Fracking Bust? Shale Wells Across US Churning Out Less Oil Than Projected

Jason Hopkins | Energy Investigator The implementation of hydraulic fracturing has helped propel the U.S. into an energy superpower, but there are signs that the fracking boom might not be as productive as developers assumed.

Politicians must consider unintended consequences

Politicians must consider unintended consequences

    By Paul Driessen It’s become a recurring, frustrating pattern, as legislators and regulators ignore the immutable laws of unintended consequences, to drive political agendas or aid favored constituencies, while harming others. A good example is corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards on vehicles. Originally enacted in 1975 to offset the impacts of the […]
