Syracuse Frackdown: Rally Against Fracking Infrastructure at DEC Meeting

The NYS DEC is considering regulations and permits for proposed Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities in New York State. This is just one example of a massive fracking infrastructure build out in the state. Nat Gas pipelines, compressor stations, wastewater treatment, powerplant conversions, the LPG storage facility in Seneca Lake and now LNG export facilities are in the works and are all a part of the attempt to bring fracking into the state.

Frack Action, New Yorkers Against Fracking, Physicians Scientists & Engineers for Healthy Energy, and ShaleShockCNY called a press conference and rally ahead of the DECís information session on DECís proposed permitting program for the siting, construction, and operation of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities. The DEC public meeting and the press conference were had at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY on October 16, 2013. This event was also a part of the Global Frackdown, a global day (and week) of action against fracking. Learn more here:
