Summary:
  • BH is having an emotional breakdown
  • BH is facing numerous threats to his life and reputation
  • BH needs to raise ~$5k urgently
  • Kudos and Accolades
  • Recent Videos

EMERGENCY
Dear Friends and Donors--
First I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me over the years.
Either financially, or shared my videos or blog posts, or just given me encouragement
and moral support.
I have been sitting in front of my computer crying uncontrollably for the last 30 min.
Trying to find a way to say something to you all.
I urgently need about $5,000 in order to keep doing this work.
If I don't raise at least $1,400, I will be evicted and HOMELESS on Oct 9th.
This is less than 1 week.

The breakdown is as follows. I need about $2,235 for basic living
expenses, and $2,634 in program expenses.



Program? Basic Living?




PACER $40 Y
VPS $44 Y
phone $70 1/2 1/2
Food/Groceries $200
Y
past due rent $600
Y
Moving $1,400
Y
Project completion $2,500 Y




total $4,854 $2,614 $2,235
I cannot imagine how I can raise this much money in this amount of time.
So, I sit here, and I cry.

I wake up crying. I fall asleep crying.
I am full of fear and dread.
I can't think what I should be doing.

NEWS and ACCOLADES
  • I was recently made a member of the Damascus Citizens for Sustainability Steering Committee.
    THANK YOU to Barbara Arrindell, one of my greatest friends and supporters.

  • My research into the Merrimack Valley Gas Disaster was cited in the Gas Leak Allies report,
    "Rolling the Dice: Assessment of Gas System Safety in Massachusetts"
    https://www.gasleaksallies.org/rolling-the-dice
  • I was interviewed by the Cooperstown Freeman's Journal / Hometown Oneonta about the recent fatal crash of an XNG truck in Fenton. (I am subject matter expert in these Ultra-High-Pressure CNG "Virtual Pipeline" Tube-Trailers, aka. #BombTrucks)
    https://www.allotsego.com/rig-driver-ejected-in-1st-fatal-xng-crash/
Recent videos:
I have a VERY SERIOUS pending legal matter
which I am lucky to have a very good attorney, (pro bono).
But I am prohibited from speaking about it other than this:
Hi, some of you may know I was scheduled to appear in Broome County Supreme court on October 11 in an action filed by Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation, and its subsidiary Gassearch Drilling Services Corporation to compel my being deposed in Cabot's Pennsylvania.action against Ray Kemble.

I want to report that I am being represented in this matter by attorney Rachel Treichler, and that the October 11 hearing date has been adjourned.  A new hearing date has not yet been set.

Many thanks to my friends and supporters during this very challenging time in my life.
I have been personally attacked, blocked, banned, censored, betrayed, malaigned, slandered, abused and/or abandoned by SO MANY GROUPS!!!
including (for example) No Fracked Gas Cayuga, who USED MY DATA on the safety
of Virtual Pipeline #BombTrucks in the Tompkins County "Strongly Worded Resoultion"
used to defeat the power plant, WITHOUT CREDIT, as they
a) blocked me from participating in 3 public events on a topic where I am subject matter expert
b) presented MY DATA AS THEIR OWN while getting important details wrong,
c) when I tried to negotiate in good faith some remedy, like civilized adults do, I WAS ISSUED A LEGAL THREAT FOR MENACING!!!!! (Bullshit. I will show you all the emails)
I am NOT suicidal.
I want to live.
I have much more work I want to do.

I am at my WITS END and am considering DRASTIC ACTION
like getting on my bicycle and riding into the woods and
NEVER COMING BACK!!!!
I am out of options, time, money, and hope.
I'm looking for homeless shelters now.

Here is a summary of my public-service work highlights over the last 10 years: TinyURL.com/BillHustonsFrackingResume


If you can contribute, I am greatly appreciative:
USPS: Wm Huston, PO Box 22, Endicott NY 13761
If you know of a place with a room where I can crash
long/short term in Endicott / Vestal / JC / Union,
please let me know.

