Obama Doesn't Pass Gas: New Methane Regulations

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

ByMichael Lynch Contributor in Forbes April 3, 2014

The role of methane in global climate change is important but often overlooked. Possibly this is because methane burning emits less CO2 than coal and oil, and many environmentalists consider fuel-switching to lower GHG emissions, rather than eliminate them with renewables, morally unacceptable. However, with the recent success of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in lowering natural gas prices, environmentalists, failing to find any serious damage from the practice, are now grasping at the greenhouse effect straw to oppose the practice.

Now the Obama Administration is announcing its intention to reduce methane emissions as part of its campaign to address the issue of climate change, and the usual suspects have pulled out the knives, intending to strengthen, modify, mutilate or kill any new regulations. Industry opposes any regulation, while environmentalists insist they are never good enough.

Flatulence is outside my area of expertise (well, cattle flatulence, at least), as is agriculture (despite coming from a long line of farmers, I can’t grow anything more than rabbit food) so I will address aspects relevant to the...

ALBANY—Andrew Cuomo may have put a freeze on the possibility of fracking in New York, but the supply of fracked natural gas coming into the state from elsewhere is greater than ever.

Last year, a record number of New York City’s buildings converted from oil to gas. And even as the governor defers a decision on whether to permit fracking in the name of a very long health study, his

administration is pushing aggressively to convert...

Lycoming County Assistant District Attorney Melissa Kalus argued against any reduction noting the five had participated in other protests and refused to disperse upon state police orders.

I find it painfully ironic that even as we sue the state and the governor for delaying the SGEIS, our suit is being delayed and motioned for outright dismissal. Such actions show how little respect landowners  have in Albany and brings to mind...

By Robert Shum 3/18/14 in The Hill --The Congress Blog

If the early 21st century is the “golden age of gas,” as the International Energy Agency has declared, who will be its king? Until 2009, the answer seemed obvious: Russia. But a funny thing happened on the way to the “third Rome” that Russian nationalists view as their destiny. In that year, propelled by the technological innovations of hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) and horizontal drilling, U.S. gas production surpassed that of...

For years, Gov. Cuomo has played Hamlet on the Hudson, using his environmental and health agencies as cover to delay making a decision on fracking.

For years, too, we’ve taken him to task for it. We’ve pointed out the jobs fracking would bring to an economically strapped upstate. We’ve argued for the tax revenues that would flow to Albany. We’ve even noted that President Obama and other Democrats regard fracking as a blessing.
