The Politics of Energy Don’t Score Easily, But Some Things Are Predictable

"Environmentalists" - MarkindDaniel B. Markind, Esq.
Weir and Partners, LLP

 

The politics of energy don’t fit neatly on a scorecard but some things are predictable, including legislation to thwart fractivist pipeline obstruction.

Pipeline construction continues to be the prime mover in summer energy news. On Thursday, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection gave Sunoco Logistics permission to restart completion of two of the four remaining unfinished areas of Mariner East 2 pipeline. Work has been suspended since May following the development of sinkholes in Chester County. The pipeline is approximately 98% complete and the DEP is reviewing plans for the final two areas.

You’re Not Great at All, Governor Cuomo. In Fact, You’re Pretty Awful.

Vic Furman reacts to Governor Cuomo’s “America was never that great” comment and explains how Andy has systematically destroyed hope for Upstate New York.

“As for making America great, America was never that great!”

So says the great divider who serves as our New York State Governor, Andrew Cuomo; the man-child raised with a silver spoon in his mouth and a ticket to political office in his rear pocket.

You have to live in Upstate New York to fully appreciate the nastiness of Cuomo’s statement. You have to be a struggling farmer, a land owner or a home owner to truly take in the full breadth of Cuomo’s latest insult to Upstate citizens.

How Environmental Extremists Exploit the Rules for Profit

environmental extremists.

Environmental extremists such as the NRDC and Sierra Club are exploiting environmental impact rules to slow energy infrastructure development and profit.

The Update to the Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) could not have come soon enough. When it was first signed into law in 1970, NEPA served as a way for federal agencies to consider the impacts of their actions, helping them to balance a range of interests. Today, NEPA is a massively expensive and time-consuming liability that threatens to derail crucial infrastructure and energy development projects. NEPA, as it currently operates, is the model of an outdated regulation that has been exploited beyond recognition from its original purpose.

The Lure of Judicial Activism for Environmental Extremists

Keep It Grounded In Fact
(American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers)

  

Fractivists and other “keep-it-iin-the-ground” folks cannot resist the lure of judicial activism and neither can some judges, which is why they pursue it.

When it comes to legal strategy, the “Keep It in the Ground” folks are taking their cue from Frank Sinatra’s hit song “High Hopes” about a “silly old ram [who] thought he’d punch a hole in a dam.”  Against all logic and multiple courtroom losses, they keep launching the same fatally flawed argument—that the courts should dictate climate policy—hoping to bust through that “billion-kilowatt dam.”

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.

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

Vic FurmanVictor Furman

….

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.

Beware of California Energy Policies: Be Very Afraid In Fact

Vic FurmanVictor Furman

….

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!
