@Sen_JoeManchin Other countries like India and EU charge coal producers or generators tax or CO2 price on pollution; in US plan is to pay generators not to pollute. Who pays is political question. WV has made it clear it doesn’t want to pay any cost either pollution or clean up1/
Instead @Sen_JoeManchin helps WV spread costs of coal pollution to states who bear the related ginormous losses in human life, health, severe weather. That’s a pork barrel we can no longer afford as a nation.

@CostaSamaras @emilygrubert @RichardMeyerDC “Freeze off” defined: well shutdowns Eg ala Texas DCP Midstream LP and Targa Resources Corp. shutdown so posting about frozen wind turbine when 1 million b/d of Permian crude shut in on top of frozen nat gas facilities is idiotic 1/
@ira_joseph @RichardMeyerDC My career fantasy: I wake up one morning and not see misinformation from oil and gas industry in my twitter feed and 100% renewables advocates are accurately explaining role hydro flexing currently plays in successful deployments 2/

@tedcruz issued statement against Paris climate agreement. Since it is time to reinvigorate knowledge here is link to NBER paper on jobs and environment. Paper considers how in new economy workers essentially reallocated to new opportunities but...1/ nber.org/papers/w26093
But Hafstead NBER research also shows stickiness of job loss in select communities most affected by energy transition in short run. this is one area where stimulus should target speeding opportunity (as opposed to losing out on new economy development ) 2/ nber.org/papers/w26093
Put another way, when @APIenergy says they will block Biden plan for EV charging stations at the same time ExxonMobil lays off 14,000 employees, America experiences DOUBLE job losses. Oil sector jobs lost because other countries are transitioning climate policy (thread)

Hi Energy Twitter: today’s lesson is on the gas oil separation plant (GOSP). (Thread) All Saudi crude oil production goes from the well head (oil production well) through a gathering system and is then processed in the GOSP. Learn this acronym. It’s going to be important
The stream of crude oil that comes out of wells in Saudi Arabia is mixed with gaseous hydrocarbons like methane, butane and propane, liquid condensates. crude oil, water, and contaminants such as salts, sulfur, and sand. It cannot be refined into gasoline as is. ((Thread)
GOSP units take the raw crude oil mix and remove impurities and separate the mix into distinct commodities mainly crude oil but also condensates, NGLs, and natural gas. (Thread)
