Schumer preens about, so full of himself that Texas is in a bad place due to the severe cold that caused the energy crisis this past week. Be careful Chuck. You and your pal Cuomo have put New York in the same boat for a potential disaster. New York and other New England States dependent on Russia for energy.
An excellent example of just what has been allowed to happen that puts Americans at risk by a few nitwits.
Even the Boston Globe opined that “Massachusetts’ reliance on imported gas from one of the world’s most threatened places is also a severe indictment of the state’s inward-looking environmental and climate policies.”
Previous posts on the situation in New York, the latest from the eco-terrorists:
For eight years, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has capitulated to the eco-left. From preventing the construction of needed pipelines to banning fracking, he has implemented an extreme environmentalist agenda.
Now, the consequences of those decisions are hitting New York residents hard.
Earlier, it was reported how New York is facing shortages of natural gas, even though it has plentiful shale reserves and shares a border with Pennsylvania, a state that also has shale reserves. As the Wall Street Journal noted, “The reason for the shortage is obvious: The Cuomo administration has repeatedly blocked or delayed new pipeline projects. As a Con Ed spokesman put it, there is a ‘lot of natural gas around the country, but getting it to New York has been the strain.’”
It seems New York has a partial solution – import liquefied natural gas from Russia.
That’s right, instead of permitting pipelines and fracking to get access to domestic natural gas, New York is importing energy from across the world – and from a geopolitical rival to boot.
Chuck DeVore, Vice President of the Texas Public Policy Foundation explains, “And, while Gov. Cuomo continues to obstruct new pipelines, generating political goodwill from some, his state’s policies, combined with a 99-year-old law that bans foreign vessels from shipping cargo between U.S. ports, result in the importation of liquified natural gas (LNG) from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago—rather than Pennsylvania or Texas.”
Moratorium on New Yorkers getting more hookups to energy.
The New York Post says lawmakers are confused by Cuomo’s claim they get to decide on the Williams pipeline. In an editorial, the Wall Street Journal says Cuomo blocking the pipeline and then blaming National Grid for the moratorium is “another parable of how the political campaign to ban fossil fuels is detached from energy and economic reality.”
Yes… this is how it works New Yorkers:
“To add additional service would pose a risk to the integrity of our system and compromise natural gas use for our existing 1.8 million customers in New York City and on Long Island,” said Karen Young, the National Grid spokesperson. The result is that, while existing customers are unaffected, those attempting to get a new hookup are denied new service.
Guess how this will end. Let’s connect these dots. One doesn’t need to be a Mensa candidate.
