D'autres preuves de la dangerosité de l'exploitation des gaz de schiste?

Message reçu le jeudi 29 mars 2012.


Pascal --


This morning, a fracking compressor exploded in Northeast Pennsylvania, 
just 30 miles south of Binghamton.

As black smoke billows from the site, emergency crews from three counties are on the scene. The most recent reports suggest that workers are still trying to shut off the flow of gas.[1] Luckily, no injuries have been reported so far.

The compressor station takes gas, extracted from the Marcellus Shale by hydrofracking, and pressurizes it for transport. Stations like these would spring up across New York if Governor Cuomo and the Department of Environmental Conservation approve fracking in our state.

Poisoned water[2], earthquakes[3], and now explosions. What more evidence do we need that fracking is too dangerous?

Sign our petition and urge Governor Cuomo to ban fracking in New York State.


Thanks for your help. We'll let you know when we have more information.
