Please note that one of the most vocal anti-gas protesters, Chip Northrup, has encouraged his bongo beating followers to attend this event. He is so insecure that the anti-gas propaganda will be shown for what is that he incites them to jeer after each pro-gas comment and disrupt the event! Not only is he afraid that his ideology can't stand up to reasonable debate and civil discourse, but he even resorts to juvenile playground name calling when he refers to the pro-gas speakers. This only confirms to us that he has no credibility! But it gets better...

Prices of Natural Gas Avoid Volatility of Past Winters

By Russell Gold     Jan. 28, 2014 6:42 p.m.  In the Wall Street Journal Business Section 

Freezing temperatures are creating near-record demand for natural gas in the U.S. as shivering Americans turn up the heat and plug in their electric blankets.

Natural-gas prices have jumped in response, topping $5 per million British thermal units for the first time since 2010 as fuel has been pulled from underground storage vaults to keep...

Obama's `All-The-Above' Energy Push Becomes A Strategy Of One

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 0.00 (0 Votes)

I am always amazed at the shortsightedness of the environmental extremists with regard to gas , the president called it a bridge, we agree. No one has ever denied the potential benefits of solar or wind derived energy, although wind sure is a serious polluter of space and our environment. If all the money spent trying to slay the golden goose were spent on finding wise and safe ways of using the gift of significant gas reserves, we would be way ahead of where we are. A strong headwind has never...

Home-rule hooey

By The Post Editorial Board 1/28/2014

Let’s see if we’ve got this straight.

When two state senators put forward a bill that would require a town’s clear approval — e.g., by a law or referendum — before a new casino is sited there, the governor’s spokeswoman denounces it as “politicizing the [site-]selection process.”

But when the industry is natural gas and the issue is hydraulic fracking, somehow home rule is more acceptable. Here the governor remains silent as anti-fracking activists push...

The Heat is on

The New York Post Editorial Board,  in The New York Post 1/26/2014

New York must be running out of room: Only days after Gov. Cuomo said there’s “no place in the state” for “extreme conservatives,” Mayor de Blasio said he doesn’t “see any place for fracking.”

De Blasio seems to be on the wrong side of history here, particularly in his own city. That’s because more and more New Yorkers are heating with natural gas — which can be supplied via fracking.

Nearly 1,300 owners of large city...

We can only hope and pray that if he waits long enough his fearless leader will be out of office and Shah will be out of a job. Who would have thought that two (DOH and DEC) very esteemed state regulatory agency's would be headed by do nothing political yes boys. They have wasted millions of taxpayer dollars leading their agency's in circles while tearing the guts out of their staffs professionalism. It is likely that like every other thing our governor does what will be left is nothing but a...

Make a Fracking Decision

By The Editors of The NewYork Observer 1/21/2014

Last May, Governor Andrew Cuomo promised that he would make a decision on whether to allow fracking in New York by the beginning of 2014.

A quick check of the calendar suggests that the governor‘s long-awaited decision has passed its due date.

Mr. Cuomo’s decision is expected any minute now (although we’ve heard that one before). And with any luck, he’ll put aside the posturing and protests of fracking opponents and put his administration on...

It’s that time of year again, when fracking opponents pay Common Cause to put out a report minimizing their own lobbying activities and wailing about the those of the oil and gas industry. 

Several times a year, with more regularity than Halley’s Comet, a strikingly similar headline appears in the pages of New York news media about how the oil and gas lobby has outspent fracking...

(CNSNews.com) – Twenty-one scientists sent a letter this month to Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown praising the use of fracking in California by oil companies and the new regulations on the procedure put in place that, they believe, will allow for a safe way to develop the “extraordinary” potential of the state’s shale oil reserves, improve the economy, create jobs, and reduce dependence on foreign oil.

Jerry Brown is a long-time liberal Democrat and the California State Legislature, Senate...

Anyone paying attention to Binghamtons past mayor was aware that his mission was personal gain in the form of a job working for the anti job crew in Ithaca. The city spent thousands of dollars on specious missions designed to build up emotions while doing absolutely nothing to forward the interests of city residents. You will recall he was thrown out of Dimmock when wasting their time and energy on his personal agenda. Anyone who understands the issues of drilling in New York State knows it...

State gets hearing on fracking lawsuit pushed back to March

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 0.00 (0 Votes)

Folks, it was always anticipated that an extension would be asked for and granted. Any judge would have granted the extension and West would not object given the time frames involved and the sheer volume of data. It is just an indication of the money wasted by the state on a really unjustified delay in the first place. Shame on the governor. So this is standard operations and no one should interpret it otherwise. JLCpulse

FRACKING PRODUCES FRESH WATER! I thought I would take a picture of the ice on my parents house above their natural gas boiler vent. I get a kick out of the antifracking cult members when I tell them that burning (oxidizing) natural gas (CH4) produces more fresh water than what is used to frack for that same volume of gas. They look at me with a twisted face and say it's not so with some self perceived intellect which is certainly unmerited in their...

By Phil Hall in The Hill, Congressional Blog

On December 19, 2013, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office quietly issued a press release announcing that $210 million in initial funding was being poured into something called the “New York Green Bank.” The governor’s spin doctors insisted that this endeavor was a “bold, new market oriented approach to accelerate clean energy deployment, create jobs, and help make our communities more resilient and sustainable.”

Uh huh. The only genuinely...