I am DESPERATE!!!!!

THANK YOU to anyone who cares about me.
God bless you to everyone who has helped me
or offered moral support, or just appreciation.

BH

"I love you"

Link to this: https://tinyurl.com/BHP-ILoveYou



"I love you" 

A fireman in Otsego County NY says this to a fellow fireman, just before entering an extremely hazardous scene: an XNG (Xpress Natural Gas) high-pressure CNG truck rollover. I call them #BombTrucks.

The payload was approximately 500,000 scf of mostly methane: 11 tons of gas. These tanks are under extremely high pressure, and are subject to both explosion and hot, intense fire which can burn like a blowtorch for an hour or more.

THIS FIREMAN UNDERSTOOD THE RISK. 
He understood this was possibly his last words. 

New Video Coming Soon...

I LOVE YOU!Especially my donors! --- If you have ever donated to me (especially if you paid by check), and you would like to see a SNEAK PEAK of my new video (Draft! No sharing!) Please drop me a line at WilliamAHuston@gmail.com

Cabot Oil and Gas: Cease and Desist!

My letter to Cabot Oil and Gas' attorney, Amy Barrette. 



---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: William Huston <williamahuston@gmail.com>
Date: Wed, Apr 10, 2019, 12:02 PM
Subject: Cabot Oil and Gas: Cease and Desist!
To: Barrette, Amy L. <amy.barrette@bipc.com>


Ms. Barrette, 

Let me make this very clear.

I am in fear my personal safety. YOU (Cabot and agents) ARE VIOLATING MY CONSTITUTION, CIVIL, and STATUTORY RIGHTS. 

I do not trust you, or any of Cabot's agents, who have stalked me, followed me, acted in bad faith, invaded my privacy, harassed me, threatened me, bullied me, including physical assault, defamed me, and are now abusing the courts punitively against me, for at least seven years.

This includes Energy In Depth, Natural Gas Now, Tom Shepstone, Rachel Colley/Bunzey, Nicole Jacobs, Joe Massaro, Bill Desrosiers, WellSaidCabot, George Stark, Madison Weaver, Marcellus Drilling News, Jim Willis, Phelim McAleer, Victor Furman, Frank George Chernega, John "Jack" MacArthur, and others. 

Upon Information and Belief, Cabot Oil and Gas has a paid placement on Google, a video which shows up when one searches for "Bill Huston Blog", which was shot by Vic Furman, published by EID Marcellus, which is or was funded by Cabot directly or indirectly through the 501c6 trade association IPAA, with the defamatory title "Bill Huston Meltdown". This paid placement has existed since 2012 (seven years), yet is not identified as a paid placement. Since Google declares their Page Rank is determined organically through links , people assume this placement is due to popularity. It is thus fraud as well as defamation. This paid placement has caused me substantial damage to my reputation, personal friendships, and has impacted my ability to raise funds. 

Upon Information and belief, Cabot's involving me in this case has nothing to do with your allegations that I have material evidence to support your claims against Mr. Kemble, but are in fact, abusing the courts PUNITIVELY AGAINST ME solely because, 

a) I helped Mr. Kemble defend against your attacks against his life and property, 

b) for my other work for a decade, exposing the harms of gas drilling activities, and fighting natural gas infrastructure projects, such as the Constitution Pipeline, and Type-4 CNG Bulk-Haul "Virtual Pipeline" Tube-Trailers, aka, #BombTrucks (XNG, NG Advantage),  which you (Cabot and agents) perceives as impacting Cabot's bottom line. 

I do not intend to cooperate with your Witch Hunt against my friend Ray Kemble. I intend to refile my Quash Motion with the court of jurisdiction and seek an order of protection against your threats against my person.  

I HAVE NO MATERIAL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT EITHER OF YOUR BOGUS CLAIMS AGAINST RAYMOND KEMBLE. I have NO TESTIMONY to offer which can support either of your claims against Mr. Kemble. 

