Predictably, @JohnFetterman used jobs as the reason why we shouldn't #banfracking in his con to my pro on the issue in this @PhillyInquirer op-ed. Just as predictably, he used the piece to promote #RestorePA. (thread)

Along the way, he invoked the purity argument against the anti-fracking movement and, by extension, the climate movement.

It is the purity of the firefighter trying to save the home.
Meanwhile, the impure side that he aligns with is not taking the approach of achieving the same goal, just more slowly. He and his boss may use that rhetoric when defending their indefensible position, but #RestorePA is just one of the ways they are actually fanning the flames.

⚡ YOU'VE WON! WE'VE WON! ⚡
The government has just announced an official end to their support for #fracking in England, after years of tireless campaigning. Fracking isn't wanted, isn't needed, and now - isn't happening.

Huge congratulations to all amazing campaigners! 🎉🍻💪
“This... is a tremendous victory for communities and the climate. For nearly a decade local people... have fought a David and Goliath battle against this powerful (#fracking) industry. We are proud to have been part of that fight.” - @CraigBennett3

@CraigBennett3 We welcome the moratorium on #fracking in England, but we must now ensure that legislation is passed so that the ban is made permanent. #BanFracking #ClimateEmergency

Ok am gonna list this in sequence ONE LAST time (for Bozos & Half bakes)
1. In 2010-11 TN needed a fresh non conventional power source
2. Natural Gas etc was proposed as safer cheaper more environment friendly alternatives
3. The central govt pushed for new exploration thru NELP
4. GEECL which was already producing fuel in Raniganj West Bengal showed interest to search for deposits.
5. State Govt OFFICIALS signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding ONLY)
6. The MoU was strictly time bound for 4 yrs ONLY and EC or NO other CLEARANCES were issued in 2011

#BritishGas has been throwing their consumers money into the #moneypit by propping up failing #fracking company #Cuadrilla. Yesterday once again their shares took a tumble continuing an ongoing trend.

There is also very poor confidence in A J Lucas the parent company of Cuadrilla. Read the report from Simply Wall Street. 👇

"Embodied energy injustices: Unveiling and politicizing the transboundary harms of fossil fuel extraction and fossil fuel supply chains".

New paper with @jenniecstephens & @stephmalin_soc

Energy decisions have transboundary impacts. Yet assessments of large-scale energy infrastructure (e.g. EIS) rarely consider upstream/downstream emissions. Justice implications are completely omitted. Net effect = incomplete & flawed energy decisions (2)
The old Salem plant burned coal from La Guajira, Colombia. Fracked gas from PA, USA, now supplies the new gas-fired station*. Decision-makers ignored the ‘upstream’ injustices experienced by both communities. (3)
