Fracking Victim Sued for Defamation After Proving Drinking Water Flammable
In 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that Range Resource’s drilling activities at a nearby fracking project had contaminated Lipsky’s well. Lipsky can light thewater coming out of his well on fire.
On Oct. 10, the Fort Worth Court of Appeals ruled that Range Resources could move forward with their defamation suit against Lipsky, based in part on accusations that Lipsky is misleading the public about being able to set his water on fire.
Range Resources spent millions of dollars putting on a one-sided case for the Railroad Commission, attacking all of the EPA’s findings.
The EPA’s move hurt the Lipskys since it gave the appearance that the EPA had made a mistake. Why else would a regulatory agency back down when lives are at risk? However the EPA has never retracted their findings that proved Range Resources had contaminated Lipsky’s well.
Lipsky is saddled with legal bills and the expense of trucking in drinking water from a nearby town. He worries about his future, since his dream house has been devalued. He also worries about his neighbors living under the threat of a catastrophic gas explosion …

Im so mad, can he countersue for something and get his money back?
For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.
We’re not the same person we were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. We’re constantly changing. Experiences don’t stop. That’s life.
You create yourself, moment by moment, out of the responses in your mind. People tell you that you create your own reality. What does this mean? It means that out of the millions of thoughtforms that move through your mind, you choose the ones that you will hang on to. You walk down the street. Three people will smile at you, two will frown. To whom will you pay attention? You wear some outrageous costume. Some think it terrific, others think you’re nuts. To whom will you pay attention? You make the choice then build a picture of yourself and create your own reality day by day, thought by thought, word by word. It does not matter what is going on. You select what you think about your world, and well you know it. Some people can lose their job and not be disturbed, while others will take a gun and commit suicide. I ask you to be very serious toward this most basic step toward freedom. You can free yourself from tyranny with little trouble if you will only see that it is you who selects and interprets this picture of yourself day after day. If you don’t like the picture, why not change it? You change your view of yourself all the time. But you do it unconsciously. In part, awakening involves the realization that you create your view of yourself and the events of your life. Once you understand this, you are in a position of power. If you don’t want to be resentful, make another choice. If you do want to be resentful, make sure that you realize you are choosing it. It doesn’t matter what you choose, but that you choose.
It’s true what he says though - there is no subject position from which it’s ok to talk about inequality - if you’re poor you are doing it out of jealously, if you’re not poor you’re doing it out of guilt/saviour complex, if you are young it’s just a phase, if you’re old you are hankering for times long gone and trying to recapture your youth, if you’re not well educated you just don’t understand the complexity of the situation, if you are well educated you’re in an academic bubble divorced from reality, if your politically apathetic you’re not allowed to complain, if you’re politically active you’re just trying to push your own sectarian agenda…
For every possible type of person there’s an established reason why your opinions on inequality are invalid. That’s not an accident.
Relevant, and important to understand.
We gotta start teaching our daughters to be somebodies instead of somebody’s.
I don’t know why people are so keen to put the details of their private life in public. They forget that invisibility is a superpower.
wow THIS THO
Someday, I hope to actually laugh at these comics.
- Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
- Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
- Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
- Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
