Norwegian Oil Fund Ready To Divest From Oil & Gas

Norway, which is still a monarchy, has two sovereign wealth funds. The Government Pension Fund Global, also known as the Oil Fund, was established in 1990 to invest the profits from the country’s petroleum sales.

Why Republican Policy Sucks

Hello, my name is Zach Shahan, and I have a problem. I’m a political nut. More seriously, I’ll admit that I’m strongly drawn to politics, follow policy & politics closely (some might say obsessively), and have sometimes struggled with how much time and emotion I invest into all of that.

How Does The Republican Party Claim The “Christian” Label? (Total Hypocrisy)

It’s rather crazy to me — the Republican Party is supposedly the “Christian” party and has the long-standing support of Bible-reading Christians in rural areas and Evangelicals.

Governor Fallin would have us all believe that it’s been a really tough year for the oil industry. In fact, it’s been so bad […]

An Update on US Methane Emissions from Fracking

Originally published by gws on SkepticalScience.com A relatively large number of research publications has appeared in the peer-reviewed literature since we last updated our readers on fracking and methane, CH4, emissions. We cannot discuss them all here. However, in summary, it can be concluded from these papers that EPA is very likely underestimating fossil fuel […]

How To Hack A US Presidential Election

I get a lot of press releases emailed my way. One flew in this week regarding how easy/difficult it is to hack a presidential election. I didn’t spend time on it since it didn’t seem like a story for us and this election seems like one where election-day cheating is least likely to matter, but […]
