Promised Land

Everyone knows that fracking poisons the air and water. We wanted to show how it tears apart local communities and subverts democracies and corrupts political leaders and eviscerates all the things that Americans value.  -- Matt Damon

Oneonta FERC Scoping hearing packed to the rafters


It seems that when it comes to most elected officials and area business leaders, willful ignorance is alive and well in Oneonta. We can only hope that FERC got the message that the people who are awake and paying attention DO NOT WANT THE CONSTITUTION PIPELINE.

Mistakes Happen

October 1, 2012, by Jesse O'Donnell


The historical record in regards to the mistakes of the two companies involved in the Constitution Pipeline is among the worst in the oil and gas industry. A simple Google search of the words “Cabot Oil and Gas, mistakes” returns over 36 million search results; and a search for “Williams pipeline mistakes” returns over 44 million search results. These two companies have a lot to answer for. FERC has a huge role in scoping out this pipeline project in such a way that the mistakes of the past are not repeated. EVER.
And yet, before the project even is fully underway…Williams and Cabot have already blundered into the abyss of “Oops!” with Robert V. Riddell Park by using 5 year old maps of the region to map out the requested alternative Route ‘M’.  Williams and Cabot cannot even map a project without making mistakes. What will come when they actually need to weld a pipe? Pour concrete? Drive trucks? Dispose of toxic fluids?

Europe Expects to get U.S. LNG by 2015

by Jesse O'Donnell

Williams stated in their May 2012 presentation to its investors it is looking to overseas markets for LNG or liquefied natural gas. And while Williams has back-peddled some of these remarks in recent public meetings around the Southern Tier of New York, where they hope to install the Constitution Pipeline, recent news from Europe reveals that Williams was right to promise exports to their investors.
