UDRBC Secretary

 

Betty Sutliff, retired public school teacher, UDRBC secretary and former NWPOA officer, had a message for the DRBC yesterday; it’s all about the justice.

Good morning, Chairman Metcalfe and members of the State House Government Committee.  My name is Betty Sutliff and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to speak today.  

I would like to address the double standard that exists between the Delaware River Basin and the Susquehanna River Basin in Pennsylvania with regard to the extraction of natural gas and the injustice of that double standard.  As a retired teacher, my first step in preparing for today, of course, was to consult Merriam-Webster and others with my sights focused on the words “unjust” and “injustice.”

The Meaning of the Shale Revolution this Memorial Day

DRBC fracking ban - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The shale revolution is a miracle. It’s cleaned the air, reduced carbon emissions, lowered energy costs, built rural economies and made for energy security.

Today, as we honor those who gave their lives for America, it’s appropriate to focus on the contributions of the shale revolution to our American security. We have, over the course of the revolution, gone from a bleak future of continued dependence for energy on “death to America” spirited suppliers to a situation of world energy dominance. It has been a remarkable transformation of prospects that has made America more energy secure than ever. A recent “Today In Energy” column from the Energy Information Administration tells the story from a factual perspective.

No Evidence of Methane Contamination from Recent Oil and Gas Drilling in Ohio

DRBC fracking ban - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Whoa! Geologists at the University of Cincinnati examined drinking water in Carroll, Stark and Harrison Counties, Ohio, and found no methane contamination.

The Deer Creek Foundation is no friend of fracking. It’s part of the fractivist echo chamber, in fact. They funded a study by the University of Cincinnati in hopes the research would yield results verifying methane contamination. They wanted tout those results to continue their defense against a shale revolution delivering economic revival, energy security and environmental improvement across Ohio, Pennsylvania and the rest of our great nation. They were disappointed. The results showed no methane contamination from recent oil and gas drilling in Ohio.

The Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) met with Pennsylvania DEP officials Wednesday to talk about its future and what a DRBC fracking ban would do.

Six members of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) made a three hour trip to Harrisburg on March 28 to meet with Pennsylvania DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell.  The same group had previously spoken with the Secretary following a “Cabinet in Your Community” meeting at Wallenpaupack High School as time was not allotted for their questions to be addressed during the meeting.

Josh Fox is Back and Pushing Support of the DRBC Fracking Ban

Josh Fox has resurfaced and has sent out an email blast trying to drum up support for the DRBC’s proposed fracking ban. Let’s shut him down.

Josh Fox, as you may remember, is a fractivist known for his anti-fracking screed Gasland. It was a sham; full of deceit and exaggerations. It did not take long to realize this spoiled child extremist had no credibility and certainly no concern for anything but promoting himself.

Canadian Health Study from Last Year Stands in the Way of a Rolling Stone

A ludicrous “health study” led by fractivists and published in fake news outlet Rolling Stone, is countered by a Canadian health study from last year.

Rolling Stone just published a laughable “health study” conducted by a team of committed fractivists. It’s not a study at all, in fact, but a junk science compendium, as Seth Whitehead at Energy In Depth illustrates, demolishing the whole thing to the point there’s nothing left of it. Read his detailed analysis and see just how bad this most recent effort by Sandra Steingraber and company real is. The only thing he left out is the fact Sandra has heated her own home with natural gas while attacking fracking.

What Two-Faced Trust-Funder Tom Wolf (and Others) Said Then

Betty Sutliff quotes Gov. Tom Wolf on natural gas development from when he wasn’t acting as a DRBC member and was actually representing Pennsylvanians.

Politicians such as Governor Tom Wolf have a habit of saying the darnedest things, especially where it comes to natural gas development but it seems to matter a lot who they’re addressing.

In this post I am choosing to let the politicians speak for themselves and readers can compare their statements then with what they’re saying now about natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin.

….

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.

Lancashire for Shale and Cuadrilla produced a great video which does a fantastic job of explaining the geology involved in fracking.

Our friends at Lancashire for Shale, along with the good people of Cuadrilla, have put together a marvelous video lesson in geology. This well done video does a great job of illustrating how to tell the miracle story of shale, in the hopes of launching a UK Shale Revolution of their own, much like the United States is experiencing.
