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)

Fracking ruins our environment.
I worked with INN netwrok asnd learned the bad news about fraking , please learn more and make it stop now. preserving the planet is our duty and respect to our civilizations! lua botani
Mr. Cuomo , please ban fracking in ny!!!
You are all idiots.
Why's that 'Biff' .....?
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
FRACK BABY FRACK UNLESS THE HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRITES GIVE UP THE LIMOS, PLANES AND HUGE MANSIONS!
this actor is an idiot DEFEAT AND ALLOW FRACKING!!
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?
This Fracking GREED is indefensible. When all the drinkable water on earth is gone, all life is gone with it. Then no amount of $$ will be able to save ourselves, because it will be too late. What we do to the planet, we ultimately do to ourselves. Water will always be more precious than OIL and GAS so let's stop the insanity and put PEOPLE and the planet before GREED, the deadliest sin of all.
Over 200 artists have already joined the OUTCRY against FRACKING in New York state alone. Don't let corporate greed FRACK WITH YOUR HEALTH & THE FUTURE OF OUR PLANET!!!
This is very dangerous, it must stop. There are non-hazardous energy. Solar energy, wind.
You people know nothing!
At this stage, solar and wind energy is too expensive and impractical.
All I see here are a bunch of pansie assed tree huggers whinning. Yet. I bet that each and everyone of you are sitting in your oil gas electric heated homes, bathing in hit bubbly bath tub driving your electric cars where the battery causes more contamination to the planet than does oil or coal. Get off your high fluting asses move into some cave and start wearing buck skin for clothing. Everthing we use in energy produced
And tell the queer lover gun banning Jerry as governor to not listen to this post and Frack Baby Frack so we can stop sucking on the Arab tit
