This New York Post editorial, by John Krohn of Energy In Depth, cuts through the rhetoric and explains why the state’s continued delay in allowing natural gas development using high volume hydraulic fracturing to go forward hurts Upstate New York.

He writes:

The unemployment rate in Elmira rose from 8.8 percent in January 2012 to 10.5 percent last month; Tioga County’s unemployment rate now registers at 10.3 percent, Chemung County’s at 10.5 percent and Steuben County at 11.9 percent.

New York is “open for business”?  Sadly, we are not.
