The Ugly Truth Behind Truthout, the CELDF and Grant Township

… 

The truth behind the Grant Township injection well controversy is ugly. The parties taking advantage of the Township are totalitarian wannabes out for power.

We previously reported on the story of two Pennsylvania townships that were either hoodwinked, or perhaps willing led astray, by the radical Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) into passing (now overturned) bans on fracking and injection wells in their towns; Highland Township (Elk County) and Grant Township (Indiana County). The CELDF continues to agitate against the Indiana Township injection well hoping to producer anarchy.

What Shale Drilling Has Done for World Peace and Security

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

Shale drilling, whether for oil or gas, has made a huge contribution to world peace and security and it’s time we all recognized it and operated accordingly.

The importance of shale to world peace and security never was more in evidence than during the last two weeks.  The fact that very few people know about it underscores why.

Is Tom Wolf Just Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Bobblehead?

Radical billionaire Tom Steyer threw money at Tom Wolf’s campaign for Pennsylvania Governor. Is he now treating the governor as his personal bobblehead?

Ever since Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania’s trust-funder governor, suddenly decided to pursue a fracking ban within the jurisdiction of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) I’ve wondered why. It makes no sense whatsoever, as the governing majority of the DRBC (Pennsylvania, New York and the Feds) is exactly the same as it is for the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) where fracking has long been permitted. Both rivers are sources of drinking water and SRBC stream quality has been unaffected, So, why would Wolf suddenly decide to treat DRBC region residents as second-class citizens?

Well, there may be an answer by the name of Tom Steyer. The evidence, to be sure, is circumstantial, but the connections are just a little too coincidental for comfort.

Conservancies Are for Conservation, Not Politics

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is doing politics in opposing fracking, not conservation, and it has its facts all wrong, thanks to New York’s Tony Ingraffea.

Is the Conservancy of Southwest Florida a real conservation entity or is it a political advocacy organization with only an environmental agenda? The consensus view of conservationism is that it should be a collaborative effort to ensure the economic, environmental preservation and safety of the community. Such an organization works with business, scientific, and political leaders to achieve these ends. 

Therefore, the developer, the corporate community and the local government should not be viewed as the enemy. There should be open dialogue about the agenda and all sides of the issues should be represented. Conservancy members should get a balanced exposure to the issues and the agenda should not be set by partisan politics.

Natural Gas Substitution for Coal Keeps Reducing Emissions

Natural gas substitution for coal in electric power generation has consistently reduced carbon emissions on that score, making it the best of all tools.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) keep count and the score on carbon emissions from electric power generation just keeps getting better. Why? Because natural gas substitution for coal in the electric power sector is sill taking place, reducing emissions associated with coal. EIA, in fact, tells us “Total energy-related CO2 emissions fell in 2016 and are projected to fall in 2017 and rise in 2018, based on EIA’s latest Short-Term Energy Outlook projection.”

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about CNG, the Atlantic Sunrise, Chesapeake production and much more last week.

The Shale Gas News has grown to THREE stations! We are now broadcasting with YesFM. YesFM will be airing the full 60 minute version of the program on Sunday mornings. YesFM broadcasts primarily in Sullivan and Bradford counties, with some ancillary coverage in neighboring counties and even over the border into New York.

Every Saturday Rusty Fender and I host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas. This week we replayed an interview with Scott Bush, VP, Industrial & Facilities Business Unit Leader at Borton-Lawson from this past January, and an interview with Representative Stephen Bloom of the 199th District from this past February.

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.

Natural Gas NOW readers pass along a lot of stuff every week about natural gas, fractivist antics, emissions, renewables, and other news relating to energy.

This week I decided to clean out my e-mail box of great material sent along by Natural Gas NOW readers. It covers a lot of territory and some of it’s not that new anymore but it’s all great stuff highlighting the power of natural gas and the absurdity of fractivism. Check out the links below

Job-Killing Sierra Club Killed in Court, Atlantic Sunrise Proceeds

The job-killing Sierra Club and other gentry class shills who stopped the Atlantic Sunrise construction for a moment have themselves been killed in court.

When the DC Court of Appeals issued a stay the other day that put 2,500 Atlantic Sunrise workers out of jobs, it seemed a bit strange. The DC Court has not been particularly friendly toward the attempts of the Sierra Club and other gentry class fractivist shills to overrule FERC with rehearsing requests and the like, although it’s made some weird decisions in other respects.

The latest delay maneuver pulled in the Atlantic Sunrise was frivolous on its face, after all. But, the Court inexplicably issued the stay anyway so, it said, to have time to review the matter. Now, faster than a speeding bullet, it has dissolved the stay.  The Williams motion to dismiss was particularly effective, it seems, and there may be a reason why

Here’s How to Lift Up Puerto Rico with Our Natural Gas

The devastation that hit Puerto Rico is an opportunity to build a new energy future for the Commonwealth with our natural gas, helping us at the same time.

There was a Congressional hearing the other day focused on the efforts to help Puerto Rico recover from the recent hurricane damage that so devastated the island. Something very interesting came out of the discussion that could be the basis of some great initiatives of benefit to just about everyone. It’s all about LNG and how shipping the stuff produced on the mainland could be a big boon to our fellow Americans from the Island of Enchantment as well as those who live in our rural areas where shale gas is produced.
