New York Governor Andrew Cuomo considers lifting a moratorium on horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing in his state...Landowners hoping to lease to gas-drilling companies and earn royalties on gas production are preparing a lawsuit against the state because of the moratorium.
God, I want clean safe water to drink. I want wildlife to flourish. I want my own impact on your amazing creation to be kept to an absolute minimum. I want to live in harmony with this world. Hear my prayer Lord but know, that's not all that I want.
Truthfully, I want easy access to cheap energy. I want heat. I want electricity for my computer…and my phone…and lots of other things. I want to be able to drive my car without feeling guilty or going broke. I want to take advantage of the conveniences that modern life places at my fingertips everyday.
God, give us the intelligence to satisfy our ever-expanding need to find new sources of energy safely and give each of us the wisdom to power down, unplug, and reduce the demand. Amen.
