Natural Gas Industry Delivers Savings and Resilience in Abundance

Three recently released reports highlight natural gas industry economic benefits, as well as its resiliency and bright future in delivering consumer savings.

Natural gas touches every aspect of our daily lives, from fueling our stoves and cars, to producing electricity that charges our mobile phones, provides us with light and keeps us cool. Without energy, and in particular affordable natural gas, our lives and economy would come to a standstill.

Three recently released reports highlight the natural gas industry’s economic benefits, as well as its resiliency and bright future.

A Rocky Mountain High for Colorado Landowners? What About Us?

.

Colorado landowners have taken the initiative to protect themselves from fractivist policies intended to steal their land and deprive them of their rights.

There’s something exciting happening in the mountains and Colorado landowners are at the center of it. They are striking back at fractivist attempts to take their land under the guise of ludicrous regulations designed to stop all oil and gas development.

They have  put forth a Colorado Constitution amendment for consideration on the ballot this November. It is an amendment demanding Colorado landowners receive just compensation when either state or local government takes action diminishing the fair market value of their land. Godspeed! And, when can we get Pennsylvania and New York to do the same?

Bill in Congress Would Put Water Quality Certification Manners on Cuomo

A bill has now been introduced in the U.S. Senate that would put pipeline water quality certification manners on New York Gov. Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo.

Finally, Congress is starting to pay attention to the great gas robbery that has taken place in the Northeast. New York Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo has done everything he can stop pipelines that would provide much needed natural gas to places such as Boston. He’s primarily done it by instructing his DEC hacks to play games with water quality certification. Although FERC makes the decisions, states are given a role in the approval of interstate pipelines to ensure the designs and the routes are compatible with maintaining water quality. Corruptocrat has wildly abused the process and Congress may be ready to step in and put manners on this mob boss governor.

Great Scot! Someone’s Proposing Fracking in the Once Land of the Brave?

Scotland officially opposes fracking out of a fear of being politically incorrect, but hope arises in the once Land of the Brave as “fracking” is whispered.

The recent history of Scotland, home of William Wallace and “Land of the Brave,” where freedom was once worth fighting for, has been one of a long descent into feckless political correctness. Fracking is one of the latest victims, but a wonderful story in the Dundee Sunday Post indicates some Scots are ready to entertain it, if only through whispers.

What the DRBC Ought to be Doing Instead of Playing Fracking Games

The DRBC is fiddling with fracking games while Camden, Philadelphia, Trenton and Wilmington burn with a pollution fever caused by raw sewage in the Delaware.

The DRBC has spent massive energy, time and money pursuing an unjustified fracking ban at the behest of special interests. Those special interests (e.g., the Delaware Riverkeeper a/k/a Povertykeeper and the Clean Air Council) have been financed by uber-rich foundations such as the Heinz Endowments while it’s benefactors are invested in Ukrainian oil and gas.

Meanwhile, the Delaware River is being massively polluted with raw sewage the DRBC is doing nothing about and is incapable of solving. It’s fiddling with fracking games while raw sewage is being dumped into the river for the residents of Camden, Philadelphia, Trenton and Wilmington to deal with. So much for all its feigned DRBC concern over drinking water.

New York Energy Policy Is Now A Function of the Elitist Mobocracy

New York energy policy is now being determined through elitist mobocracy as policy-makers everywhere attempt to appease virtue-signaling trust-funder types.

New York energy policy is a complete disaster. Energy In Depth has a great piece up noting the insanity and pointing out what Andrew Cuomo recently told Politico:

“I don’t build any fossil-fuel plants anymore, and I banned fracking, and I have the most aggressive renewable goals in the country.”

EID also demolishes Gov. Corruprocrat’s plan to divest the New York State Common Retirement Fund from fossil fuel investments, a move that could cost New York State’s pensioners more than $1 trillion.

Meanwhile, a group of trendy types from Cooperstown motored a half-hour south to Oneonta to oppose a natural gas decompressor facility there on the theory businesses being forced to burn oil in the winter should go solar rather get the additional natural gas they need. It is, in both cases, an elitist mobocracy that is setting New York energy policy.

The DRBC Has A Train Wreck As New Jersey Pollutes the Delaware

The DRBC justification for a fracking ban just derailed with a train wreck that dumped New Jersey’s waste, on the way to New York, into the Delaware River.

The DRBC’s juvenile justification for its proposed framework ban is essentially “My God, there could be an accident” or something like that. There was a railroad accident yesterday and it dumped fuel oil and waste from New Jersey into the West Branch of the Delaware River. It had zero to do with fracking, proving what a train wreck the DRBC fracking ban really is.

The Remarkable Cost Advantage of Natural Gas vs. Renewables

natural gas now - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Green energy fanatics keep telling us renewables are coming cost competitive but the cost advantage of natural gas continues to be insurmountable for them.

A week rarely goes by at the EIA’s Today on Energy blog without some wonderful news on the cost advantage of natural gas. Yesterday’s post is a perfect example. The title, “Average U.S. construction costs for solar and wind continued to fall in 2016,” leads one to briefly suppose the green energy fanatics might have a point; that costs of renewables are getting cheaper and it’s only a matter of time before the green energy future arrives. That will, perhaps, someday become reality, but the cost advantage of natural gas is nowhere near being wiped out, let alone seriously being seriously challenged.
