Indoctrinated Children Say the Darndest Things

Indoctrinated children are being taught at an early age to believe fracking is polluting the water and air, overlooking the actual facts of the matter. 

Children can say the darndest things. We all have had the pleasure of hearing a child say or explain something that was funny, unbeknownst to them. For a while, there were even a few television shows that highlighted the cuteness of what they may say about a variety of topics.

Tombstone Trickery: The Fractivist Descent Into Darkness

… 

Fractivist opponents of the Atlantic Sunrise have descended deep into darkness with an episode of vile tombstone trickery disrespectful of living and dead.

How much more vile can the fractivist cause get? First, there were the outrageous exaggerations and lies. Then, came the foul-mouthed bleating of fractivist heroes accorded celebrity status by an empathetic and biased press, not to mention the junk science, the ridiculous stunts and the vicious propaganda. Now, though, the fractivist cause, such as it is, has descended deeper than ever into darkness with something so vile it’s disrespectful to all human beings. They have engaged in tombstone trickery.

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM and 1510 AM, talked about top producers, oil prices, longest Marcellus well and much more last week.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week, as guests, we had Joe Reinhart, of Babst Calland’s Energy and Natural Resources Group and Jude Clemente, regular Forbes contributor and researcher at JTC Energy Research.

Fractivists Use Pennsylvania Supreme Court As Weapon

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

Fractivists have succeeded (barely) in employing the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as a weapon of obstruction against natural gas development in the Commonwealth.

As they so often do, radical environmentalists are creating chaos and confusion; this time in Pennsylvania. As MDN reported, earlier this week the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, in a sharply divided 3-2 decision, sided with a virulent anti-drilling group, the Pennsylvania Environmental Defense Foundation, against the state in saying that any revenue generated from leasing and drilling on state-owned land MUST be used solely for conservation and the environment. The aim of the PA EDF is to disrupt Marcellus Shale drilling by any means necessary. This is one of those means.

Power Thirsty River Basin Commissions Out of Control

… 

River basin commissions created by compacts to coordinate water resource planning have become greedy bureaucratic empires thirsty for ever more control.

There is battle for sovereignty going on this country between states and river basin commissions they created long ago to jointly develop water resources. It’s like a scene out of that old movie 2001, where a computer named Hal suddenly assumes control over its makers. River basin commissions such as the ones created for the Delaware and Susquehanna River watersheds are accumulating power to themselves over land use and economic development with metastasizing regulations and fees that are rendering state governments more and more irrelevant.

100% Renewable Energy Plan: Junk Science at Its Best

FractivistsK.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  

….
…. 

A new retort to a 100% renewable energy plan exposes all of the flaws with the assumptions the author made to prevent ill-advised legislation.

Politicians, like all actors, thrive to be center stage and maintain their celebrity status on key issues. They’ll disregard the facts with abandon to secure an audience and hype up pretty much any situation. Opportunism is their stock-in-trade. Any topic can be hijacked with complete disregard for the truth at any time and faster than a speeding bullet. Successful activist groups grasp this better than most and exploit politicos and other actors at will. Such has been the case several times with fracking and most recently with Mark Jacobson’s ridiculous renewables plan.

Cabot Celebrates Decade of Milestones in Susquehanna County

It’s been a decade of milestones since Marcellus Shale brought Cabot to Susquehanna County. WNEP’s Power to Save looks back at the benefits to the community.

Earlier this month we announced something pretty incredible: since beginning operations in Susquehanna County, Cabot has paid its landowners more than $1 billion in royalties. And that figure doesn’t even include the nearly $500 million paid out in signing bonuses for their leases.

Energy Economics: Production Up, Costs Down

SolarInstitute for
Energy Research

….
….  

As the natural gas industry grows, it is also streamlining how energy is produced. Keeping costs down now takes less manpower, which is just good economics.

In the debates over energy markets and climate change policy, people often cite dueling statistics over jobs. Two recent examples concern the different amounts of workers-per-electricity-output across various fuel types, and the impact of greenhouse gas emissions restrictions on American jobs. In both cases, the advocates of government intervention in the energy sector misunderstand the economic rationale of jobs.

Teamsters: Pipeline Projects Mean More Local Jobs

Teamsters National Pipeline Training Fund

Pipeline projects such as the Williams Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline mean more local jobs, the Teamsters National Pipeline Training Fund told DEP last week.

Last week, I offered the following testimony at a Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania hearing on the very important Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project. A copy of my full submission, including exhibits, may be found here. My point, and the main point as I see it, was and is that pipeline jobs result in local employment; a fact often poorly understood by those who suppose pipelines are built by out-of-towners.

Corruptocrat Gives SolarCity Get Out Of Jail Free Card?

… 

Andrew Cuomo, Governor Corruptocrat, imagines he can now get away with anything. That’s obvious from the deal he just cut with the Musk empire and SolarCity.

The SolarCity deal made by Andrew Cuomo, Governor Corruptocrat of New York, is emblematic of the Tammany Hall governance Mario’s boy has brought to the Empire State. It’s also as revealing as any case could be of the problem with subsidized renewable energy. It’s a special brand of corporatism that distorts markets rather than disrupts them (which is healthy) and rips off other ratepayers and taxpayers to the long-term detriment of that which it promotes – economically viable renewable energy. The deal Corruptocrat just gave SolarCity, now part of Tesla, just took New York and the solar industry another giant step in this wrong direction.
