Why We Should NOT be Fracking for Natural Gas

Remarks at the National Press Club

Newsmaker Press Conference

Washington, DC

24 May 2011

Adrian Kuzminski, 

Moderator, Sustainable Otsego

Cooperstown, NY

My name is Adrian Kuzminski. I'm the Moderator of Sustainable Otsego, an

advocacy group in the Cooperstown, NY, area. We have played a key role in the growing grassroots resistance to fracking for natural gas in the Marcellus shale region. As part of this effort, we have brought together a collection of documents, "Frack Facts," which covers most aspects of gas extraction from leases to pollution problems to effects on economics and property values. This collection, periodically updated and expanded, currently has hundreds of items running to over 2000 pages. 

This document was originally undertaken at the request of Congressman Michael Arcuri in 2008. Earlier versions of it were submitted to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and to the EPA during their recent public comment periods on gas drilling. Copies are available here today. My remarks are based on the findings presented in these documents. Our conclusion is that the practice of fracking for natural gas should NOT be allowed to go forward.
