Tombstone Trickery: The Fractivist Descent Into Darkness

… 

Fractivist opponents of the Atlantic Sunrise have descended deep into darkness with an episode of vile tombstone trickery disrespectful of living and dead.

How much more vile can the fractivist cause get? First, there were the outrageous exaggerations and lies. Then, came the foul-mouthed bleating of fractivist heroes accorded celebrity status by an empathetic and biased press, not to mention the junk science, the ridiculous stunts and the vicious propaganda. Now, though, the fractivist cause, such as it is, has descended deeper than ever into darkness with something so vile it’s disrespectful to all human beings. They have engaged in tombstone trickery.

The Radical Rockefeller Campaign Against Pipelines

… 

The increasingly radical Rockefeller family is funding an anti-pipeline campaign on many fronts, including in West Virginia where their puppets are suing.

A group of profoundly radical “environmental” organizations filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit last Friday against the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) – for doing their job. The Sierra Club, West Virginia Rivers Coalition, Indian Creek Watershed Association, Appalachian Voices and Chesapeake Climate Action Network have sued the DEP because the department had the audacity to conduct a very thorough review, and then issue a stream and water-crossing permit (demanded under federal law) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).

Carpetbagging Delaware Riverkeeper Loses SWPA Case

… 

The Delaware Riverkeeper, financed by the Haas and Wallace families to kill Keystone State fracking and opportunity, just lost big in a Southwestern PA case.

THE Delaware Riverkeeper (i.e. Maya van Rossum) and a small group of anti-drilling parents from the Mars School District (“Martians”) in Butler County, Pennsylvania (more than 200 miles from the Delaware River, the protection of which is supposedly the former’s mission) have just suffered a crushing defeat in their years-long battle to prevent Rex Energy from drilling wells “near” a local school.

If You’ve Lost Labour, You Can Hang It Up As A Fractivist

… 

If what’s happening in the UK is any indication, with a Labour candidate asking for reason when it comes to fracking, you can now hang it up as a fractivist.

Something remarkable just happened in the UK that portends the approaching end of fractivism both there and here. The UK is the midst of an election. A Labour Party parliamentary candidate for North East Derbyshire named Natascha Engel just said “spreading scare stories for which there is no reliable evidence about increases in cancer rates and low-birth-weight babies is unforgiveable” and “should have no place in the debate about energy, climate change and shale.” It’s something akin to the Flat earth Society sponsoring a “round the world” cruise and reflects a new political reality — fractivism isn’t selling anywhere outside beyond the ivory towers of the gentry class.

The Shrinking Fractivist Play Book Down to the Flea Flicker

The fractivist play book keeps shrinking and they’re now down to flea flicker type moves that attract attention but seldom deliver anything but big losses.

Football, if it weren’t for the ridiculous politicization of the game this year, gets interesting in  December as marginal teams take chances to improve their prospects for getting into title games. One of the oddest of such maneuvers is the flea flicker play. It appears our fractivist friends have resorted to it with a bizarre accusation that the EPA fracking was modified to please the industry. Folks, if the fractivist play book is down to this, the game is over.

The Fractivist Mindset: Arrogant and Condescending

The recent election, whatever way one may have voted, really brought out the reality of the fractivist mindset; arrogant and condescending.

Readers of this blog have sent me links to two different tweets by perhaps the most prominent fractivists out there; Bill McKibben and Josh Fox. They reveal the incredible arrogance and condescension of those of the fractivist mindset. There is, in fact, very little more that needs to be said once you’ve seen them.

The Idiocracy of Fractivists and Their Junk Science

Regardless of the facts, those who are in opposition to gas refuse to believe that it can provide any good – unless it has electrolytes.

Some days I feel as if I had been put in a cryogenic chamber and have wakened up 500 years in the future like Luke Wilson in the movie Idiocracy. I feel as if the truth is right there in our face, yet some of us are too ignorant to realize it.

Keep It in the Ground? No, Give Us More Please and Faster!

There is a lot more to natural gas and other fossil fuels than energy and fuel, although Keep It in the Ground types would have us believe otherwise.

The biggest misconception anti-gas activists like to push is that there are real alternatives to fossil fuels in most every case. I see one fellow regularly comment on NaturalGasNow posts on Facebook saying just that. He never follows up with fact or responds when people ask him to elaborate. This is the gist of the anti message; that we can simply replace gas and oil. These are your typical “Keep It in the Ground” people.

New York State’s Natural Gas Hypocrisy

….
….

There is no natural gas hypocrisy like New York natural gas hypocrisy as recent Energy Information Administration data vividly demonstrates.

A few days ago I highlighted Energy Information Administration (EIA) data showing just how extensive the shale revolution has been. This was followed yesterday with data demonstrating the future energy shortage facing New York State. One missing part of the story I didn’t address, though, was the degree to which New York is growing its natural gas use even as it says no to natural gas by denying pipeline approvals and killing fracking. Call it New York State’s growing natural gas hypocrisy.

The Fast Approaching New York Energy Shortage

….
….

Andrew Cuomo, Governor Corruptocrat, is setting the Empire State up for a New York energy shortage that will be painful for consumers.

Earlier this year, I wrote about the poetic justice in Andrew Cuomo having to impose restrictions on energy use during the hot days of summer. Air conditioning demands in the city were stretching the system to its limits just a couple of months following his contemptible and highly political denial of a routine water quality permit for the Constitution Pipeline. I quoted a New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) report warning of the fast approaching New York energy shortage. Others are also now issuing warnings. There is, in fact, arguably a New York Energy shortage already as Andrew Cuomo fritters  time away on politically correct but ineffective solutions.
