Three Months is Not Enough!
Last week the New York State DEC released the complete Revised Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on hydraulic fracturing. Although the entire document runs to over 1,500 pages, the Cuomo Adminstration insists that scientists, the medical community and the general public will have only three months to read, analyze and submit written comments on a plan that could contaminate drinking water supplies, endanger public health, destroy local economies, and put the taxpayers on the hook for millions in environmental clean up costs.
It is essential that each and every one of us generate unique, substantive comments on the Draft that the DEC will be required to read and address as it prepares the final version of the SGEIS. These comments will be our last chance to minimize the dangers posed by a fatally flawed plan. The website 2011 SGEIS Flaws(NY) , is an open source database that analyzes each and every aspect of the Draft; we urge you to use it as a resource and to post material of your own that will be of use to others.

Two out of three people who find out about fracking think the risks aren’t worth the rewards.
