You’ll recall that in June, the House of Representatives voted on H.R.2042 to stall the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, which places a long overdue cap on carbon dioxide emissions from dirty power plants. New York already has these caps in place thanks to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), so the Clean Power Plan applies to all those states without standards that are fouling our air and making New Yorkers sick.

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.

Why would the agency in charge of funding clean water projects vote unanimously to divert $511 million on hand to construct a bridge when, by their own admission, we face an over $36 billion shortfall in clean water funding over the next 20 years?

If you believe New York should be a clean energy leader, and that our government must prioritize the public good over Big Oil and fracker greed, sign onto our comments urging Governor Cuomo to use his soon-to-be-finalized State Energy Plan to fight climate change and move New York away from dirty fossil fuels of the past!

You have made our campaign against Big Oil’s plan to turn NY into a global crude oil transport hub our biggest effort ever! Nearly 3,000 people signed our petition to Governor Cuomo, and just last week we stood with Albany County Executive Dan McCoy

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.
