PR Watch exposes how Chesapeake Energy CEO, Aubrey McClendon, and T. Boone Pickens plan to enrich themselves by using the NAT GAS Act and along the way We The People get solidly fracked.
From the author: My new article, about how literally how three men, connected through think-tanks, methane (“natural”) gas corporations, and lobbying fronts, are gaming the system and pushing forward federal legislation that will ultimately lead to, along with all of the other daily ongoing tragic environmental happenings in the US, ecological catastrophe.
Chesapeake has announced a “Declaration of Energy Independence”
which would fatten their wallets at the expense of the environment.
And they are making good use of the media to promote their agenda.
On the day of the announcement, for example, Pickens made appearances on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe with Joe Scarborough” and on Bloomberg TV, McClendon and Chesapeake sponsored an “Energy Breakfast Briefing” that was co-hosted by Politico, and also was a guest on CNBC and Bloomberg TV, and Littlefair was also a guest on CNBC’s “Mad Money with Jim Cramer”
