Nitro: One case out of several is another way of saying 'precedent' right?
On How Will County Handle Exemptions to Fracking and Acidizing Ban?
Posted on July 26 at 1:22 a.m.
Lets say you are right DavyBrown, that Germany has 25 percent renewable power in their mix. The problem is, their expensive power has made Germany uncompetitive for manufacturing.
The US on the other hand has the cheapest, cleanest power in the world thanks to fracking. We are the number 1 gas producer and will be the number 1 oil producer by next year. So manufacturing is moving back to the US because energy is so comparatively cheap. Not bad eh? Shouldnt we all be glad?
Fracking has netted us $1,200 per household per year, growing to $3,500 by 2025. The increase came to every household including 'water guardian' households. The water guardians will of course want to give that back to the evil oil companies
On Measure P Preserves and Protects

Nitro, the mineral owners are obviously not assured by your assurances. They are suing elsewhere and winning. They will sue here too. Think your SFO law firm who put you all up to this, are up to this?

Good point Sensiblemolly. SME has been trying to permit 125 wells for about 6 years now. Still no permit, and no end in site.
Without Measure P it will take (forever) to permit 7700 wells. With Measure P it would take longer

'Preemption' is just one of your legal challenges 'water guardians'. Some of your fellow travelers in Colorado were slapped down decisively with a Summary Judgement, to wit:
"Based on the foregoing analysis. the Court GRANTS Summary Judgment in favor of the Plaintiffs and against the Defendants. The Court finds Article XVI of the Longmont Municipal Charter, which bans hydraulic fracturing and the storage and disposal of hydraulic fracturing waste in the City of Longmont, is invalid as preempted by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Act. COGA, the Commission, and TOP each filed claims for declaratory judgment finding Article XVI of the Longmont Municipal Charter is invalid as a result of operational conflict preemption. Those claims are GRANTED."

Nitrogen, et al: The county collected $16.4 million in tax revenues from the oil industry in 2013.
A UC Santa Barbara study finds that the oil industry adds $291 million a year to the local economy.
Does this mean nothing to you 'water guardians'? From the inside of the evil oil industry, getting permits for anything related to oil is absurdly tough right now. If you get your Measure P . .big capital for oil projects will taper off to nothing real fast. Then you will have your oil industry free county. Lots of your poor cousins to the north will loose good jobs over time. But what do you care . . eh Nitrogen, Spacey, Dr Dan, et al?

The water guardians have determined conclusively that cyclic steaming, acidizing, and (of course) fracking are dangerous and 'extreme'. Expertise is implied when one makes such a hazard assessment. The DOGGR, EPA, and USGS are not as sure about all this as you.
You water guardians must really be something.. . eh?

The usual 'water guardian' bloggers (Nitro, Spacey, et al) try to come off like they know something about the oil industry. Whats really funny is when they attempt to instruct those of us in the business about 'facts' they pick up from the countless green-leftist websites out there. The green-left websites are as clueless as all you 'water guardian' bloggers .
Rave on though by all means. You are all (sort of) entertaining

Interesting perspective among the Indy editors. Messing with wine amounts to a 'Backdoor Prohibition'. Messing with oil? We're OK with that.
Message from the Indy? Stay home and get drunk

Vintners:Oil development has also recently collided with the same small command and control crowd you have. These 'Cartman' types have discovered how to weaponize the planning ordinances to their advantage. Measure P as they like to call it in our case.
These folks are void of facts, but long on theater.
