SO In fracking, large amounts of sand, water and chemicals are injected deep underground at high pressures to extract natural gas from rock formations.OK,NOW HOW DO WE RETRACT THE CHEMICALS THAT WERE INJECTED UNDERGROUND,OR DO YOU JUST LET IT CONTAMINATE AND SEEP INTO ANYTHING UNDERGROUND? (O_O)

It's easier to convince people who can't pay their bills and are therefore at risk of losing their land that fracking isn't such a bad thing. Governor Cuomo appears to be between a rock and a hard place on this issue. The landowners are willing to lease their land to Big Oil because they need the money, and the vultures currently waving the money under their noses can't wait to get their claws on the natural gas sitting under their land before the competing vultures, who are still circling the area, beat them to it. It's simply a matter of Big Oil doing what it does best...

even the mining of sand to add to their toxic slurry is destructive. we need to stress alternatives and less demand instead.

The Upstate economy has been quite rough, but fracking will never be the way out. Most of the workers wouldn't even be local, anyway, and this would leave the environment destroyed, not to mention that natural gas is in such a great supply now, thanks to oversaturation of supply in the market, that they're not making any money in the near future selling it, so why do they keep trying to drill for more?

You are correct MM - this is shameful. Take advantage and reap rewards without consequences to them personally. It's criminal

After seeing what is happening in Pennsylvania, polluted water, worthless land, small quiet towns turned upside down with with tanker trucks coming and going 24/7 with no one being being held accountable for it. No new jobs created because the drillers follow the rigs and was the well is dry, they leave the site as is, one big slab of concrete and that is not to mention the 3 million gallons of water a day that is needed for this fracking process. There is nothing safe about it!
