The “anti-natural gas agenda strikes again. See, here’s how it works: Anytime you object to getting poisoned or getting ripped off in the stock markets, you must be anti-gas. We’re just so unreasonable.
“The New York Times hates Texas. That’s part of their agenda,” said Bernard Weinstein, associate director of Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University
Trick #4: Tell your readers that Deborah Rogers does work for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, but don’t mention that she also works for environmental groups that seek to ban hydraulic fracturing — even though most folks might think that’s relevant here.
…only, that’s total bullshit on two counts.
- She does not work for any environmental group that I know of.
- OGAP is not trying to ban drilling.

Bernard Weinstein is a prostitute who will come to any conclusion you pay him to come to.
Article in NYT doesn’t make sense. MIT and government estimates show high volumes of shale gas. Prices are low because of glut in shale gas.
Interesting how those estimates increased exponentially once accounting rules changed, though.
Hope Hinchey & SEC have success in getting industry and EIA to document how these estimates were reached.
Just like the air quality and water quality that they push back on: if it's so clean, so safe, the reserve estimates are so accurate……why not full transparency as to how these conclusions are achieved?
The EIA numbers on shale gas are misleading. Since shale gas is being harvested at much higher levels RATHER than conventional gas, of course it is going to show up as 25% of the total now. Further prices are low and there is a glut because the operators kept drilling even though prices were too low. Why? Because they had to meet debt service. But now thousands of people in North Texas have had their minerals harvested at extremely low prices so they haven't realized the royalties that they should have gotten had this industry been less in debt and better resource stewards.
