Default Gas Drilling Is Called Safe in New York

I had an urge to put this in the "Media" section because it's shows the NYT being the partisan hacks they are...

The "story" here is NOT that gas drilling is safe in new York...

The "story" here is that this report was KEPT HIDDEN FROM THE PUBLIC by the governor and the New York Health Department because they were scared of their Leftwing base...THAT should've been the headline...

Gas Drilling Is Called Safe in New York

Quote:
The state’s Health Department found in an analysis it prepared early last year that the much-debated drilling technology known as hydrofracking could be conducted safely in New York, according to a copy obtained by The New York Times from an expert who did not believe it should be kept secret.

The analysis and other health assessments have been closely guarded by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and his administration as the governor weighs whether to approve fracking. Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, has long delayed making a decision, unnerved in part by strident opposition on his party’s left. A plan to allow a limited amount of fracking in the state’s Southern Tier along the Pennsylvania border is still seen as the most likely outcome, should the drilling process receive final approval.

The eight-page analysis is a summary of previous research by the state and others, and concludes that fracking can be done safely. It delves into the potential impact of fracking on water resources, on naturally occurring radiological material found in the ground, on air emissions and on “potential socioeconomic and quality-of-life impacts.”

Gas Drilling Is Called Safe in New York
Huh? I was born and raised in the Southern Tier area of New York State (Chautauqua County), near Erie, Pennsylvania. They have been drilling natural gas wells there forever. Right across the border is Titisville and Oil City, Pa., nothing but oil and gas wells. My aunt had a farm south of Buffalo and had six natural gas wells drilling there for 30-years, she sold the drilling rights right after she bought the farm, and never had to work a day in her life. What in the hell is fracking? Some new type of drilling. Entire area from Buffalo, N.Y. all along that Lake Erie shore is soft limestone, anybody who drills hits gas or oil.........stan
