Would you like some fossil fuels with your fossil fuels? How about some diesel on the side along with that fracking fluid toxic cocktail? Yes, you read that correctly. I bet you didn’t know that diesel is yet another chemical additive injected into the ground by fracking companies.

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.

Anyone who believes New York is safe from the environmental and public health consequences of fracking is mistaken. Right now, frackers working in other states are dumping their toxic waste inside our borders. Incredibly, a bill that would block this practice was recently voted down in the state Senate’s Environmental Conservation Committee. At a recent hearing our Katherine Nadeau told legislators what they should be doing to address the issue.
