The Stakeholder Partnerships Used to Thwart Our Dreams

….

….

“Stakeholder partnerships,” “broad partnerships” and other groups of elitists are colluding to thwart every economic opportunity we have in rural America. 

Tom wrote an interesting story yesterday about “The Brazen Lies Being Peddled by the William Penn Foundation.” One of the links he provided was to a descriptive brochure about the Delaware Watershed Initiative and its approach. Intrigued by what these elitists were up to, I decided to check it out a little further. What I found and I didn’t find tells a lot about what these people plan for us. They hope to smash every economic dream we have.

Green Gangsters Rip Us Off While Enriching Themselves

….   

Wind energy subsidies are financing green gangster projects intended to enrich the 0.1% at the expense of ratepayers and taxpayers.

A recent Joe Mahoney article, “NY looks to the wind to replace its fossil fuel diet,” was full of half-truths and misinformation.

There is nothing “free,” “clean” or “green” about industrial wind.  Quite the contrary: the true costs of industrial wind development are astronomical. Yet, the wishful thinking of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman“green” ideologues, and “renewable” energy hustlers and subsidy seekers who benefit from this massive taxpayer and ratepayer rip-off has been repeated by countless “journalists” without question for years now.

The Brazen Lies Being Peddled by the William Penn Foundation

The William Penn Foundation, inextricably linked with the Rockefeller family, is telling some lies about water to further their special interests.

The upper region of the Delaware River basin is threatened. It’s not threatened by development but, rather, by very wealthy special interests peddling outright lies about water quality. These special interests, which include the Haas family (Philadelphia) and the Rockefellers, want to make a wilderness of this region. They’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars to scare people into giving it to them. They’re also targeting natural gas with their scare tactics; it being the one thing that could derail their scheme.

The Ugly Side of Pipeline Politics

There’s an ugly side to pipeline politics. It’s less the predictable fractivist antics of ideologues than the anticompetitive moves of some power generators.

Pipeline politics have become increasingly dirty as fractivists committed to an ideological battle have attacked project after project. Elitist foundations fund them to advance their very special interests. Unfortunately, they’re not the only special interests to play dirty pipeline politics. Some electric power generators are doing the same thing.

The Atlantic Sunrise needs help. Let’s tell Pennsylvania DEP we want affordable, reliable energy and to issue the permit immediately.

We all care deeply about the economic and energy future of Pennsylvania, and the Nation.  Please help us tell the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) before August 1, 2016 that Atlantic Sunrise is a key piece of energy infrastructure. It will only take a few moments of your time to show your support.

Pennsylvania’s 6.9% Marcellus Shale Tax

How many times have we heard Pennsylvania is the only state without a severance tax? The truth is that it has a 6.9% Marcellus Shale tax.

Last month the phony “Multi-State Shale Research Collaborative” gave Pennsylvania an “F” for not imposing a big enough shale tax. The “Collaborative” is but a fractivist-funded public employee union scam, as I noted here and here. It attacks shale to get a bigger shale tax to pay unaffordable public employee benefits. They provided some of the lies and statistics used by Tom Wolf to run his failed severance tax campaign. Now, they’re panning Pennsylvania and lauding West Virginia saying the latter’s 5% severance tax is the way to go. It turns out, though, Pennsylvania already has a Marcellus Shale tax with an effective rate of 6.9%.

Anti-Fracking Spectacle Held on Eve of DNC Convention

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

On the eve of the Philadelphia DNC, thousands of the anti-fracking crowd came out to urge policy makers to ban fracking now.

Depending on the source you read, somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 rabid Bernie Sanders fans marched in Philadelphia the other night, on the eve of the Democrat National Convention. Their raison d’etre? To “DEMAND” a national ban on fracking.

If true (one never knows with habitual liars), an anti-fracking crowd of that size is the biggest we’ve heard of. Congrats! Apparently there were two different groups marching, they couldn’t even coordinate a unified march. Typical. Below is some of the coverage of these wackos marching in the sweltering heat last night.

Fractivist Hypocrisy on Planet Ithaca?

Fractivist hypocrisy is blowing in the wind on Planet Ithaca as fracking opponents determined to force us all into renewables fight them in their back yard.

Three years ago, Tony Ingraffea, chief fractivist on Planet Ithaca, co-authored a report. It suggested New York could derive all its all-purpose energy from renewables by 2030. It was premised on 4,250 windmills providing 10% of that energy. That assumption is, as I’ve noted from my own experience with wind projects, incredibly naive. The same people who fight fracking can be counted to also oppose wind when it’s in their back yard. There’s now concrete proof of this fractivist hypocrisy from Planet Ithaca itself.

The Fracking Reality: The Fracking Banjos

Josh Fox heads to Philadelphia to play his banjo and promote renewables as the here and now energy solution; blithely ignoring the fracking reality.

Josh Fox just sent out a message to his few dozen remaining followers. He asked them to join him at the Democrat convention in Philadelphia tonight for an “epic dance party.” He says:

Normally I like to spend my birthday alone, floating down the Delaware River but this year I’m asking everyone I know to join me in Philadelphia.

I just see, in my mind’s eye, Josh Fox floating down to Philly playing his banjo the whole way; giving new meaning to the words “paddle faster, I hear banjos.” More bizarre than my imagination, though, is the reality of what Fox plans compared to the fracking reality just revealed by the Energy Information Administration.

Fractivist Highs in Colorado, Fractivist Lows in Pennsylvania

New developments in Colorado and a letter to FERC from the Delaware Povertykeeper give new meanings to fractivist highs and fractivist lows.

Two very strange things came across my desk yesterday. They didn’t seem connected at first. But, the more I thought about it, they both illustrate the absurdity of the fractivist. The first was a story about water pollution in Colorado. The second was a letter from Maya van Rossum, the Delaware Povertykeeper a/k/a Riverkeeper, to FERC regarding the PennEast Pipeline. The first is a perfect demonstration of the upside down priorities of the fractivist. The second provides an inside look at the bully mindset of the fractivist.
