A new poll shows that the people who would be impacted by fracking – residents of the Southern Tier and Hudson Valley – strongly oppose it. Despite the industry funneling millions into bullying New York into drilling, the results aren’t even close: 51 to 35.

The fracking industry has deep pockets. In the last few years, they have spent millions attempting to bully and coerce New York into fracking before any of us are the wiser about fracking’s true dangers and impacts.
But in a state known for political scandal, somehow, frackers haven’t gotten their way. Their failure can be explained, in part, by their highly offensive personal attacks on people who dare express concerns about fracking’s true impacts.

In my 20s I had a type, and he liked B List horror movies. I can’t explain it, and I won’t try. Sometimes we just have to accept these things.
As a result I’ve seen (read: endured) my fair share of zombie flicks. There’s only one I would ever want to see again (Disclaimer: this is an R-rated zombie clip resplendent with fake blood and guts, harsh language, and Queen).

This canard is one of the most ridiculous and offensive myths pushed in public policy circles in recent memory.
Most New Yorkers recognize that being concerned about our environment, the quality of our water, and the health of our families does not equate to disdain for people having jobs. However, the fracking industry’s multi-million dollar propaganda machine has created a fear within the halls of state government for legislators afraid to look anti-job to their constituents.
