Last Three Workshops to Stop Hydrofracking

We are holding three last workshops to create effective letters commenting on the problems in the DEC's proposed hydrofracking regulations under which hydrofracking could occur in New York State, as early as next year.

The workshops are:
  • Friday, December 16 from 5-7 pm

  • Saturday, December 17, from 3-5 pm

  • Tuesday, January 3 from 3-5 pm
Please help publicize these last workshops by forwarding this information to others on your squad, friends, neighbors, etc. The workshops are open to everyone: coop members and non-members alike.

You don't have to stay for the whole time—just stop by for awhile and write an effective letter to the DEC. It will be mailed for you (no procrastination!)

Governor Cuomo and the DEC seem unmoved by the facts about hydrofracking. See the recent news articles "EPA Sounds Alarm on Fracking in Wyoming" and E.P.A. Links Tainted Water in Wyoming to Hydraulic Fracturing for Natural Gas and Some Blame Hydraulic Fracturing for EarthQuake Epidemic.

Your small time commitment will make a difference—let's protect New York's drinking water and our health from hydrofracking.
