Am I naive but can the people of New York State ban “fracking” in the State? Can we issue cease and desist orders for any such operations existing in the State? Or is it because they approach individual home owners who need the money that they agree to let them drill on their “property”? We should do everything in our power to discontinue or prevent the use of this process. This is so disheartening. It looks again that the rich giant corporations (Halliburton, et al) can entice families with meager cash offering to poisoin ourselves and the seven generations to come!
