It isn’t just us saying it; Penn State University has also noticed greenhouse gases are declining as natural gas production is increasing significantly.

Earlier this month I wrote a piece here noting the EPA data shows greenhouse gases are dropping in the Marcellus and Utica regions even as natural gas production grows. Now, Penn State University, my alma mater, says the same thing.

Fake Fractivist News from Reuters Puts the Lie to “Freedom from Bias”

Reuters says “freedom from bias.. shall at all times be fully preserved” but the news service’s reporting of fake fractivist news says just the opposite.

A news story out today from Reuters illustrate just how much fake fractivist news there is out there and how incredible stealthily it’s done. Titled simply as “U.S. Justice pledges to prosecute activists who damage pipelines,” it sounds innocuous enough but a close reading indicates its anything but that. It’s biased to the very core.

Fracking Is Killing Greenhouse Gas Emissions with Technology

The EPA is out with its latest greenhouse gas emissions from onshore petroleum and natural gas production data, showing emissions are way down. Thank fracking.

The EPA has a neat website tracking greenhouse gas emissions from onshore petroleum and natural gas production. The data shows they’re way down over the last five years in the Marcellus/Utica Shale region even though production is up and more data is being reported. Given that we know the substitution of natural gas for coal power generation has already reduced greenhouse gas emissions enormously, leaving the US with a superior record compared to other braggart non-performing nations such as Germany, this is remarkable. More winning is ahead.

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.
