One of the key areas where Britain can do its part is with wind power, and now new research claims the government should be refocusing its efforts on onshore wind farms. Read More >>

Natural Gas is Now Called ‘Freedom Gas,’ According to the US Department of Energy

Jingoistic nationalism and promoting fossil fuels go hand in hand for the Trump administration. But the Department of Energy took that connection to a new level on Tuesday with a press release touting natural gas as “freedom gas” full of – I feel stupid even typing this – “molecules of U.S. freedom.” Which I guess means we now definitively know the cost of freedom: According to the global market, it’s $2.64 per million BTUs as of Wednesday late morning.
