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.

One of our major campaigns in 2013 was to get the NY-Sun Initiative, which helps get climate-friendly solar developments up and running, secured for another 10 years. Thousands of our members contacted Governor Cuomo, and he’s made it happen! You deserve a big hand for helping us notch this important victory for cleaner, healthier energy – thank you!

We’ve sounded the alarm on a reckless plan state Senators have proposed to roll back thousands of hard-fought public health and environmental protections in what’s a clear giveaway to special interests.
