Of Course, Study Shows Methane Emissions Were Overestimated By ‘Climate’ Fear-mongers

Published

on

According to the Denver Post, Oil and gas industry leaders in Colorado are pointing to a new study that revealed that methane emissions from drilling have not increased by large amounts despite the uptick in energy production across America over the past decade.

These oil and gas interests point to a study from the University of Colorado Boulder which also determined that previous studies overestimated the amount of pollution coming from oil and gas activity.

According to the UC Boulder paper, “The assumption of a time‐constant relationship between methane and ethane emissions has resulted in major overestimation of an oil and gas emissions trend in some previous studies.”

A news release dealing with this topic claimed that previous studies failed to observe that ethane-to-methane ratios are increasing, which causes major overestimations of oil and gas emissions trends.

The paper’s main author Xin Lan said in the release, “What this means is if you want to track methane, you have to measure methane.”

A post published by Energy in Depth highlighted how natural gas production was up 51% and oil production rose 80% from 1990 to 2017 without emissions increasing as much. This demonstrates that recent extraction ventures have not polluted as much as those in the past.

This study has unfortunately come at a time when Colorado just passed one of its most anti-growth economic policies, SB 181. Under SB 181, local municipalities and Colorado’s Oil & Gas Commission will have more flexibility in micro-managing the oil and gas industry. Communities can now invent ways to impede drilling and other mineral extraction methods from taking place within their jurisdictions.

Since Jared Polis was elected in 2018 and Democrats gained control of all chambers of the Colorado State government, Colorado has shifted leftward in both governance and policy. For the past decade, Colorado has embraced policies like gun control, which has continued with Jared Polis’ recent signing of “red flag” gun confiscation orders.

If these political trends continue, Colorado can expect more infringements on economic and personal freedoms.

MORE BLOOD: 19 Killed in Mexican Gun Fight Connected to El Chapo’s Cartel

Published

on

Last weekend, a gun fight between Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s former drug cartel and a rival cartel resulted in the deaths of 19 people in northern Mexico.

The encounter started late on April 3, 2020 when cartel members connected to El Chapo’s Sinaloa cartel were caught in a gun fight with drug traffickers from the Juarez cartel and other criminal syndicates in the state of Chihuahua, according to Mexican police reports.

The following day, authorities discovered 18 bodies at the scene of the violent exchange in the town of Madera. Another man that was wounded died shortly in a hospital, according to law enforcement sources.

Mexican soldiers were sent to the area and discovered several weapons, which included two grenades.

Back in January 2019, a Brooklyn federal judge sentenced El Chapo to life in prison.

Since El Chapo’s sentence, there has been an enormous power vacuum in Mexico’s Drug War, as numerous cartels vie for power after El Chapo left the picture.

Mexico’s government has proven to be incompetent on the matter of public security so cartels will continue to have their way in the country.

For that reason, the U.S. should proactively seal off its border and restrict migration from Mexico.

Not taking action on border security will only leave America susceptible to Mexico’s problems, which will only spillover to the U.S. if the borders remain porous.
