Surprise!! Who knew? In the first part of February, I wrote that the Nat Gas was a bit antsy about the wild animals they kept and fed, the Sierra Club. Well, the chickens are coming home to roost. We know of $26 million given to the Sierra Club from one of the leading companies in the industry, but I believe it would be more accurate to add a zero at the end to get a feel for the Nat Gas industry wide support of the Sierra Club’s war on cheap energy. Now that the EPA has effectively killed the coal industry, the misanthropists’ eyes have turned to their next target.
The Sierra Club is intensifying its natural-gas reform campaign and renaming it “Beyond Gas,” a spin-off of its decade-old “Beyond Coal” campaign seeking the phaseout of coal-fired power plants.
“As we push to retire coal plants, we’re going to work to make sure we’re not simultaneously switching to natural-gas infrastructure,” Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune told National Journal in an interview on Wednesday. “And we’re going to be preventing new gas plants from being built wherever we can.”
The name for the campaign was actually decided about two weeks ago but hasn’t yet appeared prominently on the group’s website, Brune said. “Beyond Gas” represents a significant expansion of the group’s ongoing efforts against increased natural-gas production and will be integrated with campaigns against the other major fossil fuels, oil and coal.
It won’t be integrated. It will be highlighted. Here is how effective the anti-humanists were in shutting down coal……
By galvanizing and harnessing local opposition to coal, the Sierra Club takes credit for retiring 106 coal plants and preventing 150 from being built. “We follow business-development plans,” Brune said.
Of course, the reasons that a coal plant is retired or not built are debatable. “What causes these plants to be approved or rejected—everybody is speculating at first,” Brune said. “Sometimes it was economics that prevailed and that’s what helped defeat the plant.”
Yes, sometimes it was economics. It was the economic condition created by a marriage of convenience between the Sierra Club and the Natural Gas industry. Now the lunatics have turned their ugly head towards natural gas and we’ve one less ally to help fight the fight. I am in awe of Natural Gas’s fantastic stupidity and their entire disregard for the economic condition of the average citizen. It is a small wonder why people are conflicted about what is right. No worries, gas, we’ve got your back……. just quit helping. Imbeciles.
