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.
