Betty Sutliff quotes Gov. Tom Wolf on natural gas development from when he wasn’t acting as a DRBC member and was actually representing Pennsylvanians.
Politicians such as Governor Tom Wolf have a habit of saying the darnedest things, especially where it comes to natural gas development but it seems to matter a lot who they’re addressing.
In this post I am choosing to let the politicians speak for themselves and readers can compare their statements then with what they’re saying now about natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin.
Here’s what Hillary Clinton said in a speech in June, 2014):
“We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand up against any effort, ‘Oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you,’ and a lot of that money supporting that effort was coming from Russia.”
Now combine this with a May, 2016 quote from our governor that appeared in City & State New York:
“They’re a lot more restrictive,” Wolf griped at a July event, when asked about Cuomo’s policies. “It’s so restrictive in New York that we can’t even pipe our gas across its borders to New England, which really needs a clean source of energy.”
