NYRAD Emergency Action Alert

  1. 1. NYRAD EMERGENCY ACTION ALERT!!!You have been part of an unprecedented successful campaign over the past4 years that has protected our air, water and health by keeping high volume horizontal hydrofracking out of New York State. Governor Cuomo says a decision to allow Marcellus Shale horizontal hydrofracking might be made in as little as 8 short weeks!!! The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which has two seats on the Governor’s Gas Advisory Panel has suggested 2 disturbing alternative actions: 1) – A “Demonstration Project in which up to 300 wells could be drilled in 3 years 2) – A “Special Places Off Limits to Drilling” that would protect NYC, Syracuse, Catskills, Fingerlakes, Delaware River Water Gap and Cooperstown Corridor BUT NOT PROTECT THE SOUTHERN TIER. 1. Tell them you want them to join with the grassroots and publicly declare opposition to ANY Demonstration project, anywhere in NYS, in an open letter to Governor Cuomo.2. Request that they sign the Defacto Moratorium Pledge. Accept No Excuses: Tell them that ifthey are truly interested in protecting us there is no reason for them to NOT sign the pledge!!!
  2. 2. The de facto moratorium pledge: Given the irreparable harm that shale gas extraction could wreak on New Yorks environment and public health, I request that Governor Cuomo maintain DECs de facto moratorium on Marcellus Shale horizontal hydrofracturing until there is a consensus among all local, state and federal authorities as well as potentially impacted parties that the 17 major shortcomings documented in the Withdraw the Revised Draft SGEIS Coalition Letter have been fully resolved.
