Victor Furman writes a letter to President Trump asking for help for New York against a corrupt Governor Cuomo to make New York great again.

Dear President Trump,

Upstate New York counties supported you, as you well know, in your bid and win for office of POTUS. Congratulations on your decisive victory with 304 electoral votes.

A public hearing will be held to discuss the conditional use application for the PA Shell Cracker plant, an important new energy infrastructure project.

Energy Citizens and Energy Nation have organized a public hearing to show support for the conditional use application for the new PA Shell Cracker plant.  The PA Shell Cracker plant will use low-cost ethane from the Marcellus and Utica shale to produce polyethylene. Polyethylene is a common plastic primarily used in packaging.

America Needs to Use More Energy, Not Less

To bring manufacturing back to the U.S. we need to be encouraging low-cost energy and making more of it available by using more energy, not less.

During the 2016 election, both candidates promised to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. Donald Trump made the recovery of jobs lost to China and Mexico a cornerstone of his campaign. Hillary Clinton’s website states: “While too many politicians and experts in Washington gave up on American manufacturing, Hillary never did.”

“The rhetoric,” reports US News, “has struck home with Americans across the country—particularly those currently or formerly employed in the embattled U.S. goods-producing and manufacturing sectors, who have repeatedly borne the brunt of corporate efforts to move work overseas.”

Pennsylvania’s New Destructive Energy Policies

Senior Fellow, Commonwealth Foundation for Public Policy Alternatives

 …

 

The new energy policies of Pennsylvania include forced renewables that will take billions of dollars to support and destroy the economy and jobs as a by-product.

Government policies that direct the production and use of energy are a disaster for Pennsylvania. They have been a disaster, they are a disaster, and unless something changes, they will be a disaster.

Working Class Often Caught in the Cross-Hairs of Greens

…..
….. 

The greens and anti-development groups that create conflict and stop jobs are prospering at the expense of the working class, often leaving them unemployed.

Over the last eight years, the pseudo-environmental movement’s battle cry to lessen human activity has had a profound influence over public lands policy. Though the movement is not new, its motives have shifted over the last thirty years from pushing necessary protections of sensitive environments, to stifling land use.

The Buffalo Billion Fraud and Bribery Scheme

….
….

Andrew Cuomo’s economic revitalization plan, the Buffalo Billion, is linked to pay-to-play and corruption with its failing projects like SolarCity.

When New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo gushed over SolarCity’s new solar panel factory in Buffalo, New York, the audience, likely, didn’t grasp the recently-revealed meaning of his words: “It is such a metaphor—a symbol of everything we’re doing.”

The 1.2 million square foot building, being built by the state of New York on the site of a former steel plant, is looking more and more like another political promise of help for one of the poorest cities in the state that ends up enriching cronies without ever achieving any potential for the people.

Yes, it is a symbol of everything they’re doing.

The New York Renewables Game: Bait and Switch

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

There’s an intense coordinated renewables game going on New York to fleece ratepayers with bait and switch tactics that serve the state’s special interests.

A few weeks ago I had a tel-marketer inviting me to join ELIGO, an Energy Service Company (ESCO). These companies are supposed to open the energy market to competition by buying bulk energy on the open market and selling it at a discount to customers. Conceptually, this is a good thing. The tel-marketer said there were savings to be had on my monthly electric bill if I joined. By deducting some of those undecipherable charges on the back of the electric bill, ELIGO could save me about 10%. Like free money.

Renewable energy was mentioned in the sales spritz but I didn’t pick up on it.  I picked up on the 10% discount. Being a child of the Great Depression, even now my arthritis does not stop me from kneeling to pick up pennies off the pavement. I like a bargain. I joined ELIGO. It was a mistake.

Tony Ventello just told Congress new EPA methane regulations would hinder a natural gas industry that has already reduced emissions.

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology held a hearing in Washington D.C. on September 15 to discuss the impact of the EPA’s recent methane regulations. It was, appropriately titled as A Solution In Search of a Problem: EPA’s Methane Regulations.

Tony Ventello, Executive Director of the Progress Authority (Bradford and Susquehanna Counties, Pennsylvania) traveled to the capital to be a witness. He was joined by Erik Milito of the American Petroleum Institute, Dr. Bernard Weinstein of the Maguire Energy Institute of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and Elgie Holstein of Environmental Defense Fund.

Dakota Access is Caught Between Standing Rock and A Hard Place

…..
….. 

Only now is the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe protesting the Dakota Access pipeline. Why not during the year long process of public meetings and permit approval?

If you haven’t heard of the Dakota Access pipeline protest across the North Dakota border, now’s the time to pay attention.

The project, a 30-inch-diameter pipeline owned by Energy Transfer Partners, would move up to 570,000 barrels per day from the Bakken oil fields to Patoka, Illinois, was scheduled to be operational by the end of the year. The pipeline operator purchased voluntary easement agreements on 100% of the properties along the route in North Dakota and 99% of the properties across the entire four-state route. All permits, including approval by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in July, have also been obtained by the company; however, protests have stopped construction in its tracks.

Cuomo’s Legacy: Upstate New York’s Death Rattle

Cuomo's Legacy - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s legacy is looking to be Upstate New York’s death rattle as he strips away the few natural advantages the region enjoys.

Throughout history, from our hunter/gather fore bearers to our Twittering millennials, the most powerful market signal – and nothing else comes close – is where people choose to live . . . or leave. It’s human nature. When times get hard, people have loaded the ox-cart or the U-Haul, gone steerage or bought a one-way business-class to move to greener pastures.

Consider Upstate New York. People are packing their bags. Upstate’s bleeding population. Check the plummeting school enrollments. Count the “For Sale” signs.
