Minnesota Censorship: First Time In Its 9-Year History That A Scheduled Film Was Censored -- Due To Psychological Nudity? Why Has The EIA Website Not Been Taken Down? The Fifth Estate

[The back story to that drying lake in California as pictured in The Los Angeles Times. You know, I'm beginning to think the Fourth Estate is more gullible than ever. And that's probably why the Fourth Estate is dying, being replaced by the Fifth Estate. ]

Don sent this, reported in the Fairfield Sun Times:
The directors of FrackNation, a “pro-fracking” documentary have slammed the organizers of the Frozen River Film Festival in Minnesota after they cancelled a screening of the film following pressure from environmentalists.

FrackNation had been accepted by the Frozen River Film Festival for a screening on Sunday but organizers announced at the weekend that they were canceling the screening - the first such cancellation in the festival’s nine year history.

FrackNation Director Phelim McAleer said the cancellation was censorship and an attack on diversity.
Apparently the organizers can't handle the truth.


Bloomberg continues to morph into the Minneapolis Star and Tribune.

Bloomberg reports that:
U.S. solar companies added 20 percent more jobs in the 12 months through November, the biggest climb since an industry-funded group began its survey four years ago.
That may be correct -- that 20 percent in the past 12 months may be some sort of record, but the article conveniently misses an opportunity to have readers compare the solar industry record with the oil and gas industry over the past five years. Compare the record of the oil and gas industry to the president's employment initiatives, as seen in the president's own graph at his link.

The only thing that surprises me is that this website, the EIA website, has not been removed.

Oh, by the way, it would be interesting to compare the amount of tax revenue the federal government receives annually from the oil and gas industry compared to that received from the solar industry. To see what the solar industry has contributed, click here.
