… 

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”

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com

… 

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.

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.

Shale, Not Renewable Energy, Is Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Institute for
Energy Research

….
….  

The facts are the facts and it’s shale, not renewable energy, that’s allowing the U.S. to reduce carbon dioxide emissions while others merely yap about it.

Carbon dioxide emissions, the largest component of greenhouse gases, have been declining in the United States, mainly due to the shale gas renaissance. Between 2005 and 2016, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions declined by 12 percent. However, China’s carbon dioxide emissions over the same period increased by 50 percent, surpassing U.S. carbon dioxide emissions in 2006.

The Ugly Truth Behind Truthout, the CELDF and Grant Township

… 

The truth behind the Grant Township injection well controversy is ugly. The parties taking advantage of the Township are totalitarian wannabes out for power.

We previously reported on the story of two Pennsylvania townships that were either hoodwinked, or perhaps willing led astray, by the radical Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) into passing (now overturned) bans on fracking and injection wells in their towns; Highland Township (Elk County) and Grant Township (Indiana County). The CELDF continues to agitate against the Indiana Township injection well hoping to producer anarchy.

What Shale Drilling Has Done for World Peace and Security

Weir and Partners, LLP

 

Shale drilling, whether for oil or gas, has made a huge contribution to world peace and security and it’s time we all recognized it and operated accordingly.

The importance of shale to world peace and security never was more in evidence than during the last two weeks.  The fact that very few people know about it underscores why.

Conservancies Are for Conservation, Not Politics

ConservanciesGeorge P. Ahearn, Phd

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is doing politics in opposing fracking, not conservation, and it has its facts all wrong, thanks to New York’s Tony Ingraffea.

Is the Conservancy of Southwest Florida a real conservation entity or is it a political advocacy organization with only an environmental agenda? The consensus view of conservationism is that it should be a collaborative effort to ensure the economic, environmental preservation and safety of the community. Such an organization works with business, scientific, and political leaders to achieve these ends. 

Therefore, the developer, the corporate community and the local government should not be viewed as the enemy. There should be open dialogue about the agenda and all sides of the issues should be represented. Conservancy members should get a balanced exposure to the issues and the agenda should not be set by partisan politics.
