Barbara Lifton, and 21 other NY lawmakers, ask Gov. Cuomo to ban on all new fossil fuel infrastructure; a move that would send NY back to the stone ages.
Barbara Lifton is a dangerously stupid person. Dangerous because she happens to be an elected member of the New York State Assembly. She is representing the ultra-liberal bastion of Ithaca, NY. In fact, Lifton has long opposed shale drilling in the state. Her hatred of shale drilling has now spilled over and metastasized into a full-blown, irrational hatred of all fossil fuels.
Lifton and 21 other energy no-nothings in the NY state legislature sent a signed letter to Gov. Andrew “man-child” Cuomo. They are asking him to halt all state approvals of pipelines, compressor stations, power plants, and gas storage facilities. In other words, stop any more development of energy that comes from fossil fuels. Even though, last year 81.5% of all energy used in this country (and NY) came from fossil fuels. That’s the stupid part.
