Missing Facts About the Dakota Access Pipeline

Is there no limit to the distortion that goes into public debate about projects such as the Dakota Access Pipeline and oil and gas infrastructure? No.

Jessica Sena’s post provided some much needed background about the Dakota Access Pipeline and it generated a very interesting letter to me from a North Dakotan who is extremely frustrated with the distortion, the one-sided empathetic media coverage and the political correctness that seems to accompany every oil and gas infrastructure project these days.

Eric Schneiderman: New York’s Wild Card

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Eric Schneiderman is a wild card, say his peers. He’s also a wild-eyed true believer who dangerously combines ambition with recklessness.

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is an ambitious, conceited and mean-spirited true believer. He’s in the tradition of his predecessor, the now wholly disgraced Elliot Spitzer. He’s not unlike the just disgraced Attorney General Kathleen Kane of Pennsylvania, either. He has a nasty vindictive attitude, combined with a slavish dedication to the NRDC gang agenda. It makes him one dangerous individual for those who associate with him. His peers, in fact, are running from him already.

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.

Rockefeller Dirty Trickster Bill McKibben Whines

CELDF - report on Mora countyTom Shepstone

Is there anything more pitiful than the criminal who whines about getting caught? Perhaps it’s Bill McKibben whining about tricks he’s played.

Bill McKibben, bought and sold by a Rockefeller family investing in overseas oil and gas, has made a stunning complaint. He has written a piece in the New York Times (where else?) entitled “Embarrassing Photos of Me, Thanks to My Right-Wing Stalkers.” Talk about chutzpah! Bill McKibben has admired, praised and written odes to fractivist stalkers. Now, with a few people on our side having caught him doing other than what he preaches, he’s suddenly concerned about stalking. What a fraud. What a whiny hypocrite. What a predictable fractivist shill this guy is.

The Brazen Lies Being Peddled by the William Penn Foundation

The William Penn Foundation, inextricably linked with the Rockefeller family, is telling some lies about water to further their special interests.

The upper region of the Delaware River basin is threatened. It’s not threatened by development but, rather, by very wealthy special interests peddling outright lies about water quality. These special interests, which include the Haas family (Philadelphia) and the Rockefellers, want to make a wilderness of this region. They’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars to scare people into giving it to them. They’re also targeting natural gas with their scare tactics; it being the one thing that could derail their scheme.

WNBF Protects Fractivist Organizer Walter Hang?

Upstate New York Landowner Shale Gas Activist at NYRAD-R

….
….  

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.

How the NRDC Gang of Thieves Steals Business

State Impact - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

The NRDC gang is a den of thieves who conspire to destroy competition and steal business for their donors, directors and supporters.

Some environmental groups, it appears, are beginning to notice the NRDC gang is not what it’s made out to be, an altruistic group focused on safeguarding the earth; that it’s really a gang of thieves out to steal business for the members. We have, on these pages, relentlessly detailed the background on the NRDC gang, noting how it is running land scams to make a wilderness of the Catskills. We’ve told how its divestment project is really just a case of running interference while Steven Clark Rockefeller, Jr. sends LNG to China. We’ve explained how the gang is intricately linked to the Sea Change Foundation and its sugar-daddy investment banker funder, Nat Simons, who is enmeshed in all sorts of renewable energy investments.

It turns out, though, we are not alone. An excellent post on the Environmental Progress blog, which is focused on addressing “continued dependence on wood & dung in poor countries, and climate change” aggressively goes after the NRDC gang and lays out how the thieves work. It’s not a post that’s friendly to natural gas, but it is superb in documenting the thefts in a very compelling way, one that ought to get the attention of Preet Bharara as he pursues corruption in new York where the NRDC runs everything in state government.

The NRDC Gang: The French Connection

The NRDC gang of Rockefeller aristocrat types is up to its ears in the corruption that is New York these days and now there’s even a French Connection.

Back in November, we laid out how the NRDC gang had created what we later called the La Jolla Junta and hatched a RICO type scheme to go after Exxon, the owner of XTO Energy, which just happens to threaten the very special interests of the gang in making a wilderness of the Catskills.

Then, the gang over-reached, launching a follow-up scheme in coordination with loyal hacks such as New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the nasty ambitious pol and attack tarantula who is happy to do the dirty work harassing everyone from tiny communities such the Town of Sanford in Broome County, New York up to Exxon, barely bothering to disguise the obvious coordination of attacks between his office and the NRDC gang. Now, thanks to Energy In Depth (EID), we’re learning more everyday about the depth of the corruption and a French connection has even been revealed, although it’s not what you’re thinking.

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.

The Strange and Unexpected Friends of Gasland

Gasland II was the beginning of the end of Josh Fox’s meaningful influence on the fracking debate but it sure attracted some strange and unexpected friends .

Everything started going downhill for Josh Fox after Gasland II came out – it was that bad. Fox’s influence has dwindled in inverse proportion to his arrogance and he has, ever since, increased the intensity of his table pounding and made ever more extravagant claims i vain attempts to bring more attention to himself. I’m not sure any of us care that much what he’s up to these days, but his 15 minutes of fame served to help identify some of the enemies of rural development who flocked to him like moths to a streetlight during that period and they are a strange and eclectic bunch, if nothing else.
