New York Energy Prices Are Too Damn High and There’s A Reason

….  

New York energy prices are out of control, says Vic Furman, and the fault lies with politicians who have, for the most selfish reasons, blocked development.

Here in Andrew Cuomo’s New York, I am paying nearly $6.00 a gallon for propane. I do expect it to drop some, now that winter’s over, but it will. no doubt, go right back up in four short months when Fall weather returns.

We here in New York have lost the opportunity to take advantage of the same cheap reliable clean energy as Susquehanna County, due to corrupt politicians such as Cuomo, and Eric Schneiderman, combined with the efforts of a small anti-gas crowd enabled and echoed through funding provided by elitist foundations and, apparently, Vladimir Putin.

The Life and Times of Guy S. Williams, Pipeline Welder

Pipeline WelderGuy S. Williams
Recording Secretary
Pipeliners Local Union 798

 

Guy S. Williams, a long time member and Recording Secretary of Pipeliners Local Union 798, tells the story of his life and times as a pipeline welder.

My life began on a hot July day in 1950, when I was born to the union of Billy Ray and Jean Williams. We lived in a small shotgun house on my Grandfather’s farm. It was a cotton and cattle farm, a place I thought was a little piece of heaven and, consequently, loved. 

My days consisted of going to school at a small country school, then coming home and going to the field to work until dark. I didn’t know we were poor because everyone had about the same thing. We, meaning my two brothers and my Mom, were always busy. 

We had a lot of cows, several hundred head, so consequently we were always either grinding feed or feeding cows. We would grind at night and feed in the morning and I would help my Mom milk two cows before school. This is to what I attribute my own strong work ethic.

Deep Green Resistance Uses Court in Bid to Destroy Civilization

keep-it-in-the-ground

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

  

Deep Green Resistance types are manipulating courts in what are naked attempts to impose their own political wills upon civil society so as to destroy it.

Deep Green Resistance—a global support center for the most violent eco-terrorists on the planet—is a big supporter of the “climate necessity defense” movement.

In their violent manifesto, “Decisive Ecological Warfare,” they describe (and endorse) a not-too-distant future where “well-organized underground militants would make coordinated attacks on energy infrastructure around the world,” while “aboveground activists … push for acceptance and normalization of more militant ad radical tactics where appropriate.”

Facts, Not Overstated Claims of Environmental Morality, Should Decide

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

 

British Columbia hypocrisy on pipeline issues is a case of BC vs. PC, the latter being political correctness on environmental morality that ignores facts.

Those of us involved in the energy industry in the United States have watched as states like New York and Massachusetts try to usurp the Federal government’s power to approve and permit interstate pipelines.  Our issues seem like child’s play, however, compared to the goings on in the Canadian West.

Did Cuomo’s Fracking Ban Create A New York Willing to Ban Any Energy Project?

Solar and wind energy projects in New York are facing the same struggles natural gas faced years ago; being over regulated and nobody wants them in their town.

In June 2014, New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, reaffirmed two lower court rulings that empowers townships and municipalities across the state to strip away property owners’ rights to allow drilling and other energy projects. NY’s high court ruled in the “Middlefield” and “Dryden” cases that local municipalities have the right to regulate energy development within their jurisdictions–where it can and cannot happen.

The seeds planted with the “Dryden” and “Middlefield” cases has sprouted and is now in full bloom–like spring daffodils. So-called “renewable” energy projects are now being blocked using the very same decisions meant to block natural gas drilling–delicious irony that puts a big, fat smile on our face.

… 

Cabot has once again shown its commitment to the local community by donating nearly $45,000 in safety equipment to fire companies in Susquehanna County.

Seventeen fire companies in Susquehanna County were the recipients of a variety of safety equipment from Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation last week. Over the course of April 25 and 26, nearly $45,000 worth of equipment procured by Taylor Rental/BX3 Supply was warmly received by fire company representatives. Cabot officials also invited the firefighters to make arrangements at their convenience to visit gas pads and other sites to acquaint themselves with new technologies and potential concerns.

Now Admitted: Broome County Solar Farm Deal Was A Very Bad One Indeed

….
….  

Vic Furman scores a big victory by simply asking questions about the Broome County Solar Farm that was supposed to save taxpayer so much money but hasn’t.

Back in February, I wrote a post here about a Broome County solar farm deal with SolarCity that was supposed to create big savings for taxpayers but has long set idle after completion. I raised a bunch of questions and then followed up with a Freedom of Information request to the county for all the documents related to the project.

Now, as a result of those inquiries, the county has been forced to admit the deal everyone bragged about at the outset was a loser and the realization of that is what caused the county to insist on a better deal before it put the project online. However, the word from the county is that the new deal will generate even less savings than the old and that one was clearly a loser.
