It is appallingly apathetic that this petition was started over 30 days ago and only 43 people have signed on! Isn't anyone reposting this? Come on! Just what heinous tragedy has to occur before people will start worrying more about the devastating ecological threats being jammed down our throats than being "politically correct" with the people in our lives!

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men [and women] to do nothing." Edmund Burke.

I don't understand as well. People don't seem to feel very concerned....

Donna.....Too many people are not familiar with fracking, which is probably the reason for the low amount of signatures. I live in PA, where they allowed it without putting strict regulations in place first--and now the problems are beginning to surface. It all comes down to $$....Yes, people need work and money--but at what cost?

I understand what is happening, people are waking up and realizing the scam the EPA and the liberals are running to get their name in the headlines and making things up. If Obama and the democrat liberals would stop interfering with any use of America's natural resources that are plentiful then fracking would be a total last resort and would probably never happen because if we used the readily available oil in the country, that would save the economy long enough to get a real alternative to...

If Obama and the democrat liberals would stop interfering with any use of America's natural resources that are plentiful then fracking would be a total last resort and would probably never happen because if we used the readily available oil in the country, that would save the economy long enough to get a real alternative to fossil fuels instead of wasting our entire future and trillions of dollars to reward the democrat donor companies with their hopeless strategy which are going bankrupt daily at we and our ancestors expense for the next 2 or 3 generations. As far as the pollution from fracking, if the EPA can't find enough to warrant shutting every thing down then they will pump it into the area all the while they are experimenting on human guinea pigs(of course the media neglected to report on them), to prove the particles and gases in the atmosphere are making people sick.

I and many others have been protesting about this for months...months. There have been hearings and all sorts of petitions about this that many have signed. Do you support any environmental groups? Riverkeeper? Clearwater? Greenpeace? These groups have sent out petitions. I have FBooked the governor a number of times about this and my state senators. Many are protesting this. Glad you finally found out.

I've tried to sign and the 'Sign the Petition' button is disabled. Neither is it working for a colleague who I posted it too. Perhaps that's the reason so few signatures.

Hard to take this stuff seriously when it's packed with lies about the process.

That's because it's bullshit just like Global Warming. There is nothing to be concerned about. This reminds me of when you Eco lunatics wanted to stop the Trans Alaskan Pipeline back in the 70's because it would destroy the Caribou population. But, wait. IT DIDN'T. As a matter of fact, now the caribou population is HUGE. Almost to the point of overpopulation. Why, because the same pipeline that was going to destroy the Caribou, kept the lichens growing in winter because the pipeline...

Why, because the same pipeline that was going to destroy the Caribou, kept the lichens growing in winter because the pipeline generated heat below it and kept the permafrost from forming and allowing FOOD TO GROW that didn't grow there before. This fracking technology has been around for decades. You fools are just now finding out about it. And of course, because you eco hippy types, have to have something to make you feel important, you are now, immediately against it. You people are FOOLS.

The same is happening in my suburb, in the state of NSW, Australia. Fight the good fight. If gov's at all levels- local/state/federal- refuse to protect the environment and communities then the responsibility lies with the people to demand environmental stewardship governed by environmental ethics be legislated- to protect our future and the planet. This planet iis our only life support. Use the known scientific facts to loudly and clearly confront the greed driven corporations and gov...

Really? Really? Gov. Cuomo, We need a petition for this? You live in Upstate NY and you know Long Island and how beautiful NYS is. You would consider poisoning it for political gain? God save your soul.

New Hampshire - there are alternatives - it will take time & change slowly as we all act each day.. but we can make changes that make a differance.
