New York’s Renewable Plan Will Create Energy Poor

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Governor Cuomo’s renewable plan for New York State’s energy will surely fail, as it has in Germany, making its people energy poor.

November’s election and the incoming President’s appointees have seeded the clouds in Central New York for a rain of Letters to the Editor regarding gas. The letters run the table on the evils of gas development (it’s-the-end-of-the-world) and Constitution Pipeline (it’s-the-end-of-the-world, only-closer.) The writers don’t believe gas will be our bridge fuel to the future.

Sorry to disappoint these folks, but natural gas is bridging the future right now, even as they’re putting pen to paper. Gas is providing this bridge without massive subsidies and hidden costs.

The Constitution Pipeline Endorsed by Otsego County

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Otsego County recognizes the need for cheap energy (natural gas) in their county and has endorsed the building of the Constitution Pipeline.

Kudos to the Otsego County Legislature for passing a resolution endorsing the Constitution Pipeline at their November meeting. It was fitting that it followed a presentation by the CEO of the County’s industrial development agency. His 15 point program for projected growth depends on cheap energy. Cheap energy=gas. In our region, gas = the Constitution Pipeline.

FERC Slaps Down the Little Napoleon, Eric Schneiderman

NED Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

NRDC lap dog Eric Schneiderman was given a dog’s breakfast by FERC last week when the agency dismissed his ridiculous request for a tree-cutting hearing.

No, I’m not talking about that Napoleon, the Emperor produced by the French Revolution, but the famous pig from George Orwell’s Animal Farm. The character was seemingly created with Eric Schneiderman in mind, given his tactics. The Cliffs Notes description of the pig focuses on “his blatant lust for power…a ‘fierce-looking’ boar ‘with a reputation for getting his own way'” which involved “a combination of propaganda and terror that none of the animals can resist.” That is Eric Schneiderman, of course, and, in the 1999 film version, the pig self-destructs. Schneiderman, too, is self-destructing, with a little help from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Zephyr Fast Train Derailed by Country Folks

NED Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Zephyr Teachout was the radical fast train, spewing fractivist smoke at every bend, but she learned there are still a lot of country boys and girls around.

If you’re into railroads, the word “Zephyr” immediately brings to mind the famous Amtrak passenger train of the same name. It runs through Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah and Nevada to reach California. If you’re into politics, you’re thoughts run to Zephyr Teachout, the radical fast train that was going to run right over Governor Corruptocrat. When that didn’t happen, she was the designated belle of the Hudson Valley destined to replace retiring Congressman Chris Gibson by beating John Faso. Except that didn’t happen either. The rest of us can thank the fact there are still a whole lot of country boys and girls around.

Stop Sending Fracked Gas to NY, Says PA Senator Gene Yaw

Pennsylvania State Senator Gene Yaw is contemplating filing a bill to stop any fracked gas from PA from being transported to NY. 

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have started a peeing match he’ll end up losing, by denying permission to build the Constitution Pipeline. At a midstream (i.e. pipeline) conference held yesterday in Pennsylvania, one of the speakers, Pennsylvania Sen. Gene Yaw from Lycoming County, said half-jokingly (and half seriously) that he’s contemplating introducing a bill that would prohibit PA’s fracked gas from flowing through pipelines into New York State. Such a thing, if it ever happened, would crush New York economically. It would (deservedly) bring the Empire State to its collective knees.

New York State’s Natural Gas Hypocrisy

….
….

There is no natural gas hypocrisy like New York natural gas hypocrisy as recent Energy Information Administration data vividly demonstrates.

A few days ago I highlighted Energy Information Administration (EIA) data showing just how extensive the shale revolution has been. This was followed yesterday with data demonstrating the future energy shortage facing New York State. One missing part of the story I didn’t address, though, was the degree to which New York is growing its natural gas use even as it says no to natural gas by denying pipeline approvals and killing fracking. Call it New York State’s growing natural gas hypocrisy.

Constitution Pipeline Update: FERC Tells Court to Cut Crap

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Governor Corruptocrat’s bow to the NRDC gang in refusing a Constitution Pipeline permit is being challenged in Federal Court. FERC has weighed in on it.

Readers are aware of the sordid New York DEC record on the Constitution Pipeline. A relatively routine water quality certification was denied at the direction of Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo. He and his DEC Commissioner, NRDC gang member Basil Segos, did so at behest of the gang member Catskill Mountainkeeper and friends. The Mountainkeeper, of course, is the son of the Rockefeller lackey and NRDC founder John Adams. The Constitution Pipeline company has challenged the DEC’s servile action in Federal Court. Now, FERC has weighed in on the matter and essentially told the court to end the BS.

NGSA Goes to Court to Fight for the Constitution

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

NGSA filed a brief in federal court and also with the New York DEC to move forward with two critical pipeline projects, including the Constitution.

The Natural Gas Supply Association (NGSA) has gone into action to support two currently-stalled pipeline projects in the People’s Republic of New York, where Chairman Cuomo rules. Yesterday the NGSA filed a brief in federal court to respond to an effort by the rogues gallery of environmental extremist groups (including Catskill Mountainkeeper, Riverkeeper, Sierra Clubbers and other ne’er–do–wells) to stop the Constitution Pipeline from getting built.

Poetic Justice for the Constitution Pipeline?

Constitution Pipeline - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The Constitution Pipeline is getting some poetic justice, as Andrew Cuomo is forced to address an energy situation that requires more than his bandaids.

Poetic justice may be the sweetest of all, even if sometimes fleeting. The Constitution Pipeline is getting some right now. Electricity providers in both New York and New England have been telling Andrew Cuomo and others governors they need more access to natural gas. That means the Constitution Pipeline. Cuomo, in a craven act of subservience to the NRDC gang, refused to allow his Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to issue a routine permit for this necessary infrastructure. Now, a heat wave has forced him to call for conservation. How sweet it is! Well, not really.

Bloomberg Predicts a Win for the Constitution Pipeline

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

According to a Bloomberg analyst, the Constitution Pipeline is “favored to prevail” in a legal challenge to New York State’s opposition to the project.

We have been making the point, loudly, for the past year, that IF New York State blocks the Constitution Pipeline, as they have now done, the state runs the very real risk of having the federal government strip away their right to make such decisions about any federally-approved pipeline project. We’ve previously warned that New York is in grave danger of losing their power by attempting to block the Constitution.
