Anti-fracking scandal: More junk 'science'

This is a very interesting bit of enlightenment brought to you by at least some people waking up to the junk science spouted by the anti drilling group and consumed by the liberal groups and politicains without first vetting . New York will be used as the poster child for stupid politics one day as will the Obama administration, I assure you the actions fit the words. I am very sure that we as a nation will not elect another star gazing liberal for president. JLCpulseBy Tribune-Review  Published: Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013, 9:00 p.m. in Triblive, Pittsburgh TribuneHaving let environmental extremism trump its own rules about relying on genuine science, the Obama administration's National Park Service has withdrawn an anti-hydraulic-fracturing document that cited a New York Times op-ed as scientific evidence.The park service document, a public comment on a proposal to allow fracking on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property, expressed concern about “the possible spill-over effect onto national park lands, which are often near or even surrounded by BLM property,” particularly harm to air quality, The Washington Times reports.Among supporting “evidence” the park service cited was a July 29 New York Times op-ed in which Anthony R. Ingraffea — whose work has been challenged by fellow researchers and rejected by the Department of Energy — said fracking causes leaks of methane, a greenhouse gas.Writing with egg on his face to U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, who chairs a House subcommittee on public lands and environmental regulation, park service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said the document shouldn't have been submitted, he didn't review it first and it should have cited peer-reviewed studies, not that...

Cuomo needs to read this

For four decades, whenever the American political debate turned to energy, the discussion was all about shortage and scarcity, a reality that haunted the United States ever since the global oil crises of the 1970s.That conversation is over.And now the unconventional energy revolution—newly accessible supplies of shale gas and oil—is creating a new discourse on energy that is changing politics and policies.

Fracking Cuts Costs, Adds Jobs, But Public Skeptical

By CIARAN McEVOY, INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY on 10/31/2013 Sparking an energy revolution that has been extolled as the savior of America's decaying industrial heartland as well as the provider of jobs and lower natural gas prices, perhaps the most striking thing about fracking is that the public is still — at best — conflicted about it.Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, is a technique in which water is mixed with chemicals and sand and is injected at high pressure to allow...

A Sucker Bet | National Review Online

If New York State needs an economic boost, it could, if it were so inclined, join in the natural-gas renaissance that is buoying the economies of states such as Texas and Pennsylvania — creating high-paying jobs across the skills spectrum and producing real wealth that benefits the gas-producing regions and the nation as a whole. But Governor Andrew Cuomo, skittish about fracking, will have none of that. Instead, he is pinning the state’s hopes of economic development on what may...
