New York Threatens to Spoil Trump's Push for Fossil Fuels

NYC blocks Trump efforts to develop fossil fuelsForget the climate warriors of California. The state best positioned to spoil Donald Trump’s plan to unleash America’s fossil-fuel resources may be New York.

In the past year, New York regulators have blocked two major natural gas pipelines -- a $455 million proposal by National Fuel Gas Co. and a $925 million one from Williams Partners LP -- on the grounds that they pose environmental risks. One bank’s saying investors have no choice but to assign “elevated risk premiums” to energy projects in the state, National Fuel Gas is threatening to take its money elsewhere and Williams’s chief executive officer said Wednesday that he’s in talks with the White House on how the administration can help.

Keystone pipeline defiance triggers further assault on citizens' rights

Keeystone pipeline defence triggers assualts on citizen's rightsBret Clanton might not belong to the most obvious group of opponents to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
