Thanks to citizens’ participation and awareness, New York State, where I live, has enjoyed a 5-year moratorium on the barbaric, and incredibly destructive to all life, practice of #fracking. However, it is now up for review in Albany!

“Don’t Frack with New York!” Tell Gov. Cuomo: Ban Fracking Now!

Campaign cash is flooding the halls of the Capitol. Since 2007, pro-fracking companies and organizations have donated more than $14 million to state and legislative candidates.

That cash isn’t going unnoticed at the Capitol, but neither is your voice. Last week’s 5th anniversary of New York’s moratorium on #hydrofracking proves that people-power can beat back the influence of campaign cash.

Anti-Fracking Rally at Cuomo’s State of the State

Albany, NY, USA


President Putin has officially announced that Russia will NOT allow fracking on its territory due to its barbaric nature and proven damage to the environment.
What about us, US?
To all those who care about our Earth and our future: Say NO to #fracking, YES to renewable energy! Help set the RIGHT precedent on the American continent! Join me, and millions of others, to demand that #NewYork ban #fracking now! 


EARTH with fracking:

Extreme water pollution and flammability is connected to fracking in various states. One of the disastrous examples is New York’s neighbor, Pennsylvania, which allows fracking freely. And this is just one of the adverse effects! Among others is drastic increase in seismic activity, with quakes and tremors registering as often as several times a day in states like Texas! What is next?
