I’ve got to admit this is pretty slick.
Eureka! Too bad it’s not true.
“You must have heard how natural gas is changing the way we think about energy in America…”
Eureka! They’re sure wining the hearts and minds…oh wait!
…How new technologies have unlocked a supply that will serve America for 100 years...
Eureka! Let’s look at what they’ve unlocked:
Eureka! Will your backyard be next?
…How natural gas–with just half the CO2 emissions as coal–is the best foundation on which to build our renewable energies like solar and wind…
Eureka! It’s really methane the most powerful greenhouse gas!
Eureka! Invisible methane emissions
Eureka! With gas drilling and those jobs comes increased crime!
What might they have done with that $80 Million? Maybe they could have compensated the thousands of people who have been harmed by drilling activity. Or they could buy some pit liners, or invest it in ethics training. Eureka! They could have spent it toward Doing it Right.
