Hope And Chicken

As expected, Hope is chickening out on the interview. She has no interest in an honest discussion – she simply wants to cut and paste and create a bunch of lies. That is how the crooks on the left operate. They can’t win a fair fight, so they cheat – about everything.

I won’t do the interview unless you produce citation showing these many other interviews you have already done. Context. I’ve asked 12 times now.

    Don’t worry Steve, I’ll interview you.

    So, how about this Global thingy, is it Warming or what?

    Do you ever find it annoying that people could just read your blog and learn a lot but can’t even be bothered? How about that?

        I’d love for you to confront Josh Fox over his fraudulent film.

        According to a 2012 ruling of the Texas District Court, this landowner conspired with a local consultant to:

        “…intentionally attach a garden hose to a gas vent – not to a water line – and then light and burn the gas from the end of the nozzle of the hose. The demonstration was not done for scientific study but to provide local and national news media a deceptive video, calculated to alarm the public into believing the water was burning … [and] alarm the EPA.”

          A judge already ruled that they committed fraud. All you are doing by defending them is admitting you have no issue with liars and frauds.

        • gator69 says:

          If you can find a judge that ruked he lied, yes.

          The court, having reviewed the law and evidence as well as motions, briefs and arguments of the counsel of this case denies plaintiffs section 27 Anti-Slapp motion to dismiss Range’s counter claims. The court references with concerns the actions of Steven Lipsky, under the advice or direction of Mrs Alicia Rich to intentionally attach a garden hose to a gas vent – not to a water line – and then light and burn the gas from the end of the nozzle of the hose. The demonstration was not done for scientific study but to provide local and national news media a deceptive video, calculated to alarm the public into believing the water was burning. There is further evidence that Rich knew the regional EPA administration and provided or assisted in providing additional mislead information (including the garden hose video) to alarm the EPA. More over the emails in question which refer to this deceptive garden hose demonstration as a “strategy” appear to support that a “meeting of the minds” took place and that a reasonable trier of fact could believe, together with other evidence, That elements of a conspiracy to defame Range exist.

          Therefore pursuant to Texas practice and Remedies code 27 as a finding of fact and conclusion of law, the court observes that Range has presented sufficient clear and specific evidence to maintain a prima facia case with regard to the counter claim against plaintiffs and the third party action against Lisa Rich in that a reasonable trier of fact could believe that a conspiracy to defame Range existed between Lipsky and Mrs Rich.

          How do you breathe without assistance? 😆

          The court rulinb has never been refuted. What part of that do you not get? It stands.

          And what about this?

          “The Lipskys reside in a 14,000 square-foot home on almost fourteen acres in the exclusive Silverado development in southwestern Parker County. In 2005, they drilled a water well to a depth of approximately 200 feet. The Trinity water aquifer that supplies water to the Lipskys’ water well had contained methane gas for many years before they drilled the well. For example, test results for the public water supply system in the adjacent Lake Country Acres subdivision have reflected the presence of natural gas in the water for decades. Indeed, one of the Lake Country Acres water wells contains a warning sign that reads “DANGER FLAMMABLE GAS.” In 2005 (four years before Range drilled the gas wells at issue), a water well drilled in Silverado, approximately 800 feet from the Lipskys’ water well, contained so much natural gas that it forced water out of the well without any pump, and also flared gas…

          “In March 2011, after an extensive two-day evidentiary hearing, the TRRC issued its Final Order finding and concluding that Range’s drilling operations did not cause or contribute to any contamination in the Lipskys’ water well. The TRRC concluded that the gas in the Lipskys’ water was from the Strawn formation, not the Barnett Shale. The Lipskys refused to attend the TRRC hearing, even though they received notice, filed a notice of appearance, participated in pre-hearing discovery, and hired experts to evaluate the source of the natural gas in the water. [The Lipskys’ experts actually agreed with the TRRC’s holding that Range’s hydraulic fracturing operations did not cause any alleged contamination and that Barnett Shale gas is not in the Lipskys’ water well.]”

          “While the TRRC investigation was underway, Mr. Lipsky had conversations with [Alisa] Rich in which he discussed wanting to contact the news media “to get Range to do something.” Rich is an environmental “consultant” who has a history of dishonesty and using false or misleading information to support her bias against oil and gas drilling, including manipulating “evidence” and publicly misrepresenting her credentials. In an August 12, 2010 email to Mr. Lipsky, Rich outlined a “strategy” in which she proposed staging a deceptive air test designed to create a non-existent imminent danger of explosion. The strategy also involved making and disseminating misleading videos purporting to show flaming water from a green water hose attached to the Lipskys’ water well. The green hose actually was attached to the gas vent on the water well as shown below.”

          This water contamination was determined by isotopic testing to be production gas from a nearby Range well. Yes, the Texas railroad commission, as fully purchased reps of the FF industry claims the contam was naturally occuring.

          Please read the deposition from Pecks Water drilling proving that is untrue.

          And the TRRC was found to be a bed of corruption:

          ….regard to the counter claim against plaintiffs and the third party action against Lisa Rich in that a reasonable trier of fact could believe that a conspiracy to defame Range existed between Lipsky and Mrs Rich.”

          There is only 1 case between Lipsky & Range.

          Again, tho you and CON media claim Steve, Alisa and Shyla have been found guilty of faking the contamination .. in reality THE CASE HAS NEVER BEEN HEARD.

          All you are doing is forwarding the accusations make by a FOSSIL FUEL company against their own water contamination victims.

      “so your continual unwillingness to admit your sources commit fraud proves you are a fraud an liar. According to a 2012 ruling of the Texas District Court, this landowner conspired with a local consultant to:

      You are claiming the Texas Supreme Court is a Fraud:
      “13-0928 (12/04/2014)
      In re Steven Lipsky
      from Parker County and the Fort Worth Court of Appeals
      For Lipsky and Shyla Lipsky: Brent M. Rosenthal, Dallas
      For Range Production and Range Resources: John H. Cayce, Fort Worth
      For consultant Alisa Rich: Shawn M. McCaskill, Dallas
      In this mandamus action arising from allegations that fracking contaminated a home-water supply, the principal issue is whether “clear and specific” evidence supporting defamation and conspiracy claims in order to thwart their dismissal requires a heightened proof standard. Lipsky and his wife, the homeowners, and Rich, an environmental consultant, moved under the Texas Citizens’ Participation Act to dismiss a lawsuit against them. Range, the minerals producer drilling near the Lipsky home, claimed Lipsky defamed the company by alleging it was corrupt and “owned” state oil-and-gas regulators and by fabricating a video showing a water hose’s end afire after he put a match to it. Range also alleged the Lipskys and Rich conspired to defame it. The Citizens’ Participation Act permits a suit to be dismissed if it was filed to stymie a defendant’s free-speech rights, but to avoid dismissal the plaintiff must present “clear and specific” evidence supporting the suit’s essential elements. The trial court denied the Lipskys’ and Rich’s dismissal motions. The court of appeals reversed in part, dismissing claims against Mrs. Lipsky and the consultant but permitting the suit against Steven Lipsky to proceed.

