New York Organic Farmers Protest Fracking and Support Ban on Hydro-Fracking Albany January 23.

Environmental groups, including New York farmers rallied in Albany on January 23, 2012 to call for a legislative ban on hydraulic fracturing of natural gas wells, saying that no amount of regulation can make the process safe.

According to today’s article in the Washington Examiner, there are several Bills pending in the New York State Legislature that are likely to pass as activists lobby for the passage of several bills.
