Hell, that’s just one month’s work for Sierra Club…

According to BusinessWeek, Chesapeake Energy is being fined $565,000 by the state of Pennsylvania over three separate incidents in 2010 and 2011.

For perspective, consider that Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon gave Sierra Club $26 million over 4 years or $6.5 mil per year or $541,666 (.666, for any of the faith out there wondering about this font of evil…) per month.

An example of biting the hand that feeds you and the utter stupidity of the Environmental movement who substitute the belief that any unusual act of nature is the fault of mankind. I’ll name a few of recent vintage: 1) The endangered Polar Bear–They put the blame on man’s use of fossil fuels and claimed the bears were drowning because they required floe ice to hunt for seals. The man caused global warming (no proof) I refuted by the bears survival of prior warmer than today Middle Ages warm period 1000 years ago and the Holocene Optimum 7000 years ago. Then there was the endangered Eagle. I have seen thousands eagles along rivers in Alaska in the summer nesting in nearly every other tree (they know where their food is). In 1946 in a huge old lead / zinc district I discovered a cluster mines extending the mining into an otherwise untested area. 35 years and 8 million tons mined later the EPA closed all mining because they were pumping water out of the mines having 17 ppm Zinc in it. Vitamin pills with minerals contain this much zinc because this tiny amount is good for you. If they had checked other streams draining the area they would have discovered rain runoff had picked up just as much zinc. This a prime example of the irrational behavior of the Environmental Movement.

Many years ago I was working as a geologist for a large lead/zinc mining company out of Miami, OK. One of the large rivers( I think it was the Missouri R.) had fish with high lead and the the environmental groups targeted our mines as the source. Except for the fact that no lead was found in fish for several hundred miles upstream where high lead in fish was again found. The investigation of our mines was dropped at that point.

Another example of the Nazi-like goons of the EPA.

Modern environmental groups are a lot like the mafia.
You are better off if they are with you only 50% as opposed to being against you 100% of the time.
For Chesapeake Energy, that’s just the cost of doing business with environmental thugs
