Dana Knowles sends New York’s Governor Andy Cuomo a letter asking for his state back and offering him the option of keeping his Emperor State all to himself.

Dear Andy,

I finally figured out what has gone wrong with you and our “Empire State.” You thought that you were running for “The Emperor State.” We in upstate did not vote for you no matter what you thought. Please give us our Empire State back. You can have your Emperor State of NYC where they used to love you.

Wolf Overreaches with Severance Tax

Overreaching seems to be the order of the day from government these days as the EPA and Governor Tom Wolf both shoot for the stars and hit themselves in the feet, particularly in the case of Wolf’s severance tax.

After months of discussion, the Environmental Protection Agency issued its new rule on what constitutes “water” under the Clean Water Act.  The rule attempts to clarify whether small streams and tributaries that appear and disappear throughout the year due to rain, snowmelt, etc. come under the auspices of the Act.  According to the Obama Administration, approximately 60% of America’s streams are seasonal or temporary and one third of Americans get their drinking water from public utilities accessing these waterways.

Southern Tier Sacrificed at Altar of Political Correctness

The New York SGEIS release, combined with the latest economic news from the Southern Tier, shows a region sacrificed at the altar of political correctness.

After seven years, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation released its final, 2,000 page Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) concerning hydraulic fracturing. To no one’s surprise, the environmental review incorporates and confirms the New York State Department of Health report that “significant uncertainty” exists over whether safety measures could adequately protect public health, including impacts to air, water, soil and community character.

The “No Conflict of Interest” Fractivist Scam

Fractivists have long exploited faux “peer reviews” to justify junk science and now they’ve been caught with their pants down on “no conflict of interest.”

Our friends at Energy In Depth (EID) have scored with a huge expose of what is common practice among fractivists: their outright deceit regarding who’s behind their junk science. They have long manipulated the “peer review” process to cast undeserved credibility on themselves and have repeatedly and falsely declared “no conflict of interest” when they are more conflicted than a cat guarding a bird cage.

Stall New York: King Cuomo’s Castle Starts Crumbling

environmental justiceTom Shepstone
Shepstone Management Company, Inc.

 

King Cuomo’s castle is starting to crumble as others eager to succeed him see weakness and point out “Start-Up New York” is more like “Stall New York.”

Fred Dicker, the fearless reporter at the New York Post, was the first to announce it with this story, and New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli followed through the next day with the evidence of what everyone in the know has observed; Start-Up New York was nothing but an opportunity for the state’s governor to run taxpayer-funded political ads promoting a completely ineffective economic program. Start-Up New York has been an abysmal failure and a damned poor substitute for gas drilling. It was also a stall tactic employed to hide the fact Cuomo didn’t have much to offer upstate voters to fix their stalled economy because he couldn’t afford to offend a ruling class that has a bull ring in his nose.

The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York (JLCNY) is seeking support for property rights legislation crafted by Congressman Tom Reed. 

Our rally to show our support for landowner rights and NG development in New York on Saturday, April 18 was a huge success! More than 250 landowners and Union Tradesmen showed up in Painted Post NY to voice their support of our fundamental rights. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer videographer we now have videos posted on our website so everyone can see and hear just how great it was!

Fracking Fictions Threaten Upstate New York

Southern TierCarol Kauffman
Houghton, NY Landowner

 

Fracking fictions threaten to deprive Upstate New Yorkers of vital economic revitalization and the ability to retain the ownership of their homesteads.

My family settled the Allegany County, NY area, in the early 1800’s. Our 140 acres is a part of the original Holland Company Land Grant, and was purchased from them by my great grandmother, and owned by the women in our family, ever since.

I will lose our property to taxes should we delay the permitting process any longer and I’m tired of the fracking fictions and half-truths that abound regarding natural gas development. Here are the fracking facts I have learned over the last 4 years::

To Our Superior Leader in Albany, Andy Cuomo

Cuomo TeamInge Grafe-Kieklak
Sullivan County, New York, Landowner

 

Governor Cuomo, I know you say you want to be open and transparent in your dealings with the public; but I do have my doubts on this one.

Just the other day, I found an article about START-UP NY. This program created under you, Gov. Cuomo, was a complete fiasco. If you were a business, you would have spent $53 million to create 76 jobs, this is $697,368.42 per job. Don’t you think this is a bit excessive? How long does it take to realize a benefit?

It is amazing to me, that you did not do the math for your endeavor? When you see the above numbers, does this not shock you? Even if you would create 2100 new jobs in five years as you claim, it is still not good enough!

Constitution Pipeline Will Help Keep Us Comfortable

Constitution Pipeline - Dick DowneyRichard Downey
Unatego Area Landowners Association

    

While the DEC wades through piles of public comment on the Constitution Pipeline, it might be useful to look at the real reason for anti opposition. It isn’t the health and well-being of our world.

The Constitution Pipeline is a 124 mile transmission line from northeast Pennsylvania to a Schoharie County transfer station. When operational, the pipeline will pipe low-cost Pennsylvania gas to heat homes, cook food, and generate electricity for the people of New England and New York.

The Constitution will be part of an existing 2.5 million mile network of natural gas pipelines serving our energy needs. The Energy Information Agency (EIA) indicates that gas generates 28% of our electricity, increasingly replacing aging coal and nuclear power plants.

Must Southern Tier Secede to Succeed?

Pennsylvania Natural Gas - NY HealthRachael Bunzey

New York residents are at the absolute breaking point.  The Southern Tier cannot sustain itself without natural gas. Does it have to secede to succeed? Take the poll!

Governor Cuomo always talks about how New York is business friendly and welcomes industry with open arms. The commercials, in fact, say New York is booming and welcoming to new businesses; the state is really turning around.  If that’s true and this is improvement, we are all in very serious trouble.  We can barely feed our families or put gas in our cars.  Residents of the Southern Tier desperately need natural gas and a governor who will listen to them. We don’t have one now. Rather, we have a lecturer who tells us how much he’s done for us, while insulting as at every turn.
