To All First Time Visitors

I've noticed a significant increase in the number of first time visitors in the past 30 days.

First & foremost: Welcome!

As a brief intro; I've been blogging since 1999. I have a degree in Earth & Environmental Science, and have twice taken the Susquehanna River to the #1 spot on American Rivers annual "Most Endangered" list; first in 2005 and again in 2011. I stopped counting when I hit the 2,000 mile mark paddling on the Susquehanna.

When it comes to my favorite river and the environmental challenges it continues to face, I've forgotten more than most of the newly-ordained "experts" out there. To that end, I've scaled back my public activism over the past few years out of sheer frustration at the (mostly) clueless cacophony coming from the new crop of wannabes seeking their 15 seconds of...whatever.

Unfortunately, I'm getting restless again.

Stay tuned.

Long Overdue: Corbett's Cataclysmic Comeuppance


Say the word "Dimock" to anyone...anywhere, who is familiar with the natural gas industry's exploitation of PA's natural resources and they will more than likely know that Cabot Oil & Gas was front & center in that environmental disaster.
 
And now, the governor of our commonwealth - Toxic Tommy Cabot Corbett - has given Cabot O&G a "Community Impact Award".


 

From the article:

 
"The award goes to companies that “[exemplify] the tenet of ‘doing well by doing good,’”
 
 
That's right folks. Wanna really ralph? Read the rest here. And here.
 
The arrogance of this man is simply staggering. And he's not too far behind in the ignorance category.
 
I guess it's time to circle back and complete my post about Mrs. Corbett's comments about bloggers.
 
That will be next.

Community Impact...indeed.
