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.

Pennsylvania Auditor General Gives DRBC A Whitewash

Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale just released audits of the SRBC and DRBC, giving the latter a total white wash and ignoring the real issues.

The Pennsylvania Auditor General just released his audits of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) and Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC). The former uncovered some sloppy spending habits and a few other things but the DRBC audit was a joke, a total whitewash of the agency, even promoting the idea the Commonwealth should paying more than it has in recent years to support this corrupt agency. The citizenry of the watershed deserved better.

Colorado Fracking Votes Uphold Property Rights

Two interesting Colorado fracking votes indicate support for property rights and opposition to extremist regulations that amount to regulatory takings.

Yesterday’s election produced some rather remarkable votes regarding Colorado fracking. The state is a significant oil and gas producer. Fractivists, though, were able to get an initiative placed on the ballot called Proposition 112 that would have gutted the industry by requiring 2,500 feet setbacks for Colorado fracking. Farm Bureau and others responded with a proposed Colorado Constitution amendment requiring compensation to landowners for regulatory takings. The former was defeated by a wide margin, but the latter came significantly closer and, undoubtedly, contributed to that defeat. This tells us how to fight back against fractivists; by appealing to fairness.

Natural Gas Energy Is Giving Power to the Poor and Lighting the Future

Natural gas energy is electrifying the world, giving power to the poor. New technology is going to accelerate the process. Natural gas energy IS our future.

Two stories came to my attention yesterday that illustrate natural gas energy is our future. The first is an article from the International Energy Agency (IEA) reporting on the successful electrifying of the world and especially of its poorest corners. The second is a post about a new turbine now being tested on a commercial scale. It promises to revolutionize electricity production in a thoroughly practical way. Together, they paint a picture of a world lifted from poverty; a beautiful world made possible by natural gas energy.

Did Tom Steyer Instigate the DRBC Fracking Ban?

Tom Wolf’s proposal for a DRBC fracking ban came suddenly and most have assumed it was a lawsuit Plan B maneuver but was it instigated by Tom Steyer?

A deep dive into the relationships between the Steyer and Rockefeller families and the former’s connection with Tom Wolf suggest the answer could be yes. There is no doubt the two families are connected. It’s also clear Tom Steyer is behind Tom “Trust-Funder” Wolf, Pennsylvania’s two-faced governor, who made the first move toward the DRBC fracking ban.

New Yorkers Are Being Coerced Into Accepting Backyard Wind Farms

Article 10 of the New York State Public Service Law allows the governor’s henchmen to coerce towns into accepting backyard wind farms. Where did home rule go?

Yesterday’s post from the Institute for Energy Research generated a comment from reader and guest blogger Mark Dye, who made a very cogent point about New York State’s hypocrisy with respect to energy facility siting, He observed people “care about is being coerced in to something and related a conversation he had with a NIMBY about New York’s Article 10 of the Public Service Law, which, contrary to the Court of Appeals decision in the Middlefield case, says the state can supersede local energy siting decisions if local zoning is “unreasonably burdensome.” Mark notes the fact the State could “force large renewable energy projects (larger than 25 MW) on her was an eye opener.” He makes a great point.
