Fracking involves the injection of a toxic soup of water, chemicals, and sand underground to explode rock formations that contain gas. The process produces radioactive wastewater, climate-changing methane emissions, air pollution, and groundwater contamination. This soil contamination and pollution, combined with land development and water consumption, threaten the health, safety and viability of New York’s production of dairy products, fruit and vegetbles, beer, wine and other foods. It could have a devastating impact on the pride of our state.
This is why hundreds of farmers, brewers, vintners, chefs and other food producers are joining with consumer, health, environmental and food organizations in calling on Governor Cuomo to ban fracking in New York.
