URGENT: Tell Cuomo to keep fracking ban in NY

Below is an email from the Working Families Party of New York, which created a petition at that is getting a lot of attention and may be of interest to people in your area. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear New York MoveOn member,

Yesterday, government bureaucrats gave the go-ahead for Gov. Cuomo to lift the statewide ban on hydrofracking. They want him to keep it banned in some places, like New York City's watershed, but not in others.

We need to keep the ban in place everywhere. If fracking isn't safe enough for New York City, then it shouldn't be safe enough anywhere else in New York either.

(Hydrofracking is a dangerous technique used to extract natural gas from rock formations and is associated with chemical and carcinogenic contamination of drinking water.)

So we created a petition to Governor Andrew Cuomo on that says:

"Governor Cuomo, please do everything in your power to ban hydraulic fracturing throughout New York State. There is no part of the state that should be eligible for fracking. The risks are too great."

Will you sign the petition? Click here to add your name, and then pass it along to your friends:
