London Local Energy Tells Mayor A Fracking Ban Is Silly

LNG - Nick Grealy ReportsNick Grealy
Administrator of NoHotAir/ReImagineGas Blog


Nick Grealy, CEO of London Local Energy, shares a letter he wrote to Mayor Sadiq Khan quashing his reasons to ban fracking in London.

People have asked whether this story concerns me:

Sadiq Khan will in effect ban fracking in London – and warns that extracting shale gas represents a toxic health risk.

In a controversial move, the London mayor will set out in plans to be published this week that councils across the capital should block the exploration, appraisal or production of shale gas via hydraulic fracturing, which sees rocks blasted with water to release the gas.

Pseudo-Environmentalist Groups are Nothing Short of a Ponzi Scheme


K.J. Rodgers
Crownsville, Maryland  


Environmentalist groups such as the Food and Water Watch are just a Ponzi Scheme and it is more than just investments they are robbing from us. 

When you think of Ponzi Schemes, you most likely think or Wall Street or how Bernie Madoff or Lou Pearlman ripped off their trusting investors. To your credit, you are right, but when you consider the definition of what a Ponzi Scheme is it much more broadly applicable.

Robbery! DRBC Thieves Propose Grand Theft of Land

There’s a robbery in progress. The DRBC is engaged in a grand scheme to steal land out from underneath Wayne County and its citizenry with Tom Wolf’s help.

The Delaware River basin is a drinking water source, So, is the Susquehanna River basin. The Delaware River basin includes streams officially classified as “High Quality” and “Exceptional Value.” So does the Susquehanna River basin. Gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing have been permitted by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) for a decade in that basin. The SRBC says its “water quality monitoring network has not detected discernible impacts on the quality of the Basin’s water resources as a result of natural gas development.“ The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) is run by the same governing majority of members as the SRBC, but after sitting on the issue for the same decade, now wants us to believe this same practice is too dangerous for the Delaware River basin.

Those are the facts—the only facts needed to understand the nature of this crime—the robbery of Wayne County’s land and its future. The DRBC, which is nothing more than the SRBC with different hats, is engaged in this grand theft for one reason and one reason only; it thinks it can get away with it.

Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Funds CELDF Extremism

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund or CELDF is one of the most extremist groups out there. It abuses the law and Leonardo DiCaprio funds it.

I have wondered, for the longest time where radical Tom Linzey, who, so far as I know,  has never once been gainfully employed doing anything productive, gets the money to pursue his totalitarian fantasies.

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund or CELDF has been the subject of numerous posts here. I view his extremist program, one of abusing the law and bankrupting communities to get his way, as profoundly dangerous. Why? Because his environmentalism is anything but. He is, rather a radical who wants to disrupt every aspect of our rule of law and upend our Constitution, putting the likes himself in charge as representatives of the rocks, rivers and trees.

But, who enables this Marxist extremist? Who makes it possible for his organization to continue in this grand deception as he grows fat and happy?

Media Reporting of Crestwood Victory Reveals Deep Bias

Binghamton Press reporting of a major Crestwood victory in September regarding its proposed Seneca Lake LPG storage facility speaks volumes on press bias.

Local media here in Broome County has helped drive our region into poverty with biased articles by the likes of Tom Wilber in particular, who incessantly writes about natural gas issues and glowingly features “activists” who are against anything having to do with fossil fuels. Meanwhile, he totally ignores the cost in human suffering by landowners and others whose lives would be far off better financially had we been given the chance to extract our Marcellus Shale natural gas.

The New Alternative Fuel: Natural Gas and Its Derivatives!

An awakening? Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says natural gas (along with propane) is the new alternative fuel; the elixir for cleaning Pennsylvania’s air.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf issued a press release Monday to take credit for/crow about handing out another $1 million of taxpayer money. This time the money is part of the state’s Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants (AFIG) program—a program aimed at replacing gasoline and diesel fuel or at least replacing a little bit of it—a token gesture. The state issued grants totaling more than $1.1 million in their effort to replace fossil fuels as the fuel that powers vehicles.

Florida Legislators Think Oil and Sunshine Don’t Mix

Florida legislators resist the economic oil boom and debate a fracking ban in their state believing that oil and sunshine don’t mix.

A recent commentary in the local press of Southwest Florida, suggested renewable energy is the future, but the author reluctantly resigned himself to the fact oil is the preferred energy source for now.

We may add that “now,” based on the pace of progress made in renewables such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels, may well be the next century. The oil and gas industry has made great strides in finding, producing, and transporting hydrocarbons which has further extended the life and lowered the cost of these energy sources.

Picking Energy Winners and Losers No Job for Government

Energy Alliance


A proposed FERC rule to protect coal and nuclear power is a huge mistake. Government has no business picking energy winners and losers. Let the market work!

Abundant, affordable energy is the foundation of modern prosperity. One of the most pernicious things that the Obama administration did was to interfere with the availability of affordable energy, lavishing subsidies and regulatory support on any trendy, inefficient and expensive technology or energy source that could be branded as “renewable.” The Obama administration’s government distortions raised costs for consumers and destroyed jobs in industries that did not gain government favor in an attempt to “finally make clean energy the profitable kind of energy.” This picking of energy winners and losers is no way to manage competitive markets in a free society.

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about road improvements, severance tax, paid agitators and much more last week.

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 Jim Cheunes, Gas & Oil Field Manager of Best Line Equipment and John Plowman, Executive Director of Hunters Sharing the Harvest.

How Will Upstate NY Ever Survive Corruptocrat and Company?

Natural Gas NOW


Andrew Cuomo a/k/a Gov. Corruptocrat, aided by a spineless Senate, is killing Upstate NY by throwing money at boondoggles while denying it a ready remedy.

Just how is that Upstate NY is supposed to survive the debacle that is Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo and a mostly Upstate NY Republican Senate that enables him every step of the way? No clearer evidence exists of the state of corruption that is the Empire State than the continuing political freak show that is New York’s economic development program under Cuomo.

Billion after billion, indictment after indictment and failure after failure, Cuomo’s strategy has been one of choosing winners poorly and making a loser out of the one thing that would have made a huge positive difference. That was, of course, natural gas development and it needed none of his help, which its precisely why he felt no remorse in killing it for the sake of appeasing the NRDC gang.
