    Energy costs to set up manufacturing in the US will offset off shore’s advantage in cheap labor. Now that Trump is lowering the corporate tax rate, there should be no stopping the ramping up.

    Strap in boys & girls, with a savvy businessman at the helm comined with American innovation and an ocean of cheap energy, wow!

  2. MM:
    And we have a wild-ass self made billionaire at the helm who eats dynasties for lunch and snacks on societal barnacles like the media in his downtime.
    He’s fired up the kettle, gonna show those Washingtonians how to cook.

  3. Good news for Texas and the nation. And jobs for those laid off from the Permian Basin oil patch. If I lived in the area I would be setting up trailer parking places ASAP. Housing will be scarce for the workers in that sparsely populated area.

  4. One cool thing about the MSM ignoring the story: The price of energy will drop significantly (with all the resulting economic benefits) and DJT will get the credit!

  5. Obama is going to take credit for gasoline at $1.90 when he took office and keeping stable price when he leaves office at $1.90 and the DOW from 7900 to 19100+. MOST successful will be written on record.

  6. Like TexasGunOwner said, it’s not on federal land. Texas has virtually no federal lands. When Texas agreed to join the US, it kept possession of all state lands instead of having to cede them to the US. Even Big Bend National Park was a gift from the citizens of Texas to the US Park Service. Although there are four national forests in east Texas, the land was purchased by the federal government. Virtually all other land in Texas is privately owned.
