Now Is The Time To Do Somethin’

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation is considering allowing gas drilling and development in the shale formations that sit directly below the watershed that is to the west of the Hudson River. Unfortunately, a review of the draft scope (pdf) shows that such a drilling process would have serious environmental impact — from air, noise, and visual impacts to greenhouse emissions of all the trucks and equipment to the use of more than 1 million gallons per well of fresh local surface water (piped in from local NYS lakes and rivers).

Please take action before December 15th:


Energy and Water: Wealth Redistribution or a Deadly Combination for Upstate New York and New York City?

Who let the HydroFracturing Out of the Safe Drinking Water Act?

Gas Leases: just like Stealin’ a NYC Public Library Branch or two; lo’ money, no approval and blasted conversation
