Speculative Testimony Doesn’t Cut It in Dimock Case

Constitution Pipeline - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.

Judge in Dimock case orders new trial; plaintiff’s evidence was based on speculative testimony and unable to support the conclusion of the jury.

Last week, Judge Martin Carlson of the Middle District of Pennsylvania kicked asunder one of the pillars of the “Fracking Is Evil” movement when he vacated the jury award of $4.24 million to the plaintiffs in the case of Nolen Scott Ely v. Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation.   The jury verdict, in a case actually tried before Judge Carlson, is the culmination of the now famous Dimock, Pennsylvania situation made famous by “environmental activists” like Josh Fox, Susan Sarandon and Mark Ruffalo.  To the movement, “Dimock” has become synonymous with industry negligence and malfeasance.  Judge Carlson’s opinion now casts doubt on that characterization.

Pennsylvania House Does “From Here to Sanity” with No Severance Tax

… 


The Pennsylvania House passes its budget bill insisting on no new tax increases and excludes the insane severance tax being pushed by Governor Tom Wolf.

On Monday Pennsylvania House Republicans released their version of a state budget, and yesterday (Tuesday) they voted to pass it. Ba-boom! The budget is noteworthy for many reasons. Of prime interest to MDN is that the budget does NOT include PA Gov. Tom Wolf’s insane 6.5% severance tax.

StateImpactPA Is Part of A Fractivist Freak Show

….

….

The March 31st StateImpactPA article entitled “Judge cancels jury award to Dimock families; orders new trial” is a typical fractivist freak show in print.

A glance to the right of the StateImpactPA headline shot below reveals the clutches of the sleazy Heinz Endowments and William Penn Foundation. Both organizations spend millions to deprive middle class citizens of their God given property rights for the benefit of a wealthy few (read all about it here):

StateImpactPA

StateImpactPA is one of their tools.

“DEC Was Ready… the Governor’s Office Was Not”

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

… 


The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has, under Prince Corruptocrat, been abused and misused to do the dirty work of the NRDC.

Last week MDN brought you the news a federal judge had dismissed a case brought by the Constitution Pipeline against the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) over the issue of denying water crossing permits for the project. What we have since come to understand is this was one of two lawsuits filed by the Constitution against DEC. In fact, it was the lesser of the two lawsuits. The “biggie” lawsuit is still not yet decided. That decision will come from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit–and is due to arrive within the next two months. The fate of the project hangs in the balance.

An Even Deeper Inconvenient Truth

….
….  

Vic Furman makes some practical observations about rising sea levels and Al Gore’s hyperbole on the subject of global warming and the role of natural gas.

Al Gore’s movie an “Inconvenient Truth” won two academy awards along with other less prestigious awards. His movie was based on science! Or was it? In the movie he shows large chunks of glaciers falling off the main body of ice splashing into an ocean filled with already floating chunks of ice. He predicted rising sea levels that will flood costal cities by 2015 making once dry coastal urban cities into the new Venice where boats are used to navigate waterways between buildings instead of the automobile! Some perspective is way overdue.

PennEast Pipeline Finally Takes the Gloves Off

… 


The PennEast Pipeline is finally talking the way it should; taking the gloves off to call out the Delaware Povertykeeper (a/k/a Riverkeeper for what it is.

As we reported the other day, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed a year ago by THE Delaware Riverkeeper against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The lawsuit aimed to shut down the entire agency by defunding it. The lawsuit claimed FERC can’t objectively make decisions about projects like the Penn East Pipeline (running from the Wilkes-Barre area to New Jersey) because FERC derives some of its operating revenue from the projects it either approves or does not approve. It went nowhere.

Conestoga Supervisors Must Take Stand Against “The Stand”

Jennifer Fischer
Lancaster County Resident

… 

Rural, beautiful Conestoga Township, Pennsylvania, located in southern Lancaster County, has the unfortunate potential of being ground zero for what could become out-of-control, DAPL-like protests against Williams’ Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project.

Over the past several months, opponents of Atlantic Sunrise, which is proposed to connect much needed natural gas from the northern Marcellus to Williams’ existing Transco pipeline in Lancaster County, have been organizing an effort to disrupt the pipeline’s construction. A landowner in Conestoga Township, whose property will be crossed by Atlantic Sunrise, is allowing their farmland to serve as an encampment area for project opponents who hope to attract thousands of protesters to assemble in opposition to the project.

Protesters have even erected a tall wooden structure, which they dub “The Stand,” to represent their “stand” against Atlantic Sunrise. They plan to allow access to the farm to thousands of unknown people, coming from anywhere and everywhere, to protest Williams’ project. In fact, environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club, claim “The Stand” will serve as a DAPL-like protest event. It’s exactly what we don’t need in Lancaster County.
