We have generated in JUST 30 DAYS ~same num. comments in 3 YEARS of commenting on the SGEIS!

DEC will be getting ~50,000 comments on the new regulations
from just two groups (Sandra's 30/30, and Catskill Citizens).

I'm going to stick my neck out and make a prediction (SWAG)
that DEC will be receiving 70-80,000 comments on the new proposed regs.
This means that in JUST 30 DAYS, we have produced the about
the approximately same number of comments which we generated
 in 3 years of commenting  on the SGEIS!

9/30/09-12/30/09 => 13,000 comments on dSGEIS
11/11/11-1/11/12 => 66,000 comments on the rdSGEIS
12/12/12-1/11/13 => ~80,000 ~210,000! comments (est) Proposed Fracking Regulations

Take that, Quinnipiac Poll!!!

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)

Bill, this date range looks incorrect.

Great news, all the same! Very heartening.