          How exactly do YOU THINK Steve put Range’s production gas IN his water well? Can you noodle that? He would have had to steal the gas from Range’s well and pump it into his own to fool the EPA .. can you ‘splain how that’s possible?

          “The Lipskys reside in a 14,000 square-foot home on almost fourteen acres in the exclusive Silverado development in southwestern Parker County. In 2005, they drilled a water well to a depth of approximately 200 feet. The Trinity water aquifer that supplies water to the Lipskys’ water well had contained methane gas for many years before they drilled the well. For example, test results for the public water supply system in the adjacent Lake Country Acres subdivision have reflected the presence of natural gas in the water for decades. Indeed, one of the Lake Country Acres water wells contains a warning sign that reads “DANGER FLAMMABLE GAS.” In 2005 (four years before Range drilled the gas wells at issue), a water well drilled in Silverado, approximately 800 feet from the Lipskys’ water well, contained so much natural gas that it forced water out of the well without any pump, and also flared gas…

          “In March 2011, after an extensive two-day evidentiary hearing, the TRRC issued its Final Order finding and concluding that Range’s drilling operations did not cause or contribute to any contamination in the Lipskys’ water well. The TRRC concluded that the gas in the Lipskys’ water was from the Strawn formation, not the Barnett Shale. The Lipskys refused to attend the TRRC hearing, even though they received notice, filed a notice of appearance, participated in pre-hearing discovery, and hired experts to evaluate the source of the natural gas in the water. [The Lipskys’ experts actually agreed with the TRRC’s holding that Range’s hydraulic fracturing operations did not cause any alleged contamination and that Barnett Shale gas is not in the Lipskys’ water well.]”

          “While the TRRC investigation was underway, Mr. Lipsky had conversations with [Alisa] Rich in which he discussed wanting to contact the news media “to get Range to do something.” Rich is an environmental “consultant” who has a history of dishonesty and using false or misleading information to support her bias against oil and gas drilling, including manipulating “evidence” and publicly misrepresenting her credentials. In an August 12, 2010 email to Mr. Lipsky, Rich outlined a “strategy” in which she proposed staging a deceptive air test designed to create a non-existent imminent danger of explosion. The strategy also involved making and disseminating misleading videos purporting to show flaming water from a green water hose attached to the Lipskys’ water well. The green hose actually was attached to the gas vent on the water well as shown below.”

          Dumbass, read the ruling…

          The court, having reviewed the law and evidence as well as motions, briefs and arguments of the counsel of this case denies plaintiffs section 27 Anti-Slapp motion to dismiss Range’s counter claims. The court references with concerns the actions of Steven Lipsky, under the advice or direction of Mrs Alicia Rich to intentionally attach a garden hose to a gas vent – not to a water line – and then light and burn the gas from the end of the nozzle of the hose. The demonstration was not done for scientific study but to provide local and national news media a deceptive video, calculated to alarm the public into believing the water was burning. There is further evidence that Rich knew the regional EPA administration and provided or assisted in providing additional mislead information (including the garden hose video) to alarm the EPA. More over the emails in question which refer to this deceptive garden hose demonstration as a “strategy” appear to support that a “meeting of the minds” took place and that a reasonable trier of fact could believe, together with other evidence, That elements of a conspiracy to defame Range exist.

          Therefore pursuant to Texas practice and Remedies code 27 as a finding of fact and conclusion of law, the court observes that Range has presented sufficient clear and specific evidence to maintain a prima facia case with regard to the counter claim against plaintiffs and the third party action against Lisa Rich in that a reasonable trier of fact could believe that a conspiracy to defame Range existed between Lipsky and Mrs Rich.

      • Jason Calley says:

        Hey Anto! “The religious zeal and logical inconsistency of the believers is just insane – literally, like arguing with an insane person.”

        I think that you are correct. It is — literally — like arguing with an insane person. They are insane in the most basic form of insanity; they are unable to correctly perceive reality. I see similar expressions of insanity throughout our society. The self-proclaimed “Progressives” are an example of insanity in the political sphere. You can find any number of examples of insanity in today’s higher education system.

        Why is this? Why has such a large percentage of people gone insane?

        My speculation is this. We know that the human mind is fluid and conforms itself to a large extent according to the shape of whatever container surrounds it. Take a child, let him be raised by wolves and past a certain age he will never recover. He will never become human in any normal sense. Having never been exposed to and been conditioned by human society, he will be, for pragmatic purposes, a wolf. We now find ourselves in a society where people have grown to adulthood increasingly insulated not only from the physical world of trees and grass and streams, but even insulated from the consequences of their own choices. We live in an air-bag world where all impacts are cushioned. We celebrate and support single mothers who refused to make the hard choice of only copulating with a responsible mate. We live in a world where children who do not (for whatever reason) learn in school are passed along to higher grades. We live in a world where “my feelings have been hurt” is more important than “was I in the wrong?” Several of the major industries in the country are based on make-believe (motion pictures, mainstream news, and foreign policy).

        Do the CAGW people seem insane? They are. If they were sane, logic and facts would sway them. They are also, sadly, part of a much larger crowd.

        • Disillusioned says:

          When I first began to become disillusioned by facts surrounding AGW, I was so entrenched in my beliefs it took me a couple years to become convinced. I kept looking for cracks in the skeptical arguments – but that exercise only led me to find more cracks in the AGW argument.

          I began to share what my studies led me to, with friends. Logically, I assumed ( but wrongly) that presenting the facts would change their beliefs, also.

          What happened next – I was shocked; shocked I tell you. It was as if their ears had been cut off and their eyeballs plucked out. They couldn’t hear, see, comprehend or accept anything I shared with or showed them.

