Fracking expert Mark Zoback: We need good science, good engineering, good regulations and good enforcement 23.4.2014 LA Times: Commentary
The Stanford geophysicist and expert on hydraulic fracturing sees the problems and the potential for California.

"Fracking" — now there's a word that just begs for a bumper sticker. Short for "hydraulic fracturing" — the process of breaking open rock with high-pressure liquids to get at otherwise untappable oil and natural gas — fracking conjures up a welcome energy boom for some, ecological disaster for others. Mark Zoback — Stanford geophysicist since 1984, member of the National Academy of Engineering's Deepwater Horizon investigation committee, personal "decarbonizer," fracking expert — sees the problems and the potential for California. Zoback's bumper sticker might read something like this: "Fracking — Do it, but do it right."

The president's predicament is just the latest example of how climate change monomania has become a problem for environmentalists — and the country.

On Good Friday, President Obama made a bad call.

The administration insists the decision to punt has nothing to do with politics. Pretty much everyone else thinks otherwise.

Hayden Station coal power plant to get emissions reduction upgrades 21.4.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Hayden Station coal-fired power plant is getting $160 million worth of emissions-reducing upgrades as part of a larger $1 billion push by Xcel Energy. Colorado’s Clean Air Clean Jobs Act , which was signed into law in 2010, led to a plan to reduce emissions from coal power plants, including retiring plants, converting some to natural gas and installing emissions controls on others. Hayden Station has two units — Hayden 1 generates 184 megawatts and Hayden 2 generates 262 megawatts — and each will have selective catalytic reduction equipment from Hitachi Power Systems of America installed. A megawatt-hour can provide electricity for about 750 houses for an hour “It’s equipment that through a chemical process converts nitrogen oxide into nitrogen and water,” Hayden project manager John Pierce said. “It’s kind of simple, but the results are fantastic.” Pierce said the power plant already has low NOx burners, scrubbers for certain gases and baghouses, which are like large vacuum cleaners for the air to ...
