Thank you/Our Biggest Challenge Looms Directly Ahead

Please Donate to Toxics Targeting's Award-Winning Marcellus Shale Campaign:


I write to thank each and every person who has contributed generously to support the New York Marcellus Shale Campaign.

Toxics Targeting's incomparable team of Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists, cartographers, data analysts and policy advocates has worked virtually 24/7 for more than five years to safeguard our state from shale fracking harm. The success of our efforts totally depends on the amazing support which Fractivists provide.

We have collectively played a critical role in extending New York's shale fracking moratorium against seemingly insurmountable odds. Our strategy of systematically preventing adoption of a Final Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) has survived every challenge so far. As a result, not one shale gas production well has ever been fracked in New York.

For two years, we have similarly thwarted completion of the infamous Department of Health "review" that must be finished before a Final SGEIS can be adopted.

Thank you so much for making those incredible achievements possible. With your help, there is zero natural gas production from Marcellus Shale fracking in New York.

Despite those impressive accomplishments, we will have to fight harder and smarter than ever in the weeks to come.

Governor Cuomo promised that his DOH "review" should be completed by the end of the year. If that happens, a Final Draft SGEIS could be adopted without further revision, and New York could share the fate of more than half the states in the nation where shale fracking is already underway.

I will be in touch shortly to spell out what you can do next. Please plan to attend Governor Cuomo's State of the State address in Albany on January 7, 2015.

In closing, thank you, again, for your invaluable support. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. I would be happy to speak with you.

Every contribution is deeply appreciated and goes a really long way:

Happy Holidays and very best wishes.

Onward and upward,

Walter Hang
