People of the shale!
Frack Tshirts, popcorn, Frack wine and a premier showing of "Truthland" at the Yellow Creek Theatre? Does this sound like a great "Gig" or what? Hell! this can be the next GMS party, and because the land is private, we can "evict" any anti frackers, "No movie for you!" And my Jazz ensemble can grove before the movie, playing "Frack me up" ala the "Start me up" Rolling Stones.
Click on the picture of the theatre below, notice how the movie screen is the bridge wall or go to Yellow Creek Theatre.com.
What bothers me is you trying to by any means shut down the best, cleanest, and economical energy source we have. As having delivered propane I have seen those on fixed incomes sacrifice in order to heat their homes. I have seen first hand the hardships of eastern Ohio and want to see these people and their children advance.
Now what should bother you is your conscience! Your very quick to point a finger in your fear mongering but look at reality . This is the reality:
See where private land owners require no license http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/to... In part:
(b) The provisions of this section shall not be applicable to-(1) Any farmer performing any function on any land owned or leased by him for farming purposes.(2) Any natural person drilling a well on land owned by him or of which he is a lessee and used by him as his residence.http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/topogeo/g... Who must be licensed to drill a water well in Pennsylvania?
Any person who intends to construct a water well in the Commonwealth must first secure a Water-Well Driller's License and a Drilling Rig Permit, unless it is on land owned or leased by the person drilling the well for farming or is his/her residence. Does using a licensed driller insure my well will be properly constructed?
Unfortunately it does not. Drillers are NOT required to demonstrate knowledge of proper drilling or well construction practices in order to become licensed. Pennsylvania has developed construction standardsonly for public water-supply wells. There are no statewide construction standards for domestic supply wells. Visit the DEP web page on private wells for more information. Also, check with your township or county government for applicable local ordinances. With that being said how in the H can anyone be pointing a finger?
People are hurting everywhere. Natural gas isn't going to save them. It will some people out but not the majority. Clean? No way is it clean. You call me fear mongoring, I call you false flag waiving, but the facts are here.
Name a few fuels that are economically available, in abundant supply, as clean that is reliable 24/7, you can't!
I have been to coal burning power plants, even nuclear, and have been to numerous gas turbine facilities personally. The difference is night and day when it comes to the environment. You can scar the mountain tops with windmills that do not work 24/7, you can tear up tillable land in the hundreds of acres and cannot even match the low environmental impact of natural gas power generation!
Maybe this explains your position?
On balance, I believe the shale revolution is a must for our country. I cannot agree that NG is a bad play. The positives far outweigh any potential problems.
In my opinion.
There is a broken link David. Anyway, I disagree that the positives outweigh the negatives as we haven't seen all the negatives yet. At time goes on and the casings begin to fail, and frack fluid is pushed to the aquafers, then we will realize the full effects, but that is a difficult concept to argue with oeple who don't care because money is coming in now.
The whole part of this thread was to talk about Truthlands credability and everyone here is deflecting from the glaring truths that the film is the same bullshit it is acusing Gasland of being.
Seems like "Truthland" either lost its steam or is about to bust out with its mojo.
Have not heard anything lately from any of the producers or promotors, hope this is not the case. Nonetheless, drilling and fracking seem not to gain much attention from the public as much, it could be that the majority of the population, now is in acceptance of this new technology in energy harvest.
You look so innocent, docile and professional on the drums. Who would have thought that you are in fact a dangerous criminal polluting the pristine environment of eastside Youngstown with your horrible shrimp-farming endeavor? It's no wonder the municipal authorities of Y-town found it necessary to shackle you, toss you in the can with other "perps", then assign you to a probation officer!
Fortunately for all of us, the Youngstown establishment stepped in and rescued us from a potential job-creating business venture in a location where we all know new jobs are a dime-a-dozen! What can these guys be thinking?!?
would it not be easier to borrow money from the town fathers make promises of umlimited jobs national exposure.
Then you could go defunct bankrupt it then let them have. it does not seem reality abounds
logic is not prevailing in that zip code.
United Shaleowners Association (USA), people-of-the-shale,
Since we are about to organize, what if we do what I sort of suggested last summer, a funraiser by showing and debating "FrackNation" and "Gasland?" We can make this a big event and reveal that the Fractivist will only number 12. Again click on the attachment to see the outdoor venue. Or click on google YellowCreekTheatre.com
