The Delaware Riverkeeper tries a “shovelful against the wall” legal strategy with the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline at the 3rd Circuit and loses yet again.
“Throw a shovelful against the wall and see what sticks,” is the prototype legal strategy for environmental extremists funded by the bottomless pit gentry class. The Delaware Riverkeeper, financed by the William Penn Foundation to make mischief with respect to Pennsylvania pipeline development, used this strategy in a recent appeal of the Atlantic Sunrise (a/k/a Transco) water quality certification issued by Pennsylvania DEP.
It didn’t work. The Delaware Riverkeeper a/k/a Povertykeeper lost every argument, proving that bovine excrement, in contrast to popular opinion, sometimes doesn’t even leave so much as a stain on the wall.

They have Maya’s number.
