As New York slowly recovers from Superstorm Sandy's devastating impacts, increasing our reliance on fracked natural gas is precisely the wrong way to go.

Yet, late last year, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation issued draft regulations that could open New York up to fracking despite the fact that the state's own health review of the practice is not yet finished.

Fracking routinely uses toxic chemicals and can permanently contaminate drinking water sources. It also generates toxic air emissions and toxic, radioactive wastewater.

The state has begun a 30-day comment period on the proposed fracking regulations. Together we can submit a record-breaking number of public comments and win the battle to ban fracking in New York.

Please use the form below to tell the Department of Environmental Conservation not to frack New York.
