Emergency Shut-Off Valve In PA State/Municipal Park

IMG_0034 LOOK UP Natural Gas Flares. You DO NOT WANT them any where near your property!!!________FFF

TOO much time on Twitter….

In order to keep up with the almost illegal announcements of SunocoLogistics Mariner 1, 2, 3 Pipeline projects it has sent me to a forum where I can post information in a more timely manner. I am anxious to communicate with my fellow locals but when Enviro-Concern announcements are 2 hours before the meeting in rural areas. Please stay on top with the  facts  SUNOCO FALLS UNDER A SPIDER WEB OF NAMES AND IS NOW OFFERING A 5 cent OFF per gallon PR campaign. A small clip from the Bloserville Cumberland/Perry Pipeline awareness Meeting.

{Another landowner from Bloserville, Lenny Witmer, also expressed his anger over how Sunoco Logistics has been handling the situation. Even more so, Witmer could not help but wonder where the landowners’ local representatives and politicians were that he believes should be at the informative meetings supporting landowners.

“I’m really irritated with America, the politicians for one,” Witmer said, “The fact that those guys in Harrisburg or Washington, D.C., will bend over backwards for Sunoco, Wal-Mart, Kmart, you name it … but Lenny Witmer that lives in the middle of nowhere — they don’t care.”

Though, while the verdict is already out for many of the landowners when it comes to how they feel about the project, some remain skeptical about the overall outcome. Oscar Barrick, a resident of the Bloserville area, was present when Sunoco took over the Mariner East 1 pipeline that already runs through western Cumberland County. Barrick noted that he was unaware of any accidents that had occurred since the first pipeline had been built, but also added that the new pipeline was going to be “a lot bigger” than the residents think it is going to be, and that as of now, he is unsure how to feel about the entire subject.

For some, however, it is not the new pipeline that has residents concerned. The pipeline that currently exists, Mariner East 1, falls into the lower 4 percent of the oldest pipelines in the nation having been built in 1931. Sunoco said it has since refurbished some of the line, but the pipeline’s age still leaves Thorpe and company concerned about the safety of residents who already have the pipeline running through parts of their property. Thorpe noted that while she is not completely against the pipeline projects, she added that the biggest issue for her is the fight for safer regulations for the existing and potentially new pipeline that could be making its way into the area.

As of now, nothing is set in stone as to whether or not the pipeline will actually be constructed. However, Thorpe noted that the process has been proposed and that the wheels are in motion to get the new pipeline underway.

Thorpe and Van Fleet will host another information meeting for the public within the next two weeks.}

Again the next meeting was is Lebanon County where they have faced the least opposition and least educated landowners in Central PA.

How many were informed of the “Quentin Firehall ” community meeting on the 16th??? I encourage everyone to follow our FB awareness group and a daily follow of @frackFreeFarm on twitter to make sure you are not fooled by their campaign and PR actions. Obviously local officials are NOT on your side!!!!!!54d2f283eb98b.image

    Well you can’t expect Wolf to show up but Bloom and state senator should have been there. Some how we need to have pathways for power lines, gas/ oil lines and rail lines. The logical place would be parallel to interstate highways.

My trip to the edge of Ground Zero Fracking Hell

IMG_0009IMG_0012IMG_0013IMG_0017IMG_0034IMG_0039IMG_0029IMG_0031 Although I currently live in central PA, I wanted to see just how bad it got the farther north I went. Besides a noticeable lack of life in the stream behind my cabin, The culture starts to take a very different turn north of Lock Haven, PA.
Suddenly you are caught in a place that has a gross dualism in the culture. In that, I mean that there is something terribly wrong with “Big Money”. Either in the form of pick-up trucks that cost twice as much as the average house in the town of Renovo, PA or just the general lack of community that has been created by fueding neighbors. The natural gas industry has turned quiet winding roads into industrial thourofares. It has brought people in the state from 1000’s of miles away to work on Well-pads that have authorization from the state to use enough water to empty a small pond every day for the next 5 years.
There is a flurry of construction on roads and bridges.This construction is not because it was in need of being done, It is because it has to be done because Tractor and Trailer Trucks and Tri-Axles are using roads that were never built to get pounded daily with traffic that normally would never be in the area. State-game lands and State Forest roads are no longer open to tourism, they are industrial areas. I encourage everyone to get up to Clinton,Bradford,Tioga counties immediately and see the destruction/construction that is taking place. Get up there before Deer-Season and check your well, I doubt if it will be fit to drink.
Last year I wrote an article discussing how faith, terrain and class was segregating PA so this area, where you could get lost in 10 minutes, is no doubt ideal for the fracking industry. Your neighbor could have sold his/her mineral rights 5 minutes away from you and you would never know it. What you will notice though is a pot-hole 12 inches deep and the enormous amount of traffic.
Next time I head north I’ll expect to not be able to 4-wheel or snowmobile on my favorite trails or hunt successfully or fish with any luck.
Pennsylvania is not what it used to be. FFFIMG_0009

