****BREAKING NEWS, BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS****
Judge Dismisses Claim by Dimock Plaintiff that fracking/drilling has damaged property value.

Says Property Value has Increased Since Drilling Started.

IN A MAJOR blow to the plaintiffs in the Dimock Water trial – the judge has dismissed their claim that gas drilling devalued their property.
In fact Judge Martin Carlson said the evidence produced by the plaintiffs had shown that “the property has in all probability increased greatly in value” since drilling started in the area.
Judge Carlson was ruling in the case taken by the Ely and Hubert families in Dimock PA. Their case had become a cause celebre of the anti-fracking movement.
However the jury has heard from the plaintiffs’ own lawyers that they have no evidence of fracking fluids contaminating water and there has been no evidence of health impacts on the families.
The case now rests upon whether Cabot Oil & Gas, a Texas company caused a “nuisance” by drilling for gas in the area.
The trail before a jury is expected to end later this week.

Common sense prevails. Now about all those other anti-frackers, a class action against them perhaps?

Thanks to Phelim McAleer for following the court action, oh, and being censored by Facebook! The truth must hurt:

I wanted to let you know that our FrackNation Facebook page has been attacked by activists leading to two posts being removed and the page being locked for 24 hours.

As you know I’ve been covering the Dimock Water Trial that is finally revealing the truth about this scam – where two families are claiming an oil and gas company have polluted their water. Well – their case is collapsing because they have no evidence and in fact the evidence is emerging that the case is nothing

The high profile case against the fracking company is about busted. MacAleer reports:

The Daily Caller reports on and busts an activist scientist:

“The study, published late last month, is entirely based on the debunked idea that proximity to oil and gas development is negatively impacting public health. It’s lead author, Dr. Anne Epstein, acknowledges she has been paid to give anti-fracking lectures.”

The authors of a recent anti-fracking study have close personal and financial ties to anti-fracking groups.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.
