During the next few months New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will be making a decision about allowing hydraulic fracking in the state. After mountaintop removal, this is perhaps one of the most destructive and dangerous practices currently being allowed in our country.
I feel so strongly about this issue that I’ve written a piece about it to try to spread the word about just how horrible a practice this is. If you care about this issue, please read the piece and get involved:
Or, if you are already up on the issue, just skip the article and fill out the Working Families Party petition to Governor Cuomo, urging him to ban fracking in New York State. It will only take a minute of your time, but it could mean of world of difference for the health of New York State:
This is one concrete way that those of us in the Occupy Wall Street Movement can make a difference in the lives of ordinary people who may soon be at the mercy of the insatiably greedy gas industry. If ever there was a moral evil, this sort of environmentally destructive practice is it!
