E.P.A. fracking report may complicate Cuomo ban Just when New Yorkers thought the debate over fracking in the state was settled, a federal report released on Thursday concluded that the extraction process does not lead to widespread water pollution. The federal Environmental Protection Agency found there was no evidence that fracking caused “widespread, systemic” pollution of water sources. The agency did, however, find hundreds of examples of localized water pollution and found … [Read more...] about The Daily Frack – June 5

Trump was once a Democrat and supported such progressive ideas as protecting women's reproductive rights, and a single-payer health care system. But the newly elected POTUS has been transformed into a vengeful and vindictive asshole who can be relied upon to NOT tell the truth about anything EVER, and will attack those he perceives as his 'enemies' (anyone who doesn't kiss his dumb ass!)...

Northeast gas pipeline progresses, to some landowner dismay HARPERSFIELD, N.Y.

Tens of thousands of acres would effectively be lost to Mexico. Anything south of the wall would be of no use to anyone north of the wall. It would become, at best, a no-man’s land, and by default, ceded to Mexico - along with access to the river itself. Although the land and riverbank would technically still belong to the United States, it would be walled off fromTexas, and access to the Rio Grande River would be lost from the Texas side. It is difficult to build anything in a riparian … [Read more...] about Trump’s Border Wall Cedes the Rio Grande to Mexico !
One LNG export terminal at a time. So much for "Drill a well, bring a soldier home" from where exactly ? The Syrian Gas Pipeline War ? Europe gets the gas, and Fracksylvania keeps the frack filth. Such a deal. The gas industry propaganda started out as "America's 100 year supply of shale gas, morphed into 60 years when the LNG export permits were filed, and is now down to 'generations' - which can be anything over 20 years." Or in the case of the Marcellus, which is targeted by this latest … [Read more...] about Marcellus Gas Goes To Europe
A two for one deal. Big time. The US has never been a big exporter of oil and gas. Exportation implies that a county is a net producer of hydrocarbons - both oil and gas, which is not the case with the US, we're a net consumer. Traditionally, the Texas Railroad Commission would limit supply (pumping) of oil to conserve the resource. The notion that it would be over-produced and to be exported overseas, except to our allies in time of war, was never a consideration - because that simply … [Read more...] about Feds Promote Depletion of US Gas Reserves With East Coast’s Largest Climate Changer

Read that the New York Times is repeating the rumor that the Russians are behind the global backlash against fracking. This hoax first surfaced in Europe, then spread to the US (including Denton, Texas) and before it completely frittered away from disuse, a Times reporter recycled it, from a previous article, one more time: Russian Money Suspected Behind Fracking Protests By ANDREW HIGGINS "Circumstantial evidence, plus large dollops of Cold War-style suspicion, have added to mounting alarm … [Read more...] about New York Times Repeats Russian Fractavist Conspiracy Hoax
