Turns out that Professor Don "Rocks for Jocks" Siegel was getting paid by Chesapeake and his co-author worked for Chesapeake (and still does) when they couldn't find any leaky wells in the dataset that Chesapeake gave them - of wells drilled before Chesapeake started drilling leaky wells - along with other frackers. Which calls the veracity of his work into question. Imagine that. Why are we no longer incredulous about the mendacity of these flaming gasholes ? Fracking Study on Water … [Read more...] about Fracademic Don Siegel Turns Out to Be a Frackademic

Don Siegel teaches Geology 105, aka “Rocks for Jocks” at Syracuse University.

Go figure . . . From Brian Brock: "Since the beginning of the Marcellus Play, Don Siegel, who teaches Rocks For Jocks at Syracuse and shills for salt cavern gas bombs, has been arguing that fracking benefits outweigh cost. His latest study was funded entirely by Chesapeake. I can't find anything about the second author's employer (seems to be self employed), but the rest are consultants, probably contracted by Chesapeake. The data was furnished by Chesapeake, or at least consultants … [Read more...] about Don Siegel, Frackademic, Looks For Leaky Gasholes in Chesapeake Data And Finds None

In prime time. Good for the man from Texas. On behalf of his father, his wife, the Texas delegation, the grand legacy of Lincoln, the Bush family, and all right-thinking Republicans he did the honorable thing. He completely ignored the bloated, SprayNetted con man that the Republicans have picked as their standard bearer. Cruz is universally despised in DC as being a complete maverick. Not a good attribute for a herd animal. He is beloved by Texans for the same reason. This was classic Cruz. … [Read more...] about Cruz Bushwhacks Trump at Trumpfest !
"Gas wells don't leak" is the new "Cigarettes don't kill" As long as the frackers can deny that gas wells don't leak, they will keep denying it. Even as they continue to leak - worldwide. This pattern of denial is a classic legal strategy perfected (for awhile) by the tobacco industry. Who told Congressional committees, juries, the press and the public that "Cigarette's don't kill." Which was, of course a white lie. Cancer kills. People don't choke to death on cigarettes. Get it ? … [Read more...] about Gas Wells Don’t Leak = Cigarettes Don’t Kill
