Easy new way to comment on New York State dSGEIS by 5 pm Wednesday January 11th

January 11, 2012
James (Chip) Northrup has given us a wonderfully easy way to send comments on the draft environmental impact statement, called the dSGEIS, from all the major experts to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation by 5 pm today, Wednesday January 11th.
Please note that the link from Northrup, who is himself an expert, includes a tremendous amount of well-organized data, analysis, and logical arguments from a wide array of experts and knowledgeable people, so please continue to use this link as a resource for public testimony!
Whenever using this data, please add one sentence of your own as a preface to the experts’ testimony. Doing this will just take minutes of your time, and will help maintain the New York State moratorium on high-volume hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling (fracking). This is a national issue and everyone can comment.
All comments are being considered, even those from residents of other states!

    There are so many scientific studies coming out with new facts and information, that it is best to wait before leaping into legislation that may have unexpected adverse consequences. Many new studies and witnesses do report very adverse reactions!

    I’m urging the elected and appointed officials of New York State to KEEP THE CURRENT MORATORIUM ON HYDRAULIC FRACTURING.

    We do NOT need this gas. We need clean water and air to maintain our health. We already have cheap and efficient energy from wind, solar and other CLEAN, RENEWABLE SOURCES. Yo, folks, have you ever heard of a solar power spill? How about a wind power spill. I’ll bet you haven’t, because there’s no such thing.

    Gas-drilling companies, like other fossil fuel extraction companies are run by sociopaths and psychopaths. These are sick people, who present a false front of confidence and strength. They are NOT after the coal, the oil or the gas. They are after political control, power, and billions of dollars (to buoy their poor self-esteem), at the expense of public health, worker health and safety, the taxpayer and the democratic system. They enter these endeavors only because crooked politicians enable them, and the media doesn’t inform the public. The material is simply a vehicle. If they cared about jobs, would they leave their own workers vulnerable to illness and injury? If they cared about our energy security, would they ship so much of their product overseas?

    Learn from the growing catastrophe in Pennsylvania. Just say “NO!”

    PLEASE evaluate the effects that fracking has on the environment and more importantly the health of those who reside in this country.

    No! our well being comes first. In every instance and in all circumstance, our health is a priority to anything, anytime and anywhere. You cannot put a price on that ever. No bargaining. No to the god-awful practice. Use Hemp if you want but chemcials have no place in our lives or in our planet.

    The state of humanity is really in a sad place right now. We like to think of ourselves as civilized but yet we can be so grotesque in our care for one another. That is the bottom line in this whole thing it is not about water, it is not about health, it is about the simple fact that the powers that be just don’t care about human suffering if it’s not them suffering. This practice of gas drilling is not only ruining peoples lives it’s ruining this beautiful country.