          I had once been similarly brainwashed as they. But I had an open mind, and assumed that their minds were open also. All they needed was someone (like me) to present it to them (we were not getting it in the news). Not a chance. They could only recite what they had learned from the pack of wolves. They didn’t want to know about the science – and kept repeating the lie that 97% of the scientists around the globe believed, so I must be wrong. They would not, could not acknowledge anything I shared with them. After a few years, I gave up.

          Being brainwashed is one thing. The inability to de-program is quite another. So, perhaps not being able to learn from logic and facts is a form of insanity.

        • Jason Calley says:

          Hey Disillusioned! “Being brainwashed is one thing. The inability to de-program is quite another. ”

          I think you are right.

          We are all brainwashed to one degree or another, and on all matter of subjects. Like you, I initially had no real doubts about CAGW — but then again, at the no-doubts stage I had not done any research. All I knew on the subject was what I read or heard in popular press. Once I started looking in to it, I began to see the flaws.

          You make a good point. “The inability to de-program is quite another. ” Even admitting that we are all brainwashed, the sad fact is, there are many people who are unable to be de-programed. The one common denominator I see in that group is this. Those who cannot be de-programed seem to have a strong emotional barrier defending their belief system. Talk to someone about “what is the deepest point of the ocean” and they can respond impartially and unemotionally, even if they disagree with you. Talk with a CAGW supporter and chances are they will become angry, insulting and dismissive. How many times have you had this happen? You mention to someone that you do not think CO2 is a problem and their angry response is along the lines of “So you don’t care about pollution?! You would just as soon have all the oceans dead and poisons everywhere, huh?!” The emotional monkey-on-the-back of CAGW is, I think, the main reason why its supporters cannot discuss the subject rationally.

        • Disillusioned says:

          Thanks for the reply Jason.

          The ability to de-program is the ability to think for oneself.

        • gator69 says:

          Hey Jason! I was programmed as a young man, and had to break some of that programming when the facts proved me wrong. It is easier for some than others, and you are right, emotions have much to do with that.

          Humanity has left brained thinkers and right brained ‘thinkers’, both use both sides, but one side is almost always dominant. Left brained thinkers use logic and reason to make decisions, whereas right brained ‘thinkers’ lead with emotions and feelings. I am a left brained thinker almost to a fault, emotions are the last thing I consider when making decisions, but I do consider them. So for me, embracing an idea that is not supportable with logic is abhorrent, and when I am shown strong evidence that I am wrong, changing my mind is not a problem.

          I get emotional when idiots cannot see logic or reason.

          Hey gator, hey Disillusioned, I just wanted to put in a quick comment that I am grateful to have smart, rational adults (like you two) to interact with.

          Jason, you’re welcome. Wow, I almost don’t feel worthy of that. I still have a lot to learn. This is like a onion – six years on and I’m still becoming disillusioned. But the propagandists no longer intimidate me with their talking points like they once did. I know so much more than they do now; I know their “trained talking points” now, and I can almost predict which propaganda sites they’ll cite and quote from when they smear their propagandist feces around.

          The “cabal” (to borrow from the not-so-peaceful slandering propagandist) is powerful and scary; skeptics are bullied to shut-up by those who cannot risk losing cabal funding, tenure; they’re walking a tightrope. It is a crying shame. Very revealing interview here by one who has been taken down a notch at a time by the cabal: http://blog.heartland.org/2015/03/heartland-daily-podcast-david-legates-climate-witch-hunt/

          Still, CAGW as a hypothesis has fallen completely apart. And as Mother Nature continues giving her middle finger to the propagandists, it seems they just keep getting noisier, meaner and more slanderous. And the AGW-based regulations and taxes continue being introduced unabated. It is like the Twilight Zone. Up is down, down is up…SMH

        • Fat Tony says:

          Jason – that’s the first rational explanation I’ve heard for the rank stupidity that surrounds us – thanks.
          With CAGW, since I’d already heard (back in the ’70s I think…) that the human component of annual CO2 production was roughly 1/1000, I figured that, even if we eliminated all human CO2, we’d make bugger-all difference. So – CAGW was B/S

          You started out looking to find out who was financing Steve, and to expose him. Yet later on when someone brought it up, you denied saying anything about payment from oil industry – and changed it – that you said he has been “trained” with oil talking points.

    I am not sure how she is now living with herself.
    She either now realizes just how ignorant of Climate she is or she already new the facts, but chooses to ignore them and push her beliefs.
    Either way she is ignorant or corrupt, it can’t be much fun living with that, but maybe being as it is religous type zeal she can rationalise it as the “Means Justifying the End” and we all know where that leads.

    • Gail Combs says:

      I would not be surprise if Hope is well aware that scientifically she doesn’t have a leg to stand on. If she thought ‘the science’ was solid she would be confident she could win an un-rigged debate.

      However truth is not a high priority with the militant left. Transforming the West into a third world communist country is the priority. This is a much higher priority than ethics or truth. It is why you can not reason with the militant left. It is why skeptics are blocked from the MSM and even from comments. It is why skeptic scientists are savaged not only by the MSM but by Congressmen. It is why Voter Fraud was used to install a Communist in the White House who ignores the Constitution and why Congress goes along.

      BACKGROUND
      As Dr Tim Ball pointed out Overpopulation [is] The Fallacy Behind The Fallacy Of Global Warming The fear in government circles goes all the way back to ~1964 through ~1974 when there was a world grain crisis.

      If you look at the 1974 CIA report “A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems” it tells you population outstripping food was a very real worry.

      pg 5
      Since 1972, the grain crisis has intensified …Since 1969 the storage of grain has decreased from 600 million metric tons to less than 100 million metric tons – a 30 day supply… many governments have gone to great lengths to hide their agricultural predicaments from other countries as well as from their own people…
      pg 2
      Populations and the cost per hectare for technological investment grew exponentially. The world quietly ignored the warning provided by the 1964 crop faliure and raced to keep ahead of a growing world population through massive investments in energy, technology, and biology….
      [list of crop failures]
      Climate is now a critical factor. The politics of food will become the central issue of every government…..

      pg 9
      The archaeologists and climatotologists document a rather grim history… There is considerable evidence that these empires may not have been undone by barbarian invaders but by climatic change…. has tied several of these declines to specific global cool periods, major and minor, that affected global atmospheric circulation and brought wave upon wave of drought to formerly rich agricultural lands…

      At the same time that CIA report was being written The Club of Rome report titled The Limits to Growth was produced in 1972. This was the same year Dr George Kukla and Dr. Robert Matthews alerted President Richard Nixon the world might return to a Little Ice Age. Nixon setup a Panel on the Present Interglacial involving the State Department and other agencies.
      “A persistent concern of Lamb and others was that the world might return to a Little Ice Age like that of 300 years ago. But the improving knowledge of glacial history, and especially the apparent brevity of warm interglacials, prompted anxiety about a full-blown ice age.” — Nigel Calder. link

      QUOTES by Paul Ehrlich and his buddy John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar from that same time period.
      Note that Anna Ehrlich, paul’s wife is a member of the Club of Rome. This is the group Hope is taking direction from whether she knows it or not.

