Siena: Upstate Opposition to Fracking Grows

Albany – A new Siena poll shows that residents Upstate remain strongly opposed to fracking in New York. The following statement is from Katherine Nadeau, policy director of Environmental Advocates of New York:

“No matter how much money the industry funnels through its propaganda machine, Upstate New Yorkers cannot be manipulated into believing that fracking is some sort of silver bullet. By one of the widest margins yet, Upstate residents oppose fracking by a lopsided 52-34 percent. The fracking industry has attempted to bully and coerce the state into fracking every step of the way, but their tactics have alienated the very people who would be impacted by their drilling.”
