2018/09/10: The Trump administration, taking its third major step this year to roll back federal efforts to fight climate change, is preparing to make it significantly easier for energy companies to release methane into the atmosphere.
OPEC is already suggesting the US oil boom will end this year. Wishful thinking.
The United States is banking on decades of abundant natural gas to power its economic resurgence. That may be wishful thinking.
Recent developments are beginning to undermine the supremacy of the world's long-running energy information duopoly and its perennially opti...

Cheaper gas means more gas guzzled and more carbon emitted, right? Reality is more nuanced.
2014-11-25: On Thanksgiving Day, what used to be the world’s most powerful oil cartel will gather in Vienna to decide how much oil to produce. Righ
Hooray, oil is suddenly much cheaper than it used to be. That's great news, right?Not so fast. For certain it's not good news for those counting on a continued rise in US oil production from the "shale miracle". Many drillers were challenged to operate profitably when oil was above $70 per barrel. Very few will remain solvent wit

Oil prices are at five-year lows thanks to OPEC's hands-off attitude. But that alone probably won't be enough to strangle the surge in U.S. oil
Suddenly in June, oil prices started dropping, reaching levels unseen since 2010. What is going on? Why does the price of oil matter to financial advisors? What might these fluctuations mean to the price and supply of oil for the rest of the decade? Isn't oil just another commodity?

Le guerre, di solito, vengono descritte come fatte per la libertà, la democrazia, l'indipendenza o cose del genere ma - quasi sempre - ci sono di mezzo ben altre cose. Fin dal tempo della battaglia di Stalingrado, dove i tedeschi persero la guerra nel tentativo di conquistare i campi petroliferi del Caucaso, le guerre si
Think back to early 2004. Oil cost around $40 per barrel1-on the high side compared to the previous few decades but not much out of the ordinary. Gasoline still cost under $2.00 a gallon for most of the country. The evening news was more concerned with wardrobe gaffes by Janet Jackson (too little, at the Super Bowl) and President Bush (too much, on the USS Abraham Lincoln) than with energy prices.
It's already bad enough that we create a lot of carbon pollution by doing useful things like heating our homes and moving people and goods around, do we also have to burn gigantic amounts of fossil fuels for no reason?
