London Local Energy Tells Mayor A Fracking Ban Is Silly

Nick Grealy, CEO of London Local Energy, shares a letter he wrote to Mayor Sadiq Khan quashing his reasons to ban fracking in London.

People have asked whether this story concerns me:

Sadiq Khan will in effect ban fracking in London – and warns that extracting shale gas represents a toxic health risk.

In a controversial move, the London mayor will set out in plans to be published this week that councils across the capital should block the exploration, appraisal or production of shale gas via hydraulic fracturing, which sees rocks blasted with water to release the gas.

Media Reporting of Crestwood Victory Reveals Deep Bias

Binghamton Press reporting of a major Crestwood victory in September regarding its proposed Seneca Lake LPG storage facility speaks volumes on press bias.

Local media here in Broome County has helped drive our region into poverty with biased articles by the likes of Tom Wilber in particular, who incessantly writes about natural gas issues and glowingly features “activists” who are against anything having to do with fossil fuels. Meanwhile, he totally ignores the cost in human suffering by landowners and others whose lives would be far off better financially had we been given the chance to extract our Marcellus Shale natural gas.

Florida Legislators Think Oil and Sunshine Don’t Mix

Florida legislators resist the economic oil boom and debate a fracking ban in their state believing that oil and sunshine don’t mix.

A recent commentary in the local press of Southwest Florida, suggested renewable energy is the future, but the author reluctantly resigned himself to the fact oil is the preferred energy source for now.

We may add that “now,” based on the pace of progress made in renewables such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels, may well be the next century. The oil and gas industry has made great strides in finding, producing, and transporting hydrocarbons which has further extended the life and lowered the cost of these energy sources.

What Shale Drilling Has Done for World Peace and Security

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.

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.

UDRBC Formed to Fight for Upper Delaware Citizens

….
…. 

A new landowner group, UDRBC, has been formed to fight back against the DRBC and anyone else threatening the rights of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens.

With the DRBC continuing to encroach upon property owner rights in the Delaware River Watershed, the need for a coalition spanning multiple counties and multiple states has never been greater. Members of the Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) believe this; for the people who actually live and work here, life in the basin is about more than a river. It is also not just landowners looking to lease their land for natural gas exploration who are impacted by the continued efforts of the DRBC to overregulate this region.

Let’s Call the Impact Fee by Its Real Name: Severance Tax

Representative John Maher wants to set the record straight on the Pennsylvania impact fee; “it always was and now is a severance tax.”

With a simple amendment Rep. John Maher, Chairman of the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee (Pennsylvania), injected a much-needed dose of honesty into state government. Maher’s amendment changed the name of the “Impact Fee” levied on fracked natural gas to “Severance Tax,” which is what that tax should have been called from Day One.

Betty Sutliff writes a letter to Gov. Tom Wolf reminding him of a landowners meeting held with the Governor and how far he’s strayed from what he told them.

Re:  DRBC Plans to Ban Fracking

Dear Governor Wolf:

On February 2, 2015, I mailed a letter to you regarding statements you made in your inaugural address.  Wanting to hold your feet to the fire, I challenged you to a meeting with the Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance executive team and the Wayne County Commissioners.  With Senator Lisa Baker also in attendance, we met with you on June 8th.  A follow up thank you letter, including a summary of the three key points discussed at the meeting, was sent to you on June 11th. The following shows a comparison of excerpts of my initial letter, including quotes from your inaugural address, and the key points in the summary of our meeting.

Delaware River Fractivists Should Be Afraid, Very Afraid

cost of renewables - Tom ShepstoneTom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

… 

The Delaware Riverkeeper/Povertykeeper and other Delaware River fractivists are apparently very afraid the DRBC moratorium will be lifted and rightly so.

Our friends over at Energy In Depth have nailed it with their observations about the effects of a DRBC lawsuit. Delaware River fractivists of all stripes have every reason to be afraid, Seth Whitehead says, and he’s exactly correct. They’re showing their fear with one of those bogus petition efforts in which they engage from time to time whenever they want to rattle their swords.

Another Dimock ATSDR Study? You’ve Got to be Kidding!

… 

It’s back! There is another Dimock ATSDR study underway, proving how easy it is for fractivists to manipulate government into the ridiculous and the corrupt.

How many times will they get away with it? There’s now yet another Dimock ATSDR study of water wells taking place at the request of fractivists. Readers of this blog will recall this follows another Dimock ATSDR study conducted in 2012, when the EPA came to town to test wells and had the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) analyze the results.

That study was instigated by Josh Fox and now forgotten people such as Craig Sautner who bombarded the EPA with complaints until they relented and did a study proving just how ridiculous the fractivist claims really were, at which point Sautner went apoplectic, turned on the agency and self-destructed in an epic blazing flameout. (Must watch video here.)

Now, it’s “déjà vu all over again.”
