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.

I lived in NYC for nearly 20 years and in the beautiful Catskills for almost five. NYC has some of the best water in the country. Why? Because it comes from the watersheds of the Delaware River. Because it comes from the pure snows of the mountains. Yet these are the places the gas companies are hungry to exploit, Using over a million of gallons of that water for just one well, making it unfit to drink forever, or dumping the responsibility for its restoration on local water facilities that...

I lived in NYC for nearly 20 years and in the beautiful Catskills for almost five. NYC has some of the best water in the country. Why? Because it comes from the watersheds of the Delaware River. Because it comes from the pure snows of the mountains. Yet these are the places the gas companies are hungry to exploit, Using over a million of gallons of that water for just one well, making it unfit to drink forever, or dumping the responsibility for its restoration on local water facilities that don't have the equipment to actually make it safe again. They will plow up fields and forests, spew pollutants into the air with both their drilling and the trucks that will disturb the peace of the residents who live there. When I lived there my water came from the springs that run through the many layers of Catskill rock, the very rock they want to push poisonous fluids through to gain access to fossil fuels. How can this not effect the springs upstate residents rely on for pure, drinkable water? What will it take to convince you that very serious and independent studies MUST be done before the water for New York residents both upstate and in NYC is put at risk. Americans use water like there is no tomorrow. As if clean potable water is an infinite resource. I hope you are smart enough to know that nothing could be further from the truth. It takes centuries for rain water to percolate into aquifers and be made pure. It only takes one accident to poison our ground water for a very long time.

Maybe if Fracking can be stopped in NY , it may be stopped here in Australia too.

I hope you get the sigs you need, we in Texas are happy to have the money and the jobs. I mean I just signed up for well two on my property and had to fight the city on that. But since they were making all the money for the city on public land, and trying to regulate land pools and well numbers, they backed down and let us get on the money train to! Keep up the good work guys!
