Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Touts New Air Pollution Rules For Oil And Gas Industry

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

This is what real leadership by a governor is about in Colorado and in the national arena real leaders address the issues to protect everyone rights. They do not pander to their limited constituency's, they serve the interest of the whole state body. This is also what the BEST law in the land really looks like, protecting but not smothering. Clearly this is not New York's hostile business environment pretending to protect everyone while pandering to a few wealthy self interested contributors...

To us it is remarkable that the sitting governor of New York State would like an Ostrich put his head in a hole and believe his body and actions are not visible to others in the state or nation. This issue of landowner rights , jobs, economic revival and balance in government is not going to go away even if we treat the facts as if invisible. The issue is much bigger than a wannabe president who seems to believe that no one else in the nation is seeing his obvious lack of leadership and...

Why were casinos forced on the public while fracking, which would add real jobs, is stalled?

altThe smarmy side of Albany politics once again reared its ugly head on the road to the casino referendum, which was approved on election day and paved the way for seven new casinos, four of them Upstate. As sure as con man Christian Bale in "American Hustle,'' the casino advocates knew they had an easy mark in the Albany politicians. The casino operators had spent tens of millions in lobbying over the last decades and now, in the...

Here in the Lone Star State, we've had lots of recent success stories about bringing in many new businesses from California and New York, where the business climate is increasingly hostile due to higher taxes and increased regulations and restrictions.  Businesses and citizens continue to leave by the droves.  Enter New York state, in an attempt to stop the bleeding, now running ads for "Tax Free Zone" in local Texas television markets.  The...

Landowners in upstate New York have been treated like third-class citizens who are supposed to shut their mouths and pay their taxes while Andrew “Hamlet” Cuomo panders to city and suburban special interests. No more.

Yesterday, the 70,000 members of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York (JLCNY) finally launched their legal offensive against a recalcitrant governor and his two potted plants; the Commissioners of the...

3 Big Reasons You Should Love Fracking

Natural gas was one of the big winners in President Obama's recent State of the Union address. The president noted that "America is closer to energy independence than we've been in decades." He went on to say that "one of the reasons why is natural gas – if extracted safely, it's the bridge fuel that can power our economy with less of the carbon pollution that causes climate change."

That said, without fracking the natural gas that is changing our nation for the...

In Capital By Scott Waldman 5:00 a.m. | Feb. 18, 2014

ALBANY—U.S. energy secretary Ernest Moniz said Andrew Cuomo should consider the economic prosperity fracking has brought to Pennsylvania as he weighs a ban in New York.

Natural gas produced by fracking has boosted American industry by more than $100 billion and lowered CO2 emissions, Moniz said, in an interview with Capital.

“This new resource is of critical importance. If you look at Pennsylvania, it's amazing, in the Marcellus shale,”

New York State voters oppose fracking, 45 to 41 percent, in a Quinnipiac poll released on Wednesday morning, while more than a third say Cuomo is "dragging his feet" on a decision.

Among voters upstate, where high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale could create jobs, 46 percent support fracking, compared to 45 percent who oppose it. Suburban voters also support drilling, by a 44 to 40 percent margin.

But New York City...

Dear Friends, Coalition Leaders, Landowners, and Natural Gas Supporters,
 
As landowners in New York, we're generally envious of our neighbors to the south who are enjoying the benefits of Natural Gas production. We're working hard to restore our basic rights and enjoy the simple benefits that are being withheld from us so its easy for us to think that PA landowners are all set.
 
However, as the attached file makes clear, there are issues to...

Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,

I always knew that Landowners and Natural Gas Supporters had the courage of thier convictions. But even I understimated just how strongly you want to realize the benefits of safe and responsible Natural Gas development in NY.

I never expected that the fundraising for our flagship strategy of suing NYS and Governor Cuomo would be as wildly supported as it has been. But just a moment ago, WE BLEW THROUGH OUR $18,000.00 GOAL IN FAR LESS THAN THE TWO WEEKS...

The oil and gas industry has been the subject a variety of fear-based attacks from anti-fossil fuel activist groups in recent years, and the last week has seen a new one arise.  An activist group out of Boston, Ceres CERE +2.16%, issued a report on February 5 that aims to raise fears among large investors in oil and gas companies that the companies whose stock they hold may have a hard time sourcing water for their hydraulic...

Drilling rig strikes natural gas at new Owego school site

Folks this a good story for the JLCNY site for two reasons; 1)  those with an anti gas bias would read this as a gas incident related to drilling for natural gas. It was not a gas drilling incident it was an incident related to the drilling of a well for geothermal heat that because of the geology, ran into a gas pocket.
2. We who are interested in gas development see it as a confirmation of what we have been saying all along. There is natural gas in the  layers of shale at ground water...

BRIDGEWATER TOWNSHIP — This is the first winter that natural gas has been an option to heat homes in Susquehanna County.

Did Pennsylvania Just Change The Way States Talk To Businesses About Energy?

A good read for anyone in New York State that believes the endless and totally worthless ads which proclaim NY is open for business. These ads are nothing but glitzy expensive re-election and presidential campaign ads. The facts are what really counts and NY is still sliding down hill rapidly in the middle of a national economic recovery, deeper into debt with less freedom than any other state in the union. New York is going to grow on upstate vacation spending, casinos and forgiveness of taxes...
