There have been a number of big green and fractivist stories out there in the digital universe this past week. Here are three of my special favorites.

Some weeks there is just so much to take in and analyze when it comes to big green and fractivist issues, we simply can do them justice. Therefore, from time too time, I’ve decided  I’ll share a few of the best with the briefest of commentary and introduction.

Fractivist Antics on Mariner East 2 Are Divine Comedy

The Mariner East 2 pipeline project has produced some utterly mad stuff that can only be described as a modern day Divine Comedy; an inferno of absurdity.

More than 700 years ago Dante Alighieri authored his “Divine Comedy,” a three part narrative poem taking the reader through the various levels of Hell (the “Inferno”), Purgatory and Paradise. It’s the classic of classics and well worth reading for the philosophically inclined. Its insights as to human nature are timeless and they immediately came to mind today when someone sent me a Facebook post about my good friend Joe Massaro.

I helped hire and train Joe for Energy In Depth when we both worked on the EID Marcellus team. He now does a lot of work for The Bravo Group, among whose clients is the Mariner East 2 Pipeline, which brings us to the latest fractivist absurdity and a revealing looks inside the slow-motion collapse of fractivism as a movement; much of which is reminiscent of certain parts of the “Inferno.

Clean Air Council (Haas & Heinz Families) Harass Mariner East 2

… 

The Mariner East 2 Pipeline is the target of an harassing lawsuit intended to simply delay completion. It is being financed by the Haas and Heinz families.

Back in May, six anti-pipeline residents living near where the Mariner East 2 pipeline will pass asked the Middletown (Delaware County, Pennsylvania) town council to reject the path of the pipeline near their property because it would, supposedly, pass closer than town code allows. The town council told the residents they’re out of luck—the town will not pursue any action to block Mariner East 2. Period. But, that wasn’t the end of it, as Mariner East 2 is being harassed with an irrational lawsuit paid for by the Clean Air Council and the elite foundations who fund it.

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.

….
….  

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.
