Times Up, Governor Cuomo: You Said You’d Revisit Fracking After Studies

….
….  

Governor Cuomo, in 2014, said he’d revisit his fracking decision if the data later showed fracking was safe. There are now several such studies. It’s time.

Governor Cuomo, on December 17,  2014, following a second-term election victory, made his infamous fracking decision with a view to burnishing his radical credentials. Being Governor Cuomo, though, he wanted a way out later if needed. He promised, therefore, to revisit the fracking issue on behalf of New York should science come out in support of the safety of fracking for purposes of developing our state’s natural gas resources. Well, Governor Gumby, that time has come and is past due.

Delaware Riverkeeper Asks DRBC to Stop Mariner East; Will It Regret It?

The Delaware Riverkeeper is forcing an issue with respect to DRBC authority and may (one hopes) come to regret it as others are forced to challenge both.

Here’s the latest strategy in THE Delaware Riverkeeper’s ongoing war against fossil fuels, and against natural gas pipelines in particular: Pressure the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to revoke a permit granted by the agency to the Mariner East 2 (ME2) pipeline project on the flimsy basis that ME2 has “violated” the conditions of the permit. Frankly, we didn’t even know the DRBC had issued a permit for ME2. After all, ME2 is a state-permitted project and does not come under federal authority.

Sea Levels Rise, But Not From Natural Gas or Other Fossil Fuels!

FrackingGeorge P. Ahearn, Phd
Co-founder and Former President and CEO
GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc.

Sea levels are rising but modestly and attempts to link this to use of natural gas or other fossil fuels or, for that matter, CO2, are just plain wrong.

Regardless of what you hear from the SW Florida Conservancy, and other sooth-sayers and saviors of the planet, data is mounting that change in sea levels has nothing to do with the use of fossil fuels and evidence should ally any fear that additional CO2 will increase sea-level rise.

Wind Farms Are Not Only Expensive They Are Terribly Noisy

Energy Research

….
….  

Northeast States are turning to wind farms hoping for relief from high energy bills, they’re finding out wind energy is not only expensive but very noisy.

Brazil, the world’s eighth largest producer of wind power, has erected wind turbines off its Atlantic coast where the wind blows consistently and the noise is constant. Recently, officials in Massachusetts and Rhode Island announced contracts for two large offshore wind farms off Martha’s Vineyard. Massachusetts is planning to build an 800-megawatt wind farm with over 100 turbines about 15 miles south of the Vineyard.

Serial Protesters Run An Environmental Racism Scam in Nicetown

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

Serial protesters operating under multiple names are behind an utterly despicable environmental racism protest against a natural gas power plant SEPTA plans.

Bet you didn’t know that the environment has become racist. That’s the outrageous claim being made about Nicetown, PA (near Philadelphia). Big Green supporters in Nicetown are opposed to SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) plans to build a Marcellus gas-powered electric plant that would provide electricity to SEPTA’s northern Regional Rail lines and a bus garage. The stated reason for their opposition is because the plant will burn an evil, nasty, vile “fossil fuel.”

David Spigelmyer, President of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, powerfully testified at the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee hearing on Monday and here’s what he had to say.

House Committee Told It’s All About Equity, Fairness and Justice Missing at DRBC

Betty Sutliff, retired public school teacher, UDRBC secretary and former NWPOA officer, had a message for the DRBC yesterday; it’s all about the justice.

Good morning, Chairman Metcalfe and members of the State House Government Committee.  My name is Betty Sutliff and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to speak today.  

I would like to address the double standard that exists between the Delaware River Basin and the Susquehanna River Basin in Pennsylvania with regard to the extraction of natural gas and the injustice of that double standard.  As a retired teacher, my first step in preparing for today, of course, was to consult Merriam-Webster and others with my sights focused on the words “unjust” and “injustice.”
