The Dubious Scientific Foundation for New York’s Fracking Ban

  ,

This week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) announced that New York will not allow hydraulic fracturing to occur within the state, based upon a newly released report by the state’s Department of Health (DOH), which claimed that there isn’t enough scientific evidence to ensure the process is safe. DOH...

Rally for our Rights and Prosperity

Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
 
Next Wednesday Governor Cuomo will deliver his State Of The State Address in Albany, pleased for having handed a Natual Gas ban deal to his progressive elite backers and supporters.
 
In recognition of his denying NY citizens their constitutional rights and opportunities for the benefits Natural Gas development will bring to NY workers, families, and communities the anti-gas protesters will hold a celebratory rally in Albany at that same time. I...

Zane: The Orwellian leftist foes of fracking in NC

There is nothing different going on in other states than is and has been going on in New York. The difference in New York is that our politicians are willing to impose non science politics on upstate no matter the cost in lives and jobs. So sad, so silly.JLCpulse

What Happens To OPEC And The Oil Price If Fracked Shale Isn't The High Cost Producer?

By Tim Worstall in Forbes 1/13/15

It’s easy enough to read the basic policy that OPEC is following over the oil price at present. They’re losing market share to unconventional oil producers and they’re not happy about that. So, they’re entirely happy to allow the price to fall so as to keep their own market share. The basic assumption is that those large conventional reservoirs will always be cheaper to produce from than those unconventional deposits. Thus, as the price falls, the...

Pro-Drillers Out in Force at Constitution Pipeline Hearing in Binghamton

By James Willis of MarcellusDrilling. com  1/12/15

Last night MDN editor Jim Willis “took one for the team” and attended a New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) hearing in Binghamton, NY on the application of the Constitution Pipeline. Even though the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved the Constitution, the state DEC must grant a 401 Water Quality Certificate that allows the Constitution to lay pipe through and under swamps, creeks and other bodies...

Strong manufacturing is good for everyone

By Bryan Iams in The Hill 1/12/15

With many new faces taking their seats in Congress, there has never been a better time for our elected officials to come together to leverage the current revival in U.S. manufacturing. 

Now, more than ever, manufacturing is making important contributions to our economy. According to the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), U.S. manufacturing accounts for more than 17 million, well-paying American jobs, and output has increased by 18 percent since...

Fracking helps America — whether you like it or not

By Richard Downey in PressConnects.com 1/10/15

Energy continues to make headlines. While New York refuses to issue permits for high-volume hydraulic fracturing, oil broke the $50 a barrel mark, bringing gasoline to $2.50 a gallon nationally. That's more than a dollar a gallon pocketed by drivers every time they fill up compared to last year.

Thank a fracker!

Shale plays in Texas and North Dakota have increased U.S. oil production to 9 million barrels a day, upsetting markets and decreasing...

The debate about fracturing must be based on sound science

In Times Record News  1/11/15

WICHITA FALLS, Texas - Hydraulic fracturing has been accused by environmental groups of everything from polluting water supplies to contaminating the air to causing cancer to inducing earthquakes.

The hysteria they have been able to create has people scared to death (no pun intended). Some residents have become so frightened that citizens have asked their city officials to prohibit hydraulic fracturing within the city limits. Texas cities — such as...

Fracking: New York, California and the perils of ignoring science

California and New York are often viewed as outliers -- large, influential and politically liberal states that can be either bellwethers for public policy or objects of bemusement.

Fracking Supporters in New York Aren’t Giving Up, Despite State Ban

Folks, there seems to be some question as to the number of people who attended the pro gas rally. Seems the press reporter may have asked how many seats were available. At the height of the rally all 200 hundred available seats were full and the standing area to the rear of the room was full as well. In addition there was a huge crowd in the lobby. 500-600 may be low, but we will go with that estimate before believing the Press. JLCpulse

State seeks comments on Constitution Pipeline

Folks, we need to attend and voice our opinions on this pipeline. We need the jobs, we need the lower cost gas in our small towns and the jobs that can be attracted and held in our area by the gas. We are not sure that the company strong arm tactics should be condoned in negotiations over fair land value, but frankly we do not have enough information to definitively make a judgement. With natural gas, half of what you hear is truth and the other half is hyperbole and out right lies.JLCpulse

Collins Hopes To Prove Cuomo Administration Wrong On Fracking

In State of Politics 1/7/2014 Time Warner Cable News

Western New York Congressman Chris Collins has made no secret of the fact he’s unhappy with the Cuomo Administration’s stance on hydrofracking.  As the Clarence Republican enters his second term, he’s hoping to use a more prominent role in the 114th Congress to prove the Governor got it wrong.

“Economically New York State needs to be hydrofracking and certainly in the Southern Tier the benefits would be tremendous,” said...

NY Rally Fires Up Landowners to Fight Cuomo Frack Ban

1/6/2015

New York landowners assembled in downtown Binghamton, NY at the Holiday Inn yesterday to attend a protest rally organized by the 70,000-member Joint Landowners Coalition of New York (JLCNY). The crowd at the rally was enormous–at least 500 people (perhaps more) who filled a banquet hall and spilled out into the corridor. The crowd was fired up and ready to do something to counter Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to ban fracking in the Empire State. MDN editor Jim Willis was there and...

Andrew Cuomo’s fracking psuedo-science

What do Bigfoot and New York’s ban on fracking ban have in common? The evidence supporting the existence of both is equally (un)credible.

Gov. Cuomo last month made history by making New York the first state in the nation with significant natural-gas deposits to ban hydraulic fracturing, a k a fracking.

It’s a process that uses a mixture consisting of 90 percent water, 9.5 percent sand, and 0.5 percent chemical additives to...

11 Tier companies filed WARN notices in 2014

Seems that the TV ads did not reach these businesses proclaiming New York is open for business. From the look of things around here, New York is closing businesses because of excessive taxes and really short sighted programs to pay for jos by taxing existing businesses to death. Please take the time to call the governors office at 518-474- 8390 and make your opinion known, every hour of every day until he wakes up and realizes just how short sighted his vision for NY is.

Judge: Big Flats wells not contaminated by gas drilling

Staff and wire reports 2:17 p.m. EST December 30, 2014 in StarGazette.com
A federal judge has ruled against nine Chemung County homeowners who claimed their drinking water was contaminated by a nearby natural gas well drilled by Denver-based Anschutz Exploration Corp.
U.S. District Judge Charles Siragusa in Rochester decided the homeowners had failed to prove the silt and methane that befouled their wells was caused by the gas well drilled a half mile from their homes in 2010. The decision...
