500th Post...Help NRDC Keep FRACKING Out of Catskill Park!

Companies Like Chesapeake Energy Want to Destroy This
Seems somehow appropriate that our 500th post deals with the dangerous practice of Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing, and keeping it out of our state parks.  Visit NRDC's page on this important topic and take the time to tell Governor Cuomo and the NYDEC that you do not want them allowing the (un)Natural Gas industry to begin drilling inside the Catskill Park, which is one of the oldest parks in America.


Help Keep Fracking Out of the Catskill Park!

Governor Cuomo and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) are poised to let energy giants drill for natural gas on private lands inside the Catskill Park using the environmentally destructive practice of "fracking." Opening up this spectacular BioGem to drilling could despoil one of our nation’s first parks and threaten the drinking water of millions throughout the state.

Tell Governor Cuomo and the DEC to block oil and gas companies from fracking inside the Catskill Park and to protect this wilderness treasure that belongs to all New Yorkers.
