You deferred to DOH Commissioner Zucker and DEC Commissioner Martens, but we all know who was responsible for this epic act. So for that, we thank you Governor Cuomo. First, I'm going to thank you on behalf of some people that aren't here to thank you themselves. Our beloved Theo Colborn did not live to see the day, but god knows she would have agreed with Dr. Zucker and she would thank you. Hillary Acton followed you everywhere with her home-made signs, as did thousands of other, but she's … [Read more...] about Thank You Governor Cuomo

Fracking problems down under - this time in South Africa, where the water wells tap shallow aquifers fed by upward moving water that is easily exposed to fracked water and gas released from aging well bores - as described in the report below. The indicator for such upward water movement are thermal and/or mineral springs - water coming up from deeper formations to the surface. Such upward movement can serve as a transport mechanism for fracking … [Read more...] about Fracking New York Mineral Water
The DEC has pulled a Cheney and gone into the bunker on fracking with their defense attorneys - failing to appear at today's Assembly hearing on the proposed fracking regulations. Maybe because they realized that they were about to be sued for their failure to hold a public hearing on the proposed fracking regulations - among other procedural and legal shortcomings. Also absent was the DOH, who is supposedly in the midst of a quicky "health study" to add to their nano HIA from "almost a year … [Read more...] about DEC goes into Fracking Bunker !
The history of the frack ban movement has yet to be written - until now. (How's that for a pretentious opening ?) The first New York frack ban ordinance was written by a retired Virginia judge. The first four New York frack bans were inspired by a white paper written by a Florida real estate developer. The first regional conference on frack bans was co-sponsored by a Belgium beer company (not Gazprom) The first petition for a town ban was written by a New Jersey real estate … [Read more...] about The (Real) History of New York State Frack Bans

Probably not entirely. But certainly not worth risking. When the people doing the fracking are a bunch of frackers . . . Is New York’s Shale Worthless? On January 16th, 2014, the New York Society for Ethical Culture and a host of local electeds, plus community and environmental groups presented a panel of experts who had examined the well data coming out of Pennsylvania, and compared it to the geology. How deep was the shale? How thick? And how much gas did it produce? And how would that … [Read more...] about Is New York’s Shale Worthless ?
Is New York's shale worthless? Pennsylvania's gas wells produce best where the shale is deepest and thickest. But New York's shale is thin and shallow. Does this mean a future of wildcat drillers and low royalties combined with damage from frack waste, compressor stations, and pipelines (or as one analyst put it, "a hangover without the night on the town")? Below the event description, we discuss these questions and some of the reactions this controversial theory has … [Read more...] about Is New York Shale Worthless ?

(54) New York Shale Gas Potential: How Does it Compare to Pennsylvania? New York Shale Gas Potential: How Does it Compare to Pennsylvania? What can New Yorkers expect if high-volume hydrofracking is permitted here? Analysis of 2700 Pennsylvania gas wells shows that the highest yields are where shale is deepest and thickest. But the Marcellus shale gets thinner … [Read more...] about Shale Gas Mythbusters Coming to Central Park !
By casinos. Surprise ! And the geology of the area. Not such a surprise ! And New York's new Mayor Elect who is not likely to be a complete fracking shill like that other guy. Thanks in advance, Mayor ! Casino traffic and frack truck convoys don't mix. And the casino lobby will make sure who wins that argument in Albany. Local frak flaks like Karen Moreau and Brad Gill won't be able to get a lie in edgewise. Wherever there is a casino, there will be no fracking. Wherever there is a road … [Read more...] about CATSKILLS SAVED FROM FRACKING !
