Joe Biden Signals He’ll Block of All New Pipelines, LNG Plants

We feel as though we keep talking to an empty room. That nobody is hearing, or if people are hearing, they don’t believe what we say when we tell you that Joe Biden and the people surrounding him are promising the total destruction of the fossil fuel industry in the U.S.A.–if he gets elected. All you have to do is listen to what he says! We’re not exaggerating nor overstating the case. If you work for the oil and gas industry, if you sell to the industry, if you care about freedom, you simply cannot vote for Joe Biden for President. To do so is to vote for the destruction of our country as we know it. The stakes are that high! Biden is signaling loud and clear his intent to block all new pipeline and LNG projects if he gets elected.

Antis Demand DRBC Overturn Approval for Delaware River LNG Dock

The ne’er-do-wells from Big Green groups including THE Delaware Riverkeeper, Sierra Club, Food & Water Watch and a mish-mash of other loudmouths are attempting to bully the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) into overturning their previous decision to allow a simple ship dock to get built along the shore of the Delaware River in New Jersey so ships can load LNG already liquefied and waiting. Given the DRBC’s weak leadership, we wonder if the DRBC will (again) cave to the demands of the radicals.

NY PSC Must Decide by Jun 30 How to Handle Coming NYC Gas Shortage

Fossil fuel haters in New York successfully pressured New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reject the Williams Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) pipeline in May (see Cuomo Rejects NESE Pipe Again, Williams Walks Away). And, as we reported two weeks ago, the same antis now insist Cuomo not allow *any* new quantities of natural gas get delivered to the Long Island and New York City vicinity by non-pipeline means (see NYC Green Wackadoodles Meet Online to Oppose New NatGas Supplies). So what happens when gas supplies run out?

PA Supremes Rule Against ME1 Pump Station Permit in Lebanon County

In what is a hollow victory for anti-fossil fuel zealots, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied hearing an appeal for a case from Sunoco Logistics Partners about a permit for a pump station in Lebanon County, PA. The Supremes’ rejection means a lower court ruling stands that overturns the permit. Thing is, that pump station was built years ago and has been functioning ever since. There’s no way that pump station is going away. So why did the antis blow all that money in litigation over the years?

Antis Target PA Speaker Turzai for Airplane Ride Paid by Shale Co.

Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai has been a long-time supporter of the Marcellus Shale industry in the Keystone State. He’s not only an “advocate” for shale energy, he’s devastatingly effective against the shenanigans of anti-fossil fuelers from the Democrat Party. And they hate him for it. Although Turzai previously announced he won’t run for reelection (see Say It Ain’t So! PA House Speaker Mike Turzai is Retiring), antis are trying to sully his sterling reputation even now.

Mass. AG Loses Her Mind – Asks DPU to Study No NatGas Future

Massachusetts produces most (perhaps all) of its electricity from natural gas-fired power plants and some 3.5 million people in the state use it to heat their homes. And yet MA Attorney General Maura Healey (radical leftist Democrat), in what can only be described as a psychotic break, has demanded the state Dept. of Public Utilities “study” how the state can completely phase out the use of all natural gas. Yes, Healey has completely lost her mind!

Obama Judge Overturns Air Permit for Weymouth, MA Compressor Stn

Activist Obamadroid Judge

The radical environmental activism of the dark Obama years continues to live on via our corrupted court system. After years of delays caused by colluding Big Green groups, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) finally green-lighted construction of a compressor station in Weymouth, Mass. late last year (see Stop Press! Enbridge to Begin Construction on Weymouth Compressor). And indeed, construction began in December with antis trying to block it (see 2 Dozen Antis Protest at Weymouth Compressor Site – 4 Arrested). Now a federal judge appointed by Lord Barack Hussein Obama has overturned a state permit for the project, a permit issued nearly a year ago.

Shrill DRBC Tells FERC it has Oversight of PennEast Pipeline Too

Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) Executive Director Steve Tambini is such a disappointment. He has totally caved to the hard-left environmental lobby that has its hooks deeply embedded in the DRBC. On June 1 Tambini sent a letter that’s, well, embarrassing. He sent the letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), telling FERC that the DRBC does have a say in whether or not the PennEast Pipeline can get built–even though not one inch of Phase 1 of the project will traverse DRBC’s jurisdiction.