As I stated in my brief, I only casually knew Mr. Kemble during the time of the alleged events of your two claims against Mr. Kemble. I only came to know and work with him closely AFTER you filed your 2017 action against him.

I am not a party to this case. I am not mentioned in the complaint. 

Your claims against Mr. Kemble in the verified complaint are based on perjurous and false statements made by George Stark. Mr. Stark admitted to an AP reporter on Feb 4 that Cabot's claims against Mr. Kemble are bogus, and in fact you are only using this case to seek punishment against others: 

"This is Cabot vs. the money that's behind this. These are paid activists, paid actors on behalf of Food & Water Watch and the like.... Some will say that, you know, again Cabot is going after a local voice. And that's nothing further from the truth. We are actively going after those that are funding. These billionaire groups are funding these mouthpieces." -- Binghamton Press & Sun, "Gas driller Cabot backs off demand to have Susquehanna County man thrown in jail", 2/4/2019

I demand that you CEASE AND DESIST all such activities, including stalking, harassment, defamation, threats, surveillance, bullying, personal attacks, and intimidation against me.

I demand that you remove all videos, photos, podcasts, audio recordings, blog posts, online comments and other published statements made by your agents which include my name and/or image. 

I demand that you (Cabot and agents) stay 200'ft away from me at all times. You are not authorized to possess my home address or divulge it to others, and you only obtained this information under duress and threats of imprisonment. You are directed to delete this from all records. 

I do not authorize you sending mail or packages to my home, or doing surveillance upon me at any time. I do not authorize you to investigate me in any way. I consider such activities criminal harassment, and threats to my personal safety. 

You are directed to send any letters to me BOTH by email WilliamAHuston@gmail.com, and to: PO Box 22, Endicott NY 13761. 

You are not authorized to call me on my personal cell number, as you already have. You are not authorized to posess this number. You are not authorized to divulge this number to anyone. You should delete this number from all your records. Upon Information and Belief, you obtained this number via illegal means. 

ONLY If you have a summons for me, then I direct you to a) call me on 607-296-0671, AND email me at WilliamAHuston@gmail.com giving me 48 Hours Notice (only counting hours M-F). I will make arrangements to meet your process server in a public location. 

If you do not cooperate with these demands, then I will seek whatever remedies and protections are afforded to me under law. 

Thank you for your cooperation. 
William Huston

Ray Kemble Update / $6000 urgently needed

Friends, I'm about to lose all connectivity to the world. If somone could PayPal me $60 urgently, I can keep my cell service on.

I also need $400 urgently for propane (yes the plan is to take this place to renewables, but we're stuck with propane for now). Also $500 for outstanding internet/landline (currently off). I have other urgent financial needs, such as $1500 for car repairs.

http://TinyURL.com/DonateToBillHuston

My total URGENT need is for nearly $6000
Donations gratefully accepted in any amount!
If you must send a check or money order, then make it out to William Huston, and address the envelope to: 

Ray Kemble
11081 SR 3023 
Montrose, PA 18801

I will probably be here mostly for the next few weeks. 

RAY KEMBLE UPDATE



First, check the new Ring of Fire show about Ray:  https://youtu.be/fChkuttYk0Q

Cabot's Disparagement SLAPP case against Ray is still ongoing. Cabot has been trying to dispose Ray and 3 of his friends for 6 months, unsuccessfully. The friends are: Craig Stevens, Julanne Skinner, and me. Cabot wants Depositions and also personal documents like bank records. 

Ray's house has been under near constant surveillance since early December. I have been followed at least twice by Cabot's goons. We've called the PA State Police dozens of time, and they do nothing. They claim it's legal. I have cited 3 criminal statutes, but still nothing.

It's really insane how corrupt the PA government is. There is nothing here uncorrupted by Gas Money. You'd honestly never believe it unless you saw it with your own eyes. 

There is a major hearing on Ray's case on Monday, Feb 4th at 8:45 AM. I know it's a bad time of year to travel, but would be great to see some friends.

