Local energy companies and Junior Achievement team up to offer area educators a fun day of STEM training with activities to take back to the classroom.

On Oct. 5, Cabot Oil & Gas, UGI Energy Services and Williams collaborated to acquaint teachers and administrators in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties with the educational components needed for employment in the natural gas industry via the Oilfield Education Center (OEC). The program conducted at Pittston Area High School attracted around 100 educators representing approximately 30 different schools.

Wind Farms Cause Global Warming? Please, Say It Isn’t So

environmental extremists.

Could wind farms cause global warming, possibly even more than fossil fuels? A new Harvard University study suggests they could.

Harvard University study suggests that, under certain conditions and in the near term, increased wind power could mean more climate warming than would be caused by the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity. The study found that if wind power supplied all U.S. electricity demands, it would warm the surface of the continental United States by 0.24 ˚C, which could significantly exceed the reduction in U.S. warming achieved by decarbonizing the nation’s electricity sector this century—around 0.1 ˚C. The warming effect depends strongly on local weather conditions, as well as the type and placement of the wind turbines.

… 

Rural patients in the Endless Mountains, thanks to natural gas development, now have better access to health care and, overall, an improved quality of life.

As a life-long resident of Susquehanna County and CEO of Endless Mountains Health Systems (EMHS), Loren Stone has seen primary care and critical access in his community all but disappear. Fortunately, he has seen it come back to a level almost unimaginable a decade ago. The story he tells quietly debunks the assertions of critics who assume that the natural gas industry brings with it the perils of poor health. To the contrary, Stone maintains, Susquehanna County is in a much healthier position now than ever before.

Local energy companies contribute close to $30,000 to firefighter training center which will help prepare the community’s first responders.

In August, energy companies collectively contributed about $30,000 toward an addition to a firefighter training center in southern Schuylkill County during the 64th annual Schuylkill County Volunteer Firefighters Association Convention. The widely-used facility is 30 years old and sits on 26 acres near Frackville, and the generous donation provides an opportunity to address new circumstances and safety concerns brought to the region by the natural gas industry.

… 

Tunkhannock is getting natural gas service and stepping into the second phase of its future; a future built on sustainable natural gas development.

Ground was ceremoniously broken on Oct. 16 for the first phase of a public natural gas service project in Tunkhannock. UGI Utilities is overseeing the project, which will begin with the simultaneous construction of a gate station in Tunkhannock Township to tap a Williams line and the installation of a trunk into the borough of Tunkhannock. The initiative is indicative of efforts to expand gas service in the region, including more communities in Susquehanna County.

Insane Colorado Anti-Fracking Proposal Would Gut State Economy

Colorado Anti-FrackingDavid Wojick, PhD
Independent Analyst

 …

Will Colorado voters, residents of a state with a huge oil and gas industry benefiting them in innumerable ways, choose to gut their own state economy?

The anti-fracking folks are trying a clever new strategy in Colorado. Instead of banning fracking, they just make it impossible. In fact, they make nearly all oil and gas development and production impossible – which is exactly what radical “leave it in the ground” eco factions demand.

However, the Colorado focus seems to be fracking (horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing) because, being new, it is the scariest. And people sure are being scared.

Atlantic Coast Pipeline Gets Water Quality Certification from Virginia!

Virginia, contrary to Andrew Cuomo’s New York, once again simply follows the law in approving a water quality certification for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

Although the 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) was federally approved a year ago, in October, 2017, the $6 billion pipeline from Dominion Energy running from West Virginia through Virginia into North Carolina had not yet secured all state-required permits. The remaining holdout has been Virginia. Late Friday afternoon the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) finally issued a “401” permit (water quality certification), which clears the way for ACP construction to begin in the Old Dominion.

Pennsylvania Gas A Critical Bulwark in Securing Energy Security

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Flaster Greenberg PC

 

Pennsylvania gas will become even more critical than it already is, if international tensions over Saudi behavior disrupt the foreign energy supply. 

Just six months after the Chinese Communist leadership massacred hundreds of their own people at Tiananmen Square in 1989, President George H. W. Bush sent his envoy Brent Scowcroft on a secret mission.  When pictures of National Security Advisor Scowcroft raising glasses for a champagne toast with the Butchers of Beijing leaked out, Americans were outraged.  However, Bush and Scowcroft realized that the Chinese relationship was too important and that the Communist leaders weren’t going anywhere.
