Holding my breath/keep slugging


Two additional shale gas articles by Ian Urbina have yet to run in The NYT. I know I am not alone in waiting with bated breath. Should be very shortly. Keep your fingers crossed.

I apologize for the problems with emailing the Governor. The email I earlier provided no longer works. Please use the new email below.

If you bcc'd Toxics Targeting, we will resend your email for you. Thanks for your patience.

The Governor Cuomo Coaltion Letter has reached the 3,000 signatory mark. Keep slugging. Find as many other signatories as feasible:

Keep calling and emailing Governor Andrew Cuomo, EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck and DEC Commissioner Nominee Joseph Martens. Ask them to support:

Expanding the scope of the draft SGEIS to include additional concerns, notably how to manage gas drilling wastewater;

Establishing Citizens and Technical Advisory Committees to help DEC revise the draft SGEIS;

Providing at least 30 days public comment to identify additional issues to be included in the draft SGEIS scope;

Requiring individual EIS reviews for horizontal hydrofracturing permits, "GA effluent limitations" for hydrofracturing, deep well injection and wastewater treatment as well as updating DEC's 1992 GEIS.

Please bcc:

Governor Andrew Cuomo

Judith Enck

DEC Commissioner Nominee Joseph Martens
