Tell Schumer: Don’t Frack New York
Yesterday, Chuck Schumer, our Senator, went on national television and said he’d be OK with fracking upstate New York.
Across the state, people are fighting every day to keep big oil and gas companies from coming to New York and wrecking their communities.
Most New Yorkers don’t want fracking. And study after study continues to show how harmful it can be to our drinking water, to our health and to the environment.
We can’t afford to let elected leaders like Chuck Schumer ignore the real dangers hydrofracking presents. The stakes are too high.

Dear Senator Schumer,
I was extremely troubled to hear about your comments in support of hydrofracking on yesterday’s “Morning Joe.”
Study after study continues to show that hydrofracking is harmful. It contaminates water supplies, it increases air pollution and it’s making people sick.
We need you to stand with the thousands of everyday people in New York who are fighting to keep big oil and gas companies from wrecking our communities.
We need you to lead New York into a real clean energy future, not double down on the failed energy policies of the past.
Don’t let New York get fracked.
