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.

It 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.

A New Day: FERC Takes on Cuomo and His Corrupt DEC

FERC has given Governor Andrew “Corruptocrat” and his equally corrupt DEC a message; their days of riding roughshod over Federal law on pipelines are over.

Jim Willis, who somehow manages to pick up on everything over at Marcellus Drilling News (MDN) posted a story yesterday revealing something extraordinarily important for the pipeline and natural gas industry. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) directly took on the political corruption that is New York State government. It also sent a signal to other states who have followed suit in abusing the Section 401 Water Quality Certification process for pipelines under the Clean Water Act. FERC is taking a strong stand to defend the integrity of Section 401.

Constitution Pipeline Petition: How They Were Conned by Cuomo

Constitution Pipeline has petitioned FERC to declare NY-DEC waived rights to act on its water quality certification application. It’s one compelling story.

Earlier this month, the Constitution Pipeline folks filed a petition with FERC to essentially overrule the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) denial of its application for water quality certification. It’s old news but I only recently got around to reading the petition itself, which is one hugely compelling story of just how New York State government works under Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo and how our pipeline friends got totally conned. The best part, though, is how they’re refusing to roll over and are, with this petition, telling the world the sordid details of how they were victimized by the criminal enterprise known as the Cuomo administration.

Millennium Goes to War with DEC, Asks FERC to Overrule

delaware riverkeeper - Jim Willis reports

… 

In an effort to avoid more New York DEC stall tactics, Millennium asks FERC to issue the Notice to Proceed so the pipeline can be completed on time.

On Aug. 30, the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) issued a letter to FERC and Millennium Pipeline denying Millennium’s request for a water permit to build a 7.8 mile pipeline spur from the main Millennium Pipeline to a natural gas power plant under construction in Orange County. In their rejection, the DEC claimed that FERC’s review of the power plant project (that the pipeline will feed) is deficient based on a recently-decided court case about a pipeline project in Florida. Since the project the pipeline would feed is deficient (in DEC’s view), so too is the pipeline that feeds it.

Fracking the Delaware River Basin: It’s About Time!

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval

John J. Interval explains how fracking the Delaware River Basin would provide long term economic benefits, growth and jobs.

There is no overstating the importance of allowing fracking for natural gas in the Delaware River Basin. It could produce as much as $435 million worth of natural gas annually, bringing huge economic benefits and creating manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, according to a study done by Gerald Kauffman, director of the University of Delaware’s Delaware Water Resources Center.

The Dividing Line Between Upstate NY Distress and PA Success

Upstate NY has 53 “distressed communities.” Comparing the worst to two Pennsylvania shale communities shows us Gov. Corruptocrat’s fracking ban didn’t help.

The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association “dividing line” video tells a powerful story but the most compelling part of that story is told in Census data. The American Community Survey is the tool the Census Bureau uses to estimate population, incomes and the like on an annual basis. It has proven quite accurate and I went to it yesterday to check out the facts on a rural community in Chenango County, New York know as the Town of Plymouth. It’s not far from Norwich and part of the Southern Tier of New York that has been denied fracking by Gov. Corruptocrat at the behest of gentry class families hoping to empty out as much of Upstate as possible. Plymouth explains a lot.

The Dividing Line Between Hope and Darkness for the Southern Tier

New York’s Southern Tier is dying, slowly and painfully, abandoned by its state leaders as it is forced to witness what could be from across a dividing line.

It apparently takes Pennsylvanians to speak up for New York State’s Southern Tier. The Empire State’s leaders are more interested in appeasing a politically correct gentry class domiciled in the ivory towers of Manhattan. Well, that’s not entirely fair. There are numerous New Yorkers willing to speak up and they have done so very articulately and with a passion born of truth. The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association (PMA) had to provide the forum and they’ve done so with a remarkable good video that is a must-see.

New York’s Clean Energy Standard Is Merely Virtue Signaling

Institute for
Energy Research

….
….  

New York State’s Clean Energy Standard Is but symbolic environmentalism accomplishing almost nothing with respect to emissions or the welfare of New Yorkers.

A recent report evaluated New York State’s clean energy programs and found them costing the state’s consumers and businesses over $1 trillion with no measurable impact on world climate. Thus, the carbon dioxide reductions that would cost the state’s residents heavily would have no value. This is nothing new; New York finds numerous ways to tax its people with little benefit to show for it.

UDRBC Formed to Fight for Upper Delaware Citizens

….
…. 

A new landowner group, UDRBC, has been formed to fight back against the DRBC and anyone else threatening the rights of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens.

With the DRBC continuing to encroach upon property owner rights in the Delaware River Watershed, the need for a coalition spanning multiple counties and multiple states has never been greater. Members of the Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) believe this; for the people who actually live and work here, life in the basin is about more than a river. It is also not just landowners looking to lease their land for natural gas exploration who are impacted by the continued efforts of the DRBC to overregulate this region.

Battle for the Pipelines – The Agency Strikes Back

New York can simply not grow without access to natural gas, nor can most areas. The FERC decision addresses this economic reality while others only posture.

With just three months to go, the movie industry is looking at one of its worst years in recent memory.  Earlier this month, Jennifer Lawrence’s new release Mother was such a flop that famed critic Rex Reed called it the “worst movie of the century.”   It appears that Hollywood is missing 2017’s best epic, which might be entitled Battle for the Pipelines – The Agency Strikes Back.  While it may not be a box office blockbuster, the real world ramifications are immense.
