Fracking is a proven technology. It has been around since 1950 without any complications.

it’s New York State. Nothing ever happens without a Federal Grant and 3 or 4 lawsuits.

NY is facing deficits and pension shortfalls, they better not come to the Feds with cup in hand for bailout if they have money in the ground and refuse to mine it for revenues.

Hydrocarbon based energy interfers with the PC green energy pusch and the fallacy of “peak oil”. The future is in the City and anything that challenges that assumption is deemed just wrong...people do not need to live outside Metro areas.

The ruling on Tuesday, by Justice Phillip R. Rumsey of State Supreme Court, said that New York municipalities could use their zoning laws to ban oil and natural gas drilling.

One could try to trump local zoning with national energy policy, but the better avenue might be approach this from a landowner perspective. A municipality that prohibits fracking has engaged in a regulatory taking of a development right that is potentially worth very big bucks. Shouldn't landowners be compensated?

If a New York town wants to ban fracking, let it buy out all the rights.

Just wait until the communities around the no fracking areas are prospering from the drilling activity.

Now if the drillers also refuse to do business with anyone in the no fracking areas...

Foolish of the small towns to ban fracking.
Someone will drink their milkshake and they will get nothing.

The liberal politicians see the money from the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania.

The one thing that trumps all liberal ideology is money.

They will drill and they will run over the environmentalists to get their hands on that money.

It is inevitable.
