Fracking – New York hearings – an update

Today and tomorrow will be the last public hearings on New York State’s plan to allow hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking.

Tuesday 11/29, 1-4 pm and 6-9 pm
Sullivan County Community College, Seelig Theatre, 112 College Road, Loch Sheldrake, NY 12759
Wednesday 11/30, 1-4 pm and 6-9 pm
Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007

I’m eager to see what will happen as I’ve immersed myself in this issue since January, exploring shale gas exploration in PA.
I’ve written a few stories on the subject, see here and here and on the the blog.

Below are some recent images taken in Pennsylvania in Bradford and Susquehanna counties.
