To The Editor:
People are getting sick from gas drilling. From state to state, over and over again, the gas companies deny responsibility and the DEP, EPA, and the DEC turns its back on the people they’re supposed to protect.
Politicians and gas companies assured us that what happened in the Barnet Shale wouldn’t happen in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale … but it did. Now they say, ‘NY will have better regulations!’ ‘The DEC will protect us!’ ‘Those problems won’t happen here.’ But, they already have.
