Deep Green Resistance and Friends More Red Than Green

… 

Deep Green Resistance is both radical and dangerous and it’s made alliances with the favorite fractivist shills of a supposedly respectable gentry class.

Deep Green Resistance is a very dangerous organization. The group’s operation manual, “Decisive Ecological Warfare,” is a diatribe on how to “disrupt and dismantle industrial civilization.” Among the strategies for doing so is “engag[ing] in direct militant actions against industrial infrastructure, especially energy infrastructure.” The whole enterprise is “aimed at identifying key points and bottlenecks in the adversary’s system (electrical, transport, financial, and so on) and engaging them to collapse those systems or reduce their functionality.” Deep Green Resistance is radically opposed to civilization as we know it and it has friends in strange places.

Fractivists Who Fought for Home Rule Now Oppose It?

Constitution Pipeline - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

Double standards employed by fractivists regarding home rule and natural gas development are nothing less than staggering, as the Gorsline case illustrates.

Every so often Mother Nature gets angry at the hubris exhibited by humans in their belief that they can control world climate. In response she teaches us a lesson. We are getting one here on the Mid-Atlantic Seaboard as she dumps heavy wet snow all over, paralyzing the entire area. What a pleasure to know that the ultimate weapon remains outside of human hands.

What DAPL Protesters Accomplished and Didn’t

Natural Gas NOW

… 

DAPL protesters accomplished a great deal, even if they didn’t stop a pipeline. They busted budgets, curtailed services and upset lives to swell their egos.

The malcontents have gone back home. Ivy Preparatory School League graduate Judith Lockhard has gone back to New Jersey, no doubt to publicly express her feelings on some other cause. Glenn Wahl has gone back to New York to spin yarns to his Jamestown Community College students about his experience. The kids in Somerville, Massachusetts have gone on to protest other things, I expect. Oil will flow through the pipeline in a matter of days. The filthy hell-hole that was the DAPL protesters’ camp has been cleaned up. It’s a time for reflection on what the DAPL protesters accomplished and didn’t.

CELDF Seeks to Seize Municipalities and Turn Them Into Torpedos

CELDF - report on Mora countyTom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

 

Tom Linzey, the over-stuffed radical child who leads the CELDF, wants to seize municipalities and turn them into torpedoes in his revolutionary power grab.

No group has more abused local government than the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), which would have everyone believe its the advocate of home rule and the government that’s closest to the people. The CELDF stands for democracy and “community rights” it says, but it’s actions speak to a different agenda, one that gleefully talks of municipalities as mere material to forge into torpedoes for its war against civil society.

Tom Linzey is the forger-in-chief at the CELDF. A trust-funder type who’s never worked at real job, he and his girl friend Stacey Schmader formed the CELDF right after he graduated from law school. He’s been living off it since, prancing around the country like some sort of radical warrior throwing spears from behind the lectern. He has used and abused one naive municipality after another attaching himself to any cause he can to promote himself and his thoroughly radical agenda. His inflated ego is getting the better of him, though, as he brags to extremist supporters how he has manipulated local officials.

DAPL Protesters: Filthy Animal and Environmental Abusers

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

DAPL protesters were not only self-righteous extremists but also a filthy crowd who abused the land, the water and even the animals, not to mention truth.

We’ve covered the lies told by DAPL protesters several times here and we’ve shared the stories of the way they’ve polluted the land and threatened to pollute the water but now there’s more. They’ve even abused the animals they brought with them. They’re one filthy bunch. Why there’s any sympathy at all for them is a profound mystery.

The Shrill Voices and Tantrums of the Fractivist Minority

Natural Gas NOW

… 

A NJ Pinelands Commission’s vote to approve a pipeline that would help replace a coal using power plant reveals the shrill voices of the fractivist minority.

Frank Brill’s EnviroPolitics Blog is a good place to go for a refresher on the tactics of the fractivist minority. His post yesterday on a New Jersey Pinelands Commission vote to approve a short 22-mile South Jersey Gas pipeline provides a window into their world of childish temper tantrums. Frank quotes an AP story on the event, noting “The B.L. England power plant, where the pipeline would end, currently burns coal and oil to generate electricity.” The AP story also reports “Pipeline supporters including construction workers, though greatly outnumbered, chanted “USA! USA!” It’s the imagery he captures, though, that speaks to the astounding arrogance and self-righteousness of the fractivist minority.

The Lesson from DAPL: Fight Back Quickly

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

DAPL is teaching the oil and gas industry something; companies taunted by fractivist games and special interests need to fire a lot of people and get tough.

Marcellus Drilling News does it again. Nobody digs up more facts that others need to know about the oil and gas industry than Jim Willis. A perfect example is the testimony he published Friday from Joey Mahmoud, Energy Transfer Partners’ Project Director for the Dakota Access Pipeline. That testimony documents so much of what others know about DAPL that simply isn’t true. It’s a plain-spoken document and candid; two features one almost never gets out of the corporate public relations and legal world, where rolling over and spitting out bland disingenuous mush are the preferred weapons for defending the industry from those who wish to kill it.

What DAPL Tells Us About Fractivists and Other Frauds

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

DAPL offers an in-depth look into the spoiled child minds of fractivists and other environmental activists who have turned out to be merely fakes and frauds.

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) has shown us precisely who fractivists really are; frauds of the first order. We’ve told story after story here about the whole thing not because it has much to do with natural gas but, rather, because the DAPL opponents are our opponents, too.

What they’re doing in North Dakota is what they want to do everywhere. They latched onto the cause as it provided everything they could hope for; disenfranchised Native Americans being bullied by big oil, a sacred life style being disrupted by a pipeline and threatened water. It was the perfect stage for a fractivist theatrical performance. But, then the audience starting walking out and the actors followed, leaving behind a mess for the supposed victims (for whom they claimed to speak) to clean up. DAPL has told the world what a bunch of frauds fractivists really are.

Recognizing the Extremists Among Us and Their Radical Goals

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

Fractivism, to the extent it is a movement at all, is composed of extremists whose real goals are profoundly radical and dangerous to our civil society.

There is a tendency among us to dismiss those on the lunatic fringe of politics as irrelevant. We assume they’re simply oddballs with strange ideas and give them little more than a raised eyebrow or a whispered chuckle. We ignore them at our peril, though, if history is any indication. Radicals and extremists have enormous influence they exercise by  moving discussions in their direction and making other extremists only slightly less radical look moderate by comparison, steadily defining deviancy down. Such is the case with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund or CELDF, a profoundly extremist group that loves to interject itself into environmental issues. It does so not because it cares a whit about the environment but, rather, sees such issues as a means of dragging others into its revolutionary campaign.

Robin Hood Fractivists Look to Rob Poor to Give to the Rich

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

….
….

Nick Grealy says UK fractivists are alter-ego Robin Hood characters looking to rob the poor to give to the rich – how true it is there (and here in the US).

Like all good insurrections, the opposition to “fracking” in Sherwood Forest risks snowballing and damaging everyone else  unless some facts are allowed to enter the debate.

Facts certainly aren’t intruding into this story from the local paper.  What could  then happen is that, like the original Telegraph story, these “alternative facts” become viral.  A local newspaper reporter, perhaps earning as little as £12 a year,  writes a story essentially dictated to her by Guy Shrubsole of Friends of the Earth. Other reporters worldwide will find it via Google and embellish it for their local story, producing a  digital palimpsest mirroring the medieval tone of the story. Result: anti fracking activists invigorate themselves as participants in a mythic battle.
