Andrew Cuomo has, in seven years, done more to harm Upstate New York than anyone. He is, in fact, the greatest disaster to ever befall Upstate New York.

It is quite sad, what’s going on here in New York. I’m talking about what our corrupt Governor Andrew Cuomo’s target of 50 percent “clean energy” by 2030. Have you ever noticed politicians always set target dates that can’t be reached until long after they will be out of office? It’s campaign talk followed by supposedly bold actions that signal good intentions. However, nothing good is coming from Cuomo’s actions.

A friend of mine I met in the New York Gas Wars saw his farm go up on the auction block, recentlym losing the family farm. His only misfortune other then living in the most unfree state in the country was his farm wasn’t located in trendy wine country (where they also have gas wells). My friend simply produced meat for the hungry, milk for the thirsty and vegetables for your health. I won’t mention his family name because losing your family’s property is very personal and devastating.

Why? We all ask ourselves this. Who is next?

Fracking the Delaware River Basin: It’s About Time!

John J. IntervalJohn J. Interval
Professional Petroleum Geologist.

 

John J. Interval explains how fracking the Delaware River Basin would provide long term economic benefits, growth and jobs.

There is no overstating the importance of allowing fracking for natural gas in the Delaware River Basin. It could produce as much as $435 million worth of natural gas annually, bringing huge economic benefits and creating manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, according to a study done by Gerald Kauffman, director of the University of Delaware’s Delaware Water Resources Center.

The Dividing Line Between Upstate NY Distress and PA Success

Upstate NY has 53 “distressed communities.” Comparing the worst to two Pennsylvania shale communities shows us Gov. Corruptocrat’s fracking ban didn’t help.

The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association “dividing line” video tells a powerful story but the most compelling part of that story is told in Census data. The American Community Survey is the tool the Census Bureau uses to estimate population, incomes and the like on an annual basis. It has proven quite accurate and I went to it yesterday to check out the facts on a rural community in Chenango County, New York know as the Town of Plymouth. It’s not far from Norwich and part of the Southern Tier of New York that has been denied fracking by Gov. Corruptocrat at the behest of gentry class families hoping to empty out as much of Upstate as possible. Plymouth explains a lot.

The Dividing Line Between Hope and Darkness for the Southern Tier

New York’s Southern Tier is dying, slowly and painfully, abandoned by its state leaders as it is forced to witness what could be from across a dividing line.

It apparently takes Pennsylvanians to speak up for New York State’s Southern Tier. The Empire State’s leaders are more interested in appeasing a politically correct gentry class domiciled in the ivory towers of Manhattan. Well, that’s not entirely fair. There are numerous New Yorkers willing to speak up and they have done so very articulately and with a passion born of truth. The Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association (PMA) had to provide the forum and they’ve done so with a remarkable good video that is a must-see.

NY Propane Fracking Application Gets Response

…. 

NY DEC needs more information on a permit application for propane fracking; calling the application incomplete on what they say is a “unique technology.”

It only took nine months, but the New York Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC), which moves like a glacier, has finally responded to a request by a group of farmers in Tioga County, NY to use propane fracking technology (also known as LPG fracturing or “liquefied petroleum gas”) on a shale well. Last July a group of landowners flying under the name of The Snyder Farm Group (five families make up the group) contracted with Tioga Energy Partners (based in Texas) to drill a fracked Utica Shale well, and follow it up with drilling a fracked Marcellus Shale well, using liquefied petroleum gas (LPG or propane) and sand (see NY Landowners File to Frack Horizontal Well w/Waterless Tech and NY Heroes: More Details on NY Propane Fracking Proposal).

Constitution Pipeline - Dick DowneyRichard Downey

The cynical politics of Andrew Cuomo involve assuming power for the purpose of evading responsibility and patronizing big green radicals.

Progress on the $700 million Constitution Pipeline teeters on the mating habits of the Northern long-eared bat and the political machinations of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Four-Hundred Strong Rally for Constitution Pipeline

Upstate New Yorkers turned out en masse Saturday to tell Governor Cuomo it’s time to cut out the crap and approve the Constitution Pipeline, NOW!

The support for the Constitution Pipeline and Williams I saw in my hometown of Afton, New York on Saturday was beyond belief. There was a rally and some 400 people packed the Afton River Club to sign letters and to speak in support of the project on behalf of themselves, their friends, their families and their neighbors. Williams should feel very confident is has ample support, not only from landowners, but also from several local elected officials and numerous labor union members. The officials, union members and other individuals who came out to speak up in favor of the Constitution Pipeline was so encouraging and sent a very loud message to Governor Cuomo, who’s playing a stupid bureaucratic game with this vital project.

We Have the Numbers, So Approve the Constitution Pipeline!

Though politics shouldn’t be the criteria, support for the Constitution Pipeline has now been amply demonstrated and it’s time Cuomo approved this project!

“Where are your numbers?”

This was a question Andrew Cuomo asked a Joint Landowners  Coalition (JLCNY) representative in 2011.  Cuomo knew then the antis’ claims were bogus, that upstate development depended on cheap energy, and NYC was switching to gas to meet EPA air quality standards.

The Plight of the Southern Tier: A Leadership Fail

Dr. Michael Morrongiello
Psychologist and Steuben County Landowner

…. 
….

The plight of the Southern Tier – a failing economy with no end in sight – is directly attributable to a governing philosophy of handouts before leadership.

An Elmira Star-Gazette editorial on August 15th accurately described the plight of upstate New York: lagging economic growth, little job creation, people leaving the state in droves. The Editorial Board cited State Comptroller DiNapoli’s report which said “job growth was uneven across the state.” The Southern Tier actually lost jobs. There’s nothing uneven about it; the area is flatlining. After a great start the editorial fizzled out, failing to name the cause of upstate’s decline nor any real solutions – state leadership that has put the Southern Tier and much of Upstate New York at the mercy of downstate special interests.
