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.
True, so true. You are correct in your thinking
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)

I'm involved in a similar action and petition in New Mexico, where our Governor here sees dollars and is endeavoring to expand tracking in New Mexico. I support New York and everyone everywhere in doing everything we can to stop fracking.
Fracking is tearing Mother Earth apart, not just in N.Y. but all over the world, here in the U.S.alone they are fracking in many state's in OK.S.D. N.D. there are so many place's right here, in the U.S.that our water is contamanated, so is the air, it is causeing earth quake's, where they have never been before, fire at our water spout's, the list is to long to put in this comment, as is the state's.Really is this what we want to leave our children, soon there will be no earth to leave them!
I AM NOT CHRISTIAN, BUT MY RELIGION(ISLAM)TEACHES ME TO BE MERCIFUL TO ALL MANKIND LIKE MY PROPHET MOHAMMED WAS.
How can anyone even think that fracking is safe! Or that it is worth the cost! Tell Governor Cuomo "Don't Frack New York!
That was my iPad misspelling yoko btw
I have had a petition for some time now, except I'm not Yokohama Ono or Mark Ruffalo...just peon oral surgeon, Scott Noren..my petition is at Change.org and is called Ban Fracking Federally...you can also find me at www.Facebook.com/federally-ban-fracking
They frack here in ND to get the oil out of the Baaken triangle. This state will never be the same.
You need to check your site! I signed the petition and nothing happened! It was not recorded!
