Our nation’s energy future is very important to me. From signing petitions, calling and writing letters, I do everything I can to reach out to our elected officials to encourage them to do what is best for this country and support our fossil fuels. With over forty years of industry experience, I know that every company I have worked for has done everything they can to please the landowners and take care of any concerns immediately. Not to mention the fact that our footprint for natural gas is much smaller than the renewables that are being pushed on us, such…

Supporting the energy sector is important to the nation’s security. We cannot shut down sectors of important energy sources based on misinformation from anti-energy activists that are not concerned with our nation’s prosperity. We must support all forms of energy and improve our technologies so that we can get the great American people back to work and secure our energy future.

It is no wonder that Governor Wolf just couldn’t let the severance tax on gas die off. We all thought it was done and buried last autumn thanks to some very active Energy Citizens and tough lawmakers. But I guess “spending cuts” are dirty words in Harrisburg, which leaves no alternative but to raise taxes no matter the consequences. Even if they include losing a terrific industry that provides good jobs and pays enormous impact fees directly to our communities. We have to do everything possible to keep the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania. It is not like we have…

The oil and gas pipeline system in Connecticut and all of the New England area absolutely must be updated. We need to begin work on it yesterday! This is a much smarter way to transport the oil and gas that is desperately needed in our part of the country. After working in the nuclear power industry for a big portion of my life, I have learned a lot about this topic. Fossil fuels provide enormous benefits for people, more than most people are even aware of. Therefore, there are many other benefits to updating the pipeline infrastructure in New England.…

For America to have a strong, secure energy future, we must have an “all of the above” approach. The fact is that renewable energies are not advanced enough to be standalone sources for energy. They require a backup source of power, which is where gas and oil come in. There are also many unintended consequences that would result from jumping strictly to renewable power for our nation. That’s why we must incorporate common sense energy policies that will give us a strong, secure energy infrastructure and economy. We have vast amounts of gas and oil under our feet and we…

How short-sighted can a state government be? After losing so many major industries through the decades, Pennsylvania finally has a ray of sunshine in an abundance of natural gas. But alas, our governor must always find new forms of revenue – instead of making cuts – and is bringing back the dreaded severance tax to the budget table. Governor Wolf claims to need money and he needs it now. But this is a dangerous move. The gas industry is skittish right now due to the market downturn. One whiff of a severance tax and they will pack up and go…

The United States currently faces many big issues – energy is chief among them. We need a holistic approach encompassing the development of all fossil fuels to move our country forward and reduce dependency on foreign countries. This includes fracking, clean coal production, offshore oil drilling and more.  These extraction methods have provided our citizens with jobs for many years and that will continue as long as we utilize our natural resources to the fullest. The counter arguments to fossil fuel production, such as concerns for the environment, are inaccurate.  Living in an area with America's most pristine beaches, I…

Our country's future depends on traditional energy sources.  After spending many years in the coal and gas industries it became clear to me that we have an abundance of fossil fuels. That is obviously still the case today. If we want to become self-sufficient for our energy needs, we must tap into that large supply. It should be the U.S. that sells their resources to other countries – not the other way around. Consider the success stories coming from the small towns that profited from the oil boon and for the job seekers who have become gainfully employed there. If…

American energy independence should be a top priority for our nation. We have been drilling for oil and gas for many years and it has been highly beneficial for our country. Through advanced technologies, we have been able to discover even more abundant resources. Unfortunately, agencies have overstepped their bounds and are imposing unnecessary regulations on our energy industry. This is holding us back from our true potential of American-made energy production and becoming energy independent. With the help of Energy Citizens, I can easily contact my elected officials and encourage them to implement common sense energy policies that will…
