Zephyr Fast Train Derailed by Country Folks

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

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.

Constitution Pipeline Grabs Important Legal Support

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

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

 

The Natural Gas Supply Association, and other organizations, supported the Constitution Pipeline by filing an appeal against NY DEC.

It was perhaps the sleaziest of his sleazy political moves. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made a non-science-based political decision to deny the Constitution Pipeline stream crossing permits in April. The man is a menace to all New Yorkers. He caves to his radical, fringe left on a regular basis. He did it again with his decision to deny the Constitution Pipeline.

Williams, Cabot and the other partners in the project are not taking it laying down.  Consequently, they sued New York in federal court. There is a very real possibility that the court will neuter NY’s decision-making role in the project. The Constitution doesn’t stand alone. A number of national industry organizations are already coming to the Constitution’s defense.

FERC Smacks Vile Eric Schneiderman Across Face

There is no more vile official in state government than Eric Scheiderman, the vindictive Attorney General of New York, just smacked across the face by FERC.

FERC just issued its opinion on Eric Schneiderman’s allegation that Williams orchestrated tree clearing of the Constitution Pipeline right-of-way. FERC asked, in so many words, just how stupid Schneiderman thought they might be. The agency delivered a smack across the face of the nasty wide-eyed Attorney General playing politics on behalf of the NRDC gang. How sweet it was.

Natural Gas Double-Talk from Cuomo: More Duplicity

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

…. 

Cuomo’s natural gas double-talk continues; calling for more clean natural gas at the same time he’s banning drilling and rejecting pipelines!

If this doesn’t take the cake: The very corrupt New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sold out his own residents and their property rights to radical leftists by placing an ongoing moratorium on high volume (not low volume) hydraulic fracturing, and then by denying the Constitution Pipeline necessary permits to begin construction. Cuomo has, in short, done everything he can to stop natural gas production in the Empire State. Now he turns around, and as part of his official energy policy says (via his underlings at the Public Service Commission) gas is clean-burning and important part of the state’s energy future. Talk about chutzpah!
