In fact, U.S. manufacturing has been at the forefront of the nation's economic recovery with strong growth in output and employment, and a large part of the reason is an abundance of low-cost natural gas due to America's shale revolution. Thanks to the power of i [ ... ]

Voice of the Reader: Asthma, fracking link dubious
Posted: July 26th, 2016 | Author: Joint Landowners Coalition of N.Y. Inc.

To the editor: The Southern Illinoisan recently published an Associated Press story on a Johns Hopkins University study that suggests fracking causes asthma attacks. The fact that the AP story was widely reprinted is unfortunate, considering the Chicago-based reporter failed to ask the researchers some important questions. For instance, if fracking has been causing asthma flare-ups in  [ ... ]

The resurgence of fracking in the Marcellus and Utica Shales is on the horizon as new sources of demand are being created for the natural gas. Frustration with low natural gas prices is deep within those rural areas of the Northeast who got a taste of what was possible during the 2008-2012.

Posted: July 11th, 2016 | Author: Joint Landowners Coalition of N.Y. Inc.NY Lawmakers Ask Gov. Cuomo to Ban New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure  Description: Barbara Lifton

  Barbara Lifton is a dangerously stupid person. Dangerous because she happens to be an elected member of the New York State Assembly–representing the ultra-liberal bastion of Ithaca, NY. Lifton has long opposed shale drilling in the state, but her hatred of shale drilling has now spilled over and metastasized into a full-blown, irrational hatred of all fossil fuels. Lifton and 21 ot [ ... ]

Last week Governor Cuomo took his annual river rafting photo-op to the Delaware River to promote tourism. He brought plenty of company on his white water adventure, with over a dozen rafts and canoes filled with staff, state police, ancillary politicians, river guides, and, of course, the press. It was 45 minutes before the last trooper's canoe shoved off and the press went home. The event g [ ... ]

In the latest rebuke of the Obama administration’s expansive view of executive power, a federal judge has struck down the Interior Department’s effort to regulate fracking for oil and natural gas.

Andrew Cuomo sold out his own residents and their property rights to radical leftists by placing an ongoing moratorium on high volume (not low volume) hydraulic fractu [ ... ]

The Atlantic Sunrise pipeline is great news for the rural and urban economies of the Eastern Seaboard region, bringing the benefits of natural gas to both. The reason the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project is so important and should be approved by FERC is the same reason anti-gas forces oppose it; it will strengthen the potential for natural gas development in the rural northeast and it will bolst [ ... ]
