NEWSFLASH: New York’s Ban on Fracking is FINAL

NewYorkersagainstFracking

“In the end, there are no feasible or prudent alternatives that would adequately avoid or minimize adverse environmental impacts and that address the scientific uncertainties and risks to public health from this activity. The Department’s chosen alternative to prohibit high-volume hydraulic fracturing is the best alternative based on the balance between protection of the environment and public health and economic and social considerations.”

~ NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joseph Martens, in his June 2015 DEC Findings Statement issued 6/29/15

This is a landmark victory for the earth, for all the species that walk, fly, swim, and crawl upon it, for science, for sanity, and for dedicated anti-fracking activists and their allies in government all over the world. It comes as a result of seven years of dedicated NY State activism on behalf of people and planet. BCJN celebrates, and supports ongoing efforts to rid New York State of ALL fracking infrastructure and support systems. To get involved in that struggle, watch for action recommended by BCJN friend and ally Sane Energy Project.
