One More Day to Act: Gas Drilling May Begin in New York Soon

It's down to the final wire for public comments on the proposed regulations to allow for industrial gas drilling and fracking in New York.

Continued from previous page


Wes Gillingham: My name is Wes Gillingham, from Catskill Mountainkeeper. We've been doing this for three years. It's time to pay attention to the science, not have it be a political process; realize the science is there to say drilling is not safe. Governor Cuomo is pushing this forward way too fast. This is not good for New York; it's not good for us; it's not good for our children.

Artel: From the kitchen table, out on the road, I'm Sabrina Artel.
