What a victory for New York’s water and public health. Thank you, Governor Cuomo, DEC Commissioner Martens and Acting Health Commissioner Zucker, for allowing the science showing the harms of fracking to be the basis for New York State DEC’s decision to prohibit fracking. And thanks to all of the health care professionals, scientists, elected officials, community activists and grassroots groups who worked so hard to make sure the right decision was made.
