Frack-O-Mania

The wild and wacky world of fractivism produces strange new things (really recycled things from an old playbook) every day. It’s a virtual Frack-O-Mania competition and periodically we’ll keep adding entries to entertain our readers, allowing you to rate each on our wild and wacky scale.

Now, We Understand! Who Knew?

 
Vera Scroggins has always been a puzzlement among fractivists. She’s cultivated her “activist granny” schtick and used it to garner unusual amounts of attention for someone with her history of being the face of wacky causes. Why has an individual with so such talent wasted it in this bizarre pursuit for infamy? Well, perhaps we finally have an answer, courtesy of this Facebook page!

Read down toward the bottom and there it is:

“Vera Scroggins – Clean Energy Advocate, Hemp Advocate”

Does it surprise you in any way to learn Vera Scroggins, the granny activist is a hemp advocate or not? Tell the truth!

Exploiting the Kids for Fractivist Political Gain 

 
Is there no shame among fractivists so wedded to their ideology that they will exploit kids to sell their political agenda? Apparently not, if this State Impact photo of a fractivist protest in front of a Mars, Pennsylvania school is any indication. State Impact, of course, is funded by the same people behind the protestors, which doubles the exploitation.

Is this exploitation of children?

Was It Pajama Boy?

 
Laura Ingraham raises a great question. Was that Pajama Boy who Stuart Varney threw off the set of FOX News the other day? It certainly takes someone that gullible to believe lighting faucets on fire didn’t take place before fracking. Could it be?

Celebrity Fractivists

 
Celebrities love trendy causes to which they can attach their name in hopes of further attention and recognition for something other than their shallow craft. Mark Ruffalo is such an individual – the prototype celebrity fractivist who wants everyone to go solar like him at great expense and even greater public subsidy. Unfortunately for him, holding up up a jug of brown Dimock water that, when tested by EPA, failed to show any fracking chemicals doesn’t provide an ounce of credibility, except with other fractivists and equally shallow and emphatic media types who just love spoiled stupid celebrities. Unfortunately for Upstate New York residents, these are the folks, of course, who guided New York Governor Cuomo in his “scientific” decision.

How credible do you think Mark Ruffalo is on the subject of fracking?

Vera Goes Native

 
Vera Scroggins apparently drove up to Schoharie County, recently, to join a Mohawk Nation rally against a Kinder-Morgan pipeline project. She was treated as a heroine for equating fracking and pipelines with genocide, badmouthing George Washington and suggesting we should go back to the way things were before fossil fuels, which I guess means she must have gone back home by horse and buggy or bicycle and left her Prius to rust away somewhere along I-88. Here’s her selfie video:

We always hesitate to promote Vera, as that is what she seeks, but the entertainment value of this video is just too rich to ignore. See for yourself and look carefully at the other people there. Is that the Sierra Club’s Roger Downs in the background with body language screaming “What the hell am I doing here?” – looks like it. Well, Roger, that’s what they pay you for; to organize this kind of nonsense.

How would you rank this on our Wild and Wacky scale?

Fractivist Channels Grandma Moses

 
A Cornell University trained artist and fractivist by the name of Linda French is painting anti-fracking scenes and says it’s Grandma Moses who is guiding her paint brush:

“Channeling is the belief that a person’s body has been taken over by a spirit for the purpose of imparting wisdom and bringing about a conscious transformation. I feel that Anna Moses guided my hands in an effort to inform and educate people to the risks that lay ahead for the American rural landscape. “

Here’s a sample that is on display at the Bennington Museum in Vermont, of all places:

Delaware Riverkeeper Supports Landowners?

 
The Delaware Riverkeeper recently sent out an appeal in the form of an Action Alert to its supporters (“E-Activists”). Lo and behold, after years of pretending landowners don’t exist and undermining their interests in simply harvesting their natural resources, the Delaware Riverkeeper has suddenly recognized landowner rights!

  1. “On display in Vermont.” – that actually makes sense. The governors plan (Shyster? – Slumlord? – Shimlin?) for replacing Vermont Yankee electricity included the category – “we don’t know” for about 1/2 of it. Where the largest city, Burlington, in “going green” will import wind electricity from 70 miles away (NIMBY even to fellow residents) and hydro from Maine. I still haven’t figured out how they get the wiring from Maine to Burlington, VT. In January, Vermont generated a whopping 35% of the electricity they used. I’m in New Hmmpshire where we probably generated that electricity burning coal in Merrimack. I swear I can smell the wires burning.

      • Learn what ( what you want us to believe ) you need to learn what actually takes place in a ng drilling area instead of thinking about getting rich !!

    • Bill,

      To paraphrase my reponse to one of your similar previous posts, you should not misconstrue the reportings of, and comments on, Vera’s (or any Antis’) activities as a sign of effectiveness any more than one would consider a misbehaving, lieing, screaming, tantrum throwing child effective for being told, “NO! You can’t have your way!”, by his mother or for discussed between the mother and father.

      Do not confuse attention with credibilty for while Vera might have the former she does not have the later. And neither do you.

  2. I just happened upon your web site. My comment has to do with using low birth weight of babies caused by fracking. This bs needs to stop. I’ve had M.S. for 20 years, before gas wells were put in my neighborhood. I have continued to do better instead of worse due to my own way of fighting the disease. It wasn’t fracking that caused my M.S. Just wait a while. Fracking will soon be the reason for other things

    And by the way, I’m still waiting for my first “tremor from an earthquake.

  4. It is interesting that you think “fractivists” have something to gain besides a cleaner, safer, world. Can you explain or validate your claims? Where you have come by this perspective? Clearly the Shale Gas industry has something to gain and much to lose in this fight, but what leads you to believe the people who oppose your industry have anything besides humanity and ecology at interest?
