Big Green Pipeline Demagogues Act Up Against Mariner East 2

… 

Food & Water Watch and other Big Green groups, who are more red than green, acted up in Harrisburg this week in opposition to the Mariner East 2 Pipeline.

A group of anti-fossil/anti-pipeline radicals held a rally Wednesday to spread lies and innuendo about the safety of pipelines in general, with a focus on stopping construction of the Mariner East 2 pipeline project in particular. Supposedly 150 people turned up (including Democrat lawmakers) to bash pipeline projects in the Keystone State. What mainstream media reports don’t tell you is that it was a staged event, organized by the loathsome Food & Water Watch – a Big Green group that lobbies against all fossil fuel projects.

Andrew Cuomo: The Greatest Disaster to Ever Befall Upstate NY

….
….  

Andrew Cuomo has, in seven years, done more to harm Upstate New York than anyone. He is, in fact, the greatest disaster to ever befall Upstate New York.

It is quite sad, what’s going on here in New York. I’m talking about what our corrupt Governor Andrew Cuomo’s target of 50 percent “clean energy” by 2030. Have you ever noticed politicians always set target dates that can’t be reached until long after they will be out of office? It’s campaign talk followed by supposedly bold actions that signal good intentions. However, nothing good is coming from Cuomo’s actions.

A friend of mine I met in the New York Gas Wars saw his farm go up on the auction block, recentlym losing the family farm. His only misfortune other then living in the most unfree state in the country was his farm wasn’t located in trendy wine country (where they also have gas wells). My friend simply produced meat for the hungry, milk for the thirsty and vegetables for your health. I won’t mention his family name because losing your family’s property is very personal and devastating.

Why? We all ask ourselves this. Who is next?

The Rolling Blackouts of NIMBY Minds on Pipelines

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

Threats of rolling blackouts are meaningless to fractivists and NIMBYs who imagine electricity appears magically without need of natural gas or pipelines.

It has seemed to us, anecdotally at least, that most of the media in Virginia has tilted left and anti-pipeline when covering stories about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) projects, both slated to cross the state. So imagine our surprise in reading an editorial from the editors of the Fredericksburg, VA Free Lance-Star that gives full-throated support for fracked shale gas pipelines.

Vic Furman writes an open letter to the Town of Fenton Planning Board in Broome County, New York in support of the NG Advantage natural gas terminal project.

Dear Planning Board Members;

You have made the correct decision in permitting NG Advantage to establish a natural gas transfer station on a service road already zoned industrial by the Town of Fenton. Stick to it!

NG Advantage Meeting in Fenton Goes Well; Were Minds Changed?

….
….  

Vic Furman reports on the meeting last night in the Town of Fenton regarding the NG Advantage proposal. It went well. Could some minds have been changed?

Tonight was another night where two sides met in a forum opposing each others opinion on a proposed NG Advantage transfer station. Enrico (“Rico”) Biasetti, the CEO from NG Advantage, gave a great presentation to the audience, who mostly sat quiet and listened. It was very informational and helped dispel many of the myths being spun by antis.

The Deceitful Foundation of the DAPL Protests

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

Grounded in Fact helps to dispel the deceitful actions which took place at DAPL protests and lies from anti-pipeline activists that led to a lawsuit.

The five claims that make up the foundation of last year’s Dakota Access pipeline protests are falsehoods. Not “that’s just their opinion” falsehoods; these claims are patently and demonstrably untrue. Yet they continue to thrive in the fertilizer-rich environment of the Internet.

Help Us Repel the Fractivist Invaders and Support NG Advantage!

….
….  

Vic Furman makes an impassioned plea for support of the NG Advantage natural gas transfer facility in the Town of Fenton. Help repel the fractivist invaders!

The Town of Fenton, New York Planning Board will need to see our pro-gas support on Tuesday, September 26 at 6:30 pm. We need to support the Town’s previous decision approving the NG Advantage proposal to establish a natural gas transfer facility there. Given the recent Millennium Pipeline win, with judgment going against Andrew Cuomo’s delay tactics on pipeline water quality certifications, there is another victory to be had in showing NG Advantage community support at this meeting.

The Real Climate Change Deniers Are the Fractivists

Although fractivists are fond of labeling those of us who advocate for natural gas as climate change deniers, the real deniers are those who pretend natural gas can’t help.

There were some rather amazing comments on this blog the other day. They reveal the degree to which fractivists who love labeling us as climate change deniers will go to deny the contribution of natural gas in reducing emissions. It’s stunning, in fact, how far these real climate change deniers will go in ignoring the fundamental facts and rules of logic in defending what is clearly ideology, not science, in their own heads.

Land Grabbers Threaten Our Most Precious Rights

….
….  

Vic Furman talks about the land grabbers behind the recent DRBC resolution to consider a fracking ban, their motives and his own plans to resist it all.

What’s on my mind today? Facebook asks this of me every day. Let me answer—as bluntly as I possibly can. The recent DRBC vote was disgusting culmination of a disgusting process underway in this country as land grabbers threaten not only to take our land but also our every right.

Why Some Media Organizations Are Fractivist Sympathizers

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

A recent editorial in the Scranton Times explains why so many media organizations are so sympathetic to fractivism; they’re gentry class NIMBYs themselves.

Our regular commenter, Karen Orlando, has, for many months, like a voice in the wilderness of New York City, been articulating perhaps the greatest problem facing those of us who believe in natural gas. It is the gigantic failure of media organizations to cover what’s really behind most of fractivism or even relate the most salient facts. Here’s some of what she offered recently:

Without incompetent media and the politicians, the [fractivist] movement would have been a failure years ago…

While many people [have] talked about echochambers, media bias and people living in bubbles, I never would have believed it would be impossible to get the … press to cover what is happening with this movement and tell the truth about it. Unfortunately. I have found that one cannot get reporters to use facts in their reporting [or] make corrections … It’s a sad say for the country indeed. The press can no longer discern what reality and facts are.

There are many explanations for this, of course. Reporters have political views and most of them run in one direction. Journalism teach more activism than writing these days. Rabble-rousing always makes a great story. There is another reason, though, and I suspect it is one of the most powerful; media organizations are typically owned by a gentry class opposed to development anywhere near their favorite second-homes and vacation areas.
