Keeping the fruit of one’s labor, that is property, is one of our natural rights. It is being taken by those who would steal that fruit for themselves.
Land is property, the fruit of one’s labor. It can only be held through constant labor, in fact, that will pay the taxes and maintain its economic value. Like all property, personal or otherwise, it is one of the natural rights of humans willing to put the labor into making it productive. If we cannot keep the…Continue

Opportunities follow natural gas development, whether its creating jobs, saving on energy costs or lowing emissions, it’s changing lives for the better.
The first time I heard of natural gas development I knew, by the excitement in the voice of the person telling me, this was going to do amazing things for our area. Little did I know then how much opportunity was about to be created. As natural gas leases were signed by landowners and farmers, you started to…Continue

A new landowner group, UDRBC, has been formed to fight back against the DRBC and anyone else threatening the rights of Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens.
With the DRBC continuing to encroach upon property owner rights in the Delaware River Watershed, the need for a coalition spanning multiple counties and multiple states has never been greater. Members of the Upper Delaware River Basin Citizens (UDRBC) believe this; for the people who actually live and work…Continue

The cowardly DRBC that wants us to imagine it’s fearful of what natural gas production might mean for the river basin is full of balderdash – it uses gas!
The resolution to consider some vague sort of ban on fracking in the Delaware River basin wasn’t the only one adopted by the DRBC on September 13, 2017. There was another and this one makes a mockery of everything proclaimed in the one everyone’s writing about.
The now infamous …Continue

Air quality and greenhouse gas emissions have improved to 30-year lows. This is due to the increased use of natural gas and industry investment.
There is no doubt about it, the air we are breathing is cleaner than it has been in nearly thirty years. This is not because of government forced regulation or from the onslaught of environmentalists’ pressures, but rather, it is largely in thanks to natural gas.
The United States has been a leader in…Continue

New York can simply not grow without access to natural gas, nor can most areas. The FERC decision addresses this economic reality while others only posture.
With just three months to go, the movie industry is looking at one of its worst years in recent memory. Earlier this month, Jennifer Lawrence’s new release Mother was such a flop that famed critic Rex Reed called it the “worst movie of the century.” It appears that Hollywood is missing 2017’s…Continue

Grounded in Fact helps to dispel the deceitful actions which took place at DAPL protests and lies from anti-pipeline activists that led to a lawsuit.
The five claims that make up the foundation of last year’s Dakota Access pipeline protests are falsehoods. Not “that’s just their opinion” falsehoods; these claims are patently and demonstrably untrue. Yet they continue to thrive in the fertilizer-rich environment of the Internet.
The five fictitious pillars…Continue

Craig Stevens has been everywhere opposing gas drilling, fracking and pipelines, including the Constitution Pipeline, but when it’s his own property…
One of Craig Stevens’ most frequent remarks during his even more frequent appearances where he performs his fractivist schtick is “you probably know my name.” His notoriety is clearly a source of some pride but, let’s face it, it’s well-earned in a sense. Most of us involved in promoting natural gas development do know…Continue

A recent Millennium Pipeline decision slamming New York DEC was a needed move by FERC to protect its Federal jurisdiction but Congress needs to act as well.

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target is producing more renewable energy; however, their energy prices are now the most expensive in the world.
Since the dawn of the shale natural gas revolution, we have watched how quickly energy prices have fallen, how our carbon emissions have dropped, and how our own economy has grown. It has been amazing to watch new technological breakthroughs increase production and reduce operational costs.
Natural gas has, to put…Continue

Bill Shaughnessy fights for what he learned from his Dad and Mom and the people of the Delaware against the DRBC tyrants and their land use power grab.
Its been seven years almost to the day that I was sitting with my dying father, his family at his side, going over the lease we had just received from Hess through an alliance of neighbors known as NWPOA (Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance). It was not exactly a time of celebration, but my father took solace…Continue
