Fuel Fix – ” . . . The Bureau of Land Management will halt permitting oil and gas projects on public lands if lawmakers do not reach a deal to continue funding the federal government by Tuesday. Offshore oil and gas permitting, which is handled by a separate agency, would continue. . . . “
USGS: “Due to a lapse in Federal funding, the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program has suspended most of its operations. While the USGS will continue to monitor and report on earthquake activity, the accuracy or timeliness of some earthquake information products, as well as the availability or functionality of some web pages, could be affected by our reduced level of operation.”

A big quake north of Japan had the helicorders going off. It was at ~10:40 p.m. last night and caused the big fluid movement under Lake FUBAR an hour later – shown here (at the bottom of the chart). LA12 is still bouncing. . . wait … it may be work trucks. Oh, wait . . . they have a CODE 2 and no work is being done. It says so in this Texas Brine inspection report (9-30). Hmmm . . . maybe El Barfo is reloading . . . stand by!

Pipeline Company’s PR Dream Turns Into a Nightmare – TransCanada’s “community consultation” squad dogged by activist lookalikes 🙂
” . . . . During previous pipeline projects, stakeholders were able to express concerns in front of their whole community. To impede the type of opposition that has stalled past projects, this time TransCanada has changed the format of community consultations, turning them into trade-show-like promotional events where stakeholders can only speak one-on-one with company representatives (or PR contractors hired for the occasion).
To outwit this latest ploy by TransCanada, local activists all along the pipeline route have been swarming these events dressed just like TransCanada reps, but with lookalike “SaveCanada” name tags and brochures. Instead of promoting the pipeline, the SaveCanada reps communicate risks. . . “
