“Star Search”, Oil & Gas Country Panic, and Solutions to Veteran Suicide

A western town that’s a Montana movie set

More states are reaching for the stars!

As film production has drastically slowed in Hollywood where Covid-19 restrictions have been long-lasting, states see an opening. They’re looking for ways to attract movies and TV– and the dollars and jobs they bring.

Sunday on Full Measure, I’m off to Montana where they’re reaping the benefits of a new law that gives tax incentive for producers who make bring their film and television productions.

But the idea isn’t without controversy.

Also, Scott Thuman is off to New Mexico and Texas where those in the oil and gas industry are nearing panic over the Biden administration’s new energy policies.

The Biden administration says its refocus, putting a priority on climate change solutions and renewable energy, is positive for all Americans.

We’ll have that report.

And Lisa Fletcher takes us to learn about a fascinating and unusual program that military vets say helps them deal with the mental and physical stress of life after service.

  1. England has been helping veterans with PTSD in many ways. One interesting avenue is hiring them for archeology projects. Gives them a new perspective on history, engages them in an adventure and everyone on the job can share their personal journeys.

  2. Houston’s Conoco-Phillips is laying off 500 employees from its Energy Corridor location. All 4,500 personnel were told to clean out their desks and to take ALL of their personal stuff home. Then, the 500 to be laid off will be notified at home and the remaining will return to work next week. (Or, the other way around.)

    Seems kind of cold hearted, to me.

    1. Yes, it is hard-hearted, but it is the only sensible thing to do. That move will minimize or prevent a lot of sabotage and destruction.
      Had I had to do something like that again, that is what I would do.

  3. Anyone with an interest, need, job connected to anything with fossil fuels and voted for Biden should celebrate as he has kept 0bama’s and his promise to put them out of business and raise taxes on what remains.
    I saw were some Democrat Congressional Critter from Texas started complaining about Biden’s Executive Order, that person is none too bright. Then there are the people who put that Critter and Biden in office. Those people are really hurting.

    Biden said he was going to turn out the lights on America and he will do what 0bama could not do.

  4. Sharyl – as one of your fervent supporters, I can not allow you to go down the dark path of allowing the show to use the excuse that the people you interviewed lied, so you get a free pass. “80% of US electricity comes from fossil fuels” was spoken twice by the oil industry people you interviewed. It is a blatant lie! Seriously, You need to have friends who “will tell you” when you stink something up.
    (PS: after reading J. K. Galbraith’s “The New Industrial State” back around 1968, I “awoke” to media con games while doing my studies at MIT. Including a minor concentration in Economics, while majoring in Electrical Engineering. Really, I’m on your side.)
    About 63% of this electricity generation was from fossil fuels—coal, natural gas, petroleum, and other gases. About 20% was from nuclear energy, and about 18% was from renewable energy sources. Nov 2, 2020”
