Hi Bill,
I just want to suggest that you add Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy to your list of groups fighting fracking. I know they'be been around for something like 3 years, have over 6500 members now, and have done a lot of very effective work on the issue.
Many thanks for your great work!

Thanks Heidi, got it. Thanks. My intention was to actually build links to all of those groups, and provide a brief description, but I just wanted to get the list out there... said...

Bill, thanks for compiling this list. I've done the same from time to time but it's hard to keep up with the growth in the number of groups - which is very encouraging!

A note about
Any self-organized, place-based organization fighting gas extraction in NYS or PA can be listed on It's an easy URL for people to remember until they get back to their computers, after having seen it on a bumper sticker or lawn sign. Plus, these advertising materials can be purchased at lowest cost by banding our orders together.

Just contact us with an "add us" note via the site at

Thanks Gasmain. I've known about your group, just forgot to add you. You are added now.

I understand you have certain criteria for admission to your list, but I was frustrated because I could never find a *master* list of all groups, so I decided to create one!

Perhaps you can link to my page?
