Faces of Greed, Lies & Evil: LNG2023 Vancouver BC Canada, July 10-13, Sponsors include Bennett Jones Law Firm. Biggest lie = LNG is green (it’s not, it wastes masses of energy and water and can’t be decarbonized). In Canada, LNG is polluting, health farm & family harming, methane-leaking (at every stage), noisy, diesel-fuming, permanent water-losing, frac’d gas. *LNG = LFG (Liquid Frac’d Gas), it’s not natural!*

LNG’s biggest lie is that it’s green. LNG is much more polluting than coal. Think about what LNG is, and the vast amounts of energy required to frac it, ship it, cool it, ship it, ship it some more. It’s nothing but a money stealing polluting con.

Next, think about the masses of water injected during frac’ing needed to make LNG. I believe Site C dam is to hoard water and energy for frac’ers on the taxpayers’ dime. Most frac’d water is permanently lost to the hydrogeological cycle. Industry and gov’t idiots are even frac’ing communities that are running out of water.

The next biggest LNG lie is that frac’ers can or will decarbonize. Big Fucking Lie. 1) It’s expensive. What do corporations hate most? Spending money on mitigation. 2) Decarbonizing frac’ing and LNG is impossible. The only way to decarbonize LNG is not to frac it or ship it.

The decarbonization con is to make gov’ts take more from the commons (e.g. public health and education) to give more billions of our dollars to multinationals to put into investor, CEO and upper management pockets. This money will never be recovered, like most of the water injected for frac’ing. Those billions of dollars are funding snake oil salespersons and projects, enabled by lawyers in industry and gov’t.

Above: LNG will never be clean or green. Never. It’s an ultra evil polluting health-harming con.

LNG is financed by stealing from the commons, notably public health and education. It will never be prosperous for all, only for the rich.

LNG is grand theft, from the public interest, and the earth’s ability to sustain human life and that of many other species.

Take a good look at this chart. It’s the best advice science has to offer us on how to get out of the climate mess we’ve created for ourselves. #IPCC

If you’re Canadian, look at the CCS bar. It is the highest cost, lowest return decarbonization tool in the toolbox — and we’re betting more and more of the farm on it.

This snap from LNG2023’s promo video is what LNG is really about: feeding human greed.

The money LNG greedily devours to make and ship would finance economical safe non fossil fuel energy producing facilities across Canada, from coast to coast.

But real “green” energy “independence” makes communities secure and does not rape the public interest to give our money to the rich. Thus why our prostituting regulators and politicians don’t fund it.

Digital Posters:

Digital posters are a crucial part of the Call for Abstracts Programme and an opportunity for delegates to explore more than 40 innovative projects and results of in-depth research covering the entire LNG value chain. 

All posters will be shared with LNG2023 delegates ahead of the event to encourage maximum audience engagement. Additionally, the posters will be displayed on large digital screens for all conference delegates and exhibition visitors (15,000+ attendees in total).

The Research & Innovation Session on Tuesday, 11 July will be an opportunity to meet the posters’ authors, ask questions and dive deeper into the topics presented. Attendees can use this one-on-one time with presenters to learn more, ask questions, and talk through the implications of the presented work.

LNG in Canada is frac’d gas, which is extremely harmful to surface and groundwater, communities, farms & families, land, air, wildlife, birds, livestock, fish, crops and more, and is grossly uneconomical which is why gov’ts steal from the public interest to give to the frac’ers to lose.

Frac’d gas and LNG is loaded with lies to make us accept the harms, including being robbed for billions of dollars, again and again.

2012: AEA: Support to the identification of potential risks for the environment and human health arising from hydrocarbons operations involving hydraulic fracturing in Europe

A proportion (25% to 100%) of the water used in hydraulic fracturing is not recovered, and consequently this water is lost permanently to re-use, which differs from some other water uses in which water can be recovered and processed for re-use.

2013: New Report: Less than 1-percent of Tar Sands Environmental Infractions Penalized by Alberta’s “Best in the World,” “World-Class,” “No Duty of Care,” spying, lying and law violating ERCB (now AER)

2017: AER gets failing grade for efforts to acquire, report accurate scientific data! Alberta “guessing” when it comes to spill recovery. “AER failure to protect the environment.” AER “off the scale in terms of believability….” Researcher Dr. Kevin Timoney sums up his forensic investigation: “Persistent, pervasive danger to society and ecosystems.”

2021: Another huge win for global movement to stop flow of money to big polluters with approval of $4Billion Fossil Fuel divestment. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio: “Fossil fuels are not only bad for our planet and our frontline communities, they are a bad investment”

2021: New book by Dr. Kevin Timoney: Hidden Scourge: Exposing the Truth about Fossil Fuel Industry Spills, Six-year investigation into the impacts in western North America. “The science is clear: the production and use of fossil fuels has caused global-scale ecological and atmospheric damage that presently endangers life on the planet.”

2021: President European Investment Bank, Dr. Werner Hoyer: “Gas is over.” Oh, Oh! What’s gas frac’er Ovintiv/Encana gonna do? And, what’s Petro Pimp Jason Kenney gonna do? Fart bigger (after threatening USA with a tiny fart for wisely killing Keystone XL)?

2023 03 15: Indigenous Group Fighting Emissions Cap Quietly Supported by Top Canadian Oil Company, An Indigenous Resource Network spokesperson confirmed funding from Cenovus, but denied the company’s membership status.

2023 03 20: Dan [email protected]:

European Commission proposes extending energy crisis measure to curb gas demand — will further advance the structural changes that will see the EU shifting away from gas faster than anybody previously anticipated.
