I see these pewriodic "ignored" lines. I assume it must be some idiot who is trying to get me to respond to their idiocy.
WELL, Heres the News from Lake Wallanpaupack:
On March 15 , Denny Borawski, PA's chief oil and gas field geologist, opened his big yap and compared the documentary, "GASLAND" to Nazi propoganda , specifically the anti-Jewish films commissioned by Joseph Geobbels.
Josh Fox, the producer and documentary creator of "Gasland" stated in a public announcement that "Borawski should "Be fired for his unashamed insensitivity". Fox's father was a Holocaust survivor so hes not going to be charitable and accept Borawski's apology.
The governor said hes'Evaluating his options wrt Borawski's future in the Department of NAtural Resources.
I kinda feel that BOrawski, will be fired for choosing the least proper words in his criticism of GAsland.
Ive seen GAsland and I feel that its agenda driven . Admittedly , the environmental problems with gas drilling in PA alone have been "Underreported" , because many of the environmental hazards that Fox related in the movie are true. However, these are issues of engineering and more careful oversight. The real problem is that the state of PA, fully backing the gas drilling carpetbaggers, are letting them get away with it without any significant fines . Fines to date have been piling up but are nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
I say , lets oversight this industry to death so that we dont create another horror like the consitions of many PA streams that flow through the coal measures. The GAS under our state, isnt going anywhere, so why open our doors to irresponsible drilling . I like what they propose in Texas (where one of the country"s highest extraction fees are levied). In Texas, they have the ability to rescind leases and renegotiate them with other exploration consortia.(I like this because it would create business opps for responsible "start up" drillers and gas geology service companies.
Our new Governor , "Cluel;ess" Tom Corbett) has opened the state game lands for FREE to all drillers .
LEases dont collect any fees except from private landowners. No state lands will require fees
Pa will not levy an extraction fee (or taxd) to pay the state for depleting its gas resource. (Clueless Tom says that the drillers are paying a CNI tax,(this is total bullshit because they wont pay any Corp "Net" Income tx EVER) I know how this racket works and its all expensed and the production is usually gotten away with because gas would be pumped as "Researching production techniques"
Personally, I hope that Borawski gets fired for his insensitive comments and, at the same time, I hope this event starts drawing attention to the need for better regulation and fee structures. Clueless Tom cant start off his legacy by allowing the wholesale ******* up of my state for free Course, this is only MHO
