Natgas Customer Moratorium Killing Ithaca Suburb of Lansing, NY

Hey Westchester County, NY: You have a model to look at for your own moratorium on (blocking of) new natural gas customers. It’s located upstate, in Lansing, NY, just outside of college town Ithaca. The local utility (NYSEG) wanted to build a short pipeline in 2017 to supply new customers with natgas, but was blocked by crazies who irrationally hate fossil fuels (see Lansing NY Officials Fight Back Against Tinfoil Hat Fossil Fuel Haters). Since that time the pipeline did not get built, and businesses and homeowners who wanted to build in the town have gone elsewhere. There’s the unmistakable stench of economic death in the air. That’s the cheery future that awaits you, Westchester.