Craig, Bill, and Julanne all will argue their Motions to Quash. Cabot has a motion for Contempt against Ray and want him arrested. 

BTW, Ray just had major abdominal surgery. He's been quite sick for a year. He is trying to recover and heal, and he's being STALKED and HARRASED by Cabot's Goons. But THEY are the ones who contaminated HIS water!

No one should have to live like this!!!

Oh, and Ray's attorney Rich Raiders has botched this case badly. Do you watch the Ring of Fire segment, where they talked about the "opportunity of Discovery" upon Cabot Oil and Gas? Well Rich Raiders hasn't made ONE SINGLE discovery request upon Cabot!  he has also divulged confidential, privileged info to Cabot's atty multiple times, even placed a confedential email from Ray ON TO THE RECORD!  and now WANTS OUT. 

Ray sent me photos "of [his] bloody ass" and asked me to send them to anyone who doubts his medical condition. 

That's the update. 
Over and out for now.

Grateful to whomever can PayPal me $60 to keep my phone on. My total urgent needs are nearly $6000.  That's just to catch up, break even.

This does NOT include program costs like FOIA fees, PACER expenses, or vital subscriptions, mailing fees, etc., gas money or even food beyond the food bank. If I could raise $8000, I'd be fully funded until March. 
I need a big miracle, but grateful for tiny ones.


Thank you. 

I have 4 new videos to upload, if I can get the internet back on. That needs $500

WESTCHESTER Co.NY! High Pressure #BombTrucks heading to YOU! (Courtesy: Con-Ed)

Downstate Friends,

You should consider this a 911:


and this cut-n-paste of the press release:

QUOTE:
(fluff abou about "renewable natural gas", "peak day offsets" and "heat pumps" deleted. Here's the real matter:)

“This program will help us maintain reliable service so that our customers can keep their homes and businesses warm and comfortable, while helping to support state and local energy goals,” said Marc Huestis, Con Edison’s senior vice president, Gas Operations. “However, these measures do not eliminate the need for a new natural gas pipeline to keep up with our region’s energy needs.” ....

The measures – which were proposed by respondents to a Con Edison competitive solicitation - include:
  • ...(snip)...
  • The construction of two to five compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage sites in Westchester County. The supply would reduce the need for conventional natural gas pipeline supplies by 40,000 dekatherms on peak winter days.
The company is seeking $305 million in funding for the program [FROM RATEPAYERS!]. The maximum increase in the gas bill when the program funds are fully spent around 2025 would be approximately 1.5 percent for an average residential or small business customer. For a typical residential heating customer, this would be about $2 per month. But that does not include savings and environmental benefits the company expects the program to produce for customers.
....
Con Edison is working with potential partners to identify possible locations for the renewable natural gas, CNG and LNG facilities.
The CNG and LNG storage plants would accept fuel transported by trucks. The fuel would be stored and flow into Con Edison’s gas distribution system on winter days when demand is high. The LNG would be stored in tanks. On cold winter days, the supply would be replenished with additional deliveries by truck.

ENDQUOTE

In other words....
Bomb Trucks Heading for New York!!!
Zoom Zoom!
Similar facilities have already been set up temporarily as a "Peaking Service" or as "Pressure Boosters" during maintenance of the Local Distribution System in
  • Roosevelt Island, NYC
  • Glenwood Landing, Long Island NY
  • Rye NY
A "permanent" installation is already established in Mechanicville, NY (Saratoga Co) just North of Albany.

There are PROPOSED similar sites like this now in
  • Oneonta, Otsego Co
  • Ithaca, Tompkins Co.
XNG is launching 100+ High Pressure #BombTrucks into New York now each day, up to 5 per hour!

There are TWO NEW FACILITIES approved and/or under construction in Susquehanna County NOW. These new facilities are even larger and may be capable of 150-200 CNG loads per day.

So NY could EASILY have 400 CNG #BombTrucks per day soon!

