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.

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)

He'll frack and DESTROY NY and Take your guns too. Gov. Cuomo needs to take care of this.

Dear Governor Cuomo,
This is incredibly important to me because of the concern I have with the disastrous effects fracking causes, for example, safe drinking water and clean air-- a very simple but necessary part of our lives. Fracking does not only put our immediate future at risk. NYC is already being retrofitted for the current effects climate change has done in respect to current (and raising) levels of our seas. Especially after a hurricane like Sandy, we have seen and felt, truly, how...

Dear Governor Cuomo,
This is incredibly important to me because of the concern I have with the disastrous effects fracking causes, for example, safe drinking water and clean air-- a very simple but necessary part of our lives. Fracking does not only put our immediate future at risk. NYC is already being retrofitted for the current effects climate change has done in respect to current (and raising) levels of our seas. Especially after a hurricane like Sandy, we have seen and felt, truly, how vulnerable we would be to even higher sea levels. I live in Ohio, but I demand this on behalf of us all, not only as an American, but as a citizen of the world we call home. And that's why it's important to me. Home should be safe place -- and I believe that's why we're all fighting so hard for this.
Thank you.

Sincerely,
Katie

As an environmental engineer with a nuclear engineering degree, I'd like to see this issue help folks realize that we all would have been better off to agree to allow the development of acceptably safe methods to deal with nuclear wastes, and implement the use of nuclear facilities to generate the electricity our society seems to take for granted. Under the current preponderance of fossil fuel fired boilers, we continue to pollute the air. Nuclear fuel use to produce electrical energy...

As an environmental engineer with a nuclear engineering degree, I'd like to see this issue help folks realize that we all would have been better off to agree to allow the development of acceptably safe methods to deal with nuclear wastes, and implement the use of nuclear facilities to generate the electricity our society seems to take for granted. Under the current preponderance of fossil fuel fired boilers, we continue to pollute the air. Nuclear fuel use to produce electrical energy produces no carbon dioxide, nor any arsenic emissions which are very difficult to address in fossil fuel fired systems. Rather than railing against something, how about being for something?

I doubt I'll live long enough to see the nuclear fusion process used as a means of powering an electrical generator, but such could be even cleaner than the nuclear fission systems in use throughout the world today.

Do not wait anymore . As already so far many campaigns, advertisement has conveyed this message in different forms, so do not be indifferent to this call. Take action, here and now. See how easy, it's just a click of the key top.

Enough with this ridiculous " frackin" solution to our energy gluttony, Think conservation and renewables, not frickin' fracking!

Why aren't more people doing something about this? Everyone I know seems so disinterested, or don't know what you are talking about. What a blow to the environment, and people's health. These gas companies do whatever they feel like without regard to who, or what it is destroying. Come on WAKE UP before it is too late.
