Scotland Just Banned Fracking Forever

Claire Bernish / The Anti-Media Scotland — In one fell swoop, Scotland banned fracking — permanently — when parliament narrowly voted in favor of cementing the country’s temporary moratorium on the controversial practice. With the original intention of conducting full health

The Obama administration issued a final rule Thursday to sharply cut methane emissions from U. oil and gas production, a key part of a push by President Barack Obama to reduce methane emissions by nearly half over the next decade.

Global Warming’s Terrifying New Chemistry – BillMoyers.com

Global warming is, in the end, not about the noisy political battles here on the planet’s surface. It actually happens in constant, silent interactions in the atmosphere, where the molecular structure of certain gases traps heat that would otherwise radiate back out to space. If you get the chemistry wrong, it doesn’t matter how many landmark climate agreements you sign or how many speeches you give. And it appears the United States may have gotten the chemistry wrong. Really wrong. Continue…
