Cuomo Bans Fracking Is It Science Or Green Hostage Taking

The governor of New York has just banned fracking in his state
While the EPA nationwide relentlessly forces coal producers to abate
The Greens in New York of course cheer
While loss of energy business fears
We sadly in the energy world live in an inverted Texas two step
It’s two or three steps back for one forward a movement we will regret
National gas production gives us a real chance
For our energy production to really advance
Natural gas carbon emissions are pretty, pretty low
When the arctic vortex hits New York and slams it with feet upon feet of snow
And the residents are shivering as the cold winds howl and blow
Science on fracking is not running the environmental show
It will be interesting to subject the supposed dangers of fracking
To some careful scientific examination which appears to be lacking
Maybe to get out of the governor’s office some sense
The producers of natural gas should surround New York with a boycott fence
