PennFuture is one of Pennsylvania’s phoniest outfits, but they’ve outdone themselves and won a contest for the Commonwealth’s biggest liar with recent mail.

I just received an email being circulated by PennFuture in an attempt to stop the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from approving House Resolution 515, which directly challenges the DRBC decision to consider a fracking ban. It’s stunning as to the degree of lying.

Andrew Cuomo: The Greatest Disaster to Ever Befall Upstate NY

Andrew Cuomo has, in seven years, done more to harm Upstate New York than anyone. He is, in fact, the greatest disaster to ever befall Upstate New York.

It is quite sad, what’s going on here in New York. I’m talking about what our corrupt Governor Andrew Cuomo’s target of 50 percent “clean energy” by 2030. Have you ever noticed politicians always set target dates that can’t be reached until long after they will be out of office? It’s campaign talk followed by supposedly bold actions that signal good intentions. However, nothing good is coming from Cuomo’s actions.

A friend of mine I met in the New York Gas Wars saw his farm go up on the auction block, recentlym losing the family farm. His only misfortune other then living in the most unfree state in the country was his farm wasn’t located in trendy wine country (where they also have gas wells). My friend simply produced meat for the hungry, milk for the thirsty and vegetables for your health. I won’t mention his family name because losing your family’s property is very personal and devastating.

Why? We all ask ourselves this. Who is next?

A Cabot Oil & Gas sporting clay fundraiser for Lackawanna College’s School of Petroleum & Natural Gas shot past its funding commitment a full one year early.

Cabot Oil and Gas has always been committed to education. Each year Cabot has a sporting clay tournament as a fundraiser for Lackawanna College’s School of Petroleum & Natural Gas. Cabot has committed to give $500,000 to the school over a period of five years. This year brought in a record breaking $200,000, allowing Cabot to reach their goal in four years; one full year earlier than expected.

The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM, 1510 AM and Sundays on YesFM, talked about Rig Counts, OPEC, a colder winter and much more last week.

YesFM broadcasts primarily in Sullivan and Bradford counties, with some ancillary coverage in neighboring counties and even over the border into New York.

Tesla Troubles Illustrate the Futility of Subsidized Energy

Elon Musk is a great con man but his Tesla troubles suggest that will only take you so far when your business is subsidized energy – milking the government.

Renewables and natural gas are natural partners; a point we’ve made numerous times here but many renewables advocates suppose they don’t need a partner, except for the government. No one better exemplifies this subsidized energy business model than Elon Musk, the pasty-faced trendy fellow who has captured the minds and hearts of millennials and investors desperately hoping to be on ground floor of the next Amazon.

Musk is a hustler’s hustler, though; a man with an imagination bigger than the universe and the ability to sell others on his visions. Nonetheless, a string of recent bad news for Tesla may signal the approaching end of his subsidized energy scam, requiring him to pack up the wagon and move on to the next town.

The Clean Power Plan Is Another Big Rock Candy Mountain

The Clean Power Plan doesn’t accomplish much of anything for climate and emissions, but it does expose environmentalist groups’ very foolish utopian mindset.  

There is an old adage that says “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” It’s sound advice in many ways. You need to know what your competition is doing and understand their mindset to appreciate how they come to choose certain actions and what they’re likely to do next.

DRBC Members Admit Gas Drilling and Fracking Is Safe? What Gives?

Members of the DRBC considering a fracking ban have just admitted the gas drilling and fracking are safe. What kind of political chicanery is going on here?

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) is composed of five members consisting of the states of Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania plus the Federal government represented by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (DRBC) is composed of four members consisting of the states of Maryland New York and Pennsylvania plus the Federal government represented by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The majority of both commissions consists of the same parties. What the SRBC knows, the DRBC knows and vice-versa. Moreover, they operate under virtually identical compacts. Both provide drinking water for millions. Yet, DRBC is pretending the threats to drinking water are so great that fracking must be banned, while the SRBC is admitting it is safe and has had no impact on water quality. Why is the DRBC lying?

Fracking the Delaware River Basin: It’s About Time!

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval

John J. Interval explains how fracking the Delaware River Basin would provide long term economic benefits, growth and jobs.

There is no overstating the importance of allowing fracking for natural gas in the Delaware River Basin. It could produce as much as $435 million worth of natural gas annually, bringing huge economic benefits and creating manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, according to a study done by Gerald Kauffman, director of the University of Delaware’s Delaware Water Resources Center.

The Rolling Blackouts of NIMBY Minds on Pipelines

… 

Threats of rolling blackouts are meaningless to fractivists and NIMBYs who imagine electricity appears magically without need of natural gas or pipelines.

It has seemed to us, anecdotally at least, that most of the media in Virginia has tilted left and anti-pipeline when covering stories about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) projects, both slated to cross the state. So imagine our surprise in reading an editorial from the editors of the Fredericksburg, VA Free Lance-Star that gives full-throated support for fracked shale gas pipelines.

The Dividing Line Between Upstate NY Distress and PA Success

Upstate NY has 53 “distressed communities.” Comparing the worst to two Pennsylvania shale communities shows us Gov. Corruptocrat’s fracking ban didn’t help.

The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association “dividing line” video tells a powerful story but the most compelling part of that story is told in Census data. The American Community Survey is the tool the Census Bureau uses to estimate population, incomes and the like on an annual basis. It has proven quite accurate and I went to it yesterday to check out the facts on a rural community in Chenango County, New York know as the Town of Plymouth. It’s not far from Norwich and part of the Southern Tier of New York that has been denied fracking by Gov. Corruptocrat at the behest of gentry class families hoping to empty out as much of Upstate as possible. Plymouth explains a lot.
