Quit sniveling, you live in a country where over 50% of the "Eligible" voters didn't VOTE.

You get what you deserve, shut up and live with it, or get off your dead butts and Vote.

There is a hearing scheduled Monday at the NM round-house.

'Senator Jeff Bingaman, who chairs the U.S. Senate Energy Committee, said it has raised some questions about the reliability of our natural gas supply.'

No crap, you Democrats decimated drilling in New Mexico and now wonder about our natural gas supply. What about the reliability of the money supply for our children's education, also decimated by your selfish Pit Rules. Natural Gas production in NM has fallen 19%, jobs lost 46,075, since July 08 when Fat Bill initiated the Pit Rules !!!

All the wells in the state would not have fixed the NG pressure problem. As discussed by JavalinaTex in comment #2 on Master Resource http://www.masterresource.org/2011/02/texas-w... , the compressor stations have been shifting from site-generated power to utility power due to air emissions requirements, which is fine by me as long as that power source is reliable. Unfortunately, as the main article relates, ERCOT is an intentional power island.

Interesting fact #1: 20 yrs ago, the South Texas Nuclear Project (SNTP) was unable to supply power during a cold snap, as related here: http://www.chron.com/CDA/archives/archive.mpl... and http://www.chron.com/CDA/archives/archive.mpl... , but SNTP must have fixed their problems because both units 1 and 2 ran at 100% capacity during the recent cold wave, as did Comanche Peak 1 & 2 and Palo Verde 1, 2 & 3.

Interesting Fact #2: At the EPE news conference on Feb 4th http://www.kvia.com/video/26752422/index.html , one of the EPE upper management people pointed out that because EPE's gnerators were not online, it actually mitigated some of the residential NG problems. Of course, if you don't have electricity to your home, it's hard to power the forced air blower in your furnace, even if you use propane like I do.

Interesting fact #3: Reliance on NG to provide electricity, heating (home, business and industrial) and chemical feedstock is very short-sighted. It depends on the assumption that NG is and will be plentiful and cheap. as the NYT reported on Feb 1st, that may not always be the case. http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/02/01/nat ... And if NG prices do spike higher, standby for both higher home heating prices http://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/hist/n3050us3m.htm and higher electricity prices http://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/hist/n3045us3m.htm .

Interesting Fact #4: The same groups that are promoting wind power are also advocating for NG as a "bridge fuel", but against NG drilling. http://drillingsantafe.blogspot.com/ and http://www.sanjuancitizens.org/index.shtml

You are just a drive-by troll, so I'll lead you to the report:

http://nmhealth.org/PHD/OHPCHI/Health%20Counc...

"The Community Health Council for San Juan County (C.H.I.C.), by resolution of the San Juan County Board of Commissioners, serves as the comprehensive community health improvement council for San Juan County. The C.H.I.C. has received formal recognition from the San Juan County Board of Commissioners as the comprehensive health council for San Juan County and will work with County, City, Tribal and State governments on health planning and addressing issues as they relate to the C.H.I.C.'S broad definition of health.

Start reading on page 25, "Chronic Lower Respiratory Disease".
Continue to top of page 26, "Asthma"
Jump to page 28, read everything on this page, especially in regards to ozone, particulate matter, and mercury.

EPA actions to ensure that EVERY coal-fired power plant in the country uses Best Availiable Retrofit Technology are entirely appropriate. Furthermore, the exemption that coal ash has from the RCRA needs to be revoked, so that things like this are stopped: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10350/1109210-...

Or convince greedy coal and oil moguls to step aside and allow alternative forms of renewable energy to take over.

Your eyes are burning from the methane spewing from your mouth. Freeze in the dark, dumas.

Looks to me like having the power plants that are under severe EPA standards running and giving us power is a lot better than every house having and burning their own wood or coal burning stove, and I think a lot of people will be adding that to their houses after this fiasco by the New Mexico Gas Company. As for alternative fuel, great idea, but who can afford it? People have been trying solar for years and it still isn't affordable. Wind power? Who wants those turbines in their back yard.
