PennEast Pipeline Approved by FERC Over Fractivist Objections

FERC has approved construction of the PennEast Pipeline, rejecting objections ginned up through an organized campaign funded by the William Penn Foundation.

Although it will still need approvals from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the Delaware River Basin Commission or DRBC (which has no actual authority over pipelines but to which PennEast agreed to submit), the PennEast Pipeline now has FERC approval. It came despite a parade of ridiculous objections raised by project opponents, many of whom, just like the DRBC, have been funded by the detestable trust-funders at the William Penn Foundation. The Delaware Riverkeeper’s assertions got particularly short shrift, in fact.

While Cabot has become known for its ongoing philanthropy, the initiatives covering the holiday season were especially well received.

The Absolute Rot Governor Andrew Corruptocrat Cuomo Has Wrought

… 

Andrew Corruptocrat Cuomo didn’t create all of the Southern Tier’s problems but he’s done nothing to help because gas companies willing to invest won’t pay.

An absolutely amazing story appearing Crain’s New York Business yesterday tells the ugly truth about New York’s Governor Andrew Corruptocrat Cuomo; no one advances without paying the governor. Crain’s gives Cuomo a bit of cover by suggesting he was simply exploiting a loophole that he himself described as “egregious,” but they also make it more than clear the most egregious thing is what Corruptocrat is doing, which its nothing less than a pay to play scheme. It’s no wonder gas and pipeline companies haven’t gotten nowhere in the Southern Tier. They haven’t paid.

… 

Refusing to give up, the Constitution Pipeline filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the corrupt NY DEC ruling against the project and uphold the law.

“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated” – Mark Twain (and Constitution Pipeline). Last week it was our duty to report the sad news that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission found they could not override the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) decision (under pressure from the corrupt Andrew Cuomo) to block the Constitution Pipeline. FERC found, after an exhaustive investigation, that the DEC had suckered Constitution into refiling a second time, restarting the one-year clock under which NY could render a decision about the pipeline.

Jessup Brough just hired radical attorney Jordan Yeager, who’s in the business of lawyering for fractivist groups funded by big-money special interests.

Jessup Borough, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, is home to a brand new natural gas fired power plant now being finished by the Invenergy company. Indeed, part of the plant is due to start operations next month. But, something very strange and deceptive appears to be going on. A new Borough Council, which now includes opponents of the plant, has just hired radical attorney Jordan Yeager to represent them in dealing with some after the fact matters relating to the plant’s wastewater discharges. Why is a radical anti-gas attorney costing $225 per hour necessary to review a discharge plan?

….
…. 

The Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens or UDRBC has called out the DRBC fracking ban as unfair, a theft of property rights, overreach and discrimination.

The proposed ban on natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin by the DRBC is a travesty.  It can be summed up as unfair politics, theft of property rights, overreach with respect to the DRBC Compact, and discrimination across county lines.
