FERC Smacks Corruptocrat Again on Millennium Case

FERC has smacked Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” and his DEC hacks yet again in promptly denying a re-hearing request and calling out the state’s duplicity.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has clearly had it with New York, its politically corrupt governor and his environmental political hack, Basil Seggos. Seggos, of course, is Commissioner of the Empire State’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and his job is bend its will to that of Governor Corruptocrat and the NRDC gang which both he and the Cuomo are eager to appease.

FERCIt was only late October when Millennium Pipeline asked FERC to declare DEC had waived its authority to act on Millenniuum’s application for Section 401 Water Quality Certification by taking more than the year permitted under the Clean Water Act. That was followed by a quick FERC decision in Millennium’s favor,  prompting DEC to request a rehearing from FERC, which the latter has already denied. Moreover, the denial is 24 pages of fairly direct accusations of DEC duplicity. There can no question, at this point; it’s war and DEC has been put on defense for a change.

Is Tom Wolf Just Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Bobblehead?

Radical billionaire Tom Steyer threw money at Tom Wolf’s campaign for Pennsylvania Governor. Is he now treating the governor as his personal bobblehead?

Ever since Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania’s trust-funder governor, suddenly decided to pursue a fracking ban within the jurisdiction of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) I’ve wondered why. It makes no sense whatsoever, as the governing majority of the DRBC (Pennsylvania, New York and the Feds) is exactly the same as it is for the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) where fracking has long been permitted. Both rivers are sources of drinking water and SRBC stream quality has been unaffected, So, why would Wolf suddenly decide to treat DRBC region residents as second-class citizens?

Well, there may be an answer by the name of Tom Steyer. The evidence, to be sure, is circumstantial, but the connections are just a little too coincidental for comfort.

Natural Gas Substitution for Coal Keeps Reducing Emissions

Natural gas substitution for coal in electric power generation has consistently reduced carbon emissions on that score, making it the best of all tools.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) keep count and the score on carbon emissions from electric power generation just keeps getting better. Why? Because natural gas substitution for coal in the electric power sector is sill taking place, reducing emissions associated with coal. EIA, in fact, tells us “Total energy-related CO2 emissions fell in 2016 and are projected to fall in 2017 and rise in 2018, based on EIA’s latest Short-Term Energy Outlook projection.”

Fake Fractivist News from Reuters Puts the Lie to “Freedom from Bias”

Reuters says “freedom from bias.. shall at all times be fully preserved” but the news service’s reporting of fake fractivist news says just the opposite.

A news story out today from Reuters illustrate just how much fake fractivist news there is out there and how incredible stealthily it’s done. Titled simply as “U.S. Justice pledges to prosecute activists who damage pipelines,” it sounds innocuous enough but a close reading indicates its anything but that. It’s biased to the very core.

Job-Killing Sierra Club Killed in Court, Atlantic Sunrise Proceeds

The job-killing Sierra Club and other gentry class shills who stopped the Atlantic Sunrise construction for a moment have themselves been killed in court.

When the DC Court of Appeals issued a stay the other day that put 2,500 Atlantic Sunrise workers out of jobs, it seemed a bit strange. The DC Court has not been particularly friendly toward the attempts of the Sierra Club and other gentry class fractivist shills to overrule FERC with rehearsing requests and the like, although it’s made some weird decisions in other respects.

The latest delay maneuver pulled in the Atlantic Sunrise was frivolous on its face, after all. But, the Court inexplicably issued the stay anyway so, it said, to have time to review the matter. Now, faster than a speeding bullet, it has dissolved the stay.  The Williams motion to dismiss was particularly effective, it seems, and there may be a reason why

Here’s How to Lift Up Puerto Rico with Our Natural Gas

The devastation that hit Puerto Rico is an opportunity to build a new energy future for the Commonwealth with our natural gas, helping us at the same time.

There was a Congressional hearing the other day focused on the efforts to help Puerto Rico recover from the recent hurricane damage that so devastated the island. Something very interesting came out of the discussion that could be the basis of some great initiatives of benefit to just about everyone. It’s all about LNG and how shipping the stuff produced on the mainland could be a big boon to our fellow Americans from the Island of Enchantment as well as those who live in our rural areas where shale gas is produced.

Food and Water Watch Is Conning Taxpayers in Every Way

Food and Water Watch is a completely radical organization that is conning taxpayers by using loopholes in the tax code to operate politically as a charity.

Yesterday, one of our readers sent me a news story about Chester County, Pennsylvania election results. The Philadelphia Inquirer article, written by Andrew Maykuth, noted “Opponents of Sunoco Pipeline’s Mariner East project won seats on the governing boards of two Chester County townships Tuesday in elections that had become referendums on the controversial pipeline.” While that was hardly surprising, what was disturbing was what came later in the story; a tale of how a supposed public charity called Food and Water Watch had deeply involved itself in those elections by using some subterfuge the IRS and others, including far too many in the oil and gas industry, are only too happy to ignore.

Northeast Supply Enhancement Will Heat NYC Housing with Gas

The Williams Northeast Supply Enhancement project will help heat NYC public housing with clean natural gas, improving the health of all New Yorkers.

Back In August, I wrote here about just how dependent New York City is on natural gas, some 81% of the Con Edison supply already coming from Pennsylvania shale gas in 2015. The New York Building Congress had issued a report titled Electricity Outlook: Powering New York City’s Future that unequivocally articulated the need for more pipelines to deliver that gas to the city:

New pipeline capacity for natural gas with direct connection to New YorkCity and Westchester County will be necessary to provide sufficient gas supplies to meet the expected growth in demand. FERC should promptly approve the recent application for Transco’s [Williams’] Northeast Supply Enhancement project. In addition, the State and City should work together to convene a working group of key stakeholders, including utilities and natural gas suppliers, to develop a strategy for the planning and approval of new natural gas pipelines directly into New York City…

FERC is expected, not too long from now, to issue an Environmental Impact Statement on the Northeast Supply Enhancement project but we’re learning more and details already about that project and its contributions to the health and well-being of New Yorkers, including those living in public housing`projects.
