The utility (National Grid) has stopped taking new gas customers in parts of Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens where it can’t handle the new demand — because Team Cuomo vetoed the proposed Williams pipeline to bring in supplies from New Jersey.
A few years ago I sat in on a public meeting in my town where the question of natural gas pipeline expansion was being ‘discussed’. It was a perfect example of the reason why the Founding Fathers were against this new nation being a “Democracy”, instead we have a Republic. As long as we can keep it.
I remember a (assumed) town resident sitting in the front row, clad in a ugly sweater and holding a sign with the name “National Grid” with a red circle and slash around it. Every so often she shrieked out the same words “Water not Gas through the pipes!”. ( “Lady I think I know why your burner isn’t working”) I’d love to know what she uses to heat her house and supply her hot water.
New Yorkers voted for Cuomo so in my humble opinion they deserve what they are getting and I hope they get it… good and hard!
