Struggling farmers in the Marcellus region are often a thing of the past because of fracking. Natural gas has reinvigorated communities and saved countless farms.

Farming has always been a labor of love and profits were not necessarily the outcome. In recent years, as the economy took a downturn, farmers were especially hit hard. Milk prices were at an all-time low and gas was at an all-time high. Many faced more expenses than income.

When fracking came along, struggling farmers, with their vast amounts of land, had a perfect opportunity to change things and get some much needed income. Essentially saving their farms from bankruptcy.

Blocking Pipelines Destroys Jobs and Raises Energy Prices

Institute for Energy Research

….
….  

A Chamber of Commerce study confirms the northeast states fighting against pipelines are losing good-paying jobs and paying extremely high energy prices.

In a new report, the Chamber of Commerce quantified the economic and job losses arising from limiting natural gas infrastructure development in the U.S. Northeast where several states, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, have denied construction of natural gas pipelines. According to the report, if no new pipelines are built, it would cost the region over 78,000 jobs and $7.6 billion in GDP by the year 2020, and the displacement of over $4.4 billion in labor income.

The JLCNY asks President Trump to intervene on projects already federally approved and not let Cuomo deprive Upstate New York for his own political gain.

Dear Mr. President,

Congratulations on your victory. We are confident that your presidency will restore common sense to government. I am writing with a plea for help for thousands of landowners in Upstate New York who have had their property rights deprived by our state.

I am the President of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York, Inc., a group of 70,000 landowners with more than one million acres available for oil and gas development in New York. We are a coalition of landowners and generational farmers who care deeply for the environment and the land.

Pennsylvania’s Bountiful Future Due to Fracking

… 

Fracking is going to make Pennsylvania shine again as a center of manufacturing and progress, due to the enormous potential of the Marcellus and Utica shale.

There is an amazing new study out — produced for Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, no less — that uses hard data to illustrate what a bountiful future the Commonwealth has before it due to fracking. Titled Prospects to Enhance Pennsylvania’s Opportunities in Petrochemical Manufacturing and filled with wonderful maps and charts, it is an independent report by IHS Markit. Team Pennsylvania Foundation (Team PA) commissioned the report “to identify and evaluate the opportunities for petrochemical and plastics manufacturing in Pennsylvania based on natural gas resources available in the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays.”

I didn’t think Tom Wolf had it in him, but the report is simply outstanding. It makes the case for infrastructure development like no one else has. Jim Willis was, as usual, the first to open the book and his take is available here at MDN. The report also has a nice Executive Summary but it’s probably a little lengthy for our busy readers, so I have distilled the basic facts down to bullet points for those eager to get to the good news faster and there’s plenty of it.

PA DEP Wants Reward for Doing Poorly!

… 

PA DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell had the audacity to blame poor performances by some of its regional offices on lack of money even though it get $728 million.

PA DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell was as well spoken at his Senate Budget hearing as he was when the House Appropriations Committee interviewed him. He certainly has the right professional temperament for his job, but that didn’t make his answers any better when it came to DEP permitting delays. He blamed it on a lack of money, of course, and wants to be rewarded with more of it, despite horrific delays and disparities among his regional offices in issuing routine erosion and sedimentation permits.
