"DR" TERRY ENGELDER


"...do we as citizens of the state of Pennsylvania have the good will to seize the opportunity offered by the Marcellus and make this opportunity something that is in the best interest of everyone? I think the answer is yes."

In consideration of his longstanding "service" as Penn State Professor and very influential (and highly paid?) consultant to leaders in government, business, and education, the good "Dr" has assumed the position of "Arbitor of Best Interests and Necessary Sacrifices".


In an interview the "Dr" said, "...if I'm in it for a dime, I'm in it for a dollar." Asked about the dangers of gas drilling he said, "...there will be accidents. People expect that level of risk in automobiles."

He was not asked about fracking hubris or category errors.

BAN DRILLING - MY CREDO


"THIS HALLIBURTON PROCESS
WILL NOT BE SAFE!"

"IT WILL NOT BE SAFE, NO MATTER
WHO DOES IT!"

"IT WILL NOT BE SAFE, NO MATTER
WHERE THEY DO IT!"

"IT WILL NOT BE SAFE, NO MATTER
WHEN THEY DO IT!"

"IT WILL NOT BE SAFE, NO MATTER
HOW THEY DO IT!"

"IT WILL NOT BE SAFE, NO MATTER WHO WATCHES THEM...
WHILE THEY DO IT!"

"We cannot win anything worth winning in our struggle with these waterfracking invaders, if we only seek what is possible - if we only seek what they allow."

"To have any chance to truly win something real, enough of us - that's all of us - must insist upon having what we are told we cannot have."

"We need to unitedly demand what is thought to be impossible..."

WE MUST DEMAND AND GET
A PERMANENT BAN
ON SHALE GAS DRILLING EVERYWHERE 
WITHIN THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA
For The Children

Many Thanks to David J Cyr

WE ARE SO FRACKED


This is way wrong.

Two months ago I happened upon a pbs show featuring Josh Fox and his movie Gasland. My life changed. At first I was concerned with the Delaware River becoming polluted. Three generations of my family live in Lower Bucks County - the fourth has just arrived. This seemed a serious threat to us all.  Since that day I have relentlessly pursued all available information on gas drilling and its potential to harm our environment and our health.

I am convinced that my - OUR - state is doomed if the gas drilling is not stopped - NOW.

I am an 8th generation Pennsylvanian with an ancestor who fought as a lieutenant in Trenton and Princeton. For over 250 years the family has lived throughout the state and enjoyed everything it has had to offer - loyal citizens secure in the belief that we are protected by our elected officials.

NO MORE.

We have all been betrayed - sold out - by our officials at every level of government. Officials who have sworn an oath to uphold the constitution and have consistently broken that vow. The evidence is easily available, abundant and overwhelming - from township supervisors up to Gov Rendell - the biggest betrayer of all. 

My efforts to inform others of this situation are usually met with disinterest and indifference. I find this both puzzling and shocking - some kind of denial?

I am going to devote as much time as possible to spread awareness of this coming disaster. In reaching out across the state and country I have found a growing number of very devoted, very alarmed, very angry and very good people who have been working long and hard to end this travesty. I have links to several of those on the right - please visit and learn and follow their links to other important sites.  I have also included links to some videos and tv shows of interest.

I have become sick at heart and furious. It seems everything I find is profoundly troubling. I hope this blog helps us. I encourage comments -
but, please:
