Work on $500M Gas Plant Continues

Dominion: Flaring is normal — but minimal — part of operation

May 28, 2013

NATRIUM — Those driving by the $500 million Dominion Resources plant that is still under construction may see some natural gas flaring, but officials said this is part of the normal startup process....

Not to be impolite, but I really have to go now. My shift on the french fryer starts in 20 minutes. As you say, goodtalk. If you interpret my withdrawal as a concession of defeat, then my sincerest congratulations.

I just wonder why you aren't calling the NY Times, the LA Times, MSNBC, CNN, the DailyKos, or the Hufferton Post treasonous. Maybe you're not as unbiased as you believe.

McCulloughsLeap, in your May 30, 3:03 pm post you said of this paper, “it's treacherous, it's UNLOYAL [caps mine] and it could even be considered treasonous to print such propaganda.” That’s the “unloyal” to which I refer. You’re the one who described the Intelligencer’s news reports as “unloyal,” not me. I just hope you leftists can’t convince the DOJ they’re “treasonous” as you also described them, because that might get me and Mike Myer thrown in jail. Which I suppose you’d find appropriate, considering you think we’re committing treason.

McCullochsLeap, you know you can subscribe Sundays only, right? Or just buy a Sunday copy at the newsstand. One copy. I promise you can find the “loyal” truth in that edition. If you’re afraid of being brainwashed you can ask a neighbor to burn the “unloyal” parts for you. LOL

McCullochsLeap, why are you only railing against the very few news outlets that lean right? You’ve only been specifically critical of this newspaper and Fox News. What’s the likelihood that was random? Forgive me if I rightly determine the statistics strongly suggest you’re a leftist at heart. If the Birkenstocks fit...

Does the truth offend me? Clearly not as much as the “unloyal” truth offends you. LOL

And “What is a 'newstand'?”? I said “newsstand.” Two s’s. There’s one on Market Street. Maybe you need one of those old-fashioned paper dictionaries. I believe they sell them at the newsstand.

And please don’t ask “What is a ‘paper dictionary’?”...

Defeat? LOL I thought I was “too old and too brainwashed to bother with” and you “can't waste any more time on” me. And yet you’re back for another pummeling. It’s noon mealtime at the old folks home, but ok...

I encourage you to buy a Sunday edition of THIS newspaper. There’s an entire section devoted to liberal columns, full of the most entertaining liberal drivel you can imagine. The letters to the editor also are full of liberal views. Fair and balanced.

Now tell me where I can find such columns and letters in the NY Times? Heck, your favorite “truth”-filled lefty websites pull my comments. Too much truth in my posts, I guess. LOL

Crickets? LOL With age comes patience, my son. And the need for longer bathroom breaks.

They sell a wide variety of newspapers at any newsstand in the valley. Most of them offer the liberal point of view you find “loyal.” Pour yourself a big glass of Kool Aid, put on your blinders, and enjoy.

As far as the Intelligencer goes, it’s obvious that the VAST majority of media sources have a strong liberal bias. Some are more clever at hiding it than others. If a media source or two tend to lean to the right, well that’s just a little balance. Good for them. And believe whatever you want from any source you want, but if you aren’t skeptical of it all you’re being led by the nose.

Rolling Stone? LOL

McCullochsLeap, I don’t let ANY periodicals influence my thinking. I read them all - good and bad - and I’m skeptical of everything I read until I can verify it myself. Yes, you can find a lot of truth on the internet, but almost never from any secondary source claiming to be “the truth.” My data come from Government databases, video and audio quotes I can see and hear with my own eyes, and math and science I have learned to understand and do myself. And I only believe data when they support conclusions OPPOSITE to the conclusions taken by their owners. For example, when the Executive branch tries to convince me unemployment is falling, but their own data show it’s still rising, I tend to believe that data.

Ok, I suppose you’re entitled to your own opinion. But “treasonous”? Seriously? And “the Internet is your best source of unbiased reporting”? LOL Come on. You can’t blame me for chuckling at those.

I sense the frustration in your last post, though. “attempts to downplay [flarings] significance to the worried masses,” “frustrated unemployed and disgruntled locals,” “but things take time. BS. It sure didn't take time for Shell to decide...” Do you feel like the gas industry is a steamroller and you’re a bump in the road? This is an industrial area. Has been for a century. And when a multibillion-dollar company like Dominion wants to put in a gas processing facility in an industrial area where gas will be produced in astronomical quantities, providing jobs and increasing incomes for this depressed region, well, have fun trying to get in the way. LOL

So, McCullochsLeap, you say the Intelligencer is untruthful to the point you would brand it as treasonous, but you can’t point out one specific falsehood in the entire article. Typical of the anti-gas arguments made here every day. And because I can easily point to any sentence in the article to prove your claim wrong you assert as fact that I’m an employee. Typical of the baseless assertions made by anti-gas types here every day. Good talk? Same old, same old.

I could go on and on, for every statement in the article, but the bottom line is that every sentence is demonstrably factual, or is a believable quote or a paraphrase of a quote.

So, McCullochsLeap, it would get us to the crux of our debate if you could point out the specific falsehoods in the article.

From the article “Those driving by the $500 million Dominion Resources plant that is still under construction may see some natural gas flaring” – true. Saw it myself.

“officials said this is part of the normal startup process” – knowing a little about the process, I know that’s true. At least you can believe “officials said” it, right?

"Under normal operating conditions, flaring will be very minimal ..." said Dominion spokesman Dan Donovan. "...intermittent ... part of normal operations ..." A quote. Surely you don’t believe the NR made it up?

“According to the National Geophysical Data Center, flaring is a widely used practice for the disposal of natural gas...” True. You can look it up.

“These officials believe the practice unloads unnecessary amounts of carbon emissions into the atmosphere.” I question the meaning of “unnecessary amounts of carbon emissions,” but, that aside, I can believe officials did say that.

So McCullochsLeap, it’s not just the Intelligencer and Fox News that are untruthful. It’s ALL media. Because all media sources are controlled by evil corporations. The term paranoid comes to mind.

But you believe the internet is the best source of truth. Right...

And since Marcellus asked, I’m a French model. Bonjour.

McCullochsLeap, that’s an impressive list. But perhaps you misunderstood my question. Five media sources. Newspapers, magazines, media websites, news networks... Not five authors you revere. Not individuals; media outlets. Because the subject of this discussion is the truthfulness of this newspaper and Fox News and other media outlets, not the truthfulness of any particular reporter or correspondent or pundit. Go.

McCullochsLeap - Where in this thread or any other did I say you were a Democrat? That's a factual fallacy known as "being wrong" and further indicates your wrongness. Clearly we're operating on different levels, i.e., Me – right, you - wrong. McCullochsLeap – horse and all? I doubt it. Master debater - most certainly. LOL

Oh Great Omnifiscent Trollslayer, we all bow to your ignorance and rudeness (aka: FU).

Is West Virginia ready to buy into all the energy extraction rhetoric AGAIN? At least during the last round there were some local coal mining jobs, but this oil and gas industry is here to exploit and pipe the commodity to one of the two coasts, for foreign profits, NOT homegrown energy to save you money and future wars.

Trollslayer may have been born at night, but hopefully it wasn't last night.. but he sure sounds like it most times! Wake up and smell the coffee Trollslayer, unless you are just an INDUSTRY MOUTHPIECE! Most people wonder why you are so PRO- INDUSTRY, so please, TELL US NOW, who do you work for and where is your money invested?? Why are you such a shill for the gas industry?

So then, McCullochsLeap, if Fox News and The Intelligencer aren’t sources of truth, list your five favorite media sources of truth. There must be at least a few honest media sources out there. Name them.

McCullochsLeap, the fact that you find this “disturbing” is downright hilarious. If you think the Wheeling Intelligencer is a major force in the American disinformation campaign you’re completely unhinged from reality. Treacherous? Treasonous even? Double LOL!

Republican/Chamber of Commerce/Catholic Church/blah/blah/blah... Too funny. Maybe you need to stick with MSNBC and the NY Times where you’ll be spoon-fed only “loyal” news. LOL

McCullochsLeap, since you’re so disappointed in this “rag,” maybe a talented, completely unbiased editor like yourself should start your own newspaper. You could call it the DailyMcKos. LOL
