Dedicated activists in upstate New York are fighting back against big energy companies with what else? Zoning ordinances and petitions. And it's working.

Noted & thanks, Cal. It always makes my day brighter to read of these grassroots efforts in small towns. This is remarkable, and will hopefully broaden around the country as fracking continues to expand. I recently read they're fracking in the LA area....with all the earthquakes that happen there, they are really pushing the limits of Mother Earth.

Damn right we are fighting. It's beautiful here in the Finger lakes and we intend to keep it that way. Greed is an awesome foe.

Thank you for the info about the invasive technology of horizontal drilling. It should be stated that it is not a viable
alternative to big Coal scooping mountains but rather all pervasive in threat to land and property.

Keep fighting, New Yorkers, we are behind you 100%. Fracking is dangerous and the companies that want to do it don't care about any of us.
