The Lie of Local Energy

Local MD Niziol has posted to the Dryden Safe Energy site bemoaning the immorality of a ban on "local energy."

What makes him think that the energy is for local use? Have the gas drillers promised that to the town? Not that I know of. Are the pipelines limited to the town? Not that I know of.

Chesapeake/Anschutz are gas exporters. I believe in local energy; that's why we've gone somewhat off the grid and are heating from our own below ground warm earth. But I see no proof that gas drilling in upstate NY has anything whatsoever to do with local energy. Sorry, Dr. N.
