Natural Gas NOW
An aging Hollywood actor who started out playing “Stretch Cunningham” goes fractivist to oppose Wawayanda gas plant but unearths fascinating court decision.
I get so many good tips from readers here at NaturalGasNOW and over the weekend one of them put me onto something rather interesting about the case of another attention-starved aging celebrity by the name of James Cromwell who has gotten himself arrested a couple of times opposing a new natural gas power plant now under construction in Orange County, New York.
This plant has been kicking around for a very long time going back a decade or more when I was involved in doing some work for that community; the Town of Wawayanda. It was controversial then, but finally go approved and is now being built to help supply the local grid with electricity. Cromwell’s wife Anna Stuart owns a house in next door Warwick so he’s decided this is a rather convenient opportunity to burnish his trendy radical credentials and grab some publicity protesting it. Naturally, the media, no doubt tipped off in advance, was right there to join ninth cause and the fun, because, after all, this is how fractivism is done. Buried at the bottom of one of their stories, though, is something much more interesting than seeing the goofy Cromwell in chic lock garb.
