Counterattack! Willing Workers vs. Job Killers

 ….

“Gas Free Seneca,” “We Are Seneca Lake” and “Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association” are job killers!  But, labor unions are now fighting back – they want jobs!

Crestwood has recently proposed to remove the butane-storage portion of its proposed LPG-Storage Project.  Four jobs that should already have been in Schuyler County have just evaporated due to the Gas Free Senecans’ antagonism directed toward Crestwood and its job-creating LPG-Storage proposal.  Crestwood’s new cut-down proposal takes away what would have been four butane loading and unloading jobs.  It is a small but stinging loss for Schuyler County. Still, something very good is happening; the good guys are fighting back against the job killers!

The Center for Health, Environment and Justice Isn’t

 ….

….

The Center for Health, Environment and Justice illustrates all that is wrong with much of fractivism. It’s ego on steroids, financed by special interests.

A reader forwarded me an e-mail he received the other day from a group known as the the Center for Health, Environment and Justice. It offered “a free training call with Protect Our Children on how to raise awareness of the risks to our kids’ health from fracking.” It provides no evidence of any harm, of course, but promises information on “how to organize and raise awareness about the potential harm to our kids of fracking.” It’s an appeal to emotion, in other words – another phony plea on behalf of “the children.” This is the sort of tactic always employed by community organizers and demagogues. The Center for Health, Environment and Justice plays both roles and does little for the children.

WNBF Protects Fractivist Organizer Walter Hang?

….
….  

Walter Hang is a paid fractivist organizer for the Park and Rockefeller families – New York’s gentry class – and he’s being protected by the press.

Walter Hang is fractivist shill for some very rich people who want to starve Upstate New York out of existence. They not only don’t want any fracking; they’re against even bringing natural gas to the region. They want to stop pipelines. They are using Walter Hang to manipulate public opinion and co-op our legislators. The press, meanwhile, protects him.

The Rockefeller Family Special Interests Behind the RICO Scam

Rockefeller family special interests have been at the core of fractivism, the divestment movement and so much else that is wrong with our energy policy.

It is now clear the RICO scam that has engulfed numerous academics and several attorneys general was instigated by the Rockefeller family. They manipulated everyone into going after Exxon, which was a scheme just a little too perfectly poetic to pull off without getting caught. The lure of the whole ginned up story was that the connections between the family and the promotion of the “Exxon knew” theme, a matter that might normally be expected to raise eyebrows and questions, was submerged in the irony of the situation. What reporter would ask why the family was so involved, when they could write headlines about the irony of Rockefellers challenging big oil and ExxonMobil, in particular, it being the  descendant of Standard Oil?

As it turned out, though, it was too cute by half and it’s now all coming out drip by drip as Energy In Depth and others are pulling back the curtain and revealing the wizards behind the whole scam. What’s still missing, though, is the explanation of exactly what those Rockefeller family special interests really are.

We Are Seneca Lake: Recruiter of Useful Idiots

 ….

The ongoing saga of “The Locals” versus “The Ithacans” as arrest data-analysis reveals much about arrestees, and tells us why ‘We Are Seneca Lake” is no more than a recruiter of new useful idiots.

As any student of culture can attest, there is far more than 20 miles distance and a few hills and dales that separate the Village of Watkins Glen from its eastern neighbor at Ithaca, New York. The cultural gulf that separates those who people the two areas is an insurmountable chasm. The east shore of Seneca Lake is a clear demarcation line.

Put most simply from my own cultural observations, it is “folks who work, do business, and mind their own business” that inhabit the western side of this chasm, and I will designate them herein as “The Locals.”

Bill McKibben and Trial Lawyer Friends Flirt with Violence

….
….

There may be no bigger phony among fractivists than Bill McKibben, who continues to flirt with extremists and violence aided by his trial lawyer friends.

Bill McKibben loves white sheet cowards who flirt with violence, while extolling non-violent “direct action” and “rebellion,” a fact we noted in an earlier post. Rockefeller front groups such as 350.org and the Sustainable Markets Foundation, where trial lawyer and Fractivist Rasputin Jay Halfon fund the dirty work through the back door. As we noted at the time, they “fire up the true believers with the fervor of religious environmentalism and then pat them on the back from a distance for jobs well done.” Now, Bill McKibben is at it again, rewarding a group known as “Beyond Extreme Energy” with his tweet of approval for what is the work of a clearly extremist group.

Fracking Is Here To Stay – Get Over It!

….
….

The Colorado Supreme Court just embraced the rule of law, rejecting the fear mongering of fracking opponents. It’s now time for fractivists to get over it.

On Monday, May 2 the Colorado Supreme Court ruled on what the New York Times (NYT) called: “a lengthy battle for energy production.” The court’s unanimous decision to strike down two cities’ limits on fracking is a victory for oil-and-gas companies and a “disappointment” to anti-fossil-fuel activists. Several states, including Colorado’s neighbors, New Mexico and Texas, have faced similar anti-oil-and-gas initiatives that have also been shot down. It’s time for fractivists to accept fracking is here to stay and to just get over it.

The Lobbying Lie That Just Won’t Go Away

Fracking Lobby Sham - Tom Shepstone reportsTom Shepstone

…  

There’s a big lie that just won’t go away. It’s the lobbying lie perpetrated by fractivists funded by elitist special interest groups with political agendas.

There’s no bigger lie than the lobbying lie repeatedly told by fractivist outfits who spend vastly more themselves under the cover of being non-profit charities. I wrote about this a while back, noting how the Park Foundation, in particular, regularly funded Common Cause to issue reports that spread the lobbying lie and, now, they’re at it again with a report from the “Public Accountability Initiative” funded by Park. The lobbying lie just won’t go away.

More Junk Science: The Duke Housing Study

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Duke University, one of the Park Foundation’s pets, has dutifully come out with another study attacking fracking; this time it’s a Duke housing study.

Once or twice a year anti-fossil fuel “researchers” at Duke University issue another “publish or perish” term paper taking aim at the Marcellus/Utica Shale and call it a study. A few weeks ago the latest in a string of such biased reports was issued by Duke – this one claiming property values go down when Marcellus Shale drilling comes to a community. The Duke housing study is just one more example of how news is manufactured for use in the fractivist echo chamber created by the Park Foundation and friends.

NY Fractivists Block Seneca Lake Facility

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

A group of NY Fractivists dressed up as Santa and the Grinch and danced around to block the Seneca Lake Facility claiming fossil fuels are “naughty.”

We’ve written many stories over the past few years about anti-drilling zealots who oppose the plan to convert a depleted salt cavern owned by Crestwood Equity Partners (nee Crestwood Midstream) along the shore of Seneca Lake, in Schuyler County, NY, to store liquefied petroleum gas (i.e. propane).

The protests are typically a dozen people or less and often organized by Sandra Steingraber, a minor celebrity in fractivist circles. Steingraber is a so-called “scholar in residence” at Ithaca College. They pay her to do nothing but trot around making anti-fracking speeches, no doubt funded with money from the Park Foundation.
