Offshore Energy in New York? Forum Tonight to Discuss Merits of Port Ambrose Project

With natural gas prices in the Northeast at an all time high and temperatures at an all time low you would think that a plan to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) port off of Jones Beach would be met with much applause. A forum tonight on the future of offshore energy in New York City is sure to get tempers flaring, blood boiling and the discussion will certainly be heated.

Obama’s 2014 State of the Union Address has Climate Change on Frontburner

President Obama addressed the nation last night and discussed climate change as an opportunity for America going forward. It has been a while since the president spent as much time discussing climate change in a State of the Union address.

In his intro, the president made mention that autoworkers are producing the "most fuel efficient cars in the world", that America is weaning itself off of foreign oil and that for the first time in 20 years America is producing more oil at home than it imports.

He later devoted 10 paragraphs to climate change and climate change innovation!
