New York: Natural gas is better for the environment… but laying pipe would make water murky… so we will just not do anything… so we don’t get locked into a high carbon future.

I get it… so further raise NY taxes to penalize everyone for still using the dirtier fossil fuel and not cutting emissions…. and then run for President…

Though natural gas emits less planet-warming carbon dioxide than other fossil fuels, the pipeline would have been “a step in the wrong direction”, locking the country into a high-carbon future, said Robert Howarth, a professor at Cornell University.
