Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon among New Yorkers to Announce Record Number of Public Comments on Cuomo Administration’s Proposed Fracking Rules as 30-day Comment Period Set to End

Coalition of state’s residents opposed to fracking will make announcement, transport boxes of comments to DEC for submission

WHAT:                  Press conference and delivery of public comments on state’s proposed fracking regulations

WHEN:                  Friday, January 11 at 12 noon

WHERE:                Legislative Office Building, Room 711-A, Albany, NY

WHO:                    New Yorkers Against Fracking
                                Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon, Artists Against Fracking
                                Biologist Sandra Steingraber, PhD, Concerned Health Professionals of NY
Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy

VISUALS:             Dozens of boxes filled with public comments from New Yorkers on fracking regulations

WHY:                     New Yorkers have been consistently expressing their opposition to fracking to Governor Cuomo, including thousands who came to the Capitol for a demonstration before his State of the State address on Wednesday. The governor is weighing whether or not to allow fracking in New York and Friday marks the last day of the 30-day comment period on the Cuomo administration’s draft regulations. Among the millions of New Yorkers opposed to fracking, those submitting comments have done so under protest because they do not believe any regulations can prevent the dangers the process poses, and disagree with the Cuomo administration’s decision to release draft fracking regulations before its own health review has been completed and made public.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
