Bill in Congress Would Put Water Quality Certification Manners on Cuomo

A bill has now been introduced in the U.S. Senate that would put pipeline water quality certification manners on New York Gov. Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo.

Finally, Congress is starting to pay attention to the great gas robbery that has taken place in the Northeast. New York Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo has done everything he can stop pipelines that would provide much needed natural gas to places such as Boston. He’s primarily done it by instructing his DEC hacks to play games with water quality certification. Although FERC makes the decisions, states are given a role in the approval of interstate pipelines to ensure the designs and the routes are compatible with maintaining water quality. Corruptocrat has wildly abused the process and Congress may be ready to step in and put manners on this mob boss governor.

California Solar Mandate Will Cost More Than Anyone Was Told

Stephen Heins
Energy Consultant
“The Word Merchant”

 

Stephen Heins reveals the insanity of a California solar mandate, which will deepen the impacts of the energy debacle in which the state is already mired.

California’s new solar mandate will cost much more than anyone was told, writes Steven Sexton at the Wall Street Journal. Essentially, the public sector, together with well-funded politically active environmental groups, have decided to impose their will on the rest of us for the sake of money, more power and secular salvation as apostles of political correctness.

Great Scot! Someone’s Proposing Fracking in the Once Land of the Brave?

Scotland officially opposes fracking out of a fear of being politically incorrect, but hope arises in the once Land of the Brave as “fracking” is whispered.

The recent history of Scotland, home of William Wallace and “Land of the Brave,” where freedom was once worth fighting for, has been one of a long descent into feckless political correctness. Fracking is one of the latest victims, but a wonderful story in the Dundee Sunday Post indicates some Scots are ready to entertain it, if only through whispers.

What the DRBC Ought to be Doing Instead of Playing Fracking Games

The DRBC is fiddling with fracking games while Camden, Philadelphia, Trenton and Wilmington burn with a pollution fever caused by raw sewage in the Delaware.

The DRBC has spent massive energy, time and money pursuing an unjustified fracking ban at the behest of special interests. Those special interests (e.g., the Delaware Riverkeeper a/k/a Povertykeeper and the Clean Air Council) have been financed by uber-rich foundations such as the Heinz Endowments while it’s benefactors are invested in Ukrainian oil and gas.

Meanwhile, the Delaware River is being massively polluted with raw sewage the DRBC is doing nothing about and is incapable of solving. It’s fiddling with fracking games while raw sewage is being dumped into the river for the residents of Camden, Philadelphia, Trenton and Wilmington to deal with. So much for all its feigned DRBC concern over drinking water.

Dear Abby: Can You Tell Me How to Save Upstate New York?

Vic Furman does a fictitious “Dear Abby” column asking for advice on how to save Upstate New York from a corrupt, tyrannical governor bent on destroying it.

Dear Abby,

I live in Upstate New York. It is the highest taxed state in the country with respect to combined state and federal taxes. It is such a beautiful and scenic state and therein lies the problem, or at least part of it. You see, although New York City has grown in population, Upstate New York has lost hundreds of thousands of thousands of residents due to high taxes and cost of living that flow from the fact the Big Apple dominates the state.

Some city folks will shrug their shoulders and say “Well, if you can’t afford it, then move or sell what you have before you lose it.” They’re only to happy to pick our land for a song as a playground. Governor Cuomo’s answer, of course, is raising taxes on those who stay in New York to make up for those who left. It seems nobody really gives a damn about Upstate New York.

New York Energy Policy Is Now A Function of the Elitist Mobocracy

New York energy policy is now being determined through elitist mobocracy as policy-makers everywhere attempt to appease virtue-signaling trust-funder types.

New York energy policy is a complete disaster. Energy In Depth has a great piece up noting the insanity and pointing out what Andrew Cuomo recently told Politico:

“I don’t build any fossil-fuel plants anymore, and I banned fracking, and I have the most aggressive renewable goals in the country.”

EID also demolishes Gov. Corruprocrat’s plan to divest the New York State Common Retirement Fund from fossil fuel investments, a move that could cost New York State’s pensioners more than $1 trillion.

Meanwhile, a group of trendy types from Cooperstown motored a half-hour south to Oneonta to oppose a natural gas decompressor facility there on the theory businesses being forced to burn oil in the winter should go solar rather get the additional natural gas they need. It is, in both cases, an elitist mobocracy that is setting New York energy policy.

Beware of California Energy Policies: Be Very Afraid In Fact

Vic FurmanVictor Furman
Upstate New York Landowner Shale Gas Activist

….
….  

California energy policies have led to an unmitigated energy disaster not unlike Germany’s Energiewende but some New Yorkers, of course, want to bring it on.

Back in July I was quoted in Binghamton PressConnects article regarding the Broome County solar farm I’ve also written about on this blog. I said a lie was “being pushed upon the community about solar energy,” and that I thought the public was “being shammed” along with the environment as “over 1,000 mature trees were cut down to build the solar project.” This generated a letter to the editor from contributor Leo Cotnoir titled “The true cost of fossil fuels.” It was all conjecture and I had to respond with some facts. I did so by relating what’s happening as a result of California energy policies Cotnoir seems to want to see implemented in New York. God forbid!

Harrisburg politicians earn Pinocchio points in a new video by the Clear Energy Alliance which clearly explains the PA severance tax issue.

A killer video on the topic of a severance tax in Pennsylvania has just been published (on Youtube) by the Clear Energy Alliance. The severance tax issue is one that we’ve tracked and written about for years–since Ed “fast Eddie” Rendell was governor.
