Below is an email from Matthew DeSanctis, a MoveOn member in New York who created a petition on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.
Dear New York MoveOn member,
Hydrofracking will destroy New York's abundance of fresh water. Bottom line: this is our water.
50% of cement casings in these oil wells fail within 30 years of use, releasing hundreds of neurotoxins, plastics, natural gas, and other chemicals into our water.
We should not allow the gas industry to frack in New York. Studies must be conducted to prove these drill rigs will be safe forever—not just for a few years.
That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to the New York State House, Senate, and Governor Andrew Cuomo, which says:
Do not allow the gas industry to drill the Marcellus Shale in New York State!
