NY Fracking Bans put Opportunity at Risk – America needs the Energy
i hope you will become active at http://energycitizens.org/ec/advocacy/wire.aspx
New York’s recent court decision that upholds the rights of municipalities to prohibit natural gas development shows the need for increased energy citizenship and activism in New York state. These court decisions allow local politicians to override property rights and pre-empt state law, and if allowed to stand they will pose a major threat to future energy development in the Empire State. A detailed post at the Energy In Depth blog explains the flaws in these decisions and why they are likely to be overturned. These bans are clearly a result of opposition to common sense energy policy in New York. That’s why it’s important that Energy Citizens like you stay active and speak out for energy investment in the state. Other states have shown that natural gas development (and the economic growth it brings) can go hand-in-hand with environmental protection. The misinformation about natural gas drilling prevalent in New York needs to be counteracted. It’s up to Energy Citizens like you to tell the truth about this important issue.