      “Giving society cheap, abundant energy … would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun. – Paul Ehrlich, “An Ecologist’s Perspective on Nuclear Power” — May/June 1978 issue of Federation of American Scientists Public Issue Report

      “We’ve already had too much economic growth in the US. Economic growth in rich countries like ours is the disease, not the cure.”
      – Paul Ehrlich, author of Population Bomb and Population Explosion.

      “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970’s and 1980’s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.” — Paul Ehrlich – the first sentence of his 1968 “The Population Bomb”

      “This vast tragedy, however, is nothing compared to the nutritional disaster that seems likely to overtake humanity in the 1970s (or, at the latest, the 1980s) … A situation has been created that could lead to a billion or more people starving to death.” — Paul Ehrlich, “The End of Affluence” (1974), p.21

      ““A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States.” — John Holdren (1973), Obama’s Science Czar
      http://www-formal.stanford.edu/jmc/progress/quotes.html

      These quotes were made BEFORE CAGW. CAGW was just the whip used to drive the sheeple in the direction the elite had decided we should go. So we are now stuck with plans made back in the 1970’s to rein in economic and population growth.

      “It is a campaign not for abundance but for austerity. It is a campaign not for more freedom but for less. Strangest of all, it is a campaign not just against other people, but against ourselves.” — George Monbiot, UK Ecojournalist

      • NancyG says:

        Which population are they talking about becoming a problem? I keep hearing about countries like Greece or Japan having a 0 birth rate, the US has 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day which means they’ll be dying off over the next 20 years and they were 25% of the US population. If you do a search on the internet for US birth rates it has fallen for 6 years to a level below that which is needed for a stable population. So which countries are overpopulating, third world countries? We know that industrialization lowers birth rates, yet the same people crying about overpopulation don’t want third world countries to industrialize. Another example of the elites creating the problem they whine about?

        • Gail Combs says:

          I agree with you Nancy. The best method of population control is a high standard of living. Most first world countries have zero or negative population growth. That is why they are importing people from third world countries.

          The Eugenics movement goes all the way back to the Fabians, the Webbs, Shaw and Margaret Sanger. More important it goes back to Huxley and UNESCO link

          The Eugenicists are into forced sterilization. There are plenty of sites commenting on the subject. Such as this one – link

          It sounded like a kook site so I went looking for validating evidence. I found it.

          The USDA’s funding development of a spermicidal corn by Epicyte was the easy one. (Most links are now gone from the internet.)

          A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto….

          In Mexico, people are distressed by the possibility that biopharmaceutical corn could be introduced in the country. Silvia Ribeiro, of the ETC organization, expresses great annoyance about the California-based company Epicyte, which ostentatiously declared having developed a spermicidal corn to be used as a contraceptive.

          Ribeiro stated in La Jornada: “The potential of spermicidal corn as a biological weapon is outrageous, since it easily interbreeds with other varieties, is capable of going undetected and could lodge itself at the very core of indigenous and farming cultures. We have witnessed the execution of repeated sterilization campaigns performed against indigenous communities. This method is certainly much more difficult to trace.”
          http://noblelie.com/2009/03/10/gmo-population-control-spermicidal-corn/

          The more interesting validation was a UN population survey.

          …However, until the late 1980s there was little evidence of any change in fertility. Since then, many changes have occurred in sub-Saharan Africa. Although population growth rates remain high, signs of reductions in fertility are appearing in several populations once regarded as having little or no prospect of lower levels of reproduction in the short term….

          Barney Cohen reviews levels, differentials, and trends in fertility for more than 30 countries from 1960 to 1992. He finds evidence of fertility decline in Botswana, Kenya, and Zimbabwe, confirming the basic results of the DHS. What is new here though is his finding that the fertility decline appears to have occurred across cohorts of women at all parities, rather than just among women at middle and higher parities, as might have been expected on the basis of experience in other parts of the world. He also presents evidence that fertility may have begun to fall in parts of Nigeria and possibly in Senegal….

          HMMmmm, From the link above on forced sterilizations:

          At present, we are doing research on the Tetanus Vaccines that were given last March 1994 by our Dept. of Health to women of reproductive age. Many of the women complained of bleeding (miscarriages) and allergies. We got alarmed recently when we received communications from Magally Llaguno that the vaccine in Mexico contained hCG . . .

          According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, which is part of the United Nations, scientists from the organization are developing vaccines specifically to damage fertility as a method of contraception. A suggested ingredient for the vaccine is tween 80 (polysorbate 80): “In a preferred embodiment the vaccine comprises oil, preferably a biodegradable oil such as squalene oil. Typically, the vaccine is prepared using an adjuvant concentrate which contains lecithin in squalene oil. The aqueous solution glycoprotein is typically a phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) solution, and additionally preferably contains Tween 80.” (Fertility Impairing Vaccine And Methods of Use’ This application claims the benefit of U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/070,375, filed January 2,1998, U. S. Provisional Application No. 60/071,406, filed January 15,1998.)…

    HopeForpeace is incapable of discussing science. After ridiculing her a number of times, I posted a comment full of science showing more natural solar forcing during the period of late 20th century warming than ghg forcing.
    She dodged and obfuscated, doing a clown dance totally avoiding the science that I posted, and accused me of not being able to discuss science. I finally boiled it down to which forcing numbers were larger, the natural forcing or the ghg forcing, and again, she refused to answer.

          The court, having reviewed the law and evidence as well as motions, briefs and arguments of the counsel of this case denies plaintiffs section 27 Anti-Slapp motion to dismiss Range’s counter claims. The court references with concerns the actions of Steven Lipsky, under the advice or direction of Mrs Alicia Rich to intentionally attach a garden hose to a gas vent – not to a water line – and then light and burn the gas from the end of the nozzle of the hose. The demonstration was not done for scientific study but to provide local and national news media a deceptive video, calculated to alarm the public into believing the water was burning. There is further evidence that Rich knew the regional EPA administration and provided or assisted in providing additional mislead information (including the garden hose video) to alarm the EPA. More over the emails in question which refer to this deceptive garden hose demonstration as a “strategy” appear to support that a “meeting of the minds” took place and that a reasonable trier of fact could believe, together with other evidence, That elements of a conspiracy to defame Range exist.

