Delaware Riverkeeper Asks DRBC to Stop Mariner East; Will It Regret It?

The Delaware Riverkeeper is forcing an issue with respect to DRBC authority and may (one hopes) come to regret it as others are forced to challenge both.

Here’s the latest strategy in THE Delaware Riverkeeper’s ongoing war against fossil fuels, and against natural gas pipelines in particular: Pressure the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to revoke a permit granted by the agency to the Mariner East 2 (ME2) pipeline project on the flimsy basis that ME2 has “violated” the conditions of the permit. Frankly, we didn’t even know the DRBC had issued a permit for ME2. After all, ME2 is a state-permitted project and does not come under federal authority.

Serial protesters operating under multiple names are behind an utterly despicable environmental racism protest against a natural gas power plant SEPTA plans.

Bet you didn’t know that the environment has become racist. That’s the outrageous claim being made about Nicetown, PA (near Philadelphia). Big Green supporters in Nicetown are opposed to SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) plans to build a Marcellus gas-powered electric plant that would provide electricity to SEPTA’s northern Regional Rail lines and a bus garage. The stated reason for their opposition is because the plant will burn an evil, nasty, vile “fossil fuel.”

House Committee Told It’s All About Equity, Fairness and Justice Missing at DRBC

UDRBC Secretary

 

Betty Sutliff, retired public school teacher, UDRBC secretary and former NWPOA officer, had a message for the DRBC yesterday; it’s all about the justice.

Good morning, Chairman Metcalfe and members of the State House Government Committee.  My name is Betty Sutliff and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to speak today.  

I would like to address the double standard that exists between the Delaware River Basin and the Susquehanna River Basin in Pennsylvania with regard to the extraction of natural gas and the injustice of that double standard.  As a retired teacher, my first step in preparing for today, of course, was to consult Merriam-Webster and others with my sights focused on the words “unjust” and “injustice.”

Holistic Fracking Is Here and It’s A Nightmare for Fractivists

natural gas now - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Holistic fracking, oil and gas well stimulation using a fracking gel made from ingredients available at your local grocery story, is already here.

A couple of decades ago, the term “holistic” became very trendy. We heard a lot about things such as “holistic medicine” and “whole farming,” both of which emphasized treating the whole rather than the parts. It seems somewhat less in vogue today, now doubt due to overuse, but the idea, which certainly has some validity, persists. We’re now seeing something similar, in fact, with hydraulic fracturing. The mechanism for delivering proppants to keep rock fractures open to flow gas is becoming ever more benign, more holistic. Holistic fracking is here.
