War over natural gas pipelines goes to new level . Habitat Magazine

National Grid is trying to enlist its customers’ support in getting a natural gas pipeline built in New York – an unusual move for a utility and an indication of just how intense the battle over fossil-fuel pipelines has become, Crain’s reports. National Grid is sending notices to some of its customers, warning them that it can’t expand their gas service unless New York State clears a controversial $1 billion pipeline expansion. In May, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) rejected the NESE pipeline because of possible damage to New York City’s waterways. The next day, National Grid announced it would stop processing new applications for all residential and commercial gas hookups. Con Edison had already imposed a moratorium on new gas hookups in parts of Westchester County. The utilities said their moves were driven by New York State’s 2014 ban on fracking and the fact that existing pipelines are operating at full capacity.
In large areas of NY home owners are forced to burn oil or wood for space heating. Heating and wood produce much higher pollution than natural gas and they cost more. The Democrats running NY are either ignorant of they just hate the oil & gas industry so much that they try to block all pipelines.
