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)

The only way to stop the advancing pollution from a blowout (and even this isn't 100%) is to blow up the well head to allow the gas and chemicals to find a path of least resistance and vent to the air instead. Setting fire to the opening will burn off the poisons. the most effective use of this method is proactive use on non - leaking wells. But the most sure way is to not frack in the first place. That way the people of New York will not be forced to defend themselves with the other methods.

... I never oppose something without showing there's better alternatives that are more-efficient and less-costly. I agree with scientist Harry Braun that we need a Solar-Hydrogen Economy. Hydrogen has no pollutants, and if produced from water (not derived from petrochemical refining), it is the most environmentally friendly way to go with fuel. Please study his website http://PhoenixProjectFoundation.US for more on this, self-sufficient communities, and 21st-Century U.S. Constitutional...

Cheaper wind-power for electricity? See http://www.skysails.info/english/power/power-system/ = SkySails, more efficient than propeller wind-turbines! And...... Better solar power, far more cost-efficient, giving ten billion people U.S.-standard-of-living electricity for every human on Earth for under 2¢/KWH? See http://lunarsolarpowersystem.blogspot.com (coming soon,
a new website, http://lunarsolarpower.org will promote LSP).

Australia is suffering from Fracking too.... LOCK THE GATE campaigning by landowners alone is not enough to stop greedy government. This does need to be a WHOLE WORLD MOVEMENT to stop fracking methods contaminating our earth.
