And the threat of yet another threatened fracking law suit by yet another fracking Shale Shyster. Imagine that. Or just another media stunt. http://www.ithacajournal.com/story/news/local/fracking/2015/08/07/propane-fracking/31278725/ Unable to secede from New York State, some Upstate Frack Addicts now propose to clusterfrack themselves with the equivalent of napalm. Or at least get some free publicity by threatening to propane frack a wildcat well themselves- since the company … [Read more...] about Tioga Frack Addicts Propose to Frack Themselves with Propane.

No matter how fracking hard they didn't fracking try. Both sides of the debate are spinning the recently published EPA Frack Study as "a partial vindication" "no smoking gun" "the smoking gun" "a cover up" "the justification for (fill in the blank)" etc etc etc. How about none of the above. The EPA study was so limited in scope and compromised as to be meaningless. Of course Fracking pollutes water; billions of gallons annually, most of it permanently. That's a given. It is impossible … [Read more...] about Frack Study Cyclops: EPA Didn’t Fracking Find What It Couldn’t See
Fracking numbers add up to environmental nightmare New Yorkers continue to wait with bated breath for the Health Department's study on fracking, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo says will come by year's end. But does New York really need this study to decide its fate? Scarcely a month goes by without some new fracking incident adding to the toll of damage done. Just over a year ago, we published our findings in a report called "Fracking by the Numbers." In the report, we looked at key measures of … [Read more...] about The Daily Frack – Nov. 13
Technically yes. It is. Several hundred million year old seawater laced with poisonous chemicals and unusually radioactive. Produced water, which is pumped out of the well after the frack, is euphemistically referred to as "brine" by the DEC. As in "We are going to dump brine on your road as a de-icer." Or "How would you like some brine for your municipal wastewater treatment plant ?" (Both illegal in Texas) So the definition of produced water, aka brine, is kind of important. Here's how the … [Read more...] about DEC says flowback is seawater !
Range Resources yells Squirrel and the news media is distracted. For the past two days, Bumstead and Puko of the TribLive News has gone bounding after a squirrel with the Range Resources hit pieces on PA Representative Jesse White. Yesterday’s squirrel was about campaign contributions. Today’s squirrel is about “Hispanics and Mexicans”. Tomorrow’s squirrel? Who knows? Maybe about why White isn’t a member of Hair Club for men? There are 4 stages of media/public relations that the … [Read more...] about Range Resources – SQUIRREL!
Many elected officials in New York have already done the right thing to protect their communities against the hazards of fracking. They know they have an obligation to do so. They know that the DEC regulates how a well is drilled. Towns regulate where wells can be drilled. And they know that the DEC has been compromised by the fracking lobbyists. That many of the proposed key fracking regulations were written by Chesapeake's lobbyist. So they are going to do the right thing. They are not … [Read more...] about Local Heroes
With frackers bailing out of Pennsylvania dry gas fields, the odds of them going into marginal territory in New York is less than zero. Your read that here last. New York is being infracstructured instead of fracked. And so we bid a fond AMF to the fracking bozos from Williams. Don't let the swinging door hit you in the butt on the way out. Which Pennsylvania frack hole will flame out next ?

BECAUSE GOVERNOR CUOMO CAN'T "BAN" FRACKING. ONLY A LAW CAN DO THAT. ONLY THE LEGISLATURE COULD DO THAT WITH GOVERNOR CUOMO'S SIGNATURE HOW MANY ALL CAPS HEADLINES DOES IT TAKE TO GET THAT ACROSS ? Got another breathless missive about how Governor Cuomo may not "ban fracking" in New York. Even after he said he'd "ban fracking" in New York. Why is it that "ban fracking" is in quotes (?), you may ask. Because all the dSGEIS has ever addressed is the use of over a certain amount … [Read more...] about WHY GOVERNOR CUOMO WON’T /CAN’T UNILATERALLY BAN FRACKING
