Flawed anti-fracking study retracted: Fossil fuel TRUTHS cause “eco-freak meltdowns”

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Another day, another flawed fracking study gets retracted for a basic math error. The study in question was retracted after researchers admitted that when calculations were corrected, the results changed significantly. 

Typical of eco-activists, more flaws were found due to biased processes like anti-fracking groups recruiting participants, not using random testing and too small sample sizes.

Despite other regulatory bodies and the EPA producing reports showing that fracking doesn’t cause catastrophic air pollution or contaminants in drinking water, anti-oil crazies love to fill people’s heads with nonsense and lies about the oil and gas industry.

This is why activists get enraged if they don’t get the results they want and why they lose their minds when an official or a scientist counters their claims that the oil and gas industry and fracking, are dangerous.

Watch as I provide examples including an anti-fracking activist meltdown from FrackNation which typifies the behaviour of those who won’t accept any truth but their own.

Fracking is getting banned in places where oil and gas would benefit people by lowering energy bills and bringing jobs and business to communities but they’d rather see us back in the Stone Age where cold temperatures killed people.

They’d rather see good people suffer, like here in Alberta where the government is killing jobs and prosperity, all for an agenda based on lies.

PETER: I am aware of the advent of fracking and when that took place.I worked for many years in the “patch” and on many wells that were fracked. I thought the sarcasm in my opening paragraph was obvious, but maybe I should have done better. I find much irony in the whole anti fracking crowd. And its a bit strange that some residents of NE Alberta have done a lot of squawking about water pollution there because of oil sands development. Funny that a couple hundred years ago they were caulking and patching their canoes with tars naturally oozing from the ground, or the banks of the Athabasca River. And of course you are right, its always about the money. Also to eliminate any doubt, I am PRO FRACKING.

David White fracking has been around since the 50s. Early explorers noted that the natives in the Niagara region would light up gas coming from a pond. All of the early oil discoveries, Mexico, Los Angeles, Saudi Arabia, Petrolia Ontario all were developed around oil seeps. I have seen gobbles of oil in a recently drilled water well in Soutwestern Ontario. No fracking anywhere around. The people objecting to fracking have absolutely no idea the technology behind the method. But hey if you are raising dollars on something why let the facts interfere with a good protest. As always follow the money in these things.

Could any of you Rebel readers offer me much needed help? My water well has so much gas in it you can burn it off at the kitchen tap. There can be no other reason for this other than fracking. How do I go about suing every oil company and fracking company for $millions$ because of the health risks and disruption to my life. When I die the cause will surely be this damn fracking that has contaminated my water well.

Now to reality. The well was drilled circa 1970. The excess gas was in the water the day the well was drilled, can be burned off at the tap at any time, and has not changed in almost 50 years. Fracking was in its infancy at the time, and there was certainly none around our property at the time. My meaningless opinion is that the Sauters in the vid clip are gouging for a quick dollar. In fact in a doc I saw a few years ago, it may have been Fracknation, some scumbag actually hooked a propane or gas line to his water well in an attempt to hoodwink the public into the belief that fracking had caused the problem. The real crime is having unscrupulous morons like Josh Fox and Michael Moore put this fraudulent crap on the airwaves for the eco fools to lap up and spread to the ill informed.

DARYL HERMAN happened to mention two of my “favorites” in his post. Saint Suzuki of Lotusland, and actor turned scientist, Leo DiCraprio. Could someone please arrange for their visit to my residence. I could give them a water burning demo. Then we could retire to the garage. I have an old Adirondak baseball bat in good shape. It would work well in convincing the “Saint” to never use his scare mongering climate propaganda falsities against our youth ever again. As for Leo, when we leave the garage I assure you he would be able to give a more accurate definition of a CHINOOK !!!

Open invitation to anyone who doubts what I have said about my well. Come see for yourselves.

As for our resident scientist, ANDREW STEPHENSON, what say you?

