Energy In Depth is to fracking as Joe Camel is to cigarettes

by TXsharon on August 25, 2012
Dr. Cline and EID offer extraordinarily weak expositions which contradict their premise, demonstrate an acute misunderstanding of their own industry and advocate for actions which are not considered “best practices” in the oil and gas field.
Energy in Depth Makes Massive Mistakes
The Independent Petroleum Association of America IPAA is a “national association representing the thousands of independent crude oil and natural gas explorer/producers in the United States.” Their mission is to ensure “a strong, viable domestic oil and natural gas industry.”
When fracking moved closer to where people live, opposition grew based on the realities of impacts. IPAA developed an advertising campaign to attempt to “combat” regulation “especially with regard to hydraulic fracturing.” That advertising campaign is Energy In Depth. See IPAA memo or EID’s birth announcement.

Petition: Tell the Texas Railroad Commission: Stop the fracking industry’s land grab.

October 22, 2012
Sign the petition HERE From Creedo. You’d think that Texas landowners should be able to say no to fracking on their property, right? They can’t. The Texas Railroad Commission is twisting a century-old law to allow the industry to drill under landowners’ property even when they refuse to lease their land. And without paying them [...]

( There's an act of dubious charity. Have a look at the Sanctions files to see the litany of previous war actions. And yes - the participants call it war. Unprovoked too, BTW. One does not have a relationship with the US - merely degree of subjugation. )
