EDF Radicals Ask Court to Shut Down M-U Pipeline to St. Louis

Radicalized leftists from environmental groups like the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) are no longer content to try and prevent the construction of new natural gas pipelines, they now seek to shut down already-built and flowing pipelines. Case in point: A year ago the Spire STL pipeline came online flowing Marcellus/Utica molecules to the St. Louis area (see Spire Pipeline Ready to Flow Marcellus/Utica Gas to St. Louis). EDF is now trying to convince a court to overturn the original FERC approval for the project, which would shut it all down.

Biden Pledges to End the Use of Oil/Fossil Fuels in Final Debate

What more can we say? For those who mistakenly (stubbornly) insist that Biden couldn’t “really ban fracking,” last night sleepy/creepy Uncle Joe pledged to end the use of oil and fossil fuels and “transition away from the oil industry,” calling oil a “significant” polluter. Yes, he’s off his rocker. WAKE UP! If you work for or depend on the oil and gas industry, a vote for Joe Biden is a vote to end your job. It really is that simple. He is telling us he is coming for oil and gas jobs. PLEASE believe him.

Biden Plan Kills Fracking Without an Actual Frack Ban – Same Result

The transition from energy freedom to energy Fascism (the forced abandonment of fossil fuels) is happening far faster than anyone thought possible. Never in our lifetime did we believe Americans would willingly choose Communism and Fascism over American freedom, yet that’s what is happening and will be accelerated under a Joe Biden administration (perish the thought).

4th Circuit Clown Judges Once Again Stop MVP Construction

Enough! How many times do we have to put up with Obama/Clinton liberal Democrat judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit blocking the legal and legitimate construction of Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP)–a project which is 92% in the ground and done! Last Friday the clowns did it again for the umpteenth time–slapping a “temporary” order blocking construction because the anti-America, Russia-backed Sierra Club filed yet another frivolous lawsuit against the project.

Harvard Study Finds No Threat of Radioactivity from Fracking

A newly published paper by researchers with Harvard University tried its best to make a connection between fracking and high levels of radiation–and failed. You won’t know that by reading biased media accounts of the study nor by reading comments from so-called experts reporting on the findings. But when you read the study itself (below), the inescapable conclusion is that Harvard researchers didn’t prove a darned thing, other than there’s no real threat to human (or animal) health from air emissions coming from fracked oil and gas wells.

PA, OH, WV: Watch Biden in His Own Words on Fracking, Fossil Fuels

Donald Trump is NOT lying about Joe Biden and the words Biden has used about his desire to ban fracking *and* eliminate the use of fossil fuels. We have the video (below) showing clips from various Biden events where he unequivocally states he will ban fracking, and (in time) eliminate the use of all fossil fuels. This is Biden in his own words. So was Biden lying then? Or is he lying now?

Big Green Group Files Notice to Sue Sunoco re ME2 Pipe Permits

Based on the suspect testimony of a “whistleblower,” the radical Clean Air Council (CAC) has filed a notice of its intent to sue Sunoco Pipeline claiming the company prevented professional geologists working on the project from properly inspecting and investigating environmental conditions, including subsidence, near the pipelines. Yet another sham lawsuit by a sham organization.

Know-Nothing Anti Tries to Scare NEPA Town into Banning LNG Trucks

It might help anti-fossil fuel radicals if they at least got a few of their facts right. Facts are typically missing from their hysterical proclamations. Case in point: An anti addressed the Ransom Township board earlier this week (Scranton, PA suburb) to try and convince the board to pass a resolution against trucks hauling LNG from traveling through the community on the way to Interstate 81. Her wild claims were false.

Environuts Demand PA DEP Revoke Remaining ME2 Permits

As the Mariner East 2 pipeline project nears completion, radicalized environmentalists who have failed to stop the project are getting desperate. And funny. They always “demand” things–have you ever noticed that about them? An arrogant lot who think they know better than you how to run your life.

Environuts Demand to See Weymouth Compressor Emergency Plan

Environmentalist wackos are the same the world over. They like to “demand” things of other people. We brought you news today of environuts in Pennsylvania demanding the state DEP shut down all drilling for the Mariner East 2 pipeline project based on a few drilling mud spills (see Environuts “Demand” PA DEP Revoke Remaining ME2 Permits). A different group of nuts, in Massachusetts, is demanding to see the emergency plans for a compressor station in Weymouth about to go online. You will comply, resistance is futile…

Antis Organize “Nurdle Patrols” to Police Shell Cracker

A group of anti-fossil nutters who devoted themselves to blocking Marcellus/Utica drilling around the Ambridge Reservoir have turned their attention to the Shell ethane cracker plant in Beaver County. They wanted to stop the cracker from getting built, but given the plant is now 70% built and it’s a 100% guarantee it will get done and go online, the nutters have turned their attention to aggressive monitoring of the plant and the pollution, they say, that will come from it.

MVP Gets Another Permit, Still Waiting on FERC to Resume Constr.

Almost two weeks ago Equitrans Midstream sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requesting they be allowed to restart construction on the Mountain Valley Pipeline, construction which has been suspended since October 2019 (see Equitrans Asks FERC to Allow MVP Construction Restart This Week). So far FERC has not granted the request. However, we have one more (minor but important) permit issued for the project.

Appalachian Trail Conservancy Criticized for Accepting MVP $$

This one was easy to predict. Back in August we told you that the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) project was attempting to buy some love from the radical anti-fossil left by donating $19.5 million to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy to “conserve land along the Trail corridor and support outdoor recreation-based economies in Virginia and West Virginia” (see Mountain Valley Pipe (MVP) Buys Favor with Appalachian Trail Groups). The Conservancy is catching all sorts of grief from its members for accepting the money.

Another Big Green Research “Study” Smears PA Fracking

It’s like the coming and going of the four seasons (or two seasons if you live in Binghamton, NY, summer for two months, winter the rest of the time). On a regular schedule, anti-fossil fuel organizations fund “studies” that supposedly show links between fracking and harmful effects to humans who live near fracking. The latest junk science study (in a long line of such studies) claims to show there have been harmful effects from air emissions from gas well sites in southwest Pennsylvania.
