The Shale Gas Debate Gets Personally Anonymous
Posted in the Natural Gas Forum
#1 Apr 23, 2013
Increasingly, opponents of shale gas are using social media under anonymous names. Janice Gibbs, a victim of this anonymous name-calling, calls out the perpetrators and urges them to exercise the courage of their convictions.
Shale gas development has transformed our lives as Americans; from the national economic revival to the impact fees for local communities. It has truly been a win-win situation all around, especially where I live in Washington County. However, not everything surrounding natural gas development has been a good thing. People who do not agree with it have turned to social media to bash those who do not share their same views. I myself am a victim of what, I would say, amounts to cyber bullying.
I never thought my views on something as positive as natural gas development would create significant backlash. I know I am not the only person that deals with this on a daily basis, and it has almost made me stop wanting to speak out publicly. But this is something that I believe in, not only for my local community, but also for our nation. As Ive written about before at Energy In Depth (EID), I do not own the rights to the natural gas beneath my land, but I love my community and my country; I absolutely believe natural gas is benefiting and will continue to benefit both. However, I have been attacked over and over again on the Canon-McMillan Patch website, at the Observer-Reporter, and even here on the Energy In Depth blog.
