Texas and North Dakota - the two largest U.S. shale-producing states - described it as a boon for their producers. Their appreciation was in contrast to a more combative style in recent years, when shale states seemed to relish openly bashing the group.

“I have had weekly nightmares of rats in my mattress, couch and throughout my house. I can’t fall asleep after I wake up from these nightmares,” Marcil said. Read more...

We've written several articles that discuss all the things that are made from fossil fuels. Petroleum products are responsible for many of the things that make our lives easier, and even healthier. We don't deny for a minute that renewable, "clean" sources of energy shouldn't be developed, but we don't want to forget what it would really mean if we "keep it in the ground" when it comes to oil and gas.

Aaaaaand... he's back again. Our little sage grouse makes headlines once more, and it seems to be a nice compromise between environmentalists and drillers. New guidelines have been issued that will help determine what restrictions are imposed on activities to protect the sage grouse.
