… 

The US shale gas industry is, with new LNG export capacity, in position to dominate a new world order in energy with benefits for us and emerging nations.

There’s something new and beautiful happening as a result of the US shale gas industry. Our nation is now in position to dominate a new world order in energy with huge benefits to rural America and nations around the world who are emerging from poverty. It’s a story of exports, something we’ve not done so well at it in a very long time. It’s about shale gas produced in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas that is being converted to LNG and sold to Egypt, Mexico and Japan. It offers a demonstration of just how important energy infrastructure is to this country if we want to maximize the benefits of the shale revolution.

PA DEP Wants Reward for Doing Poorly!

… 

PA DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell had the audacity to blame poor performances by some of its regional offices on lack of money even though it get $728 million.

PA DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell was as well spoken at his Senate Budget hearing as he was when the House Appropriations Committee interviewed him. He certainly has the right professional temperament for his job, but that didn’t make his answers any better when it came to DEP permitting delays. He blamed it on a lack of money, of course, and wants to be rewarded with more of it, despite horrific delays and disparities among his regional offices in issuing routine erosion and sedimentation permits.

The Mobile Offshore Learning Unit (MOLU) is a fun, hands-on learning approach to teaching energy education and it is on the way to Pennsylvania.

Cabot is excited to announce the Mobile Offshore Learning Unit, or MOLU, is visiting Pennsylvania. This unit, created by the Offshore Energy Center, features six self-contained learning centers with curriculum-based, hands-on activities about energy and the technologies and sciences involved with the oil and natural gas industry with a curriculum based on state and national standards.

CELDF Seeks to Seize Municipalities and Turn Them Into Torpedos

Tom Linzey, the over-stuffed radical child who leads the CELDF, wants to seize municipalities and turn them into torpedoes in his revolutionary power grab.

No group has more abused local government than the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), which would have everyone believe its the advocate of home rule and the government that’s closest to the people. The CELDF stands for democracy and “community rights” it says, but it’s actions speak to a different agenda, one that gleefully talks of municipalities as mere material to forge into torpedoes for its war against civil society.

Tom Linzey is the forger-in-chief at the CELDF. A trust-funder type who’s never worked at real job, he and his girl friend Stacey Schmader formed the CELDF right after he graduated from law school. He’s been living off it since, prancing around the country like some sort of radical warrior throwing spears from behind the lectern. He has used and abused one naive municipality after another attaching himself to any cause he can to promote himself and his thoroughly radical agenda. His inflated ego is getting the better of him, though, as he brags to extremist supporters how he has manipulated local officials.

… 

New York DEC, for the third time since Prince Corruptocrat was re-elected, has been hit with major legal challenges over its unconscionable pipeline delays.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), on February 3, approved a long-delayed project — National Fuel Gas Company’s (NFG) Northern Access 2016 pipeline project. The $455 million project includes building 97 miles of new pipeline along a power line corridor from northwestern Pennsylvania up to Erie County, New York. The project also calls for 3 miles of new pipeline further up, in Niagara County, along with a new compressor station in the Town of Pendleton. Although FERC has now given permission to build it, the State of New York, specifically the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), must issue stream crossing permits. Sound familiar? Well, it should.

Ohio EPA Making Pennsylvania Look Like New York?

… 

Recent actions by the Ohio EPA to both upgrade and streamline its natural gas regulations while Pennsylvania complicates them raises the specter of New York.

New York has always been difficult. I well recall many years working on some branch line railroad issues in the Empire State and confronting a whole floor of regulators in their Department of Transportation. I was used to dealing in Pennsylvania where three people did the work of 30+ New Yorkers. But, times have changed. Pennsylvania, under Tom Wolf, now seeks to emulate New York’s self-defeating style, especially when it comes to natural gas regulation. The Ohio EPA is putting our DEP to shame, managing to get plaudits from both environmentalists and natural gas company while we attempt to drown our biggest economic drivers in a sea of regulations. The Ohio EPA is making us, God forbid, look more like New York every day.

Wolf Administration Loses All Credibility on Severance Tax

… 

The Wolf Administration blew it at a PA Senate Appropriations hearing this week, proving just how little thought has gone into its severance tax proposal.

There’s no doubt the PA House Appropriation hearing was rough on the Wolf Administration when it came to its severance tax proposal, but the Senate hearing was a flash flood wipeout. Senator Scott Martin (Republican, Lancaster County) did the damage, and very effectively so, starting at 43:17 in this PCN video of the proceedings. It only took a few minutes.

Gov. Wolf show us you support PA jobs, affordable natural gas and the energy industry by moving the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline forward.

It’s no secret that elected officials from across America are now prioritizing natural gas infrastructure. Why? Because they recognize the tremendous economic benefits associated with a strong energy industry. As well as the need to ensure a reliable supply of clean, affordable fuel for economic development, making electricity and heating homes. It is now Gov. Tom Wolf’s turn to show he, too, cares about giving a boost to Pennsylvania’s energy industry, creating local jobs and stimulating economic development. How? By supporting the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project.

The Lushes Behind the Atlantic Sunrise Opposition

… 

Atlantic Sunrise pipeline opposition is being funded by ultra-hypocritical Lush Cosmetics which uses virtue signaling to sell its products to trendies.

Ding dong; Lush is calling. A British cosmetics company (think UK version of Avon), looking to get bought-and-paid-for publicity here in the states, has donated $22,000 to the anti-Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline group, Lancaster Against Pipelines (LAP). Anti-drilling losers like those in LAP would flare out if not for the backing of companies and Big Green groups with deep pockets.
