New York Post Editorial : The Ridiculous Reason New York Faces a Natural Gas Shortage (Hint: it's 'Enviro-Radicals')

"Enviro-Radicals" is the term used by the New York Post Editorial Board.

The ridiculous reason New York faces a gas shortage

Imagine: The biggest, most important city in America, cut off from new supplies of natural gas vital to its growth. Fact is, such a nightmare could be just a couple of weeks off.

National Grid has warned that unless Gov. Cuomo OKs a new pipeline through the New York Bay by May 15, it may have to turn away new gas customers in Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island. Con Ed has issued a similar warning.

Con Ed already placed a moratorium on new gas hookups in most of Westchester for lack of sufficient pipelines. And despite a recent deal for more gas from an existing line, the soonest that ban might be lifted, it now says, is . . . 2023.

To most sane people, a shortage of a key energy source in a city like New York would be unthinkable. Yet it’s the stated goal of enviro-radicals, who want to end the use of all fossil fuel by tomorrow, if not sooner. Let New Yorkers go without.  

And Cuomo has been doing their bidding by killing new pipeline projects.

Related.  A few of the many quotes are excerpted below.  You are free to verify each and every one of these scaremongering quotes via a simple Google search:

Let's suppose global warming is a hoax (not happening/not caused by man/not bad for the planet or even good…), why would anyone want to spread this hoax?

Here are the answers directly from the head of the IPCC and the UN climate organization, and from environmentalists, scientists, and world leaders who admit that human-caused global warming alarmism is not about the environment, it is about money and power: specifically wealth redistribution, destruction of Capitalism and replacement with global Socialism, globalization of government, scaring people for fundraising and donations, and to get government funding:

...

 

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted at a 2015 news conference in Brussels that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model [Capitalism] that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution," she said. 

...

Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) - The cap-and-trade bill is – “the most significant revenue-generating proposal of our time”. Wash. Post – April 3, 2009

Jacques Chirac of France “Kyoto represents the first component of an authentic global governance.”

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) - “Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory (carbon)” - to combat global warming. Statement in China in 2009

Judi Bari, Principal organizer of Earth First! - "If we don't overthrow capitalism, we don't have a chance of saving the world ecologically. I think it is possible to have an ecologically sound society under socialism. I don't think it is possible under capitalism“

...

Richard Benedick - Deputy Assistant of State, who then headed the policy divisions of the U.S. State Department said: “A global warming treaty [Kyoto] must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the [enhanced] greenhouse effect.”

H.L. Mencken - "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." And, "The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it."

...

Club of Rome -- "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill....All these dangers are caused by human intervention....and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself....believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose."

Daniel Botkin -- emeritus professor: "The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe."

...

Monika Kopacz - atmospheric scientist: "It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians’ — and readers’ — attention. So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today’s world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty."

Christine Stewart - former Canadian Environment Minister: “No matter if the science is all phoney, there are collateral environmental benefits.... climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

Carbon Taxes remind me of the Catholic Church selling indulgences in Europe in the Middle Ages.

Godless environmentalism at the U.N.

Climate change is very, very good for business. It’s been very, very lucrative for the godless environmental crowds — or, make that Environmentalism Is Our God crowds — that like to feign concern for clean air while chugging along congested roads in air conditioned caravans of SUVs, on route to the next rally to demand CO2 emission controls. Billions good, in fact. Not just millions, but billions. The Paris Climate Agreement alone is worth $100 billion from participating nations — and just days ago, in Bonn, Germany, climate conference attendees said another $300 billion is needed to fight for the environmental rights of all in the world.

... 

 

That’s just a tip of Big Green’s money pots.

So of course this latest U.N. report is “stark,” as The New York Times writes.

... 

It has to be “stark.” Too many livelihoods depend on the starkness of the environment, the doom and gloominess of the climate.

Too many opportunities for control depend on the ability of the few to generate fear and fright in the many.

Power hungry elitists of the world learned long ago that environmentalism offered a surefire means of stealing sovereignty and robbing individualism through a mask of altruism. And nobody robs better than the globalists at the United Nations
