Happening Now

1280px-Pipes_for_keystone_pipeline_in_2009.jpgToday the oil and gas industry is trying to run roughshod across the U.S., disregarding our health and environment, the sovereign rights of Indigenous nations, farmers' interests, and the voices of millions of Americans who care about our climate. We are coming to you with a call to action, both on a national fight, and one here at home. 

Today, Catskill Mountainkeeper joined with 182 organizations in four states to tell the Delaware River Basin Commission to ban fracking in the watershed.  

As our own Wes Gillingham said, “New York State banned high volume fracking because of the overwhelming scientific evidence of its threats—especially those to public health. The Delaware River Basin Commission must do the same. This is the only course to protect our water, air, health and communities—it’s one that Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Wolf supports, one that New York’s Governor Cuomo has implemented, and we urge all of the commissioners to follow their lead.”

Read the full release and letter here.  And watch Pennsylvania's Governor Tom Wolf commit to supporting a fracking ban in the watershed here (h/t to our friends at Food & Water Watch for capturing the moment on video).

Today, Mountainkeeper’s Kathy Nolan proudly stood alongside NYS Attorney General Schneiderman to support the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and warn against the EPA Director Puritt's proposal to slash the agency budget.  We couldn't have picked a better day--this morning Pruitt denied that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming,  Mountainkeeper will continue to fight for the agency that protects our air, water, and great outdoors.  Pruitt's climate denying mindset coupled with proposed cuts is devastating, unethical, and dangerous for us and the environment.
