More Terrific News Coverage For Our Campaign to Prohibit All Forms of Shale Fracking in New York, Especially Carbon Dioxide Fracking Proposed Throughout the Southern Tier

Please become a signatory to our: Request That Governor Hochul Prohibit All Forms of High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Combined With Horizontal Drilling in New York In Order to Prevent Carbon Dioxide Marcellus Shale Natural Gas Extraction

Check out New York's shocking failure to protect public health and the environment from oil and natural gas extraction hazards. It would be irresponsible for Governor Hochul to permit carbon dioxide shale fracking using inadequate regulatory safeguards adopted circa 1992 that the State does not enforce.

44 New York Natural Gas and Oil Extraction Problems That Reportedly Were Associated With Fires, Explosions, Drinking Water Contamination, Wetland Pollution or Uncontrolled Environmental Discharges Between 2011 - 2023 and Were Never Cleaned Up in Strict Compliance With All Applicable Regulatory Requirements According to State Department of Environmental Conservation Spill Records

Our New Campaign to Prohibit Carbon Dioxide Shale Fracking in New York is off to an incredible start. Thanks so much.

Happy New Year Fracktivists,

I am pleased to alert you that National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate station WSKG recently covered our efforts to prohibit Carbon Dioxide Shale Fracking proposed in the Southern Tier as well as all forms of High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing in New York combined with horizontal drilling. Thanks to Phoebe Taylor-Vuolo for her reporting.

Our new campaign has received extensive radio, TV and front-page news coverage. We are taking highly organized research, advocacy and organizing action to keep New York 100% free of all forms of shale fracking. We are focusing intense pressure on Governor Hochul that we aim to crank up until she fulfills our coalition letter request.

New York's Hydrofracking Prohibition Has a Giant Non-Water Fracking Loophole That Must be Immediately Closed

Our hard work is critically important because the State Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) hydrofracking prohibition involving 300,000 or more gallons of water does not prevent non-water Carbon Dioxide Marcellus Shale fracking from being permitted pursuant to 1992 Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) regulatory requirements.

This must not be allowed because DEC specifically determined circa 2008 that these outmoded regulations could not safeguard New York from shale fracking. That is why a Supplemental GEIS was required that ultimately determined Carbon Dioxide shale fracking and all other forms of non-water shale fracking must not be permitted anywhere in New York. Unless we require Governor Hochul to enforce this key regulatory determination, New York's Marcellus Shale can be fracked.

I invite you to watch me explain and document this complicated regulatory scenario: Walter Hang's 12/12/23 News Conference to Announce a Campaign to Prohibit Carbon Dioxide Shale Fracking in New York

Please call and keep calling Governor Hochul at 518 474 8390 to echo our specific request word-for-word:

"I request that Governor Hochul immediately prohibit all forms of Marcellus Shale High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing, including using carbon dioxide or other non-water fracking methods, combined with horizontal, directional or vertical drilling."
