PIOGA Slams DRBC for Sham Process and Not Following SRBC Example

The Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA) has come strongly against the DRBC’s proposed fracking ban, calling out the process as a sham.

PIOGA represents the independent members of Pennsylvania’s oil and gas industry and it has provided some excellent hard-hitting comments on the proposed DRBC fracking ban. They are laid out in a letter from PIOGA General Kevin J. Moody to the DRBC which raises significant new issues regarding the proposed fracking ban and new perspective on some points made here earlier. The PIOGA are easily understood, yet penetrating from a legal perspective. They will not easily be ignored.

Constitution Pipeline Asks Supremes To Rule Cuomo’s DEC Out of Order

Constitution Pipeline, having been double-crossed by Andrew Cuomo’s DEC, is taking its case to the very top in an effort to call out New York’s dirty tricks.

Constitution Pipeline was double-crossed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). It clearly happened at the direction of Mr. Machiavellian himself, Governor Andrew Cuomo, for whom every nook and cranny of human life is a political decision for him to exploit. The company, once it realized how badly it was used by Cuomo’s DEC has fought valiantly for justice. It has a compelling rehearing request pending before FERC and it has now appealed its case on another front to the U.S. Supreme Court with an equally compelling reply brief that sets out the arguments about as clearly as could be, calling out DEC for what is nothing less than a fraudulent denial.

The William Penn Foundation and It’s Plan to Make A Playground for Elites

The William Penn Foundation is using money made in chemicals to buy virtue, together with a playground for elites; a playground where we are but quiet serfs.

There’s nothing elites despise more than the rabble. Oh, they sing a tune of noblesse oblige to be sure, but you won’t find them at War-Mart. They view us as deplorables to be managed and kept at a distance. They see the beauty of the places we call home—the places we have to make a living—and immediately gravitate to worrying about its future. Will it still be available as a playground for them? What can they do to protect it from us? How can they acquire it for themselves and gradually depopulate it? These are the never-to-be-uttered, but ever-present, worries of the elites who, under the pretense of virtue and facade of tax-exemption, aim to steal our land. Among them is the William Penn Foundation.

How US Fracking Companies Defeated OPEC with Innovation

U.S. shale gas producers beat OPEC soundly through innovation in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling techniques; a continuing shale revolution.

One of our readers just sent me a wonderful article from a news site called Lima Charlie News. I was not previously aware of the site but it’s one I’m bookmarking due to the quality of this particular post entitled “Fracking, BREXIT and An Oil and Gas Shale Bonanza,” which was authored by Dr. Gary K. Busch. As the title indicates, it’s focused on the UK and the special needs and opportunities representatives by their move to develop their shale resources. It’s worth reading for that alone, but there’s another story within the story and it’s all US fracking innovation and how beat an OPEC determined to lowball price us out of existence as competition.

Curiously, New York City Now Needs More Natural Gas and Pipelines

New York City public housing faces an energy crisis brought on by an inadequate supply of natural gas the City, at every opportunity, says it doesn’t want.

Three fascinating articles appeared recently about New York City’s natural gas usage, The City, like much of New York, is an exceedingly strange place by normal standards; one where the facts must be roundly denied in favor of the political correctness rules of the day.

It’s a place where natural gas usage and benefits therefrom (lower carbon emissions, fewer asthma deaths, reduced costs, etc.) grow in direct proportion to the rhetoric of a radical anti-gas mayor who a corrupt anti-gas governor indirectly accuses of bribery. Only in New York, but the bottom line is this; New York City needs more natural gas and pipelines.

Hydraulic Fracturing: What Can’t It Do for Our Energy Security?

Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling are the twin tanks of the shale revolution and it’s not just about gas; it’s about crude oil and security, too.

Yesterday’s Today In Energy post at the Energy Information Administration (EIA) site tells so much about the beauty and extent of the shale revolution. The combination of hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling hasn’t just made the U.S. the leader in natural gas production that it now is, but has also made our nation far more energy secure in terms of crude oil as well. Hydraulic fracturing in tandem with horizontal drilling is a the kind of invention that historians will write about in the same way they once wrote about Eli Whitney’s cotton gin and Robert Fulton’s steamboat. We might well ask, in fact, what it can’t do for our energy security.

The Rich Captains of Greed Behind Environmental Extremism

Wherever you go, you find the same handful of wealthy families—captains of greed—funding environmental extremism at the expense of working families.

My last two posts here, one on the trial lawyer’s kid raising a ruckus in Coudersport and the other on the duplicitous Bill McKibben, both dealt with the very real special interests behind fractivism. Far too few people appreciate, let alone address, the role these special interests play in environmental extremism by funding it behind the scenes.

Instead, we tend to get trapped in arguing with the extremists or demonstrating how ridiculous their positions are, when the real villains are those who enable them for what are very selfish reasons. Yes, the real villains are a handful of families, captains of greed; super-wealthy families determined to control everything to advance their own interests.

Duplicitous Bill McKibben Shills for Rockefeller Special Interests

Bill McKibben has been shilling for the Rockefeller family for a very long time, trusting and turning to fit their evolving special interest agenda.

The Western Journal published a piece on Bill McKibben the other day that caught my attention as an observer of the Rockefeller family’s ubiquitous influence over all things fractivist in nature. Bill McKibben is a quick on his feet smooth talking guy who is able to adapt to circumstances. He’s been adapting a lot on the subject of natural gas, the special interests of his benefactors having evolved with the shale revolution.

Fractivist abuse of local officials reached an apex this past week as a trial lawyer’s kid harassed members of the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority.

Energy In Depth Appalachian Basin representative Nicole Jacobs did a great report Friday on a fractivist episode that took place at a meeting of the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority in Potter County. You can read the whole thing here, where she lays out the facts demonstrating exactly how little fractivists really care about the environment and how much they do care about other things.
