In settlement between a fracker, Range Resources, who I am truly embarrassed to say is from Fort Worth and a Pennsylvania family with small children. Wherein the settlement agreement imposes a lifetime gag order on the family fracked - including their children. Notice that, in order to cover up their "mistakes" the shale gas industry has to "buy silence" either contractually, in the lease, or via litigation - in this case, in settlement of a lawsuit. Among other things, the 7 and 10 year old … [Read more...] about Range Resources Gags Children !
Originally posted at The Wrench: THE WRENCH: When USA Means "United (Frack) Shills of America": The Marcellus Shale Coalition's Big Gas Parade, May 6th 2014, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania I remember a time--not all that long ago-- when the Marcellus Shale Coalition promoted itself as a largely neutral coalition of interests connected to the the Marcellus Shale formation under the farms and forests of Pennsylvania and New York. When I look back on that brief moment --when we didn't quite yet … [Read more...] about When USA Means “United (Frack) Shills of America”: The Marcellus Shale Coalition’s Big Gas Parade, May 6th 2014, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
The Fractavist A Team vs Some Token Frackers - at Cornell on the 4th. Ingraffea, Steingraber and Hang vs Cabot Energy SpokesFlak Tom Shepstone, a local shale shyster, and a token apologist geologist. Bring your own popcorn. Air horns will positively not be allowed inside the auditorium. Remember - it is impolite jeer when the frack shills are speaking - wait until they complete their sentences so that everyone can hear what the frack you are jeering about. … [Read more...] about Cornell Super Frackdown 2 !
Dear readers of No Fracking Way, I am incredibly excited and flattered to have been invited to add my voice to the excellent writer-researcher-activists of Shaleshock Media. I have been writing a series on the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, its associated industries, its promise of future catastrophe for human and nonhuman health, communities, and the environment for Raging Chicken Press since about April of 2011. I have the "privilege" of living near some of the burgeoning epicenters … [Read more...] about Introducing Wendy Lynne Lee
The history of anti-Gasland mockumentaries repeats itself - again. The first time as tragedy - Shelly dePue's painfully embarrassing Bubbling Annulus, (which is the unseen star of Truthyland), the second time as farce: Phlegm McKleer's cut 'n paste FrackNation. Wherein Phlegm the Phracking Phreak explains the grass roots opposition to shale gas industrialization as a Russian plot. That's certainly news to me, tovarich. When I thought I was supposed to be working for the fracking Park … [Read more...] about FrackNation: Tedious leprechaun likes fracking. So fracking what ?
Otherwise known as "forced pooling" "compulsory pooling" or "compulsory integration" all of which end in the same result: the frackers use the government to compel landowners into gas wells. In New York, the compelled landowner has three choices as to how the state pushes them into a well: 1. Head first - pay a pro-rata share of the well costs as incurred 2. Feet first - pay pro-rata cost of the well in arrears, from production, if any 3. Sideways - get the lowest royalty possible … [Read more...] about Fracker’s Eminent Domain
The mighty Marcellus is unstoppable or not? By chasgas » Sat May 23, 2015 5:31 am How easy it is to forget there are limits to growth, especially when what you observe is designed to make us forget. The great Marcellus is famous for having increased its production 12-fold in four years to become the US' largest producing natural gas field, but things have not looked that great lately. The average daily production estimate reported by EIA in January was 16319, in … [Read more...] about When Will Marcellus Shale Gas Be Tapped-Out?
After the Showdown in the Bar with fractavist mayor Matt Ryan, Victor "Vic" Furman, the Joint Landowners Coalition spokesman, has admitted to indecent exposure caught on video tape at a peaceful anti fracking demonstration - that included children. Here's the news coverage on Victor Furman, who is seeking a restraining order because he claims to be fearful of a man that he outweighs by 150 pounds. This immense fracking chickenhawk, the gashole buddy of frak flak Tom Shepstone, is what passes … [Read more...] about New York’s Fattest Fracking Chickenhawk Admits to Indecent Exposure
There are the mega shale $cammers - like Aubrey McClendon of Chesapeake Energy - the man who turned fracking shareholders into an art: http://www.forbes.com/sites/energysource/2012/04/23/aubrey-mcclendon-must-be-stopped/ And then there are the local variety - the paid shale $hills that slink from one town board meeting to the next. http://www.scribd.com/doc/78149419/Energy-in-Depth-Tom-Shepstone The shale $hills in New York have two strategies to try to persuade towns to refrain from acting … [Read more...] about McClendon’s Minions at Town Boards
