Slowing Down the DEC on the
Fast Track to Frack New York State
Governor Cuomo and the Department of Environmental Conservation are putting the Energy Industry on a fast track to frack New York State.
Why the hurry?
The NYS DEC recently issued a Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) which, if accepted, will allow hydro-fracking to begin. We have until December 12 to send comments to the DEC. The Environmental Committee is organizing a series of workshops to provide guidance for writing an effective letter to The DEC commenting on
Individual letters make a difference--the DEC is required to read every one, whereas form letters are merely counted.
We will help you complete a letter at the workshop and mail it for you.
Stop by at any point during one of the workshop sessions:
Saturday, 10/15: 1-3pm
Saturday, 10/22: 10am-2pm
Sunday, 11/06: 12-2 pm
Saturday, 11/19: 2-4 pm
Bring friends—coop members and non-members are welcome!
