A Gas Company President Turns Against Fracking…

Well, Sort Of

In his position as CEO at ExxonMobil, Rex Tillerson not only oversees fracking across the United States, he also lobbies to protect the activity despite evidence that it is environmentally destructive. However, Tillerson is willing to draw the line on fracking under one condition: when it’s set to occur too closely to his own home!

Tillerson has joined a Texas class action lawsuit to attempt to block fracking construction adjacent to his $5 million home. According to his lawyer, Tillerson still considers fracking to be perfectly safe, but he is concerned that the nearby fracking will harm his property value.

Funny, declining property value is one of the many logical results of destroying land, tainting the water supply and increasing local cancer rates. The fact that Tillerson is fine advocating for – and profiting massively from — fracking when it happens in other people’s towns yet complains when it affects him is the height of hypocrisy.

SORRY WE BLEW UP YOUR TOWN, HERE'S A FREE PIZZA

Dunkard Township, Pennsylvania suffered a huge disaster recently after a fracking well exploded. The blast shook the community like an earthquake and seemingly killed one man whose body has not yet been recovered. What’s worse, the fatal accident had lasting effects. The fire was so intense that rescue crews were unable to put it out for five days.

How did Chevron, the company fracking in Dunkard Township, apologize for the mishap? With a coupon for a free pizza and a two liter soda. (What, no cheesy bread?) Some of the residents closest to the explosion received a gift certificate in lieu of an actual apology.

If a large pepperoni and mushroom seems like literally the least Chevron could do after unleashing a deadly ecological disaster on a community, that’s probably because it is. Certainly a company that nets more than $20 billion annually could afford to do better than some pizzas… perhaps starting with some increased safety precautions.

The map above just confirms what I have always thought.  England is one a of a few EU countries that follows the rules and this map shows that a vast amount of people do not. It is a no wonder we are a broke nation financially when we follow the rules and all those who screw the system rely on others like us to bail them out.  
 

 


You need to know this.  

The Supreme Court has ruled that human genes

cannot be patented, because they are a

product of nature.


However, the  offered a compromise which allowed synthetic, complementary DNA, known as cDNA, to be protected by patent law, because it is not naturally occurring.  The case, Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, challenged the biotechnology company's existing patents on two genes associated with high risks of breast cancer, known as BRCA1 and BRCA2.  Cancer researchers argued that the patents prevented other groups from developing more effective and less expensive methods to test for gene mutations.  Myriad claimed that the patents protected billions of dollars in research and investment.  

In the ruling, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “it is undisputed that Myriad did not create or alter any of the genetic information encoded in the BRCA1 and BRCA 2 genes,” but in the case of cDNA, a genetic technician “unquestionably creates something new.”  Myriad investors were obviously happy with the compromise, as company shares jumped eight percent after the ruling was issued.

 Today's Supreme Court decision will open the door to new scientific research and testing methods, which could provide breakthroughs in diagnosing and curing breast cancer.  It's great to know that much-needed scientific research will continue, and that no company has the right to own our DNA.


 

 


“Obama Is Running


The Biggest Terrorist Operation


That Exists”

 


Leading liberal Noam Chomsky said yesterday:

The Obama administration is dedicated to increasing terrorism. In fact, it’s doing it all over the world. Obama is running the biggest terrorist operation that exists, maybe in history: the drone assassination campaigns, which are just part of it [...] All of these operations, they are terror operations.

truthout is an independant news outlet reliant on our donations for support. we cannot trust the main line news media like Sky / Fox - BBC - CNN and most of thr American news media, as we are constantly lied to, bullshitted and fed a diet of clap trap that keeps us in ignorance.  truthout is different.

Hamilton Hall is not linked in any way to truthout and we do donate and we do pass on some of their stopries we feel important to share with you, as we use many alternative news broadcasters other than the biased ones normally available.
