JERSEY SHORE — A district judge denied a motion Wednesday to reduce bail for five members of Marcellus Shale Earth First who were arrested last week for blocking a road leading to natural gas wells in Lycoming County.

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.

Intelligence indicates the group expects to remain in the area and plans to build tree stands at the site of potential well pads from which to protest, state Trooper James Wool testified before District Judge Jerry Leply.

Leply denied the bail reduction despite each defendant promising not to break the law or engage in civil disobedience if thye were released from jail.

The five, members of the organization that describes itself as a regional network of “earth firsters” united in the struggle to stop fracking, were among approximately 20 protestors that blocked Dam Run Road off of state Route 287 last Thursday morning.

Fracking is the process in which water, sand and other materials are forced into the...

The Constitution Pipeline project will be good for New York state because it will increase critical energy supply infrastructure to bring inexpensive natural gas from Pennsylvania to power homes and businesses. It will also be good for our region of New York state because it will bring natural gas to power Amphenol Aerospace in Sidney, the largest private sector employer between Albany and Binghamton — with more than 1,000 jobs.

Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
 
Last week we received a motion to dismiss our law suit and an order to attend a hearing to present oral arguments on April 25, 2014 (please read the attached file for more information on that).
 
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...

Can fracking save the world?

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...

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A lack of pipelines into New England is making natural gas costlier, pushing up wholesale electricity prices in the region by 55 percent last year, the region's electric grid operator said Tuesday.

The average price of wholesale electric energy rose to $56.06 per megawatt hour, up from a historic low of $36.09 in 2012, ISO-New England said.

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.

What is interesting to me is the subjectivity that is creeping into the discussion on Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. It seems that it is easy to find individuals on both sides of the argument while actual historic facts and science do not present a high degree of subjectivity. Real well recorded history is fact, as are issues of science which are vetted professionally by peers and genuine experts in the field of study being reviewed. Here is an example of subjectivity; many folks...

(Reuters) - Natural gas pipelines and power utilities across the United States struggled for several weeks to keep lights on and homes warm through the coldest winter in decades, but it may take many months for the cost and the fallout of the so-called "polar vortex" to work through the energy chain.

As sub-freezing temperatures spread in January and February, spot natural gas prices spiked at many gas delivery points in the Midwest, Northeast and New...
