Dear Governor Cuomo,

With the DEC announcement that Hydrofracking can be done “safely” and its’ plan to divide New York State into protected and unprotected zones and populations – we urgently appeal to you for a state-wide ban on Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking).

      The hydrofracking process can not be done safely under the current technology and the current institutional regulatory capacity of the state - due to the vast scope of hydrofracking as it is envisioned. In this technological and social context the only moral option is to ban this practice. The sheer quantities, types and geographic reach of the chemicals used in this process, should make this conclusion more then evident.

      To be clear Governor, it is your moral obligation to protect ALL of New Yorkers from this horrid process of shale gas extraction called hydrofracking. It poisons air, water and soil. It has been scientifically proven to produce sever health effects in people and animals. It has categorically been shown to reduce property values and have overall negative affects on local economies.

      Given the complexity of the geology and hydrology in New York State, the “protections” offered to New York City and Syracuse by the DEC may not even exist in actuality. Nevertheless, the fact that the DEC frames their regulations in terms of special carve-outs for these two metropolitan areas is a double standard that we in the rest of New York State, who are in the crosshairs of drilling, find insulting.

      This is your chance to prove that you are on the side of ALL New Yorkers, Governor Cuomo.  Please do the right and just thing: ban hydrofracking in New York.
