Synopsis:

DON’T FRACK WITH US! FRACKING-BAN LOOPHOLES. Yes, we have a fracking ban to protect the Delaware River watershed, which extends into New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. That’s because we know that fracking pollutes air, water, and land—and 10 years ago, activists fought to keep it out. Fracking chemicals and wastewater pollute, too! Still, the Delaware River Basin Commission’s proposed new regulations would allow them into what we were led to believe was a protected area. In addition, local water could be exported for fracking outside the river basin. To learn how you can join the fight to protect the watershed and to get some pointers on how to write effective comments join us on Friday, Feb. 11 at 2:30 PM as Tracy Carluccio from the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) and Wes Gillingham from Catskill Mountainkeeper explain what is going on and what input we can have. Tracy is leading the DRN’s efforts to submit comments on this attempt to accommodate corporate interests. Wes coördinates campaigns against extreme energy extraction and, having lived off the electric grid for more than 30 years, is dedicated to pushing New York into a Just Transition away from fossil fuels.
