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?

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

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval
Professional Petroleum Geologist.

 

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

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

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.

Natural Gas and Conservation Go Hand-in-Hand at Cross Creek County Park

Range ResourcesRange Resources

 

For Cross Creek County Park, natural gas development has brought tremendous benefits and much needed upgrades, all while protecting the environment.

When Washington County signed a lease with Range Resources to develop natural gas in Cross Creek County Park, the county and the company came together on two common goals: responsibly develop the resources under the 2,000-acre park, and provide maximum benefit to the taxpayers and residents of Washington County.

Recently, the county unveiled a brand-new walking trail. Just over three miles, the trail begins near the new Thompson Hill boat launch and playground area.

The walking trail is the culmination of a multi-year partnership between the county and Range Resources that has also included upgrades like new playgrounds, a new boat launch area, new pavilions, parking and restrooms in Cross Creek County Park and in other County parks.

FERC: Full Speed Ahead to Greenlight Pipeline Projects

 

LNG - Robert Bradly, JRRobert Bradley, Jr.
Founder and CEO of the Institute for Energy Research.

….
….  

FERC, with its new appointees, is now addressing its backlog and swiftly moving forward to greenlight much needed pipeline projects.

We aren’t counting our chickens yet, but the approvals would certainly be a net positive for midstream industry growth, and, ultimately, for producers and consumers of natural gas.

-Ethan Bellamy (managing director, Robert W. Baird & Co.) quoted in Catherine Traywick’s “U.S. Energy Agency to Take on $50 Billion Backlog as Senate Acts.” Bloomberg Politics, August 3, 2017.

The Senate recently confirmed two new appointees to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, ending a seven-month dormancy due to lack of a quorum. With three members, two Republicans and one Democrat, one pick from each party remains for a full five-member commission.

This delay, on top of a fossil-fuel animus by Obama’s FERC, has created a $13 billion backlog of regulatory approvals for 17 market-ready natural gas projects. With its other business, FERC’s total project backlog represents $50 billion. FERC should begin greenlighting projects immediately.

New York’s Clean Energy Standard Is Merely Virtue Signaling

SolarInstitute for
Energy Research

….
….  

New York State’s Clean Energy Standard Is but symbolic environmentalism accomplishing almost nothing with respect to emissions or the welfare of New Yorkers.

A recent report evaluated New York State’s clean energy programs and found them costing the state’s consumers and businesses over $1 trillion with no measurable impact on world climate. Thus, the carbon dioxide reductions that would cost the state’s residents heavily would have no value. This is nothing new; New York finds numerous ways to tax its people with little benefit to show for it.

Lancaster General Hospital Does Hypocrisy on Natural Gas

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

Lancaster General Hospital has, in perhaps the most glaring example of fracking hypocrisy ever, chosen to promote fractivist politics by one of its staff.

Perhaps it’s time for those who support using clean-burning natural gas to find a new hospital, if they live in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area. In the fall edition of The Journal of Lancaster General Hospital, an anti-fossil fuel doctor who practices at the hospital published an outrageous political smear job pretending to be a scientific article. It is full of lies about natural gas, its extraction and its “pollution” of the environment. Worse, Lancaster General Hospital, like the radical nuns of Lancaster County, and with stunning hypocrisy brags about its own natural gas use.

Coal and Nuclear Subsidy Cram Down Brings Everyone Else Together

Principal, Silent Majority Strategies, LLC

 

Proposed Federal coal and nuclear energy subsidies unite everyone else, forging a natural coalition of natural gas and renewables so many try hard to avoid.

Eleven very diverse energy trade groups (the Energy Trade Associations) have weighed in with FERC against the DOE’s nuclear and coal subsidy rule (a/k/a guaranteed profit rule), which DOE calls the “Grid Resiliency Pricing Rule.” The diversity of the group is notable and speaks volumes; it includes renewable energy groups, oil and gas groups, electricity consumers, rural electric cooperatives, and natural gas pipeline interests. Everyone but coal and nuclear groups of course who would be the recipient of the public largesse should the NOPR become law.
