CEG Looks Back: The Alaska Pipeline Cuts Through the Last Frontier | Story ID: 25334 | Construction Equipment Guide   3 comments

This is actually an older article (it referenced Gov. Murkowski, who left office in 2006), but it does a great job of describing the TAPS.

CEG Looks Back: The Alaska Pipeline Cuts Through the Last Frontier | Story ID: 25334 | Construction Equipment Guide.

Because of continuing decline in throughput, the State of Alaska is now headed toward a possible shutdown of state government, which affects every aspect of Alaskan lives because that’s how the oil revenue reaches the people. Having weathered the ongoing Recession of 2008, if our legislature and government cannot come to a compromise in the next few weeks, we will be facing mass layoffs of about 40% of the state’s working population.

Or not.

I’m starting a new series about oil in Alaska and life in a resource state.

Seattle: Port needs new permit – Alaska Journal of Commerce – May Issue 2 2015 – Anchorage, AK   Leave a comment

Lovely! The environmentalists have convinced another state to further damage the Alaskan economy, and what are our options to do anything about it? None!

This is exactly what is wrong with this country.

Alaskans are not freaking Eskimos in a snow globe. We need jobs. We have a good history, far better than most other states, in environmental protection and when we actually manage to meet the federal standards, the environmentalists convince Washington State to deny Shell use of their port so that they miss the drilling season.

Can we please secede NOW? I’d like to do that before we’re back to being the poorest state in the union and unable to take care of ourselves.

Alaska must chart own course to full-diameter gas line   Leave a comment

Alaska must chart own course to full-diameter gas line – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Community Perspectives.

I helped elect Bill Walker to Governor of Alaska because I liked his stance on a gas line. I still do. I like that he’s not looking at our current temporary financial situation and making a short-term temporary decision. He’s looking ahead and preparing to build the pipeline regardless of current conditions.

He’s acting like a CEO instead of a politician and that’s what Alaska has needed for a very long time.
