Constitution Pipeline Asks Supremes To Rule Cuomo’s DEC Out of Order

Constitution Pipeline, having been double-crossed by Andrew Cuomo’s DEC, is taking its case to the very top in an effort to call out New York’s dirty tricks.

Constitution Pipeline was double-crossed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). It clearly happened at the direction of Mr. Machiavellian himself, Governor Andrew Cuomo, for whom every nook and cranny of human life is a political decision for him to exploit. The company,…

The William Penn Foundation and It’s Plan to Make A Playground for Elites

The William Penn Foundation is using money made in chemicals to buy virtue, together with a playground for elites; a playground where we are but quiet serfs.

There’s nothing elites despise more than the rabble. Oh, they sing a tune of noblesse oblige to be sure, but you won’t find them at War-Mart. They view us as deplorables to be managed and kept at a distance. They see the beauty of the places we call home—the places we have to make a living—and…

Shell Cracker Pipeline Opposition Another Window Into World of Fractivism

Opposition to a pipeline that will serve the Shell cracker in Western Pennsylvania offers a window into the ignorant world of fractivism and offers lessons.

For three nights in a row this past week the Pennsylvania Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) conducted hearings for Shell’s proposed Falcon ethane pipeline, a 97-mile pipeline system with two “legs” that will feed the Shell cracker plant now under construction in Monaca, Pennsylvania. It was a window…

Natural Gas NOW readers pass along a lot of stuff every week about natural gas, fractivist antics, emissions, renewables, and other news relating to energy.

Nick Grealy Was Right!

Although he was no fan of David Cameron, the former UK Prime Minister, I dearly wish Nick Grealy was still alive to hear what Cameron has been saying recently about the UK’s successful drilling of its first shale well.…

How US Fracking Companies Defeated OPEC with Innovation

U.S. shale gas producers beat OPEC soundly through innovation in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling techniques; a continuing shale revolution.

One of our readers just sent me a wonderful article from a news site called Lima Charlie News. I was not previously aware of the site but it’s one I’m bookmarking due to the quality of this particular post entitled “…

Curiously, New York City Now Needs More Natural Gas and Pipelines

New York City public housing faces an energy crisis brought on by an inadequate supply of natural gas the City, at every opportunity, says it doesn’t want.

Three fascinating articles appeared recently about New York City’s natural gas usage, The City, like much of New York, is an exceedingly strange place by normal standards; one where the facts must be roundly denied in favor of the political correctness rules of the day.

It’s a place where natural…

Marcellus Shale Coalition: Gov. Wolf’s Policies Don’t Match His Rhetoric

David Spigelmyer, President of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, calls out Gov. Tom Wolf for political rhetoric and state policies that simply don’t match up.

Gov. Wolf recently shared some encouraging insights on Pennsylvania’s energy future. “The shale gas resources in the Appalachian Basin represent enormous economic opportunity,” he said in a news release announcing efforts aimed at attracting more manufacturing to the commonwealth.

If only the…

Hydraulic Fracturing: What Can’t It Do for Our Energy Security?

Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling are the twin tanks of the shale revolution and it’s not just about gas; it’s about crude oil and security, too.

Yesterday’s Today In Energy post at the Energy Information Administration (EIA) site tells so much about the beauty and extent of the shale revolution. The combination of hydraulic…

The Proponents of the DRBC Fracking Ban Are Anti-Science

Proponents of the DRBC fracking ban are, plainly and simply, anti-science; unwilling to accept the results on continuous ongoing water studies in the SRBC.

As someone who lives in the area covered by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC), I read with dismay recent letters to the editor encouraging the DRBC to usurp private property rights to appease a loud, anti-science minority who oppose the goal of energy independence for the United States and the…

Duplicitous Bill McKibben Shills for Rockefeller Special Interests

Whiny Delaware Riverkeeper Says It Should Be Above the Law

The Delaware Riverkeeper Network, personalized as Maya van Rossum, a/k/a Delaware Povertykeeper tells FERC it should be above the law with no responsibility.

We are a country governed by the rule of law. Part of our system of laws (for better or worse) invests government bureaucracies with delegated power to make rules and regulations–which carry the weight of law. Children who are not disciplined (at home and at school) grow up to be adults who think silly…

Why Is Pennsylvania DCNR Using PennVest to Make A Northwest PA Wilderness?

Pennsylvania’s DCNR appears to be using the state’s Infrastructure Investment Authority (PennVest) to create a private Northwest PA Wilderness with public funds.

I have written here several times about the nature of the wealthy foundations, motivated by special interests, who are behind fractivism. They seek guilt-alleviating power and influence, hope to protect hedge fund investments in “clean energy” and engage in land scams threatened by natural gas…

Let’s Help Bring Relief to Balkans from High Priced Russian Gas and Blackmail

The Balkans region of Europe has been forced to depend on Russian gas; by strengthening ties with the U.S. they hope to address this Russian meddling.

One year ago this week, the Senate voted 97-2 to admit Montenegro as the 29th member of NATO. Last week also marked 19 years since NATO planes bombed what was left of Yugoslavia.

The anniversary should serve as a reminder that the fledgling democracies of the six independent republics of the former…
