Washington County, Pennsylvania is a regional leader in business growth, tourism and job creation, all thanks to the Marcellus Shale and natural gas development.

The Washington County, Pennsylvania website states “No matter what you want to do, you can do it right here. Shop until your heart’s content, or spend your days outdoors. Whether you like history, sports or entertaining, we are ready to share the energy.” They’re correct!

Simply Lying: The Real Story Behind Keep Wayne Wild

Keep Wayne Wild is a phony fractivist outfit with apparent connections to both the extremist CELDF and the Sierra Club. It’s also a for-profit T-shirt outlet.

It takes real gall to be a fractivist. You have to be able always to disguise who you really are. More importantly, you must be equipped with the chutzpah to do so brazenly in spite of the obvious. Our friend Jackie Stewart at Energy In Depth lays out the case for just an outfit. It’s a group called Keep Wayne Wild. Her story of fractivist deceit by this bunch of phony “volunteers” can be found here, but there’s more.

A study by the Consumer Energy Alliance shows Virginian gas users saved some $11 billion over the last decade due to fracking and the shale revolution.

Residents of Virginia have benefited in a major way from an abundance of cheap, clean-burning shale gas. How much benefit? Try $11 billion of money went directly into the pockets of Virginia residents and businesses over the past 10 years thanks to low-priced natural gas–fracked gas, coming from the Marcellus/Utica.

Amazon Corporate Welfare Yet Again Shows Upstate New York Is Invisible

The Amazon corporate welfare deal, engineered by Andrew Cuomo, yet again, shows Upstate New York is invisible to the governor who answers only to NYC voters.

Once again, Upstate New York will feel the pain, the tragedy, of four more years being under the thumb of Andrew Cuomo, perhaps America’s worst governor if you live outside New York City.

State politics are non-existent north of the five boroughs that compose the City of New York.  We just don’t matter in Upstate New York, and the dwindling population is reflective of that knowledge.

US Greenhouse Emissions Lowest Per Capita Since 1950, Thanks to Fracking

environmental extremists.

You won’t find “fracking” in this story but it’s why the US has been able to shift from coal to natural gas with much lower greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. greenhouse gas emissions dropped 2.7 percent from 2016 levels in 2017 with emissions from large power plants falling 4.5 percent. Emissions of carbon dioxide (the largest component of greenhouse gases) on a per-capita basis hit a 67-year low in 2017. U.S. carbon dioxide emissions in 2017 are the lowest since 1992 and per-capita emissions are the lowest since 1950. According to Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, “These achievements flow largely from technological breakthroughs in the private sector, not the heavy hand of government.”

The Delaware Riverkeeper’s trust-funder agenda is on display again in Tinicum Township, Bucks County where the group seeks to ensure a sugar-daddy’s privacy.

R. Bruce Wallace, an artist and grandson of former Vice-President and Progressive Party Presidential candidate Henry A. Wallace. He’s a trust-funder. I wrote about him here last year. He and other family members inherited a big chunk of old Henry’s the socialist’s fortune made through capitalism. These trust-funders also established several foundations to spend some of that fortune on pet causes.

One of these is the Woodtiger Fund, which has over $60 million in assets. Bruce and his wife Susan, who live in Tinicum Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, appear to have given the Delaware Riverkeeper no less than $975,000, and probably much more, to ensure their personal privacy in a fight against public safety.

The Fractivist Trail of Hypocrisy and Double Standards

Fractivists are the worst hypocrites. Most hypocrites have standards they violate. A trip down the fractivist trail, though, shows only double standards.

Wine trails, antique trails and historical trails; there seems to be a trail for everything these days. A combination of websites, maps and trail signs lead us to various attractions in which we might have an interest. Most states have historical marker programs, in fact, to giver us little tidbits of why particular sites have significance. One of our readers also sent me this story about a fractivist trail marker. It was totally fake, but it made us both think about the possibilities of doing something much more real; something that would expose fractivists for who they really are — highest order hypocrites.

US and Poland Ink 24-Year LNG Deal Securing Energy Security

The US and Poland have just signed a 24-year LNG deal that will ensure the latter’s energy security and independence from the big Russian bear to the east.

LNG is completely changing the global energy landscape. The US just made a 24-year deal with Poland to facilitate shipment of LNG to the land of “God, Honor, Fatherland.” That LNG will serve ensure Poland’s independence from an ever hungry Russian bear looking to reestablish dominance over Eastern Europe. This LNG deal is likely to be one of many and we can expect Pennsylvania LNG to find its way to Europe via Cove Point. At least one Cove Point shipment has already gone to the UK, in fact, and at least one ship has left Cheniere’s Sabine Pass export terminal in Louisiana with LNG for Poland. Many more will follow.
