PennEast Pipeline Still Under Attack from William Penn Foundation Shills

The William Penn Foundation has funded, to the tune of $6 million, three groups who are doing politics through legal harassment of the PennEast Pipeline.

Last week three Big Green groups–the New Jersey Conservation Foundation, The Watershed Institute, and THE Delaware Riverkeeper–asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission via a joint letter to not issue an extension to the PennEast Pipeline, long-delayed largely because of those groups’ ongoing lawsuits. Two days later, THE Delaware Riverkeeper sent a followup letter to FERC to make “further comments” bashing PennEast.

Bill Graby: A Happy Warrior Who Fought New York Tyranny to the End

Vic Furman talks about Sullivan County, New York, farmer Bill Graby who fought for fracking for years and whose future was sold out by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

I offer this post In memory of my friend Bill Graby who has passed away but gave us all great encouragement because he was a true warrior. Don’t look for stats in this one because I know most visitors here are well aware of the truth about New York and its denial of economic revitalization to Upstate. But, I have to honor “Big” Bill Graby for his role in fighting back against this tyranny.

Australia Fires Generate More Global Warming “Heat” Than Light

Australia Fires John Droz, Jr.
Physicist & Citizen Advocate
Alliance for Wise Energy Decisions

John Droz assembles numerous informative articles on what’s really happening with Australia fires and it has next to nothing to do with global warming!

One of the top stories globally has been the horrifically bad bushfires in Australia.

Unfortunately the mainstream media has latched onto that as another “proof” that the world has been infected with “global warming” (e.g. here and here).

What this really proves instead is that what seems to be intuitive is often not true.

Mark Mathis Is 100% Correct: Too Much of Climate Science Isn’t

Mark Mathis of the Clear Energy Alliance has exposed the lack of science in far too much climate science, as Robert Bradley nicely explains below.

An ongoing exercise in groupthink is to believe the climate is in crisis because a scientific/political elite says so. Never mind that the Malthusians/ neo-Malthusians have been wrong with their ‘garbage-in, garbage-out’ models ever since the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) “limits to growth” model in 1972.

Enter Mark Mathis of the Clear Energy Alliance, a student of all things energy and climate and a distinguished communicator (see Appendix below).

New York Energy Bill from Cuomo to Consumers Could Top $47 Billion!

NIMBYismRoger Caiazza
Independent Researcher and Publisher,
Pragmatic Environmentalist of New York

New York energy policy under Andrew Cuomo is based on intermittent solar and wind and it’s going to create a bill to consumers that could top $47 billion!

On December 9, 2019 the Citizens Budget Commission (CBC) released a report entitled Getting Greener: Cost-Effective Options for Achieving New York’s Greenhouse Gas Goals  that addresses the impacts of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).   There is much to like about the report but I disagree with a few of their recommendations and have concerns about some of the methodology.

If you have an interest in New York energy policy I recommend that you read the entire document.  It is well written, comprehensively covers many of the issues associated with the CLCPA, and makes estimates of the resources needed to implement the CLCPA.  My first post discussed their findings, the second post addressed their renewable energy forecast to meet the CLCPA and the final post calculated the New York energy storage requirement for an example winter peak period.  The numbers and analyses described in this summary are documented in those three posts.

We Are the Renewable Energy Resources We Seek

The fallacy behind the theory peak oil and supposed shortages of other supposedly finite energy sources is that the resources are the minerals and not us.

The new year presents an opportunity to step back and appreciate the driver of progress in the free economy: the liberated, liberating entrepreneur. The change-makers of the market drive the creation and usage of resources, as well documented by the oil and gas extraction revolution of the last decade or more.

But a largely invisible, ongoing application in the U.S. and elsewhere deserves more attention. Instead of futile and wasteful (government) mitigation policy, the positive approach to climate policy is human ingenuity to anticipate, mitigate, or just capitalize on changing weather patterns, aka climate change.

RGGI Scam Proposed by Wolf Runs Into Building Trades Buzzsaw

Editor & Publisher, Marcellus Drilling News (MDN)

 

Pennsylvania’s trust-funder Governor, Tom Wolf, wants to sign the Commonwealth up for a RGGI scam Wolf to finance a slush fund but trade unions are onto him.

This is a slightly older story (from December), but an important story that deserves your attention. Last October, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf went completely off his rocker with a power-grab to force Pennsylvania into a regional RGGI alliance to tax natural gas-fired electric plants out of existence. Republicans controlling both the Pennsylvania House and Senate have pledged to stop him. Republicans now have an important new ally in their effort to stop Wolf; some 130,000 trade union members.

Environmental Advocates of New York and Friends Bleeding Upstate Dry

Environmental Advocates of New York, the Riverkeeper, EarthJustice, NY-PIRG, Sierra Club et al are simply bleeding Upstate New York dry says Vic Furman.

If you live in Upstate New York you either know what’s going on politically, or you have your head stuck in the “colon highway of ignorance.” Most people who come here to read blog posts are well aware and can’t wait to read the responses from the ignorant mentioned. If Tom prints this as written, then by now you have a smirk of anticipation of what’s to be written below.
