New York City Calls For Ban On Marcellus Drilling

New York City says Marcellus Gas Drilling Too Risky To Fresh Water Supply/ Calls For Ban.

Funny how everyone has to bow to NY City. Nothing like costing the landowners in this region a large potential revenue pool. NY state taxes are out of control and much of it is because of NY City. Maybe they should start worrying about their crime and trash all over that place first and foremost.

Well anything that has to do with NYC drinking water makes them nervous and rightly so. I don't think an all out ban like the city is calling for is necessary, but it would and should definitely be a worry to the city....

what happened to drill baby drill???

its funny when people on here talk about how the drilling will hurt the environment when 95% of you voted for McCan't!

Whats up with that?

Well...as they say...majority rules. As of July 2008 there were over 19 million residents in New York State of which over 15 million live in NY City and its surrounding metropolitan area. So..per capita...they are always going to get there way because they pay more taxes in total than the rest of the state. I guess that if you don't like paying the taxes in New York, you always have the option of moving to Liberia, where there are no taxes.

How reckless, they want to protect their drinking water. Those selfish city folk, they just don't know the facts like we do, huh?

MAYBE WE SHOULD LOOK AT WHAT NYC HAS DONE TO THE DRINKING WATER OF THIS PLANET 15 MIL PEOPLE PRODUCE A LOT OF WASTE BUT THEN THE INDUSTRIAL WASTE ON TOP OF THAT. WOW YOU PEOPLE IN NYC NEED TO SHUT THE HECK UP. THE CITY BURNS A LARGE PORTION OF THE GAS WE ARE FINDING. TELL THEM TO SHUT OFF THERE GAS, AND ELECTRIC SO THE REST OF US CAN LIVE ON WHAT WE HAVE. THEN WE WONT HAVE TO "DRILL BABY DRILL" IF YOU BURN GAS SHUT YOUR MOUTH.

I find it interesting that there are so many people in this area that are all for the drilling despite its potential environmental impact but y'all are against wind farms that have minimal environmental impact. Perhaps its because of the money you will make as opposed the the limited number of people that will make money from the wind farm leases. So, its alright for you to be greedy... but others shouldn't be able to make money from the wind farms.

Its funny that I haven't heard nor seen ANYTHING from our dear friends "Save God's Country" when it comes to the drilling but don't you dare say anything about putting up a wind turbine. Yeah, you can foul up my water but heaven forbid you obscure my view of the drilling rig pocked hill sides. I see how ya are.....

Well Wanda, being that you seem to know everything, how about all the electric that is needed for NY City. Much of that electricity in the near future that will be generated by natural gas being that the coal that has generated much of it is decreasing, not to mention contaminating more water that natural gas ever will. These 15 million people that live in the city don't mind heating their places with heating fuel. Where do they think most of that fule comes from? It is funny how people don't mind benefiting from natural gas but don't want it drilled in their back yard. As far as taxes go, they may generate much of the tax revenue, but they spend far more of NY states taxes than they generate. As far as your Liberia comment, why do people always have to go to the extreme. It doesn't matter anyway because once Obama gets his first (and hopefully his only) four years complete, Libera will seem like a great place to love.

MR know-it-all (anonymous 11:21) This is exactly my point! Yes the millions of people do use the electricity and gas, but just think of what the repercussions would be if those millions of people got sick from drinking contaminated water!! A lot of the water supply for New York city is piped in from the northern part of the state. If i lived in New York, I would be worried too. One of the most prescious natural resources is the water that our bodies need to survive.....yet it is taken for granted by most people that it will always be there. We have to protect our water supply and our air supply....first and foremost. A human being can cut back on heat, gas, and electric, but it is impossible to go without air otr water.

Wanda,

People are not going to cut back on heat, electric or gas. That was displayed last year when gas was $4.00 a gallon and yet people still used the same driving habits they did when gas was $1.50. People in America are not willing to make concessions like you suggest. I agree clean water is crucial to survive and I am all for having clean water, but the other necessities such as heat and electricity are needed also. These will not be affordable or abundant unless natural gas is drilled for. That includes areas like the NY State Watershed.

NY City does not mind producing thousands of tons of garbage each day that needs hauled away to be buried in landfills. They also don't have any problems creating an exorbitant amount of pullutants into the atmosphere. But when it comes to their water, every resident of NY state has to abide. This could result in hundreds or thousands of residents missing out on lease payments or royalties that could be in the millions of dollars.

NY State is in dire straights economically but yet they don't allow companies to drill for gas. NY City or the Governor halting natural gas exploration are creating a large part of the problem, not solving it.

I've talked to some of the people here that are all for the Marcellus wells and I don't think they understand that the Marcellus shale well drilling isn't going to be like the couple of little pipes you see sticking up out of a field and a tank like the other well drilling has been. The fracking requires a pond, a lot more equipment, etc. Look at photos and see that it's very different - more noise, terrible by-products - research it before you sign!

Another uninformed Tree Hugger.
When these wells are completed and put into service,they will be nothing more than "a couple of pipes in the ground and a tank."
(great description!)
A larger area is cleared during the drilling and fracking,but because multiple wells are drilled from the same location,there is less impact than previous types of drilling.Mother Nature(or is that Brother Nature?)reclaims these areas after seeding and planting. What is left is the wellheads and a few tanks just like any other well!
You are the one that needs to research.