          Therefore pursuant to Texas practice and Remedies code 27 as a finding of fact and conclusion of law, the court observes that Range has presented sufficient clear and specific evidence to maintain a prima facia case with regard to the counter claim against plaintiffs and the third party action against Lisa Rich in that a reasonable trier of fact could believe that a conspiracy to defame Range existed between Lipsky and Mrs Rich.

          Here’s the facts:
          “The Lipskys reside in a 14,000 square-foot home on almost fourteen acres in the exclusive Silverado development in southwestern Parker County. In 2005, they drilled a water well to a depth of approximately 200 feet. The Trinity water aquifer that supplies water to the Lipskys’ water well had contained methane gas for many years before they drilled the well. For example, test results for the public water supply system in the adjacent Lake Country Acres subdivision have reflected the presence of natural gas in the water for decades. Indeed, one of the Lake Country Acres water wells contains a warning sign that reads “DANGER FLAMMABLE GAS.” In 2005 (four years before Range drilled the gas wells at issue), a water well drilled in Silverado, approximately 800 feet from the Lipskys’ water well, contained so much natural gas that it forced water out of the well without any pump, and also flared gas…

          “In March 2011, after an extensive two-day evidentiary hearing, the TRRC issued its Final Order finding and concluding that Range’s drilling operations did not cause or contribute to any contamination in the Lipskys’ water well. The TRRC concluded that the gas in the Lipskys’ water was from the Strawn formation, not the Barnett Shale. The Lipskys refused to attend the TRRC hearing, even though they received notice, filed a notice of appearance, participated in pre-hearing discovery, and hired experts to evaluate the source of the natural gas in the water. [The Lipskys’ experts actually agreed with the TRRC’s holding that Range’s hydraulic fracturing operations did not cause any alleged contamination and that Barnett Shale gas is not in the Lipskys’ water well.]”

          “While the TRRC investigation was underway, Mr. Lipsky had conversations with [Alisa] Rich in which he discussed wanting to contact the news media “to get Range to do something.” Rich is an environmental “consultant” who has a history of dishonesty and using false or misleading information to support her bias against oil and gas drilling, including manipulating “evidence” and publicly misrepresenting her credentials. In an August 12, 2010 email to Mr. Lipsky, Rich outlined a “strategy” in which she proposed staging a deceptive air test designed to create a non-existent imminent danger of explosion. The strategy also involved making and disseminating misleading videos purporting to show flaming water from a green water hose attached to the Lipskys’ water well. The green hose actually was attached to the gas vent on the water well as shown below.”

    Remember guys the ‘logic’ of the militant left is not objective logic.

    The Philosophy Of Karl Marx
    The philosophical bases of Marx’s thought were laid early and remained unchanged throughout his life. As a student, Marx accepted the philosophy of Hegel as the only sound and adequate explanation of the universe…..

    Thus, Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made. The universe and all events therein existed and took place only in the mind, and any change was a change in ideas….

    I tangle with one of the professors pushing this crap at Louisiana State University. He truly believed there was no objective reality! …That was until I told him to go lay on the R/R tracks and see if the noon train would come.

    _______________________________________
    Steve/Tony’s reply: “I expect our discussion to remain intact, streamed live, and be posted on YouTube for posterity. I’ve seen the work you and your friends do. You cut and paste to create lies and trash people. It is dishonest, cowardly and disgusting behavior, and I am not going to enable it.”

    MY reply: “”You started this discussion with some of the most viscous attacks I have ever seen.” Steve/Tony
    Please cite that (third time I’ve asked), I would like to see what you are calling “vicious”.
    Yes – you said that – HOW WILL you S T O P O T H E R S from recording and manipulating the livestream .. is my repeated question ..

    Also if you look at my work, I think you’ll see I actually don’t post much like that .. as opposed to people like Phelim Mcaleer who make their living doing that.
    I’m more than happy to be the first to livestream an interview with you….
    or maybe you can still clear up your claim that you do this “all of the time’ when in fact you can’t produce one shred of evidence that is true??

    (2) ” and be posted on YouTube for posterity.” Ok .. I missed that .. once you put it on youtube you know any dork can download and process it?

    THAT you don’t mind???
    _______________________________________________
    Steve/Tony:
    I want you to put a prominent disclaimer up that the video is intended to remain intact, unedited, and that any other usage is dishonest and not authorized. I want clearly stated verbal expectations that this is intended to be an honest discussion, not propaganda. I also want the discussion to begin with a disclosure by both of us of any energy industry ties, organized political ties, and funding sources.
    __________________________________________________________
    Hope:
    Anyone can use the material for non-profit, educational purposes only, even if we put that disclaimer.
    Your side is just as likely to misuse it as mine .. look at the work of Phelim Mcaleer, etc… yet I have no such requirements, nor does anyone else make such requirements.
    And again, I am waiting for the citation from other interviews since you ‘do this all the time”. I count 9 times I’ve asked now.
    ” I also want the discussion to begin with a disclosure by both of us of any energy industry ties, organized political ties, and funding sources.”
    Not a problem for me. I think your funding come from selling the talking points on your website, it doesn’t change the fact that you are a well trained fossil fuel industry talking points repeater.
    What I will do in the interview is go over the origin of the talking points you use, and allow you to explain how you came up with them apart from ever hearing them at Watts or from Heartland, SPPI etc. You can tell us how you came to this thinking in the conservative media vacuum you claim you live in.
    It will be GREAT!
    ALSO IF I put that disclaimer I will state “Steve/Tony Requires” this .. I have no such requirement. ____________________________________________________
    S/T:
    Good. I want the disclaimer clearly displayed. I want a live link at the time of the interview too, so that I can verify it is being broadcast. I have zero trust in the integrity of climate alarmists, because I don’t think most of you have any.

