A documentary on the historic Dennis Farm will share the amazing journey of the family who owned and loved this land since just after the American Revolution.

On Thursday, October 5th the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust held its 5th Annual Symposium at Keystone College where Denise Dennis, the President and CEO and the seventh generation of the family, told the amazing story of her family. The farm was originally settled in Susquehanna County by the family of Prince Perkins who were free African Americans moving west from Connecticut to the region.

Coal and Nuclear Subsidy Cram Down Brings Everyone Else Together

Dakota AccessMike Krancer
Principal, Silent Majority Strategies, LLC

 

Proposed Federal coal and nuclear energy subsidies unite everyone else, forging a natural coalition of natural gas and renewables so many try hard to avoid.

Eleven very diverse energy trade groups (the Energy Trade Associations) have weighed in with FERC against the DOE’s nuclear and coal subsidy rule (a/k/a guaranteed profit rule), which DOE calls the “Grid Resiliency Pricing Rule.” The diversity of the group is notable and speaks volumes; it includes renewable energy groups, oil and gas groups, electricity consumers, rural electric cooperatives, and natural gas pipeline interests. Everyone but coal and nuclear groups of course who would be the recipient of the public largesse should the NOPR become law.

DRBC Trying to Steal Pennies from Dead Man’s Eyes?

Wayne County, Pennsylvania, Landowner

….

Make no mistake about it; the DRBC is engaged in a despicable enterprise that’s a lot like stealing pennies from a dead man’s eyes, according to Bob Nolan.

While delivering his Inaugural Address on January 20, 1961, President John F. Kennedy made a very cogent observation regarding a freeman’s rights:

“And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe–the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”

That’s the same John F. Kennedy who, on November 2, 1961, stated:

“Its significance lies in the unique character of the compact and the great hope for comprehensive plans for full and effective development of the Delaware River Valley”.

That second quote was at the White House signing of the Delaware River Basin Compact when the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) was formed, a day of infamy it may be turning out.

Natural Gas Protein: The New “It’s What’s for Dinner” Meal?

Fractivists

….
…. 

A new protein derived from feeding bacteria a methane-laced solution is being used to help feed farm animals and maybe soon, humans. 

Food supplies around the world can sometimes be scarce. Natural resources may not be adequate in some areas with increasing human population or as we are seeing in toleration dictatorships such as North Korea or Venezuela, the scarcity is a combination of situations that lead to the starvation of people.

Good Energy News Doesn’t Depend on Conventional Wisdom

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

….
….

Nick Grealy, ever the realist, bares all in talking of his battles, with a confident optimism in the triumph of good energy news over convention wisdom.

I have been so blessed in so many ways. Life is too short to be wasted on regret, but as Francis Albert Sinatra sang, I’ve had a few of those, and as I start thinking about my legacy, I’ll inevitably address the negative side of that over the next few weeks. I intend to do that filtered via a collaborator who hopefully will curb my worst impulses.

I also hope to use an academic platform and other associates to set out the case, so sadly lacking amongst the “conventional” wisdom of world gas thinking, on the other side of the bet that for some weird reason, UK and European shale will never happen. What if the conventional wisdom is wrong? To me, the story of shale has consistently been to prove almost everyone wrong. But the UK and Europe CW, for complex reasons, still insists that what was correct in 2010 still applies today. That’s quite clearly wrong. Perhaps 2018 will prove the CW wrong in Europe. Apart from anything else, this is a case for  risk mitigation, a key part of due diligence that for mysterious reasons, barely exists.  We’ll see. Or, you will at least.

Dumb and Dumber: Feds Want to Subsidize Coal and Nuclear

Dakota Accessbudget shortfallMike Krancer and Keith Naughton
Principals, Silent Majority Strategies, LLC

 

ALERT: Coal and nuclear energy industries threatened by the economics of natural gas want subsidies from taxpayers, joining renewables advocates and everyone else.

DOE just rolled out a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) with FERC that amounts to requiring subsidies for nuclear plants and coal plants. This would be a sea change in how competitive electricity markets work. Some would say the proposal scraps competitive wholesale electricity markets.

The proposed rule would provide for “accurately pric[ing] generation resources necessary to maintain reliability and resiliency.” There would be “recovery of costs of fuel-secure generation units frequently relied upon to make our grid reliable and resilient.”

UDRBC Formed to Fight for Upper Delaware Citizens

….
…. 

A new landowner group, UDRBC, has been formed to fight back against the DRBC and anyone else threatening the rights of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens.

With the DRBC continuing to encroach upon property owner rights in the Delaware River Watershed, the need for a coalition spanning multiple counties and multiple states has never been greater. Members of the Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) believe this; for the people who actually live and work here, life in the basin is about more than a river. It is also not just landowners looking to lease their land for natural gas exploration who are impacted by the continued efforts of the DRBC to overregulate this region.
