Here's a little holiday good news, for those who live in NY!
``This is a very good example of public participation. Our DEC (one of the stongest in the country) originally ruled that hydrofracking would not affect the water quality in the area but we've received additional information and have not been able to come to a conclusion as to whether or not this is a good idea. Even with the tremendous revenues that will come in at this time -- over a billion dollars a year-- we're not going to risk public safety or water quality, which will be the next emerging global problem after the energy shortage. At this point, I would say that the hydrofracking opponents have raised enough of an argument to thwart us going forward at this time.`` -- NY Gov. David Paterson, WAMC, 24 Nov 2010
