Warren Buffett may be the world’s most famous corporatist—manipulator of government to serve private special interests—and he’s funding pipeline opposition.

Pipeline activists like Winona LaDuke and Honor the Earth are, by definition, “professional,” as they get paid to be activists.

The bigger question has always been: who pays them? The simplistic answer is that it appears to include those who benefit from delaying pipelines.

Labor Day (and Every Other Day) Should Also Be “Thank Energy Day”

Labor Day is an opportunity to reflect on the modern life made possible by natural gas and other fossil fuels; a life that rescued mankind from drudgery.

Labor Day commemorates productive America. Begun in the late 19th century by the U.S. labor movement, the first Monday in September is celebrated annually as a public holiday.

The unofficial end of summer also is a peak travel time. This Labor Day weekend, a record 17.5 million passengers are expected to fly to hundreds of U.S. destinations and around the world, according to the trade group Airlines for America. And that means a high demand for energy, specifically petroleum to fuel the planes.

Labor Day could also be called Thank Energy Day. Human productivity is enabled by the appliances and machines that run on mineral (dense) energies, either directly or indirectly via electrical generation.

Constitution Pipeline Approved As FERC Drives Stake Through DEC Heart!

Natural Gas NOW


The Constitution Pipeline has a go-ahead by FERC as it drives a stake into the heart of corrupt Cuomo’s DEC. The project not only lives but will be built!

We have long argued here that Williams was lulled into a trap on its Constitution Pipeline project by corrupt Governor Andrew Cuomo’s DEC. It played ball with the DEC by repeatedly resubmitting its water quality certification applications at the agency request, which was a naked move by Cuomo to allow time for special interests to gin up opposition so he could then instruct DEC to deny it.

Cuomo never cared whether it got built or not; he just wanted the green street cred for opposing it. He knew the courts would ultimately decide, anyway. By participating in the resubmission scam Williams only delayed the day of reckoning it desired. But, thank goodness, they’ve stuck with the project through it all and learned how to fight. They’ve been rewarded with a beautiful FERC go-ahead issued on Wednesday that sets the stage for the final court appeal which, based on earlier decisions, should be a slam-dunk for the Constitution Pipeline!

First Responders Pick Up Support from Cabot Oil and Gas

Susquehanna and Wyoming County first responders have received some very important support from Cabot Oil and Gas to help with emergency issues as gas grows.

As natural gas drilling escalates in Susquehanna County, the calls to first responders in neighboring communities also increases. While fire departments in Susquehanna County bare the brunt of any requests, those in northern Wyoming County serve as an important second line of defense. While Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation has no drilling operations in Wyoming County, first responders there still need to be prepared for a variety of scenarios.

Natural Gas NOW


A Washington Examiner op-ed column by Kevin Mooney points out the political corruption with the DRBC’s proposed fracking ban and says “the jig is about up.”

Kevin Mooney has been following the DRBC for some time. He just published an op-ed in the Washington Examiner, in fact, partially based on a recent interview with me. As usual, Kevin quickly gets right to the heart of things. He articulates the points many of us have been making for a long time. We’ve been saying the DRBC is a corrupt agency in political debt to the same William Penn Foundation that funds the Delaware PovertyKeeper and we have the emails and records to prove it.

New York’s Gaslighting Politicians Shift Blame for Gas Shortages

Tom Shepstone
Natural Gas NOW


Gaslighting politicians in New York are busy shifting blame for natural gas shortages, caused by their own short-sighted policies. onto energy companies.

New York State’s gaslighting politicians are moving into high gear blaming utility companies for the natural gas shortages these same elected buffoons created by starving those companies of gas.

Gaslighting is defined in this advice column as a psychological tool of manipulation “designed to convince you of three things:

  1. You are wrong.
  2. The discrepancy that lies between the truth and falsehood is harmless.
  3. If you fight for the truth, something is wrong with you and/or something bad will happen.”

This is precisely what New York gaslighting politicians such Andrew Cuomo and Joseph Addabbo are doing with their constituents and the energy companies serving them.

Cuomo Energy Decisions Taking Us in Wrong Direction and Hurting Others

Angela O’Connor
Power & Utilities Strategy Consultant


Cuomo energy policies are taking us precisely in the wrong direction on climate, killing business in New York and hurting New England big-time as well.

For 15 days from late 2017 into January of 2018, New England experienced a cold snap that drove temperatures to historic lows, leaving millions of people facing life or death conditions if they couldn’t keep their homes warm. In those two weeks, New England burned 2 million barrels of oil and increased the use of coal because cleaner fuel sources were not available. This fuel shortage became so dire, the entity responsible for overseeing New England’s power grid, the ISO-NE, estimated the region was only 48 hours from running out altogether.
