2,000 rally in N.Y. capital against hydraulic fracturing (Boston Globe – subscription)

Jun 18th, 2013 | By | Category: General

About 2,000 opponents of fracking rallied Monday outside New York’s Capitol, and a new statewide poll found a slight increase in voters statewide who oppose the method of drilling for natural gas.

The demonstrators cheered announcement of the poll results while urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo to permanently ban hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in New York, saying it would harm the environment. Pending legislation would impose that moratorium, but rally organizers acknowledged it is unlikely to be enacted.