Has anyone in ON seen the latest government adds about Global Warming and how the Ontario government has a plan?
What fuggin plan does this inept government have? None. They just plan to implement a tax grab that will simply punish the average consumer and reward the actual polluters with carbon credits. What a gawd damn joke and an insult!!!

Len Vaness the pressure in an oil deposit is proportional to the confining pressure exerted by the overlying rock mass. In southern Ontario gas or oil deposits in the Silurian formation will have a pressure of 800 psi. Removing the oil or gas won’t change that pressure. The rock mass still wants to occupy the void. There is a thought that injecting fluids into a fault zone will reduce the energy required to have movement along the fault because the fluid lubricates the fault surfaces.This phenomena was observed in some geothermal operations.

And does anybody have a hope in Hell that the governments in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are listening to the truth?…. They have untold wealth beneath their feet but would rather take transfer payments from the rest of the country… Somehow echos the definition of being “leeches” doesn’t it?…

Hi Holly. That was another great video. I love how you explain the mind of a leftist.

A flawed study , i wonder if Mr Science-i mean Andrew was one of the scientists(LMAO) on this BS study?
commented 2016-07-11 01:12:59 -0400
The green kooks seem to ignore the most up front factoid about fracking , they claim all these negative consequences that seem to have just suddenly began popping up , they never once realized it has been done for many decades since they assumed it was some new technique since they had never heard of it before someone on the internet started preaching to them about it. Arrogance mixed with stupidity.

Great work!
Keep the fact-filled, accountability-centric, investigative reporting coming!

Daryl Herman,
Good post; some people just love the doomsday narrative for some psychological reason; so any ‘Chicken Little, the sky is falling’ hyperbole is music to their ears.
Bizarre and sickening.

Eco-activists must have used the same Fracking calculations that they used for Climate Change. Up dumbed Morons.

Historically, events that killed a lot of people were fueled by lies and or ignorance. There seems to be a lot of lies and ignorance regarding the environment these days, look to many deaths because of it.

Ezre Levant’s book; The Case For Fracking is an awesome read. If you really want to know the benefits Fracking would have to Canada, the U.S. and most other parts of the world, read Ezra’s book. It’s available here and on Amazon.

unfortunately the millennials believe any and everything they hear on social media or the internet. they question nothing ,everything is excepted as fact and truth. And they never listen to we the boomers that helped make their lives so easy and comfortable. no matter do what you will and see this country go down the drain

Why is it that all the IDIOTS of the world claim to be EXPERTS at whatever they dream up?! Like Suzuki, and DiCaprio – 2 of the stupidest, fraudulent Liars – and right away they are taken as the truth in these matters! Suzuki’s power, gas, and all services need to be cut off – then see what kind of shit comes out of that Fraudster.
These Cimatards need to be jailed for the fraud scam they are pulling off on the silly idiots who buy into all this “the sky is falling” bullshit!

Elton said, “… but some time later the corrected reports come out but of course it’s too late and the damage has already been done”

And also the media just happens to ignore reporting the correction. I have found that this often happens intentionally because the corrected document does not fit the media narrative.
commented 2016-07-10 17:52:23 -0400
This is typical outright lefty dishonesty but I’ve noticed another tactic they often use. It seems to me they often present flawed info in the form of biased surveys or research studies just long enough for the media to report it but some time later the corrected reports come out but of course it’s too late and the damage has already been done – if the new info even gets reported al all.

I have long-wondered why extracting oil, and the resulting lowering of pressure doesn’t cause tremors…but replacing oil and maintaining pressure seems to…

Eco-activists are of the same species of homo sapiens aberration known as neo-Marxists: ie. black lives matter savages, feminist fascists, LGBTQ-ETC. queers, Islamophiles, social justice warriors, and the whole array of putrid disease that is infecting Western Civilization and annihilating it.

I am super impressed with your reports HOLLY , as I along with many others that come on here work in the oil industries, as my daughter and granddaughters do
