| Isn't it great that NY is frack free! ... don't be so sure about that... For nearly 2 years an ad hoc group of grassroots activists around the state have been working on mapping how shale gas drilling is already impacting NY despite the de facto moratorium. That project is called YOU ARE HERE ! We will be launching this project on Sept 20th, on Saturday just before the big People's Climate March in NYC. Soon after that, we will be showing YOU the map. If you can make it to NYC, … [Read more...] about You Are Here, New York — 1 week until launch !
From the Constitution Pipeline, or the Spectra, or the Minisink Compressor... If you've been following the activities of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, you'll already have realized that FERC never met a pipeline they didn't like. (This issue of FERC Bias recently came up during the Minisink trial.) So since we all know FERC's a Rubber Stamp Machine, we decided to make a video about it. A cute video/song about a serious … [Read more...] about FERC is a Rubber Stamp Machine

Here's a strange one. On April 7th, the last day to file a comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the so-called "Constitution Pipeline", the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) filed this comment: http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/file_list.asp?accession_num=20140407-5245 The USACE is a party to this proceeding because they have jurisdiction for any pipeline which impacts "waters of the United States". Don't try to read it the document above... it's status was quickly … [Read more...] about Who Pulled Rank on the US Army Corps of Engineers?
The Constitution Pipeline sponsors sometimes claim that the pipeline has no starting compressor - the initial compressor station to get gas going up to pressure and into the line - while at the same time admitting that the Williams Central Station is being built as the starting station. Why the duplicity - other than the fact they are frackers ? Because if they include the Williams Central as the starting compressor of the pipeline, the environmental impact of the pipeline goes off the … [Read more...] about Constitution Pipeline Has/ Has No Starting Compressor ?
This video was recorded today in Fort Worth, Texas. These cigar shaped tank trucks are used to haul frack flowback and are commonly known as "dragon trucks" after the manufacturer. Frack waste haulers are on the low end of the fracking pyramid - they have billions of gallons of frack flowback to get rid of and they are paid by the load, so they are inclined to speed and cut corners. They also have to pay a tipping fee to the disposal well owner to take their load. This fella seems to have … [Read more...] about Disposing of Frack Waste in Ft. Worth (on the cheap)
Debbie Dogskin is dead. She was found in her Fort Yates, North Dakota, mobile home frozen to death with an empty propane tank.   What was the cause of the propane shortage which caused prices to rise and supplies to dwindle in the northern midwest and the northeast this winter? Short answer: It was an engineered gamble by industry seeking to maximize profits. There were really four factors which contributed to the shortage this winter. 2: Abnormally wet corn harvest required extra … [Read more...] about Winter Propane Shortage — Engineered Industry Gamble Which Cost Lives
If Robert Astorino is going to distinguish himself politically from Cuomo, he has to have some wedge issues. In most Republican states, the playbook is clear: bash gays, illegal aliens, gun laws, and Obama. Gastorino is not going after gays or gun laws. Or even Obama. He's left with making up a wedge issue: hyping shale gas - that's not even there. He has to make it seem like New York is missing out on some mythological fracking bonanza. Thousands of jobs and billions in revenue are his … [Read more...] about Gastorino: Gas Trick Pony
