What a gas! U.S. on top, but N.Y. behind

New York Post, Opinion, Monday October 7 2013 Amazing news from the U.S. Energy Information Administration: Thanks to the boom in oil and gas drilling made possible by hydraulic fracturing, aka fracking, the U.S. will surpass Russia as the world’s biggest energy producer in 2013. Take that, Vladimir. Beyond bragging rights, America’s fossil-fuel bonanza is doing wonders for the economy — narrowing the trade deficit, lowering energy costs, stimulating investment in manufacturing and, best of all, creating jobs. The trend is working for the planet, too, as power companies switch to cleaner-burning gas from coal — helping to drive emissions of climate-changing carbon dioxide down (yes, down) by almost 8% since 2007. New York — which sits atop massive reserves of natural gas — can and should be playing its part in this immensely beneficial revolution. But Gov. Cuomo is too cowed by anti-fracking hysteria to authorize safe, well-regulated drilling upstate. He is relegating the Empire State to the sidelines of history.

As other states move ahead, New York remains still on fracking As New York awaits decision, other states are moving forward

Written by Jon Campbell  Albany Bureau in the democratandchronicle.com 9/20/2013ALBANY — New York has a public that’s split, a Legislature with more critics than supporters and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who hasn’t signaled a position but whose administration has repeatedly delayed a decision. When it comes to hydraulic fracturing, New York is one of the last states to make a decision. With California and Illinois the latest to move toward installing regulations for fracking for oil and...

University Of Texas-Environmental Defense Fund Shale Gas Study Unmasks Politics Of Anti-Fracking Activist Cornell Scientists

By Jon Entine, contributor in Forbes OpEd on 9/18/2013One of the central tenets of anti-shale gas activists—claims that carbon pollution from methane leaked during the hydraulic fracturing extraction process makes natural gas more polluting than coal—took another, likely fatal, hit this week.A University of Texas-Austin study released Monday found that methane emissions from new wells being prepared for production, a process known as completion, captured 99% of the escaping...

Fracking, Filmmaking, And Carnival Barking

David Blackmon, Contributor 9/10/13 in Forbes A colleague asked me the other day why I refer to Gasland filmmaker Josh Fox as a “modern day carnival barker”.  I quickly realized the reason for the question:  This fellow is only about 30 and doesn’t know what a carnival barker is, or better put, used to be.  I sometimes forget how old I’ve gotten to be, so I suppose an explanation is in order.Those of us of advanced enough years remember back in the days when the traveling carnival...
