Tell Governor Paterson & NYS Lawmakers: Just Say "No" to Fracking
|The comment period on New York’s draft natural gas drilling guide will soon come to a close. But before you send your detailed comments on the draft to the State’s Department of Environmental Conservation, please tell Governor Paterson and state lawmakers to just say “no” to fracking for natural gas.|
Natural gas companies are eager to drill in the Marcellus Shale Formation, which includes the Southern Tier and Catskills regions. Click here to tell the Governor and lawmakers in the State Capital to protect New York from the dangers of natural gas drilling unless there are safeguards in place to protect our air, land and water.
The Governor has already given the green light to natural gas companies, but before the fracking begins, New York State lawmakers must pass legislation that creates strict rules and regulations to guide drilling in every part of the state, not the permit-by-permit approach proposed by the Department of Environmental Conservation.
New York State also needs the boots on the ground to inspect the drilling sites and make 100% sure that fracking doesn’t poison our waterways or pollute our landscapes.
Click here to tell the Governor and state lawmakers to just say “no” to fracking for natural gas until New York is prepared to protect the health of our environment and the public.
In other parts of the country, fracking for natural gas has spilled toxic chemicals into waterways and landscapes. We need to protect New York from the dangers of industrial drilling.
