The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline will increase access to affordable Pennsylvania natural gas to meet the needs of over seven million homes.

Our friend and associate, Mike Atchie, Manager of Public Outreach, with Williams Partners, provided this guest post for Well Said Cabot, which I’m pleased to share here as well. You can learn more about Atlantic Sunrise by visiting the project’s website or connecting on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Google+.

On Feb. 3, the future of Pennsylvania’s energy landscape got a little brighter when the Federal Environmental Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing Williams Partners’ Atlantic Sunrise.

Seals to Natural Gas, Environmental Activists Protest Anything

Environmental activists claim they are doing good work and saving the planet, but they are really just protesting for fun. 

Recently, I have become obsessed with podcasts. Everything from true crime to random ideas and TED Talks keep my mind wondering on my morning commute to work. Recently, I was listening to This American Life and was reassured of what I already knew; activists are crazy and will seek out things to rally around.

How to Shift An Energy Burden to Others While Virtue Signaling

….
….

Nick Grealy explains how those who oppose fracking are unwittingly shifting their energy burden onto the backs of others.

Here’s a story based on cultural anthropology, the study of human cultures.  Culture is bottom up. The story of man is from individuals to families, to bands, to groups, to villages, to tribes, to cities to countries – and today to the world.

Deep in the Amazon rain forest there still remain uncontacted tribes, humans who, by choice or geography, have no contact with the outside world.

Public Employee Unions vs. Pennsylvania Economy

… 

Aside from fractivist shills paid by the Heinz Endowments, William Penn Foundation, etc. no one’s threatening Pennsylvania economy more than public unions.

Pennsylvania State Rep. Greg Vitali, from the Philadelphia area, is an environmental extremist. In the past, he’s floated plans to force Pennsylvanians to use less natural gas. Nobody, except some media outlets, pay any attention to him. He’s so far left even his own party has disowned him, removing a committee assignment from him and reassigning personnel away from his office. But Vitali needs to keep his name in the news–for reelection purposes. So, a few weeks ago he popped back up again with a faux report that says “the system is rigged” in Harrisburg with respect to failing to pass a severance tax.

The Lesson from DAPL: Fight Back Quickly

Natural Gas NOW

… 

DAPL is teaching the oil and gas industry something; companies taunted by fractivist games and special interests need to fire a lot of people and get tough.

Marcellus Drilling News does it again. Nobody digs up more facts that others need to know about the oil and gas industry than Jim Willis. A perfect example is the testimony he published Friday from Joey Mahmoud, Energy Transfer Partners’ Project Director for the Dakota Access Pipeline. That testimony documents so much of what others know about DAPL that simply isn’t true. It’s a plain-spoken document and candid; two features one almost never gets out of the corporate public relations and legal world, where rolling over and spitting out bland disingenuous mush are the preferred weapons for defending the industry from those who wish to kill it.

Maryland Fracking Hitting Wall with Fake Facts

…. 

Maryland fracking may have hit a stalemate. With nearly seven more months before we can break ground, the competition is getting tough as fake facts fly. 

Compromise is a term that is often thrown around when it comes to hot topic debates, but the truth is, there is often no compromise, only irony. This is even truer when we look at current events with respect to Maryland fracking. Just like the Southern Tier of New York, Western Maryland needs natural gas development to prosper economically but is at the mercy of urban demagogues who dominate state politics and couldn’t possibly care less.

What DAPL Tells Us About Fractivists and Other Frauds

… 

DAPL offers an in-depth look into the spoiled child minds of fractivists and other environmental activists who have turned out to be merely fakes and frauds.

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) has shown us precisely who fractivists really are; frauds of the first order. We’ve told story after story here about the whole thing not because it has much to do with natural gas but, rather, because the DAPL opponents are our opponents, too.

What they’re doing in North Dakota is what they want to do everywhere. They latched onto the cause as it provided everything they could hope for; disenfranchised Native Americans being bullied by big oil, a sacred life style being disrupted by a pipeline and threatened water. It was the perfect stage for a fractivist theatrical performance. But, then the audience starting walking out and the actors followed, leaving behind a mess for the supposed victims (for whom they claimed to speak) to clean up. DAPL has told the world what a bunch of frauds fractivists really are.

SCCTC has ten new pioneers in its classroom as it pilots a new dual credit program with Lackawanna College.  My discussion with the group of select students focused on how fortunate they are and how they are responsible for the next generation of students to follow in their footsteps.

The Arrogant Orchestrated World of Fractivism

Natural Gas NOW

… 

Fractivism has been on full display this week as the arrogant orchestrated world of astroturf that it really is; a disdainful power grab financed by elites.

Yesterday, as I expected and feared would happen the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) surrendered yet again to the orchestrated efforts of one its own funders to intimidate it. A DRBC hearing at which the public was supposedly restricted to commenting “only on the items that have been advertised in the public hearing notice,” and at which there was supposed to be “NO open public comment session,” was allowed to become another fiasco of fractivism.

How Shale Gas and Fracking Are Saving Pennsylvania Farms

… 

Fracking makes all the difference for Pennsylvania farms; income generated from shale gas allows the farms to stay operational.

Some farms not only produce products like milk, meat, eggs and/or crops–some farms produce energy. Would it surprise you to learn that in 2014 (the most recent year with stats available), energy companies paid farmers a staggering $2.9 billion for the energy extracted from private farms?
