Natural Gas NOW
Things have reached the bottom of the barrel, scientifically speaking, if the Delaware Riverkeeper thinks Marvin Resnikoff has any credibility on TENORM.
The Delaware Riverkeeper organization has always teetered on the edge of outright lunacy, but two announcements released from their gas-heated offices in Bristol, Pennsylvania recently suggest it’s now plunging over the side into the depths of eco-insanity. The William Penn Foundation may have to re-evaluate their investment in this dirty tricks outfit.
One was the laughable announcement Maya and friends are going to lead a “Farms Not Fracking” Rally at Pennsylvania Farm Show next month. Supposedly, they’re going to express outrage over this collection of falsehoods:
Fracking is ruining farming in Pennsylvania – cows have been sickened and died, calves still born, vegetable farms destroyed, water polluted, and rural life ruined by industrial gas development.
Having grown up on a farm that benefited enormously from a gas lease a few years ago, attended many Farm Shows and witnessed what gas drilling has done for farmers in Bradford and Susquehanna Counties, the idea of Maya van Rossum, the Radnor brat, showing up there to protest on behalf of farmers is a hoot. It promises to be a repeat performance of former Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan showing up to save Dimock a few years ago and getting run out of town.
The second, and far more significant, was the equally laughable news the Riverkeeper was using Marvin Resnikoff to critique Pennsylvania DEP’s TENORM study. It’s like hiring Jimmy Buffet to teach a course on classical music.
