This is a tale of the turd that didn’t make it to the punchbowl. The turd in this tale is played by me. The punchbowl is the Texas Tribune Festival that took place this past weekend. Steve Horn also has a role:
Then Steve Horn of DeSmog Blog published an investigative piece on Alternet exposing Haynesville as a piece of industry propaganda masquerading as an independent documentary. Turns out Gregory Kallenberg “is actually a well-connected oil and natural gas man, with both a direct and familial financial stake in the ongoing domestic natural gas boom.”
I posted the whole tale over on EARTHblog.
