The biggest source of U.S. carbon emissions is?

Coal extracted from public lands.

Taxpayer-owned coal is the single biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, according to a new report from the Center for American Progress and The Wilderness Society.

The report, released Thursday, finds that emissions from coal, oil and gas that is mined or drilled on federal lands and waters could account for 24 percent of all energy-related greenhouse gas emissions in 2012. The report also concludes that more than 10 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions result from the combustion of coal extracted on public lands in Wyoming and Montana, primarily in the Powder River Basin (PRB), where 40 percent of all U.S. coal is produced.

The report was released as coal companies operating on federal lands in the PRB are coming under increasing scrutiny for allegedly evading royalties by selling coal to their own subsidiary companies at depressed prices.

All of the advocacy groups that tout, "responsible energy development" need to start demanding that those that profit off extracting resources from public lands should be at least paying their proper share for the priviledge.

Frack this

The inmates are running the asylum

The Interior Department's long-awaited “fracking rule” designates FracFocus, an industry-funded data repository, as the mechanism for public disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing at oil and gas drilling sites on federal and Indian lands. That public disclosure is required within 30 days of completing fracturing operations.

I'd personally like to know beforehand what cancer causing agents my friendly neighborhood oil company is planning on pumping through my water table.
