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...

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 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.

Maybe people are scared ,Here in Australia Coal Seam gas is being heralded by politicians as the great job creator and ecconomic boom.The corporations involved want more money now and fouling our drinking water forever and destroying arible land is just "collateral damage"(heard that before)

What if those leading this "movement" changed the wording from "Against" Fracking to an equally powerful phrase that states what we're "For"?

Fracking in the West on public lands is contaminating the water supplies and creating superfund sites. It will kill all the wild horses and animals. The BLM is rounding up all the wild horses so they won't die from fracking poisons in the water supplies and cause a public uproar. see more wild horse info at www.windwildhorse.com blog. Please save our parks and public lands from fracking too, not just NY.
The big money people are so greedy, they will stop at nothing to get more money and at...

The big money people are so greedy, they will stop at nothing to get more money and at the expense of people, animals and the environment for years to come. It must be stopped now before it is too late. Clean up will be impossible. Death and sickness will be the headlines if the water supplies are ruined for the future generations. Who wants to drink filtered water that was full of toxic waste.

It never ceases to amaze me that so little is done to harness the clean and infinite supply of solar energy, not to mention wind and tides. Shift the focus just 4 degrees. Seems we love to create filth to maintain our addiction to fossil fuel. So pathetic and dangerous.

I worked in WV, PA, and North Dakota and as much as the wells go down is bad! Seeing some of theses videos blew my mind. I no longer pull sand for theses well sites.

I have seen the destruction fracking has caused, not only in damage to the environment, but also to the health of those without clean water. I have joined the cause, shared with my friends and family and have tweeted Gov. Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) to ban fracking in NY. Take a moment a send a quick tweet. Please include hashtag #Don'tFrackNY! Thank you.
