Chesapeake Bay Doing Better, Despite Fractivist Claims

….

Fracking operations in Pennsylvania are often cited as a cause of degradation to the Chesapeake Bay; however, the Bay is improving and we’re still fracking.

One of my favorite times of year is the beginning of summer in Maryland. While the weather ranges from freezing cold to scorching hot every day, watermen become more and more active on the Chesapeake Bay. Their daily hauls of blue crabs are what put Maryland on the map. After all, you never order a Delaware crab cake.

Renewables Face Reality: The Subsidies Aren’t Enough

SolarCity - Tom Shepstone ReportsTom Shepstone

Renewables are facing a hard reality; the business models, even with big subsidies, just don’t make economic sense for consumers, government or investors.

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal, often a fan of corporatist cronyism, had an interesting story about a SEC investigation into Elon Musk’s empire. That empire is built on the heady dreams of trendy trust-funders and other sycophants who Musk, the modern Wizard of Con, knows better than anyone how to court. He’s their “hero.”

Federal regulators are investigating whether solar-energy companies are masking how many customers they are losing, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is examining whether San Francisco-based Sunrun Inc. and Elon Musk’s San Mateo, Calif.-based SolarCity Corp. have adequately disclosed how many customers have canceled contracts after signing up for a home solar-energy system…

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.

Green Gangsters Rip Us Off While Enriching Themselves

….
….   

Wind energy subsidies are financing green gangster projects intended to enrich the 0.1% at the expense of ratepayers and taxpayers.

A recent Joe Mahoney article, “NY looks to the wind to replace its fossil fuel diet,” was full of half-truths and misinformation.

There is nothing “free,” “clean” or “green” about industrial wind.  Quite the contrary: the true costs of industrial wind development are astronomical. Yet, the wishful thinking of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman“green” ideologues, and “renewable” energy hustlers and subsidy seekers who benefit from this massive taxpayer and ratepayer rip-off has been repeated by countless “journalists” without question for years now.

FERC Smacks Vile Eric Schneiderman Across Face

There is no more vile official in state government than Eric Scheiderman, the vindictive Attorney General of New York, just smacked across the face by FERC.

FERC just issued its opinion on Eric Schneiderman’s allegation that Williams orchestrated tree clearing of the Constitution Pipeline right-of-way. FERC asked, in so many words, just how stupid Schneiderman thought they might be. The agency delivered a smack across the face of the nasty wide-eyed Attorney General playing politics on behalf of the NRDC gang. How sweet it was.

Schneiderman Last Accuser Standing in Exxon Witch Trials

Climate Witch Trials - Jim Willis reports

Jim Willis
Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is the last accuser standing in the RICO-like ExxonMobil witch trials. The NRDC gang must be holding him hostage.

Marcellus Drilling News has previously chronicled an insidious effort spearheaded by the odious New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to criminalize free speech. He and his friends accuse ExxonMobil of “knowing” man-made global warming is “true” but suppressing that knowledge. Disagree with Scheiderman on global warming and he wants to take your money away. He wants to put you in jail. As we’ve pointed out, it’s fascist.

Pipeline Politics in an Era of Political Corruption

Tom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW

 

The Constitution Pipeline rejection by corrupt Andrew Cuomo must be the beginning of a new approach by pipeline companies unaccustomed to pipeline politics.

My frustrations with Andrew Cuomo’s decision on the Constitution Pipeline are as deep as anyone’s, but pardon me if I don’t act surprised. Upstate New Yorkers learned the hard way the man was deeply corrupt and not to be trusted. They already knew the sting of betrayal from his fracking ban and the way it was done. They were smart enough to realize the fix was in years earlier when Cuomo put three senior NRDC attorneys on his fracking advisory committee, not to mention Joe Martens and all those other NRDC allies. Unfortunately, con men adept as Cuomo are always able to deceive again and again, which is what happened with the Constitution Pipeline.

Constitution Pipeline Rejection Is A Political Lesson

The Constitution Pipeline has been rejected by Andrew Cuomo, who, once again, threw upstate to the wolves offering a political lesson to pipeline companies.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has once again thrown Upstate New York under the bus or to the wolves (pick your analogy) in favor of the NRDC gang and its friends. Once again Cuomo has illustrated just how little he cares about Upstate New York and how much he’s under the thumb of the NRDC gang – rich elitists from Manhattan whose homes are heated, directly or indirectly, by natural gas but who are determined to make a wilderness out of Upstate New York. Rural economies didn’t matter, jobs didn’t matter, local manufacturers didn’t matter, energy security didn’t matter, wintertime energy needs didn’t matter, prices didn’t matter and the environment didn’t matter. All that mattered was the political agenda of the New York’s biggest snobs. He has against all evidence, precedence and the advice of his own DEC rejected the Constitution Pipeline.

Enough Time Already on Constitution Pipeline, Seggos!

Tom Shepstone

Basil Seggos, the new DEC (or should we say NRDC) Commissioner says he doesn’t want to rush his staff’s review of the Constitution Pipeline application.

Basil Seggos, had something to say on the Constitution Pipeline the other day, according to RTO Insider (emphasis added):

At a joint legislative budget hearing at the New York State Capitol in Albany on Thursday, Department of Environmental Conservation Acting Commissioner Basil Seggos noted Constitution is a significant project with a large number of stream crossings. “I’m not going to pressure my department to move more quickly than they believe is warranted,” he said.

This is after 29 months of review of an application that FERC provides the state one-year (that’s 12 months for those of you serving in Albany) to review. And, this guy has the gall to suggest even more time is necessary. This is the sort of wholly disingenuous remark that explains why government is held in such contempt in so many places today. It’s a damned lie. Seggos knows it’s not his staff that needs or wants more time (they’ve already all but acknowledged the delay is inexcusable) but him and his governor, who are sitting on this application in a despicable display of pandering to the NRDC gang and friends.

FERC Destroys Opposition to Constitution Pipeline

A fractivist list of complaints and request for a FERC rehearing on the Constitution Pipeline has been totally rejected with stunning clarity.

Several fractivist organizations funded by the usual suspects threw a shovelful of cow manure agains the wall in FERC’s direction, hoping some of it would stick, but nothing did. FERC rejected the fractivist appeal for a rehearing on the Constitution Pipeline in comprehensive fashion last week.