ADDITIONALLY: There is also a MASSIVE new proposed LNG facility being proposed in Bradford County PA which could send 240-360 trucks per day!!!

There are NIMBY groups in Ithaca and Oneonta fighting their local
#BombTrucks facilities, as the NIMBY group in Fenton defeated theirs.

There is NO GROUPS or individuals (apart from a SMALL number of people)
working in a coordinated fashion to defeat these trucks state-wide.

NY is particularly well-suited to defeat these trucks, because:

1: It looks like they are mostly headed into NY
2: NY has SEQRA which requires an EIS (PA for example, has nothing like this!)
3: NY has an amazingly dedicated and smart fractivist community.
    (Or so I've heard..... WHERE ARE YOU!?)

We have received a TON of excellent help from Nicole Dillingham and Otsego 2000. THANK YOU NICOLE! 

Keith Schue, Suzy Winkler, Dennis Higgins, JoAnn Gardner, Vera Scroggins, and a few others have been helpful. We have received some limited help from d & Water Watch, Mothers Out Front, and Catskill Mountainkeeper.  THANK YOU!

Mostly, Craig Stevens and I have been mostly working on this by ourselves for 18 months.

WHERE IS THE STATEWIDE CAMPAIGN fighting these High Pressure CNG #BombTrucks as a statewide issue!?

HELP US DEFEAT #BombTrucks in NY!



Even Smart People Repeat FALSE Industry Talking Points





Albany Rollover Crash, 6/2/2018




XNG has already connected High Pressure CNG #BombTrucks in New York City!!!




A worse-case scenario in Downtown Ithaca could produce 1,250 dead.




NYSEG is already using #BombTrucks as "Pressure Boosters" and "Peakers" in New York!




Mechanicville NYSEG #BombTrucks station.
A simple malfunction here could produce a disaster of the scale seen in Merrimack Valley, which destroyed 131 structures.




Two More #BombTruck Launchers Opening Soon!
Hope you Like #BombTrucks, New York!!!




This slide from an Industry Trade Show shows XNG is targeting Local Distribution Companies.
What Could Go Wrong?!




520 Giga Joules can produce a MASSIVE explosion....  







What's a MOAB?




"Normal Operation" of a Type-4 CNG composite pressure vessel in a fire can result in a GIANT FLAME THROWER!




More PR lies about #BombTrucks




XNG execs have told some OUTRAGEOUS lies!




What to watch for.


New York could see 400+ CNG trucks PER DAY very soon!
This does not include 240-360 LNG trucks PER DAY!!

ATTENTION Sidney NY! New XNG "drop yard" leaves Dangerous HAZMAT vehicles UNATTENDED!

New XNG Drop Yard in Sidney NY

Please share this on social media: https://williamahuston.blogspot.com/2018/11/attention-sidney-ny-new-xng-drop-yard.html

Please donate to support my work: TinyURL.com/DonateToBillHuston

Attention Sidney, NY!! 

Xpress Natural Gas (XNG) has a new "Drop Yard" for their High Consequence #BombTrucks on the NE corner of NY-7 & NY-8, behind Catskill Shed Co. It is a muddy, UNFENCED lot!

Take Action Below!!

What's a "Drop Yard"? It is a swap point. Some drivers bring up full trailers from Forest Lake PA, unhook it and leave it there. Then they pick up an empty and take it back.

Other drivers bring an empty down from Manheim, drop it, and pick up a full one, take it up to Manheim.

For about a month or so, XNG has been observed to be taking a new route up NY-8 to Utica, and then to Manheim. We think they are taking this new route due to the resolutions against the trucks in Otsego Co.

This route is longer than the 205->28 route, so we are **guessing** this new drop yard (similar to 440 Prentice Rd. in Vestal) is to give an intermediate stop, to shorten two legs of the route, to allow drivers to complete 2 round trips in a 14 hr shift.
These HAZMAT vehicles are being left UNATTENDED for hours at a time. They have risk of EXTREME CONSEQUENCES like fire or explosion beyond any other vehicles on the road. They are known to spontaneously vent. They could be tampered with by some kids (talk about having a bad day!) or used for a terroristic purpose.

