Pennsylvania Farmers on Fracking

Here’s video from a forum called “Hydrofracking and Agriculture—the Promise & the Reality,” held March 15, 2011 in Penn Yan, New York. The forum was sponsored by the Committee to Preserve the Fingerlakes and the Coalition to Protect New York.
Listen to stories of farmers who’ve lost huge numbers of livestock in Pennsylvania after hydrofracking came on the scene. Accounts of people with benzene, phenol, arsenic, formaldehyde, toluene, and ethylene glycol in their blood, too.
If hydrofracking gets the go ahead here, and things go badly in New York State, we won’t be able to say these good people of Western Pennsylvania didn’t warn us.
