Andrew Cuomo’s SolarCity Boondoggle Just Keeps Going Bad

… 

SolarCity, the star feature of Andrew Cuomo’s “Buffalo Billion” program to revitalize Upstate New York by picking a winner and subsidizing it is fading fast.

Andrew Cuomo has poured a ton of taxpayer money into SolarCity and has even given Elon Musk a “Get Out of Jail Free” card to avoid payback obligations in the event it fails to deliver promised jobs. Part of the governor’s “Buffalo Billion” initiative, which has descended into the morass of corruption surrounding Cuomo, the SolarCity project has turned out to be one of Elon Musk’s biggest scams and it’s only going bad at an ever faster rate. Andy can’t subsidize solar farms and installations fast enough to save it, as Elon puts his mind to work figuring out what excuse he’ll make for stiffing the Emperor of the Empire State.

The Southwest Florida Conservancy’s Fracking Politics and Scare Tactics

FrackingGeorge P. Ahearn, Phd
Co-founder and Former President and CEO
GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc.

The Southwest Florida Conservancy is wrongly engaged in fracking politics and George Ahearn takes them to task for a scare tactic Naples Daily News op-ed.

The President and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Rob Moher, wrote to the Naples Daily News on February 12 to again strike fear into our citizens about the urgency of a fracking ban bill. He accompanied his op-ed with a litany of imagined risks of the process and damages to our ecosystem and fresh water supply that has never occurred over its years of use.

Moher stands by as we dump oceans of nutrient laden fresh water into the Gulf each year, irrigate thousands of golf courses in this state every day. Yet, he expects us to believe a few well stimulation jobs will damage our ecosystem and kill tourism. The only thing that will affect our tourism is a hurricane, and Irma did that last year.

What Two-Faced Trust-Funder Tom Wolf (and Others) Said Then

Betty Sutliff quotes Gov. Tom Wolf on natural gas development from when he wasn’t acting as a DRBC member and was actually representing Pennsylvanians.

Politicians such as Governor Tom Wolf have a habit of saying the darnedest things, especially where it comes to natural gas development but it seems to matter a lot who they’re addressing.

In this post I am choosing to let the politicians speak for themselves and readers can compare their statements then with what they’re saying now about natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin.

The Deceptive Arguments and Tactics of Severance Tax Advocates

natural gas now - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

Pennsylvania’s severance tax debate has produced some of the most appallingly deceptive arguments and tactics imaginable as advocates lobby for the tax.

Pennsylvania’s severance tax debate is on again. Gov. Tom Wolf, the Commonwealth’s top trust-funder, is making yet another demagogic bid for a severance tax to whip up the greed of “something for nothing” public employee unions. What the debate illustrates, more than anything else, is just how deceptive severance tax arguments made by advocates for the tax really are.

Sorry Fractivists: Fracking Made Susquehanna County Even Better!

Decline Curves - Chris AckerChris Acker
Geological Engineer,
Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania 

CHRIS ACKER

CHRIS ACKER

Natural gas drilling has been going strong in Susquehanna County for ten years now and the reality is we still have our rural way of life, with improvements!

Rural Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, is my home and I treasure it deeply.  With a population of only 42,000, the county sits atop one of the world’s most prolific natural gas formations – the Marcellus Shale.

Cabot Oil & Gas has invested billions of dollars here to develop this extraordinary resource.  Astoundingly, production from my county alone could supply the entire needs of France.  Cabot has been here over a decade and I am intimately familiar with the effects of the industry.

New England Gets Power Plant: Will It Get Gas?

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

 

A proposed New England natural gas power plant will bring numerous economic benefits as it produces affordable, clean energy for homes and businesses.

In April 2016, MDN told you NTE Energy, headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida, plans to build several new natural gas-fired electric generating plants, one of them in Connecticut. Since that time NTE has been busy with all of three projects.

The Connecticut project is called Killingly Energy Center, a 550-megawatt plant that will be located near Killingly, CT. NTE has secured a site for the plant, filed a request to connect to the power grid, filed for an air permit and filed with the siting council.
