NOON is working with allies across New York to advocate a total ban on hydrofracking in the state. In January, 2013, thousands of protesters called for a ban at Governor Cuomo's State of the State address in Albany. Then, anti-frackers delivered more than 204,000 comments against the proposed fracking regulations. The movement to ban hydrofracking is growing daily!

NOON and the Onondaga Nation oppose hydrofracking because of the intensive resource use and the environmental and health impacts that are often incurred from the drilling process, inevitable accidents, and their aftermath. Hydrofracking will harm our communities, our land, our water, and our air; the impacts will be felt for generations. Read more…
