And my oh my oh my; the natural gas industry's fangs and claws are out. What a bunch of whiners.
Too bad the cast of characters at the Marcellus Shale Coalition and their $75,000 per month advisers just don't get it. The more publicity they bring to Gasland and the Oscar it is in the running for, the greater the probability it will win. Seriously, where do they get these people? Strategic thinking definitely isn't their strong point.
I'm guessing the senior executives at Chesapeake, Cabot, Range Resources and the MSC get nice bonuses as part of their annual compensation packages. I wonder if there is an added incentive for coming up with the most believable lie. If there is, they all should be in a position to retire right about now.
By the way, in case you missed it, there was another "minor" gas well blowout in one of PA's state forests a few days back. Talisman Energy is the guilty party this time. And in case you forgot, Talisman was fined earlier this month for a diesel fuel spill at another PA site. Can these people do anything right?
