The Marcellus Coalition & Sunoco make fools out of SE PA

Approving the “Mariner East Pipeline 2” this afternoon a  five member committee continues to pour billions (3) into the #fossilfuel industry with no regards for some of the best #Organic  Farmland in PA. This will result in very few careers and few hundred temporary construction jobs. This, like #Covepoint, needs to be addressed immediately before the first pin goes in. Organize at locations all along the Sunoco proposed line and remember that they have NO RIGHTS to be on your property. If there is currently a line running through your property this is a second; and spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E if the initial line were to break. This will also install a 10,000+ HP compressor station every 20 or so miles, straight through the heart of Cumberland County, Dauphin County and others not mentioned but outlined on the diagram. This will also solidify the need to make another “port-city” to export gasses to, creating a potential time-bomb for natural gas explosion.

I appreciated your pathetic attempt to start scaling down the fracking In PA(@GovernorTomWolf) but that is what it was, PATHETIC! You obviously do not know that some of us have had these farms and burial lands in Lancaster, York, Cumberland, and Dauphin counties as well as the Lehigh Valley for Hundreds of years. In the case of some of your native constituents, the land has been owned for thousands of years.

During “DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS DAY” (Feb. 13/14th) think back to what a fool you were for taking  money from the fracking companies for “Safe Drilling”.


You are almost as Sickening and Uneducated as the previous governor.     ————————FFF

Keystone Progress and The Community Environmental Legal Defence Fund

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

Natural Gas “America’s Fuel” THE BIG LIE


Growing domestic production over the past several years has replaced pipeline imports from Canada, while exports to Mexico have increased. EIA expects these trends will continue through 2015. EIA projects net imports of 3.5 Bcf/d in 2014 and 2.6 Bcf/d in 2015, which would be the lowest level since 1987. Over the longer term, the EIA Annual Energy Outlook 2014 projects the United States will be a net exporter of natural gas beginning in 2018.       Taken from the   STEO : (Federal Short -Term Energy-Outlook)                  ƒƒƒ   OWS   OCCUPY

Even though the facts presented are accredit to http://www.opensecrets.org, It proves the revolving door that swings oh so freely in Washington, allowing the passage of major legislation and BIG money to influence the votes of your seemingly innocent local elected officials. These are the names of those with no morals and dollar signs in their dreams.   These are the real people behind the COMCAST merger.    ƒƒƒ         OWS   OCCUPY   OCCUPY WALL STREET
