Binghamton Press reporting of a major Crestwood victory in September regarding its proposed Seneca Lake LPG storage facility speaks volumes on press bias.
Local media here in Broome County has helped drive our region into poverty with biased articles by the likes of Tom Wilber in particular, who incessantly writes about natural gas issues and glowingly features “activists” who are against anything having to do with fossil fuels. Meanwhile, he totally ignores…Continue

An awakening? Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says natural gas (along with propane) is the new alternative fuel; the elixir for cleaning Pennsylvania’s air.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf issued a press release Monday to take credit for/crow about handing out another $1 million of taxpayer money. This time the money is part of the state’s Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants (AFIG) program—a program aimed at replacing gasoline and diesel fuel or at least replacing a…Continue

Florida legislators resist the economic oil boom and debate a fracking ban in their state believing that oil and sunshine don’t mix.
A recent commentary in the local press of Southwest Florida, suggested renewable energy is the future, but the author reluctantly resigned himself to the fact oil is the preferred energy source for now.
We may add that “now,” based on the pace of progress made in renewables such as solar, wind, geothermal, and biofuels,…Continue

A proposed FERC rule to protect coal and nuclear power is a huge mistake. Government has no business picking energy winners and losers. Let the market work!
Abundant, affordable energy is the foundation of modern prosperity. One of the most pernicious things that the Obama administration did was to interfere with the availability of affordable energy, lavishing subsidies and regulatory support on any trendy, inefficient and expensive technology or energy…Continue

Andrew Cuomo a/k/a Gov. Corruptocrat, aided by a spineless Senate, is killing Upstate NY by throwing money at boondoggles while denying it a ready remedy.
Just how is that Upstate NY is supposed to survive the debacle that is Andrew “Corruptocrat” Cuomo and a mostly Upstate NY Republican Senate that enables him every step of the way? No clearer evidence exists of the state of corruption that is the Empire State than the continuing political freak show that is…Continue

China is on a natural gas tear. Following the U.S. lead, the country is developing its shale while. It’s also importing LNG. The reasons are environmental.
If any further proof is needed that natural gas development and use is the ticket to environmental improvement, it is provided by what China is doing. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports, in fact, that China leads…Continue

The Florida fracking debate in that state’s legislature has been one unending demonstration of the truth in that Gumpian adage; “stupid is as stupid does.”
Sometimes, I wonder that when people reach such a high level of achievement in politics, they seem to lose all their common sense and appear to become more stupid. This has been very apparent since our current Florida legislators have been in session, and they now want to approach the fracking ban issue,…Continue

There was a ludicrous anti-gas protest at Southpointe Business Park the other day. Thank the Warren Buffet family and other funders of the Tides Foundation.
Hey, it’s Thanksgiving break, woo hoo! Time for brainwashed college kids to break the law and claim they’re doing their civic duty by shutting down traffic in front of “evil” companies that are part of the Marcellus industry. A lawless mob of perhaps two dozen mal-educated young people along with some old…Continue

Most people use plastic products every day, but what they may not know is that natural gas plays a huge role in its manufacturing.
There is now another reason natural gas is so important in our everyday lives, plastic. Many of us use plastic products every day and never think about where they come from or how they are manufactured. The Marcellus and Utica Shales that are producing our affordable natural gas also produce a natural gas liquid called…Continue

Can the DRBC freely roam the Delaware River basin regulating and forbidding anything it wants that involves the use of water? That is the question at court.
Yesterday, oral arguments resumed at the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in the matter of the Wayne Land and Minerals Group’s lawsuit against the DRBC’s theft of property rights from upper basin landowners. The audio of those oral arguments …Continue

It isn’t just us saying it; Penn State University has also noticed greenhouse gases are declining as natural gas production is increasing significantly.
Earlier this month I wrote a piece here noting the EPA data shows greenhouse gases are dropping in the Marcellus and Utica regions even as natural gas production grows. Now,…Continue

The Delaware Riverkeeper is doing politics today, as it does a unique form of grass-roots lobbying for a fracking ban. Where is the IRS when we need them?
THE Delaware Riverkeeper is a radical environmental group operating as the self-appointed “caretaker” of the entire Delaware River Basin. It’s run by Maya van Rossum and gets its funding from a variety of foundations, mainly the William Penn Foundation. Riverkeeper’s cause célèbre is a complete,…Continue

The press has a bad case of the China Syndrome, believing the hype about that country suddenly leading in reducing CO2, when it’s the U.S. that’s doing it.
When the U.S. announced last June that it would pull out of the Paris Agreement, China—the world’s largestemitter of carbon dioxide—…Continue
