Statement re: Chesapeake Fracking Lease Announcement

Katherine Nadeau, Policy Director

“It is great news that Chesapeake Energy has dropped its greedy legal strategy to box landowners into leases signed onto before fracking’s many dangers came to light.

The fracking debate so far has been driven almost entirely by the industry’s bottom line. We hope this turn of events can now ensure the discussion remains focused on what is best for New Yorker’s overall public health and quality of life.”