Radicals Ask FERC to Redo Enviro Review for Atlantic Coast Pipe

A coalition of so-called environmental groups (leftist, very radical organizations) filed an official request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Saturday calling on FERC to conduct a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) for a project that’s already been studied to death: Dominion Energy’s Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). The once $5.5 billion project (now $8 billion because of delays caused by these nefarious groups) will run from West Virginia through Virginia and into North Carolina.

NYC Green Wackadoodles Meet Online to Oppose New NatGas Supplies

New York City and Long Island are starved for new sources of natural gas. Utility giant National Grid supplies all of Long Island with gas, including NYC’s Brooklyn and Queens. National Grid’s best option to supply growing customer demand was a new pipeline. That option is now closed, thanks to Andrew Cuomo (see Cuomo Rejects NESE Pipe Again, Williams Walks Away). National Grid has two options left to get the gas it needs–yet a group of truly insane nutters held a virtual protest meeting last Thursday to object to *any* new supplies of natural gas coming to NYC and LI. They prefer…what? To run out?

Steyer Big Green Group Dumps $200K of Dark Money in SEPA Elections

In a transparent effort to buy local politicians and their votes against fracking, pipelines and for high carbon taxes, a California-based group linked to billionaire Tom Steyer has dumped almost $200,000 of “dark money” into Pennsylvania elections in the Delaware Valley (southeastern PA). Steyer is also attempting to buy candidates in Virginia, Nevada, Michigan, North Carolina and Oregon. In Chester County, Steyer is buying races for three radical Democrats in the upcoming primary…

9th Circus Upholds Obama Judge’s Block of Nationwide Pipe Permits

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (i.e. Cirus), located in California, has struck again. We previously told you about an Obamadroid judge in Montana who illegally blocked the use of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit 12 for oil and natural gas pipelines (see Obama Judge Blocks New Pipe Projects that Use NP12 Permit). The judge’s ruling was appealed to the clowns at the Ninth Circus and they have refused to overturn the Montana judge’s bad ruling.

So-Called “Study” Links PA Fracking to Birth Defect in Horses

A new so-called “study” published in the journal Science of The Total Environment claims it has uncovered a link between fracking chemicals in farm water and a rare birth defect in horses. The researchers say this study “could” serve as a warning about fracking and human infant health. Is this it? Were we wrong for the past 11 years about the safety of fracking? Is this THE END?

Cornell U Capitulates to the Crazies; Divesting from Fossil Fuels

How enormously sad. The Cornell University Board of Trustees has just voted to economically harm the university and its scholarship fund by divesting from all “fossil fuels.” The board has capitulated to the crazies–those who insist on divestment because they believe in the religion of man-made global warming. If you don’t believe, you’re apostate. An unbeliever. A climate infidel. Can’t have that.

CNX CEO Says Pandemic Exposes ‘Church of Climate’ as a Fraud

We have a confession. We have a man crush on Nick DeIuliis, CEO of CNX Resources. Beginning last year DeIuliis began to publicly and openly fight back against global warming zealots who demand you bow before the altar of man-made global warming or risk being ostracized from polite society. The warmists are irrational fossil fuel haters–dedicated to eliminating the use of fossil fuels. DeIuliis has had enough and he now regularly says so in public forums. The latest example of DeIuliis pushing back is a column appearing today in The Hill, the Washington, DC uber-insider publication. DeIuliis says the pandemic has exposed the “church of climate” and the “dog’s breakfast of special interest groups” that compose it, for the fraud it is.

CA & NY Attempt to Block WOTUS Redo from Taking Effect in June

One of the worst overreaches and offenses of the Obamadroids was to redefine what “waters of the United States” (or WOTUS) actually means. As they were getting ready to leave power, the Obama EPA redefined WOTUS as everything down to large mud puddles–no lie (see EPA Power Grab: Redefines Waters of the U.S. to Include Everything). When Donald Trump took over, he set out to correct Obama’s conceit by bringing the WOTUS definition back into the realm of reality. It took years and fending off multiple lawsuits funded by Big Green organizations, but we finally we have a new, permanent redefinition of WOTUS–taking it back to what it was meant to be (see EPA & Army Corps Publish Final WOTUS Regs – Obama Overreach Fixed). The new WOTUS revisions are set to go into effect in late June. A group of radical Attorneys General with Trump Derangement Syndrome are trying to block it.
