… 

There was a ludicrous anti-gas protest at Southpointe Business Park the other day. Thank the Warren Buffet family and other funders of the Tides Foundation.

Hey, it’s Thanksgiving break, woo hoo! Time for brainwashed college kids to break the law and claim they’re doing their civic duty by shutting down traffic in front of “evil” companies that are part of the Marcellus industry. A lawless mob of perhaps two dozen mal-educated young people along with some old hippies (most of whom were from out-of-state, i.e. paid agitators) set up roadblocks and other elaborate structures in front of the Southpointe business park in Washington County, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh.

Leadership Wyoming Group Does “Natural Gas Day”

… 

Leadership Wyoming, a program offered by the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce, included a “Natural Gas Day” this year focused on what it does for the area.

“Natural Gas Day” for the Leadership Wyoming team was punctuated by tours to three active sites in nearby Susquehanna County and presentations by leaders in the natural gas industry. Group members donned hardhats and overalls to get a closeup look at a drilling rig and heard a firsthand account from a UGI official, just a day after a million dollar grant was awarded to the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce to facilitate the company in bringing natural gas service to Tunkhannock.

Plastic, Brought to You by Natural Gas

Most people use plastic products every day, but what they may not know is that natural gas plays a huge role in its manufacturing.

There is now another reason natural gas is so important in our everyday lives, plastic. Many of us use plastic products every day and never think about where they come from or how they are manufactured.  The Marcellus and Utica Shales that are producing our affordable natural gas also produce a natural gas liquid called ethane.

Can the DRBC Freely Roam the Basin Regulating and Forbidding?

Can the DRBC freely roam the Delaware River basin regulating and forbidding anything it wants that involves the use of water? That is the question at court.

Yesterday, oral arguments resumed at the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in the matter of the Wayne Land and Minerals Group’s lawsuit against the DRBC’s theft of property rights from upper basin landowners. The audio of those oral arguments can be heard here.

I say “resumed” because the arguments began two weeks ago and had to be stopped when DRBC Attorney Kenneth Warren fainted. He did so at the point when the three judge panel began questioning him hard on whether the DRBC thought it could regulate any land use involving water. He nearly fainted a second time yesterday at precisely the same point in the arguments, having to take a break and resume arguments sitting down.

It isn’t just us saying it; Penn State University has also noticed greenhouse gases are declining as natural gas production is increasing significantly.

Earlier this month I wrote a piece here noting the EPA data shows greenhouse gases are dropping in the Marcellus and Utica regions even as natural gas production grows. Now, Penn State University, my alma mater, says the same thing.

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about frac sand, the shell cracker, NGL storage hub and much more last week.

The Shale Gas News has grown to THREE stations! We are now broadcasting with YesFM. YesFM will be airing the full 60 minute version of the program on Sunday mornings. YesFM broadcasts primarily in Sullivan and Bradford counties, with some ancillary coverage in neighboring counties and even over the border into New York.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as guests, we had David Blackman an independent energy analyst/consultant based in Mansfield, TX and regular Forbes contributor and Tammy Geanangel a 31 year member of and graduate of the apprentice of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 66 in Pittsburgh.

As the Delaware Riverkeeper Does Politics, Where’s the IRS?

… 

The Delaware Riverkeeper is doing politics today, as it does a unique form of grass-roots lobbying for a fracking ban. Where is the IRS when we need them?

THE Delaware Riverkeeper is a radical environmental group operating as the self-appointed “caretaker” of the entire Delaware River Basin. It’s run by Maya van Rossum and gets its funding from a variety of foundations, mainly the William Penn Foundation. Riverkeeper’s cause célèbre is a complete, and permanent, ban on fracking in the Delaware River Basin. They’d actually like a permanent ban throughout Pennsylvania (and every other state in the Union), but they’ll take a ban in the River Basin as a first step.

China? Give Me A Break! It’s the U.S. That’s Leading in Reducing CO2.

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

The press has a bad case of the China Syndrome, believing the hype about that country suddenly leading in reducing CO2, when it’s the U.S. that’s doing it.

When the U.S. announced last June that it would pull out of the Paris Agreement, China—the world’s largest emitter of carbon dioxide—declared it would pick up the mantle and lead the world in the fight against climate change.

Whether India (the other leading CO2 emitter) talked China into this brazen move hoping to get in on the action, or it was just some sort of global prank, the gambit paid off big time. Almost immediately, headlines around the world heralded China and India as the new global leaders in the fight against climate change.

“It didn’t take long for China to fill America’s shoes on climate change,” declared TIME magazine. National Geographic reported “China and India are massively overachieving” in their efforts to fight climate change. Turning up the rhetoric a notch, the Telegraph of India warned “Renegade US to owe lives to India, China.”

And on November 12, The New York Times reported that China “appears quite content to move from co-leadership [with the U.S.] to sole leadership,” on climate change. It was all hype.

US Natural Gas Saves Germany from Its Own Decarbonization Experiment

Imported natural gas from the United States proves to be more economical for the citizens of Germany than its own Chancellor’s decarbonization experiments.

I find it amusing that the close ties the U.S. has had with Germany for many decades, and the historic role Ronald Reagan played in denouncing the Berlin Wall which eventually led to the demise of the Soviet Union, has been completely erased by our withdrawal from the Paris Environmental Accords and our President’s rejection of the climate change theories. It illustrates how adherents of man-made climate change get into a frenzy when you start to question its theoretical credibility.  In fact, by all polling measures it ranks very low on the priority list of the American people, and for that matter most of the world.
