One of the reasons why we need a Revolution

In 1999, a series of laws /reforms went into effect essentially giving the financial world total control not only over your property, what is under your property, the companies that produce what is under your property, the pipelines to ship what ever they find, the trucks to transport it, the tankers to hold it off shore and sell it back to the USA (aka you) when it is most or least needed at a premium or send it China if they don’t think they will not make enough money selling it in the USA. Let me introduce you  to the “Financial Modernization Act of 1999” Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

This is what I would like to term as “Crafted Fascism”.fas·cism noun ˈfa-ˌshi-zəm also ˈfa-ˌsi-: a way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator (or in this case a group of dictators i.e. banks) controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government.

             It turns the United States into an industrial warehouse where you don’t even  own your name. Crafted in the minds of people very similar to the ones that brought you Jekyll Island, Goldman Sachs, Chase, J.P. Morgan. This act lets their  be no progress. No return of manufacturing to the U.S. It discourages invention. It assures that the .oooo1% will sit proudly on their thrones….

Highland Township in Bradford County Injection Well fight……fracking-rig

An environmental law firm is defending a Highland Township ban on injection well activity, even after a federal agency approved the very project the ban was created to prevent.

Wednesday’s meeting of the Highland Township Supervisors included a presentation by members of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. The environmental law firm wants to represent the township in its ongoing battle against natural gas corporation Seneca Resources over a planned injection well near a municipal water supply in James City.

Prior to the start of the meeting, Ben Price of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund said the injection well project will not move forward given his firm’s legal defense of a local law banning the practice — even with the project obtaining U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permitting earlier this month.

Price refers to a 2013 ordinance adopted by the Highland Township Supervisors which banned injection wells in the township. The ordinance labels the underground injection method used in disposing of natural gas drilling wastewater a threat to health and public safety as it has been linked to earthquakes and groundwater pollution.

The ordinance still stands and trumps even state law and EPA approval, according to Price, who said an EPA permit cannot be used to violate local law.

“It says so right in the issuance of the permit,” Price said, adding, “it really doesn’t make much difference whether (the project) is approved, the community has a right to protect its rights. Supervisors take an oath to protect the community and the EPA doesn’t have the authority to nullify that oath of office or those obligations.”

Seneca Resources Corp. has previously dismissed the Highland Township ordinance as a violation of state oil and gas legislation, and threatened litigation to invalidate it.

Price said the company’s stance matters little to a defense of the township’s position and code.

“It’s not relevant whether Seneca Resources Corp. believes the law is legal or not, they don’t have the option to decide what laws to obey,” Price said. He argues that fundamental rights to clean water supersede state administrative law, although the matter may be left to a judge’s discretion.

For his part, Highland Township Supervisor Jim Wolfe said on Wednesday the township is considering its options, including filing an appeal to the EPA’s permit approval.

Before Wednesday’s meeting, Wolfe said he looked forward to public input on the subject.

“We don’t know what to expect … it’s a big controversy,” Wolfe said.

Price points to the City of Pittsburgh’s successful ban on fracking in 2010 as well as 160 communities with “rights abuse laws,” similar to Highland Township’s injection well ban, as evidence of the odds being in the township’s favor.

“It’s not a done deal yet,” Price said of Seneca’s injection well plans and the EPA approval.

Seneca Resources had no planned attendance at Wednesday night’s meeting.

Seneca has announced no timetable for the injection well becoming operational and says the project remains in the regulatory phase. The company has said it is looking to cooperate with Highland Township officials as the project progresses.                ƒƒƒ         OCCUPY BRADFORD

Thanks sooooo much XTO, I feel so safe.

Rather than invest in a cleaner energy source, I guess the plan is to mask your company name with an acronym that seems harmless. XTO is really ExxonMobbil.

on’t Take Chances — Call Before You Dig

Damage from excavation-related activities is a leading cause of pipeline accidents. If you are a homeowner, farmer, excavator or developer we need your help in preventing pipeline emergencies. If you are considering projects like building a pool, building a fence, widening a driveway or planting trees, call 811 before you dig. Here’s what to do:

1. Call 811 at least two business days before excavation is scheduled to begin.

Some states may vary. State specific information can be found athttp://www.call811.com/state-specific.aspx

2. Do not begin work until a trained technician has come to mark the location of any pipelines in your area. This will be at no cost to you.

3. Adhere to the pipeline markers.

Trust Your Senses

If you see, hear or smell any of the below, it may indicate a pipeline leak. It is important to always be aware.

Sight: A pool of liquid on the ground near a pipeline; a rainbow sheen on water; a dense white cloud or fog over a pipeline; or discolored vegetation; Unnatural frost or ice in the pipeline right-of-way or on the tank battery or well location equipment.

Sound: An unusual noise coming from the pipeline, like a hissing or roaring sound.

Smell: An unusual chemical odor such as gas or oil. A strange odor in the area similar to the smell of rotten eggs.

What To Do If A Leak Occurs

  • Leave the area immediately. Do not travel downwind.
  • Do not touch, breathe or make contact with leaking liquids.
  • Do not light a match, start an engine, use a telephone, switch on/off light switches or do anything that may create a spark. Do not drive into a leak or vapor cloud area.
  • Call 911 or your local emergency response number from a safe location. Then call XTO’s emergency number for your area and give your name, phone number, description of the leak and its location.
  • Warn others to stay away.
