NY-21 Green Party Candidate Hassig Calls Upon County Legislature to
Bring EPA Here for Public Discussion of Fracking Science
During the public forum of the February 10, 2014 meeting of the St.
Lawrence County Legislature, Donald L. Hassig, Green Party candidate
in NY-21 made a presentation on the subject of fracking damages to the
environment and the harm to public health that is found to be
associated with fracking pollution. Mr. Hassig called upon the
Legislature to write to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
in request of EPA participation in a local discussion of fracking
Fracking is a national issue. St. Lawrence County is part of America
and must have a voice in national environmental protection. St.
Lawrence County consumes considerable quantities of natural gas.
Knowledge of the damages to environment and health caused by fracking
is an essential part of any continued consumption.
“Without any public discussion of fracking science it is easy for the
oil and gas companies to just keep on fracking. Bringing out the
Truth about fracking pollution will bring an end to this harmful
practice. Under the bright light of public scrutiny, EPA and the
fracking corporations will be found to have no defense against the
charge that fracking is bad for America. Too much pollution added on
top of too much pollution already is simply far too much pollution.
Fracking means more poison, more cancer. It must be stopped.”-Donald
