From the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus: WHEN: Noon, Today, Wednesday, 26 July. WHERE: PNC Bank, 1900 E. 9th St., Cleveland. PNC is a major financier of the Rover Pipeline.

PIPELINES ARE LEAKING LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE…">PIPELINES ARE LEAKING LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE…

May 24th, 2017

So, most mornings I post one new pipeline story to my running Keep Carbon In The Ground page, but this morning my news feed gushered. First up is this story from Taylor McKinnon at The Center For Biological Diversity—Public Records Sought Over Rover Pipeline’s Compliance With Environmental Laws. McKinnon writes: The Center for Biological Diversity […]

PIPELINE ROUTE…">KEYSTONE XL: DRIVING THE U.S. PIPELINE ROUTE

May 2nd, 2017

This morning The Guardian launched a three-part series focusing on the mother of all pipelines: the Keystone XL. Why Keystone? Oliver Laughland, writing in in Part I—Life on the Keystone XL route: where opponents fear the ‘black snake—explains: Framed as a victory over government regulation and a win for jobs creation by the Trump administration […]

PART I: HOW POISONED IS MY VALLEY…?

July 6th, 2017

More than a year ago, on 4 March and 9 April, 2016, I began reading Sharon Lerner’s now 12-part series: The Teflon Toxin, for The Intercept. Distracted by first the Democratic primaries, followed by the general election and then the first 166 days of a President Donald John Trump White House, I let Lerner’s deep […]

OIL & GAS IS A DEAD-END CAREER FOR THE YOUNG…

June 23rd, 2017

A writer at KallanishEnergy would have young people believe that there is a bright future in becoming a fossil fuel worker. Well who wouldn’t want to work in a dying industry that is rushing to exploit as many natural resources for shareholder profit and personal wealth as possible before rising sea levels and heatwaves make […]

YOU CAN’T MAKE A PIPE LINE SAFE, MR. EDDY…

June 18th, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I left this comment on Haley Zaremba story Despite High Profile Spills, Oil Pipelines Are Still Safer Than Other Options for OilPrice: Good morning, Pipelines are safer than all the other bad choices. Safer does not equal safe. Safe would be to leave the fossil fuels in the ground and […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
MEET ONE OF ENERGY TRANSFER’S PARTNERS…

May 28th, 2017

When corporate mercenaries thugs strike are Americans safe? There is a long history in the United States of corporations using private armies to destroy those who threaten their profits. The latest permutation of this abomination comes in the form of Energy Transfer Partners’ (builder of the Dakota Access and Rover—here in Ohio—pipe lines) hiring of […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
ROGUE ETP PISSING ON OHIO AND OUR HISTORY…

May 16th, 2017

My congressional representative Jim Bupkis* Renacci remains silent on the rogue fossil fuel company pissing on his constituents living along the scorched-scorched earth path of the Rover pipeline. This morning I learned two additional ways that Energy Transfer Partners is flipping the bird at Ohioans as workers gleefully bulldoze a path across the state, regardless […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
MEET ETP, THE ROGUE COMPANY PISSING ON OHIO…

May 15th, 2017

If you were an Ohioan pissed off at those protesters in South Dakota supporting the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in the attempt to halt Energy Transfer Partners construction of the Dakota Access Pipe Line, then environmental karma is coming for your land. ETP has already had the first leak in the not-yet-opened DAPL and—surprise, surprise—dumped […]

THIS IS SHERRY MILLER’S SHERRODSVILLE, OHIO…

May 12th, 2017

Sherry Miller did not say that taking her land, at any price, was acceptable, but when a giant fossil fuel company—with the full support of climate-change denying Republican politicians—comes banging on your front door, there is no good choice but to believe that David could smite Goliath and win the good fight. So Miller fought […]

ONLY THE FIRST OF MANY TO COME, I’M SURE…

May 11th, 2017

When you run a for-profit business there is only one rule: do all that you can to maximize your profits. That generally means shaving corners in ways that keep you ahead of your competitors and if those corners involve potential injury and risking legal action, well, you have to weight the potential profits against the […]

ET GO THE FECK HOME…!

April 27th, 2017

Not this ET, this ET. Energy Transfer Partners (and its newest acquisition, Sunoco Logistics have a track record worth of a Cleveland sports franchise, with far more devastating consequences than bruised egos. From Earthworks: Today, a diverse coalition of communities represented by more than two dozen organizations across the country launched a coordinated effort to […]

GIVING CONSTITUENTS LAND TO THE BILLIONAIRES…

April 23rd, 2017

Strictly speaking eminent domain involves paying what the buyer (and possibly the courts) consider the fair market value for the land taken, but if you really don’t want this kind of scar bifurcating your farmland, well tough shit. The oil, or in this case, natural gas, must flow! Lou Whitmire, reporting in Pipeline altering countryside […]

POISONING OHIO ONE TWO SPILL(S) AT A TIME…

April 21st, 2017

Perhaps Governor John Richard Kasich would have been smarter to deploy those 37 Ohio State Troopers he sent to North Dakota to protect Energy Transfer’s Dakota Access Pipeline to watch another of the company’s pipeline projects—The Rover Pipeline—which may have dumped millions of gallons of toxic liquids into Ohio’s farmlands, wetlands and rivers leading into […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
THIS IS HOW CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY LOOKS…

April 24th, 2017

I know that this has become, perhaps, an annoying reminder that I repeat and repeat, but I don’t think I state this fact often enough: corporations have one, and only one, function, they must, by law, always, always, always, maximize shareholder value. Nothing must be allowed to hinder the reaching of that goal. Absolutely nothing. […]

N. DAKOTA WANTS CHANGE TO FIRST AMENDMENT…

March 31st, 2017

I’ve written earlier about North Dakota’s assaults on our Constitution including changes sought to protect people from prosecution—see 16 January—if they happen to use their vehicle to run over lawful protesters. As I was updating my list of stories surrounding the Dakota Access Pipe Line this morning, I came across David Blackmon’s A New Controversy […]

CATCHING UP ON THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPE LINE…

March 31st, 2017

So, the environmental protests surround the construction of the Dakota Access Pipe Line moved elsewhere following the closer of the Stand Rock camp about a month ago. The fight is far from over and I thought I ought to write a front-page, omnibus post of events since the closing. (The headlines can be regularly found […]

March 12th, 2017

The Standing Rock Sioux, and thousands of supporters, came to Washington D.C. to continue the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline and for the protection of safe drinking water. Nathalie Baptiste, reporting in Thousands of Dakota Access Pipeline Activists Came to Washington—They aren’t done fighting for Mother Jones, writes: On Friday morning, thousands of indigenous […]

GREAT YELLOW WALL SPEAKS ON STANDING ROCK…

March 5th, 2017

Just as too many Americans (and other people living in the largest industrial nations) farcically respond the grocery store when asked where does food come from, I think that those same people would respond the faucet if you asked them where their water comes from. Here in Cleveland my students are too often surprised to […]
