What the frack?

Dear Editor:

A new Environment New York report highlights fracking's dirty track record. The analysis of the oil and gas industry in Pennsylvania shows that all types of gas fracking companies are prone to infractions of environmental and public health protections. Over a nearly four-year period, the top 20 violators of regulations included Fortune 500 companies, mom-and-pop operators, and even companies like Chevron who tout their green records.

Taken all together, the worst offenders averaged a violation every single day that posed real risks to human health, air quality or drinking water.

This is just the latest study showing that fracking is a failure for our environment and health. That's why we're calling on New York's Congressional delegation to support a ban on fracking on federal public lands.
