Hydrofracking will destroy New York's abundance of fresh water. Bottom line: this is our WATER.
50% of cement casings in these gas wells FAIL within 30 years of use, releasing hundreds of neurotoxins, plastics, natural gas, and other chemicals into our WATER.
DO NOT allow the gas industry to drill in New York.
What's at stake here is much more important than profit. These rigs must be safe for use forever otherwise they put our water in immediate danger of being undrinkable; and as of right now, they're clearly not safe.
