Eco-activism is a phony ‘Religion’

Don’t say it’s not.  Because it is.  Here’s why.  Whenever a belief is spread around with little real proof, one must have faith that it is true.  No one can look into a hole and tell what is going on.  No one can tell why water taste or smells the way it does.  It out of sight, but not out of mind

Eco-activists go on phony “faith”.  They attach themselves to phony “god-like” people and hold onto their phony faith.  Yes!  It’s like a religion.

They have:

  • A ‘jesus’.  He’s Al Gore
  • ‘disciples’   They number in the thousands and can be seen on TV and in Congress.
  • ‘holy water’ in the form of marijuana.  I call it ‘Holy Hooch’.  There’s always a drug involved in phony religions.  It’s their Koolaid.
  • ‘mother mary’   in the form of any actress or actor who bothers to show up.
  • ‘mary magdalene’  in the form of whatever female or male who wants to have sex.  Sex is a very important thing when phony religions come into play.
  • ‘gospels’ written by phony disciples and kookie dope smokers.  The early Christians had scores of gospels until an emperor culled them out.   As it stands now, anti-frackers have scores of phony ‘gospels’, too.
  • ‘letters’ written by kookie people make up the foundation of this so-called religion.  The epistles are social media posts or tweets.

Here’s the reality;  Drive on U.S. 380 from Denton, Texas, to Post, Texas.   Along the way you will see drilling rigs tapping the Barnett Shale.  You will see pump jacks pumping, You will see new roads and bridges, new homes and businesses, new government building and schools.   The ranchers have new American made pickups.

The air is clear and fresh.  The night sky is clear and the stars twinkle.  The milky way is bright and beautiful.

It’s the Barnett Shale.

When I was working for an petroleum company in Fort Worth in the middle 1980’s, they were using hydraulic fracturing technology .  They only had the technology to do fracture vertically.  Now they bend the shaft and go horizontal. It was perfectly understandable to me.  I had studied geology and mineralogy at Texas A&M University.

They knew then about the enormous amount of hydrocarbons in the Barnett Shale, but did not have a way to get it out of the ground.  I went to work for another company and lost contact with the petroleum business.  I wish I hadn’t left.
