Two Items about Gas Drilling: GOOD NEWS!

Two excellent gas drilling news items in the last couple of days, worthy of celebration.

1) After massive public pressure (e.g., ) and the receipt of nearly 70,000 comments!!! the DRBC has pushed back their decision to allow fracking in the Delaware River basin by 1 month.


2) After an incredible public hearing in Watkins Glen Sept. 27, the NY DEC has offered a second public hearing for the LPG facility in Watkins Glen on Nov. 3, and has extended the deadline for public comments for a month until Nov. 14, 2011.

I know that delays do not exactly seem like a victory, but I have a feeling deep inside me that says the tide is beginning to turn.

Keep up the pressure!
