Somebody call Beijing, quick! Chesapeake Energy reported on a $1.6 billion loss for the second quarter.
Jerry Horton, sweet little lady in turquoise dress, was served condemnation papers yesterday by Texas Midstream [Chesapeake Energy’s pipeline company]. The home she has lived in since she was 19 years old is being taken for a pipeline–exercising eminent domain against citizens for corporate profit. The court date is August 21 at 9:30 a.m. Evidently, she can’t afford a lawyer.
Devon Energy started a new program to recycle water used in drilling.
Chesapeake can’t decide if Global Warming is fact or fiction.
The VP says fiction:
Chesapeake CEO offers up his Global Warming LIE: The MYTH of natural gas as a clean fuel

Global warming is “fiction.”
Sigh. I’m getting so tired of this ploy by corporations.
Remember the cigarette company executives testifying before Congress that there was no “proof” that cigarettes caused lung cancer?
For a corporation, the only proof, one assumes, would be a stone tablet, carved by a fiery Hand, that declared “Quit destroying my creation!”
Look, folks, if the scientists are right, we only have a short amount of time before this problem becomes irreversible. So we need to do something NOW.
If they’re wrong, well, we’ve cleaned up our air, cleaned up our water, developed alternate forms of energy that don’t pollute and are sustainable, reduced or eliminated our dependence on foreign oil….where’s the downside? (Except that some corporations would have to pay their execs fewer millions?)
Just thought I’d let you know you got a nice mention on the Arizona blog Random Musings.
Also, the post I did on you being attacked by Chesapeake was picked up by Reuters and posted on their website.
Wow! Picking on the little people doesn’t pay. I would love to see that Reuter’s post.
Thank you for letting me know.
Here is the blog address for the Reuters posting:
Thank you! You must be important as all get out for Reuters to pick up your posts.
I guess I’ll have to post this just to give Chesapeake and Ackerman McQueen something to do. har har
You ought to sign up your blog with BlogBurst. It offers your posts to newspapers and such. I’ll bet some news sites would love to repost some of your stuff.
You don’t get paid, but it does give you a wider audience. I’ve been picked up by Reuters, USA Today, Atlanta Journal-Consititution, Chicago Sun-Times and several others.
Just look for the BlogBurst button on my site.
I did sign up with them, but I guess they haven’t activated it yet. I’ll try again.

How is the Powell Barnett Shale Newsletter connected to Chesapeake in any way? I don’t doubt you have gotten under their skin but I think you are again misleading people.
What are talking about? Please be specific, and if you are going to accuse me of something, you mght want to go back and read what was written BY ME more carefully.
Are you, by any chance, an Aggie? You remind me of someone.

Even if someone else says it you are allowing it to be posted on your blog. You would not let me to say the infomercials were independent of Chesapeake so why allow someone to falsely accuse an independent newsletter of being a shill for Chesapeake?
You remind me of a female senator from NY!
You might notice that I did not post the link on my blog to call attention it the post on Reuters as I indicated I would in my earlier comment. His comment was published before I read the post on Reuters and now it has been corrected in the comments so I won’t need to make a post about it when he does correct it.
However, carefuul reading of what was said about me will reveal that Julie Wilson DID attack me in the quote.
What you don’t know, among many other things, is that I notified the blogger privately to give him the opportunity to make a correction.
You see this is what is so great about my blog and why Chesapeake, their PR firm, Ackerman McQueen and their lawyers spend all day every day on my blog: I try very hard to be sure my information it true. All I have to do is tell the truth and it makes them look as bad as they truly are.
If you believe and trust an Oil & Gas Company, invite them over for supper—but you better count the silverware before they leave!
