This written notice by the Dryden's Safe Energy Coalition to the Town Board of Dryden should serve as resounding response to the Ban Natural Gas movement. It raises many interesting points but my personal favorite is this:
"The Town should take notice that a ban is inconsistent with environmental advocates’ position favoring the development of natural gas under the Kyoto protocols. It is also inconsistent for the Town and individuals to use energy from elsewhere while refusing to allow its regulated development locally."
To see what oil and gas development looks like else where, take a look at some of the pictures that show exactly what bad regulations look like. We need to take ownership for our consumption.
