July 1, 2014

To The Reader’s Forum: As a concerned grandfather, father, husband, landowner, and taxpayer, I have dedicated myself to study and learn as much about gas and oil, extraction, and fracking....

From the US Energy Information Agency Pounds of CO2 produced per million BTU Coal over 200, Diesel 161, Gasoline 157, Propane 139, Natural Gas 117. Natural gas is the cleanest of the major fossil fuels but 117 pounds of CO2 is not the same as zero pounds. The Post Journal has a obligation (Truth Above All Else) to not mislead its readers.

" I have read about concerning CNG, show that when set up properly is 100 percent efficient and leaves nothing but H2O in the atmosphere."

What happens to the carbon when natural gas is burned? I agree with much of what you said but you undermine your credibility when you make a false statements. If you have a process that makes the carbon disappear that would be Noble prize winning news, but if you do not you are only showing you do not have the most basic understanding of science.

Fracking in NYS, I have a feeling, is not going to happen. The bottom line...there are many other places these energy companies can go and get it done at a lower cost. Setting up infrastructure in NY, even if the ban is lifted, will likely be too costly.

We will, however, have to deal with the effects of it. Waste transportation and disposal from PA is already having an effect on Chautauqua county. So we will deal with negatives without actually benefitting from the positive economic boost of producing the gas here.

The key to understanding this perspective about how Fracking is completely benign Is the word LANDOWNER. I do feel that landowners should have a right to profit from the ownership of mineral rights on their property but at what cost to the quality of life of other people. Horizontal Fracking, and the storage of it's toxic wastes affects everyone around the landowner. Until they can guarantee complete safety, especially waste removal and storage, we should be cautious. This is the only thing NY State seems to be doing right.
