Each and every additional day without shale gas fracking in New York is vitally important. Our state's nearly five-year-long shale fracking moratorium is holding firm because Dr. Shah's secret DOH Review still has not been completed. As a result, no Final SGEIS can be adopted by the Cuomo Administration.
New York continues to avoid the toxic hazards documented in states where shale and oil fracking activities are rapidly expanding, including, but not limited to: PA, OH, WV, CA, WY, CO, AR, TX, ND, SD, ID, MT, NE, KA, LA, OK, MI, NM, WA, KY and TN.
There is no way the fracking genie will be put back into the bottle now. Due to shale fracking, nationwide gas production skyrocketed and caused a market glut which sent prices plummeting. That is promoting even greater use of natural gas. Oil fracking is predicted to make the USA the world’s largest producer in less than a decade.
