First of all, Governor Cuomo had said that he wanted to “let the science decide” whether fracking posed serious health consequences to the citizens of New York State, and Concerned Health Professionals of NY gladly obliged by compiling a comprehensive analysis of the health aspects and implications related to the process. Shortly after the release of the 2nd volume, Cuomo made the decision to ban fracking in NYS. On March 13, 2018, the group released the fifth edition of the report, which you can find at the Concerned Health Professionals of NY website.
Other nearby organizations working against fracking and new pipelines include Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy, Catskill Mountainkeeper, Damascus Citizens for Sustainability, Delaware Riverkeeper, Environmental Advocates of New York, Frack Action, New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), Otsego 2000, Riverkeeper, and Stop the Frack Attack.
National environmental associations helping to oppose fracking in NYS, as well as in other parts of the country, include Americans Against Fracking, Food and Water Watch, National Resource Defense Council, and the Sierra Club. The Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club has played a major role in moving the club to take a side against fracking.
On the positive side of the ledger, Alliance for a Green Economy (AKA AGREE New York) has a lot of information and useful links related to current renewable energy efforts in NYS, including the REV (Renewing the Energy Vision) process. Other organizations working to move our state in a positive direction towards a renewable energy future include Alliance for Clean Energy NY, New York State Energy Democracy Alliance and Sane Energy Project.