    You are going to be quite surprised with I pop your bubble of ignorance and prejudice. There are many very bad people in this debate – and they are all on your side.
    ____________________________________________________
    Hope:
    “and be posted on YouTube for posterity”
    So you understand once I post it on yourtube, anyone can use it for non-profit educational purposes. And you seem ok w/ that.
    And again, I am waiting for the citation from other interviews since you ‘do this all the time”.
    I count 10 times I’ve asked now.
    I’d like to see that context, thanks.
    _________________________________________________________
    S/T:
    I have explained my terms and conditions. What part of that isn’t clear for you? I expect you to write a permanently displayed and clear disclaimer that the interview is intended to be kept intact, and any other use is a violation of the agreement made between us.
    ____________________________________________________________
    Hope:
    Yes, and I have said said repeatedly – that does NOT LEGALLY STOP people from USING THE CONTENT for NON- PROFIT, EDUCATIONAL purposes!!
    You are a well known name. It is Impossible legally and reasonably that the disclaimer you ask for will stop people using the interview!
    What part of that isn’t clear for you?
    And I have no such requirement, so I will make it clear that it is you alone who thinks they have the power to stop people from using the interview for educational, non-profit citation. I’m not going to defend your inane request.
    “And again, I am waiting for the citation from other interviews since you ‘do this all the time”. ”
    I count 11 times I’ve asked now.
    _______________________________________________________________
    S/T:
    Is it possible for you to simply do what I ask without applying your defective interpretations?
    The interview will not turn out as you hope, and you and your nutty friends will try to chop and spin it into something it wasn’t. I wan’t to be completely clear that you are being total slimeballs for doing that.
    If you think I am lying about doing interviews, please bring it up in our live talk.
    ___________________________________________________________________
    Hope:
    “Is it possible for you to simply do what I ask without applying your defective interpretations?”
    Is it possible for you to work up some reason?
    ” and any other use is a violation of the agreement made between us.”
    I can’t take responsibility for making sure no one uses the footage. Neither do I support trying to ban people from using the material for non-profit educational purposes. I will not be responsible for it’s use.
    I am willing to do the interview and discuss and post the “Steve/Tony says you can’t use this material for any reason, even non-profit educational purposes” warning on the video. But I’ll not be held responsible for what will undoubtedly occur – people will download and use the footage.
    I want in writing from you that I am not responsible for the content once posted on youtube. We have NO agreement about it’s use.
    ” I wan’t to be completely clear that you are being total slimeballs for doing that.”
    Is that a sentence? Please translate. Doing what?
    I won’t do the interview unless you produce citation showing these many other interviews you have already done. Context. I’ve asked 12 times now.
    ____________________________________________________
    S/T:
    You are looking for material to hack into a hit piece. I won’t provide that for you.
    ___________________________________________________
    Hope:
    No, I am trying to help you to see reality.You asked me to make an agreement with you that no one can or should make. You seem unable to access simple critical thinking – anyone can reuse the material and it’s inappropriate to imagine I can stop them or should be held responsible if they do.
    I also understand you fibbed about previous interviews. I can imagine now why there may be none.
    Offer stands, I’d be happy to be the first to post an interview of you. I will add the disclaimer to the entire video and give it context (I myself do not even agree with it). We can do a live skype I record (and anyone else watching CAN also), I will post it as you requested on youtube with the disclaimer.
    I will NOT be held responsible when people laugh at the idea that you can stop them using the material and they will use the material. That’s the real world Steve/Tony. (again, it would be great if you could just answer what you go by)

    This is four parts to keep links from kicking the comment into moderation.
    Antarctica:
    The Antarctic is more important than the Arctic because the sea ice is much closer to the equator at all times of the year and therefore has 2X to 5X times as much effect on Albedo. The Open ocean in the Arctic is actually a heat loss. Therefore the best configureation for cooling the planet is what we currently see, less sea ice in the Arctic more ice in the Antarctic. Also the West Wind Drift is a wind driven current so the changes in the extent of the sea ice changes the course of the Humboldt, Malvinas and Benguela Currents.

    <b.Record Sea Ice 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015
    “Sea ice surrounding Antarctica hit a record high in August [2013] and is on track for another record-breaking month in September. Clocking in at a stunning 7.2 million square miles (18.7 million square kilometers), last month’s sea ice extent was 4.5 percent above the 1981 to 2010 average and the largest extent since record-keeping started in 1979… the growing ice pack has already smashed the all-time record ice extent set in September 2012. This year’s massive sea ice reached 7.53 million square miles (19.51 million square km) on Sept. 14, 2013, — Antarctica Sea Ice Hitting Record Highs

    “The January Southern Hemisphere sea ice extent was 7.46 million square km (2.88 million square miles), 2.30 million square km (890,000 square miles), or 44.57 percent, above the 1981-2010 average. This was the largest January Southern Hemisphere sea ice extent on record and surpassed the previous record that occurred in 2008 by 580,000 square km (220,000 square miles), which is approximately the size of Madagascar.

      “The record sea ice doesn’t contradict global warming. Because Antarctic sea ice encircles a frozen continent, the factors controlling its growth are complex, and include winds, warming air temperatures and even the ozone hole. Wind plays a greater role the size of the ice pack than air temperature or ocean currents, according to a study published in the Nov. 11, 2012, issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The fierce circumpolar winds carry frigid air from the continent to the sea, freezing the ocean’s surface and pushing the ice around. The August ice surge was likely due to weather patterns that favored more ice, the Antarctic Sun reported. ”

          “The Lipskys reside in a 14,000 square-foot home on almost fourteen acres in the exclusive Silverado development in southwestern Parker County.

Indeed, one of the Lake Country Acres water wells contains a warning sign that reads “DANGER FLAMMABLE GAS.” In 2005 (four years before Range drilled the gas wells at issue), a water well drilled in Silverado, approximately 800 feet from the Lipskys’ water well, contained so much natural gas that it forced water out of the well without any pump, and also flared gas…

    STUDY #1
    Mid to late Holocene sea-level reconstruction of Southeast Vietnam using beachrock and beach-ridge deposits

    ….backshore deposits along the tectonically stable south-eastern Vietnamese coast document Holocene sea level changes…..reconstructed for the last 8000 years….The rates of sea-level rise decreased sharply after the rapid early Holocene rise and stabilized at a rate of 4.5 mm/year between 8.0 and 6.9 ka. Southeast Vietnam beachrocks reveal that the mid-Holocene sea-level highstand slightly above + 1.4 m was reached between 6.7 and 5.0 ka, with a peak value close to + 1.5 m around 6.0 ka….

    Translation the sea level was up to 1.5 meters higher than today in a tectonically stable area ~5000 years ago to 2000 years ago.