porchI’m back and loaded with much more information then ever before. Strap on your belts and get ready for the things you don’t want to know, refuse to believe and simply disgust you. Our water is  in  JEOPARDY  here in central PA and until you have an empty well (I’ll talk about that) Your water is Undrinkable (I’ll talk about that) or you have just succumb to hyper-inflation you are on the downward spiral from your pedestal.  WAKE UP —–-FFF       Occupy the farm  Occupy    Clean the Oceans

The following Groups are DIRECTLY responsible for keeping  FRACKING going Strong in PA. If I made ANY MISTAKES THEY ARE ACCIDENTAL(but I doubt it)

www.columbiacoalition.org /www.cx-energy.com  Crawford County Landowner Group   Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC   Vernon Township Contiguous Landowners Group   Appalachian Landowners’ Coalition   Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC    Tri-County Landowners Coalition  Greenfield Gas Group  Jefferson Twp. Gas Lease Group  Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association  Mt. Jackson / Ohioville Landowners Group Mt. Jackson Group 2   Luzerne County Landowners  SWRTPG–South West Ross Twp Property Group 4-County Gas/Oil Leasing Group  The following are in Mercer County, operating under the same name—Mt. Jackson Group 2 Mt. Jackson Group 3  Mt. Jackson Group 4 / Stoneboro Group  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC   4-County Gas/Oil Leasing Group   Casselman Valley Landowners Group  Greenfield Gas Group   Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association    Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance  The Friendsville Group   Twin Tiers Landowner Coalition  Appalachian Landowners’ Coalition  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC  Venango County Landowners Group  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC  (Warren)  Monyok Valley Landowner’s Group  Scenery Hill Land Owners Group  Lower Wayne Property Owners Alliance   Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association  Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance  Ligonier Landowners  Greenfield Gas Group   Noxen Area Gas Group   Wyoming County Landowners   These are the people who care more about $$$$$$$$  than CLEAN WATER.    If you are a member of any of the above, don’t step one foot near me.  

     I am a little bit taken back by the ignorance and pathetic reality that you would sell your clean mountain and farm land for the toxic excuse of FRACKING. WAS that $6.ooo an acre  +++++ Royalties that are half of what you expected really worth it??  In the segment I’ll talk a bit about dry wells,  UNDRINKABLE WATER  and more……..

As I said in the previous post…..Aqua Pennsylvania was founded as the Springfield Water Company on January 4, 1886, when a group of Swarthmore College professors received a charter to supply water to the residents of Springfield Township, Delaware County. They built a small pumping station and laid pipes to their homes. Initially, new customers were welcomed openly, but as the number of potential customers increased, so did the association’s operating responsibilities. It was then that the association made the decision to incorporate.

XL Dissent is an event for young people to raise our voices in solidarity with communities most impacted by extreme energy. These include Indigenous First Nations in Alberta resisting tar sands extraction, people along the pipeline route opposing TransCanada’s use of eminent domain, and those near major refineries in Texas fighting environmental racism. Approval of the pipeline would ensure that our generation will also experience environmental devastation. We are coming together to register our dissent.

Join us in Washington DC March 1-2 to tell President Obama to reject the northern leg of Keystone XL and protect us from a future defined by climate chaos.

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….
