There is a near 100% month-long PRESS BLACKOUT on this story locally.
Only one news outlet (Jim Ehmke/WIVT) of EIGHT in Binghamton
have done a substantive report on this story.

According the Jeff Platsky of the Press and Sun Bulletin,
this is not news until there is proven contamination,
proven harms....

BUT ISN'T THAT TOO LATE???

Please call the Editor of the Press and Sun Bulletin,
the Ithaca Journal, the Elmira Star Gazette, and the Corning Leader
and the New York Times
and all other local, regional, state, and national media and

DEMAND that they inform 160,000 NYers
their water is at risk NOW
from contamination from Fracking
despite the NY moratorium.

local action:
WHY IS A TAX-EXEMPT ORGANIZATION PROMOTING SHALE GAS EXTRACTION ???
Chambers of Commerce are designated as 501-c-6
IRS status,
so they should not be primarily politically affiliated,
but
Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce
is unabashedly pro-fracking!!! They should promote our long-time upstate tourism-driven smaller businesses, which would be ruined by fracking’s effect on the land.
CITIZENS PROTEST:
BK Energy Services, Inc. “Marcellus Shale Supply Chain Seminar”
Tuesday OCTOBER 16th @ 83 Front Street, 7:30am
BK Services is a water hauler for the natural gas industry and has been a go-to provider for natural gas explorations.

I'm not sure what can be done about that... the Business Chamber is all about $$$$$, so they promote whatever comes along which seems to promote money and jobs.

Could be building death camps, they'd be for it if it creates jobs...
