What Our Pipeline Opposition Has Wrought, Fellow New Yorkers

….
….  

Vic Furman points out what New York’s and, more specifically, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s pipeline opposition, has wrought in the way of unaffordable electricity.

Why with all with all the natural gas under our feet are New Yorkers facing an explosion in electricity costs? WBNG reports the following:

In one NYSEG bill shown to 12 News, on-peak and off-peak supply charges doubled and tripled, respectively, when compared to December.

Those of us who been involved for a decade now in advocating for natural gas development  in Upstate New York know the answer. It’s politically correct anti-gas activism and pipeline opposition adopted by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Understanding Fractivism and the Unrelenting Arrogance of Useful Idiots

Tom Shepstone

The recent sanctioning of CELDF attorneys by a very frustrated Federal judge has helped expose the blind arrogance of those associated with fractivism.

Two weeks ago I reported here on a rather amazing order from Federal Judge Susan Paradise Baxter, an Obama appointee, sanctioning Tom Linzey and another CELDF attorney for their irresponsible lawyering on the Grant Township matter. Tom Linzey has wisely avoided much comment but his associates and some incredibly arrogant and reckless clients have done so. They have done so in the name of fractivism, but that’s not what motivates Linzey. No, Tommie the Commie employs fractivism to further a much bigger agenda and these “useful idiots” have been all too willing to play along in the interest of securing attention and maybe even martydom.

Justice at Last: CELDF Busted, Tom Linzey Whacked with Sanctions

Tom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

 

Detestable Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) Attorney Tom Linzey and partner have been court-ordered to pay $52,000 in legal sanctions.

Tom Linzey, the arrogant spoiled attorney who founded and runs the CELDF, has been getting away with conning communities and funders for many years now. Like the snake-oil salesman he is, he’s sold his bogus “Community Bill of Rights Ordinance” (CBR) concept to communities from Maine to New Mexico, losing every step of the way, but never paying a penalty for bad faith lawyering.

Tom Linzey is a Marxist, or worse, by any definition but has developed a nice gig offering free legal services to communities looking for any way possible to stop this or that. They provide the platform and useful idiots such as Leonard DiCaprio, Adelaide Park Gomer, Henry Wallace’s descendants fork over the money that has allowed Linzey to pursue his radical agenda. The gig may be up in one case, though. Federal Judge Susan Paradise Baxter has had it with the CELDF and the bully Tom Linzey. She’s just sanctioned him and fellow CELDF attorney Elizabeth Duane with $52,000 in legal sanctions for their “clearly unreasonable” lawyering.

Anniversary of Governor Cuomo’s Upstate New York Choke Hold

Richard Downey

Yet another year passes and Governor Cuomo is still keeping Upstate New York out in the cold, while giving handouts to his corporate cronies.

Three years ago, Governor Cuomo told Upstate New York to drop dead.  Upstate wasn’t in good shape anyway, infected with three strains of high taxes (sales, property, and income) and a regulatory clot that kept industry away.  However, there was hope, the development of low-cost natural gas that might balance the negatives.

On December 19, 2014, the Governor pulled the plug on that hope.  He banned gas drilling in New York.  Since then he’s systematically impeded gas pipeline construction, thus choking off the rest of the Northeast from the cheap energy available just south of our border.  He does this to service the financiers of the renewable elites and to satisfy his fractivist base.  These folks are his bridge to future ambitions.

Fracking 101: An Explanation for Those of You Who Are Fractivists

ConservanciesGeorge P. Ahearn, Phd

GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc.

 

A simple lesson in fracking for those of you who are fractivists and simply don’t understand the process, the safety of the material used or plain reality.

The Process

Hydraulic fracturing (a/k/a fracking) is a process for creating a large number of open pathways in the reservoir rock or shale, which allows the oil and gas stored in the pore structure to easily flow towards a wellbore. In effect, it extends the wellbore from about 7 inches to 20 feet! In shale rock, where the flow paths between these pores is very small (oil and gas will only flow 5-10 inches a year, naturally) the effect is astounding.

Lesson from the BP Spill — Where Did All the Oil Go?

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

 

We all remember the BP spill in 2010, but do we know where all the oil went? Thanks to science, a dispersant broke most of it up and it was bio-degraded.

This story is reprinted from Dr. Ahearn’s e-book “America’s Reluctant Transformation” published by Amazon in March, 2012.

The Ocean Horizon blow-out of 2010 was under control after 100+ days once the well was capped and oil was no longer spewing into the Gulf of Mexico. At that point all sorts of scientists, environmentalists, and government agencies were out there in planes and ships looking for the oil but couldn’t seem to find it, except for some disconnected patches. Some 40-60,000 barrels per day were released for almost 100 days, where did it all go?

Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Funds CELDF Extremism

natural gas now - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund or CELDF is one of the most extremist groups out there. It abuses the law and Leonardo DiCaprio funds it.

I have wondered, for the longest time where radical Tom Linzey, who, so far as I know,  has never once been gainfully employed doing anything productive, gets the money to pursue his totalitarian fantasies.

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund or CELDF has been the subject of numerous posts here. I view his extremist program, one of abusing the law and bankrupting communities to get his way, as profoundly dangerous. Why? Because his environmentalism is anything but. He is, rather a radical who wants to disrupt every aspect of our rule of law and upend our Constitution, putting the likes himself in charge as representatives of the rocks, rivers and trees.

But, who enables this Marxist extremist? Who makes it possible for his organization to continue in this grand deception as he grows fat and happy?
