New Yorkers Against Fracking
|About The Coalition|
Big oil and gas companies are doing everything they can to open New York up to dirty hydrofracking. Hydrofracking is a new kind of gas drilling that would blast millions of gallons of chemical-filled water into New York’s earth and could poison the water supply for millions of New Yorkers, threatening New York’s air, water, land, and communities.
New studies released regularly link fracking related activities to contaminated groundwater, air pollution, and most recently illness, death and reproductive issues in cows, horses and other wildlife.
That’s why New Yorkers Against Fracking, a new coalition including Food & Water Watch, supports a fracking ban. We are joining together to tell Governor Cuomo and leaders in Albany to stand up for New Yorkers to keep our water and our state safe by banning hydrofracking. Food & Water Watch is proud to be part of this coalition. You and your organization can get involved, too. Endorse New Yorkers Against Fracking.
