What Two-Faced Trust-Funder Tom Wolf (and Others) Said Then

Betty Sutliff quotes Gov. Tom Wolf on natural gas development from when he wasn’t acting as a DRBC member and was actually representing Pennsylvanians.

Politicians such as Governor Tom Wolf have a habit of saying the darnedest things, especially where it comes to natural gas development but it seems to matter a lot who they’re addressing.

In this post I am choosing to let the politicians speak for themselves and readers can compare their statements then with what they’re saying now about natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin.

….
…. 

The Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens or UDRBC has called out the DRBC fracking ban as unfair, a theft of property rights, overreach and discrimination.

The proposed ban on natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin by the DRBC is a travesty.  It can be summed up as unfair politics, theft of property rights, overreach with respect to the DRBC Compact, and discrimination across county lines.

American Shale Revolution Enhances Women’s Rights

The American Shale Revolution has brought more than energy independence, it also brought hope and empowerment to women around the world.

Ever since Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, one powerful man after another has faced differing types of allegations.  Lewis CK, Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey, Al Franken and many others either lost their careers or had their lives perpetually altered.  Many more are sure to come.

I have no doubt that sexual harassment is as prevalent in the energy industry as anywhere else.  Given the male-dominated historical culture of the industry, how could it be otherwise?  However, one of the industry’s greatest assets is the strength of its women, who are as impressive a group as any I’ve met anywhere.

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.

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.
