Slimed by the Sierra Club

Posted on: August 20th, 2012 by NoGreenSlime No Comments

The Sierra Club’s about-face on natural gas development was about four years in the making, going from general support for the industry in 2008 to strong opposition in 2012. The Wall Street Journal captured this organization’s hypocrisy in a May 2012 article. The Sierra Club seems to ignore several important facts: natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, it is being produced in huge volumes here in our country, it is creating hundreds of thousands of jobs, and it is reducing our energy costs…not to mention the fact that renewable energy sources can only meet about 7 percent of our current energy needs, and require government tax credits to make them viable.
