Opinion: Shale helping boost Pa. recovery

Very enlightening, it is excellent articles like this that make one wonder if our governor pays any attention to facts and the lives of upstate New York residents and TAXpayers. We can see the flames of success but cannot experience the warmth. JLCpulse

Make no mistake, the past few years have been difficult for Pennsylvanians looking to find well-paying jobs. Our state's unemployment rate has been stuck above 7 percent for more than five years. Many people have become so frustrated that they've stopped looking for work. The one bright spot has been Marcellus Shale development, which has offset this larger trend by providing hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians with meaningful work and newfound hope for their financial future.

Since shale development began in earnest just a few years ago, it has created more than 239,000 jobs, according to the state Department of Labor. Of these, more than 28,000 are in "core" positions that pay at least $83,000 per year, while the remainder are in fields that, while very different, support this development and employ hard-working people of diverse technical backgrounds.

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.

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...

(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.

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...

Lockheed Martin targets liquefied natural gas industry to boost Michoud manufacturing

This is the direction our nation (other than New York) is taking to make the necessary and now affordable steps to deal with bad air and global warming and a very bad balance of trade. Natural gas is the ideal short term solution (50 years)to a vexing problem problem for our country. Pair natural gas with fuel cells and you have hit a home run. Frankly I really doubt that solar and wind in their current forms will even play a part in our long term energy future.JLCpulse

USGS Newsroom 12/17/2013

TROY, NY – A new USGS study found that 15 percent of groundwater samples from 66 household wells across south-central New York contained methane at levels high enough to warrant monitoring or mitigation.  Methane was more common and had higher concentrations in wells located in valleys rather than wells located in uplands. Valley wells that tap confined bedrock were the most likely to contain high levels of methane.
