JLCNY REACTS TO LATEST QUINNIPIAC POLL ON NATURAL GAS DEVELOPMENT
February 13, 2014 – BINGHAMTON, NY— The Joint Landowners Coalition of NY issued the following statement in response to the Quinnipiac University Poll released February 12, 2014.
The current Quinnipiac University Poll that includes two questions on natural gas development underscores an important dichotomy – that even though upstate voters are consistently in support of developing natural gas in their own region, the unsupportive views of respondents from NYC continue to disproportionately affect the rights of upstaters. The irony of course is that NYC has the cleanest air it has seen in 50 years – largely due to the increased use of natural gas to replace other heating fuels. This is the ultimate NIMBY sentiment and a prolongation of upstate views having no will in their own domain.