    STUDY #2
    Sea-level highstand recorded in Holocene shoreline deposits on Oahu, Hawaii

    Unconsolidated carbonate sands and cobbles on Kapapa Island, windward Oahu, are 1.4-2.8 (+ or – 0.25) m above present mean sea level (msl)…we interpret the deposit to be a fossil beach or shoreline representing a highstand of relative sea level during middle to late Holocene time. Calibrated radiocarbon dates of coral and mollusc samples, and a consideration of the effect of wave energy setup, indicate that paleo-msl was at least 1.6 (+ or – 0.45) m above present msl prior to 3889-3665 cal. yr B.P, possibly as early as 5532-5294 cal. yr B.P., and lasted until at least 2239-1940 cal. yr B.P

    This study shows a sea level highstand ~1.6 meter above the present level from ~5500 years ago to 2000 years ago.

    THE HOLOCENE DEPOSITIONAL SYSTEM
    Partially abutted against the Pleistocene barrier island/lagoonal system III, there is the Holocene depositional system. This unit is attributable to the Santos Transgression of Suguio & Martin (1978), along the State of São Paulo coastline, or to the Last Transgression of Bittencourt et al. (1979) along the State of Bahia coastline, being similar to the barrier island/lagoonal system IV of Villwock et al. (1986), along the State of Rio Grande do Sul coastline.

    This system is related to the post-glacial transgressive episode whose culmination stage was attained about 5.1 ky BP, when a barrier island alignment was formed parallel to the shoreline, while drainage net was drowned. The subsequent regressive episode promoted the barrier island progradation following the lagoonal basin silting.

    The paleoshorelines limited by ancient cliffs carved within Pleistocene terraces, presently representing the inner limit of the Holocene terrace, shows that this sea-level reached about 4m above the present one. Several terraces situated in different altitudes, and truncation of past morphological features nowadays observed on Holocene deposits, as well as along present lagoonal margins suggest that small scale sea-level oscillations occurred during the last 5 ky….

    This study shows a sea level highstand ~ 4 meters above the present level about ~5000 years ago. With sea level oscillating since then. Not only has the sea levels have dropped since the Holocene Optimum the evidence shows that “warmer paleotemperatures were favourable for great proliferation of mollusks in the area”

    Holocene sea-level change and ice-sheet history in the Vestfold Hills, East Antarctica

    A new Holocene sea-level record from the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica, has been obtained by dating the lacustrine–marine and marine–lacustrine transitions that occur in sediment cores from lakes which were formerly connected to the sea. From an elevation of ∼7.5 m 8000 yr ago, relative sea-level rose to a maximum ∼9 m above present sea-level 6200 yr ago. Since then, sea-level has fallen monotonically until the present….

    The above is a RELATIVE sea level. The area is not tectonically stable because the area has isostatic uplift in response to deglaciation from the Wisconsin Ice Age. The same applies to the following study.

    Ice free Arctic Ocean, an Early Holocene analogue

    Abstract
    Extensive systems of wave generated beach ridges along the North Greenland coasts show that these areas once saw seasonally open water. In addition to beach ridges, large amounts of striated boulders in and on the marine sediments from the same period also indicate that the ocean was open enough for ice bergs to drift along the shore and drop their loads. Presently the North Greenland coastline is permanently beleaguered by pack ice, and ice bergs are very rare and locked up in the sea ice. Predictions of the rapidly decreasing sea ice in the Arctic Ocean generally point to this area as the last to become ice free in summer. We therefore suggest that the occurrence of wave generated shores and abundant ice berg dropped boulders indicate that the Arctic Ocean was nearly free of sea ice in the summer at the time when they were formed. The beach ridges occur as isostatically raised “staircases”, and C14-dated curves for relative sea level change show that they were formed in the Early Holocene. A large set of samples of molluscs from beach ridges and marine sediments were collected in the summer of 2007, and are presently being dated to give a precise dating of the ice free interval. Preliminary results indicate that it fell within the interval from c. 8.5 to c. 6 ka – being progressively shorter from south to north. We therefore conclude that for a period in the Early Holocene, probably for a millenium or more, the Arctic Ocean was free of sea ice at least for shorter periods in the summer….

    Temperature and precipitation history of the Arctic

    …. Solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present) ~11 ka ago and has been decreasing since then, primarily in response to the precession of the equinoxes. The extra energy elevated early Holocene summer temperatures throughout the Arctic 1-3°C above 20th century averages, enough to completely melt many small glaciers throughout the Arctic, although the Greenland Ice Sheet was only slightly smaller than at present. Early Holocene summer sea ice limits were substantially smaller than their 20th century average, and the flow of Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean was substantially greater. As summer solar energy decreased in the second half of the Holocene, glaciers re-established or advanced, sea ice expanded…

    A new approach for reconstructing glacier variability based on lake sediments recording input from more than one glacier January 2012

    …. A multi-proxy numerical analysis demonstrates that it is possible to distinguish a glacier component in the ~ 8000-yr-long record, based on distinct changes in grain size, geochemistry, and magnetic composition…. This signal is …independently tested through a mineral magnetic provenance analysis of catchment samples. Minimum glacier input is indicated between 6700–5700 cal yr BP, probably reflecting a situation when most glaciers in the catchment had melted away, whereas the highest glacier activity [growth] is observed around 600 and 200 cal yr BP. During the local Neoglacial interval (~ 4200 cal yr BP until present), five individual periods of significantly reduced glacier extent are identified at ~ 3400, 3000–2700, 2100–2000, 1700–1500, and ~ 900 cal yr BP….

The green hose actually was attached to the gas vent on the water well as shown below.”

      Ummm “Sweety” is Gator69 .. he says that’s the British spelling. The misspelling of vicious was Steve Goddard, as I already showed . you did I misspell “hilarious” or “scientist”? Please excuse me.

      • gator69 says:

        Say what you want liar.

        The court, having reviewed the law and evidence as well as motions, briefs and arguments of the counsel of this case denies plaintiffs section 27 Anti-Slapp motion to dismiss Range’s counter claims. The court references with concerns the actions of Steven Lipsky, under the advice or direction of Mrs Alicia Rich to intentionally attach a garden hose to a gas vent – not to a water line – and then light and burn the gas from the end of the nozzle of the hose. The demonstration was not done for scientific study but to provide local and national news media a deceptive video, calculated to alarm the public into believing the water was burning. There is further evidence that Rich knew the regional EPA administration and provided or assisted in providing additional mislead information (including the garden hose video) to alarm the EPA. More over the emails in question which refer to this deceptive garden hose demonstration as a “strategy” appear to support that a “meeting of the minds” took place and that a reasonable trier of fact could believe, together with other evidence, That elements of a conspiracy to defame Range exist.

