Times Up, Governor Cuomo: You Said You'd Revisit Fracking After Studies

Governor Cuomo, in 2014, said he'd revisit his fracking decision if the data later showed fracking was safe. There are now several such studies. It's time.

Governor Cuomo, on December 17,  2014, following a second-term election victory, made his infamous fracking decision with a view to burnishing his radical credentials. Being Governor Cuomo, though, he wanted a way out later if needed. He promised, therefore, to revisit the fracking issue on behalf of New…

Delaware Riverkeeper Asks DRBC to Stop Mariner East; Will It Regret It?

The Delaware Riverkeeper is forcing an issue with respect to DRBC authority and may (one hopes) come to regret it as others are forced to challenge both.

Here’s the latest strategy in THE Delaware Riverkeeper’s ongoing war against fossil fuels, and against natural gas pipelines in particular: Pressure the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to revoke a permit granted by the agency to the Mariner East 2 (ME2) pipeline project on the flimsy basis that ME2…

Holland Township Illustrates Renewables No Easy Substitute for Gas

Holland Township, New Jersey proves there is no free lunch when it comes to energy. Attempting to address energy needs with anything but reason never works.

Our friend and guest blogger, Jim Willis, over at Marcellus Drilling News, has his ear closer to the ground than anyone I know and regularly picks up stories outside the mainstream of gas industry news. One of…

North Korea Peace Brings Out Opportunistic Russian Plans

Potential peace talks with North Korea is encouraging the opportunist Kremlin to plan new pipelines into South Korea to reduce US market share.

President Trump’s meeting with the isolated nation of North Korea brings in a lot of potential hopes. Perhaps we can escalate tensions and military presence on the peninsula, maybe we can encourage the ruthless dictator to improve human rights, or perhaps, just maybe, we can reduce sanctions and become a trade partner…

When You’ve Lost the New York Times, You’ve Completely Lost

The New York Times, which led the fight against fracking in the early years with a series of attacks, has, for all practical purposes, admitted defeat.

Six years ago, the New York Times, America’s newspaper of “thou shalt think thus” instructions for elites, was still deep into a “Drilling Down” series of articles by Ian Urbina…

LNG Projects Happening Across World Equal Opportunity Here at Home

New LNG projects are taking place across the world, which means opportunity is knocking for U.S. gas produced in places such as Susquehanna County.

Reading the weekend’s natural gas news, one thing stuck out to me; how many LNG projects are underway to help other nations diversify their gas supplies. That, of course, means one thing for U.S. producers—growing opportunities. Moreover, these aren’t just opportunities for natural gas companies here at…

Sea Levels Rise, But Not From Natural Gas or Other Fossil Fuels!

Sea levels are rising but modestly and attempts to link this to use of natural gas or other fossil fuels or, for that matter, CO2, are just plain wrong.

Regardless of what you hear from the SW Florida Conservancy, and other sooth-sayers and saviors of the planet, data is mounting that change in sea levels has nothing to do with the use of fossil fuels and evidence should ally any fear that additional CO2 will increase sea-level rise.…

The timing couldn’t be more perfect.

They brought up a talking point from Tracy Carluuccio at the…
