Andrew Cuomo, acting through the hack leadership at his DEC and spurred on by the NRDC gang is attacking what’s left of New York’s Oil & Gas Industry.

Does the oil and gas industry in New York State even matter anymore? Well, yes, it does! It employs a number of people and produces oil and gas to feed our economy.

Germany Surrenders: Effectively Admits Energiewende Was A Failure

Germany is helping to build a LNG terminal to bring in Appalachian gas and correct for the failure of its Energiewende, which led to more coal and emissions.

Simply Lying: The Real Story Behind Keep Wayne Wild

Keep Wayne Wild is phony fractivist outfit with apparent connections to both the extremist CELDF and the Sierra Club. It’s also a for-profit T-shirt outlet.

It takes real gall to be a fractivist. You have to be able always to disguise who you really are. More importantly, you must be equipped with the chutzpah to do so brazenly in spite of the obvious. Our friend Jackie Stewart at Energy In Depth lays out the case for just an outfit. It’s a group…

Amazon Corporate Welfare Yet Again Shows Upstate New York Is Invisible

The Amazon corporate welfare deal, engineered by Andrew Cuomo, yet again, shows Upstate New York is invisible to the governor who answers only to NYC voters.

Once again, Upstate New York will feel the pain, the tragedy, of four more years being under the thumb of Andrew Cuomo, perhaps America’s worst governor if you live outside New York City.

State politics are non-existent north of the five boroughs that compose the City of New York.  We just don’t…

The Fractivist Trail of Hypocrisy and Double Standards

Fractivists are the worst hypocrites. Most hypocrites have standards they violate. A trip down the fractivist trail, though, shows only double standards.

Wine trails, antique trails and historical trails; there seems to be a trail for everything these days. A combination of websites, maps and trail signs lead us to various attractions in which we might have an interest. Most states have historical marker programs, in fact, to giver us little tidbits of why…

Colorado Fracking Votes Uphold Property Rights

Two interesting Colorado fracking votes indicate support for property rights and opposition to extremist regulations that amount to regulatory takings.

Yesterday’s election produced some rather remarkable votes regarding Colorado fracking. The state is a significant oil and gas producer. Fractivists, though, were able to get an initiative placed on the ballot called Proposition 112 that would have gutted the industry by requiring 2,500 feet setbacks for…
