Jesse White Dumps on the Poor?

Jesse White - Tom Shepstone reportsTom Shepstone

….   

….

Jesse White, the former PA State Representative driven from office by his own exploits, dumps on the poor to express his contempt for the gas industry. 

The Jesse White story is one so bizarre no one would believe it if it were not true. It’s well known to readers of this blog and not necessary to repeat but the guy keeps delivering, driven by his contempt for a company, Range Resources, and a natural gas industry he once loved; until they rebuffed his request for a free trip to the Superbowl.

Doug Berkley, in technical solutions at Noise Solutions, is a true believer in the natural gas industry and found his passion working in it.

The Marcellus Shale has changed many lives that reside within its borders, whether it’s been a rural farmer hosting gas operations and receiving lease payments and royalties or a start-up business getting off the ground by providing services to the industry. There are examples all across the region of the Marcellus’ effects in scales both large and small. For Doug Berkley, the natural gas industry let him discover his true passion.

Valley View Holds First High School Energy Fair

NEPA Energy - Johnny Williams Johnny Williams

Northeastern Pennsylvania gas companies went to Valley View High School in Lackawanna County to sponsor an energy fair introducing youth to energy careers.

The growth and dedication that has been displayed between the natural gas industry and educational institutions over the years has been staggering. While much of that relationship has been amongst local area colleges, high schools have been becoming closely involved too, as evidenced by the Energy Education Program offered at Valley View High School in Archbald.

PA’s Natural Gas Industry Already Pays Energy Taxes

Pennsylvania gas drillers have already been paying their fair share of energy taxes; any further taxation will cost jobs and hurt local communities.

A recent Times-Tribune editorial (“Regressive taxes to grow,” Nov. 12) misleadingly claims that the natural gas industry is “shielded from fair taxation.” In truth, Pennsylvania’s unique impact fee has provided, and continues to provide, significant and much-needed revenue for communities across the commonwealth, especially here in Wyoming County.

The development of shale gas has also brought millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements in the form of roads, drainage and bridge projects and charitable investments.

Gas Industry Committed to Wildlife Conservation

NEPA Energy - Johnny Williams Johnny Williams

The natural gas industry, along with Energy for Wildlife, sponsored a fundraising event for the National Wild Turkey Federation to continue to preserve and enhance wildlife habitats.

While some view the natural gas industry in northeastern Pennsylvania as a threat to the local environment, other people and organizations take a different approach and embrace the industry, viewing it as an opportunity to enhance the environment and the local habitat and wildlife. Despite the ups and downs of the gas industry, Pennsylvania’s natural resources will always be a huge part of the state. Perhaps Anadarko spokesman Mark Barbier said it best during Oct. 22’s Energy for Wildlife fundraising event:

“Even though our industry is in a lull right now, we need conservation efforts to continue,” he said. “Our industry may change but the wildlife will always be here, and wildlife contributions will go a long way in maintaining the positive relationship with the industry and the environment.”

Energy Education Program Now Offered at Valley View

NEPA Energy - Johnny Williams Johnny Williams
Freelance Journalist

 

Valley View High School is bringing energy to the classroom with its new Energy Education Program, making them the first school in Pennsylvania to offer a course of this kind at the high school level.

Energy as a whole is an ever-evolving and growing aspect of people’s lives. Developing more of it and making it as efficient as possible will be a boon for careers for years to come. It’s a global effort, but in Pennsylvania, natural gas, the state’s fastest growing energy industry, and education have always had a longstanding partnership to develop those careers.

While that partnership has typically been most noticeable among local colleges, this school year at Valley View High School sees a first-of-its-kind collaboration between natural gas and education, as the school and the industry teamed up to create a high school class devoted to energy.

State Impact PA Does Advocacy Journalism (Yet Again)

State Impact - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

State Impact PA is the quintessential purveyor of advocacy journalism, funded by the same elite families who fund the groups for which it carries water.

Advocacy packaged as journalism is the forte of State Impact PA, as we have documented here on several occasions, including this post. The organization is also a sister group to three other William Penn Foundation funded fractivist outfits, as we explained here; the Clean Air Council, the Delaware Riverkeeper and PennFuture.

The cozy relationship among these entities, moreover, is one they don’t even bother to try to hide anymore. They boldly tell the world they’re all in bed together, even though one portrays itself as the nonpartisan reporter of the news. It’s illustrative of the larger problem America faces today as much of the media operates as an activist force, surrendering to the temptation to make the news rather than deliver it, as if it were a badge of honor.

IMG Midstream Discusses The Future of PA Energy

NEPA Energy - Johnny Williams Johnny Williams

IMG Midstream plans to build small-scale electric-generation facilities that will use Marcellus Shale gas and create local jobs.

As part of the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce‘s monthly education luncheon series, the Shadowbrook Inn & Resort hosted IMG Midstream on Wednesday to discuss the company’s power generation plans across northeastern Pennsylvania. Over 50 representatives of local businesses came to hear the presentation.

IMG Midstream is developing several relatively smaller-scale power generation facilities that will utilize Marcellus Shale gas. The advantages, according to IMG Midstream Senior Development Manager Matt Tripoli, include strategically placing the facilities near existing infrastructure as well as supporting local energy and local jobs.

Green Career Day Showcases Opportunities

Local natural gas companies participated in Green Career Day at Mount Pisgah State Park to allow eighth grade students a hands-on approach to explore environmental based careers.

It’s like the tree leaves just changed colors overnight. What was once lush and green is now thinner and a variety of colors across the Pennsylvania hillsides. Nowhere was this illustrated more clearly that at Mt. Pisgah in Bradford County on Wednesday as the state park hosted the tenth annual Green Career Day.

The Dragon Ships Are Coming

Something exciting is happening and it involves dragon ships that will transport Marcellus Shale gas to European markets as an alternative to Russian gas.

Range Resources and INEOS have partnered to export Ethane from Marcellus Shale across the Atlantic Ocean, to European Countries, via ship. At 2:43 in the video following they show the Markwest cracker plant, here in Houston, Pennsylvania (Washington County), where they will be supplying Ethane for this. The Ethane is being shipped via the Mariner East I Pipeline, which recently opened, to the Marcus Hook facility in Philadelphia, where “dragon ships” will be loaded for transport to Europe.
