How Long Will the NRDC Gang Continue to Run New York?

… 

The NRDC gang has running New York DEC under Andrew Cuomo’s administration, denying fracking and several pipelines. Is it about to receive a comeuppance?

New York State has authority granted to it by the federal government to award stream crossing permits under Section 401 of the federal Clean Water Act. The New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), for purely political reasons and under the direction of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has refused to do so – not only for the Constitution, but also for a second major pipeline project in the western part of the state (NFG’s Northern Access Pipeline project).

According to an analyst from Height Securities, there is “political will” in Washington “to strip New York of its permitting authority.” Andrew Cuomo has gone rogue. He ignores federal law. Will Washington allow NY to continue thumbing its nose at the law? It looks like this is a battle royale between Donald Trump and Andrew Cuomo.

Heinz Endowment Shills Launch Attack on Penn Township

… 

Anti’s will hold a workshop in Penn Township to teach the pubic to navigate DEP’s website and look for any new or changed permits for shale drilling, but why?

This is a heads-up to drillers and landowners in Westmoreland County, PA (essentially a Pittsburgh suburb). A group of virulent anti-drillers, funded with money from Big Green groups like the Philadelphia-based and misnamed Clean Air Council, are running a “workshop” to train nutters how to spot any changes in permits for shale wells–so they can, do what?

Today’s Fractivists Are Yesterday’s Gaslight Opponents

Steingraber - Tom Reynolds Reports

Tom Reynolds
Co-Founder of Dryden Safe Energy Coalition

 

The more things change, the more they’re the same. When it comes to things like gaslight opposition then and fracking now, there’s always been naysayers.

It’s amazing how little changes with respect to human nature. We can easily this in retrospect. It provides us the proper skepticism with which to take modern-day opposition to both fracking and natural gas development. Robert Daley, in his book, The World Beneath The City, describes some reactions to the installation of gas lighting in New York City in 1825. His material is eye-opening for anyone familiar with the arguments over fracking in upstate New York.

Lying Lancaster Pipeline Opponents Up to No Good

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

… 

Lancaster pipeline opponents are up to no good. When they protest attempts to protect public health and safety and lie about their intent, trouble’s ahead.

This one has us spitting nails. We have reported, for months, about the activities of so-called protesters against Williams’ $3 billion Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline project. In particular, there is a group in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania opposing the pipeline that is not so creatively named Lancaster Against Pipelines (LAP). Some of their members previously attended and participated in protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, North Dakota; protests that turned violent and destroyed millions of dollars in equipment. In February, the chief organizer of LAP, Mark Clatterbuck, who participated in the illegal activities in North Dakota last year, announced he intends to bring that kind of mayhem to Lancaster County. Clatterbuck set his plans in motion in March and what he’s up to now is no good.

Blocking Pipelines Destroys Jobs and Raises Energy Prices

….
….  

A Chamber of Commerce study confirms the northeast states fighting against pipelines are losing good-paying jobs and paying extremely high energy prices.

In a new report, the Chamber of Commerce quantified the economic and job losses arising from limiting natural gas infrastructure development in the U.S. Northeast where several states, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, have denied construction of natural gas pipelines. According to the report, if no new pipelines are built, it would cost the region over 78,000 jobs and $7.6 billion in GDP by the year 2020, and the displacement of over $4.4 billion in labor income.

Where Was Cuomo When the Lights Went Out? A Week Without Fuel!

….
….  

Vic Furman notes Governor Andrew Cuomo was completely absent from the scene when lights went out in Upstate New York. If it weren’t for roughnecks….

Monday Night, 7:00 PM: The rain blocked out any view from my window! The wind made my house vibrate and my power went out together with those of over 30,000 other people in Broome and Chenango Counties. I didn’t know it wouldn’t be until the following Friday morning I would get power back. I had no water, no phone, no radio or TV, no internet access. I flushed my toilet with pond water (lucky to have a pond).

Monday Night, 11:00 PM: I conceded to myself that this power outage would be an all-nighter and went to bed by candle light. It was just the beginning!

The Senate Needs to Restore Reason on Methane Emissions

Methane RuleThomas J. Pyle
President of the American Energy Alliance

…  

Thomas J. Pyle explains why the regulation of methane emissions on Federal lands are over the top and need to be rescinded to restore any sense of reason.

Our friends at the Institute for Energy Research shared this guest post with us, which was recently published in Morning Consult.

This past February, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to repeal a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) regulation dealing with methane venting and flaring on federal lands. However, more than two months later, the Senate has failed to take up the resolution.

Passing this resolution should not be controversial, even for the Senate. The methane regulation is unnecessary, costly, and clearly outside of the BLM’s jurisdiction.
