New York State is so screwed. Let’s just be honest–there’s no saving the Empire State now. (We can say these things because we live here.) Following the passage of a recent law (see New York Pulls the Trigger, Commits Energy Suicide with New Law), businesses and residents are beginning to move out of the state. Why? Because in the coming years the state will either outlaw the energy they need to use, or make it so expensive they’ll go bankrupt. One example: Everyone in NY who uses a furnace for winter heating–whether that furnace uses fuel oil, natural gas, or propane–will have to dump that furnace and switch to a heat pump or electricity…in the next 20 years. The new law just passed is, quite literally, stark…raving…mad.
