Greetings,

Once again, I am immensely pleased to commend everyone involved with this campaign for their hard work and incredibly successful efforts to safeguard New York from shale fracking hazards for going on seven years. That organizing achievement is simply mind-boggling. Thank you for all of your assistance.

Cuomo foes dog him on fracking

ALBANY – Plenty has changed since Gov. Andrew Cuomo took office nearly four years ago.

Same-sex marriage has been legalized. Local property-tax increases have been capped. Income-tax brackets have been tweaked. Tougher gun-control measures are in place.

The gas-rich Marcellus Shale, however, is the same as it ever was in New York.

Auburn reinstates ban on accepting gas drilling wastewater

AUBURN | For the second time in four years, Auburn officials have banned the city's waste water treatment plant from accepting water produced as a byproduct of natural gas drilling.

Members of the Auburn City Council re-instituted the ban during Thursday night's meeting by a 4-1 vote. The results were met with a round of applause from a handful of spectators at Auburn City Hall.

Plan of Action Until Election Day/More Amazingly Powerful Letters Sent to Andrew Cuomo/Prominent Fractivists Respectfully Write Green Groups

Greetings,

Congratulations on yet another day without even one fracked shale gas production well anywhere in New York.

As you will see from the Primary Election clips below, we succeeded beyond all expectations in making Marcellus Shale fracking a critical reelection issue for Andrew Cuomo. Fractivists are repeatedly credited with playing a key role in helping Zephyr Teachout win an unprecedented share of Gubernatorial Primary votes.

I write today to outline how we can use that achievement to our best advantage in the weeks to come.

Pegula's riches come from fracking, not allowed in NY

ALBANY – During a campaign stop Wednesday in Buffalo, Gov. Andrew Cuomo heaped praise on Terry Pegula.

And with good reason: Pegula and his wife, Kim, had just reached a tentative $1.4 billion deal to buy the Buffalo Bills and keep the football team in western New York.

Thank You and Congratulations on Yet Another Historic Fractivist Day

Greetings,

Before all is said and done by the end of this extraordinarily important day, I want to commend all the Fractivists who worked so hard on behalf of this campaign during the last few weeks, recent months and nearly five long years.

Your unstinting efforts have collectively achieved yet another high-point in our drive to keep New York safe from Marcellus Shale fracking hazards. Thank you so much.

Dear Governor Cuomo:

I have the honor of presenting a coalition letter with more than 1,500 signatories which respectfully requests that you withdraw the Marcellus Shale Draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) because it is nearly five years old, lacks any current information whatsoever and would inadequately protect New York from fracking hazards.

WNBF Interview 7/7/2014 with Walter Hang Re: Letter to Gov. Cuomo asking for withdrawal of SGEIS

Fracking foes: Gov. Cuomo can’t rely on ‘ancient’ data to decide fate of Marcellus Shale in N.Y.

A coalition of groups opposed to hydraulic fracturing in New York held a news conference in Binghamton on Monday to call on the state to withdraw a six-years-in-the-making environmental review.
