Stop fracking infrastructure in NY!
Right now, Governor Cuomo and the Department of Conservation are considering regulations that would create a massive infrastructure buildout to transport, store and ultimately export fracked natural gas around the world.
Even worse, the regulations have woefully inadequate safety provisions. New York has already seen just how dangerous liquified natural gas can be — in the 1970s, a massive explosion in a storage facility killed 40 workers in Staten Island. We need to learn from our mistakes and reject any regulations that do not adequately protect our safety.
Take action now and demand that Governor Cuomo and his administration withdraw these regulations from consideration.
