This is a rather straightforward way to kill a pipeline - or at least a pipeline route. . .
Just in case anyone you know is on the fence, you might want to give them this list:

Despite the ongoing efforts of the sponsors of the Constitution Pipeline to win local support for the project, those efforts have failed in the Town of Davenport. The message is clear: Constitution Pipeline, you are not wanted here.

WHEREFORE, COGC respectfully moves to intervene in the above-styled proceeding and urges the Commission to expeditiously approve the proposed Constitution facilities so that they can be in-service on or before March 31, 2013.

They predicted it would create hundreds of thousands -- even millions -- of jobs. They talked about energy independence, waves of new industry flocking to the area. But today, years into the Marcellus shale boom, the numbers tell a different story.
Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate is now higher than the national average.
The state lost 5,800 jobs last year, ranking 49th in the nation for job creation. The latest government data shows that Marcellus shale development brought about 6,362 jobs annually to the state, which accounts for less than 0.5 percent of the workforce.

The gas drilling operations going on across the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania, and most notably, Bradford and Susquehanna Counties has a direct effect on the Southern Tier of New York. PA Governor Tom Corbett has revamped his DEP which is the counterpart of Andrew Cuomo's DEC in New York. With the NY Governor's decision on hydro-fracking for natural gas just a few short weeks away, we'll take an depth look at what's going on in PA and just how it affects us here in NY. Shocking data from the Clean Air Council, as well as questionable permitting on the part of the DEP of Pennsylvania, make for a very interesting look and bleak outlook should Governor Cuomo accept gas drilling speculation in our state. This read will certainly give you something to take with you to Albany, should you choose to sit down with DEC Commissioner, Joe Martens.
