The Strange Adventure of Dick and Liz in Drumshambo
'Sucking gas?' sez Wag. 'It'll go to your head'.
An Taisce and The Frackers. See the coast that area reaches over to. See the sketched pipe on map one. If it wasn't so sick it would be funny. Fracking + Shell + Renewable energy biznizz. One big clusterfuck coming to Drumshambo and parts surrounding.
....................................Now Go Look at the one at the Bottom of the Article and Come back Up when you've done that
Source of Map 1: http://www.finaveragas.com/projects/lough
"The Government will be addressing other weaknesses within the system to try and improve the investment environment for the energy industry. Planning process, licensing and legislative reforms should make it easier in the future for energy projects to proceed.(see here for source: http://bit.ly/jM7XrA)
Then there's Seanie Quinn. The gas didn't come on line quick enough for him. he was planning a Gas fired power station in Toomes in Louth. Got permission and all. Then kablammo - bust. I wonder who has that permission now. Dick's Strategic Act again eased it's passage. Anyone smell a rat?
These people want to break the spirit of the law and slide all this all into place without public consultation: Look what they were talking about.
An Taisce‟s Energy Officer, Elizabeth Muldowney, will be one of six speakers on the Energy Planning panel. Also speaking will be Muldowney‟s counterpart in the Wilderness Society in Colorado, USA. George Burke of the Dept. of the Environment planning legislation division will have a seat and will be joined by his counterpart in the Dutch Dept. of the Environment. Aidan Corcoran, Programme Manager Grid 25 Eirgrid and CEO of Bord na Mona, Gabriel Darcy will also speak on that panel. It will be moderated by John Bowman of RTE. The discussion theme on that panel will be “The need for an energy-specific planning body bypassing An Bord Pleanala and Local Authorities.”(see 'source of map 2 above')
And they'd tell you this had nothing to do with gas. Rotten eggs?
So how did the smell make it to you dear reader. Liz circulated a mail. She was looking for the info on Fracking and the Green stuff in mid may 2011. The mail leaked out because some greenie from merikay hit reply all or just had lost it from sucking on a gas pipe. Liz knows they'll be fracking in Drumshanbo. Liz knows it was big. Maybe 100 Billion. Maybe in the lake. More attractive than sustainable energy? Her and dick and all that gas? Her head must have been spinning on its axis.
Eager young hacks who want to try to prove a free press isn't a dead letter in this godforsaken satrap. Why not ask all those present in Drumshanbo on the record if anyone representing Lough Allen Natural Gas Company or Tamboran Resources LTD were present to see Dick (FF) and Liz (An Taisce) suss out their immediate future in lovely Leitrim. And Maybe ask David McWilliams if he ran into anyone at the gala dinner on the last night. A look at the invitation list would be nice too. Sponsored by ESB. Bord Na Mona. Engineers Ireland.Failte Ireland. leitrim County Council.
Welcome to the age of peak oil. Gas women will be busy. Selling their soul for cash on the drillpad. Thinking about all that Fracking poison seeping into the Shannon in a country where the water is already pretty well fucked up. Poison running into dead seas. Is this what liz wants for her progeny.
