“The researchers determined that the wells leaking the most methane were in the drilling phase, a period that has not been known for high emissions,” reported the Los Angeles Times. “Experts had thought that methane was more likely to be released during subsequent phases of production, including hydraulic fracturing, well completion or transport through pipelines.”
#Walmart v. #Taxes
Purdue and Cornell researchers flew over well pads like this one in Southwestern Pennsylvania to discover higher-than-expected methane levels during the production of natural gas.

#PirateParty ... #PPint
#GreenPirateAlliance -- [alternative energy, environmental protection; open internet, open government; legalized marijuana]
OTP supports both PPI and WPP... our goal is to encourage #Occupy to embrace the Pirate Party
Below is the WPP manifesto (as presented by Adbusters):
We, the people of Planet Earth, hereby launch the World Pirate Party, a global horizontal people’s party for all those who are ready to stand up for and fight for our blue-green-black platform:
Blue – the color of intellect and imagination – stands for mental environmentalism and our party’s commitment to the vision of internet democracy championed by the Pirate Parties of Europe.
Green – the hue of Earth and immortality – stands for the four-decade-strong resistance movement against environmental degradation which we must win for a sane, sustainable future.
Black – the tenor of struggle and justice – stands for our party’s promise to abolish corporate personhood and institute a new global world order in which corporations bow to the will of the people.

Disclaimer: OTP (Occupy The Polls) is not an "officially" endorsed #occupy page. We have been involved with Occupy since day 1 (Sept 17, 2011), but the movement has always had a somewhat ambiguous stance on the utility of voting. Understandably. We feel, however, that in addition to occupying, citizens need to become radically politicized.
