Shale gas more is now less. We pay

 I came across an fracking article this week and read it over two times. It is an opinion of a report released on the amount of natural gas that may or may not be under us. First had reports and industry stumping for fracking claimed trillions of cu/ft could be extracted from the shale in several states.


So instead of say 400 trillion cu/ft we now maybe have 150 trillion give or take. Isn't it always the way of the supporters and industry to hyper-inflate a product. Then a few years later that very same product is somehow now quite as golden as we were first told.

Stump 101:
"Lots of jobs to be had" in these areas especially since the manufacturing went teats up 30 years ago. The drilling in those small towns has been under a economic depression for several decades. These areas were once steel foundry's,coal mines and heavy manufacturing that supported Americas infrastructure.

If it's built,you'll benefit $:
It like one big scam to the rural American. First the jobs are to raise wind turbines that have a pay back of something akin to the radioactive half-life of  Bikini Atoll.  Now we're slammed with the dwindling expectation of more is less again. The cry went out, we need more natural gas availability's and it goes to who? My propane cost last fill up which was January 2012 was $2.75 gallon. Up $1.85 gal from 1994.

EPA mandates:
Many small towns were forced to upgrade their existing water and waste treatment processing to handle the billions of gallons of waste water & sediment from the drilling operations.

Lets get this straight , I'm not against drilling. I'm against corporate BS. Goverment inflated statics no matter what they are. I.E. natural gas,weapons of mass destruction and the other investment lies.

Where's the money at?
As I drove from upstate NY a few weeks back down to rural Georgia. I could not help notice all the new "for sale" bill boards on properties. Last October 2011 I made the same drive and many of those sales signs were not present.

I saw dozens of homes many over priced by the realtor's that are still living in the 80's that is as far as home sales and affordability go. A group of properties I was watching on a weekly basis are now up for auction. Foreclosures that is.

If you really want an awaking take a side road, run into that small town. Many store fronts are abandon while a few are filled with second had shops. Unless your area is one that can attract a hoard of tourism to help keep the local economies going no amount of green jobs or get rich corporate schemes are going to sustain you for very long.

It's sad , it was preventable.
The world economies is not something new. Marco Polo lived  in a world economy. Those who argue "it's a world economy" are idiots. They are like those who call you a name in the middle of a discussion because they have no history or facts to back up the BS they repeat.

Who pays~You do!:
Look at your utility bills folks. Notice all those dollar or two fees. Those are to fund green jobs and sustainability. Sustainability is a  word that has been used way out of context. Sustainability use to mean one produces or grows a product and it will sustain or feed support an individual or group of people. Now days "sustainability" is used as a way to say, hey Idiot! We're going to charge you an extra fee er ah tax to help my corporations , governments bottom line. Their thinking is , You're going to pay me a few hundred dollars extra annually for something that you or the public will never benefit from.

Wake up people~
A tax cap is a cap. A green fee is a tax. Don't feel guilty becaue they say it's your fault. It's all a scam.
Sustainability is a goal that reduces the consumption of resources. In this writers opinion, today's sustanability is a way for corporations & government to reduce the consumption of their profits by taking our resources.