        Therefore pursuant to Texas practice and Remedies code 27 as a finding of fact and conclusion of law, the court observes that Range has presented sufficient clear and specific evidence to maintain a prima facia case with regard to the counter claim against plaintiffs and the third party action against Lisa Rich in that a reasonable trier of fact could believe that a conspiracy to defame Range existed between Lipsky and Mrs Rich.

        What was that about Lipsky not being involved? Another lie? 😆

          “The Lipskys reside in a 14,000 square-foot home on almost fourteen acres in the exclusive Silverado development in southwestern Parker County. In 2005, they drilled a water well to a depth of approximately 200 feet. The Trinity water aquifer that supplies water to the Lipskys’ water well had contained methane gas for many years before they drilled the well. For example, test results for the public water supply system in the adjacent Lake Country Acres subdivision have reflected the presence of natural gas in the water for decades. Indeed, one of the Lake Country Acres water wells contains a warning sign that reads “DANGER FLAMMABLE GAS.” In 2005 (four years before Range drilled the gas wells at issue), a water well drilled in Silverado, approximately 800 feet from the Lipskys’ water well, contained so much natural gas that it forced water out of the well without any pump, and also flared gas…

          “In March 2011, after an extensive two-day evidentiary hearing, the TRRC issued its Final Order finding and concluding that Range’s drilling operations did not cause or contribute to any contamination in the Lipskys’ water well. The TRRC concluded that the gas in the Lipskys’ water was from the Strawn formation, not the Barnett Shale. The Lipskys refused to attend the TRRC hearing, even though they received notice, filed a notice of appearance, participated in pre-hearing discovery, and hired experts to evaluate the source of the natural gas in the water. [The Lipskys’ experts actually agreed with the TRRC’s holding that Range’s hydraulic fracturing operations did not cause any alleged contamination and that Barnett Shale gas is not in the Lipskys’ water well.]”

          “While the TRRC investigation was underway, Mr. Lipsky had conversations with [Alisa] Rich in which he discussed wanting to contact the news media “to get Range to do something.” Rich is an environmental “consultant” who has a history of dishonesty and using false or misleading information to support her bias against oil and gas drilling, including manipulating “evidence” and publicly misrepresenting her credentials. In an August 12, 2010 email to Mr. Lipsky, Rich outlined a “strategy” in which she proposed staging a deceptive air test designed to create a non-existent imminent danger of explosion. The strategy also involved making and disseminating misleading videos purporting to show flaming water from a green water hose attached to the Lipskys’ water well.

          I’m surprised Steve/Tony lets you spam his board like that.

          You posted the same Range Resources claim over and over.

          “Prima Facia means that until the court ruling is overturned, it stands, moron.”

          Sad, sad ignorance. The case has never been heard, gator. You can spam this board 1 million times, all it proves is once a person is indoctrinated by fossil fuel talking points there is no help for them.

          Sad is you. We have given you the court documents showing Lipsky conspired to commit fraud, and then committed fraud. You have nothing to refute this and keep defending proven liars and frauds.

          Nice! 😆

        • Gail Combs says:

          Hope really should not comment on things she has no knowledge of like US law. As you said Mr. Lipsky and Ms. Rich were found to have conspired to mislead.

          All a higher court does is look at whether the lower court followed procedure.

          @Gail .. “As you said Mr. Lipsky and Ms. Rich were found to have conspired to mislead. ”

          Would you consider reviewing the evidence I posted, instead of just listening to this person?

          There are many cites, you can read about Steve’s case which has never benn heard.

          I’d like to see if any of you can face truth.
          __________________________________________________

          @Gator:

          No .. if you did any real research you would find this case has never been heard and the Loftin ruling was on procedure only.

          But, again, once you have bought the FF industry propaganda you can’t be disabused of it:

          “A little more than two weeks later, on February 16, 2012, Loftin, who is up for re-election, issued a second, devastating ruling against the Lipskys. Though they could not sue Range in his court, Range could countersue the Lipskys. Range argued that Lipsky and Rich were participants in a civil conspiracy to sully Range’s name by making false statements to the media and providing a “misleading” video of a flaming hose to the EPA. It was all a hoax, the company said.”
          http://www.dallasobserver.com/2012-04-26/news/fire-in-the-hole/5/

          “Loftin says Range can sue Lipsky in his court. ”
          http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/unfairpark/2012/05/incumbent_parker_county_judge.php

          “Loftin made his remarks in an order, signed Thursday, denying a motion by Lipsky and Rich to dismiss Range Resources’ multimillion-dollar lawsuit”
          http://www.star-telegram.com/article3830407.html

          If you simply read the “case events” from your own cite, you can divine this.

    “Dumb bitch still has not read the source material.” Gator69

    In fact, I’ve read far more about the case than you have – have you read the Writ? All of the depositions? Richter, Rich, Pecks? Which is the Driller, Gator?

    What did that driller state under oath about methane in the well?

    Who actually put the hose on?

    Did Lipspky contact the EPA before or after Rich’s email?

    Have you been TO the WELL twice to FILM it?

    I count 16X you posted Range Resources accusations against their own water contamination victims.

    And I bet you believe you so not forward fossil fuel industry talking points.

    And though you may not be able to understand a very complicated lawsuit – and you may continue to claim that Loftin heard the case, not the Anti-Slapp procedure case – and you may disparage like a 9 year old anyone who tries to help you …

    .. you can not explain HOW Steve STOLE Range’s production gas, contained it, then pumped it into his water well to fool the EPA.

    Now . that won’t STOP you from posting Range’s industry talking points .. but wasn’t that my point from the beginning?

    The Big LIE that oil companies are funding skeptics, when in fact its the alarmists being funded by them. It was grants from Shell and BP that established the CRU. Greenpeace, heavily funded and have oil executives on their board. Stanford received 100 million for climate research. Union of Concerned Scientists received oil money. The climategate e-mails showed Jones soliciting money from oil companies. The list is endless. Just a few examples, for a more in-depth view of the BIG LIE see……..

    http://www.climatedepot.com/2013/07/24/the-big-lie-sceptics-funded-by-big-oil-no-the-alarmists-are/

    Hope is resting her case on oil company funded propanganda when in fact they all have statements supporting AGW. They stand to gain billions by increased natural gas sales. Its absolutely ludicrous to claim they are finding skeptics. They try to link scientists like Soon to oil money that is given to the institution they work. Its their last leg to stand on and its wobbling.
