CFACT’s Southern Regional Director Graham Beduze was on New Orleans radio station WGSO to speak on the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) regulatory hearing on drilling and to encourage all to attend. Specifically, the hearing by BOEM was in regards to further regulating seismic activity for energy exploration in the Gulf of Mexico. Little did the greens know that CFACT was on the move and with an army of energy workers across Louisiana was going to crash their regulatory party.
“There has been a lot of talk about unifying after the election; I couldn’t think of a better topic to unify on in Louisiana than standing up for energy jobs,” said Beduze.
Louisiana student Joe Shamp delivered fantastic testimony to Bureau officials advocating for the lifting of drilling regulations. If you missed it, you can read that story here.
Farther up north, CFACT’s National Director of Collegians, Adam Houser, was interviewed by the Statesman, a conservative student newspaper on the University of Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia campus. Houser discussed CFACT’s general mission of free market environmentalism with the Statesman, and outlined students’ fight for sounds science.
When asked about global climate policy, Houser responded: “[There are] millions of people living around the world who don’t have access to those things we take for granted every single day.” He went on to further explain that we should really be caring about the millions without food or electricity, not trying to destroy economies for science that has been proven to be flawed.
