Review for Community Environmental Defense Council Inc, Ithaca, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This non-profit group has been instrumental in raising local and national awareness to the hazards of fracking (horizontal hydraulic fracturing). In the face of the industry coming into NY, they have organized concerned citizens, protested, and worked to help pass local regulations. One action was Sandra Steingraber's thirtydaysoffrackingregs.com/letters to the DEC, which CEDC helped publicize, and which culminated in a definite public influence on the DEC's recent decision to hold off on fracking for now. Many, many people are being informed through the work of this group. The protest at Albany this week, partly through the informing efforts of the CEDC, boasted more people than any prior environmental protest in New York.
