In response to today’s Quinnipiac poll which showed more New Yorkers opposed to fracking than supportive of it, New Yorkers Against Fracking released the following statement:

“As time goes on and New Yorkers learn more facts about fracking, their opposition hardens. More and more New Yorkers have seen the supposed economic benefits of fracking in nearby states turning to a bust. But the air and water contamination and negative health impacts remain for local families and communities to deal with. The only people who gain from fracking are out-of-state oil and gas companies,” said Alex Beauchamp of Food and Water Watch and New Yorkers Against Fracking.
