Chairman, Dyberry Township Supervisors

 

This is the testimony of Kevin McGinnis given at the January 23rd DRBC Hearing in Waymart on their proposed fracking ban. Let it speak for itself.

I am Chairman of Dyberry Township Supervisors. I am here to state the Supervisors’ opposition to the fracking ban.

The ban, is in effect, a taking away of property rights and assets, without compensation.

Not only is this action un-American, but it is also a violation of the United States Constitution.

The DRBC Hearings: Landowners vs. Special Interest Groupies

Two of the DRBC hearings on its scandalous proposed fracking ban took place in Waymart, Pennsylvania. It was landowners versus the special interest groupies.

Yesterday afternoon and last night, the Delaware River Basin Commission or DRBC held two of the scheduled DRBC hearings on their proposed fracking ban. The hearings took place at the Salvation Army’s Lake Ladore conference facility under the shadow of the Moosic Mountain separating the DRBC and SRBC watersheds. Both hearings were contests between “special interest groupies”—as NaturalGasNOW reader Fred Peckham accurately characterized them—and local landowners.

Why the DRBC Is Acting Now: The Motive for Its Dirty Trick

The DRBC has picked a very strange time and even stranger location for hearings on its proposed fracking ban, which is the dirty trick for all time.

Tomorrow, the Delaware River Basin Commission or DRBC will be holding two hearings in Waymart, Pennsylvania on a proposed fracking ban. The hearings will be held, ironically, on the doorstep of the Susquehanna River basin where the same players have allowed natural gas drilling for a decade with “no discernible impacts” on water. Why is DRBC pursuing a fracking ban now? Why has it chosen a location for hearings that highlights the evidence against their proposed ban? The answer to the second question is, sadly, a simple one: gross incompetence compounded with the blindness of those refusing to see.

PennEast Pipeline Approved by FERC Over Fractivist Objections

FERC has approved construction of the PennEast Pipeline, rejecting objections ginned up through an organized campaign funded by the William Penn Foundation.

Although it will still need approvals from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the Delaware River Basin Commission or DRBC (which has no actual authority over pipelines but to which PennEast agreed to submit), the PennEast Pipeline now has FERC approval. It came despite a parade of ridiculous objections raised by project opponents, many of whom, just like the DRBC, have been funded by the detestable trust-funders at the William Penn Foundation. The Delaware Riverkeeper’s assertions got particularly short shrift, in fact.

UDRBC Calls Out the DRBC Fracking Ban As Discrimination and Theft

….
…. 

The Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens or UDRBC has called out the DRBC fracking ban as unfair, a theft of property rights, overreach and discrimination.

The proposed ban on natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin by the DRBC is a travesty.  It can be summed up as unfair politics, theft of property rights, overreach with respect to the DRBC Compact, and discrimination across county lines.

The DRBC Is Engaged in High Stakes, High-Tech Colonialism

They want the land, they’ve always wanted it. Now, they’re stealing it out from underneath us—just taking it—with some high stakes, high-tech colonialism.

Two miles west of Waymart, Pennsylvania, where the DRBC will hold two of its hearings on a proposed fracking ban later this month, is the border between the Delaware and Susquehanna River basins. Those on this, the Delaware side, of what might as well as be the Berlin Wall for us, are seeing a theft of our natural resources and economic futures by gentry class colonialists who would prefer our homeland be their playland.

Memorandum to DRBC: Don’t Be Dolts!

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval
Professional Petroleum Geologist.

 

John J. Interval wants the DRBC permanent fracking ban rejected for the sake of the economy and protection of property owner’s rights.

Protecting private property rights is a bedrock principle of a free society and a key to explaining American prosperity.

That principle is in danger of being subverted. The Delaware River Basin Commission, which consists of the governors of New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania, and the federal government, represented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, proposes a permanent ban on fracking for natural gas in the Delaware River watershed without any compensation for landowners who own the rights to gas resources and who stand to lose millions of dollars in royalties. It also translates into less revenue for local governments and school systems.

The “D” in DRBC Is for Deceitful Double-Standards

natural gas boats - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The Delaware River Basin Commission proposes to ban hydraulic fracturing in the basin but it’s just the SRBC with a different hat applying double-standards.

The “D” in DRBC can now truly be said to stand for deceitful double-standards, given a proposed ban on hydraulic fracturing that deliberately ignores what its members know to be the facts from also being the governing majority of the SRBC.

Those proposed double-standards, in fact, are being used to inversely condemn the property of thousands of  Pennsylvanians who happen to reside in the one county in the Commonwealth with natural gas resources where they cannot be developed. There’s massive taking—a theft of land and minerals—in progress; one in which the primary tools of the thieves are the blinders they’ve put on themselves so as to not see what’s before their eyes.
