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!

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.

Governor Cuomo, consider the long view. How will you be remembered when the earth is increasingly wracked by climate change, and the water of 10 million people is undrinkable? Will the dollars earned by the companies working on these wells be compensation? WHAT ARE YOU THINKIING?

Governor Cuomo, consider the long view. How will you be remembered when the people of New York are freezing in the winter because theres no gas to heat their homes. And all the solar powered jets fell from the sky

I'm australian and we're just starting to consider this fracking stuff over here - so it's scary to read about what is happening in your country (and others that frack) and know that it's coming to Oz - temporary wealth versus clean water? how did it get to this?

Fracking Causes Earthquakes in Arkansas. This process has been going on for several years now here in Arkansas. Just 25 miles from where I live there were multiple earthquakes caused by fracking which produces great amounts of pressure down below the farmlands, neighborhoods, etc . It's. Really frightening when man can and has caused Earthquakes while searching out GAS. What is wrong with people? Are we just going to standby and say nothing while are lands are destroyed???
