Dead-End NY: Empire State Business and Manufacturing Blues

Andrew Cuomo’s Start-Up NY program might better be called Dead-End NY for all the good it’s done; a lousy 722 jobs for a taxpayer rip-off of $59 million.

“An upstate jobs ticket to hell” was how I described Start-Up NY last year, noting it was Governor Corruptocrat’s “Rube Goldberg strategy to use other people’s money” to create upstate jobs after the NRDC gang told him he couldn’t frack. They’ve since told him he can’t allow pipelines either. Back in July, after spending tens of millions on advertising, Start-Up NY had created slightly over 400 jobs, less than half what little Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania gained by simply allowing fracking and getting out of the way.

Now, after almost another year, things appear to have gone from bad to worse, so bad in fact, Empire State Development tells us next to nothing anymore, apparently hoping lack of data will, at least, dampen bad news coverage. Unfortunately for Dead-End NY, others are noticing anyway. The journal amNewYork, for example, just did an editorial calling out Corruptocrat’s budget for now including language that ends the requirement to report job creation connected with the program. Don’t like the numbers? Just make them go away. Others still, collect data, though, and the evidence for Dead-End NY is irrefutable.

Blocking Pipelines Destroys Jobs and Raises Energy Prices

….
….  

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.

Where Have All the Solar Jobs Gone?

A recent article in the New York Times extolled the growth in renewables jobs, suggesting solar jobs were booming but the data is very misleading at best.

A great friend from New York with no axe to grind on energy issues recently pointed me to an article in the New York Times suggesting solar job creation was absolutely booming. He knew I would be interested and wondered what I thought. I told him it was likely to be phony data but that I would check it out. I did. I was correct.

Cuomo Calls Pipelines Safe Yet Keeps New York in the Cold

….
….  

Governor Cuomo continues to fight pipeline construction in New York State, even after viewing them as safe, seems he cares more about his political career.

New York Governor Cuomo claims that he supports pipeline infrastructure, commenting that pipelines are viewed as the least hazardous method of moving a combustible fuel. Cuomo further stated, “Many studies say that using a pipeline as a conduit is safer than rail travel and truck travel. Realistically you have to move fuel, so a pipeline is the safest way if it’s done right.” Yet, within the last year, his Department of Environmental Conservation denied certification to the proposed Northern Access pipeline and water permits sought by the Constitution Pipeline. Cuomo has also fought the Algonquin Pipeline expansion and has been dawdling on an 8-mile spur to a new power plant in Wawayanda.

Fracking Bolsters the American Economy

…  

Robert Bradley explains the practice of hydraulic fracturing is not only safe but is actually helping to bolster the American economy.

Our friends at Institute for Energy Research shared this guest post with us, which was written by their founder and CEO, Robert Bradley, Jr. and recently published in Forbes.

Warning: low-cost, clean energy may be hazardous to your health.

Or so say environmental activists who will trot out any line of attack in their crusade against fossil fuels.

For years, the green movement has spread falsehoods about hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — the practice of unlocking hydrocarbons by injecting high-pressure liquid deep into the earth. Lately, the leave-it-in-the-ground lobby has doubled down on its mission to thwart the latest oil and gas extraction techniques.

Gov. Wolf show us you support PA jobs, affordable natural gas and the energy industry by moving the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline forward.

It’s no secret that elected officials from across America are now prioritizing natural gas infrastructure. Why? Because they recognize the tremendous economic benefits associated with a strong energy industry. As well as the need to ensure a reliable supply of clean, affordable fuel for economic development, making electricity and heating homes. It is now Gov. Tom Wolf’s turn to show he, too, cares about giving a boost to Pennsylvania’s energy industry, creating local jobs and stimulating economic development. How? By supporting the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project.

SolarCity Shaping Up As Cuomo’s Biggest Failure; A “Skinnin”

The news regarding Andrew Cuomo’s pet project, the centerpiece of his Buffalo Billion scam, SolarCity, gets worse by the day. It’s what we call a “skinnin.”

One of my former office neighbors, a mortage broker, loved to talk of something he called a “skinnin.” It was country slang for making the deal of deals; a “stealing candy from the baby” sort of deal. Whenever I arrived at the office in coat and tie, I could be sure to get a “skinnin’ today?” question out of him, combined with a sly grin. What he had in mind was what Elon Musk did with Andrew Cuomo by selling him the SolarCity deal. It’s been falling apart for many months now and things just keep getting worse for Prince Corruptocrat.
