No Hydrofracking in New York State

To be delivered to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, and Governor Andrew Cuomo

Petition Statement

DO NOT allow the gas industry to drill Marcellus Shale in New York State!!!
There are currently 18,989 signatures. NEW goal - We need 20,000 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
