Fracking halted in New York State! From a post on Facebook...



Seismologik Intelligence

Congratulations NY, Governor Cuomo has put a halt on FRACKING in New York State. This would not have happened without the hard work and dedication of all the many groups, activists, organizers and concerned citizens who stood up and spoke out against the fossil fuel industry. Next up: NO TO TAR SANDS. #ForwardonClimate! We will see you in Washington D.C!

5. not that simple unfortunately... Cuomo certainly has not done shit. he is a chicken shit

Statement from DEC Commissioner Joseph Martens
"""
Commissioner Shah advised me today that the Public Health Review of the Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) of high-volume hydraulic fracturing is still on-going.

The Department of Health’s (DOH) Public Health Review, which was undertaken at my request, is important to our consideration of high-volume hydraulic fracturing and I will not issue a final SGEIS until that review is complete and I have received Dr. Shah’s recommendations. He has indicated he expects his review to be complete in a few weeks after he has had an opportunity to review recent studies underway which are pertinent to the evaluation of high-volume hydraulic fracturing impacts on public health.

The previously proposed high-volume hydraulic fracturing regulations cannot be finalized until the SGEIS is complete. However, this does not mean that the issuance of permits for high-volume hydraulic fracturing would be delayed. If the DOH Public Health Review finds that the SGEIS has adequately addressed health concerns, and I adopt the SGEIS on that basis, DEC can accept and process high-volume hydraulic fracturing permit applications 10 days after issuance of the SGEIS. The regulations simply codify the program requirements.

If, on the other hand, the DOH review finds that there is a public health concern that has not been assessed in the SGEIS or properly mitigated, we would not proceed, as I have stated in the past.

In either event, the science, not emotion, will determine the outcome.

I added quotes to make it clear that Martens wrote everything above - Agony

7. Science SHOULD determine the outcome. There is plenty of evidence there.

This does not mean that we should not be excited about the possibility of shutting that awful industry down.

10. Yes, I didn't write that...Martens did. but his lips are just flapping...

These politicians are so corrupt that they will ignore process in order to bulldoze ahead.

http://nyfrackingscandal.com

"Science SHOULD determine the outcome." YES it should. <---I wrote that.
OTOH emotion is what makes us human, what makes us care that our children should not be left with a ruined poisoned community.

I will fight anyone who says that emotion should not be a part of how any issue important to humans is decided.

There is much to be excited about! stopping fracking comes down to stalling until a plurality of people are paying attention...

we are moving in that direction day by day, person by person, town by town... ...

Cheers,
Agony

16. This is a false flag option, the gas companies are waiting to get a pipeline

built from Penn. gas fields through upstate NY to a connecter line just west of Albany which runs downstate to L.I. and over to Conn.

The gas companies have pushed for fracking rulings and got everybody upset while they sneak pass county planning boards rights of way and promise great riches to the locals.

They are about 1/2 way across NY, it will take another yr for all the permits. By then they will be ready to frack and all the local opposition will be burned out and Como and NY EvDept will lift the ban and production will start from 1 to 21/2 yrs.

I like to think I'll be as brave when the issue hits NC....not that our ReTHUG-dominated gov't would give a damn.

25. Are you sure this is true?

After all, we've been assured in another thread that constant pestering of Obama and Dem leadership had no relationship to their taking raising Medicare eligibility age off the table.

27. Shaleshock is reporting another delay on the report, this is great news!

It was widely know that the health aspects on hydraulic hydrofracturing was eerily absent from the report.

Kudos on New York State and Governor Cuomo for taking the time to properly require the input on health aspects into the report.

For now, we breath a sigh of relief; however temporarily.

In the meantime, we ORGANIZE!