Site: NE Corner of NY-7 and NY-8, behind Catskill Shed Co., in a muddy, UNFENCED yard!

PS: There are NO SPECIAL RULES for these drop-yards, and because these high-pressure CNG tanks are on wheels, they are not subject to DEC permits for bulk storage facilities.
We need to fix a DOZEN different laws and add new regulations to address the special risks of these vehicles.


11 tons of methane has the same potential energy as 130 tons of of TNT, or 11x MOABs, the most powerful non-nuclear weapon in the US arsenal.

This has been independently verified by 5 PhDs, including Dr. Anthony Ingraffea (Physics), Dr. Dennis Higgins (Mathematics), and Dr. Ron Bishop (Chemistry)

OK-- a worse-case scenario might be rare... but are you willing to take your chances on such a High-Consequence "Black Swan" event? (cf. "Precautionary Principle")
These vehicles can explode without a source of ignition!
In a fire,Type-4 CNG tanks can turn into a giant flamethrower if safety devices called "Thermally Actuated Pressure Relied Devices" .... WORK AS DESIGNED!!!

There is no doubt, these are EXTREME CONSEQUENCE VEHICLES!


WARNING: Even "Big name" Environmental NGOs and Academics are spreading FALSE and DANGEROUS Industry Talking Points about the safety of High-Pressure Type-4 Composite CNG Tanks! YES, THEY DO EXPLODE, and YES there have been fatalities!

XNG's executives have told some OUTRAGEOUS lies to first responders about the safety of their vehicles.

IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS about this:
 Then TAKE ACTION!

Please contact any of the following:
NY State Police, Troop-C, 607-547-2233. Describe your concerns to the dispatcher, then ask for Commercial Enforcement:
New York State Office of the Attorney General's Environmental Protection Bureau at 518-776-2400
NYS DEC 24-hour, toll-free hotline for reporting environmental violations: 1-844-DEC-ECOs (1-844-332-3267)
NYState DOT: 518-457-6195
NY Dept. of Homeland Security, emergency services(DHSES) Office of Fire Prevention and Control (OFPC): (518) 242-5000 Ask for Christopher Gould
Delaware Co. Sheriff: 607-832-5555
Map of location.



Two new facilities in NE PA are under development. So the number of High Pressure #BombTrucks entering NY every day is about to TRIPLE! From 100 to 300 trucks PER DAY!
WHERE ARE YOU, NGOs?
Where are the NY Statewide groups
helping to fight these vehicles!!!?


Just to let you know: We are not only NOT GETTING HELP stopping these experimental, High-Consequence vehicles from people and groups we expected to be our Natural Allies, but we are getting BLOCKED, BANNED, and are enduring VISCOUS PERSONAL ATTACKS, ironically, while our work on these #BombTrucks is being STOLEN, plagiarized, and used WITHOUT ATTRIBUTION as if it were their own! Yes, other groups are USING MY RESEARCH as if it was their own.

I DO NOT REALLY CARE about name recognition for this work!
I am doing this work in the public interest, and NOT for egoic purposes.
But, I do have a body with needs for shelter and food.

I am personally grateful to the following people who have provided consistent encourage and support of this work: Craig L. Stevens, Nicole Dillingham, Otsego 2000, Halt the Harm Network, Barbara Arrindell, Damascus Citizens for Sustainability, Food and Water Watch (Eric, Alex, Laura), Keith Schue, Dennis Higgins, Kathy Shimberg, Valdi Weiderpas, Tony Ingraffea, JoAnn Gardner, Justin Nobel (Rolling Stone Magazine), Dwain Wilder (editor, "The Banner"),  "Kingpin", and several tipsters and informants who prefer not to be identified.

(If I forgot someone who needs to be credited, please let me know! WilliamAHuston@gmail.com)

PS: I CANNOT do this work without Public Support. 
..... This means YOU!
