Over the last several years this false narrative that business is inherently evil has steadily crept into the social conscious. It has become commonplace, even laudable among some camps, to criticize corporate America as the antithesis of the working class. Nowhere is this animosity on display more — nor more misplaced — than toward traditional energy producers.
My family has been in business in Oklahoma for more than 80 years. As oil and natural gas activity has increased lately, I’ve seen more business activity in the area. The economic turnaround has been wonderful for my company and has had a positive impact on the whole community.
The annual Oklahoma State University Energy Conference also included Tom McCoy of Cimarex Energy; Sheridan Swords of ONEOK; and Michael Mears of Magellan Midstream Partners.
The best way to reduce global greenhouse gases is for the U.S. to produce more of our domestic energy, not less. We have very cheap and abundant natural gas (thanks to fracking), and we should export it all over the world. The U.S. has reduced carbon emissions more than any other nation not because of regulations or green-energy subsidies but because of shale gas. Let's sell it to every corner of the globe, get rich and save the planet.
The consistency of the winning political candidates on key issues in red states the past several years, while perhaps predictable, is both clear and troubling to those who live in them.
As I continue to focus on my top priorities of strengthening education, better training our workforce, improving health outcomes, reducing our incarceration rates, fixing our budget, and getting Oklahomans better jobs, I am thrilled that I will have an ally in the White House who is trying to do many of the same things for all Americans.
In 2017, the Republican-controlled Congress recognizes the opportunity is quite possibly greater than it has ever been before. By working together to reform healthcare, energy policy, regulatory burdens, and America’s tax structure, I am confident that we can achieve our goals and put America back on the right path.
There were 44,100 employed in energy production in Oklahoma in October 2016, down 12.2 percent — around 6,100 jobs — compared to the same mont…
Plains & Eastern Clean Line, a 720-mile electric transmission infrastructure project, will be the first overhead high-voltage direct current project in the U.S. in more than 20 years.
This election should be about policies, not personalities, making Donald Trump the only choice to get our economy back on track and ensure a prosperous future for the United States.
The energy they produce is roughly the equivalent of 75 residential rooftop solar installations.
The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is an approximately 700-mile overhead, direct current transmission line that will move wind energy to utilities in the Southern states.
Oklahoma has more than 1,000 megawatts of wind capacity under construction, said Hannah Hunt, a senior analyst with the American Wind Energy Association.
I can't stop thinking about the Tulsa World editorial of Aug. 4 ("Oklahoma's big in wind energy, and it's blowing holes in the state budget"). My jaw is still on the floor.
Sen. Jim Inhofe and Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma both praised the decision.
This election season has created an unprecedented alliance between the environmental Left and the anti-free market movement. The result is a well-funded juggernaut adept at conducting coordinated and sophisticated assaults on American businesses while attempting to influence crucial elections. Their goals are nothing short of shuttering our American manufacturing industry, halting the production of affordable energy and placing a ruling clique of radicals in office.
Here’s a look at how Oklahoma members of Congress voted over the previous week.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. So there’s no better time to acknowledge where the federal government fall…
In a word, no. The effect of phosphorus on a plant’s metabolism and the amount needed by all plants is greatly misunderstood and misstated.
In the wake of recent terror attacks both domestic and abroad, it is crucial that we provide funding to our national security. The spending agreement passed fully funds our national defense and ensures our troops are paid and receive the equipment they need to get the job done, writes U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas.
While I could offer a long list of the things I wish had been a part of the omnibus funding bill, there is also a lot in it to be proud of and claimed as conservative victories.
