From Mark Perry over at Carpe Diem:
As another example of surging production and ongoing productivity gains for new wells, I learned from an energy industry insider last night in Houston that a prolific, new shale gas well in the Utica Shale region has delivered an initial production volume of 30 million cubic of natural gas feet per day, almost four times the 8 million cubic feet per day new-well average in the Marcellus.
*******************************Breitbart is reporting:
Obama ordered all federal agencies to begin factoring “climate resilience” into all of their international development programs and investments.This should prevent / slow US federal money being sent overseas while US agencies work on those "climate resilience" factors. Some good news for US taxpayers.
Also, all those CO2 emissions being spewed out over the Mideast with ObamaWar -- do those CO2 emissions count against the US or against the Mideast? Enquiring minds want to know. My hunch is that there will be more CO2 spewed out over the Mideast during this decades-long ObamaWar than anything the Bakken oil producers produce.
By the way, is everyone in Europe and Asia sitting out this new war in the Mideast? I see about five Mideastern countries flying sorties (Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc) to support the ObamaWar but I didn't see France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Albania, or Monaco mentioned. I assume the UK is involved.
And from the Obama administration we got the first civilian body count after 24 hours of aerial bombardment: 0.
I can't make this stuff up.
