[Mariner East is moving ahead to complete construction with another 13 miles under the belt over the last several weeks. It’s a beautiful thing for sure!]

Deemed an essential business and a vital energy asset for the commonwealth, construction on Mariner East resumed in March, putting skilled laborers back on the job to complete horizontal directional drills and other related projects critical to the safe, responsible development of the pipeline network.

Mama Bear Brigade: Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Greenies

A phony group called the Mama Bear Brigade did a very weird Mariner East pipeline protest yesterday in the middle of a pandemic in still red Delaware County.

We love Waylon Jennings here at NaturalGasNOW. He and his Highwaymen pals did a beautiful rendering of “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Cowboys.” The lyrics resonate with the authentic image of the cowboy:

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys
Don’t let ’em pick guitars or drive them old trucks
Let ’em be doctors and lawyers and such…

But, there’s a group of supposed Mamas in Delaware County and environs known as the Mama Bear Brigade who resonate as green phonies. They staged an unusual protest of the Mariner East pipeline using vehicles and Zoom, with narration by organizer Luke Bauerlein, a paid shill for the usual suspects. They did so in the middle of a pandemic; in the county with the single worst COVID death rate in Pennsylvania!

Joe Biden, You’re Not Going to Win Pennsylvania This Way

.

Joe Biden is in a political vise; squeezed by radical greens on the one side and labor on the other. He can’t win Pennsylvania without the latter, though.

Joe Biden will be the Democrat nominee for President this year, but can he win Pennsylvania in November? That’s unclear. He’s confronted by two classic Democrat constituencies, greens and blue-collars, with diametrically opposed positions on oil and gas development. And, that’s precisely where Joe Biden is right now. Muddling through would hardly seem to be a strategy. It appears he’ll have to choose. But does he? Will he?

Church of Climate Is An Anti-Carbon Cult Says Nick DeIuliis

.

Natural gas has reduced emissions on every score, including CO2 emissions, a fact the Church of Climate should love but it’s an anti-gas cult so…

The “Church of Climate” is a wonderful term. Nick Delullis is the president and CEO of CNX Resources Corporation. I wrote about him here, and while he may not have coined “Church of Climate” he employed it beautifully in an outstanding article in The Hill this week. What I like about the piece is the Delullis candor. He’s a standup guy of the first order.

When so many companies and institutions are are acting like lemmings and surrendering to green political correctness to abandon facts, logic and common sense, Delullis is rising up to effectively say “wait a minute, what in God’s name are you talking about.” He is speaking truth to those entranced by the Church of Climate lies and its refusal to acknowledge natural gas is not the enemy but the source of so many solutions, including those sought with the prayers of its adherents.

[Editor Comment: Camp Freedom helps heal disabled veteran heroes and others and is the beneficiary of Cabot donated pipe it is using for fencing. It doesn’t get better!]

In February, Cabot made a significant donation of drilling pipe earmarked for the salvage yard to the managers of Camp Freedom, a 1,800-acre retreat near Carbondale, PA, that provides outdoor healing adventures to individuals with disabilities, including veterans, first responders, their families and Gold Star families – those who are immediately related to a fallen service member.

Carbon Free New York or Cerebral Cortex Free New York?

[Editor Comment: Carbon Free New York is the latest sloganeering attempt at green political correctness in a state where government seems free of a cerebral cortex.

I have to give credit to the supporters for NYISO carbon pricing proposal.  They are pulling out all the stops.  The latest is a coalition of like-minding organizations named “Carbon Free New York” who believe “implementing the NYISO carbon pricing proposal in a timely and efficient manner and incorporating the cost of carbon into the electricity sector, New York will align its wholesale electricity markets with its public policy objectives to decarbonize the electricity sector as set forth in the Climate Leadership Community Protection Act (CLCPA)”.  I seriously doubt that any of these organizations really understand the ramifications of carbon pricing.

Governor Corruptocrat Shows Why He Deserves the Title

.

If there’s one story that irrefutably establishes the corrupt nature of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Governor Corruptocrat here at NaturalGasNOW, this is it.

When I labeled Andrew Cuomo as Governor Corruptocrat on these pages, some readers cheered. Others winced. I’ve stuck with it because I know it to be correct. Governor Corruptocrat is an apt description of a man who does absolutely nothing in his official capacity that is not designed to reward him personally. We all operate out of self-interest, of course, but our conscience and moral education drives most of us to selfless acts of responsibility to our communities on occasion at least. Not so with Andrew Cuomo, at least when he’s acting out his gubernatorial role. He’s 100% Governor Corruptocrat and what he’s done with respect to nursing homes proves it.

EMHS Kicks Its Food Bank Up A Notch with A Little Help from Its Friends

… 

[The Endless Mountains Health System (known simply as EMHS locally) is unique in that it also operates a food bank with a little help from its friends.]

Endless Mountains Health Systems (EMHS) joined a growing number of organizations in Susquehanna County, in July 2019, to help curb food insecurity by starting a food bank. During those summer months, offerings to approximately 90 families consisted primarily of fresh produce and dry goods. The CEO Weinberg Food Bank, which supplies the majority of what EMHS distributes, also furnishes frozen meat and dairy products, but the food bank volunteers lacked a way to keep those commodities cold.

Gene Yaw Blasts New York and New Jersey for Axing NESE Pipeline

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

 

Pennsylvania State Senator Gene Yaw lays it all out, with unapologetic language; New York and New Jersey governors stuck it to everyone in vetoing NESE.

Pennsylvania State Senator Gene Yaw, a Republican whose district covers portions of central and northeast PA, has his praiseworthy moments. This is one of them. Last week New York’s uber-corrupt Governor, Andrew Cuomo, and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, once again pandered to their radical Democrat base by rejecting a critically needed natural gas pipeline. The Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) pipeline would have flowed PA Marcellus shale gas to New York City and Long Island. Yaw blasted NY and NJ for their rejection using strong language.
