What the hell. Dodging a natural gas outage is great for those employed, but what about the 5000+ families in San Juan County that remain unemployed with no health insurance due to Bill Richardson's Pit Rules and Bill Richardson closing the door to State Assisted Health Insurance?

The State of New Mexico has exactly two coal fired electrical generating plants. Together they produce electricity of Phoenix and other large Metro areas. They produce about seven percent of NM's total electrical generation power. Their entire output is sold out of state. All SJC gets to enjoy is the Air Pollution in ours and our kids lungs everyday. Who's a crackhead now stupid!

There are three coal fired power plants in this loser state. I think you probaly only use about seven % of your brain. The 7 % you talk about is how much of SAN JUAN Unit # 4 the city of farninton owns. Plus the city of farminton owns two gas fired power plants. Before you post do your home work or don't say anythiing you desert rat.

Oh and by the way, the pit rules have not had an impact on drilling, it is the price of gas plus the surplus of it

Gas is pumped out sent across state lines than sold back to NMG at a different price why Farmington has the highest Gasoline prices in the State refined here sent downstate than resold at the highest price here, lived in Illinois were the ratepayers paid for the Nuclear power plants so Com ed could sell on the grid paid and paid never got anything except for when they closed down than got to pay for the mothballing and the waste the wonders of FREE electicity be careful what you wish for when the plants close only the BILLS get bigger

You must have sheared your teeth off, Richardson's Pit Rules increased the price of drilling $225,000 per well, take this off and you will see San Juan County boom again.

It is the hedge funds that are keeping the natural gas prices low, large energy companies have hedged there gas 3-4 years out at $6.50 per mmbtu so they do not care how much they actually sell their gas for - the hedge funds take the loss and are bailed out by Obama with dollars borrowed from China that your children and their children will have to repay with interest. Rich Democrats like Diane Denish and Lujan know this so they bet on the hedge funds loosing money and make $ billions. Meanwhile, 228 more families lost their jobs in December alone - bringing the total unemployed in the Farmington Metro Area to 4953 with the labor force shrinking by 3118 individuals stopped looking for work since Oct 08, add these numbers and you have 8,071 for a real unemployment rate of 14.3%. And this all because of Fat Bill's Pit Rules.

There can be no doubt whatsoever that the Obama administration has deliberately pursued a policy of bankrupting the coal industry by means of crippling EPA regulations. Candidate Obama himself explicitly stated this objective during a January 2008 interview.

“So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can — it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” he stated.

This policy has led not only to new coal plants not being built, but also to existing coal plants being threatened with termination. EPA regulations are forcing power plants out of business across America – leaving the country vulnerable to more enforced blackouts and higher energy prices.

- Back in July 2008, a Superior Court judge in Fulton County blocked the construction of a coal plant in Georgia, citing global warming concerns and the need to limit CO2 emissions.

- In January 2009, the Obama EPA blocked approval for a coal-fired power plant in South Dakota, claiming the state,“didn’t meet requirements under the Clean Air Act in part of its proposed permit for the plant.”

- As Governor of Kansas, Obama’s current Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius slapped a de facto ban on the construction of all new coal-fired plants across the state.

- Last month, Senators in Obama’s home state of Illinois blocked the construction of a clean-burning coal gasification and power generating plant.

- As a result of the EPA’s recent remand of air permits, Shell Oil announced this week that it has “dropped plans to drill in the Arctic waters of the Beaufort Sea this year and will concentrate,” ensuring more shortages and higher prices for Americans.

Last month Dayton Daily News reported that,“The power industry nationwide might have to spend more than $80 billion and retire 45,000 megawatts of coal-fired power plants over several years in adjusting operations to meet current and possible new EPA regulations.”

The shortage of power plants to meet the demands of Texans and other Americans as cold weather grips the country is down to the EPA holding local utility companies hostage and blocking them from building desperately needed new power plants.

Obama’s January greenhouse gas rules restricted the amount of emissions allowable for new power plants, while giving an exemption to General Electric, an intimate financial supporter of his administration.

The Obama administration has crippled US infrastructure and its ability to meet the needs of Americans by declaring war on the coal industry. While smaller independent power plant companies are being squeezed out of existence by EPA rules, transnational giants are busy creating artificial scarcity to jack up prices and eliminate their competition. Indeed, we only have to recall how Enron shut down power plants on false pretenses during the 2001 blackouts in California as a ploy to raise prices to understand how the restriction of energy is used as a political and financial tool of oppression.
