Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
 
While I have always believed that the facts and science support developing our Natural Gas in NY and that polls are a poor indicator of the strength of support for doing so, a new poll is out that I feel we should take part in.

 The Weekly Follies In which we drill down into the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed to briefly chronicle the week’s silliness, shenanigans, fake news and real news related to the oil and natural gas industry.

 This week’s Follies begin with a selection from our Tales of Gaseous Emissions File:  Talk About Natural Gas – Cow Belches Top EPA Methane Emissions Sources List – There’s a new methane champ, says the Environmental Protection Agency,  which found in a new draft report on greenhouse gases that cattle passed the natural-gas industry as the biggest source of U.S. methane emissions in 2012.  The EPA also revised some of its 2011 findings, again turning to cows as the culprit—specifically, enteric fermentation in cattle—in methane emissions, according to the EPA. The multiple-compartment stomachs in cattle create the methane, resulting in bovine belches. Despite better digestibility in cattle feed over the years, methane emissions from cattle has risen more than 2% since 1990,  said the EPA, because of upward trends in cattle populations.

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. JLCpulse

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is touting the state's new air pollution curbs on the oil and gas industry — but he insists that local efforts to curb drilling run afoul of constitutional property rights.

The governor gathered environmentalists, state health officials and representatives of the oil and gas industry Tuesday to tout new air-quality controls.

The rules, adopted over the weekend, include the nation's first statewide limits on methane emissions from the oil and gas industry.

The rules also call for infrared cameras to detect air pollution at oil and gas sites. State health officials say the changes will make a significant dent in the types of emissions that contribute to ozone pollution.

"Some people feel this still does not satisfy the issue of local control," said Hickenlooper, referring to groups pushing for longer setbacks and other drilling...

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 penchant for attempting to destroy anyone who disagrees with him. He should take a look at the news and actions of Colorado's Democratic governor who acknowledges the constitutional rights of the landowners in his state even under environmental extremist’s pressure. It would be really nice for New York to be a productive member of the United States rather than bleeding jobs at an unbelievable rate and asking for federal support. JLCpulse

A recent opinion piece in the New York Times brings to mind one of the most frequently quoted lines ever to appear in a newspaper editorial: “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.”

The editorial, which appeared in the New York Sun in 1897, was written in response to a letter to the editor from eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, daughter of New York City coroner’s assistant Philip O’Hanlon.

The letter was brief: “Dear Editor, I am eight years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus...

Dear Friends, Coalition Leaders, Landowners, and Natural Gas Supporters,

Our lawsuit against Governor Cuomo, the Department of Environmental Conservation and the Department of Health was filed on February 14, 2014. Our 70,000 landowner lawsuit received widespread national attention. Thank you for everything you did to make this effort possible. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304315004579383251980462952?KEYWORDS=Scott+Kurkoski&mg=reno64wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702304315004579383251980462952.html%3FKEYWORDS%3DScott%2BKurkoski

Thank you also to the Mountain States Legal Foundation. Their assistance has been invaluable. On February 14, 2014, MSLF President William Perry Pendley appeared on Fred Dicker Live from the State Capitol. Here is a link to the podcast. Mr. Pendley’s segment starts at 29:10 minutes. http://www.talk1300.com/podcast/%23Fred%20Dicker%20Live%20from%20the%20State%20Capitol.

As many expected, the New York State Attorney General has already requested an adjournment of the proceedings. Over the opposition of our attorneys, the court gave the Attorney General until April 4, 2014 to respond to our Petition. Oral argument will be scheduled as soon as a judge has been assigned to our case. It’s hard to believe that after 6...

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 ads brag that new businesses will operate "tax free" for 10 years.  The ad follows up the START-UP NY program put in motion by Governor Andrew Cuomo on October  22, 2013.  The ads have been running in major Texas cities and the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

 A May 2013 press release states, "Under Tax-Free NY, Any New Business Will Be Able to Operate Tax Free on a SUNY Campus for Ten Years."  That's all well and good, but most businesses plan to be around longer than 10 years.  They also like to be flexible about location.  More to the point, they don't like surprises, even ones they might plan for.  The New York state taxes in question are significant -- state income tax; business tax; corporate, state, and local taxes; property tax; and franchise tax.  Businesses will still have to contend with...
